From paper to anime, from there to the video game and soon to the real image: My Hero Academia (Boku no Hiro Academy) will have his own movie shot with flesh and blood actors -with the exception of those characters who are invisible, of course- and Netflix has secured the broadcast of the film on its video-on-demand platform in advance.
A move that makes a lot of sense. Beyond offering the first seasons as part of its anime catalogue, the company’s trend of bringing Japanese animation to live action continues. Of course, in this case there is an element to take into account: Legendary Pictures ( Jurassic World, Dunes either detective pikachu) is behind the project and has been shaping it since 2018.
My Hero Academia It is one of the most recent international successes of the Shueisha publishing house and it is in a very sweet moment even beyond the Japanese territory. Which makes a lot of sense: the work of Kohei Horikoshi combines the fascination for western superheroes with plots and high school characters and combats that drink from the best youth action manga of the Shōnen JUMP.
The information on the agreement with Netflix comes from the hands of The Hollywood Reporterwho has put several of the names on the table: Shinsuke Sato will be the director and producer of the film, while Joby Harold (Obi Wan Kenobi) will sign the script. However, at the moment the actors who will participate in the film have not been detailed. And we are not going to deny it, one of the claims of this adaptation will be to discover the aspect of the students of the UA in flesh and blood.
For Netflix’s part, the truth is that the streaming video giant has had much better luck with video game anime adaptations than working in the opposite direction. tried with Death Note Y cowboy bebop without much luck, at least for the spectators. With all the production one piece It’s already in the oven and you have the benefit of the doubt.
With everything, manga and anime fans have no time to be bored: Horikoshi’s work in print is slowly reaching its climax, while the sixth season of the animated series, which is streaming on Crunchyroll, continues to release episodes every week. And not only that: Izuku Midoriya, the protagonist of My Hero Academiahas already confirmed his arrival at fortnite.
