My Hero Academia: 10 anime characters that are like Shota Aizawa

My Hero Academia is set in the future, where supernatural Quirks are common. These Quirks are not easy to control and use for good, so future professional heroes can attend schools like UA and learn all about heroism from teachers like Shota Aizawa. Shota is the teacher of class 1-A, and he takes this duty very seriously.

Shota Aizawa, aka Eraser Head, is not known for his warm charisma or humor. Instead, he is viewed as an intelligent and quietly optimistic teacher who wants to see his 20 students succeed. He believes in them, but is unwilling to admit it, which makes him a bit of a tsundere at times. To the fans of My Hero Academia That you like Eraser Head are sure to like a handful of similar anime characters too.

10 Naberius Kalego is Eraser Head’s twin (Welcome to demon school, Iruma-Kun!)

Naberius Kalego is very similar to Shota Aizawa. It’s as if these two characters were separated at birth and then placed in similar franchises. Welcome to Demon School! It stars a boy without powers who is enrolled in a school with superpowers, which is similar to what happens to Izuku at UA

Iruma and Izuku have similar classroom teachers, Naberius Kalego and Eraser Head, and these irritable teachers mean well, despite their stern and humorless nature. They are intelligent and insightful teachers who want the best for their students, but are reluctant to admit it.

9 Zangetsu could have inspired Eraser Head (Bleach)my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 1

Zangetsu is the zanpakuto spirit of the protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki, but it may not be just that. After all, Zangetsu bears a strong resemblance to King Yhwach of the Quincy. Regardless, Zangetsu may have served as the inspiration for Eraser Head, given their similar appearances, personalities, and roles in their respective anime series.

Zangetsu doesn’t joke around or offer a shoulder to cry on, but on the other hand, he will teach Ichigo all kinds of things before the battle, and he’s very insightful as a teacher. Sometimes, however, Zangetsu may be missing, and Ichigo’s inner Hollow will take his place. Or maybe, they are one and the same.

7 Ebisu es un mentor jonin sin sentido (Naruto)my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 3

Ebisu isn’t as powerful or memorable as the other Naruto masters, like Kakashi and Jiraiya, but he still knows what he’s doing. Furthermore, he bravely faced the Six Paths of Pain in Shippuden, which was his best moment. It’s not all talk.

Ebisu is a strict but caring mentor to young Konohamaru, and once helped Naruto practice chakra techniques during the Chunin Exam arc until Jiraiya took over. He’s an outspoken jonin who puts duty first, and that may remind fans of My Hero Academia to Eraser Head. They could get along if they ever meet.

6 Benimaru Shinmon taught Shinra and Arthur to fight.my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 4

Benimaru Shinmon is a powerful fire soldier captain who has nothing to fear from any Infernal or cult dressed in white, although he does have a remarkably listless demeanor, given his incredible power-up abilities. He will only fight to defend Asakusa, preferring not to get involved in anything else.

Still, Benimaru will fight if innocent lives are at stake, and on one occasion he also worked with Joker. In other scenes, Benimaru proved to be a slightly abrasive but highly effective teacher to Arthur and Shinra, teaching them some new tricks to use in battle. Eraser Head would have done the same instead.

5 Kento Nanami es frío y distante (Jujutsu Kaisen)my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 5

Eraser Head tends to be more like other anime masters, but can also be similar to high-ranking professionals of any kind, such as the jujutsu wizard Kento Nanami. Both men are seasoned professionals who are adept at keeping the streets safe, but not terribly charismatic about it.

This makes them great in the eyes of many viewers, and Kento has little patience for frivolous nonsense, which Eraser Head can relate to. Both characters are willing to serve as mentors or at least protect the young protagonist of shonen, and Yuji and Izuku appreciate it. They also have a notable lack of sentimentality, viewing their respective careers as mere work and nothing more.

Wing is a methodical and detailed teacher who does not miss a thing, like Head of Eraser, and trusts that his students learn their lessons well. However, Wing does not always lead them by the hand, as these students must succeed or fail on their own merits.

3 Kojiro Shinomiya is a tough but fair culinary instructor (Food fight!)my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 7

Culinary anime Food Wars! takes place in an elite institute, which makes it more or less similar to My Hero Academia, but for the food. At one point, Soma and his teammates undergo a week-long training sequence at a hotel, and one of their trainers is Totsuki’s former student Kojiro Shinomiya.

Kojiro was tough but fair, and he was hoping that the meek Megumi Tadokoro would end up becoming a great chef one day. Later, he privately trained Megumi to help her further improve her cooking and take on the members of Central in seasons 3 and 4.

2 Askeladd taught Thorfinn some vital lessons (Vinland Saga)my hero academia 10 personajes de anime que son como shota aizawa 8

Askeladd was almost a strange father figure to Thorfinn, instructing the boy in the ways of combat and survival skills, and Thorfinn even learned to speak more than one language. Askeladd is a tough and cold warrior on the outside, but he also has a caring side, mostly due to his Welsh ancestry. He also has a soft spot for Thorfinn that he doesn’t want to admit.
