i've been waiting for this episode forever. seeing class 1-a perform and eri smile rly brought tears to my eyes. everything about this arc is so wholesome, even tho it's only small. even deku's fight with gentle. wholesome villains, wholesome performance. kyouka is best girl wtf (also happy for nejire for her win) ^~^




i wonder if the students with provisional licenses can be put on the billboard chart? i guess we'll see

This might just be me, but I hope Gentle gets a redemption arc, or something where we can see him reach his goal aswell

Damn, this was a nice episode. I lol'd at the crowd cheering Yaoyorozu's name during their concert, obvious favorite among the UA students.

So happy to see Eri smile finally, and Nejire looked even more beautiful during her performance. Thank god she won as well.

Wonder what'll happen to Gentle and La Brava later on? And OH SHIT, Hawk's is finally animated!!

Wooow. I really loved this episode! Class A's performance was incredible, Kyouka got her time in the spotlight, Nejire won the beauty pagent and Eri SMILED! Also, I can't be the only one who noticed how Tamaki looks at Nejire right? haha

Also, I think we all need to take a moment to appreciate the masterpiece of nerd culture that was Class B's play. I was howling with laughter at that small scene; I wish we could see the full play haha

I'm beyond excited for the next arc... HAWKS HAS ARRIVED! The hero world is about to be shaken up all over again!


No you weren't the only one.
Also, he sounded so soft when he called her a fairy and he was the center of her shot when she won, right?

Damn, i never expected such a great episode! At the beginning of their performance, i was laughing but slowly i started liking it, and what a hell of a performance it was!

Had a lot of backstories and arc endings.
Gentle had a great episode, it made me actually feel bad for him.

But we all know what was the best moment of this episode!




10/10
And the next eps looks amazing too.

That was a good ending for Gentle and La Brava I hope to see more of them in the future.

I really hope a clean version of Jirou's song is released cause it was great! Eri's smile was precious and young Jirou was also cute, I quite liked her backstory bit as well in fact the whole festival was fun.

Honestly I think this may just be my favorite episode of this season.

I'm still questioning the choice of having the song be in english. It felt weird to me.

My other question is: Why was Hagakure's glow affecting her clothes as well? If her quirk can affect clothes, then why can't she wear whatever she wants and carry weapons and have her quirk turn them invisible?

It is always nice to witness a being who has experienced so much trauma and abuse finally be able to smile again (or/and for the very first time).

Hats off for Deku, Mirio and everyone involved in Eri-chan's growth.

Got super teary eyed when she smiled. God it was mostly thanks to Mirio though, he makes my heart break that VA and his character are the highlest of BNHA for me now ToT

She smiled! Man, this scene is so touching.
And Jirou's performance was so good. I was like wondering who is Jirou's singer hha

I still care more about Gentle and La Brava than Deku and this festival.

Lmao Hound Dog going all out.

It was a decent performance though. Not among the top school band performances I have seen, but the developement for the side characters was there atleast. To some degree. Meh. I dont want to compare this to the tournament arc, because this season is probably the lowpoint of BNHA so far.

"Hero dropout wanting attention" was a way more interesting concept then "power Power POWER oh and Im evil".

As its stands now they serve no purpose, might as well have not been included. Thats what I dont like here.

I agree. La Brava and Gentle had way more potential but their potential get wasted just like Stain's potential.

The performance was incredible. Wasn't expecting English for some reason, but this is definitely up there with the performance Given gave us last year. The hype and anticipation must have been so high for the manga readers (my one close friend included).

So happy to see Jiro shine and be happy, and big shoutout to her awesome parents.

When Eri smiled and Mirio teared up, that's when we all teared up. She smile, he cry, I cry. FACTS.

Aoyama sparkled to his full potential. 11/10.

The Beauty Pageant... talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique.

And glad we still had some time for Gentle. His backstory last week was so deep, and I genuinely feel so bad for him. And kudos to Midoriya because in the words of my friend, "Yeah deku is no snitch lol."

I have no beef with you, but your comments are a bit flawed.

I'm mostly responding to kill time, and to fuck with people who get offended by my comments. There's lots of reasons to talk with people even when I don't particularly care what they think of me.


I love MHA as a franchise, but I also have to be honest that this season has been bad and the performance was kinda cringe lmao. I hate it when they sing in English, like imagine in the English dub if they sang in Japanese.

Eri is cute.

The song was okay, but at least Eri-chan smiled. The band's presentation was pretty good too. Looks like the next episode is going to be the start of a brand new arc, but its kinda strange with only two episodes to go.

The performance was a let down.They hyped the performance for like 10 episodes and it fell flat.Jiro sure has an American accent.Imagine,you singing in fluent Japanese at your school festival.Who thought it was a good idea?Why is her backstory shoehorned into the performance?It did nothing and it was cliche af.The dance was cringe and the special effects were Meh.
The only thing positive of the whole school arc is class 1-B play.A crossover play.More of that please.

Eri's smile was wholesome and please drop her as a plot device and build as an actual character.
After three bad arcs,I hope Boku no Hero reclaims it's former glory with the next arc/season.

Strictly speaking, wasn't this performance illegal? Most of class 1A has provisional licenses which grants permission to use their quirks to save lives and to assist in emergencies. Most of them did stuff that was harmless, like Momo's confetti cannons, but Ochako's making random people float could have gone quite wrong.

Not to mention Bakugo creating an explosion indoors and Todoroki creating tons of ice hanging over the heads of the crowd. (neither of them has a provisional license yet)

One other question: Hagakure can make her clothes glow? Can she make her clothes invisible? Does this extend to held items? I thought at first she was glowing, but her hand and head never appeared. I was hoping to finally find out how she wore her hair, too.

The only true reason why I thought this episode was so great was because of Eri and her smile. That is all.

wow Eri sure had a big smile through the episode <3

very fun episode, and the girls all looked cute too, specially Nejire and Jiro, as they realized a part of their dreams with this (music / beauty contest)

10:30 that Mineta's face tho, and the other guy laughing was me :v

i wonder what happens now with the 2 villains, it seemed like they could be forgiven

lastly, wtf was that acting from the other class? probably adding like 20 famous works to that little play HAHAHA

i imagine they can't use them for fights outside the school, but inside they are supervised (the heroes/teachers were there), and they practice their quirks everyday inside the school anyway ... i agree with it being slightly dangerous but it was tested before

Eri-chan smiling ç__ç I'm not crying, YOU are!

Class B show was neither interesting nor funny. It was like "Let's get this over with".

Good job for Ape quirk to show Gentle Idiot he has better things to do than temper tantrums. Seriously, he should've met him much earlier. Such a nice character waster in playing pretend.

I've been ready for this arc to be over with. Spent like 8 episodes building up a school festival that lasted around 7-8 minutes. This season has been a disappointment compared to the previous two imo. I'm fine with a few SOL episodes here and there, but it just felt like filler after the Overhaul arc ended (which also was kind of meh to me). I'm prob in the minority tho, but I want the show to go back to its roots already.

Hopefully the next arc is better.
