Boku no Hiro Akademia season 3

Noshi and me just finished the third season of this highly enjoyable superheroes anime, bringing us to the ready point for season 4 that will appear during 2019.Now, I really dig this series, it's an enjoyable, funny watch, and Bakugo is just to cool for words.In this 25 episode series, two main arcs are being played out.  During the first, the League of Villains attack the students during a lodge trip, the fall out resulting in All Might facing his nemesis, and using up the last of the One for All power in the process.  This means he now passes the mantle of Symbol of Peace to his successor, Midoriya.In the second arc, the students of UA have to face other schools in an exam to get their provisional licenses, as more heroes are required to fill the gap All Might has left.  But the League is secretly infiltrating these tests to see what the hero community is up to...As I said at the start, a truly fun series to watch, and this was a great season... though Noshi prohibited me of building a Tiger

My Hero Academia season 2

A personal favorite of Noshi, I benched the first season a while ago to have a go with her at s2, which she had already seen halfway.And while I thought the first one to be "okay", I quite liked the second one.And that second half themesong is just awesome btw...This season encompasses three big arcs in it's storyline, being at first a yearly sports tournament where the students have to overcome various hindrances, and each other.In the second arc, they are all on internship with pro-heroes, and while Midoriya learns how to control the One for All, Iida faces against Stain, the notorious hero killer.The final arc of the season takes the final exams of the class in, as the students get paired to face off against one of their teachers, being forced to overcome their weaknesses.It was as I started with a very joy to watch, and Midoriya is, to quote Noshi, "such an adorable character".Now onwards to the next season, because this stuff if surely better then the overload of Marvel and DC we have been facing the pas

They were foiled by a unified army that includes the Olympian Gods, Amazons, Atlanteans, mankind, and a Green Lantern.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

So we return to one of the funniest Marvel heroes of the MCU so far, as Ant-Man gets it's second cinematic release.I loved the first one for it's "childish" humour (the train sequence!!!) so was curious about this one.PlotScott is serving two years of house arrest following his misadventures with Cap in Germany, and his violations of the Sokovia accords.  He is forbidden to have any contact with Hank or Hope, when he suddenly gets a dream / vision about the original wasp, Janet Van Dyne.He is soon contacted by Hank and Hope as a result, as apparently it came forth from their experiments to retrieve her from the submolecular realm, which Scott was the only one to ever enter and return from.  Using a rouse, he escapes from his house and joins in a wild chase to get the quantum tunnel ready, while a criminal organisation is trying to get the hardware from the fleeing scientists for their own purposes, and an ex-partner of Hank trying to use it to cure a constantly in flux girl turned vigilante...What I

A 13 episode counting first season, I binged through this on two evenings.See, the deal is Noshi likes it, and in order to watch season 2 with her, I have to catch up and as such, I did now :-)Plot (from MAL)The appearance of "quirks," newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku's unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might's quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious
