ok as someone who's never watched the show and knows nothing about it, what did mineta do that caused him to be so absolutely hated? Like im just really curious omg
I was gonna go through and collect screenshots but Mineta isn’t worth that amount of time and energy he’s trash just trash.
Mineta has one single personality trait and thats being a shameless crass disgusting pervert. He exists only to walk around like “hey audience, these girls sure do have butts and boobs dont they?” That’s all he does is openly and shamelessly try to perve on the girls in the series.
Notable examples include:
- Groping Tsu’s breast when she saved him from drowning (Tsu promptly holds his head beneath water while talking to Deku like nothing happened)
- Standing beside Yaoyorozu and checking out her ass while she set up a barricade during their team-building exercise
- Shouting at Aoyama to blast Mina’s clothes off during their sports festival battle (only to end up grossed out when it was actually Aoyama’s pants that fell down, then lamenting about “why couldnt they have switched quirks” so the opposite would happen)
- Freaking out that hes too young to die because he “hasnt seen Yaoyorozu naked yet”
- Clinging to Yaoyorozu’s back during the race portion of the festival
- (btw every offense against Yaoyorozu counts double because Yaoyorozu is my daughter who deserves to not be constantly harassed by this purple nightmare)
- Attempting to spy on the girl’s hotspring side and, as far as i recall, attempting to get the other boys to join him
- Perving on Mt. Lady i dont remember the whole context
- Asserting that Bakugou must have a sadism kink because Bakugou was giving it his all in his fight against Uraraka
- Countless others that I’m probably forgetting.
On the bright side, I have this theory that Mineta exists as some kind of vulgarity filter for literally everyone else in BNHA. Because there is practically zero perversion in the series outside Mineta and my theory is that he’s absorbing it all.
Like most anime will do the kind of “Main character looks at his crush and his eyes shift to her breasts and he gets all flustered because he remembers Girls Have Breasts Oh Boy.” That DOESNT happen in BNHA. The girls dont received comments on how sexualized their outfits may or may not be. The boys and girls are allowed to just coexist as classmates and rivals and equals.
Except for Mineta. Fuck Mineta.
