'My Hero Academia' Reveals Touching Aizawa Flashback

My Hero Academia may focus its time on the students of UA Academy, but they aren't the only heroes worth noting. Pros like All Might have been stars from the start, and it seems a new flashback has shone a touching light on Aizawa as of late.

Shueisha released the latest chapter of My Hero Academia, and it was there fans met up with Eraserhead. The pro hero may prefer a low profile, but his gig as a homeroom teacher for Class 1-A keeps him busy. These days, he is overseeing a match between Izuku and Shinso, and the manga teased how Aizawa began mentoring the latter.

After the purple-haired boy lost his Sports Tournament match, it seems Aizawa began helping Shinso train. Despite being a general track student, Shinso has the potential to be a great hero, but he lacks the combat skills to succeed. That is where Aizawa stepped in to train Shinso, and a flashback shows one instance of their training.

So, it makes sense Aizawa would go hard on Shinso for a moment only to drop a truly sentimental line before their training wrapped.

"People like you and me... When things go south, we're dead if we can't rely on ourselves," Aizawa preached, pushing Shinso to continue training with his capture scarf.

"Like I said, keep practicing and I hope you understand that I'm not the type to waste time on hopeless causes."

So, there you have it. Aizawa has become Dad-zawa to Shinso, and fans are loving it. In the same way he believed in Izuku once the student found a way to use his quirk, Aizawa sees the same potential in Shinso. Now, it is just a matter of time before UA Academy adds a new student to its hero track, and fans are hoping Shinso gets added to Class 1-A in the end.

So, are you a fan of Dad-zawa or...? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
