This work is a hero action series based on the manga series by Kohei Horikoshi, serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump”, and the fifth season of the TV anime is currently being broadcast from March 2021.

“My Hero Academia The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission” is the third film of the “My Hero Academia” movie series. It depicts the activities of Deku and his friends, who are entrusted with the future of the world and of heroes, in the face of the biggest crisis in the history of “My Hero Academia” by the mysterious group Humarize, which plans to annihilate all Quirk holders around the world, based on the idea “Quirk Singularity Doomsday Theory” that Quirks lead to the end of human history.

And now, the latest trailer video with plenty of scenes from the film has been released. A mysterious terrorist organization called “Humarize” is plotting to destroy the Quirk society, and they have announced that they will “attack the world simultaneously”. In order to save the world from the crisis, Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki and other members of the Hero Department of U.A. High School, as well as professional heroes such as Endeavor and Hawks, gather together. In addition, the moving figures and character voices of Rody Soul, an original character from the film played by Yoshizawa Ryo, and the mysterious enemy “Villain” Flect Turn played by Nakai Kazuya have also been unveiled for the first time. We are expecting a lot from the exciting trailer, which depicts the passionate bond between the heroes as they struggle in different parts of the world and the superb action.

In addition, the theme song for the film will be “Empathy” by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION. It is a new song written especially for this film, and is hot with a sense of speed. The soundtrack has also been released for the first time in this trailer.

“My Hero Academia The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission” will be released on August 6 at Toho theatres nationwide.

Comments from “ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION” in full: Words like ‘Everyone is different and everyone is good’ are very beautiful, but there is no end to the worries about one’s own personality. When I see the growth of Deku and the others, I realize that heroes also have their own worries. They are fighting not only against the villains, but also against themselves. I was inspired by their courage as I wrote the theme song. I’m honored to be a part of such a wonderful movie. ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION
