    I've been able to get MHA dvds that aren't blue ray in the USA and the blue ray version also comes with a regular version as well. I suspect the movie will do the same--at least here.

    Movie finally got a full release here in Singapore, summary on my thoughts

    - Plot was good for an anime movie, doesn't compare to any of the actual manga arcs (even the below average ones). Lots of humor, some of which stuck and others didn't. Ochako, Bakugou and Deku were the highlights in that regard. Mineta was hit and miss.

    - Animation was fantastic, and the action was good enough I can almost forgive the film for cutting into Season 3's budget and workload.

    - Tokoyami's and Tsuyu's absence from the main plot was kinda jarring, though the latter would probably have just spent the whole movie chewing them out about how they were just as bad as Wolfram for trying to save everyone :bookerskully

    - Bakugou and Todoroki were the cavalry in every single one of their appearances, which got unintentionally hilarious the 3rd or 4th time. Bakugou getting that much action does make the scene where the Pussycats highlight his experience make more sense if one were to consider this canon.

    - Speaking of the two, the bit where Todo first turns up and beats Bakugou's timing in the robot-killing competition got the whole audience clapping.

    - Kaminari was completely useless, which was surprising but actually makes complete sense given where the film is chronologically, he only got competent recently. Jirou on the other hand got quite abit of love, being consistently competent and on-the-ball compared to her peers.

    - I liked the Shields, they were well-fleshed out characters I wouldn't be opposed to turning up in canon at some point. I got spoiled on the
    Spoiler:
    surprise twist of David's role as one of the antagonists, but I was impressed by the believable and interesting way it was handled.


    - Wolfram was a generic villain who was completely underdeveloped, and his quirk usage wasn't exactly inspired considering what magnetism can do. His amped form looked cool but I wasn't a fan of him being stronger than All Might (and All for One by extension). Double Detroit Smash was awesome though.

    - All Might doing a to defeat Wolfram is the new greatest thing ever.

    Overall good movie, but the fan/theatre experience definitely added alot to my enjoyment of it. Probably give it an 8/10.

    Just watched it ... :bury

    Not bad for an anime movie. Here are my comments, Major spoilers ahead.
    Spoiler:

    • The animation was top notch. They really put a lot of effort in the animation!
    • The humor is on point. Like almost every scene brings some laughs over. Todoroki pwning everyone in the timed contest, Mineta's existence, Bakugou raging and being such a tsundere :fatcat I love it. The scene with Todoroki smilling while Bakugou acting all tsundere is so darn cute :catadorbs
    • Speaking of Bakugou and Todoroki... I didn't know they'd make a good team until this movie. The movie made it pretty clear who the top three is Bakugou and Todo are that. Bakugou kicking arse is amazing :bury
    • Everyone has their time to shine, its nice that BONES doesn't show bias, they gave everyone their moment.
    • I like the creative uses of quirks too. Really nice touch.
    • I like Mineta a lot in this movie, he is always the one bringing laughter in the cinema and his snarking is great. :lmao
    • Kaminari is hilariously useless. He did JACK SHIT in the movie, for real. Jirou surprised me, her quirk is really good at scouting.
    • Melissa is a fine character.
    • As for the plot... its...:dank Its as simple as it gets. The Magneto villain's motivation is shallow, he's just there to be villain and thats it. I'm fine with how they handled Dave's reason to be villain, kinda saw it coming even. But I feel like Dave needed more screen time because I couldn't give a rat arse about him. The whole government approach was realistic and nice though, I like that.

    Overall 7/10. I gave some minus marks because the lack of a solid plot/villain pulled it down but its a very entertaining movie. Hope BONES keep up the quality :catdance

    Finally saw the movie, ahem, legally. :catblush

    Was so good :bury

    I really loved this rendition of the cast, and Deku especially. I started to like his character much more after the film, which is something the Manga hasn't done for me in a while.

    I really liked Melissa, and Dave wasn't that bad either. The villains were pretty good too.

    That ending fight was :bury :bury :bury

    7/10 for the action

    story is "average"

    I just wanna warn you advance that the quality is poor. A few times the camera pans down too, but only for about 30 seconds when it does happen.
