THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Cool, we got to see the pro heroes with their rankings/titles. First half of the episode showed Deku recovering and the heroes trying to unite together to save Bakugo. Thought it was an emotional buildup especially with the segment involving Iida.

In the meantime, we got Bakugo being held captive by the villains. At least they got the tracking device Momo planted on them. Deku feels guilty for not being able to save him so now it's their chance.

Lol, the heroes got into some pretty wacky outfits imo XD

Episode 46 this week, "From Iida to Midoriya," adapting Chapters 84 and 85 from Volume 10 of the original source manga. Bakugo has been kidnapped by the league of villains, and All Might is on the case, along with many of the other top heroes. Not that everyone from 1-A is willing to leave it all to them however! Yes, it's time for the students to pick a side and take a stand, with Young Iida all too familiar with acting recklessly. And things certainly got tense with that little physical altercation. Ultimately though it's just like back when Deku helped Bakugo against that villain way back at the beginning of the series where his legs moved on their own. And so, a compromise! Iida, Midoriya, Todoroki, Kirishima and Yaoyorozu go to find Bakugo together, ostensibly to "observe" though I hafta agree with Momo regarding that. Pretty nice disguises they've got on too, Momo lookin' extraordinarily sexy. XD But things are certainly still very serious, with UA taking a media wave, but if Shigaraki thought dealing with Bakugo would be easy, he's got another thing coming. XD

Pretty annoying how some of the students wanted to go rescue, this is the only moment so far when I think they should just leave it to the pros. Bakugo tho, knocked that hand off and triggered some PTSD. Hyped for next episode like always.

Everyone in the hospital talking about the plan. They knew it was risky, but in the nd they are heroes.

I liked the way they explained Deku's injury, he needs to be more careful when using the quirk. Deku and the others are ready to infiltrate the hideout. On the other side it was nice to see some of the top heroes coming together, this mission is realy dangerous.

The episode despise being a build-up had some thrilling moments with Bakugo and the villains. Kacchan wasn't taken by their words, and attacked them instantl, he have proud after all, well done. Also those outfits were so damn hilarious, especially Yakuza Midoriya LOL.

Welp, Midoriya's arms are in a very bad shape. Yaoyorozu, Kirishima, Iida, Todoroki and Deku went on their own to rescue Bakugo without a fight. Meanwhile, some of the top heroes are assembled for an attack at the League of Villains' hideout and rescue Bakugo while U.A. as a school starts becoming infamous. Lol'd at those outfits.

This arc is starting to become easily the best one in this season. The emotional aspect has really risen with this episode. What is also great, is how we can acknowledge that both groups are kind of right (lida and todoroki). It's true that they should just leave it to the heroes but i can understand their decision when the pro heroes still haven't acted on the situation, that's why the classmates want to act as fast as possible.

Also I'm loving the centric on Bakugo and I wish we get an amazing arc with his character, something similar to zuko from avatar. But then again i've heard some negativity surrounding his character arc in the manga so I hope it's not true and wr get some proper amazing character development with him cause his character deserve it.

Anyway that was an amazing emotional episode and i haven't been this excited about the next one since the stain's arc.

Very good episode. I liked how they were building the emotions of some of the U.A. students and really made their motives to save Bakugo pretty realistic.

Some comedic moments were a bit cringe but the main moments were sold well.

Excited to see what happens now.

Bakugo’s character arc in the manga is beautiful and probably one of the best . I haven’t heard anything negative about it but I’d imagine it’s the minority who’s fixated on who he was in chapter 1 and thinks people can’t grow or change .

I'm worrying about Midoriya's arms. Like seriously, if he fights again, won't be the same thing? Cuz he's against top villains, eventually he will fight and if he wants to win he have to do same thing. I hope they will just rescue Bokugo and go away.

Too bad someone spoiled me the outcome of this last week so the twists and turns dont really matter to me.

Love Iida as a character. He cares about his friends so much, he really feels responsible for them as a class leader.

Midoriya's arms are fuucked up its getting worse and worse. Not looking too good for him.

Character developpement at its finest. Great adaptation of Deku and Iida's conflict.

But unfortunatly, Bakugo's moment felt way more impactful in the manga. I was expecting they'd choose the exact same angle and perhaps a bigger focus on his smiling face, and with it an energic song (I always thought it'd be Bombing King) so it would truly feel like a decisive moment in his developpment. HOWEVER, this explosion was really well animated.

It's with that episode that you realize how great the characters are, their trauma have real impact on the way they see the situation and on their relationship.

Great episode as always.

Deku's injuries this time are serious. :(

I've always liked the way they handled Iida conflict with Deku and Todoroki about saving Bakugou. It's interesting because these two were the ones who pulled Iida out of the very same reckless actions he was trying to take in the past and now they're trying to do the exact same thing he did. The scene outside the hospital was pretty emotional. Glad to see that both Iida and Momo are accompanying them cause without those two the other 3 would probably just be totally reckless.

Those costumes were hilarious, I'd bet the kids stand out more in the costumes. Deku with the delinquent outfit is hilarious but Momo in her dress is lovely. <3
Loved the moment when Momo tried to explain why they had to go into the store to get this stuff, she just want to experience going to the cosplay store for the first time. <3

Bakugou at the end was awesome, people might often call him out on being susceptible to becoming a villain but the truth has always been that there's no one as driven on becoming a hero as Bakugou.

All the pro heroes are getting ready for one huge operation, the next few episodes are gonna be so awesome. I can't wait to see how Bones handles this.

Gah dammit, this episode has me torn between whether the villains cause is justified or they're just bad guys doing bad things.

On the other side of things, the issues midoriya is facing is so relatable; going all in with what you love -only for it to damage you. It's to the extent where the mothers central to the issue want you to leave it... I'm suffering from the repercussions of that situation even now.

I like how they combined a good chunk of comic relief between the two climaxes; it really helped to pump me up for what is to come... Especially the way yaoyoruzu just wanted to cosplay

So who said Bakugo will be like Sasuke? XD

Deku and Bakugo were inspired by same person, All Might. Deku want to always can save people and smile after that like All Might, Bakugou want to always win no matter the condition like All Might too.

If A lot of top heroes gather in this arc, i can see this arc will be amazing, especially when Top 10 like All Might, Endeavour, Best Jeanist come to raid league of villain's hideout.

I think he will fight but he must just use his 5% One For All like when he fought Hero Killer Stain

So if Midoriya gets injured again, that's it, he won't be able to use his arms anymore? This looks bad

Still think it's the worst idea possible for them to go by themselves. Either way, the next episodes are gonna be great

Yea i hope. But not always he'll be at advantage like he fought Stain with 2 other person. At the worst scenario everyone'll fight one-on-one. And that's why i think it's possible that Midoriya could use that technique again, also he's already pretty damaged.

Well damn, this episode really is talking emotions and building up so much suspense. There were a lot of focus here. Some of the students were hurt by Bakugo's kidnapping and wanted to save him while others are more worried and believes that the pro heroes should just do all the work. But it's obvious that everyone's frustrated in one way or another with the repercussions. In the end, a few agreed to go along with the plan of a covert mission and I think that's the best choice.

Now as time have gone by, it's clear how this event is affecting society's trust towards heroes. It's a big blow to UA and the trust is slowly wavering unless they pick themselves back up again. So this huge rescue plan that is ongoing should hopefully regain back the lost trust. The villains are questioning what heroes truly are in society and they want to bring out the weakness within the system. I think they wanted to let everyone know that it's a fragile justice that could easily break when a strong force hinders them. Especially when such a system is a dependent protective source for normal people of everyday life, also known as society. Once something unwanted happens, a domino effect could start and the whole society will become a mess. Who knows? It might lead to something even bigger. Kinda links back to Kota's own view of heroes as he's kind of a civilian himself (a kid) and with the death of his parents, didn't appreciate how people praised them for their heroic deaths.

Well, all that said, Bakugo seems to not be absorbed by the League of Villain's own motive which is great. He wants to be a winner and wants to be a hero, no denying that. There's a serious consequence with Deku's injuries, a concept that I like in a battle Shonen. Hopefully, he'll keep that in mind while still being able to fight and protect as a hero. We all want to see him achieving his childhood dream and being essentially paralyzed is going to be a huge blow to him. The comedy relief was also a nice breather to get a bit of laughs. Really made me love the characters even more.

This episode also had one of the more exciting buildups with its soundtracks. The heroes are gathering around, and they'll come knocking on the villain's door with no intention to back away.

All the top heroes have come together, and after an emotional exchange in front of the hospital, we have our Bakugo rescue group taking action as well. Lol those disguises were great, I feel like they stand out more with them than without them.

This was a good buildup episode, now it's time to jump into the hype part of the arc.

Seeing all the top heroes was really cool, though I wonder who rank #3 is? This upcoming arc is gonna be great but I wonder how the students are going to do this without fighting. Bakugou seems to changing for the better so far, I've been liking his character this season.

For now, from the villain that already appeared in this arc, it seems Deku won't face villains that has brute force like muscular, except if they face another Nomu, All for One (That is new episode title) of course All Might himself will face him.

That upgraded Nobu thing seems really powerful tho, and i was thinking him to face with Midoriya. But we don't know yet if there's another villain.

The first arc of this season was enjoyable but it was nothing extraordinary for me, i didn't feel bored but wasn't enticed to watch the next episode either. Now this episode was really good, it felt like a big turnaround. Idk if it was because of the music or the choices and emotional moments that were carried out but it felt intense and interesting, unlike the previous episode i wasn't always looking at the episode time and wandering what would be the cliffhanger this time, 5/5. (i didn't explain myself very well ik). favourite part : the music on the train scene reminded me of battlefield 4 sound tack and got me hyped
