My Hero Academia, one of the most successful anime properties of the past decade, has a new movie out…and if you missed the brief theatrical run (given the circumstances, you probably did), it’s coming to home video formats very soon.
Class 1-A has arrived on Nabu Island, a tourist destination where they figure they can just relax and take their mind off superheroism…but that’s what they think. It isn’t long before they’re suddenly attacked by an unknown assailant with a Quirk they’ve never seen before (though it feels familiar…) If they want to return home in one piece, they have to find a way to stop this new villain.
No bonus features are mentioned in the press release…that doesn’t mean there won’t be any, but it’s a curious oversight if there are. You CAN get one guaranteed bonus, if you’re into Funko Pops and you order directly from the Funimation Shop. They’ll give you a 25th Anniversary Silver Chrome All-Might Funko with your purchase.
My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising goes on sale in Blu-Ray, DVD and digital formats October 27.
The number one hero anime is back for a battle beyond anything fans have ever seen! Class 1-A visits Nabu Island where they finally get to do some real hero work. The place is so peaceful that it’s more like a vacation … until they’re attacked by a villain with an unfathomable Quirk! His power is eerily familiar, and it looks like Shigaraki had a hand in the plan. But with All Might retired and citizens’ lives on the line, there’s no time for questions. Deku and his friends are the next generation of heroes, and they’re the island’s only hope.
