My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 144 Review

The Plan to Trick All-for-One

There’s a lot of time-wasting exposition in My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 144. For example, before getting to All Might’s plan, we have to listen to him hype it up again for a few minutes. And the same thing happens with Eraserhead’s plan, too.

I won’t say My Hero Academia is at Tensura levels of nothing happening. But it’s been going in that direction. I guess it’s more like One Piece, at this point. And that’s kind of an issue because One Piece airs year-round. MHA is a seasonal anime, so it shouldn’t have to stall out the run time.

Okay, so what’s the plan to trick All-for-One? The first stage of the plan relies on Shinsou’s quirk that lets him control other people. Before, he could only control their actions, not their thoughts and words. But after training, he doesn’t have that drawback.

When Aoyama is on the phone with All-for-One, Shinsou is controlling him. Somehow, this makes Aoyama’s words neither come from himself nor Shinsou. So, All-for-One’s lie detector doesn’t work. That doesn’t really make sense, at least to me. But, sure. I guess that’s fine. Horikoshi kind of wrote himself into a corner with that one.

The second stage of the plan relies on Monoma’s quirk that lets him copy other quirks. This is how the heroes are able to use Kurogiri’s portal quirl. They simply have Monoma copy it. By using this quirk, the heroes can send their forces to the battlefield and also split up the villains’ forces.

Later in the episode, Monoma also copies Eraserhead’s quirk to help fight against Shigaraki. Eraserhead can still use his quirk. But with only one eye, it’s not as effective as it once was. This is why the heroes need to rely on Monoma.

Divide and Conquer

Let’s talk about the part of the most important part of the plan: Dividing and conquering the villains. There’s pretty much no way the heroes would win if it was an all-out war. The combination of All-for-One and Shigaraki in one place would be too much to overcome.

So, that’s why the heroes need to split the villain’s forces up. And, in doing so, they split their own forces up so that they have an advantage. At least, that appears to be the case. If a hero has a quirk that’s effective against a villain’s quirk, that hero will be on the team fighting that villain.

Some of the notable matchups include Endeavor vs. All-for-One, Shouto vs. Dabi, and Deku vs. Shigaraki. Though, it’s not as if those heroes are alone. Endeavor has the help of other pro heroes, like Hawks. Shouto has other people with him, though I forget who. And Deku has the likes of Bakugo, Best Jeanist, and Mirko.

Unfortunately for the heroes, their plan doesn’t exactly work. It almost works. But the one thing they didn’t account for is Himiko Toga’s crazy obsession. As the villains and heroes are being funneled into various portals, Himiko lassos Deko and drags him in with her.

Once the groups of heroes and villains are divided up, it quickly becomes apparent that Deku isn’t where he’s supposed to be. He went through the girls’ portal — you know because Uraraka and Tsu are always paired up against Himiko.

That’s kind of a big deal. It means that he’s not fighting against Shigaraki. And if Deku’s not fighting against Shigaraki, do the other heroes fighting him even stand a chance? Probably not. So, my prediction is Deku will use his Gearshift and Float quirks to traverse Japan in an instant.

There Are No Side Characters Here

Most episodes of MHA don’t have quotes that stand out. However, Episode 144 had one. When the pro heroes are trying to convince Monoma to help them with his quirk, Monoma says he always felt like a side character. His quirk isn’t a main character quirk.

And in response to this, Vlad King says, “There are no side characters here.” What he means is that everyone has an important role to play. Even if someone’s quirk doesn’t seem that impressive, it allows them to do something only they can do.

This could have been a cool quote. It’s definitely memorable. But there are some problems I have with it. And the first is that there definitely are side characters here. No matter what they tell Monoma, he is and always will be a side character. Even Vlad King, the one who says the quote, is a side character.

The second problem with this quote is that it feels like it’s trying to copy Vinland Saga. If you’ve seen or read Vinland Saga, I think you’ll know what line I’m referring to. It’s Thorfinn’s iconic line, “I don’t have any enemies.”

Obviously, the meanings of Thorfinn’s and Vlad King’s lines are different. But they were delivered in the same way and serve the same purpose. These are lines meant to inspire and change the way we (the viewers/readers and the characters) think about the world.

I’m sure there’s going to be one person who’s thinking, “But that Vinland Saga episode only came out last year! Horikoshi wrote the chapters this episode adapted back in 2022!” You’re right. But the manga chapter in which Thorfinn said that iconic line came out in 2013. I find it very unlikely Horikoshi wasn’t inspired by that.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 144? Do you like how Shinsou was able to use his quirk to trick All-for-One? How do you think Deku is going to get to the battlefield he’s supposed to be at? And what did you think of Vlad King’s line about there being no side characters?

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 143 Review

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 143 Review

Himiko and Spinner Still Have a Chance

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 143 was a set-up episode. Nothing really happened in this episode. But, it set up future developments. Some of those developments seem like they’re going to come to fruition next week. And some may not happen for years.

So, the stuff that I don’t see happening any time soon has to do with Himiko and Spinner. I’ve been saying for a very long time that Himiko’s going to change sides. She has good in her. She just needs someone (Urarako) to save her.

I might have been saying this since Himiko was first introduced. It just makes sense for her character to eventually help the heroes fight against All-for-One. And, I don’t know if I’ve said this about Spinner before, but the same is true for his character.

Himiko with a vial of Twice’s blood

At the start of Episode 143, we see how both of these characters are still holding on to the good within them. Himiko went back to her childhood home and was reminiscing about the past. I don’t think she wanted to be a villain. However, the villains were the ones who accepted her.

When she was younger, people around her were afraid of her quirk. And we see the same thing with Spinner. He feels like society treats him as a second-class citizen because he’s a heteromorph. So, it’s not that he wanted to be a villain — they were the ones to accept him.

Something I’ve definitely said before is that these two are loyal to Shigaraki. They’re not loyal to All-for-One. That’s why I see them swapping sides. Deku wants to save Shigaraki from his fate. And once Himiko and Spinner see what All-for-One is doing to Shigaraki, they’ll work with Deku to save him.

Imagine Being an Uraraka Fan

The Uraraka content in this episode reminded me of something. Kouhei Horikoshi really hates writing good female characters. Seriously, name one from this series. It’s certainly not Uraraka. And, I mean, look at what he did with Star and Stripe. She could have been such a cool and interesting character.

Now, this is a complaint many have made against a lot of the big shounen mangaka. Kishimoto, the mangaka of Naruto, is another one who comes to mind. I like Sakura, but yeah, I get it. Compared to Naruto and Sasuke, she takes a backseat.

Horikoshi’s even worse about this, though. With Naruto, people didn’t think Kishimoto could write female characters well. With My Hero Academia, Horikoshi doesn’t even try. I remember how Season 1 kind of introduced Uraraka as the female lead of the series alongside Deku and Bakugo. But, that didn’t last long. Todoroki replaced her almost immediately.

I guess you could argue that Uraraka’s gotten a better deal than, say, Nobara in Jujutsu Kaisen. But has she really? Obviously, Jujutsu Kaisen is another shounen series guilty of shafting female characters. However, I think what Gege did in that series is better than how Uraraka faded into the background here.

I can’t imagine being an Uraraka fan at this point. Do they still exist? I get that I’m a Rock Lock fan, and he has like 5 minutes of screen time in the whole series. But at least he does stuff when he’s on screen.

Okay, but what about other female characters besides Uraraka? People like Froppy, Mina, and Tooru. There’s also Mt. Lady and Midnight. Though, didn’t Midnight die last season? Well, anyway, those characters are all fine, at best. I’d say the only female character with real potential in this series is Himiko.

The Final Plan for the Second Decisive Battle

It pained me when All Might mentioned “the final plan for the second decisive battle” in this episode. Why? Because I know that the manga is still ongoing and is far ahead of the anime. So, this isn’t going to be anywhere near the final battle of the series.

If this is the second decisive battle, how many more decisive battles are we going to have before it’s over? And how many plans are each of those battles going to involve? I just want the series to wrap up at this point.

The good news is that it looks like the next episode should have some decent action. I didn’t watch the preview because I want it to be a surprise. So, I’m really hoping that the preview didn’t reveal that we’re not going to get the big fight next week.

All-for-One from the anime series My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 143
All-for-One

Okay, so how did this final plan for the second decisive battle work? I don’t know, and neither does All-for-One. I don’t know how the heroes managed to trick All-for-One. Whose quirk lets them prevent All-for-One from finding out Aoyama was lying to him? Or, whose quirk turns Aoyama’s lies into truths? I have no idea.

Also, All-for-One was confused about how the heroes were able to use Kurogiri’s portal quirk. But I’m pretty sure we learned about that in one of the previous seasons. I don’t remember the details. However, I’m pretty sure that’s not supposed to be a mystery to the viewer.

Unfortunately, since I know this season isn’t going to be the end of the series, the fights don’t matter much to me. Like, I know this fight isn’t going to solve anything. Maybe a single hero or villain will get defeated. But in the grand scheme of things, will that even matter?

Final Thoughts

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 143? Do you agree with my theory that Himiko and Spinner will change sides? Are you still an Uraraka fan, if you ever were to begin with? And are you looking forward to the fight that I assume is going to happen next week?

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 142 Review

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 142 Review

Inventing Is Hero Work

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 142 was definitely one of the episodes of all time. Not very much happened in it, which checks out based on what I know about the manga. In case you didn’t know, the manga is still ongoing.

This episode covered parts of Chapters 338-340, and it feels like we’re close to the series ending. But, the latest manga chapter is 423, and it’s still going. I don’t know what’s been happening for the past 80 chapters, but it can’t be much. So, I’m expecting a lot of slow episodes this season.

Something I liked about this episode, though, was that we got to see Mei Hatsume again. Obviously, part of why I like Hatsume is that she’s cute. But, I also think she’s a more interesting character than the majority of the hero students. I wish she and the other support students played a bigger role.

Mei Hatsume

Now, I’m not exactly confident that Horikoshi could write those characters very well. But, from the little we’ve seen of Hatsume throughout the series, I like her. Of course, that could only be because she’s different than the hero students I hate.

How could Hatsume play a larger role? She’s developed parts of Deku’s hero suit. And now, she’s working on the U.A. defense system. But, what if she played a more active role in trying to take down Shigaraki and All-for-One? Is there some device she could create that would be effective against those two?

Technology for removing quirks already exists, though I don’t see the heroes relying on it. And, I think there’s also already technology that suppresses quirks. But, could Hatsume come up with devices that counter specific quirks? Like, maybe some way of jamming the Search quirk stolen from Ragdoll.

Who Can Be Trusted?

The heroes have a master plan to defeat the villains, which I’ll discuss in the next section. But first, who can be trusted with the details of this plan? It turns out, not very many people. And that makes sense. What might seem to make less sense is who those people are.

Of course, the students of Class 1-A know the plan. Then, there are a few pro heroes, like Endeavor, Hawks, and Jeanist. There are some members of the police force. And, there are the pilots who served alongside Star and Stripe.

Oh, and there’s Ragdoll.

This is kind of a weird assortment of people. So, let’s go over why they’re the ones trusted with this information.

Obviously, the Class 1-A students are here because they’re the main characters. That’s the main reason. Most of them don’t actually need to know about this plan. Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki are the ones who do.

The Wild, Wild Pussycats from the anime series My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 142
The Wild, Wild Pussycats

The top heroes being in on the plan makes a lot of sense. As with the main trio of students, they’re going to be doing a large part of the fighting. But, what about all the other pro heroes?

Most pro heroes aren’t being told about this plan because it’s harder for a larger group to keep a secret. For example, Fat Gum isn’t going to betray the heroes. But, what if he’s caught by a villain who can extract information from him?

Then, we have the police, pilots, and Ragdoll. The police are in on the plan because they’re technically in charge. They’re the ones who are going to arrest the villains, not the heroes. Star and Stripe’s pilots are there kind of just because. And, Ragdoll is there because she no longer has a quirk. She’s not a target.

The Heroes’ Master Plan

So what is this master plan that the heroes came up with? We don’t know the full extent, as we didn’t get to hear what Aizawa said. But, we got to hear part of the plan from All Might.

This genius plan is to separate the villains so they can’t work together. Like, that’s the extent of the plan that All Might lays out. Maybe I should be a pro hero because I could have told them to do that. Of course, it’s going to be easier to defeat the villains independently.

Aizawa’s part of the plan has something to do with using Aoyama. We know that much. But, when All Might explains his part of the plan, he doesn’t have anything more than that. He asks the others in attendance for ideas on how to accomplish this.

I guess All Might is more of a “big picture” kind of guy. But, seriously, they’re going to need a real plan. It doesn’t seem like it’s going to be very easy to split the villains up. The only one I could see being easy to lure out is Dabi by using Endeavor as bait.

Then, even if you do separate all of the villains, you still need to defeat them. That’s easier said than done, as most of the All-for-One’s crew is stronger than the majority of heroes. Didn’t Endeavor already fail to beat Dabi? And, do you actually think most of the students stand a chance?

Oh, and let’s not forget that All Might was talking about both All-for-One and Shigaraki fighting back. Until now, it’s pretty much only been one or the other. If we assume Deku is going to fight Shigaraki, who else could fight All-for-One?

Final Thoughts

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 142? Do you want to see more of the support students? What role do you think Ragdoll is going to play going forward? And, how do you think the heroes are going to separate the villains?

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141 Review

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141 Review

Villain: The U.A. Traitor Revealed

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141 finally reveals who the traitor within U.A. is. And, I honestly don’t care. It’s been a very long time since the idea that there was a traitor first came up. I want to say that was back in Season 1 or 2.

Alright, so let’s get right into it. The traitor is none other than Yuuga Aoyama, whom I previously predicted would be the traitor. Way back in my review of Episode 80, I wrote about how it looked like Yuuga would be revealed as the traitor.

That didn’t end up happening back then. But, now it makes sense why I thought that. It was clearly foreshadowing the reveal we got in Episode 141. And, something I like about this reveal is that it makes Yuuga’s character make a bit more sense.

I might not care about the traitor reveal itself. But, I do care about how this reveal improved Yuuga’s character. I still don’t like him. However, the way he acts and some of the other details about him make more sense with the context we now have.

For example, there’s the fact that using his quirk gives Yuuga a stomach ache. I always thought this meant he was some sickly kid who wasn’t strong enough to manage his own quirk. But, we now know that’s not the case. His quirk gives him a stomach ache because his body is rejecting the quirk.

Yuuga was born quirkless, like Deku, but received a quirk from All-for-One. It turns out that this quirk wasn’t a good match for Yuuga’s body, which is why it makes him sick. That little detail adds so much. And, this also explains why Yuuga has always been eager to prove himself.

Some Heroes Aren’t Meant for Combat

Was Episode 141 the first time we’ve seen what Tooru Hagakure looks like? I’m pretty sure it’s not and that we saw her in a previous season. But, I’ve also seen a lot of fan art of her over the years.

So, it’s very possible that this is the first time we’ve seen her but I already knew what she looked like because of the fan art. Let me know if we’ve seen her before down in the comments. I really don’t remember.

Anyway, the reason we saw her in this episode was due to her reflecting Yuuga’s attack. It looked to me like she used her hands to reflect it. But, I guess the part of her body that she uses doesn’t matter. As long as she reflects something like a laser, she’s going to become visible — at least partially.

Tooru Hagakure becoming partially visible from the anime series My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141
Tooru Hagakure becoming partially visible

Of course, there’s something else I was thinking of when Tooru became visible. Isn’t she naked? Like, we can see her gloves and boots, but nothing else. That implies she’s naked other than those items, right? This is another thing I don’t quite remember. Did she get a suit in a previous season that turns invisible with her body?

Now, the last thing I was thinking of in regards to Tooru in this episode is that she shouldn’t be a combatant. All of the U.A. Class 1-A students are being trained for combat. However, not all of their quirks are suited for that.

In particular, Tooru, Kyouka, Kouji, and Mezou all have quirks optimal for spying and information gathering. We’ve even seen some of them use their quirks for this. So, why is there a focus on them also training for combat? They should be doing specialized training.

The Double Agent

Now, back to Yuuga. Despite being the traitor, it was pretty obvious that he was never going to be a true villain. Yuuga never wanted to work for All-for-One. So, Deku and the others were always going to try to save him, despite what he’s done.

And, that led to the suggestion that Yuuga become a double agent for the heroes. If he can keep All-for-One from figuring out that he’s been compromised, he could change the tide of the upcoming battle. He might be able to help the heroes track down All-for-One.

This is where we’re getting into the stuff I don’t really care about. The other students wanting to save Yuuga no matter what makes sense for their characters. But, I can’t say it’s a very interesting development. It’s just about the most predictable thing possible and I’m not invested in it, at all.

Yuuga Aoyama captured from the anime series My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141

On top of that, there’s the whole double agent thing. That could be interesting if it involved a better character than Yuuga. At the start of the episode, the implication was that Tooru was the traitor. That would have made what’s going to happen next way more interesting.

As I mentioned, Tooru’s quirk is way better for infiltration and information gathering. What’s Yuuga going to do? Nothing that any other random person couldn’t do. The fact that he’s the double agent doesn’t add anything to the series. I’m sure it will result in him getting his “hero moment.” But, that’s it.

One thing I’m not sure about is how this whole ordeal will end. Will All-for-One see this betrayal coming? Will Yuuga make it out alive? I don’t know. But, I’d like to see him sacrifice himself to save the others. A good death can do a lot for a character.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 141? Did you accurately predict that Yuuga Aoyama would be the traitor? Do you remember if we’ve seen what Tooru Hagakure looks like before? And, do you think All-for-One will see Yuuga’s betrayal coming?

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 140 Review

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 140 Review

Star and Stripe Is a Weak Woman

My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 140 is another episode dedicated to Star and Stripe. She may be America’s #1 hero, but she’s still a woman, which is why she’ll never be on All Might’s level. At least, that’s what someone told her.

Is that really the case? Of course not. The reason Star and Stripe will never be on All Might’s level is that she doesn’t have One-for-All. If she was All Might’s successor, she’d absolutely be on his level. In fact, due to how that quirk works, she’d be even stronger than him.

Every quirk has its strengths and weaknesses. Powering its user up physically isn’t where New Order’s strength lies. Its strength is its versatility. Star and Stripe can pretty much do whatever she wants with the quirk. I mean, Who else can catch both lasers and ICBMs? I doubt All Might could.

Luckily for Star and Stripe, she has a good team of pilots backing her up. If there’s anything she can’t do on her own, she can rely on them to help. Sure, that didn’t work out for her in this instance. But, she was also up against the strongest villain in history.

At this point in time, nobody else could do what Star and Stripe did. All Might’s passed his prime. Deku isn’t on the level of peak All Might yet. And, there’s no other hero in the world who stood a better chance against Shigaraki than Star and Stripe.

How do we know that’s the case? Well, after Star and Stripe’s defeat, no other country wanted to send their heroes to fight Shigaraki. They all understood that if she couldn’t beat him, they can’t. And, as for Japanese heroes, Endeavor’s #1 and he can’t beat Shigaraki, either.

Well, She Didn’t Last Long

Okay, so we need to talk about how Star and Stripe was used in the series. She only lasted two episodes, and that was very disappointing. I wanted to see her do more damage and stick around longer.

Imagine if Shigaraki didn’t kill her during this fight. She could have gone to U.A. and helped the students train. Under the guidance of both her and All Might, they could have reached the next level. That would have been a pretty cool way to use her. But, that’s not what happened.

Instead, Star and Stripe’s role was to show how powerful Shigaraki has become. She was the strongest hero in the world and Shigaraki defeated her. The point of that is to illustrate that Shigaraki is someone the U.A. students can’t handle yet. But, did Star and Stripe need to die for that?

Star and Stripe disintegrating

Yes, it was cool seeing her pin Shigaraki in place with lasers and then smash him with a nuke. But, she could have been so much cooler. Think about if her command for herself not to disintegrate worked. That would have been the coldest thing anyone’s done in the series.

There are a lot of ways she could have still “lost” the fight without dying. Not taking out Shigaraki and then him escaping could have been considered a lot. Or, even if Shigaraki stole her quirk, but she survived, that still would have been a loss.

I just feel like this was a waste of a good character. But, I guess there is one problem with Star and Stripe surviving after having her quirk stolen. Couldn’t Eri simply reverse that like she did when Mirio’s quirk was erased? I wouldn’t want something like that to happen.

What Happened to New Order?

There’s one thing from this episode that I’m not quite sure I understand. What happened to New Order? From my understanding, it was going to continue rampaging within Shigaraki until he got rid of it. I mean, that’s what Shigaraki himself believed was the case.

When Shigaraki went to implant New Order into someone else, “Star and Stripe” told him that wouldn’t work. I thought she was saying that even if he gave someone else the quirk, it would still fight him. Like, whoever has New Order would rampage and destroy other quirks.

And, I assumed that this would be bad for Shigaraki because of how many quirks he has. New Order wouldn’t go after any and all quirks — at least not at first. Since Shigaraki has so many quirks in one body, he’d be target #1 for New Order.

New Order rampaging within Shigaraki

That doesn’t seem to be what was meant, though. Shigaraki didn’t end up passing New Order onto anyone else. Instead, New Order seems to have disappeared on its own.

Now, I said I didn’t quite understand. But, after rewatching this scene, I might get what happened now. So, let me explain, and you can tell me if you agree.

New Order’s command to “oppose other quirks” applies to itself, as well. I didn’t initially think that was the case due to the use of the word “other” there. But, I’m pretty sure that’s what happened. New Order didn’t only destroy a bunch of Shigaraki’s quirks. It destroyed itself too.

Why would this be the case? Why wouldn’t Star and Stripe want New Order to keep fighting until it destroyed all of Shigaraki’s quirks? There’s a possibility that Shigaraki could overpower it. The most important thing was to prevent Shigaraki from getting New Order.

Final Thoughts

What do you think of My Hero Academia Season 7 Episode 140? Do you think Star and Stripe’s gender has anything to do with her not being able to surpass All Might? Would you have preferred if she survived this fight? And, what do you think happened to New Order?
