so this is actually my third pass, although only my second pass of the third season

Ok, so here's the thing about Mineta. He's objectively the worst part of the show, but I actually think the show takes advantage of that to draw attention away from how horny it is even when he isn't in the scene. Like there are so many of those typical fan service shots, and like it's fine? It's fine. Teens are horny. But also we really need the audience to see how shapely these girls are.

Hagakure? How would you even know this gag character was a girl if she wasn't wearing shirts with a pronounced bust.

Uraraka? She talks about how she doesn't think they got her costume right the first time she puts it on, but then she doesn't change it during the licensing arc when everyone updates their costumes, so she's stuck with the body suit and the... hoof... heel... boots? High-hoofs? No idea what they are.

Yaoyorozu is mostly played straight because she has to have exposed skin to use her quirk, but then she ends up ripping her costume and exposing herself a lot of the time anyway.

They even gave Tsu big boobs. The only girl that the show never seems to leer at is Jiro, and it explicitly calls attention to this when Mineta is trying to use the peephole and doesn't mention her.

Then there are the pro heroes, Midnight and Mount Lady, who again, their costumes and stuff make sense because of their quirks. There's even that scene where they go on a talk show to talk about sexy costumes.

None of this is to say that the show doesn't show off the guys either. There are plenty of attractive dudes. But with the exception of maybe Mirio, the camera doesn't focus on them the same way.

I have no idea where I'm going with this. It's an anime. It's a shounen anime. I find myself paying attention to it more now, though. Maybe the point is that Mineta is a symptom (but also can we please just treat this symptom, ugh).

I still really enjoy the character work of the show. I will always love my angry gay son Bakugo.

also the dub is good and there are people who don't like the dub and i just don't get it
