THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Camie and that Todoroki transformation is gold lol

Episode is kinda cute with Todoroki and the kids. Classroom humor came back thanks to Yuga. The scenes at night with Deku freaking out was absolutely priceless. Yuga provided that quality comedy this episode :D

I want to see more Camie. She is hilarious.

I'm glad Aoyama and Deku became friends although it came about in a weird way. lol

Also, Endeavor is still low life scum. Nothing he does will change that.

Wow I finally feel paid back after all the ugly cuts of Bakugou I’ve had to witness this season. And the added ikemen effect for him killed me (thank you Sakura-san)

God this episode had the best directing and best storyboarding since s2; actually feels like life was breathed into this anime again and all the shots are creatively flourished from the manga and given extra polish to them. Gosh I love it. Now I’m actually excited for the second half aka one of the best arcs so far LETS GO!

Also also giving extra attention to Shouto and Endeavors relationship was a good touch, it def needed to be strongly stated here for later events.

Katsuki's plan worked with the kids. The guy always steals the spotlight whenever he's on the screen.

Really nice moment with endeavor there but I still can't like that guy. Well he atleast did something dad like for once.

I thought aoyama was gay for midoriya for a second there. It was hilarious for sure.

Well the second half was very bizarre. Looking forward to festival stuff. I stopped reading the manga around that time, not because i didn't like it though.

Ok, that naval laser guy is weird af. Man must not have learned how to socialize properly if he thinks being creepy is how to make friends with someone, lol...

Also most of the episode felt like filler. I'm hoping the next one is better than this. I just want them to hurry up and start the next arc!

This was a better-paced episode than last week. I like that it gave a little spotlight to Endeavor and Shouto relationship, I want to get to the Endeavor arc already.

Aoyama is an angel. I hope he learns to control his quirk.

Even Endeavor is getting character development. Damn.

By the way, these episodes are much more fun to watch than the previous arc. Looking forward to the school festival. Students gotta act like students and leave the villains to the pros sometimes.
Everyone should read Tower of God.

At first I thought Aoyama was stalking Deku, but I'm glad they became friends even though it was kinda weird at first. Next episode is going to be the start of the high school festival arc and I can't wait to see it.

I always love slice of life episodes like this, I hate violence. The kids part is good.

But I'm disappointed by the fact that HeroAca doesn't take gay character seriously. Unlike another recent controversy, I'm 100% sure that this time the writer has an intention to avoid going deep into LGBT theme, maybe he think that this is 'not kind of that genre' but if he read western superheroes comic he'll know that it is a trend right now to face the sexual orientation head on.

Oh! and I'm wondering if Endeavor is single right now, is he divorce with his wife yet? I'd love to date him!

Nice character growth and progress for both Bakugo and Todoroki: former highlighting his ability to inspire in an authentic yet constructive fashion and the latter becoming a tad closer to his father.

Aooyama was being so silly and hilarious during this episode lmao. For a moment there I thought he was crushing on Midoriya or something.

I think he wrote "Il n'est pire eau que l'eau qui dort" it's a saying meaning nothing worse than sleeping water.
I may be wrong french isn't my language.

So they built the kids an amusement park. Yeah that's nice, but the didnt learn anything. And the teacher continues to apologize because she's a useless failure, and I'm pretty sure once they go back to class, they'll hate on her because she doesn't have cool powers like all the cool heroes.Basic nepotism bullshit. Seriously, big waste of time. And the second half was just....gay and creepy. Plus it's pretty stupid to compare quirks in this episode. Seriously. Deku gets broken bones, and the other guy ends up with diarrhea.Btw the security in this show is a big joke. I'm sure all the kids are scheduled to be in their rooms at a specific time while the have cameras watching the entire school.But I guess a guy who gets stomach cramps can breach the shitty security? Go figure. Nothing happened in this episode, the kids learned nothing, Lazer guys a creepy sexual predator, and Eri wakes up after Night Eyes funeral. 10/10

I'm pleased to see how the wrapped up the provisional hero license arc, and the Aoyama stuff... Yikes! As creepy as the manga, and I would liked to see at least one episode of this, not half episode. And yep, up next comes the worst arc of MHA.

I wanna comfort the teacher. She looks so down.

Wait is this all the character developement Endeavour needs to turn "nice" wtf.

Also wtf is this episode with Aoyama.

Next episodes look already boring. Meh.

Nearly all shows become worse over time, seems like BnHA is no exception.

Camie's quirk really made me laugh. Her transformation of Shoto was pure gold! XD

The whole solution that the students came up with to get the better of the bratty kids was pretty fun. Bakugo's words of wisdom was also something that we don't see too often with him, so it's nice to give that kid some advice that he's learnt himself.

As for Endeavour, his approach to his son was a big step forward of him. He's no saint and he'll never be one, but he's put himself on the path of redemption and his smile to shoto was very genuine and nice, too. =)

Aoyama's stalking of Deku was random at first, but he knew that Deku's quirk wasn't perfect for his body, just like Aoyama himself. It's good that both of them are friends now, despite the stalking and cheese eating, know. ^^;

To be rather blunt, that's a rather poor way of thinking. I have no problem with the recent increase of LGBT heroes/characters in movies and games as of late (as long as it doesn't get TOO preachy and actually contributes to the plot of said game or movie rather than be a box-ticking exercise, which has happened a little too often recently), but you really should respect of mangaka's choice of not having an LGBT character in HeroAca.

Just because he hasn't added a character that's gay or lesbian doesn't mean he's against it. That type of assumption and jumping to conclusions isn't going to do well for you with your argument. =/

Not everyone has to follow a trend, so I'm fine with the way things are with HeroAca right now. There're other movies/shows out there that have gay/lesbian characters that you can watch. Just because HeroAca doesn't follow that route, it doesn't mean it has to be forced to. That woke type of thinking would just piss off most people more than it already does in normal life outside if anime. ¬_¬

Soundtrack made this episode way more enjoyable than it was in the manga.

Bakugou with the wisdom and Endeavor telling Todoroki he'd become a Dad Todoroki could be proud of was nice.

Aoyama! xD
That whole ordeal was such a misdirection when it first happened in the manga, though it seems like they adapted both chapters here.

I enjoyed both the first and second half. First half for Bakugou acknowledging that he also looked down on others, therefore underestimating what they're capable of and passing off said knowledge to his bratty kouhai. Watch that kid grow up five to ten years later being a Bakugou otaku.

Also, Aoyama being both a creep and a sweetie pie. Glad he's friends with Midoriya now. Kinda of sad knowing that despite how the students in their class seem to be close, Aoyama eats by himself and didn't really have his own group of friends within their class.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

For me the soundtrack of the manga was more epic, especially when the Dark Souls III OST's started!

Camie was priceless using her quirk to play Todoroki and Bakugou as prince charming XDD Bakugou seemed like he wanted to throw up, though... And in the end, they have worked out a way to win those kid's hearts in a magical way thanks to Cami's quirk and bakugou's strategy.

Endeavor is showing his feelings and I wasn't surprised by Todoroki's reaction.

Aoyama freaked me out for behaving the way he did... Even so, it was a good episode :)

Ah, it's the classic "sneak onto someone's balcony in the middle of the night and write a message using cheese" method of making new friends. Never fails.

Still not convinced Aoyama doesn't know even more than he's letting on.

A-B-C aren't set in order of "strenght", but just a way to keep class sizes managable. It's not like grades where class A is the best, B is slightly worse and so on, but just a way some countries keep their schools kinda organized.
Since BNHA focuses on the kids of class 1A, it seems like that's the best class, and I guess since it's where the main characters are, it is, but B and so on aren't just for the weaker students.
I guess the others courses, like Support and Business are for the "weaker" students, but.. yeah.



I've been looking forward to Endeavor slowly warming up and trying to be a proper dad and hero for years now, glad to see the moments was done well in the anime. I enjoyed it in the manga, but his voice actor did a great job.
Kinda looking forward to this next arc, it was pretty fun too.
