Winter 2019 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
2018 is almost out, guys and girls, and that means that another anime year is ready to take its place.
Kohei Horikoshi’s My Hero Academia and the movie Avengers: Infinity War have collaborated in a special visual and 7 videos!
Both hero series share the two following points: many characters with special abilities play an active part as heroes to protect people and society, and the heroes are not born as heroes, but they grow as one during the series. The project, entitled ‘Special Hero Collaboration’, has been made to convey the charm of My Hero Academia‘s third season, which started to air on 7 April, and the newest Avenger’s movie, Avengers: Infinity War, which will open in Japanese cinemas on 27 April.
The released visual is showing My Hero Academia with a similar design to Infinity War‘s IMAX poster. The anime’s character designer, Yoshihiko Umakoshi, was in charge of the design. The first video shows a young Deku and Bakugo watching the Avengers: Infinity War teaser video. In the other 6 videos, each anime character is introducing the charm of a single Avenger with similar traits to them. Deku introduces Captain America, who like him began as a regular human but was then given superpowers. Bakugo introduces Iron Man, who can also shoot from his hands and may seem explosive and rude but cares about his friends deep down. Ochaco Uraraka introduces Black Widow, who is also beautiful and skilled in martial arts. Tenya Iida introduces Doctor Strange, who is also very intelligent and wants to break barriers to become a true hero. Shoto Todoroki introduces Thor, who can also control one of the elements and has an extremely powerful father. Finally, All Might introduces the charm of Hulk, who can also transform into an extremely powerful being and has a kind heart with the desire to save those in need.
The collaboration campaign for both works will also open in bookstores nationwide from 24 April. For purchases of related products, postcards designed with the collaboration visual on the front and back will be given as a bonus while stocks last.
