In the beta works Kohei Horikoshi made before Kirishima became the Kirishima we all know and love, there’s something about that he resolved to be a hero for the girl that he likes.
And there are speculations about how he was an emo kid, or some bad reputation, maybe he was in a gang or some sort.
So what if, he knew a girl from school and she was talking about the hero Crimson Riot. Mentioning him to Kirishima, how manly and cool the hero was and that they sorta looked alike! (So Kirishima is natural red-head) So Kiri must’ve liked this girl and felt flattered. They became friends and the girl was a fan of the Crimson Riot and telling him she wants to get into U.A. so she can become a hero as well.
Fast forward in time, Kirishima made some bad decisions in middle school. Getting new friends, dyeing his hair and style, hanging out with some bad people, skipping school (what ever you prefer. if he was an emo, a delinquent or a gang member.) The girl confronts him about this. But a villain comes to interrupt and attacks them, the girl gets hurt and that makes Kirishima feel horrible about himself because he couldn’t protect her. Because he was weak.
Maybe she even got paralyzed and she is in a wheelchair now - to make things REALLY dark.
Just a thing that has been in my mind for a while after the latest chapter of the manga. Maybe even fanfic worthy?
In fondo, dire #follow4follow o tutte quelle stronzate da utopia postmoderna di quel tipo, è come dire “ciba il mio ego di aria fritta che io ti scoreggio in bocca”. Ti riempi lo stomaco, ma avrai sempre più fame
