Bakugo Katsuki is one of the most complicated characters in My Hero Academia, and with a complicated character comes even more complicated parents. Luckily, series creator Kohei Horikoshi has fleshed out his world enough that even Bakugo’s parents have been given backstories.
In fact Bakugo’s parents are so fleshed out, Horikoshi released an explainer for the two and how they met in order to make fans love them even more.
According to the explainer, Bakugo gets his explosive powers from a combination of his father’s acid sweat and his mother’s Glycerin quirks. His father’s quirk isn’t too powerful but he wanted to be a pro hero too until he found more success with a career in the design industry.
The most hilarious part of their backstory, however, is this line: “When he met Mistuki through work, she came onto him hard.” This line is cute, hilarious, and further emphasizes the kind of personality she displayed in the series (and where Bakugo gets his fiery personality form).
The third season of the series is, for sure, set to adapt the School Trip arc, which follows the students of Class 1-A head to a forest in order to bring the control of their Quirks to a new level. Suddenly, the League of Villains attacks in order to kidnap one of the students and Midoriya and the others must think quickly on their feet in order to survive. But recent clues from the most recent poster of the season teases that it could beyond this into the Hideout Raid arc.
If you are eagerly waiting for season 3 of the series, it recently revealed a new trailer teasing the season as well as an image teasing the season during its official announcement. Then, of course, is the currently running manga series that has just wrapped the arc beyond this, the “Internship” arc. If that’s not enough, why not lookup Horikoshi’s original one-shot Barrage?
Along with season 3 of the anime series, a film adaptation will also open in 2018. The film will cover a story not seen in the original manga with series creator Horikoshi noting that, “Of course the movie will be filled with Class A’s great efforts, that character’s past that hasn’t been in the manga yet, flashy action scenes, and much more.” The film also revealed its first key visualdepicting a character fans have never seen before.
For those unfamiliar with My Hero Academia, the series was created by Kohei Horikoshi and has been running in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has super powers but he was born without them. Dreaming to become a superhero anyway, he’s eventually scouted by the world’s best hero All Might and enrolls in a school for professional heroes. The series has been collected into 15 volumes so far, and has been licensed by Viz Media for an English language release since 2015.
