Playing at being human is an adjustment, but not as much of one as Bazz was expecting, honestly. He gets a job, an apartment, a steady routine. A couple of people look at him askance at first, but that’s more or less familiar anyway and Bazz doesn’t give a damn. The human world is so open, so absent of the rules and structure of being a Sternritter, and Bazz will admit he spends most of the first few months glorying in it.

And then an angry ghost almost takes his head off.

It’s been four years since their U.A. graduation and they’ve been kicking around Tōkyō trying to figure out their lives, trying to make enough money to get ahead in the world. So they take down a group of villains without too much trouble, nothing more than a few minor injuries, nothing out of the ordinary. It should be an easy paycheck. It’s not until they get back to Aizawa’s apartment that they realise there’s something wrong.
