We here at oprainfall don’t just love video games: we’re big fans of anime, too. So in celebration of the medium, we’re here to give you our thoughts on what we’ve been watching each week as we watch it. Old, new – anything goes.
My Hero Academia
So we’ve finally seen Shigaraki Tomura’s ‘Origin’ in full, and I think this episode pretty neatly wrapped up what we learned last week. It was definitely less on the gore side and more on the typical shounen battle setup, but it was nice seeing Shigaraki actually be a threat again after feeling like the League of Villains was spinning its wheels. I love complex villains with moral codes as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s nice to have someone who just revels in destruction, so I appreciate what’s going on with Shigaraki. And while his fight with Re-Destro wasn’t as flashy as previous battles we’ve seen, I loved how it leaned into the raw destructive power Shigaraki wields. The animators absolutely nailed his expressions and the joy he felt. Also really digging the new hair color. I really enjoyed this My Villain Academia arc, and it was nice to see the League get some more screen time. It’ll be interesting to see how our heroes go about dealing with this new threat from here on out. – Leah
