The first movie version of the “My Hero Academia” series, “My Hero Academia THE MOVIE Two Heroes,” will be broadcast for the first time on the terrestrial broadcast on Nippon Television’s “Friday Road Show” on August 6th. It is decided. The third movie version, “My Hero Academia THE MOVIE World Heroes Mission,” will be broadcast on the first day of its release and will be the uncut version of the main story.
“My Hero Academia” has been serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump” (published by Shueisha) since 2014, and the total circulation of the series is 5,000. Over 10,000 copies. The TV anime series started in 2016, and the 5th period is currently being broadcast. Broadcast in more than 100 countries and regions, it is overwhelmingly popular overseas, mainly in North America, Europe, and Asia.
The story is set in a world where about 80% of the total population has special abilities called “individuality.” In the first movie version, the event “Blank Summer” that occurred between the “final exam” of the second season of the TV animation and the “forest training camp” of the third season is drawn. As guest voice actors, Mirai Shida (Melissa) and Katsuhisa Namase (role of David) are participating. A specific person, Deku, and All Might, are invited by one particular person visiting the megacity I Island, which is floating overseas.
Deku meets Melissa, a girl with “individuality,” while the “I Expo” is being held to showcase the achievements of scientific researchers from around the world. Deku used to superimpose himself on Melissa, but suddenly the Island’s security system was hacked by an enemy (villain), and all humans on the Island were taken hostage. Kohei Horikoshi, the original author who also served as general supervision, made the following comments about this broadcast: “Speaking of the Friday Road Show, it’s the opening animation by Hayao Miyazaki and Yoshifumi Kondo. I love that opening, and even in the movie times that I wasn’t very interested in when I was a kid, I tuned in to watch the start.
The Friday Road Show was filled with memories of family unity, the fear of T-1000, the noble spirit of Predator, and so on. My work, “My Hero Academia,” was named for such a historic program. Thank you very much for joining us.”
My Hero Academia, THE MOVIE Two Heroes”, will be released on August 6th from 9 pm to 10:54 pm on the Japanese TV series “Broadcast on “Friday Road Show.”
