The anime smash hit that’s swept the world now makes its debut on the big screen! Our favorite young hero-in-training is in for a wild ride when villains threaten the artificial moving city, I-Island.
Deku and All Might receive an invitation to I-Expo, the world’s leading exhibition of Quirk abilities and hero item innovations!Amid the excitement, sponsors, and pros from all over, Deku meets Melissa, a girl who is Quirkless just like he once was. Suddenly, I-Expo’s top-of-the-line security system gets hacked by villains, and a sinister plan is set in motion. It’s a serious threat to hero society, and one man holds the key to it all—the symbol of peace, All Might.

Film Review Preview
If you haven’t been watching My Hero Academia, then you have been missing out on the best comic book style hero manga/anime of the year. That is just my opinion and I am sure some would disagree. My Hero Academia Two Heroes is a one-shot movie that fits into the story line just after the Stain arc and right before the forest training camp. The question of whether its canon or not is simple. According to the creator the story is canon.
There is always a little something you gain about each character that helps them grow a bit. For me Deku, Bakugo, Shoto and Kirishima all grew from this film. Bakugo was the one who seemed to have the most to gain. If you remember the timing in the story, the kidnapping that happens shortly after that clearly would piss off Bakugo even more given the context after watching Deku fight like this.
