First off, I was pleasantly surprised to see how diverse this series's cast was. It actually felt like it was set in the USA or something. I also liked how normal everyone was. Some series have the people act stereotypical as crap, so that was appreciated and made things even better.

Now, onto the meat of this topic: Saito and Ben. I love these two! They're minor characters, but they leave an impression and they did important things. So, are there any other fans? Just say anything related to them. I'm not good at making up topics.

At first, I thought Saito was weird. He had promise, though, because he was a scientist, and in general, I love scientist characters. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! heart Then, Saito started talking and he was so, so, so hilarious! rofl Every time he opened his mouth, I laughed, sometimes to the point of tears! crying Those two aspects of him and how he is so proud of his work to the point where he's after Kotetsu to make sure everything works or to torture him...to prove that everything works...make him such an endearing character.

I was glad the crack theory about Saito
being the dark Tiger was wrong. Psh! I think Saito would be loud if no one knew his identity, anyway, so saying it's him, because he's quiet was kind of sillers.


I wasn't expecting Ben to be a recurring character. I just thought he'd appear once and never again. He didn't leave all that big an impression in his first appearance, anyway.

Then, I read some crack theories about Ben being
evil - to be more detailed, they said Apollon Media took Kotetsu's powers and that Ben was in on it - and I was, like, "I sure hope not." After that, he kept re-appearing and each time, a little more about him would be revealed.

When he rescued Kotetsu and said he never believed the bad news, I went, "******** yeah! ILU Ben!" inside. Outside, I just made strange noises and I tried to say, "I love you, Ben." sweatdrop redface


I'm surprised there is any merchandise of Saito.

No problem.

Here's the rest of those figures up through the end of the year (one row is released every month starting in Aug from the bottom of the case).

There's also a lottery prize keychain of Saito that I believe is just beginning to be awarded. You have to be in Japan to participate in the lottery but the keychains show up sometimes in personal sales posts and online auctions.

Loved when Saitou went S on Kotetsu when he showed him the differences between the crapsuit and the mecha one. Dat trollish smile. I would like to know about the reason behing his low voice.

And Ben is surely a reliable man. He is not a genius like Saitou, but thanks to him, we were able to
confirm that Kotetsu was actually losing his powers (because at first it looked like he was having a power up? And there were theories about it actually being some kind of power morphing?) and know a bit of Mr. Legend's past (although we were later given an episode with more detailed info, ouch)

Both are truly amazing characters.@w@ I mean for them just playing minor roles they played a big part for the whole series.
I love Ben!

When Maverick framed Kotetsu and he was running away from the brainwashed superheroes and Ben runs into him and I seriously thought he was against Kotetsu too I was like "NOOOOO NOT HIM TOOOO" but he was good and it was such a relief!!!!


Saito is weird lol...

Saito is interesting~ I don't like him, not in an affectionate way,
but I enjoy him being around because the way he acts, and how other
characters react, makes me laugh. o w o


I just plain like Ben, though. >w<

I figured he'd be overlooked and remember Kotetsu,
but that moment was still really heartwarming. <333

Working on a Saito cosplay for the con circuit next year!!! whee

These were definitely two major characters you don't even realize are so interesting and important until the last episode. Great writing in T&B~!

That was on of the moments that made me laugh. Those expressions were priceless. I always thought his voice was low, because he was shy? Since when he can't be seen, he sounds loud, it made sense to me.

I remember those.
I felt so bad for Kotetsu and Yuri after the flashback that showed what Mr. Legend did after he started losing his powers, since Kotetsu idolized him -- he even drank a Mr. Legend beverage at the bar -- and Yuri was his doggone son. :C

Me too! It's rare I want merchandise of all the main characters from a series, but T&B is one of those where I find myself having trouble choosing a fave. I just love them all! emotion_bigheart

Oh, it's weird. Can't remember exactly, but I think when he had that speaker on his head for the first time he looked like he was speaking normal but it sounded like he was shouting? and then he had to readjust the speaker for a lower volume? I also think part of it is shyness, but it also seems like he has a natural low tone. Not sure, must rewatch the series again.

About Ben, if we get a second season, he will surely appear more often since it seems he was hired to work with Saitou in the end. Can you feel the scent of bromance? emotion_awesome *shot*

Maaan, there are so many questions about this series. And it doesn't help when the mangas give a LOT more of details about the characters.
And I feel like Lunatic has some relation to Ouroboros, may it be direct or indirect. That man is like one of the keys to solve all the misteries of the story *suspicious*
