Izuru Kamukura Project, also referred to as The Hope Cultivation Plan or The Kamukura Project, was an experiment directed by The Steering Committee to create artificial hope in normal students, and create the Ultimate Hope, a student with every talent researched by Hope's Peak Academy.
The project was named after the founder of Hope's Peak Academy, Izuru Kamukura, and was considered the culmination of Hope's Peak Academy's research on talent. In order to achieve this goal, human experimentation and other immoralities were required, so The Steering Committee kept the project a secret, even to Principal Jin Kirigiri. After Class 74th graduated, former students Kyosuke Munakata, Chisa Yukizome, and Juzo Sakakura worked to uncover the project, and accepted positions on Hope's Peak Academy's faculty to aid their investigation.
The Reserve Course was started partly to fund The Kamukura Project, with the majority of the students' tuition going towards it. Now that there was sufficient funding, Izuru Kamukura Project moved into its human testing phase, during Class 77-B's freshman year. Hajime Hinata, a talentless Reserve Course student, was selected to become the Ultimate Hope. He was pulled out of the school, with his official transcript stating he was expelled, to cover up his involvement with the project.
Extensive surgeries were performed on Hajime to give him every talent Hope's Peak Academy had researched. As a result, Hajime was driven to insanity, unable to handle the transformation. In response, The Steering Committee decided to lobotomize him, and later removed his memories and other emotional functions. His personality and appearance changed drastically. Once Hajime's condition had stabilized, he was christened with the name Izuru Kamukura, The Ultimate Hope.
