Before the fourth season of My Hero Academia arrives, it’s time to look back at the previous season. Was the physical release worth checking out or is it better to look ahead instead of behind?

Summary

Summer is here, and the heroes of Class 1-A and 1-B are in for the toughest training camp of their lives! A group of seasoned pros pushes everyone’s Quirks to new heights as the students face one overwhelming challenge after another. Braving the elements in this secret location becomes the least of their worries when routine training turns into a critical struggle for survival.

My Hero Academia

Writing

The characters who steal the spotlight in this release are Deku, Bakugou, and All Might. Each has a great moment in the course of these episodes. For Deku, he finds a way to inspire faith in a boy who lost his trust in heroes. Bakugou works to fight against a group of villains who wish to seduce him to the dark side. All Might meanwhile, well let’s just say his battle is the best part of this set of episodes.

This season is deceptive before it ends up delivering a shock to the system. The training camp arc seems like it will only be a bit of character introspective but it moves into a major turning point for the entire series. It’s hard to talk about it without going into major spoilers but there is one aspect which can be mentioned. Fans need to get this so they can constantly rewatch the incredible events unfold.

Animation

The animation for this series does dip a bit but it’s during action scenes. Even then the decline is nowhere near as bad as some of the worst offenders in Shonen anime (looking at you Pain Fight in Naruto: Shippuden). Still, the incredible effect work which is used to showcase the different character’s powers never wanes in the presentation. It’s still at a very impressive level of visual excellence.

Extras

The extras on the physical release definitely sweeten the pot and make the physical release worth checking out. The interviews with Yuki Hayashi (the series’ composer) and Daiki Yamashita (Deku’s Japanese voice actor) offer some interesting insights into the creation of the series. Additionally, there is an outtake reel, which always makes a physical release worth picking up for the humor it provides.

My Hero Academia

Conclusion

My Hero Academia: Season Three Part features one of the best moments in the entire series. It’s a release which all fans need to obtain. Let’s hope the fourth season is full of as many great episodes as the first part of the release of the third. As always, PLUS ULTRA!

My Hero Academia Season Three: Part One is available from Funimation.
