It's weird, you'd think that as a series goes on and proves to be popular, each subsequent season would have a higher budget and therefore better animation. But so far, season two seems to be even worse than season one.

Sucks, because the well-animated scenes do look really good.

That's why I always say that Avatar: The Last Airbender did anime better than a lot of anime I've seen: By season two at least, even the non-action scenes had the same amazing animation quality as the action scenes.

Also I think I've figured out part of why I don't like Deku as a protagonist: He just… puts up with Bakugo's bullying.

No, worse, he worships Bakugo, even after Bakugo constantly harassed him and even tried to kill him. Even when he's like, "I'm gonna beat you, Kacchan!" it's still with an air of "Because you're so totally awesome!"

That just rubs me the wrong way, is all. Like, who the hell does that?

I didn't know there'd be so many people!

…Um, no shit, Deku? I mean, didn't they say that the Sports Festival is basically just the Olympics but with superpowers? So it stands to reason that it would attract the same audience as the Olympics.

Keep in mind that the "Awesome" part Deku looks up to isn't Bakugo's personality.
It's his Skills and abilities that Deku looks up to.

Remember: Bakugo was the top ranking student in the entrance exams.
And as the other students pointed out during the training exorcise: Bakugo has incredible combat instincts and can perform advanced maneuvers mid-air.

His skill is something to look up to. And that is what Deku admires and respects.
His personality: Yeah, no. I don't think it's a spoiler to say that Deku says he hates that part of Bakugo.

Good. Todoroki is shit, him and his mommy issues. Midoriya is a boring ass MC and honestly, Bakugou is good. Ochako is slowly becoming MC love interest stereotype, everyone else is just there with not much to do, and the villains are far more interesting than the heroes.

Fair, though I think maybe he takes the admiration part a bit too far? I'm just saying, I hope Deku snaps and erupts at Bakugo, maybe puts him in his place a bit.

@Scrabbleman
Eh, I don't really like Mineta. I don't mind perverted characters either (hell, I love Kelso and Fez from That '70s Show), but I think the problem I have with Mineta is that not only is he a perv, but he's also super whiny a a bit of a wimp.

The wimp part of Mineta I can kinda understand, especially during the USJ attack. I mean, he said it himself: They're only a few days into high-school and are suddenly faced with dozens of men literally trying to kill them.

But yeah, he IS rather one-note, and it can be a bit old.

@Scrabbleman
At first I was worried about Uraraka being that overly stereotypical love interest type. But the way they went with it feels more on the believable side.

And at least we do get to see more of the side characters get focus as things move forward. Especially in Season 4 coming up~

Kimetsu no Yaiba ep 10. The fights are still good, but the constant monologuing is quite distracting. I can't wait for the other two protagonists in the OP to show up, so Tanjiro won't have to talk to himself all the time. I guess this is (at least partly) why magical girl shows have mascots and/or fight in teams, so they always have someone to talk to.

I appreciate Nezuko showing some agency, and I really hope they explore this more. I realize this is still early into a 2-cour adaptation of an unfinished manga, but I don't like Nezuko's development just being magically hypnotized off-screen.

The new stuff about Muzan was interesting. Very blunt in its presentation, but I liked the ideas. I also don't mind the show attempting to humanize its demons a bit.




I also watched Memory of Blue, an impressive student film credited to Studio Himalaya. It's a cute story of friendship that keeps the uncomplicated charm of student films but with the level of polish that would make many professional productions blush. No subs, but they're not necessary.
