The anime phenomenon that is My Hero Academia boasts an insane level of popularity despite only being around a couple years. About to take the U.S. by storm as more and more viewers discover the wholesome action-packed anime, the engine the fuels My Hero Academia is going all out by bringing the show’s first film abroad. The first English trailer for My Hero Academia: Two Heroes has gone live and you can watch it here.
In similar style to the anime and manga, the trailer takes everything you love about the heartfelt, non-stop fighting anime, and turns the dial up to eleven. The reel showcases main characters like Izuku Midoriya and All Might, along with a couple newcomers such as Melissa Shield and David Shield. I believe that movie is already out in Japan (I could be wrong), and it’s set to be appear in U.S. theaters between September 25-October 2.
The official synopsis for My Hero Academia: Two Heroes reads as follows: “After the end of the climatic Final Exams, the U.A. Class members head off to their school field trip for Summer break. However, before they head off to the school field trip, All Might and Deku accept an invitation from someone to go abroad to a floating and mobile manmade city, called ‘I Island.’ All researchers in the world, from both East and West, are gathered in this place, known as the Hollywood of Science, where they research quirks as well as hero supplemental items at the special ‘I Expo’ convention that is currently being held on the island.”
The now-titanic series was created by Kohei Horikoshi and debuted in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump back in July of 2014. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, the show revolves around protagonist Izuku Midoriya living in a world where practically everyone, excluding him, has super powers. Still wishing to be a superhero, the world’s greatest hero All Might takes Midoriya under his wing and enrolls the youngster in a school for professional heroes.
