    It seems that there's no way around it: it is canon.

    And that is an extremely dick move from Horikoshi. Forcing us to watch a movie, when there are people who are very content being a manga-only person. I mean, Oda, for example, never made any of the movies of One Piece canon even if it had a perfect tie to the plot for the sake of his readers.

    So, bad move Horikoshi, extremely distasteful.

    The only reason you should watch the movie Is if the evnts there end up influencing any actual event of the manga heavily. No matter how canon it Is unless you are interested a lot in AMs past theres no reason to watch

    I guess its technically canon but its nonessential to the manga that's not really a problem- its 'canon' in the way Agents of Shield is canon to the MCU- not many people watch it but it exists. The only real impact being canon has is that the movie does not contradict the manga. It's a spinoff like Vigilantes.

    It's neither written nor directed by Horikoshi himself (who only had a guiding role), which shows, there are certain parts of the movie that I find questionable either characterization-wise or just generally
    Spoiler:
    mostly Wolfram being stronger than All Might
    I basically treat it like Vigilantes, kinda-sorta-but-not-really canon.

    It's not part of the story Hori is telling- which should only consist of material written by the man himself.

    Canon or not it does not impact the manga in any way. You don't even have to watch it, even though you should

    I do. But I watch it whenever I have the time, it's one of the best anime adaptations in recent times. Only second to JJBA's.
    I'd sooner vote Trump than 21st Century Hitler.

    I haven’t seen the movie yet but I thought the villain gets stronger because of some power enhancing quirk he got from AfO.

    Well, I imagine you can read most of its content on relevant Wiki-pages anyways. But I get your point.
