Hands off the Best Girl!
Episode 19 of Season 2 (or Episode 32 as a whole) of Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia) is the anime-original that follows the other Class 1-A students for their internships. Unlike Todoroki, Izuku, and Iida, they’re not as action-packed (with one or two exceptions), but its still good for grasping the hero society as it stands.
Best Jeanist takes Bakugo on a patrol. He tries to get through to Bakugo that the purpose of a patrol isn’t just to deter criminals, but to give the public peace of mind and let them know who you are to build trust. Of course, then some kids mocked him for the Slime monster incident and he goes off on them.
On the softer-side, Uraraka’s still undergoing her training with Gunhead and he shows her how to deal with someone coming at you with a knife. That’ll be useful for her, whereas Itsuka and Momo are basically watching their mentor give autographs, and Tetsutetsu and Kirishima are doing community service. Sucks for them.
In contrast to them, Kyoka is working with Death Arms to help the hostages escape and Tsuyu is dealing with smugglers. The smugglers manage to get the drop on her mentor, leaving her to deal with a villain who takes her new friend, Sirius, hostage and gives her orders to lie to Captain Selkie about their whereabouts. She doesn’t and warns the Captain where they are, so he tries to kill her (see picture above).
Captain Selkie appears just in time to beat the living crap out of the guy and best girl Tsuyu closes out the episode understanding the job of a hero a little better.
So the episode really only covered a handful of Class 1-A before focusing on Tsuyu’s adventures as a hero. I think it comes as no surprise, given she is Best Girl after all. I also love how Tsuyu found Captain Selkie’s face to be cute despite him being so rugged. It was basically filler, but I liked it.
Still, there are a ton of revelations waiting for us next episode and that’s what everyone is looking for. So, see you then.
