My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising: A Best Start for 2020
4 March 2020 | by ajacayen-47694See all my reviews

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is an amazing follow-up to the 2015 anime series with the same name as it gives honor to the original source material with the same essence as to how the anime became popular until now. It is definitely better than its 2018 Two Heroes and gave me more action sequences and emotional moments that it definitely touched my heart a lot. Because of this it became one of my most favorite animated films of all time alongside Makoto Shinkai's Weathering with You and Your Name, Studio Ghibli's Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away, and other iconic films like Perfect Blue, Ghost in the Shell and Akira and overall favorite films of all time and of 2020.

The film executes the story well and gives more emphasis on the development of the Class 1-A characters wherein they all share an important role in the film regardless if it is major or minor to the story. The animation is definitely outstanding like in the anime series that all the action sequences are all so beautiful and amazing to watch just like a Marvel or DC comic book film. What made the film so special is the chemistry of all the students with one another, most especially Midoriya and Bakugo. Hence, the two main protagonists were the characters that took the whole film by a storm because of their symbolism of determination and teamwork in order for evil to be stopped. I cried a lot in the film that I couldn't even stop imagining how they could come up with a story like this that would really surprise not only me but also to the fans of the show. I felt that everything that I expected from this sequel exceeded beyond plus ultra.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is definitely worth the watch as I just said in the first paragraph that in every aspect of the film, it will not leave you bored but will make you entertained, sympathize and as well remember how great it is to witness such an outstanding film adaptation of the manga. For those who have watched Midoriya, Bakugo, Uraraka, Todoroki and the rest of Class 1-A from season 1 to season 4, even up until the two animated films, you are definitely going to be satisfied with what you are going to witness. Trust me, all the culmination of the progression of the show are all worth it and honoring it is to witness such an extraordinary event.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising - Grade: A = 5/5 - Loved it
