My Hero Academia Season 6 Ep. 2 Action Goes Plus Ultra; Mirko shines

|

This week’s episode of my hero academia, “Mirko, Hero #5”, takes off exactly where the last one left off, and it doesn’t slow down at all. This season has started, and she was upset from the first moment. Our heroes pull out all the stops to gain ground on the enemy who plans to ambush them. Animation, effects and music: every scene and POV cut looks so grand, and we’re here for it!

The episode, as the title suggests, focuses on Mirko. And what a great spotlight it was to see how badass she is. I loved every second of watching her kick ass and wish I had more. I’m a sucker for strong female heroes who can fight and be funny and don’t need to be saved by shonen lead… um… I’m looking at you, Naruto- um… Anyway, I digress. It was great to finally see Mirko in the spotlight, and also a bit sad that it was a bit short at the same time. I mean, she makes it clear that she won’t go down without a fight. I’m not ready to see her go down just yet, though.

While Mirko has found Dr. Garaki, Nomus now keeps the rest of Endeavor’s team busy. Endeavor and Eraserhead seem like a great team, so much so that the Number One Hero asks Eraserhead to consider being his sidekick; it looks like they’ve already had this conversation. Garaki chooses this moment to unleash the high-end Nomus – so powerful they even have the ability to think for themselves, and they crave certain heroes. One of them even managed to claim one of Mirko’s arms during the fight. However, she still manages to have it with close combat skills and her powerful thighs. Fortunately, they can now all leave since the hospital has been completely evacuated.

On Team Edgeshot’s side, they’re now running to ambush the villain’s lair behind the mountains, and we see one already doubting Hawks, thinking he had his eye on him the whole time. Midway through the race, Kaminari begins to show how scared he really is, and Midnight comes in with some advice. He starts to think about what’s important to him, and Jirou comes to mind… does that mean he loves her? Awwwwww! I thought that was a very sweet moment. It was also very nice to see him spend a little time in the spotlight, able to deflect an enemy attack from the front lines.

This season of my hero academia already cries war and grief. Although I love this action, I’m starting to feel like I’m going to regret the silly days when they were just class 1-A students. They grow up and things have gotten so dark. At first glance, there are so many vats of purple liquid in which Nomus appears to be floating. I wonder how many of them are active and could join the fight. But so far it was another fantastic episode, and I can’t wait to see that same energy throughout the season.
