The second and final feature film offering in Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia manga plays like X-Men: First Class filtered through the crazy quirks of anime.
And speaking of Quirks, that’s the name given to special abilities shared by 80 per cent of the population, which can lead them to the light side or the dark. Set following the events of the Meta Liberation Army story arc in the manga, UA High’s Class 1-A is despatched to Nabu Island to protect the inhabitants from a trio of supervillains in search of a particular healing Quirk. Fans of the series will find much to love here and will want to splash out on the special limited edition steelbook edition on Blu-ray. Bonus features include a behind-the-scenes featurette featuring the cast, and promo videos.
