I’ve always headcanoned Mina to be lesbian and Kirishima to be gay and with the recent developments of these chapters, while people are shipping them, I have to say that I’m on the boat that views them as gay best friends that give each other extra love and support. I mean why else would Mina join Bakugou’s team? Ok ever so slightly kidding there but like, imagine their late night talks about their love lives, imagine Kirishima rocking putting on that red nail polish for Mina while she rocks on putting on that hair dye for him, imagine them secretly checking up on each other and making sure the other is ok, imagine them teasing each other about their crushes and doing things that pushes them closer together (well more Mina to Kirishima since Kirishima couldn’t be more obvious with his crush on Bakugou tbh), imagine them going to a pride festival together, imagine them just being such good support buddies to the other.
That’s the high quality friendship that I can’t wait to see more of in this manga. I hope Horikoshi gives us more scenes of them when the arc is over!
