The first arc of My Hero Academia’s 4th Season has concluded, which means analysis!  The Overhaul Arc looks closely at the attempted rise of the yakuza leader, Kai Chisaki, as he attempts to change the framework of society in a way that nobody has attempted to do before in an age of heroes.  In this episode, I will be looking closely at Chisaki / Overhaul’s philosophy, the role indeterminism has in this section of the narrative, how Tomura has become a more nuanced antagonist in this arc and more.  On the side, I talk about my experiences with the donghua, To Be Hero (2016) and my urge to watch the new donghua, The Daily Life of the Immortal King (2020).
