posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Toho Animation began streaming a commercial for the Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film on Monday. The commercial includes a few seconds of footage from All Might: Rising The Animation, the included bonus anime that adapts the "No.0 ALL MIGHT: RISING" one-shot manga.
The Blu-ray Disc and DVD release for the film is slated for February 13 in Japan.
The original main manga's creator Kohei 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.
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 earned US$5,768,366 in the United States and Canada during its theatrical run, making it the #10 highest-grossing domestic anime film of all time.
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 1.64 billion yen (about US$14.47 million) at the Japanese box office.
