The end of the joint training battle gave students time to relax but also birthed more questions for our heroes!
The joint training battle simulation is over! The students have a bit of time to breathe and both classes come together for a quick winter celebration. Meanwhile, Katsuki Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki, along with students from other schools, face a final task to receive the provisional hero license!
New Quirk, New Questions
Izuku Midoriya’s experience with a surprise quirk left people in-the-know thinking “what the hell was that?”; even the previous owner of the quirk was in the dark. Deku, Bakugo, and All Might had a little session about the new quirk and, sadly, the young hero could not use the new quirk as he pleased. As expected, Deku will have to train and grow some more before he can utilize the new quirk. The brief glimpse of All for One right before the final training battle suggested something strange was about to happen — and it did — which was connected to the big bad. The relationship between All for One and One for All was made clear ages ago but there are still many mysterious aspects about the two. These little pieces of recently revealed information definitely stirred up intrigue and excitement!
New Licenses, New Era
Mister delinquent along with the half-hot-half-cold stud went through the final step in order to receive their provisional hero licenses. Just a few minutes after, a bunch of villains start robbing bystanders and the student duo make their debut. Bakugo and Todoroki made quick work of the thieves. The young heroes put on quite a show and it was awesome to watch! Even All Might was happy with their performance. The previous number one happily looked on as a new era of heroes was beginning!
Author's Rating: 8.4/10
Not a whole lot happened in this episode and it felt more like a quick pause in preparation for what’s to come. And if the new quirk that popped up is any indiciation, then the next arc is bound to be interesting! The students finally got to relax a bit and even party which was nice to see. Bakugo and Todoroki obliterated some thugs and gifted viewers with a bit of action; this duo could use some more attention. The little party at the end was heartwarming even if Bakugo was constantly screaming at Deku. Hopefully the upcoming pace does to slow down too much as the series approaches the next arc!
Life seems calm for the students for now but something big is definitely on the horizon. Find out what happens when the season continues!
