My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

Internet Movie Database          Movie Reviews

From the manga series My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi

This is another ‘school for extraordinary beings’ series. In this story, about 80% of the people all over the world have developed ‘quirks’, superpowers, and there are schools to train the good ones to go up against the bad ones. Izuko is a young teenage boy who has shown no evidence of a quirk, but the world’s greatest superhero, All Might, has gotten him a place in the Superhero Academy anyway because of his potential.

This is a hugely popular manga series, and is a lot of fun to read. There is an anime series, but this was a standalone movie released in theatres.

And it was good. Predictable, especially given the two hour (instead of a series0 time frame, but well written, with good characters and storyline. If you’re a fan, or just like some anime now and again, try this one.
