The artist goes viral for drawing his favorite My Hero Academia characters as a funny Cartoon Network cartoon.
My Hero Academia has come a long way since its debut, and the Kohei Horikoshi series has only grown in light of its hit anime. The TV series is thriving these days as the fifth season progresses in its first arc and fans are on the lookout for everything that is happening.
Of course, this means the fandom is living with all kinds of tributes online, but one fan and artist went high with art that transformed Deku and the Class 1-A students into Cartoon Network protagonists.
La Verdad Noticias shares the art below, along with some curiosities you should know about the creator of Boku no Hero and his successful shonen manga. The original art is on Twitter and currently has gone viral with over 15,000 retweets.
My Hero Academia Cartoon Network style
The art was done by Twitter user Doodlelot, as you can see below. The artist decided it was time to reinvent My Hero Academia in a very different style than what we are used to.
That’s why My Toony Academia (as the fan named) is a kawaii and adorable anime now. This makeover proved that our UA Academy heroes can easily transcend the boundaries of Japanese animation at the hands of BONES.
As you can see, the artist reinvented the best fighters from My Hero Academia as Cartoon Network superstars. The cartoon makeover clashes with the usual Class 1-A anime version.
From Bakugo Katsuki to Ochaco Uraraka, these animated redesigns are pretty perfect, so we must congratulate Doodlelot on their work. In this first sketch, fans can find Denki and Kirishima posing with a frustrated Bakugo. The trio looks so chaotic, and Kirishima’s Crocs make this drawing a masterpiece.
The second piece focuses on the League of Villains because every hero needs an enemy to fight. Eri is the only exception, as the cinnamon roll is colorfully displayed in this sketch. But as for Toga and Overhaul, they look terrifying in this shot even though Shigaraki takes the award in the first place.
As for the rest, the My Hero Academia anime sketches show tons of heroes with Midoriya Izuku “Deku” often taking center stage. Others like Tokoyami, Tsuyu, and Jiro also appear. Each design fits the series perfectly, so we can’t say we’re against a cartoon crossover for MHA.
What anime is Cartoon Network broadcasting?
Cartoon Network is known in Latin America for being a channel that broadcasts a large number of classic anime such as Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, among many more. In 2021 it broadcasts Pokémon Journeys.
Although Cartoon Network is a channel remembered for anime (not being its specialty), it currently has programming blocks called Adult Swim and Toonami, where you will find anime series such as Inuyasha, Yu Yu Hakusho, Astroboy, Los Caballeros del Zodiaco, and Gundam Wing.
Although Toonami went off the air, in 2020 the Crunchyroll platform confirmed its return by broadcasting modern series such as Dragon Ball Super, Mob Psycho 100 (from the creator of One Punch Man), and the famous winter 2021 anime called Dr. Stone. Maybe, My Hero, Academia will debut on the channel one day?
