My Hero Academia is unexpectedly becoming one of my favorites.
I am not going to try to explain the premise of the show; I am not even going to summarize what the show is about. If you don't already know what it's about, you should probably get yourself an account on VRV (if you don't already have one), and get acquainted with the show.
Anyway, my experience with this show has been nothing but ebbs and flows. Coming from watching shows like Hunter x Hunter or One Punch Man, it was kinda hard to take a show about a bunch of kids trying to become superheroes seriously. And honestly, some episodes affirmed my concerns.
But I don't know if it's the occasional lack of better alternative shows, but I found myself giving My Hero Academia a chance, and I am glad I did.
What did it for me is the show's ability to animate powerful, tense, and emotional situations. Honestly, it's probably the best show at doing this. I get goosebumps each time one of these powerful episodes airs. I mean seriously, I rewatch the whole episode multiple times.
The strange thing is, there are only three episodes that got me so badly hooked on the show, and I now have to admit this is one of my favorite anime shows.
Just the combination of the "Might U" soundtrack and the insane animation created was too perfect for words.
I don't know what these animators are taking, but they're completely in a league of their own.
I simply have no words to express the satisfaction I felt from watching this episode.
Honestly, My Hero Academia has shown that you can turn a generic redemption story into pure gold simply by animating the absolute hell out of it.
