I did enjoy the plot idea of the first couple of episodes of this show, especially with all the different and unique quirks used in the battles between classmates of 1a and 1b. It's nice how they bring back the fights from season 2 and make them even better with their new special moves and all that. However, in my opinion, the battles were just so boring, and it was the only reason why I gave up watching the show and started to speed read the manga. I knew that the fights between both classes are only a couple of chapters long, and after that, read more

This show got worse? I’m sorry, but what the fuck are you talking about? How is this any different than it has ever been?

Ever since working from home became a thing, my alcoholism has gotten exponentially worse, and I think I’m dying. Sometimes I’ll stand up, and then just find myself on the floor. Other times I can’t tell if I’m hungover, legitimately ill, or if I simply laid down funny and part of my body fell asleep. I’ve been an insomniac for years, but now my circadian rhythm is completely fucked. But the biggest issue is my memory. I’d rather eat nails than read more

The pros of Boku no Hero Academia s5 are pretty obvious. The characters are still fun, well developed quirks, worldbuilding, etc. Storywise there's not so much so far. The art and sound are still fine to me. Whatever.

I just want to focus on the bad parts of s5 mostly. The class A vs B story arc sounds pretty fun in concept. Here's my problems with it though. (The first fight has less problems than the second in my opinion).

To say I was going into the 5th season of My Hero Academia with high expectations would be an understatement. Even though I’m not a My Hero Academia enthusiast or even a fan for that matter, I can wholeheartedly say that this season of My Hero Academia was supposed to be the series game-changer and tone shifter. The 5th season was supposed to set My Hero Academia in a new and more compelling direction. A direction that would’ve brought My Hero Academia’s writing to a new height because of the fascinating and enchanting thematic value that it has to offer. As the egregious season has read more

It's 2021 and we can call My Hero Academia a major franchise among Shounen Jump's IPs. While it may not be the single biggest hit of the decade, it does challenge the Big Three with its cult following. That doesn't mean MHA is a masterpiece franchise just because it's popular. In fact, MHA may be one of more controversial anime this year.

My Hero Academia is a franchise that needs no introduction at this point. It's been an established franchise for years and we all came to know the heroes and villains that makes up its roster. For any long time fan, MHA has also explored read more

This season starts off well, but leaves you in a spot of feeling like this is going to be a filler based on other long term anime. I was tricked too and picked it back up after 2 months. This season is getting really juicy and goes further into details in regards to "One for All" as well as some soon to be big fights. Stick around through the initial match ups for Deku's fight. TRUST me! It gets good and the whole story is starting to unravel.... You could technically skip a few episodes, but I don't want to spoil anything.

Season five of MHA is here, and while I do personally enjoy the series, I do have to say that it might be within your best interests to wait for the series to either be finished, or wait until a few episodes have come out in order to progress with it. Not to say it's bad, but more that it at current stage, may take weeks to really go somewhere. Even if you understand the plot, understand what it's doing. Even then, it can be quite tiresome.

I normally don't fully agree with the idea that 'Read the manga it's better' type of deal, as read more

The fifth season of Boku No Pico Academia is finally here. Welp, I guess it's now time for me to review this thing.

This review will have some spoilers BUT THERE WON'T BE ANY BIG SPOILERS SO NO WORRIES :D.

I don't even know why I called them spoilers; the stuff I'll be mentioning are so little I can really just say this review is spoiler free.

Before we start, for those people who are too lazy to read I made a very short version at the end. Just scroll all the way to the end for it.

All right let's get straight to it !

A late bloomer like me got into this show when the show was at its peak when the show had already had 3 seasons, and I started the manga and the anime at the same time and I was amazed. I thought there wasn’t even going to be a show that stands up against the like of Naruto but this show proved its worth and stole the hearts of teenagers of this era. From people calling it the future of the shounen genre and the bringer of the succeeding age group, “Boku No Hero Academia” or most commonly known as “My Hero Academia”. Written and read more

It's just a big 25 episodes long filler

Story: Almost nothing happens here. First half of the season is just a sparring session to remind you that some characters actually exist. In the second hald we are getting some backstories and rushed way of expandance of the "bad guys" group.

Art: Nothing speacial. Even worse than previous seasons.

Sound: It's fine.

Character: "Good" characters are trying to kind of improve and learn new techniques but there is nothing interesting tbh. There is only one mildly interesting improvement from MC.
Main "bad guy" will become overpowered towards the end of the season without any actual reason.

Enjoyment: This anime is getting read more

Since i see a lot of comments and rewievs about this show being childish and getting boring and stuff i just want to adress something in my review of SEASON 5.

Almost all the shonen shows you like don't go where My Hero Academia goes to: INTRODUCING EVERY CHARACTER AND SHOWING THEM GROW BOTH IN MIND AND BODY!

This arc of the 5th season may be NOT AS ENTARTAINING AS some very high stakes arcs BUT it's essential to the STORY OF MY HERO ACADEMIA! It's showing how all the characters are improving their line of thinking and how they are honing their skills. The writer of read more

As a big fan of bnha manga I'm just disappointed. The artstyle in the manga is always progressing and is accurate to the things that are happening in the story, it's not longer so cutesy like before. The anime artstyle is still stuck in the mood of season 1, the colors are too bright, everything seem so weird, I can't feel anything when sad or important things are happening, it just seems like a caricature. Or maybe I FEEL smth but then it's cringe. If they animate the now latest chapters in this style I think I might just die of laughter. Please don't.

Class A vs Class IdontcareB should have been skipped. Doesn't do anything to move the plot forward, the entire thing seems like a filler arc. As a Boku no hero fan who only watches the anime I'm very disappointed because this feels pretty much like a wasted season and I'll have to wait a lot for the next one.

They have gone through much better training arcs in past seasons, not everything has to be high stakes but going with no stakes for an entire arc is just mind-boggling to me.

And as a wise man once said: If you don't like my opinion about this show, read more

*Writing after seeing up to episode 11 of the 5th season*

I've seen a lot of people debate over this season. I started watching My Hero when it was about halfway through the second season. I've been following it as much as I could since then; I love it. From what I've read, a lot of people are torn on this season. Some say it's boring and bad, and others say it's far from the worst arc of the series. I believe that this season does what MHA does best, and that is character development. This arc shows so many characters and how hard they've worked read more

I originally intended this season to be my "test season" of whether or not I would finally gather the courage to drop My Hero Academia, and I couldn't even make it 7 episodes before finally recognizing that this show was always going to be a burden to watch and if I hadn't found joy in it since Season 3 then there was no way that it was going to improve for me. I finally feel free after all these years.

I never understood the hype of My Hero Academia. I thought the first two seasons were standard, and the third I got a little more interested read more

I am here to give a patient review on the latest season of MHA. In my opinion, verdicts need to be kept until a season's completion, so let this be a 10-episode-in update that lets you know that, dammit, they've done it again. Just as you think the plot is cooling and taking a slower pace on as the anime matures, they hit you with some ridiculously hype episode that puts a whole new layer over this anime. This latest episode was groundbreaking. If anything, watch the first 9 episodes just so that you can enjoy the pure bliss that follows.

Sure, we could argue that read more

As of right now MHA is at its peak of dryness. I binged the first 4 seasons before season 5 started so I could enjoy the hype, but I was very disappointed. Other than introducing us to characters we've known for 4 seasons; the season started of strong with the first 2 episodes...then it was all downhill after that. There's still 19 episodes to go so I'm hoping that it gets better because I had high expectations and I've heard a lot of good things about the manga. But to be honest I expect this season to be a 7 at best.

MHA always has, and always will be, mid (at best). As a show that plays its cards incredibly safe and doesn’t try to subvert anything in the shounen genre, it’s pretty clear what MHA hopes to achieve in its lifetime (that’s selling movies if you haven’t realized already). But this season just goes to show that when you aim for mediocrity, you end up with subpar results. Drill that lesson into your hearts kids: aim for the moon so you can land amongst the stars, don’t be like MHA and aim for the stratosphere and end up 2m from where you started.

The 5th season of MHA is quite possibly the biggest waste of time I've ever had to endure as an anime fan, and I watched all of the 2nd season of Promised Neverland. I made this account just to review this awful season, I have truly had enough of this shit but I know that I'll somehow be sucked back into watching every new episode despite the fact this show has nothing going for it. It's terrible what this anime has done to me, even though I know it's a waste of time and that everything I've seen so far in this show doesn't take read more

Four season and five years ago, studio Bones brought forth on this world a new anime, My Hero Academia, conceived with good animation, fun fights, and an enjoyable premise. Unfortunately, the intrigue has worn thin with the arrival of MHA season 5.

For my reviews, I will dissect my opinion into 5 crucial sections, henceforth known as napkins.

Story (2/10)
Sadly, the internet has made the story and first third of the season not necessary. The training arc beginning the season and running nearly 10 episodes can best be described by the word pointless. We will see where the season goes from here, read more
