My Hero Academia episode 5 review
For the first time, I feel like My Hero Academia is on track. The premise behind this episode is that Izuku goes to his new classroom, only to find a bizarre teacher who has every intention of making him drop out. If he finishes last in the field test, then he’s out. Izuku’s only hope is to figure out a way to use his newly earned power. Meanwhile, All Might looks on watchfully.
All Might’s character design annoys me, and for that matter the entire animation of this show gets on my nerves. This isn’t a beautifully animated show like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Instead, it’s a bit lazy in the animation department. That being said, this was the first episode that I enjoyed, as it looks like we’re finally going to get more characters involved and have a goal in mind.
Character of the episode: Izuku
Still not much competition here.
Episode rating (out of four stars): ***
