At UA Academy, not even a violent attack can disrupt their most prestigious event: the school sports festival. Renowned across Japan, this festival is an opportunity for aspiring heroes to showcase their abilities, both to the public and potential recruiters. However, the path to glory is never easy, especially for Izuku Midoriya—whose quirk possesses great raw power but is also cripplingly inefficient. Pitted against his talented classmates, such as the fire and ice wielding Shouto Todoroki, Izuku must utilize his sharp wits and master his surroundings to achieve victory and prove to the world his worth. – My Anime List

Now I’m sure you’re thinking, “Jake! Didn’t you JUST say you were going to be more strict on your ratings!?!”. Well you’re right, I did and I am. However I found this season to be tight beginning to end. Even the Hero Killer Arc which I consider to be the weakest was still better than what most shows put out on average. Hell I’m giving this season a higher rating than I did for Dragon Ball Z! So basically I’m saying “Hey dummy go watch this show!” It’s one of the biggest trending shows out there for a reason!
The second season of My Hero Academia has taken the series to new heights, cementing it as one of the best Shonen anime around today. It’s the kind of show that fans of the genre both new and old can find something to enjoy about and with the third season already announced, looks to have set the show further along the path to greatness.
Top-notch animation and rich character development make Season 2 of My Hero Academia one of the year’s best shows.
MHA is a very good anime it is paced slower than the manga but there are reasons for this to split it into arcs which are easier to maintain and we don’t run into the “One Piece” syndrome of the manga/anime reaching the same point.

If you’re going to watch this second season, just know that it will be a thoughtful experience beyond the colorful battles. Everything has a reason ranging from the story, themes, morals, and even character names. I can’t say this enough but season 2 really bought out what I had expected as an adaptation. It’s faithful on most parts and leaves me hunger for more each episode. That being said, season 2 is still far from resolving the end story. It actually feels more like building up for more as certain characters are foreshadowed and more threats looms in the horizon for the main characters. However, I came into this show with high expectations and left with awe. With season 3 announced, this sequel is nothing short of been a classic.
