I'm really looking forward to seeing the English dub release of Tiger and Bunny. A friend told me about the series over a year ago and I've been watching alot of the episodes.
I found out that Wally Wingert (aka Tallest Red in Invader zim) and Steve Blum are in it ^_^
Thoughts about the English dub release anyone?

I've seen the first few episodes in English now, and I have to say they did a pretty good job at casting. Kotetsu's voice definitely takes some getting used to, but they could have done a lot worse...

and honestly, I don't really think anyone will be able to compare to the emotion put in by the originals anyway... but at least they're trying

[********, I can never get over the casting choice for Kotetsu. His dub voice hits the ear so wrong compared to the original.

Have you watched the episodes? I'm starting to grow on him a little, but Barnaby, whose voice I originally loved, killed it for me when he tried to say Ouroboros!

I've noticed there are a lot of people who have yet to watch the anime, and are asking what it's about. It's easy to get confused with the amount of fanart/fanfic that's out there, so I wanted to set the record straight.

Tiger & Bunny is NOT a Yaoi. Its an anime about superheroes who are sponsored by real companies (like google, pepsi, etc.) who are competing in a reality TV show. It focuses mainly on two heroes:

-Kotetsu Kaburagi (AKA Wild Tiger), who has been a hero for many years, and cares more about saving people than pleasing his sponsors.

-Barnaby Brooks Jr. (who Kotetsu nicknames Bunny), who is a new hero who cares more about scoring points on the show.

The two share the same superpower, and are teamed up despite the fact that they don't get along. The show follows the progression of their (PROFESSIONAL) relationship, and their interactions with the other Heroes. Every character, including the supporting cast, is unique and lovable. They are purposely designed to represent the wide range of personalities and nationalities we would see in a major city. Their city of Sternbild is based off of Manhattan.

The story, while some people feel it takes a while to pick up, is IMO wonderful because it has so many different aspects to it: getting older and trying to do a younger person's job, the line between pleasing sponsors and saving human lives, the importance of family to those whose job it is to risk their lives, man vs. machine, etc. Although I am a fan of Kotestu x Barnaby, I really want people to watch the anime for what it is, and not dismiss it because of what fans are doing with the characters. Fanfic and fan art are amazing, but it shouldn't replace the real story of the anime.

I have, I'm "getting used" to it but I still don't like it.
Hah, you mean "ERRBERUS"? Yeah, I remember that, funny as all hell.

I didn't watch the English dub version yet (watched the whole series in Japanese though), but I saw a video of some event where episode one (or a portion of it) was presented, the scene where Barnaby first appears. Kotetsu's voice was strange to me compared to Hirata's voice, but I'm wondering if he "gets into it" throught the later episodes. Barnaby was all right. Eh, so he mispronounced Ouroboros. sweatdrop
