Returning from their internships, the students of Class 1-A are immediately thrown into more training by their homeroom teacher, Shouta Aizawa. For this exercise, the class will be joining four students from Isamu Academy High School to compete in a survival game. Split up into groups of four, students must either eliminate each other or stay hidden until time runs out to win.

The training also acts as a reunion between Tsuyu Asui and her friend from middle school, Habuko Mongoose. However, not all the students from Isamu are friendly—Katsuki Bakugou almost instantly picks a fight with Romero Fujimi. The conflict between the two leads Romero to angrily release his Quirk, a gas which zombifies anyone it comes in contact with. How will the remaining students deal with the situation after most of the people around them turn into zombies?

First of all, I would like to start my review by complementing the Production House. Frankly speaking, I loved the job that the production house have done. Previous year, they released season 1 and this year season 2 with double the episodes of 1st season along with this OVA too, unlike attack on titan.

FYI at this point we know in the animated series, UA Sports Festival has just ended and all the UA students have gone to complete their internships under different agencies.

The name of the OVA and the trailer gives us the glimpse ...

*********This review contains minor spoilers of the OVA*********

So first of all, currently the anime is up to episode 13 of season 2. This OVA contains minor spoilers for something that will happen later in season 2. I still recommend watching this though because it is very enjoyable.

The art and sound are both pretty good (8), but nothing to major (EXCEPT the part where Izuku uses full cowl, I loved the animation for that part)

The story is interesting(9) since it shows more tough training that the students of class A have to undergo, in order to become better heroes. The training is also very good foreshadowing ...

Mixed Feelings
Just personal scratch.
Advised, possible spoilers.
Opinion & Informal

Art: 6/10 It was fine. Nothing new from the original anime series and was about the same quality. Art style was modern type. Anatomy of human type characters and overall proportions checked out. Some minor impact shots. No expanses of any type showcasing art skill, nature, etc.

Animation: 6/10 Since this was a 90% anime original story it was nice that this was pretty much "new animation." They didn't cop out and actually animated things decently. For example, they animated Bakugo's whole fighting sequence as well as other action scenes. Some shortcuts were taken such as reusing that one ...
