The My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission movie will debut an original character named Rody Soul when it releases in theaters on August 6 in Japan.
The character is designed by series creator Kohei Horikoshi. It’s said that Rody gave up on his own dreams in order to make a living and has a secret distrust of heroes. However, he’s happy to help Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki stop a new organization called “HUMANIZE” that is looking to destroy all Quirk holders. Voicing Rody Soul is voice actor Ryo Yoshizawa (Bleach), who can be seen posing with Deku above.

World Heroes’ Mission is the third film spawned from the popular anime series. The first movie, titled My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, released back in 2018, grossing $5.7 million at the US box office. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising released in Japan in 2019 and North America in 2020. It earned approximately $2.5 million on opening day.
My Hero Academia is created by Kohei Horikoshi and began being serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2014. The first season of the anime launched in 2016 and has since been adapted in other media such as video games and films. Both the anime and manga are still ongoing.
