As for the boy, that’s none other than Inasa Yoarashi. The loud, muscular student is another one hailing from Shiketsu High School, and his larger-than-life attitude quickly endeared him to fans. After all, his special wind-centric Quirk did blow manga readers away when it finally debuted.
For those unaware of the series’ next arc, it is a fun one. The ‘Hero License Exam’ follows the students of Class 1-A as they try to get their provisional Hero Licenses so they can fight back should villains target them. The arc will feature a battle royale tournament between some of Japan’s top heroes-in-training as only so many licenses can be given. So, with a Quirk like One For All, you know Izuku will have something special in store to get his credentials.
For those unfamiliar with the My Hero Academia juggernaut, the series was created by Kohei Horikoshi and has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has super powers but he was born without them. Dreaming to become a superhero anyway, he's eventually scouted by the world's best hero All Might and enrolls in a school for professional heroes. The series has been collected into 15 volumes so far, and has been licensed by Viz Media for an English language release since 2015.
