Hey, it's Sunrise so I hope they know what they are doing. I will be supportive of any of their projects

Personally, i find the characters kinda plain looking and not really fitting, although some of the girls look perfect.

i mean, they should've tried to get some cosplayers to be the actors. iduno. Kotetsu's face looks too squareish.

Live-Action. Stage Play. Tiger & Bunny. I can't quite digest this.

I guess the only way they can go with this is this - goofy and nothing serious. I mean that's the only way it could not go wrong. Otherwise, 'live action stage play' and 'Tiger & Bunny' are two phrases that really shouldn't be in the same sentence because I can see many, many things going wrong with that.

I love the show, though. And it's wonderful that it's getting so much love even as the big shots in Sunrise didn't believe in the project, so I should really just shut up and feel happy for the people who worked so hard realising the project. But sigh, live action.

Y'know, if he really cared how much the fans are hatin this, he'd end it right there, not go promising the impossible.

Epic win or fail, this will be hilarious either way.

..so many mech stage plays as of late. First Code Geass and now T&B? I really wonder how they plan on doing these things.
