Aizawa and Hizashi attended U.A. High school together and shared a homeroom, they became quick friends because of Hizashi's outspoken personality paired with Aizawa's quiet, moody one. Hizashi will often enthusiastically tell Aizawa something only for the other man to respond in a deadpan tone, but despite their contrast in personality, Aizawa clearly cares about Hizashi and listens when the latter speaks.
They do not have many canon interactions outside of being co-workers and fellow heroes. Even though Aizawa likes the quiet and prefers to sleep in the sleeping bag most of the time, he doesn't mind Hizashi's volume and although seems annoyed at times, never actually got angry at him.
Hizashi and Aizawa were the commentators for the U.A. Sports Festival together.
In chapter 253, Aizawa and Hizashi rides together towards Tartarus to find out that their good friend, Oboro Shirakumo, who they had thought to be dead, was actually turned into a Nomu called Kurogiri. Before the reveal Aizawa is notably tense and irritated, Hizashi touches his shoulder and says his name to calm him down. He succeeds and Aizawa keeps his composure. The two are then tasked by the police force to possibly awaken Shirakumo's character, buried deep inside Kurogiri's consciousness.
Hizashi defends Aizawa's decision to expel most of his class before Class 1-A.
