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...

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

I was finally able to watch the first Tiger & Bunny movie yesterday, and I'd like to share my opinions.

Story: The first movie is 2 parts retelling, 1 part new story. The first two episodes of the series are used, with new sequences added in. Some additions are purely cosmetic (scenes with Kotetsu struggling to put on his CrapSuit in his car) and others serve to flesh out characters (we finally learn what Rock Bison's NEXT power is!).

The new scenario was on-par with an average episode. The villain had an interesting power, and the heroes dealt with him in classic T&B style: everyone read more
