The ANN Aftershow
Hawks: Hero or Villain?

by Lynzee Loveridge, Jacki Jing, & The Cartoon Cipher,

All eyes are on Hawks this week as the double (or triple?!) agent moves about city. Where's Best Jeanist? Who is the Meta-Liberation Army and what are their end goals? How did Shigaraki level a whole city? The new arc leaves us with even more questions and not a lot of answers. ALSO: The hosts share their most anticipated anime for summer 2021!
