Funimation and TOHO collaborated to organize a worldwide premiere of the film with English subtitles at Anime Expo in July 2018. Subsequently, the English-dubbed version of the movie enjoyed a red carpet debut in Los Angeles that September. Funimation provides the following overview of the film’s plot:

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

Following the intense finals, U.A. High School prepares for its summer training camp. An unexpected invitation sends Deku and All Might abroad to the expansive artificial city, I-Island. This innovative island functions as a “scientific Hollywood,” amassing the expertise of global scientists. A grand event, I-Expo, is underway, showcasing advancements in Quirk and hero gadget research.

In the midst of this spectacle, Deku encounters Melissa, a Quirkless girl, prompting reflections on his own Quirkless past. Unexpectedly, the island’s formidable security system falls prey to villainous hackers, leading to the hostage-taking of all inhabitants. A plot with the potential to upend hero society unfolds. At its core stands All Might, the preeminent hero and embodiment of peace.

The creative genius behind the original manga, Kōhei Horikoshi, is credited with the foundational concept, character designs, and as the chief overseer. The film also reunites key talents, including director Kenji Nagasaki at BONES, scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi.

TOHO undertook the film’s distribution in Japan, while the theme song “Long Hope Philia” was masterfully performed by Masaki Suda. The song’s composition was the handiwork of Hiromu Akita from amazarashi.

Horikoshi’s contribution extends to the “All Might Rising” one-shot manga, exclusively available in the “Vol. Origin” booklets distributed to the first million moviegoers in Japan. Viz Media, meanwhile, presented the 10-page manga in English on its website at no cost.
