THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This test is actually pretty awesome now that I've really gotten into it. They even give the other minor characters some chance to shine inclduing Fumikage.

Also glad to see Momo and Todoroki working together.

Eraser Head really is awesome. (one of my favorite teachers in this show). The way he anticipates Todoroki's move is almost flawless. Momo showed a lot of personality this episode including insecurity about what to do. I like how Todoroki was able to restore confidence back to her.

As the episode title implies this week we're focusing most prominently on Momo Yaoyorozu and her struggle with Todoroki against Aizawa-sensei. First however we've got the conclusion of Tsuyu and Tokoyami vs. Ectoplasm. And I'm happy to say they showed some nice teamwork. Tsuyu's tongue especially. :D And managed to pass! Though dark shadow certainly helped...stretchy powers for the win! :D Young Iida was also successful in working together with Ojiro. And then onto our main focus: Momo's breakout party. It was pretty ingenious of Aizawa to pair her, timid as she was, with the assertive Todoroki. And she certainly made the most of her chance to shine. Managing to overcome her lack of confidence in order to triumph. Showing excellent planning skills and use of her quirk under pressure. Not to mention....those assets! :D

Well done girl! Nice as it was however I'm almost tempted to say that end with Aoyama and Uraraka facing Thirteen stole the show. As he suspects she...likes Deku? Oh how it must be so! Deku x Uraraka 4 ever!!! :D :D :D :D :D

yes yes , bakugou is a sugoi-dessu character. Can't wait to see 'that arc' , but I'd guess that will be in another season.
yaoyorozu and tadoroki feels unusually romantic in this episode... i hope its not canon though

and todoroki-shounen too. 3 more episodes before yet another long wait :(

Tokoyami and Asui were cool fighting together. Ectoplasm is actually pretty op with his quirk.

Loved how Iida sent Ojiro flying with his quirk.

Todoroki and Momo ship sets sail in this episode! She really doesn't look 15 lol

Based Aoyama with the cliffhanger ending.

Todoroki is more dense than I realised...

Awesome episode. Asui & Tokoyami make a great team. Asui is great at support.
Dark Shadow is the best.

Todoroki & Yaoyorozu vs Aizawa was great. Glad she got her confidence back. That was a great plan.

Looking forward to the rest of the matches.

Good episode.

Asui and Tokoyami worked well together. Momo shined in this episode and it looks like she managed to get her confidence back. Aizawa is a softie.

That ending with Aoyama. He realised that Uraraka likes Deku.

It took a while but I think I'm finally starting to like Todoroki as a character.

That was a fantastic episode, loved it.

Tokoyami/Asui had great teamwork which helped them to pass the test. Really Asui won the test for them because she doesn't really have a noticeable weakness and helped Tokoyami through his weakness.

Iida/Ojiro was surprisingly awesome in that one minute or so we saw, very spectacular move they pulled, it looked great!

Yaoyorozu struggling with herself was sad to see, really lost her confidence all along. All she needed was someone giving her support, Aizawa told Todoroki to get a clue basically and he did!

And the plan was supreme, even though Yaoyorozu made a mistake, the plan was still good enough for Aizawa to back off, shows how good of a hero she can be.

Aoyama asked the question OH SHIT XD

It was great to see Yaoyorozu gain more confidence in her abilities, and she even came up with a smart plan to help her and Todoroki pass the test. She's clearly more than capable of being a good hero, she just needs to keep her confidence high.

Tokoyami and Asui also got some time to shine against Ectoplasm (I swear that guy looks exactly like a villain lol), and we got a little bit of action from Iida and Ojiro as well.

That post-credit scene though, not only does Aoyama come through with his weird comedy, but he drops a bomb on Uraraka out of nowhere, asking if she likes Deku lol. You can't just do that bro.

Overall, I really like what they're doing with the adaptation of this arc, showing each individual student vs. teacher test instead of having all of them happen simultaneously and only focusing on the ones that matter. Even if we only get to see the last part, like with Iida's, it's nice to see other characters get the spotlight for a bit. Looking forward to seeing the other students next episode.

I don't ship them or anything but they made really good team. Todoroki needs to listen to his teammates more, gladly he is understanding person so in the end he did the right thing. I love me some teamwork <3

Can we talk about yaomomo? How perfect she is? How adorable was those Matryoshka dolls? She is doing her best. When she gets more confidence over her quick..... can't wait for those days. I love her <3

So the question is... How can "after Karaoke", Ectoplasm can produce more clone than he usually does at once?
Definitely epic. Aizawa with his Shinobi-style. The Agility, the weapon. Then MomoYao have regain her confident and thanks to that she can speak up her plan to Todoroki and pass the test.

This episode was just alright, not as good as the rest of the season in my opinion. There was too much exposition of what was happening.

Still really enjoy this show, however.

Great teamwork from all of the teams in this episode. =)

Asui and Tokoyami make an excellent pair as they had a tough challenge against Ectoplasm. Thanks to her quick thinking with the cuffs, Tokoyami used Dark Shadow effectively and caught Ectoplasm with the cuffs. Nicely done. =)

Same goes for Iida and Ojiro as well, where they couldn't win, but used their strategy to get Ojiro through the escape gate successfully.

Todoroki and Momo was my favourite though. Momo was having confidence issues, but thanks to Todoroki's kind understanding approach, Momo and Todoroki made up a plan where she replicated Aizawa's bandages, in a way that made me laugh as Todoroki looked at Momo while she was creating the bandages with her chest wide open.

Still, despite Momo missing the catapult handle on her first attempt, the second attempt worked with flinging the bandages into the air and using Todorki's heat to heat it up and they successfully caught Aizawa. She started to tear up out of joy, but Todoroki showed his dense side of him and thought she was sick. XD

The most surprising moment was Uraraka And Aoyama's scene, where they were struggling against Thirteen. Aoyama can't catch a break, the poor sod, but he has a keen eye about romance though. He correctly guessed that Uraraka was thinking about Midoriya during the test and asked if she "liked" him. Now I imagine Uraraka blushing around Midoriya while recalling Aoyama's words from now on! =D

Glorious episode, just as I expected. :D

Tsuyu and Tokoyami with some great teamwork to get through ectoplasm, that was really cool to watch. Loved how Tsuyu played the support role to help Tokoyami who's more powerful with a slight weakness.

Iida and Ojiro with the flying combination kick was epic. xD

Momo and Todoroki against Aizawa was definitely the main focus of the episode and it was glorious. Loved how Aizawa implicitly told Todoroki to understand that Momo wanted to say something and the follow up with both of them executing Momo's plan was great.
That reveal that Todoroki was the 2nd vote for Momo during the election. :)
Momo tearing up after successfully passing made me pretty emotional. She deserves a pat on the back. <3

Aoyama asking the real questions. XDD

Looking forward to the next set of exams.

Good episode, the Tokoyami/Asui and Iida/Ojiro combinations were odd but fun. My favorite part of the episode was the Todoroki/Yaoyorozu vs Aizawa exam, the anime's fleshing out of Yaoyorozu's shortcomings really made the comeback and teamwork at the end of the episode all the more fun to watch. The interactions were on point this episode, Todoroki is so dense...

How shrewd they cut off the episode right before Uraraka responded Aoyama's questions, next week can't come soon enough.

I'm really liking the format they're using in the anime. In the manga, the matches all happened at the same time, but in here, they're doing it one-by-one. Tsuyu and Tokoyami were pretty good and their quirks are compatible with one another. Iida and Ojiro were great though and Iida's technique was awesome to watch. Todoroki and Yaoyorozu were great and Yaoyorozu finally got her confidence back. Todoroki being so dense is hilarious though. Also, Uraraka and Aoyama was hilarious lol. I don't think I've ever seen Uraraka be this irritated with someone. Too bad they didn't show the rest of the fight though... which they could have because there was like 20 seconds left :/

Next episode will probably the remaining four teams and will start Midoriya and Bakugou vs. All Might, though we won't see the entirety of that fight until episode 24.

5/5

Momo is great, it was at this point in the manga where she became one of my favourite characters. Her insecurities aren't the biggest but thats why her issues are extremely relatable, at least for me

My baby Tsuyu slaying and passed the exam with Tokoyami. Gaaah. So proud of them two. But seriously I've never Tsuyu panicking. She's always calm and she's always smiling. Hihi. And did she just swallow that handcuffs? Holy shit! Hahaha. Love my baby so much! <3

Ojiro on Iida's back. Hahaha. I'm dyiiiing. They passed the exam, too. Yaaay! :D

Fuck. Momo and Todoroki really look so good together. I FUCKING SHIP IT. WAAAAH! <3 Glad Momo finally regained her confidence, and Todoroki believes in you, babe. Kyaaaaaaaa! I SHIP IT! I FUCKING SHIP IT!

I'm really so proud of everyone this episode. Can't wait for the rest of Class A babies.

Holy shit. Uraraka, stop lying to yourself, we know you like Deku. Hihihihihi. My Deku x Uraraka ship is gonna sail soon. Waaaaaah!

Love love love this episode so much! <3 Ganbatte, minna! :)

Such a great display of teamwork in this episode.

Asui and Tokoyami together were already nice. Todoroki and Yaoyorozu stole the show, tho, especially Momo. I could really relate with her struggle since I've also have this kind of problem too at times.

The fight was pretty epic and it had some great character development.

YEAH! two best girls in one episode! tho girls in Bnha are all best girls! haha!

Nice teamwork from tsuyu and tokoyami! 2 animal like quirks working together, a bit weird partnership but they did a really good job! tsuyu becoming the support and dark shadow doing his thing!

I just love Aizawa as a teacher! he's looking out for his students wholeheartedly, I love his concern about Momo lacking confidence and comparing herself to Todoroki, and the way he directly pointed out that Todo should have considered for Momo's plans as well. He really wanted to help her out but that's not the job he must do in this activity however at the end of it all He's just a big softie. :) Def one of the best teachers in UA.

Am proud of Momo for gaining her confidence! matryoshka dolls popping out of her body was so adorable!

post credit scene Aoyama dropping the deku bomb at Ochako! Nicely done Aoyama! HAHA!
next episode the remaining fights but mostly highlights Mineta and sero vs Midnight!

So, Momo chan is back to being confident.

Aizawa sensei is pretty awesome to be honest. Froppy-chan is really strong and intelligent now that I think about it.

Next episode we'll get a lot of other fights but I am guessing they'll save Izuku and bakugo vs All Might for the last 2 episodes.

Ectoplasm is pretty cool. Tokoyami and Asui did really well defeating him. Loved how Ojiro was sent flying with Iida's quirk. Momo shined brightly in this episode. I'm glad she got back her confidence. Todoroki didn't give her time to say her plan. She came up with a great plan to beat Aizawa. He's such a softie. Aoyama dropping that bomb on Uraraka was funny.

This episode was awesome. Todoroki and Yaoyorozu are my favorite characters in MHA. They both have serious potential. Also, Fumikage and Asui did pretty good. Fumikage is awesome too. Anyways, can't wait for the next episode. Also I don't really ship characters in anime but.......

ShoutoXMomo lets hope it happen
