Shota Aizawa is a supporting character from the anime/manga series My Hero Academia.


Shota Aizawa is a Pro Hero that goes by the name Eraserhead (given to him by fellow hero Present Mic). Unlike most heroes, he prefers working underground. He was assigned to be the Homeroom teacher for Class 1-A in U.A. High. 

He is a very strict teacher that often tells lies in order to make his students put their maximum effort into their training. He is infamous at UA for threatening students with expulsion from the school, and has expelled 154 students.
