The Recycle Shop: Hoppers (リサイクルショップ ほっぱ〜ず Risaikuru Shoppu Hoppa~zu?) was a second-hand store runned by brothers Ichiro and Jiro Hotta.


Located in Naruhata, the store was easily identifiable thanks to its enormous sign on top of the scaparate, with the name of the shop and it emblem, which are two grasshoppers, a clear reference to the owners's Quirks.

Within the establishment there was a lot of second-hand goods to sell: furniture, appliances, utensils, etc.. The Hotta brothers also had a warehouse on the outskirts, where they stored more merchandise, but the building was destroyed during a confrontation against a Next-Level Villain.

Apart from their legitimate business, the Hotta brothers were also drug dealers involved in Trigger trafficking, although they dealed a normal, legal version of the drug to help stop balding and erectile dysfunction, staying away from any issue with the adulterated version, which had caused numerous incidents related to Villains.[1]

During his investigations on the traffic of Trigger and the actions of the Villain Factory, Aizawa decided to use the store as an impromptu base, even having actual meetings with Detective Naomasa in the shop, to the dismay of the Hotta brothers.[2] They got even more annoyed when Koichi decided to use their store as a hangout as well.[3]

After their warehouse was destroyed, the Hotta Brothers decided to use the villain damage insurance payment and the welfare subsidy that Ikajiro Takobe and Kirihito Kamachi got for oversized housing to start a cafe-shop.[4]
