My Hero Academia Two Heroes Review: A Fine Cinematic Debut for Anime Series

Superheroes are an all too common concept in this day and age. The idea of heroes saving the day has branched off into a number of mediums including televisions and of course movies. It is no different for the likes of anime as making a scene for Toei Animation is none other than My Hero Academia. The manga by Kohei Horikoshi is becoming a global hit as the story of Izuku Midoriya becoming the world’s greatest hero continues to grow in popularity. It has come to the point where the anime has followed many before it and gained its very own movie-My Hero Academia:Two Heroes. Directed by Kenji Nagasaki Two Heroes brings the uprising series to the big screen which could very well bridge My Hero’s popularity into a new format. The film has been in Japanese theaters since August and now the movie has arrived here in the states for a limited release. Animes transitioning to a celluloid format is no easy feat as it can contrast with a series’ storytelling. So for me the question going into this movie was could My Hero Academia make this transition? After watching the movie I can safely say that My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is indeed a solid outing for the series.
