My Hero Academia (Season 4)|Anime| “Character development and plot development.”

Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. I hope everyone is having a great, safe, and healthy week. So, let’s begin.


This season of BNHA presents a new villain group trying to develop a sort of device that can erase people’s quirks using Eri’s quirks. Everyone is busy with their work studies while Bakugo and Todoroki are preparing for their provisional license exam. Later, U.A. hosts a school festival and Deku is made to fight against the Gentle Criminal. At the same time, Endeavour is working to prove himself fit as the new number one hero.


So far this year has been a fun season for new anime and a great year for anime sequels. This season of MHA was a lot of fun to watch because not only did the anime dwell more into an intricate story line by creating irreversible scenarios but they also presented some amazing action scenes and laid down a solid foundation for what to expect in the upcoming seasons.

The anime starts off with the main villian as Overhaul. This guy was insanely strong and the story and suspense they had created around this villian made it way more enjoyable to watch. For the first time, we get to see the Big Three really fight and to be honest, I wasn’t as impressed as I should have been. I do understand that at the end of the day these guys are just high school kids and not Pro Heros but I was expecting a lot from the Big Three and I felt that only LeMillion was able to really prove his worth. Don’t get me wrong, the other two were also quite strong it was just that their quirk didn’t seem all that interesting and the way they were fighting as well just didn’t meet my total expectations. The people who really blew my mind in this arc were Midoriya and Kirishima. Kirishima being able to really display his power this season changed my entire perspective of his character and really showerd me how much he has grown as a character. His red riot gave me goosebumps and left me at awe. Also, being able to see Midoriya fight at 100% power for an entire fight finally gave me a sense of satisfaction. Although it was with Eri’s help, it really shows you how Midoriya can fight at full power and what he is capable of after a lot of training. And that was really needed because I feel Midoriya was always looked down upon as a main character because he lacked scope for much development. However, this really gave us an insight of what to expect.

In the next segment of the anime we are introduced with a much lighter villain: the Gentle Criminal. Although he was not so powerful and his crimes were not so large scale, he really made an impact on the anime by again letting Midoriya shine more. We witness the first proper fight that Midoriya takes on alone without any external help and this fight just teaches a very large lesson to him. His name was perfectly suited for the anime because although he was a criminal he really had a very gentle demeanour. He was a tough fight for Deku only because unlike other villains, he too was determines and driven by his love for his side kick. It was great to watch Midoriya think and act on his own and show his capabilities as a growing hero.

In the final segment of the anime we get to witness the path of Endeavour. This was the best part of the whole anime where we get to see how Endeavour is trying to be a hero for the people and is finally trying to take others feelings into consideration. He is trying to do better as a dad and we even get to see a back story of his which shows how hard he worked to get to the number two spot initially. Hawk is the best support any hero can get because he brings out the best in whoever he helps. He many be young but he knows where his limits are and was always aware of how hard Endeavour was working and that’s why he is able to given his 100% trust in Endeavours abilities. MHA really proved its’ quality of education as well with the last fight between the new Nomu and Endeavour. This was a fantastic display of great action, animation, and plot because this also shows us how much the Villains Association has developed and how they are going to come back with a bang. The whole scene where people finally saw Endeavour as a successful victor in the fight and it brought hope into everyone’s eyes was truly heart warming and made the ending perfect. Of course the anime ended with the best type of suspense. Midoriya sees a dream which is completely out of context and we are left to imagine and interpret it in our own way and wait until the real story comes out.

The opening and ending songs like always were great. I can not wait for the next season. This anime has so much potential and always meets expectations in every aspect. Overall great.


I would give this season of the anime 4/5 stars.
