My Hero Academia 26: Last Stop Before Things Get Serious

My Hero Academia 26: Last Stop Before Things Get Serious

Continuing from last week’s laid-back second half, this week we also get a lighthearted My Hero Academia episode as a season finale before the start of the second cour.

The episode is basically setting things up for an action-packed second half. The kids all pick their hero names; some come up with cool names which are accepted by Midnight, and some come up with funny or lame names which are unacceptable.

We also see that some students have received offers for internships from different hero agencies with Todoroki getting the most offers, because of his dad being Endeavor, followed by Bakugo for being number one in the sports festival. There is a huge difference in the number of offers Bakugo and Todoroki get compared with the offers Tokoyami, in third place, gets.

The students who got offers will choose from them while the rest will choose from a list of agencies all over the country which accept U.A students. And after making their decisions, they all pack their costumes and leave for their respective agencies.

Uraraka picks a fighting-based agency despite wanting to be a hero who helps with rescue or construction work since that’s what her quirk is best for. It’s good that she’s going for a different agency since it’ll give her some fighting experience too. Midoriya gets an offer from Gran Torino, a now retired hero who was All Might’s teacher at U.A for a year.

The other important thing in this episode is where Iida goes for his internship. Iida also got a number of offers, but he chooses some low-key agency in Tokyo. Why does he do that? Because this is the city where his brother was attacked, who has now possibly lost his super fast running ability, which means that he may not be able to perform his hero duties anymore. He does offer Iida the Ingenium name, but Iida feels that he isn’t up to it yet which is why he doesn’t use it as his hero name.

The second half starts next episode and we’ll be getting a new OP from amazarashi to replace the Kenshi Yonezu one (also seen in the PV), and a new LiSA ED to replace Little Glee Monster’s ED. The new cour starts on the 8th of the next month, which means that there won’t be an episode next week. Bones isn’t having production issues since the show has never looked bad at any point and they were ahead of schedule with this first half at least. The break will help them get even further ahead which will be better for the show’s production, but not so good for us viewers since we’ll have to wait extra long.

The second half is going to be epic with things getting serious as can be seen with its preview. This first half was all fun and games and still managed to be intense, so imagine how exciting this second half will be. The League of Villains has contacted Stain and want him on their side to take down Midoriya, All Might’s successor. Iida wants to, and will, face off with Stain to avenge his brother and it won’t end nice because Midoriya says that he ends up regretting what happened on that day after Iida leaves.

Midoriya has gone to Gran Torino who possibly had the One for All power since he knows about it and had All Might trembling and all. Gran Torino will take up training Midoriya and help him gain control over One for All. And this will lead to quite some exciting moments, like some intense training, Midoriya showing off his coolness with his powers, and the awesomeness we saw in the beginning of the first few episodes. Midoriya gaining control over One for All will make things a whole lot cooler.

The League of Villains have also gained more members and they will be making contact with Midoriya, and Iida will be targeting Stain, all while they wreak havoc all around. The rest of the students will be working with their heroes which will be giving them some much needed experience. We also see All Might with Iida’s brother in the PV, which is kind of interesting.

This second arc is sure to be a blast with all these intense developments and we can expect a lot of sakuga and excitement in this second half.
