We have the character design for Endeavor, a new character that will appear in the Spring 2017 second season of anime Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)!
Endeavor is the father of Izuku’s classmate Sho Todoroki. He is the main reason why Todoroki has such a huge complex even though he has such high fighting ability. Endeavor’s presence in the manga is already overwhelming, so we’re sure it will be even more overwhelming in the anime!
Endeavor will be voiced by Tetsu Inada. His voice acting as Gamagoori in KILL la KILL was strong but kind at the same time. We think that he will be a great match for Endeavor’s voice.
Here is an official comment from Inada:
‘Shonen Jump, heroes and Pro Wrestling. Those were the three top things I loved when I was in elementary school. I still love them. How can I not to get excited knowing that I will be playing a hero in an anime from my favorite magazine: Shonen Jump. Moreover, that hero has the physique of a pro wrestler! Endeavor has some difficult characteristics but I love him.’
