TL;DR Review

My Hero Academia (Japanese: 僕のヒーローアカデミア Hepburn: Boku no Hīrō Akademia) is a superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi.

The animation is just as beautiful and fluid as the first season, if not even better.

There are four theme songs for this season. Two opening and two ending themes. The stand-out songs are “Peace Sign” by Yonezu Kenshi, “Dakara, Hitori ja Nai” by Little Glee Monster, and “Datte Atashi no Hero” by Lisa. They are the first opening theme, first ending, and the second ending respectively.

The second season picks up where the first season left off. As with the first season, that introduced us to class 1-A, this season further fleshed them out and include class 1-B and other minor characters. We delve further into their drives and struggles.

Unfortunately, there is one filler episode in the second season of My Hero Academia, and it’s episode 32 (ep 19/25). This episode shows what some of the other characters did during their internships, particularly Tsuyu/Froppy. You’ll hardly even notice it was a filler.

Just like the first season, the first half starts out with a very light tone, and it’s a tournament. The second half again took on a darker tone. We are seeing more movement from the villain side. This season is also more pervy with how prominent Midnight is featured.

I highly recommend this anime for the fan of the series. My Hero Academia contains graphic violence and mild suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.

“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.”
