I’m glad this episode found a good degree of balance. It would have been really easy to just let Shinso mostly win this thing on his own to establish his capability. Instead they took the more sensible route of having him be a major factor, but require good support in order to really shine. Tsuyu deserves a huge amount of credit for her role in all this. Despite taking a heavy hit early in the match she was a voice of reason that kept everyone cool and her quirk was extremely helpful in creating confusion. Not that Kaminari wasn’t helpful in his own way too. It shows that while he is a goofball that he can use his head when he tries. That’s the power of experience I suppose.
