My Hero Academia has many hero training schools in Japan in addition to UA High School, each with its own qualities and competition. Shiketsu High School, famous for its strict rules and well-trained students, has a rivalry with UA and has produced famous characters in the series. Ketsubutsu Academy and Seiai Academy are two other schools that have appeared in the series, with Ketsubutsu having a one-sided rivalry with UA and Seiai showing strong teamwork during the Provisional Hero License Exam.
While most of the main characters of My Hero Academy is associated with High School UAWhether staff or students, this is not the only school in Japan that trains heroes. UA is often touted as the best, but most of the characters making that claim are understandably biased. However, in addition to UA, there are several other schools that appear in both the manga and anime. Other hero schools don’t get as much attention, but that doesn’t mean they’re worse. They are spread across different parts of the country and sometimes have slightly different goals than the UA
Hero schools can be public or private, although the most prominent schools appear to be public schools. They also tend to have exceptionally low acceptance rates, such as UA’s acceptance rate of less than 1%, simply because of the sheer number of applications they receive each year. Like many competing schools, rivalry has arisen among the students of these hero schools, and even most of the graduates who become Professionals seem to have a proud connection to the school. their. Here’s how each of these fields stacks up.
1 Shiketsu . High School
After UA, Shiketsu High School is said to have the best reputation among hero schools. Its name is derived from a Japanese word for “Hero”, with the kanji characters reversed. Located in the west of Japan, opposite UA’s location to the east, the two schools appear to have a rivalry similar to college sports in the US. Shiketsu also gets the most attention after UA, with famous characters like Camie Utsushimi, Todoroki’s rival Inasa Yoarashi, and Seiji Shishikura, who possesses the extremely disgusting “meatball” Quirk. Like most schools, Shiketsu was first entered into the Provisional Hero License Round, where students from different schools compete to receive temporary licenses.
Only two of Shiketsu’s five students receive temporary permits, although this is partly due to Himiko Toga’s impersonation of Camie causing her to fail the exam altogether. One of these two is Nagamasa Mora, the class president of a second year student with an ability based on hair. Inasa and Camie later appear in remedial courses alongside Todoroki and Bakugo, dealing with some children losing control with their extremely powerful Quirks. Seiji attended the remedial course as an observer, along with an unnamed teacher. The Shiketsu students will reappear in the final war, fighting alongside the pros and students from UA.
Despite being forced to take a remedial course, Shiketsu’s students appear to be very well-trained, capable of using their Quirks skillfully. Students at Shiketsu are not allowed to have personal relationships with other students, making the school especially strict compared to UA
2 Ketsubutsu Academy
The next largest school is Ketsubutsu Academy (its name reflects a Japanese word meaning “heroic figure”), which also claims a rivalry with UA. However, the competition seems much more one-sided than between UA and Shiketsu. During the Provisional Hero License Exam, Ketsubutsu’s second-year class is led by Ms. Joke, an acquaintance of Aizawa’s who has the ability to cause uncontrollable laughter. Students from Ketsubutsu have traditionally eliminated candidates with UA temporary licenses during the exam, taking advantage of the UA’s televised Sports Festival to gather information about UA students’ Quirks in advance.
Some of Ketsubutsu Academy’s most prominent students include Yo Shindo and Tatami Nakagame, who appear in the manga chapters following the Mystic Liberation War arc. During the exam, they worked closely with two other students; Shikkui Makabe, who has blue skin and has an Object-hardening Quirk; and Itejiro Toteki, who uses the Boomerang ability that allows him to influence the trajectory of objects, whether they move through the air or even underground. Shindo is responsible for destroying much of the testing area in the early stages with his earthquake powers, separating the students from their teammates and making movement much more difficult. All four of these students were then second-year students and thus had significantly more experience, so it is not surprising that most passed the exam.
Shindo and Nakagame have appeared a few more times since the exam. They are seen collaborating to research their hero creation and appear to have started dating at some point. Most recently, the pair were sent to help round up civilians and take them to the fortified Ketsubutsu Academy as an evacuation shelter, leading to a confrontation with the escaped villain Muscular. Makabe and Toteki are also briefly seen performing the same mission elsewhere, indicating that they have also received temporary clearance. Yo Shindo reappears in the final war, helping capture the Skeptic villain.
3 Seiai Academy
Seiai Academy only appears in the anime, expanding the Provisional Hero Licensing Exam to introduce schools beyond Shiketsu and Ketsubutsu. All of the Seiai Academy students shown on screen are female, implying that Seiai may be a female-only hero school. Seiai’s team is led by Saiko Intelli, whose IQ powers enhance her intelligence and planning abilities after drinking tea. Many of the other students introduced also had more support abilities instead of combat-oriented abilities like most of UA’s Class 1-A. They carry out an insidious plan to trap some UA students in a building and make them powerless, but Momo, Jiro, Asui, and Shoji get past the trap and make it through the first stage. Ten students of Seiai were shown, and since four UA students passed, only two of them were able to avoid disqualification. However, Seiai’s students displayed some of the best teamwork seen in the exam, so underestimating them would be a mistake.
4 Seijin High School
Seijin High School, another anime-only school, is the least known of the schools named. All of Seijin’s students are seen wearing ninja costumes, suggesting that the school may be aimed at training students in traditional ninja techniques. Thus, neither their faces nor their names were revealed. Seijin’s students attempted to corner Todoroki into the industrial area of the Temporary Hero Licensing Exam arena, but their attack was not well planned and he was able to defeat it alone. six of them. It is unclear if any other students from the school were present and, if so, if they were able to pass. While their poor performance against Todoroki certainly didn’t make Seijin look good, the students seemed to have demonstrated a solid understanding of their Quirk and a willingness to take advantage of their opponent’s weakness by using tools they know Todoroki can’t melt.
5 Isamu Academy
The students of Isamu Academy appeared in an OVA (Original Animated Movie, essentially a “Direct-to-DVD” anime special) while visiting and touring UA High School. It is known to be another hero school, although its location in Japan is not specified. One of the students, Habuko Mongoose, has been friends with Tsuyu Asui since high school. Habuko actually appeared in an Asui-themed bonus chapter in the manga, implying that Isamu Academy is actually canon for both the anime and the My Hero Academia manga. Habuko has a snake-like head and possesses a dazzling and paralyzing Quirk, similar to a mythical basil. Other students appearing in the OVA include Dadan Tadan, whose Quirk is based on sweat like Bakugo, Romero Fujimi, whose Quirk can turn people into zombies, and Kashiko Sekigai, whose Quirk can map out areas around in impressive detail.
There are many ways one can become a pro hero, and each of these schools offers a different path to achieving that ultimate goal. No matter which hero school a student attends, intense training will be a key part of the program, both physically and academically, to ensure that the student is capable of handling anything. happen their way. Since these students are trusted to work with professionals in a number of situations, professional heroes must also respect the work these hero schools do. No problem My Hero Academy the school one attends, whether it is High School UA or one of the other schools, the ultimate goal will always be to save people when in trouble, and that makes them great.
