Horikoshi previously teased that the film will be the last one for the franchise, as "there won't be a third film. Probably." He explained that the second film can be described as a kind of a finale for My Hero Academia. That is because its story uses one of the concepts he had wanted to use in the manga's final battle. As such, he proclaimed that the second film will be more "Plus Ultra" than even the first one.
recap on the staff
The film will open in Japan on December 20. Kenji Nagasaki and Yousuke Kuroda are returning from the series and the previous film as the director and scriptwriter, respectively. Yoshihiko Umakoshi is returning to design the characters, and Yuuki Hayashi is once again composing the musi. BONES is animating the film.
Musical actor Yoshio Inoue as Nine, a Villain chasing after Tomura Shigaraki. His background and reason for chasing after Shigaraki are unknown. In order to achieve his own ideals and accomplish his objectives, he attacks the island of Nabutō.
Mio Imada (live-action Boys Over Flowers Season 2) as Slice, a Villain and close associate of Nine. She was "betrayed by humanity" in the past and has learned not to trust anyone, but she agrees with Nine's ideals. Her Quirk allows her to use her hair as a bladed weapon.

The manga will be in a booklet that participating theaters will distribute with a one-million-copy print run. The booklet will also have an extended interview with Horikoshi, character designs, original character sketches for the movie's new characters, and a new cover illustration:
In addition to getting a manga, there is also a novel version of the film in the works:

If you are familiar with Yuichi Nakamura, he will be playing Hawks.

He is the youngest Pro Hero ever to make the top 10 ranking. Though he is a major player in the world of heroes, he also has a somewhat enigmatic air about him.

Master Menos: Dream: I've always been a PC guy anyways. (Yeah, that was funny!)

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
