Netflix’s very own capitalist Power Ranger series, Tiger & Bunny, has announced its sequel after eight long years.
Although Kotetsu and Barnaby had decided to retire from their hero professions by the end of season 1, they will come back to kick some more villainous buttocks in season 2. Let’s see who scores the biggest sponsors in the upcoming sequel.
Season 2 of Tiger & Bunny will have a total of 25 episodes, and Netflix will stream it in two installments. The first 13 episodes will premiere on April 8, all at once.
Tiger & Bunny 2 will have a plot that will be set after the events of Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising-.
Check out the new teaser, which introduces some of the new heroes who will debut in season 2:
New heroes are in, and the Kotetsu-Barnaby team has become outdated now. The fight for sponsors will get more demanding as the two will struggle to stay afloat.
Keeping all those problems aside, it feels good to see this classic couple again despite their bickerings. The video also previews the opening theme song of the anime, “kaleido proud fiesta.”
Some of the new heroes will play a crucial part in season 2, and their cast members have also been revealed:
|He Is Thomas||Nobunaga Shimazaki||Shun Kaidō (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.)|
|Mr. Black||Shōya Chiba||Yū (Fire Force)|
|Magical Cat||Tomori Kusunoki||Neiru Aonuma (wonder Egg Priority)|
Season 2 of the anime is also set to receive a manga adaptation named Tiger & Bunny 2 The Comic. Erika Yoshida and Hiroshi Ueda will be in charge of the manga.

This ‘heroes for hire’ concept was what attracted otakus to Tiger & Bunny, and season 2 will amp up the factor even more as the heroes have to maintain their sponsors on top of saving people.
Let’s see if Kotetsu and Barnaby can make a comeback despite their long break.
