I agree that Subaru is nothing like Kotetsu, young or old. I don't think I'd call him "pretentious" though - more just young and messed-up. He's a candidate for some serious mentorship (from Kotetsu presumably) or his career is going to spiral down pretty quickly.

I also think Mr. Black illustrates a real flaw in this buddy system, where the pairings are based more on marketing than either strategic or personal compatibility. The whole bishounen pairing makes no sense - Subaru should be partnered with an older, stable type who can (and will) bust his ass when necessary rather than another arrogant 17 year-old who has no interest in anyone other than himself.

Exactly; and unfortunately something that management likely didn't think or care about. All they want are these 2 pretty faces to lure in more impressionable fans/viewers and make money for them; the rest is unimportant.

I mean, it's practically self defense. Especially when the duo were fully intent to harm the heroes or made them into statues or worse.

It also taught Magical Cat a little bit about the reality of her occupational hazards.

I'm on episode 3 now. Ryan got some depth but at the same time he was kind of creeping with the stalker vibes, which seemed to be the current theme considering that perv from the last season was there. Worst was the fact that he used her goodwill do to it, meaning she'll actually start scanning her letters with some distrust and making it harder for kids in the future to get visits.

I'm surprised I liked Ryan as much as I did, what happened to him after the movie is sad and I'm glad that he at least trusts the Stern Build heroes and has become friends with them. Also, he caught on to the fact that Karina likes Kotetsu... I wonder when he will slip up and accidentally out her secret crush.

Yeah, Ryan has his flaws, but overall he is a good, caring guy.

Finished the first core at last. They left a pretty big cliffhanger for second half. But I wonder if some plotlines like Thomas'es sister or the whole unfinished story with Lunatic play out when. iF not, I will be pretty disappointed.

Got to the fourth episode now. We know that Sky High takes everything seriously, but it was kind of adorable how insecure he mentioned being at the end and hiding his own flaws to appear perfect for Fire Emblem.

And it is painful watching Barnaby going home to his plants. Between Ryan and his iguana and Sky High's dogs, they feel so lonely outside of work.

Was that new character introduced in the last few episodes voiced by Takehito Koyasu? His laugh sounded familiar .

Why is Ouroboros out to discredit NEXT? I feel like the discrimination against NEXT's was more present in this season compared to season 1. Is it because they're trying to undermine the heroes because they keep getting in their way ?

I was always hoping Kaede would want to go into the family business like her dad so I'm glad they started addressing that. Although considering how her powers work, the only way I could see her being useful is if she was in a squad with other Heroes, but even that might not last long because she apparently can't recopy a power from the same NEXT. Maybe she just needs to learn how to properly utilize her powers or have them grow as she matures more ?

I'm not surprised Kotetsu isn't 100% in favor of her becoming a hero even when he respects her desire to be one because he knows how dangerous the life is. I was also wondering if Tomoe would've wanted Kaede to follow in Kotetsu' footsteps (although I feel like she might've) .

Oh yeah, and Precious Eve did refer to Christmas in the end .

It it kind of surprising they took probably their most overtly sexy adult female character and had her put on some pounds .

They didn't really feature much KotetsuxKarina time this season outside that one episode, and for a second I thought they might be shifting her feelings to Ryan, but just look at the way she glows up whenever she talks to Kotetsu !

Also, college-age Karina has such a strong and mature glow about her. And she was so awesome fighting Fugan and Mugan out-of-costume .

But yeah, I wasn't really expecting Ryan back so soon after the movie or to officially join the main cast, but he and Blue Rose worked surprisingly well together and I like how their partnership grew .

I definitely feel like they can't properly resolve Thomas' character arc until they addressed what happened to his sister. I was actually kind of surprised that it didn't seem like he'd been looking for her, but maybe the emotional wound of their separation and why just made it too hard.

But unless she's not in Sternbild anymore or is completely out of the loop on the Hero news I can't imagine she doesn't know that HIT is her brother when his name is literally in his codename and he has the same powers. I know Thomas said the execs came up with the name but I thought for a second he was using it so his sister would realize it's him. Or maybe she's completely forgotten about him?

It felt like they were building up to Yuri becoming Lunatic again all season only for him to not have to. I guess that's probably something they'll save for the second half. But I'll just savor all the Kotetsu and Yuri scenes we get this season .

Yes, yes she was. I liked how that even though the characters have a brief moment where it get's mentioned, Agnes herself never laments over her weight gain or changes how she behaves, nor did they have the voice actress do a "fat voice". I really f'ing hate when they do that.

I love the utter shocked reaction from the silent prof. the moment he realized that chubby Agnes is, well, Agnes .

It was such an understated comedy yet hilarious as hell .
