posted on by Egan Loo
The Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film will ship on February 13 in Japan, and the "BD/DVD Plus Ultra Edition" will include a new bonus anime. The All Might: Rising The Animation bonus will adapt the "No.0 ALL MIGHT: RISING" one-shot manga. Below are the illustrations on the front and back of the "BD/DVD Plus Ultra Edition" jacket:
The original main manga's creator Kōhei Horikoshi drew the "All Might Rising" one-shot manga for the "Vol. Origin" books that were given out to the film's first million audience members in Japan. Viz Media released the 10-page manga for free in English on its website.
All editions of the Blu-ray Disc and DVD releases will include the feature itself and a collection of preview videos (teaser and full trailers plus television commercials). The "BD/DVD Plus Ultra Edition's" bonus extras will also include a newly recorded picture drama of the ending credits' BBQ scene, footage from the Los Angeles Anime Expo world premiere, the cast's stage greeting from the advance screening in Japan, the cast's stage greeting for the opening weekend screenings, and the television special.
The video below promotes the manga short:
In the below panels, All Might says "Master" twice and Nana Shimura responds by saying "All Might."
Funimation and TOHO hosted a world premiere of the film with English subtitles at Anime Expo on July 5, and the English dub version of the film had a red carpet premiere at the Regal Cinema L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on September 13. Funimation then screened the film in the United States and Canada in September and October.
The film opened in Japan on August 3, and earned 500,320,000 yen (about US$4.49 million) in its first three days to rank #4 in its opening weekend. The movie has since earned more than 1.5 billion yen (about US$13.46 million) at the Japanese box office.
Funimation describes the film:
The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.
Original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi is credited with the original work, character designs, and as chief supervisor. Returning staff members included director Kenji Nagasaki at BONES, scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi. TOHO distributed the film in Japan. Masaki Suda performed the film's theme song "Long Hope Philia." amazarashi's Hiromu Akita wrote and composed the piece.
