Ryohei Kimura Joins My Hero Academia The Movie as Young David Shield

The highly-anticipated all-new feature film will open in Japan on August 3

The official website for My Hero Academia The Movie: The Two Heroes, the upcoming all-new anime feature film based on Kohei Horikoshi's action shonen manga, announced today that 33-year-old voice actor Ryohei Kimura (Ryota Kise in Kuroko's Basketball) voices the film's original character David Shield in his youth. As reported, 57-year-old Katsuhisa Namase (Boyacky in the 2009 live-action film Yatterman) provides the character's present voice, probably in his 50s.


David is the father of the film's main heroine Melissa and the ex-partner of the young All Might when he was active in overseas. He is a internationally-renowned scientist who has developed support items for many heroes, including All Might's costume. Kimura is expected to voice David in the past scenes when he supported All Might's early hero activities.
