I was very excited for this episode! Ochaco looked so terrified to take on Bakugo and who could blame her? He was terrifying and he wasn’t going to hold back just because she’s a girl. I applaud her bravery though, stepping onto the stage despite her fear. She refused to take any advice from Izuku and wanted to just completely rely on herself. I know how scary that can be to try to do something completely on your own. It’s terrifying! I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be facing a fight against a guy as violent as Bakugo.
While Ochaco was fighting him, I was impressed with how she was trying to bait him to get a feel for how he moves and how big the explosions are. She used the debris to her advantage but he didn’t notice because he was too busy focusing on offense. One day, that’s going to bite Bakugo in the ass. Curious what he’s going to do about defense in the future. Explosions can’t stop everything. Anyway, it was pretty epic when Ochaco let the debris rain down on him like meteors. She really thought this strategy out. It was nice to see what other talents she had that she could add to her gravity quirk and her strategic thinking is definitely pretty good. I was impressed with how quick she was thinking despite all the explosions happening around her.
I really hoped she would win but Bakugo isn’t just all brawn. He’s pretty smart himself, impressively enough. Too many explosions just rattled her poor brain a little too much. Her determination was amazing. I love characters like this. I had to wipe tears when she was talking to her dad on the phone. I shed a lot of tears this episode honestly. Bakugo may have won, but I’m hoping he’ll lose a fight in the future. He needs to be humbled. I worry he’ll go evil. LOL
Now I have to wait another whole week for the next fight which I’ve also been waiting for! Todoroki vs Izuku. This is going to be hard one for me because I’m going to be rooting for both of them. I love both of the characters. If I’m going to be honest, of course I want Izuku to win. So far he’s managed to scrape by so guess we’ll have to wait and see if he’ll be able to win again!
