I rather enjoyed the recap episode this time and Overhaul seems like an interesting villain, but it does feel like things are dragging a bit to this point (the fact that there was already a week with no new episode doesn’t help). Seems like this coming week will be more action packed though. It’s scheduled to be a 2 cour season (25 episodes), so they can still cover a lot of material.

While the plot didn't progress that much, I really enjoyed today's episode! Tamaki is my favorite character now 😂

I found it hilarious that they solved Mirio's clothes thing by saying that they made his clothes out of his hair 😂 just wondering how long that took 😂 

Looks like it will take a while until they get to Eri though

Even though the focus of this week was supposed to be Red Riot,  the high point for me was the reveal of the other aspect of Fatgum’s quirk which took me completely by surprise

able to not only absorb all those physical attacks, but store the energy from them to turn back on his opponents

I think he’s my favorite of the new characters.

But to this point I still don’t feel like the fights have been as exciting as I’d come to expect from this series. Hopefully that will change once they confront Overhaul face to face.

I thought this week's episode was great! All in all it's a bit sidetracked, but I still enjoyed the fight.

Fatgum's ability surprised me as well 😂 Although, for some reason I did dislike his change of appearance. Fatgum and Red Riot are an interesting combination though!

I figured this would be the case since 1st film was that way, though it will be at least a couple months after the japanese release probably. Though the creator’s comments on this probably being the last movie along with some of the scenes in the last trailer makes me wonder what they have planned going forward.

Personally I liked it going from cartoonish/comical to badass.

This week had some really good stuff, but also somethings that didn’t work well from my POV.
Kirishima’s speech to Fatgum at the beginning actually did more to build his character than all of last week IMO. Likewise Rappa actually developed from a standard goon to a character with at least a bit of substance. Seeing what motivates him and the respect he earned for Kirishima (although that means he wants a deathmatch with him later 😂). Also great to see Toga and Twice get actively involved (hadn’t seen Toga get this psychotic/vicious before). And bringing out how Twice feels responsible for the death & injury if his teammates shows the camaraderie that seems lacking in Overhaul’s group.

However, the way they kept jumping around from scene to scene felt out of synch and even the fight choreography didn’t seem to flow very well at times, though it still offer more excitement in a while.

The season seems to be improving somewhat anyway, so hopefully they can keep the momentum going.

Man, Ohiotaku, when you're spot on, you're spot on 😂 I also had the impression that the fight scenes seemed a bit 'abrupt'

While I thought the whole Rappa thing was great, I do wonder about the whole how he had those 'death matches' with Overhaul but is still alive. They might have explained it before though.

Also, what was up with the whole Tomura Shigaraki face scene? I know he has a hand in front of it usually but I didn't see anything all that unusual

It wasn’t just the action, the way they kept switching between groups and present/past made the second half feel like a jumbled mess in a lot ways.

Overhaul’s quirk let’s him take things apart and put them back together or alter them. Apparently that include body parts/organs. So he can inflict lethal damage but then repair it afterwards (if he chooses too). Someone having that level of control over whether you live or die would have to be intimidating. There have to be limitations to his quirk, but they haven’t revealed them yet (I assume he would need to “repair” the damage fairly quickly to keep someone alive)

The focus this week was on Le Million vs Overhaul. In addition to his quirk, Overhaul’s tactic to manipulate people’s emotions in order to “break them down”. Making Eri stay with him by telling her it’s her fault when others get hurt & using the threat of Eri getting injured to make Mirio vulnerable. It’s implied that his quirk may be gone for good, but he may at least survive since Deku/Eraserhead/Nighteye all arrived. I don’t know, despite the fact that he’s supposed to be an important character, he never really clicked with me. They also seemed to use a lot of still-shots during the fight, which took away a lot of the excitement. Anyway, guess we’ll see how Midoriya fares against Overhaul next week.

As any of you watched the OVAs yet?

I had no idea there even were OVAs until I read this thread. I was never a big fan of MHA anyway, but now I want to see the OVAs. It appears the 3rd OVA was released just this year as well.

Finally caught up on the recent episodes. I did get why Nighteye thought that Lemillion should have been Allmight's successor, because they kinda have the same attitude. I enjoyed that they are getting to the main part of the season now, and Overhaul seems to be finally showing off his skill (who knew he could fuse with others). What I did find kinda strange about today's episode is how many people are supposedly killed, or almost killed. I kinda wonder how they are going to remedy it. I highly doubt that Overhaul is going to restore them all, at least not voluntarily. All this time I somehow expected Eri to heal them in a way, but this doesn't seem to be the case either. I wonder though, if she might be able to restore Lemillion's power?
What bothers me a bit is that the others seem to be joining the fight now. I kinda wanted to see more of a Deku vs Overhaul, where Deku uses his full power. I mean, the episode title for next episode indicates as such but let's see.

This week's episode was a bit unexpected I think. I did expect Deku to fight Overhaul but, well, not in this way 😂 The fight was decent but I don't know, it somehow felt 'rushed' in a way.

I didn't really get Eri's quirk. Apparently she can 'rewind' someone's development? What was the whole evolution stuff though? 😂 They'll probably use her quirk to restore the others I guess.

I really enjoyed hearing more about Overhaul's and Eri's past! What I didn't get was if Overhaul 'temporarily disabled' the old man and why exactly. Curious to see how this goes though, since I expect that Overhaul won't simply be captured.

@Serge heartless if you haven't caught up, nows the time. Remember when we were all guessing about Dekus future and a healer that could make him 100% again.. I think we've found one, in a weird, unconventional way.

 

That aside, I really appreciate Lemillion as a character about 100 times more now. I hope he gets his quirk back. Eri can probably save him.

Lemillion best boy

Looks like the next arc will be much lighter in tone. And judging from the video Mirio & Eri won’t be out of the action long

      People think shanks is the strongest yonko but they never saw him even fighting. Yes, I'm talking about when people put their yonko power rankings and its something like 1st - shanks, 2nd - kaido .. etc.. Why shanks first when you already know that Kaido is the strongest creature alive and when it's 1v1 u bet on kaido... In my opinion, the list goes like this

      1. Kaido.
      2. Big Mom.
      3. Blackbeard.
      4. Shanks.
      But you can disagree.

      Big Mom, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated characters in one piece. A lot of people think she is the weakest yonko while we have only seen her get hurt by her own attack ones. She was able to defeat a 300-year-old strongest giant with one hit as a 5-year-old without her fruit and even Pirate King Roger avoided fighting her and stole her poneglyph. She even clashed with Kaido for a time and the fact she has such a strong crew might even make her the strongest if we also are talking about there crew.

      Realtively new to anime, so I am looking for some inspiration in animes and anime streaming services. Currently I have Netflix, Wakanim and Crunchyroll.
      Favorites this far is:
      Death Note, Attack on Titan, The Seven Deadly Sins and Sword Art Online.
      Looking for similar type of series. A little dark, fight for survival, but strong characters who has strong bonds with eachother.
      Particulary fond of characters as: Mikasa, Levi, Annie, Ymir and Eren from AoT, L from Death Note, Meliodas and Ban from 7DS, and Kiroto, Asuna, Shugu from SAO.
      Have made an attempt on Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, but I just can't be bothered to watch more than the first episode because of the whole Chibi situation and I feel like the characters and the "mood" is a little to juvenile and cheerfull for that type of show. Is this show going to get better? I feel such a pressure from all the fanboys of this show so my attitude has become "meh."
      Looking for some with high quality storyline 4-6 seasons. But if there is a show with hundreds of episode which is bingeable and is quality troughout I'll gladly take reccomendations.
      Please give a little description of the show especially if it is a must watch that isn't what I have requested.
      But hey be my guest reccomend what you feel. 😀
