‘My Hero Academia: Heroes:Rising’ Review: National Lampoon’s Anime Vacation

In Anime Airwaves #18, we review 僕のヒーローアカデミア THE MOVIE ヒーローズ:ライジング (Boku no Hero Academia the Movie 2: Heroes:Rising), the hyped series from studio Bones.

The number one hero anime is back in theaters for a battle beyond anything fans have ever seen! Class 1-A visits Nabu Island where they finally get to do some real hero work. The place is so peaceful that it’s more like a vacation … until they’re attacked by a villain with an unfathomable Quirk! His power is eerily familiar, and it looks like Shigaraki had a hand in the plan. But with All Might retired and citizens’ lives on the line, there’s no time for questions. Deku and his friends are the next generation of heroes, and they’re the island’s only hope.
