You know, I don't like how this show keeps reminding us what powers each student has. I don't think the viewers have that bad of a memory.

And it's a shame just how rushed this plot is moving. Pairing up students and fighting with teachers is quite a big deal, almost on par with the students fighting out in the sports festival. Yet, it felt like the show spent ages covering that, but it's zooming through this one instead.

Obviously, the focus is going to be all on Midoriya/Bakugo/Todoroki as always.

They din rush too much. I thought the pacing was ok.

I'm just wondering: if the next episode is supposedly the final episode, then is there another season altogether?

Yes

then is there another season altogether?

It would be a kind of shitty thing for Bones to just adapt up until this arc and nothing else.

Final:

Good to see this season having a proper closure.

It's nothing really new about what Shiragaki is meant to do: he's always been the nihilistic kind who just wants to see the world burn. Basically the Heath Joker of the show, he's just out to prove how all this happiness and hope are just a farce because of All Might, and getting rid of him becomes his main goal. But that's where his character differs from HJ: Shiragaki sees All Might as an obstacle, whereas HJ sees Batman as his antithesis.

This season's been better than the first part mostly because of the Sports Festival, which spends a lot of time developing the characters and their convictions. But at the same time, it suffered a lot in terms of pacing: it focused a lot of Midoriya for most parts, yet it conveniently zooms past others when it's not to the benefit of the focus of the plot.

It's a 7/10 for me. Very solid still, and I hope it maintains for the third (and maybe final) season.
