A portion of the seats at The Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden will be filled via the pre-show lottery. For more details visit: NYCC19.com/lottery.

I don't think I can make this. It's away from the Javits Center . . . four blocks, but it's a grind getting there.

I finished off my sketchbook. Here are a few of the final sketches I got last Saturday.

I finally catch up on this show as it’s run is (temporarily) over?  Bummer. 

The Deku / Bakugo fight was one of my favorite episodes yet.  I have a kid who’s working on expressing emotions differently, and seeing Bakugo’s inability to express himself without fighting, and Midoria realizing that and going with it to help his friend, was really powerful.  Nicely done, writers.

Last week's repeat was tagged as new for some reason so my DVR picked it up. I'm glad I rewatched though, what I didn't know the first time is they snuck in a brief glimpse of the Big Bad for the upcoming arc.

Checking to see if anyone else saw the fourth season opener. I'm thinking a lot of people are pissed that the latest Toonami "event" pushed things back about five minutes.

The episode is a little light . . . freelance writer gets access to Class 1-A, determines that Midoriya has been tabbed as All Might's successor, but he doesn't spill the beans to his editor. His Quirk? He can grow camera lenses from any part of his body. Also, he can print out photos from his chest. Yep.

This episode got me scratching my head again about the whole "it's illegal to use your quirks in public unless you are a certified hero" thing. If someone caught freelancer taking a palm picture at a public event could they turn him in?

I was a little grouchy about the Forge event, but I have my stuff set to tape slightly long so it didn’t clip anything important.

Bubble Girl definitely keeping it slightly awkward to watch this show with the kids.  Maybe she’ll give Mineta a run for his money.

Bumping up. I think the Overhaul arc is officially over, as Deku manages to save Eri. Of course, there's a lot of collateral damage, including Sir Nighteye getting punctured and Togata's Quirk getting wiped out, killing the hero's career before it starts.

Lots of fun stuff, including oddly sweet moments with Toga and Twice. Gotta love how they didn't want to work with the Yazuka, and they drove one of their bigger guns into a rage by taunting him.

ETA: I'm still getting sketches. Here's Endeavor, Toga and Stain.

Bumping up again. I'm just seeing if anyone else is watching. Judging by the credits, we're approaching a school festival and a Jiro plot (she's the one with the earbuds coming out of her earlobes). First, though, we get the washouts from the License Exam (including Todoroki and Bakugo) dealing with headstrong kids, and Aoyama revealing to Midoriya that he also has a Quirk incompatible with his body . . . . but since Aoyama is the effete French boy, his initial efforts basically freak Midoriya the hell out. Leaving behind a message spelled out in cheese? You know a situation is messed up when the thought of Aoyama being a serial killer is the best case scenario.

Aoyama the disco ball: “I’ve been preparing for this moment my whole life!”

“Eri? Honey, we’re going to introduce you to concept of fun, since Uncle Overhaul was the worst guardian ever. We’re going to the School Festival! What can possibly go wrong?” Cut to Gentle Criminal burning himself with tea. Compared to guys like Stain, he would be a “best case” complication.

Bakugo is still Angry Bomb Boy, but I reckon he’s being more reasonable . . . even if he wants the 1A band to murder the audience.

Is it wrong that I think it would be an appropriate destiny for him?

ETA Best Imagine Spot: Bakugo and Todoroki in full Saturday Night Fever mode. That was beautiful.

I haven't watched the latest episode yet. Just wanted to inform anyone that's interested that Cartoon Network has been airing episodes at 5:30 a.m., starting with the first one on Tuesday morning. Apparently, they're running Tuesdays-Saturdays.

Another heads-up: the episode that ran next week will be rerun tomorrow night. Here's the Facebook post where I learned about it.

Has anyone else been keeping up with the show? The latest episodes were basically Deku in a physical and mental war of ideologies against Gentile Criminal and La Brava. Turns out Gentle's motivations are beyond being a pain in the ass. His origin was sad, especially when contrasted to that of La Brava.

Good news: Festival arc is over! Bad news: We're going into repeats on Toonami! It's a production thing . . . I think that Funimation is having problems dubbing the episodes into English since they can't meet in one place anymore. There are only two more episodes left.

Festival was a success, Jiro and the rest of 1A rocked, Eri smiled a lot, and Deku got to beat the snot out of Gentle Criminal. Also, La Brava. I don't think she had an "introduction" via Present Mic. "NAME! La Brava! QUIRK! Some Ol' Bullshit! Apparently, if she loves someone hard enough, she can power that person up! Are you kidding me?!?" Of course, those two were properly fleshed out and sympathetic. When you have guys like Stain, All-For-One and Overhaul, seeing a guy doing the MHA/BnHA version of Jackass is welcome.
