FIRST LOOK: My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

Have enjoyed some Japanese anime and videogames, but I’m not very knowledgeable or well-versed in the scene. That makes this FIRST LOOK particularly educational (for me). Also, like Impractical Jokers, this movie is already in theaters. Typically, we only do FIRST LOOK profiles on movies that haven’t come out yet.

If you’re reading and enjoy the TV series and have seen the first movie in 2017: My Hero Academia: Two Heroes — then you’re ahead of us. Am interested if you like this series, so please say something in the comments below. Let’s see what Wikipedia says about My Hero Academia.

The story follows Izuku Midoriya, a boy born without superpowers (called Quirks) in a world where they have become commonplace, but who still dreams of becoming a hero himself. He is scouted by All Might, Japan’s greatest hero, who shares his quirk with Izuku after recognizing his potential, and later helps to enroll him in a prestigious high school for heroes in training.

From this description, I’m getting an X-Men academy vibe. Only instead of mutants, it’s people without super powers.

If you, like us, don’t speak Japanese, then here’s a subbed and dubbed clip:

Japanese animation talent is very good. The gigantic eyes, explosions, smoke and character electricity powers look intriguing. We’re planning to watch, rate later this week in 4DX format at the Regal Red Rock in Las Vegas.

This is playing multiple times in 4DX while we’re down there, these are showtimes for the 3/4/2020

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opened in LIMITED theaters on February 26, 2020.
