My Hero Academia: Season 2, Episode 7: Victory or Defeat [Re-Watch]


It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made one of these and I decided to watch an episode or two today and found myself wanting to get my thoughts out of my head and out into the open. What better way to do that than to just post it on my blog, right?


Thoughts on the episodeWell… I must be honest and admit that I genuinely forgot how short the match is between Deku and Shinso. I mean, it’s barely half of an episode! Why do I remember it being longer? Well… LOL, I guess it wasn’t as short as Todoroki and Sero’s. I think Todoroki really held back against him, don’t you think? He barely used any of his ice powers.


Favorite MomentOh, hands-down when Shinso’s classmates start calling out to him and telling him how amazing they think he is and what a wonderful job they all think he did against Deku. Talk about a tear-jerking scene. Now those are true friends. The soundtrack that played as they all smiled at him from above as the surrounding heroes were complimenting him was just the cherry on top.

Actually, I also loved the scene where Deku is explaining to All Might about the vision he had while he was brainwashed. He tells him that he saw 8-9 people and one of them had eyes like him and he thought it was probably the people who had inherited One For All… and then he looks at him and All Might is trembling as he says, “Scary… What the heck?” and then Deku freaks out with, “What? I thought you’d know about it!” That gave me a good laugh.


Anything you didnt likePossibly how little spotlight Shinso gets. He seems like a great character with a lot of potential. His quirk is amazing, as well. I guess I just wish he would’ve trained his body more to prepare for this type of situation. I mean, he’s well-aware that his quirk isn’t a fighting one, so why does he not train his body to be able to physically stand his ground, too? He would’ve been one hell of an opponent like that.


Any additional thoughtsI’m just excited to get back into this show. You know that feeling you get after finishing a show/series that you flew through because you loved it so much and then you realize there’s nothing more until a new season comes out or you read the manga? Yeah, that’s what I’m going through right now after having binged through the last series I was super engrossed in, lol. So, hopefully, this re-watch helps me get over that!

Onwards to the next!




I’m a 27-year-old story-telling fan. I enjoy all forms of media, including anime, manga, literature, films, video games, music, and everything else in between. I’ve been writing short stories and novels for myself as a hobby for as long as I can remember. I’ve never considered myself good enough to become published, but I’m hoping to change that someday. I’m a huge sucker for characters, so that’s usually what will make or break a majority of stories for me. Other than that, I spend my days working and trying to pay my bills (how fun, right?).
