Soft Spoken Hero Finds His Voice in "My Hero Academia"
If you’ve been following My Hero Academia, you’ve probably noticed a tough-looking fellow in Class 1-A by the name of Koji Koda, aka the “Petting Hero, Anima”, but it’s only with Episode 36 that this kind-hearted character finally gets a chance to speak.
Koji Koda is played by voice actor Takuma Nagatsuka, who noted that despite Koji’s intimidating appearance, he’s a very timid and delicate young man with a love for small animals, a sentiment which Nagatsuka tried to incorporate into his performance. Nagatsuka also observed that although Koji is so reticent that he’s only getting on-screen lines for the first time in this week’s episode, Koji is still a member of Class 1-A at U.A. High School, and so he tries his best. Plus Ultra!
