My Hero Academia Movie 2: Heroes: Rising Plot:
In a world full of young superheroes who possess all kinds of abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting to flying, Izuki Midoriya, unfortunately, is one of those few people who lack these powers. Like every other child of his age, he would often dream of being a hero but now he is left with nothing but a notepad where he scribbles his admiration for all the heroes he looks up to. But eventually, his passion and his patience for “quirks” pay off and All Might, who is the number one superhero, decides to make Izuki his successor. Soon Izuki finds himself training to become a superhero along with all the young men and women who possess these so-called “quirks”. With heavy competition and also the looming threat of a grand villainous evil force, Izuki must learn to quickly adapt to his new environment and eventually become the superhero that he is destined to be.
When it comes to the movie, nothing much has been revealed about its plot. But from the trailer, we can tell that a new supervillain, known as Nine, will be introduced. He seems to have a connection with the All for One, one of the biggest bad guys in the series, as he dresses up as All Might’s archenemy and even wears the same headgear. Somewhere around the end of the trailer, we also get to see Midoriya and Bakugo who are both injured and once again have seemingly teamed up to defeat this new supervillain.
My Hero Academia Movie 2: Heroes: Rising Characters:
Katsuragi is one of the main characters of the series who is a student at the U.A. High School. For his age, he has an average height with a slim yet muscular build. He has long spiky ash blonde hair that rests all the way down to his eyebrows. At school, he wears a very baggy version of the uniform with pants that rest way below his waist. At the beginning of the series, he is overconfident, arrogant and short-tempered. He comes off as more of an anti-hero and even as a villain for those who don’t know him too well. Much later, he turns into a slightly better person after he faces several defeats from other strong opponents.
During his battles, he may not always be the strongest contender, but it is his perceptive skills and intelligence that allow him to deduce the weaknesses of his opponents. In the beginning, he would often smile during his battles just to mock his opponents and would even show off his skills for no reason. But later he learns that he should never underestimate his opponents and should also never lose focus when he’s in the middle of a fight. He prefers staying solitary most of the time and avoids making any close friends. But he slowly matures over a period of time and manages to get close to a few of his classmates. He also loves breaking rules and disregards the idea of not using quirks in public. Even for the silliest things, he does not hold himself back from using his quirks just to show off. He is also very honest and loyal to those who are very close to him.
Izuku ends up being one of those few humans who do not possess any superpowers. But later, after he shows a lot of commitment, “All Might” passes on his powers to him and makes him the ninth holder of “One for All”. For his age, he is really petite and also has a very childish face. He has fluffy dark green hair that stick out in all different directions on his head. Initially in the series, he is extremely frail and skinny but after training with All Might for a long time, he ends up packing on some muscle.
When it comes to his personality, he is a timid boy who is polite to everyone and often gives exaggerated reactions to the most insignificant situations. He has a really strong will and just like Katsuki, he is extremely intelligent when it comes to forming strategies for battles. He takes note of every minor detail that he notices during battles and then later uses this to his own advantage.
