So far we've only seen it pop up once. I like that idea of it reappearing to beat the crap out of that robot. Makes me wonder what kind of plan those 2 have after the android is beat? Blow up the collars and run away like cowards?

This episode was not really good. The fight bewteen Tiger and Barnaby was bad and in the end, Bunny retrieved his memory too easly. We should have had a good fight between these two which should have lasted until the end of the episode.

As awlays, I'm really angry at Sunrise to privilege Sacred Seven over Tiger and Bunny when it comes to animation. It's just a nonsense to me. What's the problem with this studio ?

The second part was better but once again whe should have had a fight bewteen the heroes (otther than Tiger and Bunny) and Cis's big brother.

And all these reused scenes...urhg...

Probably one of the weakest episode.

Contrary to what you say, a 24 minute fight does NOTHING to advance the plot. It is superficial to say that that would be a good replacement for the episode. How would your suggestion help Barnaby regain his memories? I would think that the solution provided by Sunrise was more than appropriate, given the fact that Barnaby hates being called Bunny.

I don't see anything wrong with this episode's animation anyway. So what if there wasn't a LONG fight? There was plenty more to enjoy from the story's development, and the motif the episode conveys (that machines can never be humans, albeit having superior physical capabilities).

Wow Barnaby regained his memories with just the use of his nickname, why didn't Kotetsu use it before. Would have liked to see the other heroes vs the android, oh well. At least we know he's an improved version of the one they fought before. Wonder what the heroes in the cages will do. Maverick better not do anything to Kaede.

Yeah, I'm also a bit disappointed in how easy it is for Barnaby to regain its memory. Not because of the method (I saw that coming, being in the title and all), but they make it seems taht simply saying that word is enough to erase all the memory tampering. If they make it so that's the final piece in the puzzle after Kotetsu's repeated attempts to jog his memory back then it's fine, but this way it makes Kotetsu's struggle very pointless, he could just say one word and avoided all these problems.

As expected, Dark Tiger is an android. I'm a bit disappointed that the fight against the other heroes is skipped entirely though - I know it's a beatdown, but we weren't spared that against Jake, why now? I just think that we've been having too many Tiger/Barnaby fights who has similar power sets, seeing other various powers of the heroes will be interesting.

What I enjoy is Ben and Saito, their interaction with each other is pretty funny. Maverick and Rotwang is being very James Bond Villain-y, all he needs to do is press a button to remove the hero threat, but of course he wants to play with them first. I'm guessing there's some friendship speech next episode and they end up pressing the button at the same time and everyone is saved...although that may be a bit corny, I can see them doing that.

Firstly, it's not a 24 minutes fight since there are other plots and other characters. Secondly, since when a fight can not bring plot with it ? We're not talking about bad US comic books here. It depends on how the fight is handled. My suggestion is just to make a badass fighting scene with plot in it which will be much entertaining to wtach than what we saw in this episode. It's a super heroes anime, yet, we pratically don't have fighting scenes. I'm against actual comics books which are bad and have too much fighting scene but with T&B, it's the contrary : There're not enough of them which is a shame.

We're talking about a big sucess anime which deserve much more budget? Go watch an episode of Sacred Seven. You'll see the difference.

Given the lack of Tiger & Bunny pre-series advertising and the lack of announced merchandising until the middle of the series, I think it's a fair deduction that Tiger & Bunny's success caught the producers off-guard. Tiger & Bunny has the budget it has because it wasn't expected to be a big success.

Yeah, fights can help to develop plot, mostly in a cringeworthy fashion, I'm pretty sure you don't want lengthy dialogues during a fight, or extensive flashbacks or inner thoughts... :\

I watch Sacred Seven as well, I wouldn't say its animation is any better or worse. Sure, the colours used are more vibrant (obviously because of the different nature of the 2 shows), I wasn't particularly impressed with anything else about its animation though, I'd say it's equally good, if not worse than that found in TnB. So yes, there is a difference, but it is not a difference in quality.

And personally, it was that reason that some people decided to pop and watch Tiger and Bunny, the UnderDog of the Year and a good candidate for Anime of the Decade. Yet Sunrise needed that kick in the nuts to wake up and try something new.

BTW, how is Sacred Seven going? Is it gaining enough money to keep Sunrise's exec happy or the T&B hype is killing them?


I would have also loved to see all the heroes fight, and I hope they add that in an OVA sometime in the following months.

About the episode, I like it. I also had the feeling that the "bunny" word will do the magic. I hope we get a great finale!!

If you are implying that Sacred Seven was Sunrise's ace for the season. I don't think that's the case. It has even less budget than Tiger and Bunny. It's going to end at episode 12/13 it seems. Tiger and Bunny is going for a full season.

What Sunrise is preparing for is Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere. http://genesis-horizon.net/
This show, on the other hand, has a huge budget and is going to span around 3 cours (36 episodes)

Then Sunrise's system is bad. If they can't adapt their budget to the popularity, it's a bad system. For example, they can add a system based on the crowd funding. If people are pleased with the serie they can help it by spneding some of their money on it.

Yes it's better like that. You can have dialogue, flashback and tought but not too much. It's not the meaning of a fight. However, it doesn't mean there is none and futhermore, it's not like I'm asking for just fighting scene. I'm aking for good plot and good fighting scene. Right now, we don't have the last one.

It seems to me than Sacred Seven animatoin is better than T&B when it comes to fighting scenes.

You can't compare Sacred Seven budget and T&B one like that. SS is only 13 episodes when T&B is 26.

I don't think the people that are going on about Barnaby regaining his memories when Tiger called him "Bunny" are grasping exactly what that nickname entails here because it's actually pretty important as much as it seems like a silly nickname.

See if you've been paying attention the whole show you'll definitely notice that Tiger has been calling him "Bunny" since pretty much the beginning of their relationship and he's the ONLY one that does it and consistently at that. As such while the rest of Sternbild knows the team by the name "Tiger and Barnaby", we the viewer have come to know them on a personal level as "Tiger and Bunny" and that's also become a symbol of their friendship too.

Since the real Tiger is the only one that's ever called him Bunny, it would be a contradiction for some random murderer Bunny has never met to call him that. Maverick's mind control is supposed to fall apart at even the slightest contradiction, and that's a pretty big one that even he didn't know about (I think he never quite realized just how close Barnaby got to Tiger after the Jake incident) so of course that's what happens.

I'm a little hard pressed to think of something more appropriate. Some might call it cliche, I ask what they'd prefer as alternative here. I know a lot of people were hung up on the pin (and that can still come into play yet for something) and perhaps that not being used is what's led them to become upset here (past history of Sunrise shows reminds me that when things don't go exactly as people predicted they often get a little antsy regardless of whether what does happen works fine or not), but I find little if anything to directly fault the show for here.

Speaking of Sunrise, they have a lot more than just Sacred Seven in the works alongside Tiger and Bunny right now. In fact at last count they are seemingly working on something like 7 shows simultaneously (Tiger and Bunny, Sacred Seven, Gundam Age, Horizon on The Middle of Nowhere, Kami: Phi Brain no Puzzle, Gundam UC episode 04 and Gintama') and even though they are subdivided into many different studios with their own buildings, that's still a lot of money tied up all at once. The fact that all the shows still look good to excellent with maybe a handful of budget episodes thrown in....I don't even know how they are doing it. They must just have that much reserve capital to play with I guess.

Let's see....what else....I really like how the H-01 has been handled so far. The fact that the heroes were beaten off-screen creates an appropriate amount of suspsense for what should be Tiger and Bunny's final battle. We know it's supposed to be extremely powerful and that the odds are stacked against T&B, but we haven't see how and that means it'll have to wait till next episode. Also the whole Hero bonds theme has pretty much come full circle in this episode only to set up it's being put to the ultimate test next episode. The heroes will have to prove that they are worthy of keeping the mantle of Stern Bild's protectors next episode and I have no doubt it will prove interesting.

No offense, but I think you've managed to completely miss the point of this show. This isn't built as a pure big budget action series, it's built as a deconstruction of the hero archetype, where the bonds that the heroes forge in their personal relationships take center stage and their personal problems frequently threaten to overwhelm their desire to do good and leave them in despair instead. Each episode is about overcoming each new challenge on a personal level and the heroes finding that which allows them to carry on doing good and being a hero for the people.

It's a very human story, that's been it's true strength and that's also something that too much emphasis on action is likely to overshadow. Personally I'd rather have this than the anime equivalent of an SFX bonanza (not that I even think the fights have looked bad at all in this show) and if I wanted the latter I'd just step out to my local theatre and partake in what is more than likely to be a souless experience.

We'll get to see longer/better fight scenes if T&B gets a second season, given how much it'll sell.

No offense, but I think it's you who completely miss my point I don't want T&B to be a pure big budget acton series. I want this serie to have some good fight sometimes. Right now, it's not the case. You can do what you said with good fighting scenes sometime too.

Well I'm sorry that this series hasn't met your personal "good fight" quota then.

Though what exactly about where this show is right now that requires "good fights" I fail to understand. Would you have preferred it if Bunny just went to town on Tiger and beat him to within an inch of his life in some overblown combat sequence? Would you have preferred it if the heroes just beat the crap out of each other in some epic fight and then have Maverick just swoop in and clean up for the win? I mean the whole point these past few episodes is that Tiger has been trying NOT to fight the other heroes too much cause they are his friends and he just wants to snap them back to their senses.

This episode sets up a fight with the H-01 near the end and the preview indeed shows that there will be a battle between it and T&B. The time for fighting has come again, so that's what is going to happen. Hopefully that will satisfy your quota.
