Meh worst episode so far imo. Always hated shounen romance and it seems it's starting to sneak in now in BnHA.
Can't wait for the All Might fight, seems like that's another episode away, though. I was told these last few episodes were going to be incredible so I'm feeling slightly underwhelmed lol.

Some good action and a bit of character development for the guys with less time in the light...but it was overall a fairly lack luster episode for the very high bar they have set in this anime...not saying it was a bad episode just that it was missing that extra something this anime always seems to deliver

In any case I'm looking forward to the next set of battles! I'm really interested to see how the principal fights

PLUS ULTRA!!!

Kind of disappointing Aizawa went soft at the end but understandable, wanted Momo to get her confidence back with him being pushed to his limits but if she took another lost she would probably fall even deeper into despair. Her plan was solid just needed better execution. Hopefully she stop second guessing herself now.

Like how dense/goofy Todoroki can be at times though, really adds to his character. Him reacting to Momo making those creations from her chest was funny.

If Asui wasn't great already she definitely got even more points this episode. Good support character. She is an incredible partner being the main X factor for Tokoyami and even Deku back in Season 1 vs. the water villains.

While notable character development all around, glad they're not dragging these episodes out. Just mainly waiting for the real event, Bakugou and Deku vs. All Might, that shit is gonna be epic.

Another good episode. Loved the Tokoyami and Asui combo and finally Yaoyorozu is on her way to gaining back her confidence. It was a long time coming.

Great episode.

I'm glad they gave Momo some spotlight, since she deserved it considering her lackluster role in the tournament. It was also pretty sweet of Aizawa's part holding down a bit to recover her confidence in herself.
I loved how Todoroki reacted to Momo creating those ropes xD

It seems next episode will deal with the battle of the rest of the class, so the battle with All Might will mostly be the episode after that.

It's weird because the Stain arc was the one I was looking forward to most this season of MHA, but I think this arc is my favorite so far.
Not only are the match-ups great, but they're addressing all the groundwork laid out for characters earlier in the series. Momo's self-esteem issues have always been there in the background, but it's only now she's backed into a corner that we get to see her work to change it.
No wonder Aizawa let them win- they really deserved it.

Also love the fact that Asui doesn't have any big weaknesses that need addressing ;)
She plays the support role really well and seems to have a natural knack for bringing to best out in whoever she's working with.

Ending with Aoyama and Ochaco was hilarious. His VA does an insanely good job! I actually thought it was Namikawa until I searched up on it, but it's a Kuwano Kousuke- who's only been in MHA and Cheer Danshi. Hope he gets more roles in the near future!! *o*

Kind of sad that only the Kirishima/Sato team lost. Hopefully they aren't the only ones who fail the practical :/

Wow, where to start with this one. It was great obviously. Its fun learning what superheroes can do but its even more interesting what they do when it comes to their short comings.
Some unique Quirk Team ups happened that I did not see coming like Tenya's Engine Tail spin thing (I declare that Tail Spin is that moves name now despite what the author says.), Momo's flash grenade and capture surprise and Froppy's disgusting but somehow incredibly endearing throw-up power.

All great stuff with some nice character resolution and development thrown in.

I'm curious how the Black Hole Quirk will be dealt with. Based on observations of the Quirks involved it should be pretty easy for Uravity to just turn off the Gravity and render 13 mostly useless. Though then the wind would still be sucking her towards 13 so maybe she'd need too... make the Black Hole have no gravity!
That is my theory! As well as my argument for why Physics only make super power's more fun.

Personally wasn't too convinced with Momo's character development, she literally changed from having the mindset of a "15 yo" to whatever age she is now in an instant. Despite that battle being the cornerstone of the episode, the plot was particularly weak, mainly due to pacing which is disappointing.

It's quite evident that they had issues squeezing an entire class of side characters within these 4 episodes whilst leaving the 25th for an epic showdown. Instead of just "going with it," that filler post-internship episode should have been left as an OVA.

Tsuyu did a great job, glad that they won.
That challenge seemed too easy for Iida.
Oh boy... who could guess that Momo was the one that would create the best plan, even though that it was kinda obvious from the episode name xD Still great plan! Hope that this will help her to recover.
Kinda unexpected ending xD Aoyama finally was useful hahaha hope Can't wait to see Ururaka's face :D
Next episodes will be epic!

Really? Their fight was the 4th, its not like they didnt have plenty of time to discuss strategy before the start. And its not like they dont get along to avoid talking to eachother.
Shitty needless drama...
Not that I didnt like the episode, but seriously this bugged me to no end :/

This is a problem, in the manga all the fights happen at the same time so they dont have time to strategize. In the other hand, this format would be a mess in the anime, Bones put an order to the fights to make them easier to understand and to accomodate the climax on the second to last episode.

Worst episode of the season, sadly. Yaoyorozu was just so annoying I had to skip most of their fight cause I couldn't stand her thinking, talking and making of faces.

Momo and Todoroki worked well together. That ship is basically set.

Please no Ochako and Deku...please no. Like the ending was funny but please GOD NO. That's just generic.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of the other characters and their fights next week. I guess it will be Mineta heavy but I'm looking forward to seeing Kouda and Jirou team up. There's not much about Kouda we know so it will be cool to see some development from him.

Also PLEASE SHOW HAKAGURE'S FIGHT!!!!

We also seem to forgeting something very important about this episode.

BLESS THAT FROG ASS!!!!

I loved how they have screen time to the characters get and the development.
Momo... yes... It's great to see her with her confidence back. I wonder what they'll do with her more into the show.

Tsuyu and Tokoyomi team did awesome, they both did an equally great job. This episode was basically focused on Yaoyorozu and Todoroki, it seems that she got her confidence back after this match!

Next episode with Midnight, she looked so hot in the PV!!!

uraraka has an obvious advantage with her zero gravity querk against thirteen. should cancel his power out completely actually. i wonder if they will fuck that up, probably not.

I love how complex the characters in this anime can be. For exemple, Yaoyorozu have self-confidence problems and Todoroki have issues with his father...
Speaking on him, I'm taking liking for him each episode I watch. He can be pretty nice and friendly at times, and, despite his smartness, he's also a little naive too! Heh.

Anyway, I just love how Yaoyorozu started to believe more in herself. This remember the problems I have with my iinsecurity.

AND THE LAST SCENE JUST GOT ME, AHAHAHAHAHA!

I really liked this episode. Tokoyami and Tsuyu work really well together and the whole battle scene was enjoyable. I also liked watching Momo and Todoroki vs Eraser Head. Nice to see Todoroki realize that he should have talked things over with Momo and Momo gaining more confidence in herself. Excited to see Uraraka and Aoyama fight together! The preview was funny

This should be called the Ship hype Train episode! I loved all the fights:
Asui and Tokoyami had amazing teamwork, it was simply great
Tenya and Ojiro: how the heck didn't Ojiro get dizzy while rotating at that speed?!

Momo x Todoroki: best ship ever please let this be canon (insert other fanboy sentences here)

Well if you look back on season 1 during the matches in the building, she showcased she was extremely intelligent to the point she was overwhelming All Might with her knowledge, so its not like it came out of left field. Plus being a student who got into the academy through recommendations alone speaks volumes.
