And don't even get me started on Aoyama, what even was that 😂 Maybe it's just me, but I kinda didn't get it.

I think the whole thing about cheese was supposed to be a stereotypical joke about him being part French (actually his whole character seems that way). It seemed like they were trying to make him more tragic by revealing that his quirk actually damages his body & he has to wear that belt at all times, but the other aspects are just so goofy it had no impact (for me anyway)

I loved seasons 1 & 2. Season 3 had some awesomeness, but parts were underwhelming IMO. The current season just can’t seem to get rolling.

Of course if you don’t like shonen, the points moot :P

The school festival arc is getting fun with everyone finding a role to suit them for the concert (band, dancers, fx). Bakugo as drummer comes as no surprise 😂) And for a more comical villain Gentle & La Brava are perfect (equal parts Youtuber, gentleman thief & stage magician). We even got a bit of mentoring between Allmight & Deku.

The thing about this episode was that to me it kinda seemed a bit dragged out. I would have wanted to see more about the training with Allmight and less about the festival planning. The festival itself seems interesting but why did they show the organizational stuff so long 😂 I suppose it's part of showing the characters off more

This week was pretty much more of the same from last week. Very funny people wondering if Eri was Mirio’s kid 🤣 

It was good to see Mei again, Deku better test out any gear she makes for him though. Also got a bit more insight into Gentle & La Brava’s characters.

I saw Heroes Rising this afternoon which takes place after season 4 & it gave a bit of a preview of what Deku & Allmight’s training will lead to. I’m glad that Chimera & Slice got captured instead of killed. They’re too cool to be one shot villains & hopefully they’ll show up again spacer.pngspacer.png

Just watched the latest episode & geez, the relationship between Gentle Criminal & La Brava...I just don't know what to say. It's a deep bond but I'm more than a little disturbed by it.

@RuthisianCodex why is that? because la brava is rather young or because of something else? I thought it was great to get better info on their background

Oh the extra background is great, don't get me wrong. It's the fact that she's not only way younger than him(the way the episode shows it is as if she's still just a teenager running around with this guy. Now, given cultural differences & all that, this could be completely acceptable & no big deal where they are but for me just eh...) but obsessive relationships like that are just so unnerving because they're not built on anything positive. I mean, when she first learned about him she was in  a deep depression & just grasped onto the 1st thing that looked good & became instantly obsessed & devoted herself to him. Also, the episode alludes to the idea that she stalks after her love interests, yikes! Add to that the fact that Gentle Criminal choose a life of crime because of his need for validation rather than finding some other way to get noticed & make his mark. Talk about toxic all the way around. Their bond is built & fortified by desperation.

@RuthisianCodex that's quite a serious take on it 😂 not saying you are wrong or anything, I just didn't give it as much thought because the whole la brava gentle criminal thing seemed more as a comedic aspect overall to me. but yeah, there definitely are some things there that are unusual to put it in the best possible way. I don't think they will be playing a major role in the rest of the anime though, which then raises the question of why they would introduce them with such a background

I get the same feeling though they tried to make it a little less cringey than it first seems. Gentle’s hair was white in the scene where he was 22, so it’s a natural color, not due to age. But another scene had him refer to himself as middle aged, so I’m guessing 31 - 35. They comment on La Brava being short for her age but still guessing she’s about 14 - 16. So no matter how you look at it it’s still a minor girl & an adult man approximately twice her age. It’s likely a good bit of their feelings are admiration on her part & gratitude on his. Not to mention loneliness since they are both social outcasts. But they are very lovey dovey in the way they talk to each other, which makes it feel more than a little ... incomfortable.0

@Illusion of Terra hehe, yeah I tend to really get into character analysis if it's a show I greatly enjoy. Another reason I focused so much on them is because of Eri's attendance at the school event. We all know that she's got major stuff going on so for two new characters like that to be introduced at this time, it just makes me feel like somehow they would get involved with her or cause something bad to happen that involve her in some way. 

And @Ohiotaku exactly, see Gentle Criminal is the one who keeps talking about how much he's aging & stuff & that just makes it creepy. If Colonel Sanders had a disgruntled, estranged brother I bet he'd look & act just like Gentle Criminal!

Just checked their “official” ages.  Gentle is 32 (called it). La Brava is supposedly 21 (no way in hell 🤣) Of course it’s a common trope in anime that male characters are younger than they look & females are older.

They say that humans can live to be 120.  To me that means middle age is 60 so I figure I've got a few years yet to go.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it... for now.  I've got 5 years to come up with another one.  :D

That's a theme I've noticed in anime. Especially with single female characters in the mid to late 20s. 

And with La Brava, it's not her height that makes her seem like an adolescent, it's her mindset & behavior. Just very immature.

After this week's episode I wonder what will happen to Gentle and LaBrava. I didn't quite get the last scene.

The festival was quite alright I think, nothing way over the top but what I expected. I think it was a rather enjoyable few episodes between the more serious ones!

Oh boy, now I can't wait to see it 🙂

Oh my gosh! Eri is just so adorable, I just want to scoop her up & protect her from everything! And I really enjoyed the school festival too! What a fun episode!

Eri’s reaction is definitely a high point, not just of the arc, but the season. And Mirio & Midoriya tearing up (couldn’t ask for a better pair of “big brothers”). 
I wish the actual animation of Class 1A’s performance had been better, but at least they didn’t resort to the wonky looking CGI a lot of idol series use :P I did like the bit about Jiro’s background. That her love of music has a connection to her parents & she actually had conflicted feelings about becoming a hero vs a performer. But it’s not necessarily an either/or situation.

Still mixed feelings about Gentle & La Brava. Can’t help but wonder if it wouldn’t have worked better to keep them strictly comedic characters. While giving them a chance to reform has potential, the more seriously they try to portray them, the more the awkward aspects of their relationship stand out.

I thought they would devote the last 2 episodes of the season to a mini arc on the titan-esque villain we saw earlier, but looks like the emphasis next week will be on adult heroes like Endeavor & Hawk (who played a minor role in Heroes Rising).

definitely agree! thought that was really interesting from a character I had not given that much thought to before

not a big fan of 'Hawks' but it's good they are continuing the main story. also, I thought that Endeavor's new outfit was just for show at first 😂

      I joined this forum a couple weeks ago and I've been trying to submit information to those with questions regarding an anime they saw in the past (Recommendations Section). If you saw something in the early 2000's or 90's...post your question if you're looking for the name of or information regarding an older anime in the Recommendations section. I'll try to answer this week or next week if I recognize the title. Even if I don't recognize your description entirely; I can still try to point you in the right direction. If you posted 'looking for...' context in Recommendations; check to see if I haven't already written an answer. I joined Anime Forums to help people find or rediscover classic anime. I know over 300 classic titles by memory and have knowledge of some rarities which never made it out of Japan. If it's regarding manga, though...I'm not quite as helpful (I never read manga quite like I watch anime).

      So, recently there this one epic hand 2 hand battle in Hitori no Shita 3rd season, who's adapted by Big Firebird Cultural Media.
      and I found it's one of the most promising development of the animation, while 1st had 6.8 rating and 2nd 7.4, it's truly that maybe this 3rd season can be higher than the other 2 seasons. 
      let's take apart from "ah you know, they were changing their studio animation" things. At one point, the studio's still coming from china. So what do you think about their development on taking the animation ? did the progress going well from your point of view ?
