Hero Interview Training (ヒーローインタビューの練習よ Hīrō Intabyū no Renshū?) is a training program for Class 1-A to learn how to properly deal with the media as Pro Heroes.

Prologue

Mt. Lady teaching Class 1-A about media

Mt. Lady guest teaches media training for Class 1-A.

Following their Hero Debuts only thirty minutes after receiving their Provisional Hero Licenses, the duo is interviewed by a well-known media outlet.

The boys accidentally showcase how untrained to the media they are as they don't agree on most statements and Katsuki is overly angry as usual. So much so, that they cut all his footage from the full interview released to the public.

After returning to school, Katsuki is made fun of by Denki and others for losing all his screentime. The students also discuss the good press around heroes recently due to Endeavor's rather than criticize them, forcing Shoto to think about his image.

Mt. Lady suddenly arrives and Aizawa announces she's the guest lecturer for today's class: Hero Interview Training! [1]

Training

Mt. Lady and Midnight set up a make-shift press release podium and Shoto is the first to media train. He's mostly aloof and clueless, as Midnight has to tell him how to properly answer and explain. She asks him about his signature move and he shows off the Heaven-Piercing Ice Wall.

Deku demonstrates Blackwhip

Deku tries to showcase his new move!

Fumikage Tokoyami wonders if the students should reveal their special moves during interviews. Mt. Lady then answers him by stating that ultimate moves symbolize a hero's true demeanor, and adds that Heroes shout the names of their ultimate moves in order to put others at ease. Minoru and Aizawa note has Mt. Lady has become more responsible in this new age of rising villains. Everyone is rising to the occasion along with the new number one hero.

Tenya, Ochaco, Momo, Fumikage, Eijiro, Mina, Mashirao, Mezo, and Denki all go next and do well. However, Katsuki takes the stage and Mt. Lady notes he does interviews much better alone and Shoto apologizes for getting his footage cut.

Deku takes the stage last and Midnight asks him about his new move. He's able to channel a bit of its power and while he's proud of himself, everyone else watches confused.[2]

Aftermath

Meanwhile, Nezu and All Might meet and the Principal announces its time to announce the next round of Hero Work Studies. [3]
