I still stand by my assertion that TIGER & BUNNY has serious potential to be a real crossover hit once it gets properly dubbed. When Anime Expo runs in a month or so, I have this gut feeling that I’ll be seeing plenty of Hero TV cosplayers roaming around the aisles. Their numbers might even double at AX 2013, if the dub in question hits at the right moment. Hell, they might even go up another integer depending on the release of these two flicks.
See, as you might be aware, no less than two TIGER & BUNNY movies are in the works. That’s been known for a while, but now ANN has a few more details about the particulars.
The first flick will be basically another one of those glorified clip shows - - although the makers are now insisting that it won’t be comprised entirely of clips. There will be some “untold, behind-the-scenes” stories. In the best case, that means we’ll get some new back-story scenes. In the worst case, I suppose that language could be construed to mean we’ll be seeing EPK interviews with the cast and crew intrusively interspersed throughout the movie.
The first flick’s coming out in September, while the second flick’s coming out sometime next year. It’s been confirmed that it’ll be an all new story and, if I were to hazard a wild guess, I’d imagine it might have to do with the Hero TV gang finally taking the vigilante Lunatic down. That sounds about right, no?
