Finally, we have a report on the final episode recordings that closed the TV anime first season.
The final 13th episode of the TV anime “My Hero Academia”’s first season aired on Sunday, June 26th. They had the voice recordings done in a studio in Tokyo in June.
Daiki Yamashita for Izuku, Kenta Miyake for All Might, and almost all the cast of the anime MHA were there for the epilogue.
The best highlight scene of all is where All Might is exhausted and unable to move at all with his time limit coming close after the fierce battle against the strong villain, Noumu. And the villains, Sigaraki and Kurogiri, charge at All Might.
At such a devastating moment, Izuku jumps in to save All Might…
For that scene, Mr. Yamashita commented, “I’ve acted this role the whole season, but this Izuku was someone very different from whom I’ve acted. He was almost ghastly and took action to save All Might. You can see another side of him here. It was a challenge for me as well, doing all I could, discussing a lot with the director and Mr. Mima (the sound director).”
Everyone in the booth was so excited with his acting of Izuku, who devoted himself to save his idol, All Might.
All the cast acted out what they could, seriously facing each of their own roles, to celebrate the finale of the first season and closed the whole recordings.
After the recordings were over, Mr. Daiki Yamashita and Mr. Kenta Miyake, on behalf of the cast, received flowers from the director.
Mr. Yamashita enthusiastically commented, “I think we made a strong bond with the whole cast through the first season. Let’s keep up the good work for the second season!”
Mr. Miyake used his own line of All Might from the show and said, “Go further beyond for the second season! Plus Ultra!” and showed his enthusiasm.
And lastly the whole cast shouted together “Plus Ultra!” and renewed their determination for the second season.
