With a total of 3.7 million copies being sold, My Hero Academia(Boku no Hero Academia), released in Shounen Jump (SHOEISHA), will be turned into an anime. The anime will air from April, 2016. Among all the characters in the manga, there are two stupid (?) but hilarious characters. The cast for the two characters is finally being decided and I would like to take this chance and talk about them.
Eijiro Kirishima, a guy with the motto of “living like a man” will be voiced by Toshiki Masuda. Denki Kaminari, a playboy with electricity flowing in his body, will be voiced by Tasuku Hatanaka.
The character designs of these two characters were also released recently.
【The character designs of these two characters were announced!】
A very passionate guy with the motto, “living like a man”. His “personality” allows him to harden his body to defend himself and attack the others..
A playboy. His “personality” allows him to send out electricity from his body. If he releases too much electricity, he will turn into a retard.
