Paris, November 28th 2018 - VIZ Media Europe, leader in Japanese Entertainment content in Europe, is thrilled to announce the release of the first My Hero Academia movie in French cinemas from January 22nd, in association with CGR Events.

 

After a successful launch last summer in Japan and USA, the movie has already hit major box office milestone, with more than 14M$ revenue up-to-date!

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes will be released in both French-dubbed and subtitles versions, in 150 movie theaters across France.

The film will also be previewed at Le Grand Rex in Paris on January 21st.

 

Synopsis:

The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island.

This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research.

In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past.

Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages!

Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.

 

My Hero Academia is the subject of many news these days in France, with the TV broadcast of the animated series on TFX channel (TF1 Group) that started on November 18th, and the launch of the multiplatform video game "My Hero: One's Justice" by Bandai Namco on October 26th.

The series is also broadcasted on Toonami and J-One, and available on Anime Digital Network (ADN) platform and in DVD/Blu-ray at Kazé.

The publisher Ki-oon, which has already sold more than 1,5 million copies of My Hero Academia manga in France, is about to launch in January a series of novels based on this title phenomenon.

VIZ Media Europe, the European leader in managing rights for Japanese animated series, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the second season of the most expected anime this year: My Hero Academia.

VIZ Media Europe has acquired the distribution rights (Simulcast, TV, VoD, DVD, Blu-ray and merchandising) for the second season of My Hero Academia, in Europe (except United Kingdom and Nordic Countries), Middle-East and Africa. Adapted from the eponymous manga series that was created by Kohei Horikoshi and published in France by Ki-oon, My Hero Academia takes place in a society where 80 % of the population possesses super-powers (also known as ‘‘Alter’’). Izuku Midoriya, a student in the Oridera secondary school, has none. His powers have not emerged... and will probably never do. Next year, he will have to go to high-school, and even without an alter, he has decided on joining the esteemed Yuei academy where all the strongest superheroes have been trained...

Simulcast
This second season of My Hero Academia will start to air in Japan on Nippon TV and Yomiuri TV, every Saturday at 5:30pm (local time) starting on April 1st, and will lead to a simulcast in several countries in Europe. For France and Germany, Anime Digital Network and Anime on Demand will respectively broadcast this exciting sequel.

Some figures...
My Hero Academia is currently one of the most expected animated series on the market. Prepublished since July 2014 in the biggest shonen magazine in Japan,
(Weekly Shonen Jump, Shueisha), it has never stopped growing. The franchise is expanding globally with strong sales performances. In France, the first seven volumes of the manga have sold more than 280,000 copies in a few months (source: GFK), while the first anime season has generated more than 4 million views on French streaming platform Anime Digital Network.
