    For anyone who hasn't read the manga, I suggest posting in this thread that I am linking. This section will be filled with spoilers from manga only readers, even from just thread titles, so these threads are for the manga readers who want to discuss the anime as it pertains to the manga.

    The art was so shit this episode, it was distracting.
    And they made Kaminari's moment incredibly undewhelming. and it was the only moment I was looking foward too in the licience exam. :sadpanda

    like wtf Bones.


    Hoping, Deku vs Bakugou 2 isn't ruined.

    Yeah Kaminaris supposed big moment felt... underwhelming. I only watch the Anime so I only knew he was supposed to shine, and after watching the episode I was like "that's it? :saitamapathy"

    Expected more. Iida MVP tho.

    Also, anime makes another hint, much clear then manga. Aoyama being quirkless, and his belt is just a some kind of gajet?

    I took it as an indication of him just being kinda queer/different, and then him sort of owning that and flaunting it in later life.

    Looks like the movie's production schedule really fucked with this arc, I hope this arc was the sacrifice and not the rest of the content that comes after this. The first 13 episodes were a bit wonky but you could tell they were actively trying to make it look the best it possible could. I hope they don't do another movie and anime season, its basically doubling your work load.

    If anything, I think the schedule should go Season-->Movie--Break-->Season-->Movie-->Break.

    A movie shouldn't be happening during while the anime season is airing.

    The thing is a movie is about as big of production as a season, a movie would mean longer breaks between seasons if they didn't do them at the same time.

    That's fine. Better than the animators being overworked and either the movie or series suffering. Bonus point, it lets the manga build more material.

    I don't understand this sentiment of "let the manga build more material" bit I see pushed. I understand the ptsd of previous jump giants, but there is almost a 100 chapter gap between the manga and anime right now. It will take another 50 episodes for the anime catch up to where the manga is right now. Even if season 4 is 50 episodes, the manga will still be 70ish chapters ahead of the manga when season 4 ends. By the time for season 5 starts up, assuming a 6 month gap, that is another 25 manga chapters, if season 5 runs for 50 episodes to catch up again, 50 more manga chapters will be made in that time span.

    It will take at least two years of a nonstop adaptation for the anime to catch up with the manga. There is no danger of ever catching up with the current pace.

    that was.. an episode.

    well at least they are not screwing up anything important. I only have any expectations for the Gang Orca and Deku vs Bakugou fights. Kaminaris "moment" was pretty underwhelming in the manga as well. I wonder if that guy ever going to look good with a quirk which has so many potential.

    also animal talker guys quirk.. would led to so many animals getting injured and killed in battle. I think he is going to burn out fast unless he'd only work in search parties or some shit.

    I was thinking about this as well when I saw the scene lol. I think it works really well in a kid's manga because most of those students wouldn't hit animals. Like if Half/Half saw a bunch of pidgeons flying towards him he would just hunker down and try and defend himself with terrain where as someone who is a villain like Dabi would fucking fry all those pidgeons in the air with no second glances. The students all are wanting to be heroes hence they are all pure hearted to say the least so they wouldn't fuck with those animals.

    Now....I'm not too into MHA lore since I don't read the manga but who is to say that there are no Quirked animals? Imagine a bear with a fucking steel hide or something. Or a fast as fuck tiger with an engine on his back. If that guy could handle all animals then he can be potentially very dangerous like Aquaman.
    Another note I'd like to point out is that not everybody has durability Quirks. This is a hero manga so each person has some degree of extra strength and durability that is superhuman but even within those confines I'm sure Tusuyu would get fucked up by a big grizzly bear or I'm sure if there was flying enemies (like the guy who was jumping during the Bakugou kidnapping) that the animal guy could call down a rain of terrifying winged birds of prey to unleash hell on him. Bare minimum it would be a distraction.

    Animals can have quirks. It's rare, though.

    I think in most scenarios they'd fight in a city - not a lot of villains would break havoc on a countryside or forest - so he'd be able to call for just a bunch of rats and birds and cockroaches, unless he'd keep a grizzly or tiger or whatever with himself. which would still likely got killed fast against all kind of destructive villains. also feeding that thing and having the room for it must be a pain in the ass and cost a lot.

    also I hope there is a PETA in the world of BnH which wouldnt let him use the animals as a weapon.

    I wonder if his quirk has any effect on animalistic guys, like Hound Dog. maybe he is making Froppy do all kind of dirty things with him at night in that dormitory.
    if I was Spinner I'd keep the distance from that guy as well, being a lizardman and all, he can just get a blackout and next thing he knows is he has a bad taste in his mouth...

    The principal is an animal who manifested a quirk which gives him mastermind tier intelligence.

    could animal talker take control of him, and by extension the whole academy?

    thats a potential final villain you have there.
