Mei Hatsume Profile

Age: 16

Birthday: 18th April

Height: 157cm

Favorite Things: Steampunk-related things, Chocolate

A member of the support course. She started out as a guy, but I made her a girl because I thought that seemed more interesting. The support course fundamentally exists to educate students who will work in design agencies, making items and costumes for heroes.

A special license is needed to produce those items and costumes, and it's granted after government inspection. Using the produced items usually requires hero qualification, but running experiments and tests in a lab is okay even for non heroes. For individuals whose Quirks impede everyday life, permits for special life improving items may be granted after a rigorous examination .

U.A. has an on campus workshop, and students who submit applications to their teachers are allowed to work on items there after school or during their free time. That Mei has developed so many items after just one month of school is proof that she's a born inventor who practically never leaves the workshop.

Nemuri Kayama (Midnight) Profile

Age: 31

Birthday: 9th March

Height: 175cm

Favorite Things: Vibrant Youth

Believe it or not, she was actually going to be Class A's homeroom teacher when I first created her. But that homeroom teacher had to be someone willing to get sharp tongued with the kids, so after a lot of consideration, I decided that had to be someone who looked more like Shota Aizawa.

I've gotten many letters asking, "What the heck's up with her costume?" As I explained in the bonus comic in Jump NEXT!!, what she's actually wearing is just superthin-tights. Sorry to let you down!

Neito Monoma Profile

Age: 15

Birthday: 13th May

Height 170cm

Favorite Things: French cooking, Franco-Belgian comics

I usually don't base my characters on real-life people, but this guy alone is an exception. Not sure why anyone would really care, though. He's super unlikeable, but as the unofficial spokesperson for Class B, the spotlight is on him for the time being. He's not the class president though . Those classmates of his who didn't agree with his strategy in the obstacle race (to intentionally place somewhat low) ended up placing highly. He was thinking of the good of all Class B when he came up with the plan to rip Class A off their high horses, and that's mostly because all he knew about Class A came from Tetsutetsu's report and Katsuki's opening statement. So I guess he's not a really a bad guy, but I somehow went and made him unlikeable anyway . What a waste. As far as Katsuki's concerned, Neito is a war criminal.

Ken Ishiyama (Cementoss) Profile

Age: 28

Birthday: 27th March

Favorite Things: Roundness, steamed buns

All-powerful in an urban battle environment. Not so much in the mountains or other more natural areas. All I can think while drawing him now is "Why didn't I give him a crew cut?"

Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu Profile

Age: 15

Birthday: 16th October

Favorite Things: Fighting video games, Spinach

I haven't drawn him a lot yet, but if pressed, I'd have to say that I really like his overall form. I hope I get to show him in action more.

Itsuka Kendo Profile

Age: 15

Birthday: 9th September

Height: 166cm

Favorite Things: Motorcycles, Black Coffee

She hasn't gotten a chance to shine yet, but oddly enough, my supervisor and the rest of my staff really like her. She's the president of class B. More than just a tomboy, she's really passionate about things.

Ibara Shiozaki Profile


Birthday: 8th September

Height: 167cm

Favorite Things: Bread

When I drew her in the first draft, I said, "I really screwed myself over with this one." Her hair is such a pain. I didn't notice at first in the rough sketches, but drawing-wise, she's a character to be feared. She was meant to be in Class A but switched over to Class B at some point, Wonder why. Can't really remember.

She's full of compassion. She's hates scheming against or tricking people, so she's unexpectedly open and aboveboard

Hitoshi Shinso Profile

Age: 15

Birthday: 1st July

Height: 177cm

Favorite Things: Cats, Cycling

Before going to bed one night, I was thinking, "What would I do with that ability? Use it for evil?" Use it to skirt the law, maybe? I suddenly awoke later that night, and this character was born. I'm pretty sure that one day soon, I'm going to have to confront my own ridiculous naming schemes

Mina Ashido Profile

Age: 15

Birthday: 30th July

Height: 159cm

Favorite Things: Danciong, Natto, Okra

Truly a victim of circumstance. Due to plain old bad luck, she's come this far without really getting to show off... I draw her really plain, but she's actually got the best reflexes among the girls. By which I mean she's a top-class member of Class A. I hope I get to show how strong she is sooner or later.
