The second Tiger & Bunny movie, "The Rising", is definitely for the fans. Being a big Tiger & Bunny fan myself, I was very excited to see this movie. While it is not a perfect movie, it did a good job of being true to its source.

Story: The movie's plot is very straightforward: we rejoin the heroes some time after the end of the TV series. Kotetsu and Barnaby are part of the Second League, but that quickly changes when a new owner buys Apollon Media. What follows is a predictable, but still entertaining story.

While the TV series can be seen as "Barnaby's story", the read more

You know, I should really be more wary of how much a theatrical experience can add to a movie, especially in regards to products that get by on their intensity. Because when a big-ass screen with big-ass speakers pleasing your ears with big-ass surround sound is replaced by your outdated Cathode Ray Tube, chances are the intensity will be gone and you’ll no longer have anything to distract you from the fact that Peter Jackson might have used a wee bit too much obvious CGI in the final climax. That was definitely the case with the second Tiger and Bunny film, a movie I pegged read more

Tiger & Bunny Movie 2: The Rising... I think it would be more accurate to call it "The Falling"; not because of the film's quality compared to the anime series, but the themes in the movie are more consistent with falling than rising...

Story: 6/10

Like any film, the story had its strong and weak points. The plot mainly went into further detail about Kotetsu's insecurities as basically a back-up hero, but the detail was rather lacking when it shifted focus onto the other heroes and how they fit into the story. It was almost as if they had to be given excuses for appearing.

Yet again a significant improvement on the series because it's more focused. But, again, polishing a turd.

The best part of the show was the heroes being friends and there's a bunch of that strewn throughout, so that's nice. Fire Emblem's piece exploring the childhood trauma of growing up queer in a hostile world was fantastic and the whole reason I bumped this up to a 4. Such a great payoff at the end. Obviously, his declaration that being gay (and trans-spectrum) is powerful was the climactic moment. But I also adored his little laugh over how he'd become self-conscious of himself at all after he read more
