Neito Monoma might be a little obnoxious, but he's not wrong when he says that Class 1-B is worth paying attention to. Just like 1-A, they're a class full of talented heroes-in-training. They have cool quirks, fun personalities, and are overall pretty awesome. Unfortunately, they don't get the spotlight often, which means that there's a lot of trivia and details about them that even the most dedicated fans may have missed.

What are some things you didn't know about Class 1-B? If you're watching My Hero Academia, you have something in common with Pony Tsunetori - she loves anime! In fact, she loves it more than most casual fans. She went out of her way to start an in-dorm anime screening. Here's another one: did you know that Togaru Kamakiri thinks of Katsuki Bakugo as his rival? Sadly for him, there's not much chance that Bakugo reciprocates the feeling.

    Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu Has The Same Birthday As Eijiro Kirishima

But you might not have known that they have something else in common - their birthdays! Both boys were born on October 16th, making them both Libras.

    Yosetsu Awase Is Crushing On Momo Yaoyorozu 

    It's not exactly obvious from the series itself, but Yosetsu Awase has a thing for Momo Yaoyorozu of Class 1-A. His romantic feelings were confirmed in My Hero Academia: Ultra Analysis: The Official Character Guide. This puts his insistence on risking his life to save her from the Chainsaw Nomu into perspective.

    Neito Monoma Might Have A Big Moment

    Whether you love him or hate him, Neito Monoma is probably the most noticeable member of Class 1-B. But while so far he hasn't done much besides scream about wanting to overthrow Class 1-A, that may be changing soon.

    In an interview with Horikoshi about the final act of the manga, he revealed that Monoma was one of the characters who might have a big moment during the finale. What that moment will involve is a matter of speculation, but hopefully it will be worth waiting for.

    Ibara Shiozaki Is A Giant Christianity Reference

    Many of Ibara Shiozaki's attributes are subtle or not-so-subtle nods to Christianity. The first is obvious - she's often seen clasping her hands in prayer and referencing the Christian God. But there are many others references that might have slipped under the radar. 

    Her hair, which is covered in thorns, is a nod to the crown of thorns that was placed on Jesus' head when he was crucified. Her former hero name, Maria, stems from the name of the Virgin Mary. Her birthday, September 8th, is also Mary's birthday.

    Her hero costume features white robes resembling those that Jesus supposedly wore. She loves bread because it's referred to as the body of Christ, and is often served during Church communions. Her super moves, Via Dolorosa, Crucifixion, and Faith's Shield, all reference terms from the bible.
