It’s not the 16th yet here, but it is in Japan, so here I go.
Where do I even begin? Eijirou Kirishima means so much to me I can’t even put it into words. This boy has inspired me so much and has made me feel better and happier with myself as a human being. My mental state was awful a few months ago, and then I began watching My Hero Academia and instantly fell in love with this character. Everything about him was just so pure and absolutely perfect, and I couldn’t help but make him my everything. I got him multiple times on ‘which character are you’ quizzes, in which I realized I can relate to him. I looked at Kirishima and his heroic actions and think ‘hm, hey, I would do that!’, which helped me see the good in myself. Not only that, but he also proved to me that you don’t have to be a ‘main character’ or the constant center of attention in order to make a big difference to the people around you and the world.
I also relate so deeply to Kirishimas insecurities and feelings of needing to change himself. I felt the same way for such a long period of time, but My Hero Academia literally helped me through that and I feel so much better. Eijirou played such a huge role into that I can’t give it an assigned number.
Not to mention, he’s freaking adorable. Everything about him is legitimately perfect. His freaking adorable little scar, his hair, HIS CROCS, I GKEKCJDJC i LOVE him
I don’t know how to explain how one could fall so deeply in love with a fictional character, but I did, and I love that I did. He deserves it.
Happy Birthday Kirishima❤️
