Just a recap episode and a boring one at that, opening and ending are bland but I’ll probably end up liking the opening after a few episodes just like any other MHA op. Animation was kinda stiff but still worked. I’ve got a feeling this season will be the same as the third, not being able to compare to previous seasons but still being overly hyped up.

That was a pretty boring episode. I don’t know what to expect from this fourth season but I hope it could be better than the previous two series.

I really dig the new opening, songwise definitely better than the last two imo.

And the episode wasn't too shabby either, in fact pretty well done for a recap.

Hyped that S4 with my favorite arc is finally here.

One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Although it was a recap episode to bring you back into the mood of the anime, I pretty much enjoyed it ♡
I'm not caught up with the manga and I read that the first episode was a new thing, which had nothing to do with the manga, I was glad about the all the Smoll Might moments ♡ Made me sad to see he just git a supporting role this season. But it is understandable why. He will be still my number one hero >w<

I like the Opening song. As I expected though, it's the first episode of this season, so most of the scenes are kinda explanations for the audience who forgot the story. But, I'm sure, the next episode will be great because MHA is never disappointed me!

Btw, I bought the MHA stickers package on Amazon because I wanted to get my favorite hero's sticker. There are 73 stickers, but my hero (Eraserhead) was only one.. I was sad.

Although the recaps at the start of every season are very tiring, and despite this episode being filler, I quite liked it. Good start.
100% agree. Even though this was a filler, I found myself enjoying it. It made me realize how much I miss these characters, and I always love seeing my favs just doing everything things. I don't think we really needed a whole recap student by student of their abilities, however.

For a recap episode, this honestly had a load of heart. Honestly, if it werent for the random clips of past events and telling us who the characters are for the 900th time id not have a hard time believing this were just a normal episode and the reporter guy would return later on.

I'm not going to expect much from this season from all the negative things I've heard from alot of friends of me about this arc or rather that its mostly good but drops the ball in the final stretch and kind of marks the series trending downwards in quality, but I'm at least hoping it will be ok. At least its gonna be lightyears better than a certain other shounen jump series' fourth season that actually trainwrecks.

Yeah, it's a filler and recap episode, but not bad.
The reporter is a cool guy, and man... that quirk! I wasn't expecting that!

I like the OP, except the last part with that horrible "ikeeee"

ED is ok.

As someone who is constantly watching and reading other things it is sometimes difficult for me to remember everything when a new season of a show I do follow comes out. Recaps are a good thing and I don't consider them "filler". I've already forgotten the op and ed other than op is Blue Encount which I tend to like. I'll have to hear/see them more before I make a final judgement but bnha ops almost always become bangers to me. Can I just say camera guy could have done something really awful with a quirk like that? It was nice that he wanted to know All Might successor for personal reasons and not to just throw it in some tabloid magazine to make a buck.


Sounds gay. I'm in!

I f*ucking hate optimism.

When i heard that this episode was a recap, i felt that the studio has done very wrong about choosing this episode to be the recap episode. But the recap episode was necessary as this anime had three seasons before this one.

On the bright side - There's a very low chance of getting another recap episode in this season as the recap episode is already done.

The recap episode wasn't as bad as the recap episodes of other anime. on the other hand, it was really good considering that it was a recap episode. The animation was a bit dull at the starting 2-3 minutes but it got improved at an incredible rate after that.

I don't think that the studious has done something wrong. It were the people's fault to think that the 4th season would start off with a fight. This episode was better than what i expected it to be. I don't know how other people feel about it but the Bones know what they are doing and its not the place of people to say that the anime starts off really bad. There is a reason why Bones is considered to be one of the best studious.

In short, This episode was not as bad as people say it is. and the 4th season is off to a great start.

Not a big fan of the opening
The song is good but the visuals leave me wanting more, generic shots of 1-A who will do fuck all this season, All might running in his outfit (why??) we got the idea they were walking in different directions and moving apart we don’t need an extended running sequence, random shots of fights that will happen which is expected, I would have liked more focus on Overhaul, Kirishima, Mirio and Nighteye instead of Bakugo and All might who in the grand scheme of things won’t do much if anything
I liked the shot of Eri falling in the sky since it symbolised this arc but that was it really

Also why was All Might wearing his golden age outfit, he shouldn’t have been wearing that 18 years ago, he should have been wearing his modern one, that one he wore during his Japanese debut, meaning he wore the one with the cape while in the US, so why switch back to save some guys from a fire him having shared featured before the AFO fight is fine since it’s just a look and a artistic choice but this doesn’t make sense, I know it’s filler but come on

I was not at all pleased with the filler nature of this episode. I felt that the reporter figuring it out so easily and forced makes the fact the rest of the universe hasn't feels so unreasonable. So enough about the filler detracting from the ongoing narrative the OP is a far cry from previously hype BnHA OP's and was very much a letdown. The ED is a bit better but not to the standard that has been set. A pretty forgettable first episode of the 4th season.

Come on guys. This anime is now in its 4th season. Not everyone watches this on Funimation, Crunchyroll, your favorite pirate sites. Some people watches this ON TV IN JAPAN (and elsewhere too, this show also aired before on Toonami right?) and it's probably the only way for them to watch it. Therefore the recap is necessary. And this recap is good, not just a bunch of scenes that we already saw before and just pasted with each other to complete the 23 minutes required. They made an effort to show a story (about the reporter). I think it was done quite well.

If you need a recap then you probably haven't payed attention and should rewatch series instead and if you're new to MHA you should start from S1 not S4 just saying.
But at least OP/ED are nice.

I don't know how to feel about this episode, it mostly consisted of recaps. I didn't even want to watch this at first but here I am now. Let's see what the rest of the season has to offer.

... yes go on and re watch 30+ hours rather then have them have one episode explain everything. Super reasonable request, vs you know you people who know everything could just skip this one episode and start next week.

regardless was far from the worst recap, in fact might be one of the better recaps because its more of a filler. Its just EH, throwaway that you can skip if you know your stuff.

If you need to be reminded of what happened, you were never paying attention to begin with.
And if you so much need to be reminded you don't need recaps because there are wikis with episode summaries.
So either way they are unnecessary and obsolete especially when you consider that people have the internet and are no longer restricted to cable or network television.
Besides you can't condense 30+ hours worth of content in a single episode anyway.

your right, should petition them to make 2~4 episodes recaps!

Not many people are hardcore into the show, there are a lot of casual people who watch it. This is a nice episode to bring people up speed.... you are in the minority being someone who reads up on wikis or re watchers a show.

Iv been reading the manga, not going to lie it did a decent job telling me where they left off so I could remember what has not been said yet.

You've been doomposting since before this season started so this act of yours isn't working. Truth be told this arc is well liked among the fandom the problem is that the people who hate it make up a very loud minority and this has been the thing that's been happening since the series reached mainstream status where you attract people who got caught up by the hype and just read the series in order to prove its not as good as people say.Stop being a tool and make your own opinion.

It would be better if they made recap movies instead for those that need them and kept main series recap free.

So a recap ep huh, probably shouldn't be surprised. And I'm not even mad about it, seems I forgotten most of characters, their names and quirks xD So I will let it slide this time.

I guess I really did miss these freaks, hoping for another enjoyable ride with them :3 Not a fan of new opening, it sounds like Typical-shounen-opening-x, nothing new or particularly fun about it, meh.
Digging the ending though, both song AND the visuals. I'm already intrigued by this new character and her backstory, seems like new arc'll be largely focused on her? We'll see. Looking forward to finding out :3

Cut the crap and just say what you actually mean, you want people to only say good things about the series. I've mentioned not looking foreword to this arc and the stuff past that, like three times including this one and you somehow have taken that to heart for some bizzare fucking reason and think im trying to convince everyone somehow by writing a few hundred words of text over the course of a year.

Go look at how Afloo replied and see how a rational person handles a conversation, cause he sure as fuck has made me look foreword to things more than you sperging out.

Because you've been saying the same shit for months now, if you dont want to watch dont watch its that simple but acting as if your colleagues word ate thr word of the fandom is stupid.

Cut the crap and just say what you actually mean, you want people to only say good things about the series.

Me pointing out that your misgivings are unfounded upon and that you should wait for the season to actually start than listing to people is not asking you to say only good things about it.

I'd be ok with that maybe make it an hour long ova mini movie. Not a bad middle ground and keeps it cheaper.
