My Hero Academia Season 1 UK Blu-ray & DVD Re-Release Listed on Amazon

Update 10th May 4:15pm: Manga Entertainment has officially announced plans to bring Season 1 of My Hero Academia to the UK on 29th May 2019. Revealed via Site Announcement.


Last month, we reported that the British Board of Film Classification had posted a rating slot for the first season of My Hero Academia. What was interesting about this is that it was filed under a different distributor other than Universal Pictures.

Today, a new BBFC post was released noting down a rating for the first seven episodes. Then soon after, online retailer Amazon UK had begun listing Blu-ray & DVD sets for the first season. This time the distributor is now under Manga Entertainment, who are currently releasing My Hero Academia the Movie: Two Heroes and My Hero Academia Season 3.

The listing currently sets the release date for 27th May 2019 on both Blu-ray and DVD. Universal Pictures previously released the series in May 2017 as a limited edition Blu-ray & DVD combo pack, which had eventually sold out and is no longer in print. Manga Entertainment’s release will be a standard edition on both formats.

The on-disc content will be identical to the previous UK release, with both English & Japanese audio with English subtitles as well as a ton of on-disc features.

Plot synopsis via Manga Entertainment:

From studio BONES, the creators of Fullmetal Alchemist and Soul Eater, comes My Hero Academia, a superhero origin story that soars to the top of the class. Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where 80% of the population has some kind of superpowered quirk, Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

My Hero Academia Season 1 is available to stream over on Crunchyroll subbed and also on Funimation in both dubbed and subbed form. My Hero Academia Season 2 was distributed by Sony Pictures for the UK & Ireland during 2018.
