“My Hero Academia” Anime Casts Izuku Midoriya’s Rival

Just the other day we posted some color versions of the initial character designs for the My Hero Academia anime, and now we have a new voice actor joining the cast. Weekly Shonen Jump is announcing the addition of Nobuhiko Okamoto (Eiiji Niizuma in Bakuman., Jun Arashiyama in World Trigger), who will be playing Katsuki Bakugō, protagonist Izuku Midoriya’s long-standing rival. 

 

Okamato joins the previously announced Daiki Yamashita as Midoriya and Kenta Miyake as bold superhero All Might. You can see a bit of Bakugō’s design in the pic below.
