The character designs and voice cast for Neito Monoma and Ibara Shiozaki from My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) have been revealed! They are members of class 1-B which participates in the big event U.A Academy Athletic Festival in which hero candidates compete against each other.
Neito Monoma (VA: Kohei Amasaki) is the center of class B and even for a member of that class, he is especially prideful. His “Quirk” has yet to be revealed. Ibara Shiozaki (VA: Miho Masaka) is very sensitive and her “Quirk” is the ability to control her thorny hair freely.

Comment from Kohei Amasaki
‘I am Kohei Amasaki and I will be taking Neito Monoma’s role. I’ve wanted to participate in this series for a long time so I was so happy to be selected, but nervous at the same time! I like Monoma for his character that is hard to dislike so I’m honored to be able to play him. I will put my mind together with class B just like as Monoma does. Thank you!!’
Ibara Shiozaki (VA: Miho Masaka)
Comment from Miho Masaka
‘I’m Miho Masaka and I will be playing Ibara Shiozaki. I cried when I first read the series. I’m very honored to be able to act as one of hero candidates that are trying their best to become heroes. Ibara is a kind girl despite her appearance. I want to express both her kindness and strength! I won’t waste this chance.’
