My Hero Academia Episode 106 Review – Episode 107 Preview

Sometimes it takes an emergency to get people to get over their feelings for each other. In My Hero Academia episode 106, Natsuo’s life is put in danger by a crazed villain with a death wish. It appears that this might be the catalyst for the reconciliation of the Todoroki family.

Where can I watch My Hero Academia episode 106?

I’m a little disappointed right now. I’ve been watching MHA over at Crunchyroll ever since I discovered it a while ago. For some reason, there have been some login issues at Crunchyroll that have kept me from watching MHA right when it airs. This time, the issues were enough to get me to go look somewhere else.

With My Hero Academia being as popular as it is, there’s no shortage of other sites that carry the anime. Not only do they carry it, but they also air the new episodes when they debut. I’m going to guess that it costs a lot more to do that than to have the streaming right for old seasons. I take the multitude of streaming sites as a sign of just how much MHA has caught on with audiences around the world.

That being said, I went over to Hulu to watch My Hero Academia episode 106. This isn’t ideal, since there are still commercials for those of us with the standard membership, but it’s better than nothing. You can also go over to Funimation to watch this anime episode. The only reason I didn’t is because I don’t have a subscription yet. It’s coming, but I’m trying to hold off as long as possible.

Those are three large streaming services, are there any other sites I can watch MHA episode 106 at?

You can always try your luck at watching anime at an illegal, pirated site. I recommend you stay away from that as you have no idea what type of virus you’re downloading onto your device. Don’t compromise your security just to watch an anime episode. If you just want to watch this episode for free, just wait a week until Crunchyroll puts it up for free with commercials.

There is at least one site that gets it’s content courtesy of Crunchyroll. That’s VRV. If you’ve got a subscription there you can watch the new episode of My Hero Academia. Personally, I can’t think of a reason why I’d subscribe there when I’ve already got a Crunchyroll subscription. It’s an option though, so you’re free to check it out if you want to.

What did you think of the story in My Hero Academia episode 106?

If I was to summarize MHA episode 106 into a sentence it would be “Not complicated but good.” A villain obsessed with Endeavor shows up, kidnaps Natsuo, wants Endeavor to kill him and a fight ensues. That’s basically the story here but it works.

Of course there’s a lot more going on underneath all of this. Natsuo’s kidnapping by Ending, the villain, is just another part in the Todoroki family drama. The way in which it’s presented in My Hero Academia episode 106 makes you think that this might be the event that starts a larger reconciliation. Natsuo and Endeavor appear to have taken the first step in that direction.

That story is what actually helps prop up a fairly standard anime episode. Think about it for a moment. An obsessed villain shows up, takes a hostage, threatens society at large and gets taken down by several of the main characters. Stop me if you’ve heard that story before. Episode 106 could’ve been pretty boring had it not been for the deeper story going on.

That’s great and all, but what about the action? How was that?

Izuku Midoriya using Blackwhip

Midoriya, Bakugo and Todoroki all showed off in MHA episode 106. For each boy, Endeavor’s advice played in the background as they finally surpassed their limits (sorry, wrong anime) went Plus Ultra and saved the day. I guess you can say they really didn’t go Plus Ultra, but they did progress to the next level.

My Hero Academia episode 106 presented the three U.A. High School first years as having taken another step on their path to becoming professional heroes. In keeping with the theme of the Todoroki family progress, it wasn’t a big step, but it was still a positive development.

What did My Hero Academia episode 106 get right?

It was a lot of fun to watch Midoriya, Bakugo and Todoroki defeat Ending. Bakugo may not like it, but the three boys work well together as a team. With each of them mastering another skill set, they just become that much more fun to watch. I never really get tired of watching all of the different quirks in action, episode 106 is no exception.

The most exciting of these development in my eyes is Midoriya’s use of Blackwhip. He managed to control multiple cars with it. Not too bad for a quirk that was rampaging out of control not that long ago. When you add Blackwhip to super-strength, Midoriya is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. We won’t even get into the fact that he was floating in the air during all of this either.

Was there anything besides action that was good in MHA 106?

My Hero Academia Episode 106 - Natsuo

Another highlight was Endeavor and Natsuo at the end of the episode. Family issues aren’t easy to get over. In this case, there’s years of built up resentment and blame. You can’t erase the past but you can work to make the future better. Getting past all of the pain that someone caused you is not an easy thing to do.

You could see in Natsuo’s face that he wants to have a father he can look up to. The desire is there, he just can’t bring himself to say the words that will lead to reconciliation. I found myself saying, “Just say it Natsuo! Just tell your father you want to work on your relationship!” If I can sense it, I’m sure others can as well.

What did My Hero Academia episode 106 get wrong?

While I won’t say that this is the best My Hero Academia episode out there, I still can’t think of anything particularly wrong with the episode. I think episode 106 did what it set out to do, and that was to progress the story just a little bit. I couldn’t pick out any glaring issues with the story, animation, music or anything else.

Is My Hero Academia episode 106 worth watching?

Yes. MHA episode 106 is worth watching. Every Saturday I wake up at 5 AM just so I’m awake and ready for the new episode of My Hero Academia when it comes out at 5:30 AM EST. You might think that’s a little crazy, but I also have a dog that likes to wake me up at 5:00 AM anyway. After taking the dog out and getting breakfast, I’m typically waiting with anticipation for the new MHA episode.

I’ll sit at my computer and hit refresh over and over once it gets to be 5:29 AM or so. If the new episode is not up right away, or there’s an issue with Crunchyroll’s service, I’ll start to go searching for answers. That’s the mindset that I’m in every Saturday morning.

For some anime, that leads to disappointment. For My Hero Academia episode 106, I was happy with what was presented to us this week. While not the most memorable episode, we still got to see some quality anime. Now I’ll just have to wait a week to see if they can do it again. Speaking of that…

My Hero Academia Episode 107 Preview

After watching the preview for MHA episode 107, I can’t help but get more excited for next week. Present Mic and Eraser Head go to talk to Kurogiri. You remember him, he’s the villain who’s quirk allowed him to warp himself and others. He was central to the events at the USJ as well as Bakugo’s abduction.

It’s teased that there will be a big revelation in My Hero Academia episode 107. All I can say about it is that it will be something you don’t want to miss. I’ve read the manga so I know what’s coming, but that still doesn’t lessen my anticipation. Actually, I think it only makes me more excited for next week. Episode 107 should be a highly charged, emotional episode. I can’t wait!

Now go watch some anime!
