Kirishima: An Introduction
Eijiro Kirishima, as you might have seen on Kirishima fanart, is well-known for his red-dyed hair after he got enrolled in that hero’s high school
Before studying there, his hair was black and wasn’t as spiky as his current appearance. He has a muscular built with average height.
Eijirou has short eyebrows and a small wound scar upon his right eyes. His eyes are red, matching his hair color.
On his daily uniform, it seems impossible to see his muscular body.
His young-yet-athletic body will be shown once he wears his hero costume.
The costume is mostly in red and black, with additional red gear-shaped pads on his shoulders.
Kirishima also wears an abstract-shaped strap which elongates from his left shoulder to his right belt.
His belt has an ‘R’ initial on the center, colored red.
For the lower-part clothing, Kirishima has baggy pants in black, same-color boots, and a ripped shirt that is bent to his belt. His chest is left bare.
He wears eccentric face wear, which is a wired guard protecting his face minimally.
Although he has the same last name with Ayato Kirishima in Tokyo Ghoul series, the two characters’ personalities are pretty much distinct from each other.
Ayato, the brother of Touka Kirishima, has an arrogant and unpleasant attitude.
At the same time, Eijiro from this series is portrayed as a responsible, honest, and empathetic teen, making it contrast with those Tokyo Ghoul’s Kirishimas.
Kirishima is also a helpful person, and he’ll regret every time he cannot be his friends’ aid. Eijiro is considered as loyal and dedicated towards his friends, too.
Sometimes he’s very hard on himself, so he doesn’t become other’s burden. Hence, that spirit makes him always to improve his strengths.
Kirishima sees himself as someone who is lacking ability.
Moreover, when he saw his friend, Mina Ashido, stopped bullying during his time in junior high school, he felt that he’s a dull person.
He is a lively person. Even though, at times, he could quickly felt down.
Eijiro Kirishima and Mina Ashido
Many fans are shipping this Kirishima x Mina couple; some of them even make the couple’s fan art and write fanfictions about them.
Both characters attended the same junior high school, and Mina, despite her struggle in studies, was always appraised for her incredible physical appearance and outgoing personality – which perfectly match today’s definition of a pro hero in the series.
This is very contradicting to Kirishima’s condition, that’s why he is not confident.
He then met Mina while he was supposed to be saving his classmate from Gigantomachia.
Unfortunately, he didn’t dare to move, so Mina defeated the villain herself instead. Kirishima later apologized to Mina for his cowardly act.
Both characters then took U.A. High School admission test and got approved. Since then, their relationship improved with the new traits of Kirishima.
At this moment, Eijiro vows that he will leave his old self and told the girl that he’d be a regretless hero.
