Welcome to Quirks & Questions, a weekly letters column where you, a My Hero Academia fan, write into Funimation (that’s us) about all things related to your favorite superhero anime.
Every week, we’ll answer a handful of your letters on the Funimation Blog, so be on the lookout for a response.
All hero offices/agencies are great, but if you had to choose one, which would you join and why?from Mishima
Hi Mishima, thanks for writing in! This is a great question, because there are SO MANY amazing hero agencies out there in My Hero Academia.There’s Best Jeanist and his Genius Office, the Nighteye Agency of Sir Nighteye, Oki Mariner, Uwabami, Gunhead and so many more!
But to answer your question, we’ve got to go with the lovable and incredibly squishy Fat Gum for this one! Not only do you get to hang out with the hero himself, but also Suneater and Red Riot! Sounds like a party.
HOW THE HECK DID MINETA GET INTO UA!!from Fuyu
Please do not cuss at us.
All jokes aside, though, everyone has their redeemable qualities.
I only just now found out about this great series of blog posts, but happy (late) birthday to the best teacher, Shota Aizawa!! What do you guys think his favorite flavor of cake would be? I’m thinking chocolate!from commonlysimple
Hi there, thanks for your question — and thanks for catching up on Quirks & Questions! We love Shota Aizawa over here, so of course we had to celebrate his birthday. But you bring up a great query, what would his favorite cake flavor be?
We agree with you on chocolate, but we’ve gotta take it a step further. Triple chocolate? Quadruple chocolate?! We’d definitely want to take a nap after that.
As a lover of video games I have noticed references to games in the anime and manga so I have to ask, who would be the class gamer in UA and what would they play?from Red Leon
Thanks for the question, Red Leon! We also love video games, so we’re pretty excited to speculate on who the class gamer at U.A. might be. After running down a list of everyone, we’ve narrowed it down to three potentials: Sero, Mina and Kaminari.
We could see Sero getting super into Dark Souls, but also taking some time to play through Spider-Man. Mina would totally jam out to some Dance Dance Revolution. And Kaminari? We feel like he’d be hanging back to play some Pokémon and keeping his Nintendo Switch consistently charged.
What do you think each character’s theme song would be? (For example I was thinking Warriors by Imagine Dragons for Deku)from Merida
We LOVE this question. And while we can’t say for sure which theme song would fit each character, we can take our best guess! See our brainstorming results below.
Tsuyu – “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night
Bakugo – “Fire” by BTS
Kirishima – “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus (This song also works for Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, but it’s played backwards)
Ochaco – “Gravity” by Coldplay
Mirio – “Hello” by Lionel Richie
