Last episode on My Hero Academia, the U.A Students were tasked with the practical portion of their final exams. Rather than fight robots similar to previous years, our heroes must face off against U.A teachers in two versus one format. Despite having the advantage in numbers, the students are clearly placed in bad matchups against professional heroes and must come up with a way to either capture their opponent or escape. This episode continues right where the last episode left off with another exam.

Tokoyami and Froppy

The first matchup of this episode was very intense, with Tokoyami and Froppy having to overcome Ectoplasms hordes of clones. Tokoyami and Froppy both end up playing to each other's strengths and weaknesses and end up coming out on top with a surprise sneak attack.

Admittedly, the sneak attack wouldn't have worked in a practical sense similar to Deku and Uraraka's strategy in the first season and the show didn't acknowledge that. Despite this, Tokoyami and Froppy still passed.Lida and Ojiro go toe-to-toe with Power Loader in a fight that, while short, does Lida's character justice. Lida is incredibly gifted and is able to overcome a lot of tough obstacles despite being a bit goofy. This fight demonstrates this with Lida giving Ojiro a piggy-back ride so Lida can propel Ojiro forward to get to the escape. Lida initially looks really cool after this moment, but he looks really uncool when he gets buried in the ground afterward.

Yaoyorozu and Todokori

The bulk of this episode is spent on Yaoyorozu and Todokoris fight against Aizawa and it is by far the best. Of course, I will admit that it isn't quite as action-packed as Tokoyami and Froppy's fight against Ectoplasm. However, this fight manages to progress the character of Yaoyorozu in spades. In the first season, Yaoyorozu was very intelligent and one of the best students in the class. After the tournament arc, she became very timid and unsure of herself.

Aizawa knew this and Todoroki caught on to this eventually. Once he did, Todoroki and Yaoyorozu were able to come up with an ingenious plan to capture Aizawa, one that took advantage of Aizawa's shortcomings in his quirk. "My Hero Academia" is very good at fleshing out its side-characters and this episode demonstrates why this is the case.

Conclusion

"My Hero Academia's" latest episode was not only exciting but has me even more hyped for the next episode. With wonderful side-characters and excellent action, this episode managed to deliver some unique fight sequences and superb character development. Let's hope that the next episode has even more of what made this episode fantastic.
