THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hilarious episode. First of all, the pen. Then the birthday/robbery combo brought a lot of good material out of the other heroes, especially Sky High. The whole "Good Luck Mode" affair was hilarious beyond words.

This has been my favorite episode to date.
It's good to see Barnaby & Kotetsu starting to have the inklings of a real teamwork/friendship dynamic.

The "Good Luck Mode" was also quite awesome - it just makes you look cooler - ha, classic. Good fun.

As for the next episode - looks promising, though I'm starting to wonder - is there ever going to be a 'final boss' setup or will the show continue to follow the 'baddie of the week' formula? It hasn't gotten stale yet but I worry.

I absolutely loved this episode, it was great seeing all the heroes interacting with each other. It kind of surprised me with what they did with Saito's voice but that was hilarious.

It looks like so far they've been hinting at an organization called Ourobouros, plus if you take a close look at some of the newspapers from the previous episodes they mention things like murders going on. So there is something but they haven't revealed it yet.

Loved how the transformation just made it harder to move and didn't help at all. Looks like poor old Bison got arrested after the credits because of that bunny cutout.

Haha, the pen getting run over was hilarious.

If you were using it on regular people, their plan for surprising Bunny would be the best surprise party ever. Thinking you're right about to be killed but then, happy birthday! xD

Tiger and Bunny actually had some teamwork this episode too, it was nice.

Kotetsu's exaggerated haplessness is so bad for my heart. That scene with the pen was designed to make you think 'nothing could possibly go wrong this time!' Having to wait until the end of every episode for him to have a chance at being cool is painful, dammit. ;_; At least Blue Rose is cute and cool enough to distract me when she's on screen. And the part after the credits was just hilarious.

This show is probably too straightforward for its own good, but it's only cheesy in hilarious ways, like Good Luck mode. Next episode might actually get serious, so maybe there's change in the wind. . .?

some pretty hilarious moments with the car and Sky High being a bro. lol @ them losing the bunny and him getting arrested at the end. Bunny is still a big jerk and Tiger can't do much right.

Sky High is just brilliant. And poor Bison. I was wondering where he'd disappeared to.

Yet another great episode. This show keeps getting better and better.

loved this episode! Loved seeing the interaction between the various heroes and I know Bunny was actually happy with all the birthday wishes ;D when two very different people get put together, hilarity ensues :D I just love the city and there's an atmosphere and feel of this anime which is very pleasing. Can't wait for next week :D

Bunny is really so annoying and they really need to shed some light behind his annoying attitude. Tiger character is getting boring too and the show hasn't really gone anywhere at all.

I thought it's like if you team up Batman and Spiderman.

I do have a feeling that this is going to be a 2-cour anime with the pacing they are going. Remember that they still yet to explore the backstory of half of the heroes at the moment

You'd be right, almost certainly going to be 26 episodes based on DVD/BD volumes, maybe 25+1 but definitely 2 cours.

Great episode, the show is definitely looking good but as others have mentioned, it needs an overarching plot if they want to keep us focused till the end. They'll probably get to that very soon, so I'm not too worried yet.

I know the show is called Tiger & Bunny but I want more Blue Rose :| Hopefully she'll be their sidekick or something in the later stages.

I just love Kotetsu, but the poor guy can't seem to get any respect.

Loved the soft spoken scientist yelling over the loud speaker!

Looks like things are about to get serious...

I pretty much agree with this. The plots get laughs out of me, but I feel like there's much more that could be done with such a neat setup. I'd really like to see the series take a serious direction and either become more plot driven or have the personalities be more dynamic. These little hints at Barnaby's secret past aren't doing it for me.

Oh god, I seriously LOVE this anime. This episode was HILARIOUS, with Kotetsu getting the pen destroyed, asking Barnaby what he wants, his set up for his birthday ... oh my god XD Then real thieves come along ... plus he actually got the stupid diamond! LOL :3 Too bad he doesn't get any respect D;
Love that they are finally getting together! Come on Barnaby just admit you guys would make an awesome team! :P
Love the other team members too. Hope we see more of them (I can barely recognize anyone w/o their suits lol) :D Also wanna see Barnaby's past ... hmm ... ;O
New suits = awesome! TIGER AND BUNNY! GOOD LUCK MODE or something?! Sooo awesome XD Plus that bunny for his present was really cute too LOL XD

This was 3 different kind of epic in little less than 25 mins. The rehearsal for his birthday party i actually had to pause for a couple of second as I was laughing a little to much.
I really enjoy the way this anime is flowing, some seriousness might be a good idea, but is not like it needs it.
huh?

This episode was great and Kotetsu just trying to be a bro and trying to help out.

I love how most of the super heroes aren't just partners but also buddies to help and be friends.

I would have thought that the building's owners would be happy to even have a building rather than being upset that it was slightly damaged, especially with all the free publicity they got out of that :/

why wasn't the kungfu kid involved in the party? were they going to a bar afterward or something? also, why no Origami Samurai?

Art was a bit off lol. To be expected with a 2-cour series, it's okay.

Probably my favourite episode. This show really gets me to like its characters more and more, they're just so lovable. I also giggled a few times, great episode.

Hmm, I've been loving every episode up until now, but I don't know if they'll be able to keep the excellent enjoyment factor up for 25 or 26 episodes...

Anyway, I loved it, again. Looking forward to the next episode! 5/5

That's because so far it is episodic. No central focus at all, expect the two main characters. Still enjoying it and I can't wait until the show starts to actually follow one central plot.

All I can say for this ep is "GOOD LUCK MODE 3 2 1 TIGER AND BUNNY OVER AND OUT!" Lmfao why would he program the suit to say that at the exact moment they defeat an enemy? xD That Saito is a funny ass dude xD

Bunny "Don't misnderstand it was just a-"
Saito "IT WAS YOUR TEAMWORK!"

Lol no tsundere for you Bunny.

I'm really enjoying this. The characters work so well together I already love them. Good Luck mode was hilarious, and the stuffed bunny in the rehearsal was amazing. I don't usually like this kind of show, but this is just so well done so far.
