The OVA centers on a joint practice session between Izuku's class and the other hero department students at U.A. Academy. Tsuyu reunites with her middle school friend Habuko Mongoose, but a mysterious gas with an apparent "zombie virus" turns some of the characters into the undead.
Froggy-family introduction. What a way to start a side-story. All right so this OVA explores more students at U.A. Academy and their quirks... or it’s supposed to. Really it’s about Tsuyu and her friend. While Deku’s analytical skills and Bakugo’s temper are present, they’re not the focus but neither are any of the other characters or their quirks. Most of the teams have so little screen time that it makes one wonder why the animators bothered including them. There's no real team vs team or class vs class fighting going on. One student uses their quirk to take-over most of the main characters and they go on a rampage that's over quicker than quick. The most enjoyable thing to write about this OVA is a spoiler. So I’ll just say it involves a secret possibly getting revealed in a very comedic way. For an OVA promoted to be about “a joint practice session” involving U.A. Academy heroes in training this was a let down. There was far too much material jammed into less than 23 minutes. This would have fared much better as a simple reuniting of friends. It needed to be a mini-series, several OVA episodes, or an arc in the anime itself. More practice matches between cohorts is a great way to explore a variety of characters and since My Hero Academia is teeming with so many it’s a shame the ensemble fails to get explored the way they deserve.
