Once again Sony Pictures Home Entertainment UK, in partnership with FUNimation, are aiming for a near-simultaneous English-speaking release for My Hero Academia – Season 2 Part 1 as the just like last months release of Attack on Titan – Season 2 the UK and North American release happen on the same day.

So how exactly will My Hero Academia – Season 2 Part 1 be released and what will it contain? Well it will be released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD Combo Pack with each edition contain twelve episodes of the series as well as the ‘recap’ episode of Season 1 known as Episode 13.5 in both English and Japanese (with English subtitles) audio tracks. The Blu-Ray editions will also contain bonus features such as 11 eleven ‘inside the episodes’ featurettes, an anime epxo 2017 interview and textless opening and closing songs.

The Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD Combo Pack meanwhile will contain all of the above but will also come packaged in a chipboard artbox, with space for Season 2 Part 2, and a selection of physical items including:

  • 10 trading cards,
  • 40 page artbook,
  • 2 U.A. High team pennants,
  • UA Sports Festival tie headband
  • Acrylic key chain

All of which mimics the content contained within the North American Limited Edition release of My Hero Academia – Season 2 Part 1. Just like with Attack on Titan – Season 2 Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD Combo Pack set this will also be sold exclusively through Zavvi with pre-orders expected to appear shortly.

In short; My Hero Academia – Season 2 Part 1 will be available on DVD, Blu-Ray and Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD Combo Pack from the 2nd April 2018 within the UK.
