About My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission
The third movie in the My Hero Academia movie series is called My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission. My Hero Academia, for those who don’t know, is a story about Izuku Midoriya’s journey to becoming the best hero in the world. Over 80% of the people in this anime world have a superpower, or “quirk,” as they call it, in the show.
Since everyone in the world had superpowers, being a “hero” became the most popular job. Izuku didn’t have any powers when he was born, so it was almost impossible for him to become a hero. After meeting Japan’s best hero, All Might, by chance, Izuku gets his power, One for All, which is one of the strongest quirks in the whole world. Deku has been training hard with the Symbol of Peace for months, and now he is ready to go to U.A. High School, Japan’s best hero school.
