U.A. High School Rocked By Admissions Scandal

MUSUTAFU, Japan — U.A. High School was rocked by allegations earlier today that a student was accepted to the highly prestigious school for future heroes due to a bribe given to a faculty member. The school has denied the allegations but a number of former students and prominent bloggers have suggested the claim has merit.

“I’m seen students accepted to this school with no previous records suggesting they even have a quirk,” said former student Hirano Jiraiya. “How exactly do you gain a quirk right before the application? And even if you did you wouldn’t have nearly enough training to deserve to go to the top hero academy in the country.”

Twitter was also abuzz with discussion questioning inconsistencies in the U.A. High School entrance exam.

“Why is it that some students seem to know about objectives for the entrance exam never told to students at all, objectives that are for some reason worth many more points than the normal ones?” one tweet read.

“Is it really that they have heroic instincts, implausible good luck, or did they in fact get tipped off by a faculty member?”

Experts on the economics of super-heroism and superhero education weighed in with their perspective on the controversy.

“The public tends to think superheroes are well paid, but that is rarely the case. Heroes often incur significant debt and lawsuits when active. A hero reaching the end of his or her career often have little money to fall back on in retirement and need to take a post-retirement job like teaching, which doesn’t pay great either. The former hero’s greatest asset can be the ability to influence applications for highly desirable and selective student slots at a top hero school like U.A.” said Dr. Minori Hasimoto, Professor of Economics at Kyoto University.

Anime Maru reached out to current U.A. High School faculty for comment.

“No real hero would accept a bribe, you can trust me dear citizen!” faculty member All Might told Anime Maru while tapping his solid gold cane on the ground. He then walked to the faculty parking lot and got into his Toyota 2000 GT.
