If it was an OVA or a special I would have enjoyed it. But I definitely didn't like the first episode of the season being a filler

Yap after soo many eps of My Hero Academia, we need to refresh our mind haha. You can say it's a recap eps, but it's also a meaningful eps. New symbol, new hope, it's Deku time!!!

I'm guessing they always want to do a recap on the first episode for nostalgia sake and filler it for fun but I feel like it's a waste of an episode. Still, this episode was interesting. I feel it was forced in many ways, the beauty of One for All is that not many know about it and how All Might is training a successor, only a select few know and some rando ugly as fuck, ikemen-wannabe comes in with his knowledge to encourage Midoriya. His quirk is awesome but I don't know why Mina thinks this guy looks handsome, he looks like a perv.

I am liking both OP and ED. The ED contains lots of
and I am fine with that.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

IT'S BACK AND I'M SO FUCKING HAPPY! This was a really cute and smooth way of recapping the story so far!

I say it all the time, but Horikoshi Sensei is truly a genius with his creation of a perfect shounen anime complete with fantastic characters and thrilling plot!

I thought the Op was meh but the Ed is FIRE!

I guess it's fine for the first episode being a recap. It's nice to have somewhat of a refresher I guess.

Not a big fan for the OP but dang I do love the ending though.

For those that didn't watch the episode don't fucking vote. I mean it wasn't a filler episode entirely, it did it in a smart way. It was great and really set up the following episodes to come. I was very happy with this episode.

Why can't you do the recap on an OVA? You just stole an episode from what will probably be a very packed season in terms of adapting the manga. Also, it seems this is passing before the 63th episode, so they'll shows some repeated stuff maybe? And how the fuck is this rated 8+ on myanimelist? Nothing special happened and it's highly rated '-'. Guess fanboys really are easy. Anyways, the art is looking pretty nice.

Hmmm... BNHA sure recap about the class 1 quirks...

A nice little recap episode with the freelance reporter finding All Might's successor. The OP was okay, but I like the ED better.

Most people rate the season before it’s even out. And I think they should just do a special to recap people but I think it’s mandated by the tv network at this point. But kind of pointless when most these characters aren’t even going to be around at all this season.

The reporter is canon?


No. Though I wonder if Bones would actually remember to bring him back later on that promise.

I am quite disappointed that this was a filler, but it had to be done to work as a recap. Is it just me that feels like the animation looked a bit sluggish at some points? I hope its just because its a filler so they decided to not put as much effort into it.

Well, I didn't mind a filler and it was a nice recap overall though I would still prefer they did an episode 0 over this instead. Next week it's going to be pretty intense with the Shigaraki-Overhaul meeting.

Glad to see this back.

The recap was alright, don't have much to say since we've seen it all before.

The OP and ED are quite nice.

I don't mind that this is a filler episode, since this series doesn't have an abundance of those type of episodes like a lot of other shounen anime. I'm really excited for this upcoming arc! Seeing the story adapted from manga to anime is always such a treat! This is going to be a great season.

That was honestly amazing for being a filler! They gave a filler character so much personality, things that most studios and writers can't do in 20 minutes.

The opening was great, but it's because I've been playing it nonstop since a few weeks back. The ending tho............. IT'S ADORABLE

Actually a good filler/re-introduction episode. It was wel done with someone who views the students from the outside. Did not mind it at all.

Though there are a lot of salty comments here already, why though..


That's unfortunatly the curse of popular series, and the fact that the episode was filler only gives them more opportunity to slander.

The OP was okay at best. It had a nice song, I just don't think the right visuals were used for it.

The episode being a recap was a nice refresh since I binged s1-s3 so Incase my stupidass forgot anything these episodes are perfect. I didn't like the news reporter at first but then he turned out to be alright.

4/5

The episode was cute! Not much happened but I enjoyed it nevertheless.

I like the Ending song more than the Opening. Still, I'm waiting for BNHA to have a real epic theme :o

Great filler recap, I didn't feel like a recap episode it bringing me to enjoy the series I love it.

It was pretty good for a recap. The add enough new stuff to make it worth watching. The free lance turned out to be nicer than expected.

Whom is this recap episode actually for?
Fans of the series are intimately familiar with the characters and story to date.
Casual viewers wouldn't benefit from such a lackadaisical and unstructured sequence of flashbacks.
First time viewers should be watching from season 1, in which case for them there would be no time gap for them to have forgotten anything.

Honestly a tragic use of an episode one, tbh. Knowing how good this upcoming arc is, this seemed like a poor way to start it. A summary could have been built in via the canon and been great, but let's call this episode what it is: filler. Don't know why MHA keeps doing these tbh.

The OP is pretty good imo, has the same vibe of the other OP's from the previous seasons.

It's mostly a recap, so there's nothing much to say about it. I'm really looking forward to this new season. Bring it on!

Not much i can say about this episode. It was RECAP so i am grading it as RECAP. It didn't do a good job of recapping the events of s1 to s3. More NATURAL flash backs needed. OP animation is great but direction/storyboard not so much: cuz of little flow but just throwing characters at you. Song = good. Don't even like Blue Encount. ED was okay. That reporter needs to step away from the child.

ODD FUTURE WAS MHA'S BEST OPENING. PEACE SIGN WAS LAZY JUST LIKE MOST OF THE MAINSTREAM SONGS IN THE WEST. FIGHT ME!

Overall, this was a really well-done recap/filler episode. Every scene with Dad Might is just so cute.

I guess filler for the premiere is gonna be a regular thing......well it was a lighthearted fun episode which I suppose is welcome considering the subject material of the next arc. An arc which I personally wasn't super hyped about like other MHA fans, but it'll be nice to see it animated.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

awesome start to the fourth season! wasn't expecting filler but i really enjoyed it.

OP is a banger (not as good as S3's) and those visuals are amazing. sets a great tone for the season.

ED is just as great (i'm a bit biased as a massive sayuri fan) and though there are some spoilers it's nothing too bad. fits the arc really well.

so damn glad my hero is back! i forgot how much i missed it :)

It feels good to be back. I personally love filler content, and obviously the first episode will always be a filler episode to remind everyone what is going on with the series. Even just seeing few seconds of the ordinary life of U.A. students fills me with joy! The opening is great, I love the animation in it, though I feel like I gotta listen to it few more times to completely warm up to it (like I did with s3 openings). The ending though- I love it!!

Recap episode. Not terrible, but still a recap episode.

Honestly I'm not a big fan of the opening. The visuals are meh, and the poor song was downgraded. I hate how they added an effect to the singer's voice, his voice sounded SO much better without it. This is bothering me.............

OP3 and OP 4 were undoubtedly the best.

I will never understand the need to make a first recap episode when it comes to BNHA??? like why?? If we want to remember the pervious events we would rewatch them, they don't have to ruin the hype, can't they learn how to make a big hit first episode....????

I was wating so long for next season. One of my favourite titles.
Though i feel like rooting for villains in BnH, cause they are in much worse conditions than heroes.

About episode: i wouldn't call this a filler, it has meaning of establishing Midoria as next Symbol of peace.
But listing all heroes abilites is a bit too much anyway.

I hate that opening. The song, the visuals, the character models, that lack of Big Three. Truly. They had over a year man! Over. A. Year!

Honestly I think you're just memeing at this point (especially since you're rating 7DS higher).



OP3 and OP 4 were undoubtedly the best.

One of these seasons you're going to have to get a life.
