protect tooru

A collection of Iwaizumi Hajime’s smile:

  • Iwa’s victorious smile, the one he shares with Oikawa when they pull an amazing combo, the one he shares with his teammates when they take the games, is the most contagious thing. It’s all tooth and eyes half crescent with a brilliant light sparking within them. It’s an instant energy and adrenaline boost to any recipient of the smile.
  • Iwa gives small, hidden smile with the tip of tongue picking out when he eats something he likes. 
  • When Iwa’s amused, his smiles is all laugh and teary eyes. It is bright and wide and shows a bit of his upper gum and his cute canine teeth. 
  • Iwa gives this pouty smile when he coos and plays with his neighbor’s dog, Oikawa’s sister’s cat and all the animals he tries to get close to. 
  • When Iwa’s shy or unsure, he has a habit of biting his lips. Oikawa can tell when Iwa’s smile is no longer shy or unsure but borderlines uncomfortable. It’s the strain in the corner of Iwa’s lips, how they twitch despite how hard Iwa tries to hide it out of politeness.
  • Iwa’s a nostalgic boy and smiles one of his softest smile when he’s lost in thoughts/memories. 
  • Iwa nails his innocent smile at a very young age. Paired with Oikawa’s, they can get themselves out of nearly every trouble they get themselves into.
  • After Iwa has done or gotten away unsuspectedly from a successfully pulled prank, he’d wear this very pleased, very impish smile, a little crooked to the side, enough to make that one dimple he has on his left cheek visible.
  • While Oikawa might be the apple of many girls’ eyes, Iwa’s encouraging-and-inspiring-senpai smile has probably slayed more heart than Oikawa among the seijou volleyball club and the male student party.
  • Iwa’s smile is the most beautiful thing that ever blesses this world.

I am not biased. I only speak the truth.



I would like to point out something important.

I’m not all that good at physics or math, but…

Oikawa was not going to hit Kageyama.

From the angle of his arm and the position we are shown when and after Iwaizumi blocks him, we can see it pretty clearly.

Oikawa was aiming at the ball.

Not at Kageyama’s head, but at the ball he was holding.

Oikawa was probably going to slap it away or something similar.

He still is a shitty and childish senpai to Kageyama but…he’s not an abusive bully or an aggressive guy, ready to beat to a pulp his junior. He doesn’t have anger issues. He wasn’t going to harm him. He’s just mad, frustrated and his usual teenager trash.

Let’s think about the possibility, okay?




(Ps. yes this is a fan theory! There can be other interpretations or ideas and this is not 10000% right and indisputable, no need to fight about this, just look at my second and at yukiranine’s reblog for other views and discussions! (Friendly) Exchanging ideas, theories, views and headcanons is funny!)

“Yes hagakure san, those clothes look amazing on you, and not just because youre invisible.”

All those All Might Protection Squad ideas I see here on tumblr left me wondering – how would the kids react if someone dared to badmouth All Might?

Like, when that his true form was revealed, everybody seemed to react really well to it, right? They still cheered for him, trusted in him to win the fight against All for One. But what if some people didn’t and don’t think so, and instead just think of Toshinori and his true form as a “fake” and not a true hero? (Like Izuku did when he first saw Toshinori in powered-down form, though then, it was more out of shock and confusion.)

Let’s think about it. The students and Toshinori are out – let’s say, they are doing a shopping tour together to buy Toshinori some new, fitting clothes – when a group of teenagers passes them and makes the biggest mistake of their life.

And here, I wrote a little fic-snippet:

Up until then, everything had went well. Class 1-A plus teacher had have a lot of fun that afternoon, trying to find different outfits for Toshinori, laughing over their choices or whooping and clapping exaggeratedly when they found something good. Toshinori had been tense and uncomfortable at first, still not used to being seen in public in this form, but the longer he had spent with “his” kids, the more he had relaxed. Now, on their way back to the dorms (“home” had Mina said, and nobody had corrected her) carrying bags of new clothes in every form and colour, Toshinori was laughing loudly alongside the kids, almost coughing up blood because he was laughing so hard.


Just when he whips the tears of mirth out of his eyes, a pair of teenagers passes them, laughing loudly, but not as cheerfully as their peers. The one on the left nudges his friend in the side and they both grin too widely and too darkly at Toshinori in passing.

Toshinori doesn’t notice them, too wrapped up in something Tooru is telling him with wildly waving hands, but the other kids do. Izuku tenses, Bakugou perks up and all of the students save Tooru and their teacher slow down just a little bit.

And one of the teenagers behind them whispers a bit too loudly: “Just look at him! Like a skeleton!”

“And that’s supposed to be a hero!” His friend answers, and both start laughing.


By now, Izuku stands stock-still in place, fists balled and eyes wide. Bakugou comes to a halt next to him, hands in his pockets and the distinct smell of sweat turning into explosives filling the air. More and more of class 1-A come to a halt, expressions ranging from shock to indignation up to blank fury.

That’s when the whispering jerks overstep their boundaries one last time.

“More like a joke!”


“Deku,” Bakugou’s voice is not loud or explosive like usual, but icy cold. It’s the most dangerous they’ve ever heard him. “Go distract him.”

Izuku breathes in, eyes flashing with something dangerous, before he breathes out deeply, the look passing and calmness sweeping back in. “Got it.”

Stiffly, Izuku wills himself to take one step, then another, before he jogs up to Toshinori and Tooru, closing the distance between them. “Toshinori-san!”

“Ah, yes?” Toshinori wants to turn around to his student, but Izuku already interlinks their arms and all but drags him further ahead, pointing to a shop they have not yet visited. “Let’s go there next, okay?”

“Huh? I thought we wanted to go back…”

“Deku is right, Sensei!” Uraraka pops up on Toshinori’s other side, also taking his hand in hers to pull him along. “We have to visit that shop before we go! It would, uh, be a real shame if we missed it!”

“You can’t just pass by this shop, All Might-sensei!” Kirishima joins in, grinning too brightly at him. “It would be really unmanly!”

Toshinori tilts his head, suspicious of the way his students act, but as the other catch up to them and everyone begins to talk over each other, trying to get him to enter the shop, he sighs and gives up. “Okay, okay! Fine, let’s go in there.”

“You’re the best!”

“Ah, where are Bakugou and Todoroki, by the way?”

“Uh, they will catch up to us on the way home! Don’t worry!”


Just as they enter the shop and the door falls closed behind them, there is the sound of something – someone – slipping on ice and falling to the ground with a loud thud to be heard. Two howls of pain follow, mixed with “What the hell?! Where does that ice come from?!”

“Hey, you two jerks!” Bakugou all-too familiar growl overrides the indignant yells of the teenagers. “What did you just fucking say about our teacher?!”

“W-What the-… Dude, what?! What business is it of yours what we say about the scarecrow?!”

“Okay, that’s it, you two are basically begging for it.”

“Don’t use your quirk, Bakugou.”

“Shut up, halfie. I’m not fucking stupid. Just going to give them a good old scare, don’t need my quirk for that.”

When Todoroki and Bakugou join their friends a good quarter of an hour later in the shop – it’s a teashop, they have found out by now – Bakugou is grinning quite savagely and proudly, and Todoroki smirks to himself . It’s almost uncanny how similarly pleased they look with themselves, and how there seems to be a silent understanding between all students to not say anything, just smile and nod at each other.

Izuku peers out of the shop  before they go, and gives a thumps-up when there is no one in sight. Most of all not a pair of teenagers.

But there is a spot on the ground which is still covered with a thin layer of ice. Seeing as it is summer and quite hot, that is a little bit suspicious.

Toshinori really hopes his students did not get in too much trouble.

Sees wonderful art of Oikawa: OHHHH This will get my like and reblog.

Sees captions saying anything about him being trash or calling him trash: hesitates to even like the pic.


Momiji comes off as an innocent flower who needs protecting, but the truth is that out of the entire Zodiac, Momiji is the most mentally independent of them all. His selflessness is his strength, but so is his awareness. He can read people and situations, he just hides his observations.

Even earlier in this volume, Momiji tested Kyou by saying “Really? That’s great!” when he found out that Kyou wouldn’t be going back to Akito. As soon as he said it, he followed up with, “If I said that…would you be mad?” This is one of the first insights into the deeper complexities that make up Momiji Sohma.

The panel above is extremely important because *Momiji is standing up to god.* This is a huge deal. His arms are out stretched and he is both physically and mentally defying Akito by being an obstacle in her path. The other Zodiac members are watching from above and, even though they want to help, it’s still difficult for them to move against god.

Not for Momiji, though. His first instinct isn’t to please god, it’s to protect Tooru. He does this by trying to empathize with Akito and appeal to her childlike nature because, maybe more than anyone, Momiji can understand that Akito is a scared child.

Momiji is the real MVP.


“I don’t have a favorite Tobio. they’re all super annoying. Even sleeping Tobio is annoying because he’s cute. What a troublesome brat….” 

(He’d get protective all the time! Can’t just leave a cute Tobio alone! Must protect! :3c)
