****SPOILERS FOR MY HERO ACADEMIA: HEROES RISING***
What a great crowd for the premiere showing of My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. I liked how people came wearing their fan gear, I know I did! And such enthusiasm for the film. I thought I bought a ticket for the subtitled showing, since that’s how I watch the series, but it ended up being the dubbed showing! I was able to enjoy the movie after I acclimated to the different voice actors and language. The film was fantastic and I definitely preferred it over the first My Hero Academia movie.
The biggest shock was when Deku shared One for All for Bakugo when they teamed up against Nine. Did anyone (who didn’t read the manga) see that coming? I certainly didn’t! But after the battle it seems Bakugo doesn’t remember and Deku still has his quirk. I wonder if Deku’s intention for it “being a loan” made it revert back to him? I have so many questions now! Anyways, check out the movie if you haven’t already! You get to see the students on their own running an agency, new characters with interesting quirks, and Bakugo and Deku getting along (kind of).
We got a new opening and ending, with music of course, for My Hero Academia! It was a total shift in tone. The opening felt bright and uplifting, with moments of reflection for Bakugo, Todorki, and Endeavor. Looks like we have a festival to look forward to! Aizawa has a little coat, is that for Eri??? And the ending scene had old photos of some of our favorite heroes (and some villains) at festivals. Let me know if I missed anyone or if I had any incorrect names. I’m watching on Hulu!
