My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is the second movie for the popular superhero shonen anime, and it features several references and Easter eggs to the rest of the series. Our full list is outlined in the following article. That said, if we happened to miss one, please let us know in the comment section below.
As a warning, Heroes Rising takes place several arcs ahead of where the anime currently is and thus makes references to events and character developments that have yet to be seen outside the manga. If you’re all caught up on the manga, then you don’t have to worry about a thing. But if you only watch the anime, you may want to steer clear, as several of the characters and events in Heroes Rising reference back to story beats that likely won’t appear in the anime until Season 5.
Heroes Rising sees Izuku “Deku” Midoriya (Daiki Yamashita/Justin Briner), Katsuki Bakugo (Nobuhiko Okamoto/Clifford Chapin), and the rest of the superhero-in-training Class 1-A temporarily take over a hero agency on an island with a low crime rate. The hope is that the experience will teach the high school class how to behave as heroes without adult supervision. Though the job is fairly easy to handle at first, Class 1-A finds themselves cornered when the island is attacked by a group of powerful supervillains.
