Togaru Kamakiri to Yosetsu Awase in "Early Bird!"

Togaru Kamakiri ( (かま) (きり) (とがる) Kamakiri Togaru?)[1], also known as Jack Mantis (ジャックマンティス Jakku Mantisu?)[2], is a student in Class 1-B at U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.


Togaru is a tall, slender young man with pale yellow-green skin and a bright, fluffy green mohawk. His dark green eyes are pointed downwards to the center of his face, and two hooked blades jut out from either of his cheeks. He has no visible nose, and the shape of his head resembles that of an insect with mandibles.

His hero costume consists of a large, dark cloak and plain black trousers and boots. He has a mask around his eyes and a zig-zag pattern on his shirt.


Togaru is a hot-blooded person who appears rather aggressive in terms of behavior, akin to Katsuki Bakugo's behavior. He also seems to have a passion for fighting against his enemies, demonstrated by his desire to battle Class 1-A in the Joint Training Arc.

Togaru placed 35th in the Obstacle Course and teamed up with Pony Tsunotori for the Cavalry Battle. He then attempted to go after Team Monoma along with Team Kodai after the former managed to trap Team Bakugo with Bondo's Quirk. Togaru and Pony end up getting knocked out of the match by Kosei's Solid Air Quirk.

Joint Training Arc

Like the rest of his classmates in Class 1-B, he travels to the training camp. On the second day, he listens along with the rest of his class as their homeroom teacher Vlad King, who explains them that they will be training their Quirks to improve them.[3]

Later that night, Class 1-B acts as the scaring group during the test of courage. However, However, with the ambush of the Vanguard Action Squad of the League of Villains the fun is interrupted. Togaru was among the 15 students that were in critical condition thanks to Mustard's Poison Gas.[4]

Togaru is briefly seen helping his classmates to prepare their theatrical performance "Romeo, Juliet and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Return of the Kings!" for the Cultural Festival[5]. However, it seems that he does not participate in the actual play.

Togaru and the rest of Class 1-B arrive at the Joint Training Battle with Neito loudly claiming that the momentum is now moving to their side.

Razor Sharp (刃鋭 Jinei?)[1]: Togaru's Quirk allows him to produce blades from all over his body.[7] These blades appear to be very sharp and durable.
