Last episode was a LOT of dialogue and set up for the upcoming story. It was refreshing to get some clarification on some parts of the story, but I’m wanting some action. This episode delivers on the action, but from someone very unlikely…
We start the episode with Midoriya still in the hospital recovering from his injuries. But Iida and Todoroki are nowhere to be found. Midoriya explains that Iida has gone home to his parents house to recover the rest of his injuries. And that Todoroki’s injuries were very minor so he will return to Endeavor to continue his internship. Midoriya still needed to recover though. While in bed he thought to himself, “I’m sure everyone else is working hard right now.” referring to his classmates.
We first get a look at Bakugo on patrol with Pro Hero Best Jeanist. While patrolling a couple of kids start to heckle Bakugo for being the guy who got caught by the slime monster and having to be saved (early season 1 reference). Of course Bakugo being his pleasent self retorted loudly and violently. Best Jeanist reminds him how he must handle these kind of situations. But it he didn’t really get the message. Then we get to Uraraka training with Gunhead on how to disarm someone who has a knife. She came full steam with all she had with that knife but Gunhead was able to disarm her with ease. Once she gets this kind of training Uraraka will be amazing!
We then get to Momo who was glad her instructor finally took her out to go on patrol but then they just ended up being bombarded by fans to sign autographs. Definitely not what she was hoping for. Kirashima and Tetsutetsu are just doing simple community service around the park like picking up litter. Jiro on the other hand is actually doing some real hero work with pro hero Desutegoro. She was an important asset in finding hostages in a building. And finally we get to who this episode is mostly about: Tsuyu.
She is currently working on a ship being trained like a sailor. We also meet Sirius, the captains deck hand. She reminisced with Froppy about her internship and her idea of what a hero was when she was younger and what the reality of it is were completely different. While in the midst of conversation, the captain turns the corner to see that both of his crew members are not handling their duties. But they explained to him that they have finished their duties for the day. And Captain Selkie was very pleased. Captain Selkie seems to be a very kind and generous man. His quirk is also a very useful one for being at sea. He’s a spotted seal. Has all the abilities a spotted seal would have like swimming and sonar. The captain then gets a call from the Japanese Coast Guard about some stowaways. So they set sail to check it out.
It around afternoon and the captain decides to look for the boat by himself while the crew stays on board to search with the radar. Fast forward to night time and there isn’t much luck. Until, the coast guard sends a transmission to the crew that the boat is in their designated area. Captain Selkie comes back to the boat confirming the location. The captain orders for all his crew to come with him onto the boat besides Sirius and Froppy. Froppy exclaimed she should come to get some experience for her internship, but he orders her to do as he says. He is definitely not in his usually chipper mood. Sirius consoles her telling her the captain knows what is best.
The crew board the ship to find stowaways but only see three fisherman. One normal looking man with two men that look like squids. The crew couldn’t seem to find anything until the captain insists in looking inside the holding tank where they keep all the fish. They agree to open it up but once their guard went down, the fisherman push the entire crew into the holding tank! The normal looking man then tells the two squid men that he has done what they said and that they should spare him. They just throw him in the holding tank as well.
Back on our ship, the rest of the crew is very worried where everyone is. Sirius is then picking up a sound (her quirk is that she can hear sounds that a normal person couldn’t hear.) It’s the captain telling her that they are fine and that they need to go search for the stowaways. This boat was a decoy. They eventually find the boat hiding between some rocks. Their was only one person standing guard and Froppy was able to grab her and detain her. So they are now one the small ship and Sirius can only sense one other person on the ship. But out of the cabin comes a series of giant tentacles attacking our small crew!
The giant squid villain took Sirius as hostage, grabbed her radio, and told Froppy to tell the rest of the crew they couldn’t find the stowaways if she doesn’t want to see Sirius get hurt. Froppy grabs the radio and thinks what the captain would want her to do. She does the brave thing and gives them their location! The squid villain drops Sirius and starts to attack Froppy. It was not an easy feat to catch her since she is very agile, but her eventually was able to pin her down. Right before he was able to strangle Froppy to death, Captain Selkie erupts out of the sea! The squid villain tries to blind him with some ink to the face, but thanks to his sonar he knows exactly where he is. Sirius grabs a piece of the villains leg to hold him down and the captain comes with a big flying kick to the face! Instant K.O.
They eventually tie up the stowaways and bring them to shore. They confiscated all the illegal drugs they were trying to smuggle in. While talking with the police, one of the officers asks Froppy about being in such a scary situation. Captain Selkie interrupts and tells him to not treat her like a child. She may not have her license but she is already an excellent hero. And she was very pleased to hear that.
I thought it was a great episode. A good mix of humor and action and storytelling. I especially loved Captain Selkie trying to make a really cute face for Froppy and Sirius. It was nice to go a little of course from our usual story and check up on the rest of the class. We’ll see what’s in store next episode!
See you guys!
