    My Hero Academia

    And now a live action film has been announced to be in the works. https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/10/24/my-hero-academia-live-action-movie-reportedly-in-development For the longest I've been believing that a live action movie was going to happen, so I'm not surprised at this. Nothing on who is being casted and such, but we do know - Legendary Entertainment is working on the film (King Kong, Jurassic World, Detective Pikachu movie) - Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter from Legendary will be working on the film, while it's being supervised by Ryosuke Yoritomi over in Japan from Shueisha - TOHO will be distributing the film in Japan
  3. Yeah, JoJo will have representation in the game. Hopefully it's different JoJo's such as Jotaro, Josuke, or Giorno this time around. Also, Namco hit me up with a beta code but I'm guessing the beta isn't starting yet? Tried following the times that was listed on the website and no luck so far getting in to play.

    My Hero Academia

    Going back to the theaters this Saturday to watch it for a third time! PLUS ULTRA!!!! Also, shout out to everyone that has managed to make this happen so far! While, yes, this is only including sales data for the first two days and not last night to make three days (It should update some time today with Thursday sales), we've still managed to push Hero Academia close to 2 million in sales in only two days! If you want to monitor and keep up with the sales for the movie, you can check it out here: https://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=myheroacademia.htm ALSO!!! According to IGN recent article, because the movie has been performing so strongly, there's been additional days added by theaters to meet demands of people wanting to see this movie! Originally it was supposed to run for 5 exclusive days (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Tuesday of Oct 2nd), but now I've seen that there are listings for the movie for Friday the 28th and Sunday the 30th! https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/09/27/my-hero-academia-two-heroes-opens-strongly-at-the-box-office I can certainly see Hero Academia reaching 3 to 4 million in box office sales!
  6. So, I'm seeing the Hero Academia movie for a 3rd and final time this Saturday. 

    Really looking forward to enjoying the English dub one more time!

    My Hero Academia

    Yup! The entire story is basically being narrated by Future Deku. So, we already know he'll become a great one in the future and such. (I guess it possibly was obvious this is a Shonen lol), but we're just heading towards that great event that turns him into one. For what it's worth, he's still a 1st year at U.A. There's 3 term years in Japan, so we still have a ways to go until he becomes a 3rd year and graduates, and whether or not we'll see the Class 1-A kids as future Pro Heroes doing work (like a Shippuden version of Hero) is up in the entire, honestly. I guess it depends on how much Shigaraki develops his League of Villains group during Deku's time as a 2nd and 3rd year at U.A. That'll decide the length of the story, I'm sure. But hey, hopefully you can get more into Hero as the story progresses. If you've been keeping up with the anime then But yeah. If the slice of life/down periods still aren't your thing, I hope the main story about One For All/All For One is gripping enough to keep you here for the long Shonen ride!
  9. I can't wait to see the Hero Academia movie again tonight, but this time in Japanese with English subs...

      What would someone who's still at the part before they start their internships get spoiled by in this movie?

    2. Fletch

      Fletch

      Absolutely nothing! As long as you've finished season 2, you're perfectly fine. The movie takes place between the end of season 2 and start of season 3! 😃

    My Hero Academia

    It won't change. It was stated in chapter 1 that this is how Deku becomes the greatest. Hero will be more like Naruto than One Piece in terms of reaching its end goal/endgame. One Piece is more of an adventure driven story where while you do care about what exactly One Piece is and Luffy being the KIng of the Pirates, you're not supposed to prioritize it over the adventure at hand. Naruto/Hero is about you really prioritizing Naruto/Deku reaching their dreams and watching their struggles of starting from 0 (Nothing) to 100 (Hokage/Greatest Hero) I mean, the only thing is that the world of Naruto started off simple, but as characters grew up, the world changed. More politics were involved, past issues that were greatly ignored were carried into the present time and started to become a problem, and eventually it turned into a full blown war. The same will happen with Hero (as we've been seeing) where Hero Society at large will be changing and challenged on what Heroes really are, what Villains really are, etc. The whole story of One For All/All For One will continue to get more and more complex until Deku and Shigaraki have their final clash to potentially end everything that's been going on for generations. We may very well get a war-ish arc in Hero as endgame between Pro Heroes and Shigaraki's massive army of villains, but at the end, Deku and the Heroes will come out on top and Deku will be the new symbol Japan needs, just like how Naruto eventually became the key symbol that Konoha and every other ninja country needed to save the day. Believe me, Hero won't be like One Piece. Kohei Horikoshi (mangaka of Hero) isn't like Eiichiro Oda (mangaka of One Piece) at all. Horikoshi has stated before in interviews he always planned Hero to be a concise story and you can see Hero is a fast paced Shonen story, compared to Oda who knows how he'll end the story, but he constantly keeps coming up with new ideas to extend the life of it since he enjoys it. And there's only so much that can be done with Hero story compared to One Piece expansive world. (Sorry for long reply! I just love writing!)

    My Hero Academia

    That's pretty understandable and the slice of life moments after the big fights/villain arcs is a complaint for some. Personally love the SoL moments/cool down moments to death because of the character interactions and all the set up for future events. Though, I can imagine the flip flop between villain arc to school arc gets tiring for some since everything comes back to U.A. school as the reset point. The overall goal really is to watch Deku become the greatest hero and watch him deal with being the next generation user to deal with OFA/AFO, along with him and his classmates being nurtured into becoming future Pro Heroes.

    My Hero Academia

    Seen My Hero Academia: Two Heroes day 1 in theaters tonight. Absolutely amazing. Full blown spoiler thoughts below. DO NOT OPEN THIS UNTIL YOU'VE WATCHED THE MOVIE. GO WATCH THE MOVIE! NOW!
  13. My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is the best movie I've seen all year. Absolutely amazing. 

    Had such a fun time with friends tonight and thank you Funimation for retweeting my Hero post on Twitter. lmao Hero Hype out here trending!

  14. This is freaking hype. Yakuza action mixed with detective gameplay?! Sign me up!!! Aaahhh, I'm so freaking hyped for this game. The Yakuza developers stay making great games with great gameplay, and I'm glad to see them move into a new project and still with a very gripping and interesting Japanese crime drama story. I'm loving SEGA more and more for this.
  15. Glad I traded in a bunch of old games towards Spider-Man. The game is absolutely amazing. I've never in my life bought a superhero video game until today with Spider-Man, and I'm pretty happy with my purchase. Insomiac deserves praise for their work here. Not finished with it yet, but if they make a sequel I'll certainly buy.

  16. I really do love My Hero Academia One's Justice. Game is incredibly fun. Shoot Style Deku will probably stay my main, but will train as others. 

  17. My Japanese import copy of the game arrived yesterday, so I was able to put in some solid hours into the game at and after work (literally stayed up until 4 in the morning playing this game) Random as heck thoughts below. Tried to give each mode a decent amount of time but mainly put more time into the actual fighting modes (story, mission, VS, online) more than the fanservice modes (customization, etc) I purchased the Nintendo Switch version, so exclusive thoughts on performance added. - Story mode is pretty decent. I can't imagine many people putting too much time into this, especially if you read the superior manga or anime adaptation because the game doesn't do that great of a job of presenting the amazing story. It gets the job done with some nice anime screenshots and also it's fully voiced in Japanese, which is a bit neat. You do need to complete the story mode to unlock All For One, which I'm still doing. I finished the Stain arc so far. - Mission mode is also pretty decent. The gist of things is that there's some maps you play through that contain a set amount of missions within them, and the more you advance through a map, the higher the difficulty it becomes. I've completed 2 maps thus far, and so far everything has equated into just winning the match with the only real differences being that your opponents may deal more damage, have more health, may have 2 supports and you have none, etc. Really basic stuff. You choose 3 characters to take into mission mode and you can switch between them before starting a fight. If you lose, then everyone regains full health and you just continue where you left off. - The core gameplay is incredibly fun. It's an 3D open brawler but it feels incredibly smooth and satisfying to land hits. There are combos that you can pull off, and there's a training mode for you to go ahead and learn some combos and figure out which supports characters are best to use. Game never felt slow in motion, especially since there's a dash mechanic added and matches can go by really quick if you know what you're doing and you're good at punishing/reading your opponents. The game is honestly pretty big on punishing. You can try and rush down your opponent if you like, but more than likely they'll block and punish you for doing so. For a 3D anime fighter, it honestly does have some depth in the mechanics... You can guard, use super armor attacks (where you can attack the enemy while they hit you, but it won't stop your attack), dash cancel to string into combos, level 1 and 2 specials, use two support characters, and even guard break an opponent and leave them dizzy. (Shoot Style Deku is great doing this) There's only 20 characters right off the bat (3 DLC characters will all together be added, with the first being Shoot Style Deku who is already out) and you can use all of them the moment you boot up the game. Everyone is incredibly unique in their own ways ranging from OG Deku have close and long ranged attacks, Kaminari being tricky with setting lightning attacks and getting stronger the more lightning he uses, Kirishima being a straight tank in armor mode, or Shigaraki have an instant kill mode he can use anytime in the match. I've honestly used only a few characters so far (OG Deku, Shoot Style Deku, Bakugo, Gran Torino, Iida, and Shoto), but so far my absolute favorite is Shoot Style Deku. He deals out much less damage than the original Deku and doesn't have any long ranged attacks either, so technically speaking, original Deku IS the better version, but I feel Shoot Style allows you to string some nice combos together and fill your gauge up quite a bit. It feels satisfying landing hits with him for me, and I like how visually pleasing his attacks are. - Online was honestly pretty smooth. I never noticed any lag within any of my matches. The lag is always at the very start with the intros of the characters, but it feels like the intros just suck all the lag up and the game plays perfectly fine. You can play ranked, casual, have private rooms for you and friends. I mainly played casual mode the entire time, but maybe I'll hop on rank soon. I did fight one Japanese(?) Toga player that after I managed to beat them since they were trying to spam attacks, they rage quit on me, and really, there's no penalties at all for doing so which is a shame. Other than that one player, I've played a ton of players from Japan and some who were clearly from the West (possibly America) and everything went well. Great people online so far. - There's...a lot of customization in the game. TONS of items you can use to customize your characters and your player card. I've looked around a bit and I'm impressed how much fanservice is packed in here, along with so...many...unlockables... Unlock the game music, unlock accessories, unlock images such as anime promotional art or concept art, etc. It's a lot. - Since this is the Nintendo Switch version, it does play at 30fps, 720p. That's docked and in handheld mode. For the most part, it plays well. It does get a bit laggy on the character selection screen where there's a slight delay which flipping through the characters, but that's very minor. Really... I was honestly a bit nervous thinking this would be like a very bad port or whatever that wouldn't run well compared to the PS4 version, but it runs incredibly fine and I'm pretty happy I got it. Even in handheld mode, fights play just fine and the hype is still there. I haven't experienced really any big problems with the Switch version so far! As the first Hero Academia console fighter, I think it's good. It definitely can be better with like a better story mode and maybe some additional modes added to the game like a tournament more or something, but the gameplay is great fun. Honestly, if you're getting this game, then you're definitely getting it to play online with others. Playing against the CPU is fine, but I feel after awhile it may get boring and you may want more of a challenge from actual people. I mean, I have enjoyed the single player content here, but that's possibly just me. I know a lackluster story mode, comic book story presentation, mission mode, or a bunch of silly customizables probably won't be too much to hold the attention to a casual person buying the game. Maybe if you're a die hard Hero Academia fan like me, then maybe... Worth importing? Nah. Unless you're a super die hard like me that couldn't wait and even imports the manga in Japanese and stuff, then not really. The U.S. version literally is right around the corner on October 26th. There's plenty of great games to hold you off until then. Worth the $60 U.S. price tag? Eh... Maybe like a solid $30/$40. It's a good game, yeah, you should get it, but I find it hard to sell anyone that aren't obsessed fans to really drop $60 on the game. Excuse me as I keep playing as Shoot Style Deku...
  18. Rogersbase uploaded the One Piece vs My Hero Academia stream. (Contains spoilers, need to be caught up to at least both series)

      Id like to watch this but there are probably spoilers in it right?

    2. Fletch

      Fletch

      Yeah, up to the latest manga chapter. I should edit this to preface it that you need to be caught up to about both to really enjoy and not get spoiled. My bad.

  19. Always just assumed that either Encore is the canon one because it's from the actual game, or whatever is canon would come in Mania 2. Personally, I don't care much which is canon. The Mania story gets screwed up the moment Mania ends and goes into Sonic Forces territory. It's a shame that something simple like a story revolving around the Phantom Ruby, or a classic Sonic story couldn't be handled correctly and have full cohenrency and consistency.

  20. Openly welcome this decision to let someone else develop it. SEGA just allowing their old franchises to live again is one of the best decisions ever, and I'll continue to hope that a Jet Set Radio revival eventually happens with Hideki Naganuma over the music once more.
  21. Tempted to buy tickets to see My Hero Academia: Two Heroes in theater for all 5 days it's showing...

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Would it be Ten Heroes, then?

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Wait, they're releasing this movie dubbed in theaters?

      *checks*

      Oooh!

      Seriously, Sailor Moon this month, MHA and Digimon in next month, Pokemon 21 in November, and Dragon Ball Super in January? I'm gonna see more films in the next few months than I've seen in the past 10 years.

    3. Fletch

      Fletch

      So many great anime films in theaters. Most recent anime film I saw was Night Is Short, Walk On Girl and that was amazing. Will probably see Dragon Ball Super movie in theaters, but not sure on Pokemon just yet.

  22. Fletch

    My Hero Academia

    Mm... Well, I know that Naruto has two moves that are canon to its story, but it's literally the final two movies that have been created for the franchise. (Naruto: The Last which takes place between chapters 699 and 700, and Boruto: The Movie which takes place after chapter 700) But honestly, it's not so common for anime movies to really be canon to the actual manga story itself. It's definitely becoming more common for the actual mangaka creators to be involved with the movie projects (i.e. Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, and Hero Academia mangaka writing the story/script/doing character designs for their recent anime movies!)
  23. Fletch

    My Hero Academia

    Here's what Horikoshi said in an interview! 😃 Interviewer: The movie contains an original story, but does it have any correlation to the current story in the serialized manga? Horikoshi: I always wanted to include a chapter about All Might’s past, or rather, I thought that I definitely NEED to write about his past. In the movie, the young All Might is shown studying abroad in America, and I thought this might not be something that could be brought up anymore in the actual manga story up until now, so I saw the movie as a chance to present this. Of course, without a doubt, the movie and manga are adjoined, and the movie is connected to the manga story that happens after it. source: http://aitaikimochi.tumblr.com/post/176087454621?is_related_post=1 So, the movie is definitely connected to the manga itself and seems to definitely feel canon. It takes place in the middle of season 2 and 3, so right after the mall incident with Shigaraki we can assume that 1. Deku and friends had the Summer class with the murder mystery and All Might received notification to visit I-Island to see Melissa and David. 2. The Hero movie starts 3. Everyone comes back and start Summer training for the school trip since there's time between the events that happened at the mall and the school trip. You can kinda add All Might: Rising story and Melissa's story anywhere you would like since those are mostly flashback stories to All Might youthful days.

    My Hero Academia

    Hopefully by reading those it'll help enhance your enjoyment of the upcoming movie since it's all canon story material! I also enjoyed the little silly story here and consider it a canon story (it fits in the timeline just fine) only because of the fact it ties into the movie...which is basically connected to the manga, according to Horikoshi, so canon in my book.
