Kōhei Horikoshi draws cover, original manga for volume

This year's 28th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that theatergoers to My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes' Mission, the third anime film in the franchise, will receive a "Vol. World Heroes" bonus manga volume. The manga volume is limited to one million copies.

Original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi drew the cover for the manga volume and some of the contents, including a manga with an original scenario. Other contents include a roundtable interview with past and present editors of the manga, costume and character designs, and an interview with Horkoshi.

Both previous films in the franchise also featured a "Vol. Origin" and "Vol. Rising" manga volume as a limited bonus to theatergoers.

In the film's story, a mysterious organization dedicated to the destruction of people with Quirks has issued a threat and set bombs all over the world. Pro Heroes and those in Hero Internships scramble to find the bombs. Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki encounter Rody (voiced by Ryō Yoshizawa), a boy living in a mobile home in their designated area of Oseon, and end up working with him.

The film will open in Japan on August 6. Original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi will again serve as chief supervisor and original character designer.

Kenji Nagasaki is returning from the television series and two previous films in the franchise to direct the new film at BONES. Other returning staff members include scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi.

The My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film opened in Japan in July 2018. The second film, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (Boku no Hero Academia the Movie -Heroes: Rising-), opened in Japan in December 2019. Funimation screened the film in the United States and Canada, where it ranked at #1 in the United States box office when it opened in February 2020.
