Today is fan favorite Shoto Todoroki’s birthday, and to celebrate, My Hero Academia released a new promo video for the manga that highlights the upcoming volume during Todoroki’s birthday.

While he may not be the main character of the series, Todoroki is still one of the most popular characters from the manga and the anime. So, it makes sense that he’s being given special treatment by the series.

Along with the trailer, fans are also celebrating his birthday with lots of new fan art and well wishes on social media.

Shoto Todoroki’s Popularity

Todoroki, Deku, and Bakugo are considered by many to be the big three of not only Class 1-A but also of the entire series. This was also canonized in a way by being the main characters in the third My Hero Academia movie.

Their big three status makes sense as they’re considered the strongest heroes-in-training of their class.

While Deku and Bakugo as rivals solidify them as the strongest, Todoroki is no slouch, being the son of current #1 Pro Hero Endeavor.

Strength aside, Todoroki is also officially one of the series’ most popular characters.

In the annual popularity poll for the manga, the big three of the series have always been at the top of the standings.

Despite never reaching the top spot, Todoroki has never placed below third, meaning he continues to have a lot of fans.

If you follow the series, it’s easy to see why. Todoroki’s complicated family dynamics with Endeavor, along with his unique fire-and-ice power, definitely makes him one of the series’ best characters.
