The official Twitter account of Tiger & Bunny has announced that the franchise will be receiving a new anime series. Yoshitomo Yonetani, director of the TV series and both films, will not be reprising his role. More information will be announced at a later date.

The franchise had previously received a TV series by studio Sunrise that aired for 25 episodes between April and September 2011. In addition, a side story film premiered in September 2012, followed by a sequel titled Tiger & Bunny 2: The Rising in February 2014.

A manga adaptation written and illustrated by Mizuki Sakakibara was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype Ace magazine from September 2011 to December 2014. The manga has released nine compiled volumes. Additionally, a one-shot, three-volume comic anthology, and a seven-volume alternative comic by Erika Yoshida and Hiroshi Ueda were also published. A video game, stage play and a live-action film were also released.

Viz Media has licensed both the anime and the manga for North American distribution and released the TV series and the side story throughout 2013, with the sequel movie in February 2015. The manga was released in English between April 2013 and November 2016.

Tiger & Bunny had previously topped NHK's Best 100 anime last year, and its main characters Kotetsu T. Kaburagi and Barnaby Brooks Jr. made the top 10 list of the broadcaster's favorite character ranking to commemorate 100 years of Japanese anime history.

Seems like its time to watch the first season. I recall watching an episode of this when I wasn't into anime at around 2012 and thought how ridiculous it was since an episode I watched had mind control and their suits had freaking sponsors. I might come to like it though.

Dang though, I just noticed a lot of j fans sure like anime produced by sunrise

I still think that the fact that this show always dominate the Japanese poll is some sort of a meme...

I hope the new project will be helmed by Keichi Satou again. Because that 2nd movie was not as enjoyable as the TV series.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.

Totally agree!

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

This is where I put it I guess.

Tiger & Bunny is huge in Japan according to one of my friends who visited Japan last year. Stores are full of merchandises of Love Live, T&B, Gundam, Geass and Gintama according to her. Considering nothing came up since the T&G 2014 movie (the movie itself is ranked within Top 20 of all time Box Office Gross in movies adapted from TV Anime (remake, sequel, prequel, spin-off etc.).) and was still that popular in even last year means a lot.

Merchandises aside, to put it into perspective in sales with other Sunrise Inc. hits that got sequels in the past and present:

Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED 87K
Code Geass Hangyaku no Lelouch 75K
Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 44K
Love Live! School Idol Project 39K
Tiger & Bunny 38K
Gintama 24K
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 21K

I have never seen it myself but the stats, ranking, popularity etc. suggest that Sunrice Inc. could probably make a lot out of it.


Sunrise Inc. was quick to take my advise I guess.

Well it always seems to be at the number one spot when Japan does those best anime rankings, and the MC topped that favorite character thing MAL posted a couple days ago. I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner, given its immense popularity.

I should probably start watching this.

-Me, and probably every single person who watched those shows.

The news forgot to mention that it's part of the new project titled Buddy Series, so there might be more than sequel to Tiger & Bunny (like spin-off w. different heroes?) or not related to Tiger & Bunny that we know at all.

Finally happened, huh. All these polls over the years, always featuring T&B S2 as one of the most requested sequels in the industry and they finally paid off.
Stone Ocean adaption when?

Woo this is great news! With the amount of popularity it has, hopefully the animation won't drop as badly as it did in the first season. (Not that it mattered, since the story was still fantastic!)

I feel like I should too. At least now we have the push to finish them. :)

Took them long enough, lmao. Considering how it's crazy popular in Japan, there's no way Sunrise wouldn't continue it. Hell, they're even continuing Code Geass.

At last.

I thought the series was pretty conclusive, but the movie continuation (The Rising) turned out really good, so I guess it's OK to get my hopes up for the next installment.

I'm the one who posted that, but I deleted it in 30 seconds.
Because I might spoiled some classified information.
Who knows this was indeed produced by them? (like FLCL)

I love T&B and if you would've asked me a few years ago what anime I desperately wanted a second season of I would've answered with this. Now I have minimal hopes but maybe I can be proven otherwise.

Still though my mind is blown, it was starting to become a joke how much Japan keeps mentioning this series and to see each year pass by without any announcement of a continuation.
