My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission English release date
On August 25, Funimation announced it will release My Hero Academia World Heroes’ Mission on October 29 in the United States. That’s only two months after the Japanese release, which was on August 6, 2021. Tickets will go on sale October 1.
Funimation will also release the latest My Hero Academia movie in:
- Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland on October 29
- Australia and New Zealand on October 28
- Latin America, Scandinavia, Finland, and Iceland at a later date
Funimation will be handling the movie’s localization, dubbing, and distribution in USA theaters. So doing all that in two months is actually a pretty good deal. Fans won’t have to wait long. A new trailer was shared for the occasion on Twitter.
More on the next movie, TV anime Season 5
My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission is the third movie of the franchise. Just like the past two movies, it’s a brand new original story, not from the original manga. However, the original author, Horikoshi, supervised the script so fans can be sure to have a good time.
As a movie, World Heroes’ Mission should feature particularly good animation too, with higher production values than the TV series. Personally, I’d say it’s best to keep your expectations in check when it comes to character development though, as these types of original movies tend to keep the status quo to not divert too much from the original work.
Right now, season 5 of the MHA anime is still ongoing, with a special My Villain Academia arc. All of the remaining episodes of Season 5 will be covering it, corresponding to chapters 218 to 240 of the manga, the Meta Liberation Army Arc.
Last but not least, if you haven’t been doing it yet, you should be following Kohei Horikoshi, My Hero Academia’s mangaka, on Twitter. He’s been regularly sharing exclusive illustrations for S5.
