As you can see above, the promo says My Hero Academia will see the stage play hit shelves on September 18. It will be available on Blu-ray and DVD within Japan. The bundles are set to house some bonus content to boot including a wide angle performance, backstage footage, curtain calls, and more.
“The wide angle view of the stage play is going to be awesome because you can see what all characters are doing in the background ahh that's going to be so awesome,” Aitaikimochi explained.
So far, there is no word on whether the play will be subbed in English or licensed in North America. Fans can always order the home video from Japan and get it shipped to them, but it won’t be cheap. The DVD will run fans about $70 USD before shipping while the Blu-ray will sell a bit more at $80.
