Things have gotten wild this week in My Hero Academia, and I wouldn’t have expected anything less! However, a lot of events still surprised me, some even creeping me out! We also finally discovered the quirks that some of Class A’s opponents have, and just how powerful they are!
Japanese Original Episode Title: 這い寄る士傑高校
The first round of the provisional license exam has begun, and as we saw previously, U.A.’s students were the first to be targeted by the majority! Most of Class A decided to stick together, but despite their best efforts at defending, they were separated from one another! Deku ended up facing an enigmatic girl from Shiketsu, who seemed to have quite the interest in him.
Upgraded Class 1-A: Like I said in my review last week, U.A.’s freshmen have grown so much after the Sports Festival! Not only did they create ultimate moves specifically for this exam, but the villain attacks and intern work they survived since then shaped them to become far more experienced than others! As they were defending against their opponents, you could really see the fruits of their hard work. But then again, their enemies weren’t ones to be trifled with either! Most of them were a year higher, which kinda evened out the whole experience thing between them. Plus, their quirks were also insane, especially Shindo’s (the one with the vibrate quirk that looks like Deku)! If it weren’t for him forcefully separating Class A, I wonder how they would’ve fared.
Yoroashi Inasa: Doesn’t this guy’s incredibly strong quirk match his incredibly passionate heart? I found that very amusing! From another perspective, though, I’m so glad that none of Class A were there when he unleashed his OP attack! To think that he single-handedly destroyed 120 people’s hopes and dreams in one fell swoop! No wonder he ended up at the top of the recommended students in U.A. However, he only needed to hit two people to pass; he even said that he won as if he was playing a game. Somehow it gave me the impression that he’s a bit simple-minded. Maybe he thought the one who scored the most hits wins?
Utsushimi Camie: Hoo boy! Deku caught the eye of another creepy girl! Not only were her intentions hard to read, but even her abilities were ambiguous. She was able to hide her presence, but she said it wasn’t her quirk. Then she transformed herself into Uraraka to catch Deku off guard, so could that be her quirk? All I know is that she was very bold, in every sense of the word. It’s a good thing Deku was so serious that he wasn’t distracted by her ‘advances’; I bet if it was Mineta or Kaminari in his shoes, they would’ve been immediately out of the game! It’s also great that Deku knew Uraraka very well, which prevented him from getting another target hit! Pretty sure Ochako would be over the moon once she learns how closely he’s been watching her to know the difference!
