The Perfect Storyline - My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission!

A group of people who call themselves Humarise are members of a doomsday cult that believes quirks will one day grow so strong that they would be responsible for the demise of humanity. 

They have planted bombs all across the world that are full of a gas called “Trigger.” This gas kills people who utilise Quirks by causing their Quirks to get out of control, which causes them to pass out and die. The leader of this group, Flect Turn, has devised a plan to save humanity by eliminating the Quirk population with these explosives. 

As soon as Humarise detonates its first Trigger Bomb, the World Heroes Association sends Pro Heroes and students from the U.A. High Hero Course to Humarise’s targets in the hope that they might defuse the remaining explosives. Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, and Shoto Todoroki are some of the individuals who are dispatched to the nation of Otheon, which is believed to be the location of Humarise’s primary headquarters. They are placed on standby after the Heroes look everywhere for Humarise but come up empty-handed.

Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki are out and about when they come across a gem heist that is currently taking place. Midoriya goes after the thieves while Todoroki and Bakugo go after their courier, Rody Soul. Rody Soul is a street urchin who took the job in order to provide for his younger brothers. Todoroki and Bakugo are hot on their trail. 

In the meantime, Allan Kay, a Humarise scientist, manages to escape with an important briefcase but is confronted by a Humarise agent named Beros, who causes him to crash his car in the midst of Midoriya and Rody’s pursuit. The briefcase belonging to Kay is taken by accident by Rody only a moment before Midoriya discovers him. They are quickly ambushed by the authorities, but Midoriya and Rody manage to get away with the help of Blackwhip.

Following the public accusation of mass murder levelled against Midoriya by Otheon’s chief of police, who is a member of Humarise, Midoriya follows Todoroki’s advice and withdraws from society. Midoriya and Rody make their way to the neighbouring country of Klayd, which is not within the jurisdiction of the Otheon police. Midoriya sends a secret message to Todoroki informing him of his new location, and Todoroki immediately departs with Bakugo to meet Midoriya there. That night, Rody experiences homesickness and makes a covert report to the police regarding the suitcase.

When the officers arrive, they reveal themselves to be agents of Humarise, and they attack him. Midoriya is able to save Rody after being roused from sleep by Pino, the bird that is Rody’s companion; nevertheless, he suffers an injury at the hands of Beros during the battle. During the time that Rody is tending to Midoriya’s wounds, he expresses his regrets to him and explains that he and his siblings were shunned as a consequence of their father’s decision to join Humarise. Midoriya is healed.

Beros launches an assault on the two at the Klayd border, but they are rescued by Bakugo and Todoroki, and Beros ends his life by hanging himself in an effort to avoid being captured. In the wake of the incident, Midoriya unearths a concealed compartment in the briefcase that contains a puzzle that Rody used to like playing with when he was younger. Rody is able to figure it out and discovers a USB device as well as a data disc within. 

The disc holds a message from Kay, in which he discloses that he and Eddy Soul, Rody’s father, were compelled by Humarise to construct the Trigger bombs. The message comes from the disc. The device has a kill code that may be entered into the bombs that Kay and Eddy have developed. As a result of Humarise’s announcement that they will blow their remaining bombs in two hours, the heroes who have been deployed are now have to struggle through the resulting global fear in order to locate them.

On board a plane flown by Rody, Midoriya and the other members of the group travel to the headquarters of Humarise with the device. Bakugo and Todoroki are forced to deal with high-ranking Humarise goons, while Midoriya is forced to face Flect Turn, whose Quirk reflects whatever comes into contact with him. Midoriya is unable to overcome Flect Turn’s natural defences, in addition to the laser onslaught that he is launching. 

Midoriya is surprised when Rody shows there and appears to betray him by handing over the device in exchange for the protection of his brothers. Midoriya, on the other hand, is able to recognise that it is a ruse because of Pino, who is actually Rody’s sentient Quirk that expresses the individual’s genuine emotions and intents. As a result, Flect Turn is caught off guard. 

Midoriya realises that Flect Turn’s Quirk has a cap on the amount of damage it can withstand before it is defeated, so she uses One for All Full Cowl at its maximum level to overwhelm Flect Turn with an onslaught of strikes. In the meantime, Rody makes his way to the control system for the Trigger Bombs.

Despite being injured by the laser defence system, he and Pino barely manage to implant the device in time, which stops the Trigger Bombs from going off. In the wake of the conflict, the surviving members of Humarise are taken into custody, while the Heroes go to the hospital to get treated for their wounds. 

Both Midoriya and Rody shed some tears as they said their final goodbyes to one another before Midoriya left for Japan. Rody finds a job as a bartender and continues to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot while the members of Class 1-A get back together at U.A.

Manga Adaptation of My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission

The special tie-in volume known as Volume World Heroes was distributed simultaneously with the premiere to audiences in both Japan and the United States. Kohei Horikoshi is responsible for the inclusion of idea sketches, interviews, and a new chapter in this film, just as he was the case with the previous two movies. 

The Hawks: Soothe chapter serves as a precursor to the events that take place in the movie, and it was eventually adapted into an OVA that was included in the Blu-Ray version of the film. Outside of Japan, this is the very first time that a special tie-in volume has been made available.

In addition, to coincide with the debut of the film, a bonus chapter was published in Weekly Shonen Jump. This chapter was written by Yoco Akiyama, who had previously authored highlight chapters for the previous two films. This chapter, which is also a prequel and is titled “Endeavor’s Mission,” focuses on the trainees’ attempts to pass Endeavor’s screening process in order to participate in the mission.

The general agreement among the website’s reviewers is that “My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission is an entertaining diversion between seasons of the series.” This statement can be seen on the website. Based on the opinions of 4 different critics, the movie has received a weighted average score of 51 out of 100 on Metacritic, which indicates “mixed or mediocre reviews.” According to Cinema Today, the film’s audience consisted of 76.5% females, which is a significantly higher percentage of women than the targeted male market.

Rafael Motamayor, writing for IGN, awarded the video game My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission an eight out of ten, praising the game’s visuals, which he said “out-Marvel the,” as well as the villains’ motivations, which he said were inspired by the graphic novel X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills. He had the opinion that the movie “captures the heart of early Stan Lee and Steve Ditko Spider-Man comics,” particularly the “realistic attitude” to Deku with his newly discovered power and its “sheer optimism in the face of huge stakes.” 

ComingSoon.net’s Hayes Madsen awarded the movie an identical score of eight out of ten and commented on the “greater emphasis on exaggerated expressions for characters and action scenes.” Due to the expanding globe of the franchise, he complimented the picture for having a “sense of scope and gravitas that the previous two films simply didn’t have,” although he thought that the growth of the antagonist was “lacking.”

The film was given a grade of “C+” by Richard Eisenbeis of Anime News Network. He praised the animation and the plot hook, but he had negative things to say about the characters and how they developed. In an article that she penned for the website /Film, Caroline Cao expressed her opinion that the movie was “strong enough in its watchability, crowd-pleasing action, sight gags, and central connection,” but she faulted the movie for its lack of scale. Her conclusion was that the movie did “nothing overtly novel with Deku’s quest to become a Hero,” despite the fact that she mentioned Deku’s charming friendship with Rody.
