So yknow how there's been a lot (and I mean A LOT) of talks and theories about the new my hero academia movie poster and the meaning?
Example: Todoroki is holding his hands like Dabi does, Deku is doing the Shigaraki pose but slightly down but Bakugou's doing the Kiri pose so that obviously means Kiri is the traitor.
In my opinion, Kiri's too wholesome to betray them all but that's just my opinion.
So I have another theory:
What if their poses are symbolising things they need to overcome?
For example, Todoroki's holding up the Dabi hands to symbolise him emotionally overcoming being related to a villain or finally getting help dealing with the trauma that came with both that and his childhood abuse.
And Deku doing the Shigaraki pose is kinda self-explanatory here.
Now for Bakugou doing Kiri's pose it could be multiple things:
Him finally overcoming his "not wanting friends" persona and finally accepting Kiri as his BFF (or something like that).
Could be just complete Kiribaku coming to life (finally) and him overcoming either internalized homophobia or just overcoming his entire ego and confessing.
It could also be other things but my hands hurt from typing.
Judge this however you want, I might add more to it later so yeah.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
