What will Tiger & Bunny 2 be about?
In the 25th episode of the previous season, a kid was shown buying collectible cards of Barnaby and Tiger and when he dropped the dollar bill in a puddle, the justice symbol faded away to reveal the Ouroboros symbol which suggested that Sternbuild government was actually the true Ouroboros. We’re hoping to see more of Ouroboros in this season. In the previous season, Tiger’s powers were said to become powerful but not long-lasting, and with his current condition, how he will solve the new problems will be very exciting to watch. We might get to see more excitement in Tiger & Bunny 2.
Tiger & Bunny Recap
This series was set in a futuristic city called Sternbild and 45 years ago, some individuals began to manifest superpowers called NEXT and many of them chose to become superheroes. They are sponsored by big real-life companies and their logos are visible on superheroes’ uniforms to promote their companies. Their heroic activities are shown on television and they get points for each heroic accomplishment. The focus of this series is on the hero Kotetsu T. Kaburagi who is also known as Wild Tiger and is one of the least famous heroes in the city’s rankings.
After some deals with the sponsor company, he receives a partner named Barnaby Brooks Jr. but the problem arises when they start working together as their method and visualizations are constantly opposite. The first season was all about these two heroes working together, fighting evil powers while trying to adjust to the other’s methods. Barnaby Brooks Jr. didn’t like Kotetsu in the beginning as he felt that his methods are old and outdated and he also called him “old man” but as the episodes progressed, they started understanding each other and calling each other with their names. The ouroboros is still a mystery that will be hopefully solved in the upcoming season.
