My Hero Academia Makes Hilarious Joke About Eraserhead's Relationship With Present Mic

My Hero Academia: Vigilantes may be following a brand new cast of heroes attempting to make the world a better place, but that doesn't mean we can't revisit older characters and learn new things about some mainstays that we didn't know before. Such is the case of Eraserhead and Present Mic, whose relationship has been further explored in the pages of this manga spin-off. With Mic acting as the loud, boisterous friend and Aizawa acting as the quiet, reserved classmate, this "Odd Couple" manages to illicit laughs from audiences baring witness to their unique repertoire.

In this flashback, Aizawa enters his UA Academy classroom after drying a wet kitten via his discarded umbrella and manages to bum out the rest of his class by sulking to his desk. Mic, who consistently needs to be the center of attention, makes light of Eraserhead's mood and frantically ribs his friend who will one day become a teacher himself.

Present Mic is a teacher at UA Academy, though his quirk grants him the ability to amplify his own voice to create powerful sound waves, making him the ultimate announcer for any given scenario. Though he now constantly wears a giant metallic neck brace to better control his quirk, his humorous attitude still remains.

It's clear that Mic and Aizawa have a love/hate relationship and we're hoping that new aspects of this relationship are further examined within the manga spin-off that is My Hero Academia: Vigilantes.
