My hero academy is one of the most popular anime in the world and as always when an anime makes it big they have the movies to prove it. Three My Hero Academia movies have been released so far, but due to the amount of MHA content across so many different platforms, the order of the MHO movies can be a bit confusing. Whether it’s because their canon is disputed or because they’re not even mentioned in the show, the film’s timelines feel a bit out of place.

Here’s the recommended viewing order for each of the My Hero Academia films – Two Heroes, Heroes Rising, World Heroes’ Mission – alongside specific arcs in the show.

When to watch My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes follows Deku and All Might on their journey to I-Island to meet an old friend of All Might’s who he hasn’t seen in many years. It doesn’t take long for the rest of 1-A to show up, however, and then the usual parade of ill-intentioned villains isn’t too far away.

Two Heroes takes place right after Episode 58,’Special Episode: Save the World with Love!‘, the twentieth episode of Season 3. As a special episode, however, Save the World with Love! is chronological before the events of the entire Season 3 and ends with All Might inviting Deku to I-Island to help build Two Heroes.

Therefore, viewers are advised to watch it directly after the final exam in Season 2 to maintain continuity with the events of the film, which will also enhance the experience of a big event in Season 3. Watch Two Heroes after the last episode of season 2 and the 38th episode overall, ‘Encounter’.

Fans should also check out All Might Rising, an OVA that tells more of All Might’s backstory, before watching Two Heroes.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising follows Class 1-A as they do heroic work on a remote island during their summer break. Busy but hardly challenged, the relative peace is shattered when four powerful villains come ashore looking for a boy with a unique quirk.

The events of Heroes Rising are never mentioned or set up in/by the show, meaning it feels like a very stand alone affair. However, viewers are still recommended to watch it after the Meta Liberation War arc ending in Season 5, as some of the characters from that arc appear in the film with specific powers/alliances.

Watch My Hero Academia: Risen Heroes after the last episode of season 5The high, deep blue sky‘.

My Hero Academia: Mission of World Heroes is the latest MHA film and centers around Deku, Shoto and Bakugo as they join forces to try to put an end to Humarise, an organization that believes Quirks will one day lead to the downfall of mankind.

My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission is first teased after the Season 5 credits.Long time no see Selkie‘, with the episode’s events also shaking up the film’s villains. The girls from 1-A team up to stop a mysterious shipment being sent to the villains in “Long Time No See, Selkie,” which is widely considered MHA’s worst episode yet, as it includes filler and fan-service in one is .

However, the movie itself is set after the events of Season 5, just like Heroes Rising, and comes right before the upcoming Paranormal Liberation War arc, which will be a main focus of Season 6 both the season 5 finale and Heroes Rising before embarking on the World Heroes’ mission.
