Tamaki transferred to his new school during the spring, his first day as a third grader. Tamaki could not give a proper self-introduction and after the opening ceremony where they moved into the classrooms and formed groups, Tamaki was not able to insert himself into any group because he lacked the courage. Due to considering himself a boring person, Tamaki was not able to make any friends. Suddenly, Mirio Togata approached him after realizing that Tamaki was trying to say that he likes Heroes , it was this recognition that began the friendship between Tamaki and Mirio.

In middle school during a Quirk Education class, Tamaki tried manifesting something but only managed to manifest a tiny plant on his hand due to his nervousness. Meanwhile, Mirio tried phasing through a wall but only managed to phase his hands through it. Some of Mirio's classmates laughed at Mirio's struggles, but Mirio was not disheartened at all and resolved to pull off his phasing properly next time. While walking home, Tamaki praised Mirio's optimism while lamenting his own lack of self-esteem. Mirio cheered up Tamaki and said that he will shine brightly like the sun and the reason he can give it his all is due to Tamaki being there for him. Although he was nervous, Mirio praised Tamaki's resolve to never give up which inspired him to do the same. Despite Tamaki's low opinion of himself, Mirio always thought of Tamaki as a talented person who is cool and super fun and sunny to be around with.

Tamaki noted that Mirio had always been strong. The two refer to one another by their first names and were worried for one another when either of them went through dangerous or emotionally stressful situations.

It's heavily implied that Mirio may have given Tamaki his hero name, "Suneater". It is often seen of Tamaki referring to Mirio as the sun, as in his eyes, Mirio shines bright like the sun because of his bright and positive personality. Mirio, on the other hand, says Tamaki shines even brighter than the sun itself, thus overshadowing it.

When he Mirio he fought against the students of Class 1-A and Tamaki was from the wall defending his abilities.

Mirio showed visible concern after learning about the shot Tamaki received, asking very quickly if he was okay and Tamaki was surprised to see Mirio's state of sadness after learning about Eri's situation.

When Tamaki had begun to talk about why the heroes would not be able to save Eri or even themselves, Mirio interfered with Tamaki's ramblings with words of encouragement, reassuring Tamaki and encouraging him.

When Tamaki was fighting the three members of Eight Bullets, he remembered Mirio's words of encouragement giving him enough motivation to fight.

When Shin Nemoto shot Mirio during his fight against Overhaul with the Quirk-Destroying Drug, Tamaki woke up from unconsciousness and felt something bad happened to Mirio. It is implied that just after that Tamaki went looking for him and finally pulled Mirio out of the building.

When the subject of Eri's Quirk was brought up, Tamaki put his hand on Mirio's shoulder and mentioned that Mirio's powers would possibly return and said that his future as a great hero may be real. Mirio thanked him for his belief and smiled at his friend.

In Kirishima’s chapter from the vol. 4 light novel, Fat Gum then asks Tamaki if he’s fought before with Mirio, and Tamaki says they’ve never fought.

  • Tamaki's hero name Suneater can be translated as⁚ The One Who Eats the Sun.
  • The zodiac signs of Mirio (Cancer) and Tamaki (Pisces) have maximum compatibility as they are both water signs (thanks Horikoshi-sensei) and they both have opposite personalities. Cancer and Pisces complement each other completely as they are both so different, and they complement each other emotionally (Mirio is Tamaki's motivation and Tamaki Mirio's), they instinctively understand each other and feel the needs of the other (when Tamaki felt that something was wrong with Mirio, Tamaki when seeing Mirio decayed by the fact that he had left Eri in the hands of Chisaki, Mirio worrying when he found out that Tamaki had been shot, etc). As they describe, they are a very affectionate couple (the miritama fandom knows it and always represents them in this way, they are one of the most Fluf couples they will find, the most caramelized and cheesy couple that they will see) and support their partner.
