Weekly Anime Review: Boku no Hero Academia episode 54Ken Otaku
Warning: The following post contains spoilers from Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) episode 54. Read at your own risk.
The Ketsubutsu Academy attack on our U.A. students continues! After seeing how strong their defense is, they figured the best way to get them is to separate them, so Yo Shindo causes an earthquake using his quirk and separates our heroes from each other!
Meanwhile, on another side of the battlefield, we get to see Inasa Yoarashi into action. He lives up to his reputation and takes down 120 students in one attack, being the first student to pass the first round!
After the earthquake caused by Shindo, Deku finds himself alone. Out of nowhere, a girl appears and hits one of the weak points attached to him. Turns out she is a student of Shiketsu High School called Camie Utsushimi. She isn’t backed up by anyone, unlike the Ketsubutsu Academy students, and decides to keep facing Deku alone. In this situation Deku feels overwhelmed, as this girl has some incredible hiding techniques that aren’t even her quirk!
Their fight is interrupted by Ketsubutsu Academy. However, in all the commotion, Uraraka appears to save Deku, but she gets saved instead, as she slips and almost falls, if it hasn’t been for Deku. He catches her and they run to a safe place.
They are in a safe spot and Deku keeps watching his surroundings. Behind him, Uraraka stretches her hand in order to put a ball on one of Deku’s weak points! Deku expects this and slaps her hand away, asking if she’s one of the Shiketsu High School students.
He is right, and she is none other than Camie from earlier, making herself look like Uraraka! She attacks Deku again but he is saved by Sero and (the real) Uraraka. Seeing that she is outnumbered, Camie just leaves. The three heroes remain together and are off to find the others and pass the exam.
Somewhere else, Todoroki encounters a group of enemies. Even though he seemed to have the upper hand at first, one of the enemies has a perfect counter for his quirk. How will he get out of this situation? How many of the U.A. students will pass the first exam? We shall wait and see in the next episodes!
