Editing these conversations hurt. I don’t know how Keiko did it back when we were talking about After the Rain. I’m just really glad I have a good show here. Poor cakes have one of the worst shows to edit and host in her blog. Thank gawd, I chose smartly and lazily, lol.
May 6, 2018
TPAB: the pay off episode, lol
Keiko: That’s a good way to put it lol
Leap250: that fight was as sweet as I remember it
TPAB: is it as fast in the manga??
Keiko: I love how the fight wasn’t that long but packed quite the punch
TPAB: come to think of it, are there any long dragging fights in the manga, later or so
Leap250: yeah, took only like 3-4 chapters. Nah, BnH is really good at pacing 1 on 1s and the like
TPAB: so nothing like in Naruto, for example, or One Piece
Leap250: it’s the large scale battles that last longer
Keiko: Oh that makes sense really.
Keiko: Yeah he had given up at one point
Leap250: this is also where the story kinda subtly explains to you how limitless One For All actually is, as opposed to just something that maxes at the limit of a 100%
Keiko: He was apologizing to everyone and his eyes went blank. I honestly thought that was it for him
TPAB: oh yeah, one million, lol
Keiko: That’s true. It has more potential than just 100%.
Leap250: at least he didn’t blast his legs this time. I wish he’d use em more huh
Keiko: True he realized he needed his legs to run from place to place
TPAB: will muscle guy return? Rematch in the future maybe??
Leap250: nah, that’s it for him
TPAB: seriously? aww man. i like him and his freaky powers
Keiko: Ohh I’m gonna miss him. His power was something
Leap250: augmenting quirks are the best in this universe, lol. The simple stuff like “being strong”
TPAB: better than the nomus, tbh
Leap250: even all might is just a flying brick
TPAB: yeah, almight isn’t really a complicated hero
Keiko: Hahah yeah he is. I like that simplicity of it
Leap250: as far as enemies are concerned, well. There are more neat ones to come yep xD
TPAB: this one guy is already awesome, so I can’t wait for the rest
Keiko: Oooooo 😮 I’m excited to see them!! That’s true. These villains are good!
Leap250: man, it must be tough being Deku’s mom having to go through all this every other day xD
Keiko: I know right? I feel sorry for her. Must suck to be the mother of a hero
TPAB: Deku got tougher though, since he lasted longer than expected.
Keiko: Yeah he did. I think his strength comes from wanting to protect people so because he had someone to protect, he was able to keep going
Leap250: That makes him both a good and bad hero really, right now at least
TPAB: his previous fights are not as hopeless as this one though, even if you knew he’d win it. And yeah, he’s flawed in a good way
Keiko: That’s true. It works as a double edges sword for now but it suits him because of the way he is
TPAB: yeah, makes you want to root for him harder
Leap250: eternal underdog, the guy
TPAB: the anime really knows how to make us care, it’s amazing. I still hate Kota though
Keiko: Hahah Kota was a nice reason for this fight at least. He isn’t all that bad
Leap250: Kota used Water Gun. And it was Sooo not effective
TPAB: he did save Deku though
Keiko: True. It was effective at waking Deku up and putting him back into action though
Leap250: it was more him realizing, oh hey the kid has a quirk and he’s using it now, but yeah. Still funny the way he just splashed muscular hoping for something xD
Keiko: Hahaha true lol it was pretty ineffective but he is just a kid lol
TPAB: his presence in the fight was kinda needed, since it’s another factor for Deku’s hopeless situation. When Deku’s arm broke protecting the kid, I kinda knew something awesome will happen, and yay, i love this episode
Keiko: That’s true. Once his arm broke, you just know somethings coming
TPAB: omg, they killed her off. She was eaten?!
Keiko: 😮 she could still be alive but severely injured 😮
TPAB: is her “whereabouts” a big part of the succeeding story?
Leap250: they wouldn’t introduce her without reason yep
TPAB: like the mole storyline??
Keiko: Oh wow 😮 I want to know where she went now!
Leap250: sorta xD It should come to light after this whole fiasco with the camp. Speaking of which, poor pixie bob 😦
Keiko: Oooooo 😮
TPAB: the other cat girl, right? hahaha
Leap250: got absolutely smashed by an otherwise OP quirk. Pixie bob would’ve been a huge help here with her earth golems after all. It makes sense why they took her out first.
Keiko: True. By taking her out, they avoided distractions really
Leap250: Magne is also pretty ridiculous. His quirk is polarity if I’m remembering correctly, not strictly magnetism, so he makes anything “magnetic”
TPAB: wait, why did he have trouble getting to his weapon when he fought in ep 5?
Leap250: he can’t pull metal himself. He has to attract things to his metal
TPAB: except himself???
Keiko: Right so unless he has metal on him he can’t pull anything to himself
Leap250: yep yep
TPAB: why not have metal on him then? like a necklace? stupid guy. I’ve seen the power to turn towel into steel become scary effective, lol
Leap250: because a gurder weighs enough already xD
Keiko: Hahaha it is kinda stupid really
Keiko: Is he better then? TPAB is getting really excited hahaha
Leap250: same, sadly, but really there’s no getting better with the guy
TPAB: he returns over muscle guy, seriously?
Keiko: Hahahaha yeah I’d rather have muscle guy return than him!
Leap250: there’s perfectly sound reason as to why
TPAB: there better be
Leap250: I mean, at least I can say Stain fanboy won’t be back
Keiko: Yeah, I don’t want him there for no reason
TPAB: the ninja turtle, lol
Keiko: Hahaha I’m glad. I don’t wanna see him tarnishing Stain’s name any further
Leap250: Asui goes against someone else though. Or at least, we see her and Uraraka come across somebody
TPAB: It was slightly seen in ep 5
Leap250: oh was it ep5? my bad xD
TPAB: oh wait, is the kota arc over? or will we see him again? I don’t want to see him again
Keiko: Yeah is this his whole arc?
Leap250: ah, yeah
Keiko: Oh that’s good :’)
TPAB: oh thank god. Just the obligatory “thank you” scene left, right?
Leap250: yep, ready your tissues
TPAB: lol, I only cry when deku is getting beaten up, or shirtless
Leap250: haha, as always, I’m excited for what’s in store for you guys. ratings shall we?
Keiko: Same I’m really excited as well!!
TPAB: 10/10 for shirtless Deku
Keiko: Yeah this was a 10/10 brilliant ep!
TPAB: I replayed this episode five times throughout the week, lol
Leap250: yep, 10 no question. 10 million even
Here’s a funny thing about our time zones. At any given time, it’d be morning/afternoon/evening for any of us. One of us will inevitably sacrifice their time, and I’m really glad my collaborators are cool with it. Life is harsh though, so our schedule never really align the way we want it. It’s a fun learning experience though, so I do hope you guys enjoy it. We literally burn midnight oil for this sh*t, and it is as fun as it is exhausting.
