This means that the likes of Shin Tamura, Ryota Kobayashi, and Ryo Kitamura will be reprising their roles as Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki respectively.
It finally looks like there’s going to be some light at the end of the tunnel for these lot though! Hopefully, by the time December rolls around, the show gets its moment to smash it and go Plus Ultra once again!
