TL;DR Review

My Hero Academia first OVA, “Save! Rescue Training” took place right after the first season. The 1-A class continue with their rescue exercise and demonstrated their teamwork when they found a villain may still be on the training ground.

The second OVA, “Training of the Dead”, is a team survival training that went horribly wrong when most of the 1-A class got turned into Zombie.

The animation is on par with the TV series’.

These are essentially filler episodes for My Hero Academia, but they are quite entertaining. You may not enjoy this as much if you have not seen the TV show.

I recommend the OVA to the fan of the series. The anime contains moderate graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.

Izuku Midoriya
My motivation might seem trivial compared to yours, but I can’t lose, either. I have to live up to the hopes of those who supported me.”
Shoto Todoroki
“Should we have let people die, all in the name of the law? Isn’t it a hero’s job to save people?”
Shigaraki Tomura
“Heroes and villains both thrive on violence, but we’re still categorized. “You’re good” “You’re evil”. That’s how it is! Symbol of peace? Hah! In the end you’re just a tool for violence, made to keep us down. And violence only breeds more violence.”
All Might
The most inflated egos are often the most fragile.”
Izuku Midoriya
“All men are not created equal.”
Shoto Todoroki
If you wanna stop this, then stand up” Because I’ve got one thing to say to you. Never forget who you want to become!”
All Might
“Whether you win or lose, looking back and learning from your experience is a part of life.”
