The winner is…: Don’t you think it’s nice that someone who hasn’t gotten a chance to be in the spotlight yet won the contest? Even if it was because of the cake. I actually didn’t think Sato would win despite having unconsciously bribed the girls since everyone seemed impressed with Todoroki’s room, but now I realize that the girls’ focus was immediately turned to the cake he baked when he offered them some! I mean, in general, who doesn’t like a guy who can cook, right?
Making things right: Tsuyu is a gift!! She’s the most mature in Class A, in my opinion, that’s why it was worrying yet refreshing to see her cry. Actually, just by wanting to clear the air by being honest with her classmates was another proof of her maturity. I’m not saying that the others who opted to host some good fun instead were immature; it’s still actually a brave thing to do! However, I think the bravest people confront their feelings AND do something to correct the negative ones. Thanks to her honesty, it was made even clearer to the rescue team members that they shouldn’t act so rashly ever again because their class really cares for each other. (Side note: Due to her small tears and meek crying, Tsuyu reminded me of a forest critter for some reason!)
Themes & Trivia
Yakiniku: In general, this Japanese term refers to any kind of grilled meat dish. Usually, bite-sized meat is cooked, along with some vegetables. Just typing this down is already making me drool!
Washitsu: Means traditional Japanese style room in English. These rooms are still currently widespread in Japan, especially in Japanese style inns (ryokan), bed & breakfasts (minshuku), or temple lodgings, where tourists can spend the night. Since these rooms include tatami mats as flooring, they’re also known as tatami rooms.
I was watching this with my brother and he said the whole dorm thing reminded him of Danganronpa, and I actually agree! I can’t help but remember Gakuen Alice even more now, too. Anyway, I loved this whole episode a lot! My only complaints are probably the unnecessary fanservice done to the girls at some points, and Mineta’s overly pervy attitude. He really took it to the next level this time. Seriously, why is he a character in this show full of amazing characters? I don’t find him funny at all.
They worked hard
It’s back to business in the next episode, and so the students have to get in gear and think up of fantastic hero moves! I wonder how Deku will keep up now that he can’t use his arms due to the risk of damaging them permanently.
Well then, do let us know what you thought of this episode! Maybe you can even share some things that you think the kids can do together now that they’re all living under one roof. And of course, the summer season has officially started, so better check out the shows we’ll be reviewing!
