Izuku has already saved two kids in the span of, like, a month. First Kouta, then Eri.
At this pace he will have an army of children, weilding an arsenal of love and support for him, by the time he becomes a hero.
It’s a symbiotic relationship. Izuku protects them from villians and offers an ear and advice with their young lives. Meanwhile, if you fuck with their precious ray of sunshine big brother, they won’t hesitate to smack you with yard sticks and stick play dough up your nose.
My spirit animal, Shinichiro Watanabe (creator of Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo/Space Dandy) cleansing me with his great, careful lighting & art direction of his lead, African American protagonist from his brilliant and dark anime short : “Blade Runner - Black Out 2022.” A bit shocked no one is talking about this. Then again, Watanabe has always showcased a social imagination with the diverse casting/cultures in his Japanese productions✨💯👌🏾
