We’re all focusing on Shouji’s face and Kirishima’s past when none of us are talking about this guy:
A sparkling man who is very prideful and sees himself superior so everyone basically sees him as a narcissist.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THIS:
IF NOBODY GONNA TALK ABOUT THIS I AM THEN-
Chapter 108 was a very interesting Chapter, because it actually showed a little bit of Aoyama’s past. Instead of being his prideful self in his chapter, he actually showed another side. A self-conscious side, something that shows he was possibly bullied.
Looking at the first and second picture, I came up with a theory of why Aoyama is self-conscious of his own quirk and being “Unequal”.
There was a chance that his parents told him he was different, but in a bad way. In the second photo, I cant even tell if he’s crying, shocked, or both because of the belt. It also came in a package, and this also shows that he’s had that belt ever since he was a young child.
So in conclusion, I believe there was a chance his parents actually neglected his quirk and made him think he was unequal. I hope more on his past is shown, since this was a surprise since most of the whole series he’s seen as a dashing, twinkling male.
