Anime Lounge: My Hero Academia Season 2

Series: My Hero Academia

Episodes: Season 2: 14 – 25

Premise: A young boy, Izuku Midoriya, from Japan lives in a world where at least 80 percent of society is born with some type of extra special ability, called quirks. Quirks are used by a segment of the population to fight crime, and Midoriya idolizes the world-famous All Might, the No. 1-ranked hero. After a chance encounter with his idol, quirkless Midoriya begins to train with All Might to gain his passed-down quirk One for All. Midoriya’s journey to becoming the No. 1 hero is chronicled as he joins U.A. High School and learns the true meaning of becoming a hero. Season 2 sees the students of U.A. High School show off their talents to the various hero agencies in a tournament setting and in anticipation of starting internships for their future hero careers.

Is it worth watching?: Yes. It’s gotten amazing in the second season with the insight into the Class 1A students, more of what it means to be a hero and the introduction of the overall series villain in All For One.

Breakout character: Izuku Midoriya aka Deku. Our main character has finally come into focus, and he’s beginning to look like a leading man in this season. With his short-term gains in mastering All For One, Midoriya is becoming a much more nuanced character and leading the series with aplomb.

Where it’s going?: We’re gaining more insight into the League of Villains and All For One’s master plan and watching Class 1A grow. Season 3 promises to show massive growth for all involved, which is exciting.
