Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “I watched all of My Hero Academia over the last few months with my father, and he loved it. If you’ve been watching the show, all of the events of the first 2 seasons have been building up to these episodes. While I wouldn’t consider this a good place to jump on board with HeroAca, you can consider this an complete recommendation for the series as a whole.” Blaine says, “if you don’t already have a copy, I highly recommend The Sting, one of the greatest con artist movies of all time.”
