  • About My Hero Academia: My Hero Academia has won over audiences worldwide with distinctive characters battling their way through high school in a world where 80% of Earth’s population manifests some kind of exceptional ability called a “quirk”. For superhero fanboy Izuku Midoriya (aka Deku), being born without a quirk makes him almost give up his dream of going to U.A. High School, the most prestigious hero training academy. But after a chance encounter with the legendary All Might, Deku starts on the road to become the greatest hero. With over 65 million total copies (including digital editions) in circulation worldwide as a series, My Hero Academia, written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi, continues to develop into a global powerhouse. A part of publisher Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump since 2014, both the manga and the ongoing anime series from Bones Inc. & TOHO Animation are considered among the best of the 2010s.

  • Toho Co., Ltd. will distribute the film theatrically in Japan
