'My Hero Academia: Two Heroes' Streams On Crunchyroll


One of the most popular anime and manga of the 21st Century is My Hero Academia. It's not hard to see why either- the series combines classic Shonen action with a world populated by Western-style superheroes and supervillains. Like any anime franchise that gets popular enough, My Hero Academia has spun off a series of movies. Crunchyroll have announced this week that the first MHA movie Two Heroes is coming to streaming.

The series follows plucky hero Deku who enrols in one of the world's most prestigious Hero Academies, despite being one of the few born without a super-power (or "Quirk"). It's not long before one of the most respected heroes around, All Might (who is on the staff at the Academy) is impressed by Deku's spirit and shares his powers with him.

My Hero Academia spans 38 volumes of manga, and the anime adaptation encompasses six seasons, eight OVAs and three movies.

In Two Heroes Deku and his friends mount a daring rescue when villains hack into I-Expo, the world's leading Superhero convention. Among those trapped by the villain's action is All Might, and he must rely on the quick thinking of the next generation of heroes to rescue him.

The film is directed by Kenji Nagasaki and written by Yƍsuke Kuroda, based on My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi. The Character Designs are by Yoshihiko Umakoshi.  Animation production is by Studio Bones.

The English version of the show features Justin Briner as Izuku Midoriya, Clifford Chapin as Katsuki Bakugo, Luci Christian, as Ochaco Uraraka, J. Michael Tatum as Tenya Ida, David Matranga as Shoto Todoroki, , Justin Cook as Eijiro Kirishima, Colleen Clinkenbeard as Momo Yaoyorozu, Monica Rial as Tsuyu Asui and Chris Sabat as All Might.

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes will be available on Crunchyroll to premium members from 5.00 PM (Pacific Time) on Thursday August 17.  It will be available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, The Nordics and The Caribbean.

This joins a growing number of movies available on Crunchyroll including Demon Slayer Kimetsu No Yaiba: Mugen Train, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and more.
