The newest My Hero Academia film was recently released on Blu-Ray and Heroes Rising is one of the best films of the year, beating Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog in their Second Week in the US Box Office and dominating the Japanese Box Office in its debut.
“A must-see story full of passion!! In this movie, Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka, Shoto Todoroki, and all the other members of Class 1-A will make an appearance! Even though All Might was admired by many all around the world, it was with a sad heart that he had to give up his hero role as the Symbol of Peace. Because of this, a dark force who was moving behind the scenes, a villain named Nine who can be considered the greatest villain thus far.“
The Newest Review finds us going on a training exercise with the heroes of 1-A, let’s get to it!
While it may be a sequel, this also serves as a good jump on point for new fans of the Shonen Anime series, as the story goes, the Class 1-A Students are on a special assignment that takes place on a remote island but unbeknownst to them a new, more powerful enemy also arrives on the island and is ready to cause chaos and havoc. This also serves as recycled material in a way if you think about it, in Two Heroes they traveled to an island, and then a villain causes chaos. Sounds familiar right? While it has a similar premise but in the long run it is entirely different, Heroes Rising not only focuses on the future of being a Hero and the relationship between Izuku Midoriya and Katsuki Bakugo, both have had a rocky type of relationship but the duo seems to have mutual respect while Bakugo would not entirely admit it. Another reviewer, Dave Trumbore of Collider pointed out something interesting about the comparison of American Comic Book Superhero Films and on the Television Screen from Marvel and DC; while the heroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are concentrating on fighting supervillains, stopping the world from being destroyed, and then the DC Entertainment Universe heroes, well, they are either fighting each other more than fighting the main villains. The story focuses on Deku and his fellow students of Class 1-A visit Nabu Island where they finally get to do some real hero work. What’s supposed to be a peaceful trip turns dangerous after the appearance of a villain with an unimaginable, yet eerily familiar Quirk. As Deku and his friends fight to protect the island, they are forced to prove themselves as the next generation of heroes.
Overall this film is beautifully animated, the fighting scenes are well choreographed and drawn perfectly. BONES always has had quality animation and a fantastic team of artists and animators dedicated to providing something worthwhile for the fans and admirers of Japanese Animation, while we are on the subject of Japanese Animation, these characters were designed wonderfully, Yoshihiko Umakoshi has always had a unique style to his work, one of my favorite villains from this film would have to be Chojuro Kon, I felt like his quirk and presence was a nod to another anime produced by BONES studio, Fullmetal Alchemist.
My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is on sale digitally and on Blu-Ray and DVD.
