What was the inspiration for the creator of My Hero Academia to make the anime’s tender moments

My Hero Academia is one of the anime and manga series of the moment, and it is that, in recent years, it has presented us with amazing moments in which its characters managed to connect with fans, and its protagonist plays a very important role in this, as there is a strong inspiration for each of the cute moments we see in the anime.

Something that seems quite striking to us is that his story manages to capture the attention of viewers very quickly because the characters are extremely interesting and different, especially when it comes to Izuku Midoriya, since his story goes very deep, leaving us see even part of his childhood where he shows great admiration for his idol All Might.

From this stage of his life, Midoriya intends to be a hero despite not having special abilities, and the truth is that he has always had someone who has supported him in each of his steps, his mother.

Deku’s childhood has many touching moments, and the creator of the anime, Kōhei Horikoshi, has decided to reveal what inspired him to make one of the cutest scenes of all in My Hero Academia.

According to information from a Twitter user called MetiNTBG, in an interview Kōhei Horikoshi has talked about the 11th volume of the Boku No Hero or My Hero Academia manga, and explains that one of the anime’s scenes is based on one of the unforgettable moments his childhood. Next, we leave you everything Horikoshi has said on this topic.

Oh! There are many moments to tell. For example in volume 11, when Deku was little, he and his mom have a scene together in reference to the time they both play. I have to say that I used to do the same with my mom when I was a child, and we used to play in the playgrounds of the parks. We called him “King of the Jungle”.

My mom would hide out at the local gyms and say “Please save me, Leo!” which was the name she used to use when we played together. I have that memory of pretending to be a Leo and playing with my mom, so I wanted to incorporate her into the story in a way. As a reader, it’s probably a meaningless scene, but for me, I cried the moment I wrote it.

This is one of the most important moments of the creator of My Hero Academia, as he recreates his childhood and remembers his mother’s love with this game. As he comments in the interview, it is so emotional for him that even tears came to his eyes when he was writing it.

This is possibly not the only moment in the anime based on his life, as Boku No Hero has some similarities to Naruto, an anime that Kōhei Horikoshi has loved forever.
