My Hero Academia News: The latest episode of the My Hero Academia anime gets a scene that ties in with the new movie, World Heroes ’Mission
While this week’s episode of the My Hero Academia anime was mostly filler – the story doesn’t appear in the original manga – it did serve a purpose.
It was used to link the new film in the series. We’re talking about My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, which will be released in Japanese theaters early next month.
It is a story that takes place outside the borders of Japan, in another nation.
–O SPOILERS NOTICE o–
In episode 104 of this week, the 16 of the fifth season, Ochaco Uraraka, Tsuyu Asui and Nejire Hado, next to the professional hero Selkie and the second in command of him, Sirius, thwart the smuggling of a drug shipment.
This illegal substance allows the person who applies it to boost their Quirk for a specific moment. After a chase they manage to secure the shipment. Once this adventure ends, the credits appear, as well as something else.
It is a post-credits scene, where the villain of the new film, Flect Turn, appears. He mentions there that even though they couldn’t secure more of the drug, known as Trigger, they still have enough to go on.
What is this character up to? Well, a malicious plan that is supposed to “save humanity.” What he and his allies intend to do is annihilate all the people who have Quirks.
My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission Coming Soon
That would be about 80% of humanity, which would be a genocide of global magnitude. So Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki, alongside a group of heroes from both the country of the Rising Sun and other nations, must stop him.
The fearsome Flect Turn runs his organization like some kind of cult, and he has very powerful allies who really hold a grudge against defenders of justice.
My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission will be released on August 6 in Japan, and it is not known when it will arrive in the West. It is likely to be early next year.
The video in this note can be seen in the link at the end of this one. From the looks of it, the story of this film takes place between the Endeavor Agency arc and the story related to the League of Villains from the anime.
