A Mediocre My Hero Series (MMHS): My Hero: Yūei Kōkō! (Chapter ii)

by Canadian_Fish

Canadian_Fish --Fixed 10/3/19--
Two weeks after the Entrance Exams, Hosu, Japan
-Sokudo woke up at his desk, with his Alto Sax in one hand and a sheet of music sliding from the other. He was a little confused at first, but then remembered that he'd been practicing for the concert his friends had planned, set for next week, but there was of course a Plan B if he actually got accepted into Yuuei.
That's when he remembered that the letters of acceptance or denial would come in today. He quickly set his instrument and sheet down before sliding down the railing of the stairs and running outside.
He yanked open their black mailbox and looked for his letter, and there it sat, above all of the other mail, white with a red button that had Yuuei's logo engraved in it, the UA surrounded by their motto:
PLUS ULTRA!/プラスウルトラ!. It had his address and name, noticeably not having any markings showing where exactly it came from.
"Jinn! the letter's here!" He called, walking inside and shutting the door
Jinn yelled an 'OK' from his room, and Sokudo ran into his room, closed the door, and gingerly opened the envelope.
A metal disc fell onto the carpet. Sokudo eyed it suspiciously. It was a stainless steel disc with a blue light in the center that hummed softly. He shook his head and reached back into the envelope, but as soon as he did, a projection of a hamster in a well-kempt suit, sitting in a black leather chair behind a wooden desk popped out of the disc, and it scared about ten years off of Sokudo's life.
"Hello, Hikari Sokudo! As you can see, I am a projection!" the hamster said, as Sokudo noticed a scar over its left eye, and his eyes focused themselves on it.
"I'm Nezu, the current principle of UA High."

"If we are correct, you participated in this year's Entrance Exams..."
Nezu shuffled some papers...
"Your score on the Written Exam was 80%"

Sokudo exhaled, that was a relief. But there was still the practical exams...
"And now, your Practical Exam..."

Nezu scanned the paper...
"You had 56 Villain Points. However, there was an unspoken factor, Rescue Points.
"Rescue points are gained by showing your ability to be a true hero, saving the other heroes from danger, regardless of your current standings. You had 15 rescue points. Please watch the footage we have prepared for you."

It was a showing of him punching through the robot before. Sokudo hadn't really though much of how it had gone down until now. His right arm was engulfed in spiraling goldish-orange flames, and he shot up to the Zero-Point, dashing through it and leaving a hole in it's head. That gained him fifteen points.
A showing of the leaderboard followed:

  1. Sokudo
  2. Amai
  3. Kasai
  4. Deans
  5. Aka
  6. Keriere
  7. Kochi
  8. Iwa
  9. Eiko
  10. Keiko
"Hikari Sokudo..."
"We have taken note of your agility, speed, endurance, and overall combat ability.
"We see much potential in these factors,
"so I shall say it again."
"Hikari Sokudo,
"Welcome,"
"To UA High."

The projection shut off, leaving Sokudo to sit. Jinn walked ins shortly after
"Did you make it?"
"I...
"I made it!" He laughed, grinning
Sokudo pulled the rest out of the letter. First was some basic information, such as how the school started in the spring, what class he was in ("
1-A/Hero Studies/Homeroom: Erasurehead, Shouto/Class number: No. 4"), a map of Yuuei, and a student ID card, a paper requesting his suit and pants size (he filled it out and had Jinn stick it in an envelope to mail) and lastly, the requirements for a hero suit. It was mostly boring stuff: "Your hero suit is an important part of your identity, whether you choose to conceal it or leave it open... Pita pita pita pita Congrats on making it into Hero Studies pita pita pita pita Either a sketch or a writing, or both. The choice is up to you! Note: If you add boots, jumpsuit, shirt, pants, or a belt, leave a size.

"Well? What now?" Jinn asked
"I'm gonna have to fill all the paperwork out, you'll mail it, and then I'm a hero. Ta-da." Sokudo said sarcastically.


March, at the gates of Yuuei Koko, Musutafu, Japan.

Sokudo stood at the gates of the number one Hero School in all of Japan, walking under a blue post and looking at the garden, statues, and crowd of students, all a sea of grey and green. They were asked to stay on the cobblestone path, which was lined with stone figureheads of the past principals of Yuuei. Behind them was maybe an acre, used simply for decoration, with a garden on one side, a few bushes, and some cherry blossoms, some stood against the wall, while others lined the sides of the path, and a few students caught the falling petals, if they got lucky.
Sokudo was so entranced by the scenery, he nearly slipped, but caught himself. He eventually made his way to the red door with a gold number 1 over it, and entered that way. He took one of the packed elevators and got off at the second floor, and took an almost immediate left into Erasurehead's homeroom.
As he sat in seat four, he noticed almost everyone was sitting on their desk, chatting, reading, drawing, or something. But then a boy with spiky brown hair would walk around to them and tell them to not sit on the desk. He accomplished nothing, and eventually just sat down.
A different boy with somewhat short, left-swept brown hair approached him and sat down next to him, on the desk.
"What's your name?" the boy asked him
"Sokudo, yours?"
"Kasai. What's your Quirk?"
"I'd rather not-"

"Quiet." said a man from the front of the room, silencing everyone.
The man had wild, long black hair, a poorly-trimmed beard, and a white scarf wrapped around his neck loosely. He had on a worn black jumpsuit and a scar under his right eye. He looked like he hadn't slept in years, and he'd suddenly popped out from a yellow sleeping bag with a squeezable bottle of apple sauce.
On the board he wrote his name; it was somewhat sloppy, but no one said anything.

Mr. Aizawa
Sokudo felt like he'd heard that name before...
"Okay, everyone head to the locker rooms, change into the gym uniforms, and meet me behind Gym Gamma. Be rational please." Aizawa said
The uniform was a blue collared jacket with the letters UA on it, but the A's legs stretched to the bottom of the pants. Many people changed how their uniforms appeared almost instantly. When they were done, a few collars were in the trash. Sokudo had simply unzipped his jacket to reveal his black workout shirt.
Once everyone got outside, some people asked why they weren't going to the reception party, to which Aizawa responded with,
"We're not wasting our time with anything irrational."
He proceeded to tell them about the Quirk Apprehension Test, a required Hero Course test that was recorded for "important reasons". Basically, if they came in last, they would be expelled. And after saying that, Aizawa lined them up. First off was him and Kasai, in the 50 Meter Dash.
"ready..." Aizawa announced
Sokudo tuned his setting up to lightspeed. A straining but good start, he felt his calves straining almost immediately as dust blew away from the ground, which Aizawa glanced at for a split second.
"go.."
Sokudo shot off, blazing across the dash, and finished literally faster than the eye could see. He quickly patted out flames on his pants (He'd turned them into shorts, but it didn't matter) and shirt.
"Sokudo: 00.00.0 milliseconds! That's a record!"
Everyone stared, in shock. Sokudo didn't like this...
"Kasai: 00.03.83"
Sokudo went back to the group, and so did Kasai.

Quirk Apprehension Test: 50 Mtr Dash Rslts:
Amai: 00.01.00 (Used Quirk)
Deans: 00.02.52( Turned into Hedgehog, it was blue, not sure why everyone laughed...)
Aka: 00.00.02 (Turned into Cheetah)
Iwa: 00.00.07
Keriere: 00.04.74
Hachi: 00.05.52 (Flew)
Koichi: 00.03.52
Keiko: 00.05.63
Now onto the grip strength test, in this you will grab this device, and attempt to pull the lever down to your hand, you will be measured in kg.

Sokudo walked up to the device, and squeezed, his quirk wouldn't work on this, it had to be pure muscle.
The device read 43.6 kg when he dropped it. That was good.

Kasai: 300 kg (turned metal by touching the device)
Amai: 135 kg (Used quirk)
Deans: 100 kg (turned into gorilla)
Aka: 100 kg (transformed into gorilla)
Iwa: 200 kg (broke his fingers because of the pressure of the rocks he applied to his fingers)
Keriere: 35.9 kg
Hachi: 34.2 kg
Koichi: 42.7 kg
Now onto the distance run. You will run as many laps as possible, four at a time, when one tires, another replaces them.

Sokudo, Kasai, Amai, and Deans lined up. Sokudo had to have endurance, so he set for 50 mph. (80 kmph) Kasai didn't change, Deans turned into a cheetah, and Amai lined up.
Her quirk enhances her speed and strength, but how long does it last? All QUirks have a physical limit, some more extreme than others... but what's hers?
"go.."
Two blasts of dust shot out as they took off.


*10 minutes later*
Everyone had given up except him, Amai, and Iwa, who was surfing on a rock. Amai's quirk was obviously giving in, Iwa's rock was starting to shake, and Sokudo was tiring.
Finish.. the last lap...
Boom
Speed of sound, flying at 767 mph, and then his last sputter of a double burst, and supersonic. 2000 mph (3218 kmph)
They couldn't quite calculate what he'd run, but it was far enough to go from one end of Japan and stop halfway.
He was shaking from the exerted energy and grabbed his water.
Now onto the standing long jump, jump over the sandbox to pass!
Sokudo had nothing left, so, naturally, he tripped over the sandbox.

Sokudo: failed
Kasai: pass
Amai: pass
Deans: pass
Aka: pass
Iwa: pass
Keriere: failed
Hachi: pass
Keiko: failed
Koichi: failed
Onto the repeated side steps!
Sokudo: 92
Kasai: 101
Amai: 115
Deans: 110
Aka: 110
Iwa: 300
Keriere: 130
Hachi: 89
Keiko: 50
Koichi: 83

And then, the final test.
The Ball Throw.
Sokudo pulled together everything he had. He could muster together a little, maybe enough to make a few meters at the speed of sound. Just maybe.
just barely make the ball go the speed of sound. That's all it takes.
He felt it pulling together, his arm tensing so much all the hair on his arm spiked up, and his veins felt like they were overflowing. the occasional shock, spark, or ember would fly.
He wound back.
poof
The ball went sailing.

Sokudo: 800 m
Kasai: 705.3 (Turned into rubber slingshot-thing)
Amai: 705.6
Deans: 35 (donkey)
Aka: 28 (Monkey)
Iwa: *Infinity (Surrounded by rocks, then commanded the to fly to the ends of space... so...)
Keriere: 400 (Whipped it, quite literally.)
Hachi: 15
Keiko: 100.2
Koichi: 700 (used a short wall of fire, the heat carried the ball.)

Results:

  1. Sokudo
  2. Amai
  3. Kasai
  4. Iwa
  5. Koichi
  6. Keriere
  7. Deans
  8. Aka
  9. Keiko
  10. Hachi
Hachi, the bee-like dude he remembered seeing at the Entrance Exams, froze.
"oh, by the way, I lied about expulsion," Aizawa said, giving him a lot of dirty looks from a lot of different people.
"go change and then you can head home..." Aizawa said, and everyone shuffled off, except Iwa, who walked himself to Recovery Girl's office to get treatment for his fingers.

On the way back, Sokudo and Kasai had a conversation, mostly just introductions.
"So you can run really fast?" Kasai asked
"Yeah, that's about it. You can become rubber or metal?" Sokudo chuckled
"Something along those lines, heh. This is my turn though." Kasai grinned, waving to him and turning left
"See ya'," Sokudo replied
And so they turned opposite directions, Sokudo for the bus stop, Kasai for his neighborhood. The cliff looked westward as they turned, facing the red sunset that was the symbol of Japan.
