Apparently changes made by quirks can be passed along genetically even if the quirk itself was not. So you can inherit physical changes like horse or bird features without having an actual horse/bird quirk and then get a completely separate quirk along with it.

That's overthinking it a bit. It's just another case of quirk combination. Just like Todoroki's father has flame control and mother has ice control and as result Todoroki has a combined quirk that gives him control over fire and ice, one of the horse girl's parent has "look like humanoid horse" quirk, the other has "horn control" quirk and as a result she has the combined "look like humanoid horse with horn control" quirk. Same deal with Tokoyami, just with shadow and bird quirks.

I haven't watched the very latest episode but Pony is also a Japanese (or half-Japanese maybe, can't recall) American- she's not a Japanese native, and Japanese is her second language so she's not great at it. 1-B got all of the foreign students. The dragon scales guy from 1-B is Chinese.

Judging by her English pronunciation in the episode, she somehow ended up with two second languages and no first one

anime is not good


in the most recent episode i didn't realize pony was supposed to be speaking english until another character commented on it. i thought honenuki's va did a decently passable attempt though

Yeah, shame that they couldn't/didn't get a VA with better English pronunciation.

Seven idiots and a bear walk into a dragon's lair.



I don't watch much anime and I vastly prefer the dub so I'm curious how nonsensical that segment's going to be in the English version.

It was pretty bad. The first "English" line she delivers at least is incomprehensible.

It's a bit part, I don't know why they don't do more cross-promotional stuff for characters like these with bilingual pop singers or vtubers.

Aoi Yuuki is a frog and a pony I think asking her to be also an english is a little much

That's a rough pull because the gag is that Pony's Japanese isn't very good and Monoma is telling her offensive stuff to say.

Who voiced her before and why did they have to swap actresses?

Kaede Hondo played her before and she was recast probably because it's an incredibly minor part and they already had Aoi Yuuki on hand plus who knows what it's like to wrangle a VA for a couple lines during Covid Times. Also it's probably cheaper to just get Aoi Yuuki to do it.
