3 Days 3 Quotes Tag (Day 1)

Recently, I was tagged by Yomu in the 3 Days 3 Quotes Tag. This is day one, so expect another inspiring quote tomorrow and then one the day after. After that, you’re on your own!

Here are the links to Yomu’s quotes: Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3. I’ve got to say, I’m a big fan of Day 3’s quote and can relate to that.

As with all tag posts, there are rules.

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post three quotes on three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers to do the same.

Sounds easy enough. So, thanks Yomu for the nomination and recognizing that I would love the chance to write up three more posts. Now, let’s get on with the first quote.

“There is nothing crueller than letting a dream end midway.”

Shouta Aizawa said this in My Hero Academia. He comes across as a hardened and pessimistic teacher, however, he’s proven time and again that he’ll inspire and defend his students no matter what they’re up against.

I think that this is such a great quote as it works on two levels. Firstly, it’s saying that you shouldn’t give up on your dream. Don’t let it end before you’ve accomplished what you set out to do. Secondly, it can mean that you shouldn’t trample on other’s dreams. If anything you should encourage and inspire them to keep fighting.

This series has so many inspiring moments that I could have probably picked all three of my quotes from it, but don’t worry, I didn’t.

Nomination

So, I’m going to do things the same way Yomu did by nominating one blogger a day. Let’s keep the inspiring anime quotes coming. Alternatively, if you have a dark anime quote, I’m all for that too.

With my first nomination, I choose… Amelia at A Girl & Her Anime as another thank you for the Real Neat Award nomination. There is no pressure.

The next quote is coming tomorrow, same place, same time. See you then!

My Hero Academia – Season Three

At the end of season two, the members of Class 1A were desperately trying to pass their exams so that they could attend the summer training camp. It was another logical deception from Aizawa Sensei, as they all get to go. Not long after settling in, they are attacked by a group of villains.

They survived the attack, but not everything went well. Bakugo was kidnapped by the League of Villains with the aim to turn him to their side. Midoriya leads a small group of classmates to attempt to save him. Meanwhile, the pro-heroes have organised a massive offensive against the League. Everything seems to be going well until All Might’s nemesis shows up.

After a public backlash, U.A. implements dorms for the students. With the new term beginning, they start to work on their ultimate moves in preparation for the provisional hero licensing exams. There, they will be up against the brightest hero students from across the country. Continue reading “My Hero Academia – Season Three”

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

All Might has been invited to the floating research island I. It’s the summer break at school and he has asked Midoriya to accompany him. Once they’ve cleared the state of the art security they are greeted by Melissa Shield, the daughter of All Might’s old partner.

Noticing that All Might is struggling to keep his hero form, David Shield convinces Melissa to give Midoriya a preview of the I-expo, a fair for all things hero related. Midoriya quickly learns that he’s not the only member of Class 1A to have come to the island.

During a fancy reception to officially open the I-Expo a team of villains take over the island, capturing all the pro-heroes. Midoriya and his friends will have to overcome incredible odds if they are to save the day. Continue reading “My Hero Academia: Two Heroes”

My Hero Academia – Season Two

In a show of strength, the U.A. Sports Festival goes ahead as planned despite the recent villain attack. It consists of three rounds – an obstacle course, a cavalry charge, and a head-to-head tournament. Midoriya, still unable to control the powers All Might gave him, uses all of his cunning and smarts to win the obstacle course.

But this just puts a target on his back in the cavalry charge and his team only just scrape through at the last moment. The head-to-head tournament puts each of the heroes-in-training in one on one bouts where only the winner advances. It’s no real surprise who wins, but I’m not saying anything.

Following the U.A. Sports Festival, all of the heroes are assigned internships with professional heroes. To All Might’s horror, Midoriya is assigned to his former teacher, Gran Torino. Meanwhile, a villain emerges who sees the current hero statuses as anything but heroic is on a one-man crusade to change things Continue reading “My Hero Academia – Season Two”

My Hero Academia – Season One

In a world where eighty percent of the populace has developed a quirk, Izuku Midoriya dreams of one day becoming a superhero even though he is quirkless. On the way home from school he is attacked by a villain who seeks to use Midoriya’s body to escape from the heroes.

Number one hero, All Might shows up in the nick of time and rescues Midoriya. Desperate for some advice, Midoriya tags along and discovers All Might’s true identity. He advises Midoriya to give up on his dreams and that he should focus on doing something he would be more suited to.

Deflated, Midoriya heads home only to find Bakago, the school bully being attacked by the same villain. With no heroes able to stop it and All Might struggling to maintain his hero form, Midoriya rushes in, inspiring All Might, who may just yet have another secret to reveal.
