I just have to say that the scene at the USJ with Mic and Aizawa always gets to me. Mic is clearly pissed. I’d even say he’s livid. Imagine the pain and the anger you would feel to see your best friend and possible partner, reduced to something like this? Sure, they’re pro heroes and this kind of stuff could easily happen and probably does happen but can you imagine the fucking sheer anger Mic must have upon seeing this? Teachers had no idea what kind of state 13 and Eraserhead would be in but when they arrive the first thing Mic gets to see is this. His best friend, on the brink of death. Completely destroyed after trying to protect his students on his own.
Look at Mic, his little “tch” he does is an indication that he’s fuckin livid.
Even throughout the manga (which I am currently caught up with) and the anime, you never see Mic this angry. No doubt he’s mad about the general attack on U.A but I think this anger more so stems from the fact that his best friend was almost killed.
This was it. This was the scene that got me to ship them so hard. Before this scene I always kinda shipped them as like a joke. But this scene man. Oh man. It’s maybe what, 10 seconds of screen time but there is enough emotion put into it that it has completely convinced me on their relationship whether it be platonic or romantic. There’s clearly a bond between them and it shows.
