Anime / Re: My Hero Academia
« Last post by Spark Of Spirit on Today at 12:48:42 AM »
Because it should be posted here: My Hero Academia is getting an anime original movie in Summer 2018 which is most likely going to cover the back story of an unnamed character. It isn't said who it is, but I think manga readers have an idea.

In a bid to avoid spoilers, I'll put my theory below.

Spoiler
It's going to come out smack in the middle of season 3 which means it will most likely be focused on All Might's past with All For One. The first 13 episodes are going to end with the final fight between the two and passing on to the next generation. Releasing a movie focused on the history of their conflict makes sense. I don't think it will touch much on his predecessor's relationship with All For One or Shigaraki, though. That'll probably be revealed later in the manga.

But for the anime, it makes the most sense to focus it on All Might's past. This would be great since this is what I wanted to see most from a movie for this series.

As for season 3, the last 12 episodes of the season will cover the exam and the second Midoriya Vs Bakugo fight and end right before the Big 3's introduction, so there isn't much material there that would work with back story for the movie.

It's also important to note that Horikoshi said the movie is canon, like everything else in the anime.

Either way, this is good news for the series. New anime season, new movie, new manga arc, and new video game all set for next year means 2018 going to be big for MHA. And after the steady popularity increase over the last two years, I'm excited. It's good to see a series that deserves it get such a huge reaction.

You lost me. What does Dark Souls got to do with Lost Soul aside?
Tell that to the guy in the video. :D

I'm hoping for Ultra Instinct Goku, Jiren and Ultra Instinct Vegeta.

After the dumb decisions they've made in regards to Nintendo over the last few years, this is quite odd. It continues my theory that something big has happened internally.

As for what I want: Strider and the Disney Afternoon Collection. There aren't many recent Capcom games I'd care enough to have, but those two are the big ones.


Have they had any recent changes in management? Because that would explain it. Whatever it is, thank goodness something has helped them turn the corner!

Comics / Manga / Re: Currently Running Manga Discussion

I read the first chapter of Soukyuu no Ariadne by the creator of Claymore. If you are looking for a fun adventure manga, this might just be it. Totally different tone from his last two series.

Sunday seems to really be pushing for more adventure manga again.

Not going to lie, after this reveal I'm really hoping that the UI Goku/Vegeta DLC rumor is not true. We already have three versions of Goku and two of Vegeta. We don't need any more, unless it's Kid Goku.

At any rate I'm not surprised to see these characters being revealed, but I was honestly expecting them to end up as DLC as opposed to being part of the main game.

Goku Black/Zamasu team. Cool! That was exactly what I was hoping for.

So who exactly is left, at this point?

Slam Dunk by Production IG
Space Adventure Cobra by Trigger
Rokudenashi Blues by MAPPA
Ginga by White Fox
Otoko Ippiki Gaki Daisho by Madhouse
Circuit no Okami by TMS Entertainment
Kimagure Orange Road by Shaft (or some such studio)
Sexy Commando by Studio DEEN

It's wrote noting that the Shibuya Production's Cobra: Return of Joe Gillian animated series still appears on track for 2018 based on recent interviews, so that's a possible 4th adaption right there.  In any case, it'll be interesting to see if we get any classic anime adaption announcements at Jump Festa this week.
