My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Review

Movies in hit anime series like My Hero Academia are hard to balance. It’s almost understandable to a whole new audience, offers something relevant and interesting to show fans, and is exciting, but you need to find a way to do it. It has a significant and lasting impact on the show. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is the second attempt by animation studio Bones to achieve all three and it does a great job. Heroes Rising is an explosion of great action one after another. It doesn’t completely nail the landing at its greatest moment, and the villain is a bit boring, but it’s not far from the excitement of seeing the entire Class 1-A reach its limits. The chronological order has not been established, but it will be placed sometime in Season 4. With heroes like Rock Lock, the League of Villains is still useless, with certain important Season 4 items. That said, Heroes Rising is a prime example of how easy it is to use historical information from a show to contextualize a movie event. Flashbacks are primarily used in unobtrusive moments, and important information is naturally written into the conversation. Most of the movies are smartly distanced from the current event in the anime series, although there is a slight risk of thematic spoilers, at least if they haven’t caught up at the beginning of Season 4.

Like My Hero Academia’s first movie, Two Heroes, UA High School Class 1-A students are busy on the remote islands of Heroes Rising. Resident Heroes have retired and have been dispatched to supplement recent retirees without professional hero supervision to provide additional training to UA’s top students. The last part is a bit suspicious given that it’s only high school students who are left to run the hero business without supervision, but the setup works great and tells them when the villain finally attacks. Gives a shining space.

As the series progresses, Class 1-A naturally decreases, and Heroes Rising fixes it excitingly. Even characters like Koda and Shoji get a chance to shine. The nature of their work on the island is mediocre, but it’s still exciting to see because of the fun personality of Class 1-A and the creative way of seeing them use their habits. From helping an old woman who threw her back to launching a violent attack on her enemies while evacuating the townspeople, Heroes Rising is a great showcase of their current abilities.

The new supporting characters Mahoro and Katsuma are two cute kids who stir up the long-standing theme of questioning the implications of becoming a hero in a world whose respected title is just another profession. Heroes Rising doesn’t dig too deep, but its theme serves as a good frame when Deku and Bakugo are in the spotlight together. Heroes Rising is ultimately about their relationship and their own valid but different brand of heroism, but again, to balance screen time with other 1-A students. I’m doing a great job. Part of that happens because they are still students and it’s not an easy feat to face the villains of four new adults in Heroes Rising. The practicality of My Hero Academia, with the general disadvantages of students to experienced villains, has always been one of its strengths, and it’s good to see it inherited primarily in Heroes Rising. is.The villain class 1-A, who competes in this action-packed movie, has a bland motive, but their mundane brand evil works primarily here. The battle is monologue and never stalled, but instead studded with effective malicious quips. The villain habits do not exactly counter the student habits, but their raw power and flashiness can be of great help. And since the students are on this island without the support of experts, we can really see their tactics and teamwork shining. Battle animations are generally good, except for the annoying CG cloud that sometimes rolls.

It’s a shame that it fails the presentation of its greatest moment because of all the power and fun that Heroes Rising brings. The crazy, well-animated Final Fight is close to the realm of feverish dreams, displaying strange and sentimental music that doesn’t match the intensity of what’s happening on the screen. Certain moments of battle (which is one of the notable battles) also have a serious impact on my hero academia canon, and the way Heroes Rising wipes them out isn’t entirely satisfactory.
