My Hero Academia, also known as Boku no Hero Academia in Japan, is a popular anime series that has gained a huge following over the years. While the TV series has already made its mark on fans worldwide, it’s no surprise that the franchise decided to expand and release movies as well.
The My Hero Academia Movies are some of the most highly anticipated films for fans who want to see their favorite characters from U.A High School come alive on the big screen. The movies add more depth to the storyline while introducing new villains for our heroes to face and new allies for them to befriend.
Despite being standalone stories with alternative plotlines and scenarios compared to the original manga or TV show, one question keeps popping up: when should you watch these movies?
Let’s look at each movie below:
1. My Hero Academia: Two Heroes
Released in 2018 between season 2 and season 3, this movie was set after Season 2 but before Season 3. It serves as an origin story of sorts showcasing how All Might and David Shield (Melissa’s father) met during their younger days. This bond between two of the smartest minds had created unique technological advancements decades ago which would soon become relevant again due to unforeseen circumstances.
This movie is great for those who want more backstory on All Might outside of what we have seen in seasons one and two. Also, it features plenty of comedy bits featuring class A1 students having fun at I-Island theme park with surprises along thier way like loveable Melissa shield’s high tech hero item upgrades etc.This film doesn’t directly connect with any particular arc or event in both Season 2 or Season three so watching it anytime will not create confusion.
However, if this is your first time diving into MHA universe we recommend starting from episodes episode1 – 25 of season one then jumping straight into “TwoHeroes” before continuing with episode 26
2. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising
Released in December 2019, this movie takes place after season 4 but a few months before the Cultural festival and Endeavour Agency Arcs. When the heroes of Class A are deployed to an isolated island as part of their training responding to a high-risk scenario that requires them to face off against the powerful Nine and his follower group who aim to restructure society.
This film also sets up some potential conflicts for future seasons since it showcases Izuku’s character development growth as well Bakugo’s rivalry partnership dynamic.This movie is best watched at any time after you’ve finished Season 3 and Season 4 episodes up until Episode12; which serves as a transition point where Deku, Bakugo & Todoroki were on their winter break heading back into school.
In conclusion, each MHA Movie has its own standalone story that can be enjoyed regardless if you have watched every season or just starting out. However it’the animated movies should be seen according to timeline mainly Two Heroes between season two and three while Heroes Rising fits more closely within the events showcasing developments mostly post-Season four depending on how far along do you want your anime journey extended from watching an adaptation alone. Regardless though, whichever order they decide watching these films will certainly enhance thier love even more for our favorite quirks wielding students like never before!
