It’s the time of the year when I can’t leave the house without a towel. And since I’ll also be wearing a mask, hot days are going to come.

My Hero Academia

Kawaguchi Sensei, who helped on My Hero, has a new series starting! Personally, I think this is the most attractive art out there right now! I’m excited!
