The fifth season of My Hero Academia landed today and that’s come with a bit of news about the feature film side. The series has aired 88-episodes across its four-season run so far and had two feature films. We got the confirmation back in November 2020 that the third feature film was coming and more recently a title with My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission.

Set with a premiere date of August 6th, 2021 in Japan, the official site continues to find ways to keep fans engaged and looking for more merch as they’ve added a new theatrical poster for it. It’s a busy one with the bulk of the cast but it’s also the one that I can see being the final home video release cover as well with how it’s presented.

Originally starting back in the summer of 2014, after creator Kouhei Horikoshi Barrage series ended, My Hero Academia is one of the more well-received books in the English edition of Weekly Shonen Jump.

Horikoshi received a Tezuka Award Honorable Mention in 2006 after publishing several short stories in Akamaru Jump. His first serialized work was Oumagadoki Doubutsuen back in 2010.

Plot Concept: It’s an exciting age of heroes, where most people develop supernatural abilities known as Quirks. Bright-eyed kids like Izuku Midoriya—Deku for short—dream of the day they become champions of the people. There’s just one little problem standing in Deku’s way. In a world full of heroes, he’s Quirkless. Crushed, but not down for the count, this superhero-fanboy dedicates his time to studying the pros in hopes that he, too, can join a prestigious high school for heroes. In the face of despair, Deku’s courage catches the eye of his ultimate idol, the symbol of justice known as All Might! With special training from the big guy himself, Deku and the talented first-years of the academy may finally have a shot at achieving their dreams. But these amateurs are put to the test of a lifetime when routine training becomes a battle against real villains!
