The ship between Deku and Ochaco has a green flag from one side. It’s confirmed in My Hero Academia manga and anime that Ochaco has a crush on Deku. Ochaco’s screen time mostly focuses on Deku and her feelings for him. Many characters know about Ochaco’s feelings towards Deki.

Ochaco seemed protective against Toga when she confessed her love for Midoriya. She attempts to help Deku to make him notice her. Deku also notices her affection toward him.

There are many times Deku becomes flustered when he talks with Ochaco, unlike other female or male characters. Even when he talks to her on phone, he blushes. So, this is most likely the canon ship and Deku will probably end up with Ochaco.

Deku & Bakugo’s Relationship

The relationship between the characters Deku and Bakugo in My Hero Academia is portrayed as complex and dynamic. Initially rivals, with Bakugo regularly bullying and belittling Deku, they grow to understand and respect each other over time.

The series has not hinted at any romantic feelings between these two characters. There is more focus on their development as heroes and their friendship. Furthermore, their relationship is more akin to rivals, friends, and allies.

There isn’t an ounce of romantic feeling in Bakugo, and he might be asexual for the time being. He only likes to fight and focuses on becoming stronger.

As romance is not the focus of this series yet, Deku x Ochaco might still have some time left in the series for the build-up for their ships. However, it will be on the author’s discretion on how he decides to conclude the journey of these characters.
