    If anything, I think Horikoshi showed us some of her flaws by having Bakugou sweep her team. She's cocky, she gets too ahead of herself, she thinks she can read her opponent based on past actions. Good thing this was an exercise; she can learn something from her defeat otherwise this strategy would probably get her killed by a villain, or worse. Captured.

    Try telling that to the subreddit, what with its 60 'female character rant' threads. I just think these people are more concerned with the power level and physical strength of a woman than versatility. But hey, it's shonen. What can you do?

    It could be worse, though. Horikoshi could do to someone like Miruko what Kubo did to Unohana in the final Bleach arc.

    Just because she is recommended student doesn't mean she is perfect

    Just look at Todoroki and Inasa and even Momo

    I didn't follow Bleach, I don't even know who that is, but Horikoshi is one of the most progressive mangaka out there. Mostly because he grew up with shounen and he's been a fan since forever, just like us, so he knows to handle things delicately and even in revolutionary ways many times, such as the Endeavor arc. But this only goes to show that no matter what you are served, there will always be someone to complain.

    Exactly. I'd say the moral of this arc is 'Just because you're recommended doesn't mean you'll always be entitled to victory'. I thought that Todoroki and Setsuna would win when the match-ups were announced, but I'm fine with both results.

    Honenuki was also recommended and he got rekt. That doesn't discredit him though either, Juzo is a great character and he is very competent.

    I'm not discrediting his teammates, but look at them. One's blatantly trying to hide a crush she has on him, one looks like she could easily lose focus and the other is literally surrounded by his personal Achilles' heel. If I didn't know better, I'd say they all make Aoyama and Tooru look useful. If they don't get their shit together, they will lose. When you think about it, both final teams look like a mess. Team Monoma has, Monoma, and I don't think his teammates will handle him for more than three mintues.

    Admittedly, if Aoyama and Tooru are who we think they are, they are super useful. Tooru being a traitor (it's Kaminari tbh I don't care it's true it's true IT'S TRUE) and Aoyama being an investigator to find out who the traitor actually is.

    You forgot the other question. Present Mic explains the quirks, and he had his quirk explained by Aizawa.

    For some reason, I feel like writing a musical fanfic of Boku no Hero in which everyone starts randomly breaking into song-and-dance for no reason, and they're well-aware of it.
