In this episode of My Hero Academia, certain characters prove that with a proper strategy, it is indeed possible to do the impossible! It’s time to hold on to your seats again, ladies and gentlemen, because, by the looks of it, we’re in the climax!
Japanese Original Episode Title: がなる風雲急
Shoji and Deku went Plus Ultra in saving not only Tokoyami, but even getting to Bakugo and Todoroki! All that’s left was to safely get back to their camp, and they should win! However, the villains didn’t hold back on fulfilling their mission as well, especially because they’ve got grand plans thought out for their target. It’s now or never for both sides!
In one fell swoop: I know I’ve said this all too many times before, but I’m just so proud of these kids. First off, Midoriya. His tactical skills played well into helping him save both his friends, and it was just so awesome! I admit that his plan was risky, but they were already in danger, plus it all worked out, right? The rampaging Dark Shadow ended up beating Moonfish to a pulp in such a short time – a dangerous villain whom Bakugo and Todoroki could barely defend against! Two rescue missions in one fell swoop indeed! I’m also glad Bakugo was quickly able to determine that Dark Shadow could finish the job through all the chaos, and with his and Todoroki’s precise judgment, they stopped the rampaging bird from dealing more damage. (The sound Dark Shadow made when he became smaller was so cute! You can really never judge a book by its cover.) Lastly, I couldn’t help but go ‘Awww’ when we found out Tokoyami lost control because his friend got hurt. Shoji couldn’t leave him like that either, nor hold back Midoriya from saving Bakugo, so he was willing to put himself in harm’s way. I love these kids so much!!
Girl talks: Or more like ‘crazy’ girl talks! Toga’s insane! (And I salute her seiyuu, Fukuen Misato, for doing such a good job voicing her.) But, she was also quite skilled for someone only wielding a knife and a blood-sucking machine up against two heroes in training! Plus, even though Uraraka did a good job subduing her, Toga still managed to get the upper hand by appealing to her maiden feelings, distracting her! Well, I guess Toga was fortunate that the students she faced off with were high school girls, one who had a crush ‘like her’. Makes me wonder how she would’ve fared if it were guys instead. Anyway, I hope Uraraka doesn’t let Toga’s sentiments about how she likes someone get to her, because they’re very different! Then again, now they both have a crush on Deku.
Escort mission: Looking at Bakugo’s dumbfounded face was so funny! I already saw multiple memes on it, how he was so confused on why people were trying to protect him! Even if you keep cursing and shouting at them, you are still their classmate, Kacchan. Also, why would they let the villains accomplish their mission, right? Unfortunately, even with their group that can probably stand against All Might, they didn’t take into consideration a sneak attack from a magician! Going by what he’s called and the focus on the marbles he was holding, seems like Bakugo and Tokoyami are inside! Or maybe they became the marbles? It was so frustrating to see Deku and the others looking so distraught and trying everything they could to catch him!
