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 on par with the first two seasons. However, you will notice much more lazy background place-holders.

There are two opening themes and two ending themes for this season. The stand-out songs are the first and second opening songs, “Odd Future” by Uverworld and “Make My Story” by Lenny Code Fiction, respectively. The second ending song “Long Hope Philia” by Suda Masaki is also a catchy mellow tune.

The third season of My Hero Academia pick up where the last season left of. Though many major events happen, it just doesn’t pack the same emotional impact as the previous seasons, in my opinion.

The tone of the show is starting to become predictable. It will start out light with some training, then dark with the villain attack, then back to light with more school competition.

I think the first two seasons of My Hero Academia had spoiled me. It put too high of an expectation for the third season to live up to. I don’t find this season as re-watchable as the earlier seasons.

There are about two filler episodes this season. Episode 39 (ep 1/25) and 58 (ep 20/25). Episode 58 not only pulled you out of the current arc, but it also switches to a detective who done it genre. This episode is also there just to promote the movie.

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

Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 1 Review

In a time and place where one’s soul can be morphed into a weapon, there are modern-day magicians called Mage Knights. Although Kurogane Ikki is a student at an institution that trains Mage Knights, he has no particular talent in magic and is labeled the Failure Knight or the Worst One. Getting way less than average marks, he is forced to repeat a year. But with the arrival of a new head of the institution, a new rule is created: knights whose abilities are compatible, as decided by the board, must share rooms and train together throughout their school years to maximize their abilities.

Ikki’s room-mate turns out to be Stella Vermillion — a princess from a foreign country and a rank A knight: the type of genius in magic that only appears once a decade. When Ikki walks into the room while she is changing her clothes, it causes a huge misunderstanding that eventually leads to a duel between the two. The punishment for the losing side is the Eternal Submission to the winner.

Forced to live the same room and practice magic together in the upcoming school years, how will Stella and Ikki’s relationship evolve?

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.”

“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.”
