Yoshitomo Yonetani directs the second film in the ongoing tale of our superheroes. Written by Masafumi Nishida (Oh Brother, Oh Sister!) we see Tiger and Bunny in an all new adventure set after the anime series in the aftermath of the “Maverick Event”.
Hero tv is still in big demand with the citizens of Sternbild City with it high towers and beautiful plazas. But things have not gone well for our intrepid duo, as they have been demoted from the First Part League to the non sponsored Second Part League. Wild Tiger/Kotetsu T. Kaburagi is happy taking down petty thieves with rest of their league, Tiger and Bunny being the senior members as the others are perceived as heroes in training, and are pretty inept really. This is why Bunny/Barnaby Brooks Jr yearns to get back to the daring escapades of the First Part League, but with Apollon Media struggling for money, cuts have had to be made. But when the most successful business man on the planet, Mark Schneider, takes over, there are new opportunities as our pair of heroes are invited for a meeting with the big man himself. But it isn’t all happy days as Tiger is in for disappointment.
When strange unexplained events start taking place, all of the First Part League are baffled as to reason behind these occurrences, until Bunny notices that after the last event they seem to follow an ancient tale of a goddess that punishes a village because of their greed and avarice. But what is causing these events?
When three NEXT’s (Noted Entities with eXtraordinary Talents) appear across the city on Justice Day, the whole of the First Part League are stretched out across the city, trying to bring down these very dangerous people.
With a great seamless mixture between anime and CGI you are in for a treat as the whole gang (Karina Lyle / Blue Rose, Antonio Lopez / Rock Bison, Huang Pao-Lin / Dragon Kid, Nathan Seymour / Fire Emblem, Keith Goodman / Sky High, Ivan Karelin / Origami Cyclone,) battle across the city, with a nod to elements of American animation this should have wide appeal with both sexes.
