We’ve gotten original character reveals for the heroes and the villains of the story, so it’s only right for My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission to unveil a new sidekick to complete the set!
Perched upon the shoulder of Rody Soul, another original character designed by creator Kohei Horikoshi will be the positively pink Pino, voiced (or rather squawked) by industry veteran Megumi Hayashibara (Neon Genesis Evangelion).
Hayashibara’s comment on the official My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission website says, “It’s been a while since I’ve been cast for my face,” and, “I started watching the series from Season 1…. I’ve already found my favorite character, but they’re all cute.”
My Hero Academia‘s upcoming third feature film previously cast Kazuya Nakai, best known for his role as Zoro in One Piece, as the main villain Flect Turn, the leader of an organization called “HUMANIZE” that seeks to eradicate those with Quirks.
My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission is scheduled to release in Japanese theaters on August 6.
