The number one hero anime is back in theaters for a battle beyond anything fans have ever seen! In My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, 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.
If you’re like us, you’ve been anxiously awaiting this second installment from the hit My Hero Academia franchise, especially coming on the heels of the record-breaking launch of Season 4, available to stream on FunimationNow. The first film, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, released in 2018, added more to the lives and characteristics of our favorite anime heroes while also becoming a huge hit with North American audiences, ranking #10 on the Top 10 list of highest grossing domestic anime films of all time – surpassing “The Wind Rises” ($5.2M) by legendary director Hayao Miyazaki.
