Next ep seems badass. Tiger carrying a gattling gun. WANT WANT WANT!!


I had to watch the preview three times before I noticed that. Too amazing by the previous scenes. But WOW Kotetsu with a gun! That's going to be amazing. This show knows how to please fans.

I knew it! Only the big guy would know that Tiger had a wife and kid, they always seemed like long time friends. Lol at Karina's reaction... "Kotetsu... wife? daughter???" She was just flabbergasted... I wonder why?
LOL at Dragon Kid and Kotetsu's Mommy/Daddy roles and how they stayed at Bunny's place. Kotetsu: "I didn't want anything at my house breaking."
Then getting drunk on the floor... sheesh Sunrise is all about the yaoi implications.
Couldn't the kidnappers wear less conspicuous clothes?


Also, am I the only totally heterosexual man here who thinks that Tiger is the HOTTEST guy ever? Just look at his posture, facial expression, and listen to his phrasing and voice.
He beats Minato (from Naruto) in my opinion and that's a tough act to follow.


lol i have to agree with the majority of what ur saying xD (the only part is Minato is still hotter to me. Tho Tiger is very attractive too. He doesn't get enough love )

lol @ yaoi implications

and i was wondering too. Why was Katrina so surprised? For a second i got the idea that she liked him. But thats weird right? She's like what 16?

Minato is one sexy man... goodness, now I'm in conflict again, thanks.

I think Karina is probably 17-19, I doubt she's sixteen, though with Dragon Kid being a hero too, maybe she is younger? At first I doubted that she liked him, but the more I think about it, the more it seems likely. It might get brushed off as a crush in the end and they "just be friends" but we'll see. Have to have some sexual tension in this show (besides the yaoi). Crush or not, Karina has some good taste in men. *nods in approval*, the main question is what will her parents and Kotetsu think about it.

Gosh... I'm sounding like a shipper, I am trying so hard not to fall down that slippery slope, so please take all this as theories concerning plot development... yeah we'll say that. I don't actually care either way, as long as they address it and use the story to its full potential.

T&G's really getting better and better, the characters are developping and their relations deepening, plus the plot is actually moving forward while remaining very entertaining. Great stuff.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Awwwwh, no aw(e)some engrish this time? Don't give up too easily, Tiger!

It's unbelievable how ridiculously much I love this show. The episodes keep getting better and better... The series is pretty episodic but I like how the characters interact and they/their relationships develop nicely.

I seriously expected this episode would be a bit boring featuring Dragon Kid and all, but no way, she was much more sympathetic and likable than I thought.

Tiger is so cool.

Same here, I totally did not expect that I would LOVE this series so much. But all the characters just seem so real, like honest to goodness people. Just perfection in that department and the new villain looks interesting, good to know it's not just going to be Lunatic.

Translated the episode summary for 10 the best I could (from the official website).

Tiger receives a paid vacation from the company, additionally he goes toward his mother’s home. It’s been a while since dad met with Kaede, to improve the meeting Kotetsu tries to purchase a popular stuffed animal called Mud (mad?) Bear. Barnaby recalls memories based on new clues can proceed in finding his parents’ murderer. Barnaby goes to the prison records to confirm the true criminal. At the same time a large explosion takes place on the bridge as Tiger heads home (not yet reaching Kaede).

Not much new information, except the Barnaby part on him looking into records. Looking forward to the next episode, seems fantastic!

Oh, and Kaede means Maple Tree, how cute!

Oh he was just as hot before, he just decided to flaunt it this time... like in this official poster.


Bunny stands like a chick... kind of irritating actually, he can't do the bishie thing really well at all.

Lmfao I thought this show was STUPID at first then I started watching it when I was bored on iphone now im completely hooked xD WASN'T THE 10TH EPISODE SUPPOSED TO BE OUT SUNDAY!?!?

I kinda hate how Tiger is acts like a dad to blue rose, dragon kid, Origami, bunny, AND OBAMA'S baby BUT NOT TO HIS OWN DAUGHTER (unless it happens off screen) Seriously I wanna see some father daughter bonding and I wanna know more about his marriage.

Tiger is a cool guy because its kinda of rare to have non virgin protagonist let alone a protagonist with a kid. But, thats what adds to Tigers awesomeness he is a cool comedic guy + a father + a hero he is plain awesome. THO HE WOULD LOOK 100% COOLER/SEXIER WITHOUT THE GOATEE. no homo.

It was funny when Phionex tried to kiss the baby and it made a "ooohhh~" sound with a womans voice and the baby went crazy xD.

I didn't have any high hopes for this show (save a sinking feeling that it would either be blazée or AMAZING). I think Tiger does need to spend more time with his daughter, maybe arrange to have her move closer. Lol, Obama's baby, I thought that too.
I think the goatee is exactly what makes him sexy... and yes, like me you can be straight and notice that Kotetsu is one hot tiger.

@AstuteOtaku I agree im so glad that this show gets 25 eps instead of 12 Idk bout the goatee maybe because im a fan of younger protagonist age 16-19 but, older protagonist can be kick ass also like Mugen, Spike, Vash, etc . Hey do you know Tigers age? I think bunny is at least 25.

Yep, Bunny is 24-25, and with Kaede being 9 years old that make Kotetsu anywhere from 29-35... I doubt older, but maybe.

@CaptainChrno I didn't even see th eguys face very well can i get a screenshot or something of what you guys are looking at to say that? Idk maybe I just need to watch again because all I saw was a black guy then it turns into a fire guy.

And when I say "black guy" I don't mean "Typical bad guy" like racist Kotetsu http://sekijitsu.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Tiger_Episode3_Pic13.png

OMG I just watched 9 episodes in a row this show is an eyegasm what a superb animation and wondeful art with perfect ost and awesome plot <3..

This episode was cute until the last scene O_o I was freaking out because I thought that Bunny would think Tiger is the culprit -__-..

And lol at Karina's reaction I think she likes Tiger xDD..

I know?!? Why isn't it more popular. I mean I love the other spring series but this is honestly such high quality. At least it is all the rage in Japan (it's dvd sales beat out all the Spring 2011 shows except one). NEXT episode looks good.

Awesome episode. Stuff might actually get real with Bunny's search, especially after the chat and freakout.

Dragon kid is cute, and i loved it when everyone was surprised he had a kid. Of which, i sort of wish she would show up more like the other characters i like.

I said "ouch" after the last scene where his daughter told him the hairpin was being wared by the grandma. Poor guy can't feel the love.

And lol Tiger, "i don't want it breaking any of my things". Hahaha saying it just like that.
He certainly made Bunny be more open now. They even got drunk together.

Dragon Kid has a cool power. I wanted to see her do more fighting. But Bruce Lee yellow jump suit ftw.

Blue Rose reaction when she finds out that Tiger had a daughter was hilarious (maybe small crush?)

I am really, really starting to think so. I certainly can't blame her, and probably half of the teen girls who watch this show would too if Kotetsu was real.


Most teen girls are stupid and swallow about the same as teen boys so i hardly think they will prefer a man like Tiger. They will mostly go with the next bishounen, probably with someone like Bunny.

Btw am i the only one that remembers Sasuke when i see Bunny? No am not talking about their outside looks. Bunny seems to be heading in better ways though.

That is far too true. =_=

Bunny is kinda like Sasuke, I doubt he will go the same way, he would have to join Ouroborus. That would be kind of interesting though, just thinking of the implications lol.

Ok I actually gave this some thought so please people don't rage on what I'm about to say (I'm a huge Bebop fan myself).
Bunny remind me a lot of Spike. He has a very lay back attitude, but in fact he always worrying about everyone. He is reckless when it comes to get a job done and Tiger is somewhat similar to Jet as well.

Again, this is just my impression >.>
huh?

I didn't like this episode. It felt like they were trying to force Dragon Kid to be girly (or a moe moe loli more like) when that wasn't who she was and I'm sick of using babies as plot devices to make insufficiently feminine girl characters "realise their true nature". And because she didn't want to wear the hairclip she didn't care for her parents properly? WTF? She didn't even get to kick ass apart from that brief bit in the beginning, the freaking baby did more of that than she did. Upstaged by a baby, ffs. I do like Kotetsu as a dad though.


I know I'm late but those were my instant thoughts only five minutes into the episode. I hate the standards shown here. Male heroes are never criticised for being flamboyant or a bit feminine, just look at Fire Emblem. But as soon as any female character doesn't show any feminine traits then there's something wrong and she needs to be changed. It's like saying the only way a female hero should be able to get any attention is to act "cute and girly" otherwise they're not interestign enough. It really pisses me off. I love the show but finding vaguely sexist messages in this, and other anime, really spoils my enjoyment a lot of the time.

Wow, did you guys really have to get them drunk together. Oh well, that wasn't the worst play on yaoi expectations I've seen. Not as bad as that ep of Bleach where Hitsugaya is saved by his sword.


It takes a kid to teach Dragon Kid to appreciate her parents. Something that makes sense to me. And as usual, despite being somewhat uneffective in combat, Tiger still manages to be the heart and soul of another episode. What really surprises me is seeing Bunny freak out. Looks like whatever goofiness Tiger was up to, he managed to finally jog pink-suited buddy's memory.

I snorted and giggled at this episode so many times. Pretty glad no one is awake right now.
All the heroes trying to make the baby stop crying was just too much.
And poor Karina got so shocked when she knew the man she had a crush on was a father.
Good thing that Paolin finally got some screentime, I've been waiting since the first episode! She was just adorable~
And poor Kotetsu can't have a break with his daughter. Doting fathers are so cute.

lmao @ Blue Rose's reaction to the news about Tiger's kid and (deceased) wife. XD Although I 100% disapprove of anything happening between them -- she's way too young for him -- it was still funny.

Love how tsundere Bunny was this ep with Tiger. Moar of that pls! >:3

LOL WTF who is that naked guy at the end? Where is he? WHY NAKED!?

I cracked a laugh how the baby was passed between the heroes, especially baby\s reaction towards Flame's mama-kiss. Blue Rose reaction was superb.

Is Ms. Producer falling for Bunny???

Mary: Endou, Aya

Lily: Nakahara, Mai

Mari: Oohara Sayaka



Agnes and Barnaby having screen time alone!!!



and lol Kotetsu lying how it doesn't bother him when Mary is acting sexy around him XD



Dragon Kid looks soo cute!!!

kinda wish we had more back story to her other than being China's pride.



Barnaby finally remembers his parent's killers.

he kinda looks like Kotetsu, soo a relative of Kotetsu?!?!



next episode is gonna be soo good!!!!

Oh god...this episode has lots of cuteness and feels.

I can infer that Barnaby is around 24 or more; since his parents were killed when he was 4, and he says that he had been gathering information desperately for 20 years. Hn just wanted to point that out~

I feel bad for Barnaby for having an image like that in his head, must be awful poor thing....

Looking forward to the next episode!

Nice! An episode focused around Dragon Kid!

Dragon Kid's so cute. :3

Those slutty kidnappers though...

Barnaby is slowly growing on me...

That ending was quite mysterious. I wonder who and where that guy was.

The mystery elements are certainly becoming more and more prominent!

Great episode!

8/10 I can't wait to find out the backstory behind all the other heroes!
