Dear Scamp,

I heard a new Tiger and Bunny movie is coming out and that you got the chance to see it. I like Tiger and Bunny, but not enough to watch a rushed retelling of the TV series. Is there any reason for me to watch this new movie?

Yours sincerely,

Hi there! Thanks for writing in. You’re right, I did get a chance to see the new Tiger and Bunny movie and I too sorta liked the Tiger and Bunny TV series but not enough to eagerly devour the exact same material all over again. This read more

"We love it when big anime companies repackage the same damn thing in a more consumable product instead of getting more of we loved!" -said no anime fan ever, but in all honestly I'm willing to give this one some incredible leeway... Yes I am a fervent fanboy of this particular series, but at least this one manages to give it's fans so much more than most of the same breed has done in the past.

Pfff. Another recap from Sunrise. They sure want their money well... NO, wait. This is all new and.. and different? And better? What the shit!?

Tiger & Bunny The Beginning is like Tiger & Bunny tv series in the beginning, except this movie isn't lost. The problem with the start of the tv series was that Sunrise had not decided what to do with the series when they started with it. It was a mess, ugly and basically one rough diamond. What Tiget & Bunny The Beginning movie does, is polish that diamond, and it polishes it good.

The story starts off the same, the idea is read more

Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning is one part recap and two parts new material. The film reuses scenes from the first few episodes and adds new content to expand the story and characters.

Story: 8 - the main event explored in the film is the starting point of the show: the beginning of Bunny's career and Tiger being forced to become his partner. When I first watched the show this did feel a bit rushed, so Sunrise choosing to address this feels like a good move. The scenes that are reused are mainly the action and comedy ones, and almost all the new scenes focus read more

Anime: Majin Bone
-Both have heroes/villains fighting with CGI power suits
-Both have a reckless/straightforward MC paired with a serious/calculating Teamate.

A difference is the MC is T&B has had his power for a long time while Majin Bone MC just gained them.
