8 Youngest Students in Class 1-A (My Hero Academia)

There is no end to the awe-inspiring creativity in the creation of Japanese anime. My Hero Academia is another series in a long line of gripping stories that capture millions of fans from all over the world, and fans love the eclectic mix of characters that make up class 1-A. My Hero Academia is the superhero manga epic that comes from the mind of Kōhei Horikoshi.

The story follows a boy named Izuku Midoriya. He exists in a world where super-powered beings are the norm, and he’s the one who’s the outcast as a non-superhero. Japan’s greatest hero, All Might, recognizes the potential in Izuku and enrolls him into a high school to begin his superhero training in hopes that one day he will become his successor. What follows next is your classic high school hijinks and mischief but this time with a super-powered twist!

Minoru Mineta was 15-years-old when first introduced in the show. He’s a short teenage boy with a large head, puffy cheeks, and a small stubby nose. His awkward proportions are probably very relatable for many young and growing high schoolers. He sports a purple shirt, mask, yellow cape, boots, and gloves.

Relating again to many young high school boys, Minoru is known for being infamously perverted to such an extreme that he’s become widely unpopular with the girls and even the boys.

Eijiro Kirishima was 15-years-old when he came to class 1-A. You can’t tell in that baggy suit, but he hides a muscular build and permanently dyed red hair. His hero costume is made of shoulder pads that are red and gear-shaped. He has an “R” in the center of his belt, which stands for his hero name, “Red Riot.”

Eijiro embraces masculinity and considers himself to be a man’s man. He’s an outgoing, confident kid who tries to exude a sense of nobility and bravery. He lives up to his ideals and is known to put others before himself.

Fumikage Tokoyami was 15-years-old when introduced. One look at his appearance, and you know he’s cut from a different cloth. His head is of a blackbird, meant to resemble a crow or raven. There aren’t many situations in which a 15-year-old can look formidable, but when Fumikage puts on his black robe with a dark purple tint, he becomes a different animal.

He’s a reserved character, as his look would suggest. He’s noble and not afraid to march to the beat of his own drum. It’s only when he teams up with others that he values the art of communication and makes sure to help his classmates with positive encouragement.

Ochaco Uraraka was 15-years-old when introduced to us. According to her classmates, she’s “the most laid back girl,” best-known for her bubbly, inviting personality. Of all the names high schoolers fling at each other, “laid back” is pretty good!

Don’t let her disarming looks fool you. She’s cultivated her skills and is a pretty efficient combatant. She earned 3rd place in the U.A. Entrance Exam. Her ability to use Zero Gravity to reduce her weight, boosting her agility, makes her a challenge when she combines it with her gifted hand-to-hand prowess.

Koji Koda has a name fit for a superhero. Everybody knows that the best superheroes start with the same letter in their first and last names. But we should give an honorable mention to Bruce Wayne! Koji was also 15-years-old when introduced to class 1-A.

He is a physically imposing presence, but underneath, he’s a teddy bear. He’s not one to speak often, as he prefers sign language to communicate with his peers. Despite his knack for combat, he has a heart of gold and always opts for peace.

Tsuyu Asui has no problem wearing her heart on her sleeve and letting her contemporaries know what’s on her mind. She’s blunt, aloof, and gets right to the point. That in itself can be a superpower in our society!

Tsuyu is skilled in close and long-range combat, making her a threat to any opponent and demanding respect. Her style is agility-based, using her crafty evasive maneuvers and elusive style to confuse her opponents enough to land one of her devastating leg kicks. She’s one of the strongest females in her entire class.

Did You Know?

Her Frog Quirk gives her a frog’s physiology. It might not seem that threatening, but the contrary is true. She can stick to walls, enhance her swimming ability, camouflage, and extend her powerful tongue up to 20 meters.

Mezo Shoji is the youngest student of Class 1-A!

Shoji came aboard at just 15-years-old. Judging by his superhero-like image, it’s understandable if you were surprised. Shoji is another reason we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Despite the image, he’s a gentle giant and has the sought-after trait of cooperation.

Despite his age, he has a maturity that keeps a good head on his shoulders. He won’t fold under the weight of emotional impulse, which is one of the most important qualities in combat.

Did You Know?

On top of Mezo’s elite strength, speed, intellect, durability, stamina, reflexes, and so forth, his Quirk enables him to produce a set of tentacles. At the tips of his tentacles, he can create any part of his body he chooses, opening up creative ways to triumph over opponents. That means the only thing that limits this gifted fighter is his imagination.
