Izuku "Deku'' Midoriya and his fellow students in Class 1-A of UA High's hero course have been chosen to participate in a safety program on Nabu Island. To further improve their skills and gain experience in more ordinary heroics, the students aid the kind citizens with small services and everyday chores. With the low crime rate in the quiet community, all seems well and good, but the rise of a new villain threatens to put the students' courage to the test and challenge their capabilities as heroes.

A merciless villain by the name of Nine is in search of a certain "quirk" needed to fulfill his diabolical plan—creating a society where only those with the strongest quirks reign supreme. As his attack on Nabu Island endangers the lives of the residents, securing the citizens becomes the first priority for Class 1-A; defeating Nine along with his wicked accomplices is also imperative. A straightforward strategy is formulated until a young boy named Katsuma Shimano, whom Deku had befriended, suddenly requires particular protection. Concerned for the boy's wellbeing, Deku and his classmates must now devise a plan to ensure Katsuma's safety at all costs.

With Nine wreaking havoc to find the catalyst for his ill-intended schemes and the heroes desperate to defend Katsuma from harm, will Deku and his friends be able to come out victorious, or will they find themselves unable to escape a hopeless situation?

Everything about this movie... WOW WOW WOW! 100 times better than the first. I never thought I would be able to see anime in the cinema. When the characters came on the screen I was so damn happy and excited. Will do my best to keep spoilers to a minimum!

Story: 10/10
The best part about this film is that every one in class 1-A is included and have equal and awesome moments and screentime!! My favourite aspect of this movie is that they don't have pro heroes to rely on, they have to do everything themselves. We get to see how they all react in an ...

Mixed Feelings
I know before even writing this, I will be in the minority regarding my thoughts and feelings on this film. I will do my best to exclude spoilers but some talking points will probably require minor hints at what happens.

Story: 6
The story for this film is as cookie cutter as it gets for a shounen anime, especially a MHA film. There's a villain who, surprise, wants to rule the world and use powers to make his own kind power-based fantasy realm that doesn't work if you think about it for more than a second or two. He, of course, has to be tied into the ...
Feb 26, 2020
If you've seen the first Hero Academia movie, you should know what to expect here - but this time the idea of a MHA fanservice story that has no bearing on the main plot has worn out its welcome. And it doesn't help that this movie hits every single plot beat that the last one did.

Once again, this film takes place on a remote island, far away from U.A. High School or any other place that might cause any plot holes. The most major difference is what's on the island - this time, it's a small, rural town full of normal people who live normal ...
