Makoto

Volume 3 (Illegals) Makoto Tsukauchi Profile
  • Real Name: Makoto Tsukauchi
  • Birthday: March 3
  • Height: 168cm
  • Favorite Thing: Coffee
  • Quirk: Polygraph

The Rough Design

I think that giving her back hair is a good way to balance her against other characters and give her that "big sister" feel.

At-home clothes

The face she shows the world paints her as shrewd and always on the ball, but on the inside she's more than a little obessive.

Looks as if her laugh would be a "gah ha ha!"

Behind The Scenes

Makoto sets up plans, gives lots of explanations, flusters Pop and is generally a character who serves multiple purposes. But I didn't want to make her too much of a plot device, so she's also got a reckless, wild side to her… Incidentally, her relaxing-at-home outfit makes her look like a young housewife. Kind of sexy.
—Furuhashi

I have an ideal image of how she should look, but I always have trouble putting that into the dawings. It's a constant process of trial and error, which means she's changed a lot since her debut…
—Betten

Soccer Villain/Emeror Yotsuura

Volume 3 (Illegals) Emperor Yotsuura Profile

The Rough Design

Sun visor

Rolled-up sleeves are good, right?

Behind The Scenes

At first, the idea was "Soccer Theif:Robert Chamba," but once the drawings were done, he just looked like an old dude who’s good at soccer, so we had to make him more villain-like… Hence the penguin gimmick
—Furuhashi

The character went through a lot of redesigns. (LOL) From his name alone, I'm picturing a soccer-based character from some old fighting game.
—Betten

Kaiju Villian

Volume 3 (Illegals) Kaiju Villain Profile

Behind The Scenes

This big guy was perfect for showing off Captain Celebrity's power and organizational might in his debut chapter. The monster itself has no background to speak of and is more of a natural disaster than a character. One that causes a ridiculous amount of destruction. Effects of the "Naruhata monster incident" reverberate throughout the chapter to come.
—Furuhashi

I'm not that great at drawing giant monsters. (LOL) But I tried hard with the guy.
—Betten

The Rough Design

About 15 meters tall

Captain Celebrity

Volume 3 (Illegals) Christopher Skyline Profile
  • Real Name: Christopher Skyline
  • Birthday: July 4
  • Height: 200cm
  • Favorite Thing: Hamburgers, Steaks
  • Quirk: Flight

The Rough Design

Costume is reminiscent of Vegeta

Hairstyle like Hanawa (from Chibi Maruko-chan)

Buzz cut in back

Cleft chin

Behind The Scenes

A guy who represents the sleazier side of pro heroes. It seems readers really, really hate him, probably because of Koichi's "bad vibes" line when he first showed up. He ended up being an unexpectedly lovable old dude with more than a few chinks in his armor, but, well, first impressions are everything.
—Furuhashi

Thick cleft chin + Freeza's army + Knights of the Zodiac + Hanawa hair. That's the image, here.
—Betten

Stylish Pop & Master

Volume 3 (Illegals) Takeshi Kuroiwa (Knuckleduster) and Kazuho Haneyama

The Rough Design

Scruff, only on chin

Style like City Hunter

The "cleaner" (assassin) one

Envelope doesn't carry a bag

Absence of glasses shows how hard she's trying…

This is Pop's idea of getting all dolled up… or something

Behind The Scenes

As you might have noticed, the heart of this chapter was Pop going home to change. Her outfit shows you how hard she’s trying, which is really cute. Master is about to have a serious arc of his own, so I wanted to portray this side of him in advance—how he’s also a put-together guy with a life of his own.
—Furuhashi

The request from Furuhashi-san for Pop was "a nature girl…" With Master, I thought there was good synergy between his "Janitor of the Fist" thing and the "cleaner" look. (LOL)
—Betten

Koichi's Mom

Volume 3 (Illegals) Shoko Haimawari Profile
  • Real Name: Shoko Haimawari
  • Birthday: August 20
  • Height: 164cm
  • Favorite Thing: Gyoza
  • Quirk: Fly Swatter

The Rough Design

Made her a bit more slender than the design request

Behind The Scenes

Moms are also an important component of My Hero Academia, but in Vigilantes, the emphasis is more one growing up and not wanting to let one’s child go, since the protagonist is a little older.

You can imagine what sorts of personalities Koichi's parents might have, based on his own, so making these decisions wasn’t too hard.
—Furuhashi

Furuhashi-san's description painted her as a housewife by trade, but she ended up looking more like a dedicated career-woman. Whoops!
—Betten

Explanation

The following chapters, "Hero Conference" and "Hero Visit," appeared in the Shonen Jump special Jump Giga and represent a serialized spin-off of the spin-off. Along with episode 7.5 "Appearance Matters," and episode 9.5 "Mask," (which were in Vigilantes volume 2), the four bonus chapters appeared throughout volumes 1 through 4 of the magazine 2017.

Unlike the series in Jump+, these chapters would be encountered by more first-time readers, so they lean toward stand-alone stories with a slightly different flavor.

Our vigilante friends are notably absent from "Hero Conference" and "Hero Visit," as the focus is instead on the pro heroes.

In terms of the timeline, they take place around the same time as episode 6 "No Need To Hold Back,"from the start of volume 2. The events at the end of volume 1 concern a surge of instant villains in the Naruhata neighborhood, and here we see how the police and pro heroes are dealing with all that.

Bomb Villain

Volume 3 (Illegals) Suicide Bomber Profile

The Rough Design

Behind The Scenes

I wanted a villain who'd get saved by Midnight's motherly side, so I worked backwards from there. Almost seems like this guy was born to play the role of suicide bomber. No wonder he became a villain!
—Furuhashi

Given the whole bombing angle, I imagine he must've been a tunnel engineer or something, up until this point. Hence the blue-collar worker outfit.
—Betten

Midnight/Endeavor

Volume 3 (Illegals) Endevor and Midnight Profile

The Rough Design

Mermaid-like silhouette

Looks like ne'er-do-well..

Midnight

Endeavor

Behind The Scenes

I saw this as my chance to take what Horikoshi Sensei does with his "street clothes" pages and do my own sketches. Personally, this was really fun but also nerve-wracking… Had to approach it gingerly.
—Betten

Ingenium/Jeanist

Volume 3 (Illegals) Tensei Iida and Best Jeanist Profile

The Rough Design

White suit

Because his team's color is white

Ingenium

Jeanist

Mouth is hidden

Eyes are also hidden

Entire suit made out of denim

Behind The Scenes

The clothes they're all wearing during the meeting with the police. I love stories where heroes are going around in their street clothes, so I asked Betten-san for business suits and/or plain clothes on the fancy side. Big fan of the scene where Midnight busts out of her suit (!) and shows all that skin.
—Furuhashi

Manual/Thirteen

Volume 3 (Illegals) Manual and Thirteen Profile

Behind The Scenes

For the relatively minor characters (ones who haven't been unmasked in the main story yet) readers wouldn't even know them by their faces, so l asked Betten-san to preserve certain elements of their hero costumes Manual (the guy who oversees Ida's internship) makes a gimmick out of his plainness. He's barely recognizable without that frill on his head!
—Furuhashi

There wasn't a lot to go on with these fellows, which left me pretty desperate. (LOL) I can say that drawing Manual was fun, though!
—Betten

The Rough Design

Aizawa is same as in episode 2.

lvy League look

Manual

Air Jet and Gunhead appear as they always do.

Thirteen

Rubber soles

Hero costumes are their formal wear, in a sense…...

Snipe/Desutegoro

Volume 3 (Illegals) Snipe and Death Arms Profile

The Rough Design

Polo shirt

Daisuke Jigen

Snipe

Desutegoro

Midnight boys

Volume 3 (Illegals) Midnight Boys Profile

Behind The Scenes

The band of pretty-boy sidekicks who wait on Midnight…is all I came up with, but they emerged with these very detailed designs. Weird.
—Furuhashi

What kind of guys would appear in a dating sim for girls? That was my starting point here. But I've never actually played those games, so they probably wound up looking a little different. (LOL)
—Betten

Afterword

Volume 3 (Illegals) Afterword

I'm the artist, Betten! We've somehow made it all the way to volume 3!

Springing off from Horikoshi-san's impressive MHA-verse, Furuhashi-san and his talent have taken the helm while I'm propelling the ship from behind with my doggy-pading.

Look forward to volume 4 and beyond!!

January 2018

Horikoshi's Message

Horikoshi’s Illustration in Vigilantes volume 3

Congrats on volume 3!

Furuhashi Sensei, Betten Sensei: thank you for a manga that's always a blast to read!

Hachisuka sure is a cutie!

But also kind of scary…
—Kohei Horikoshi
