News Tiger & Bunny Gets Manga Series (Updated)
posted on 2011-07-26 20:00 EDT
This year's 35th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that Hiroshi Ueda (Full Metal panic! Sigma, The Story of Beijing Opera) will illustrate a manga based on the Tiger & Bunny superhero anime starting in this year's 5th issue of Shueisha's bi-monthly Miracle Jump magazine, to be released in October.
Weekly Young Jump announced earlier this month that Masakazu Katsura will be drawing a special 39-page one-shot Tiger & Bunny manga. Katsura is the original character designer of Tiger & Bunny, and he is also the creator of such manga as DNA² , I''s, Video Girl Ai, and Zetman.
Sunrise's Tiger & Bunny anime centers around heroes for hire — super powered beings known as NEXT who wear sponsor logos while fighting crime on live television. Keiichi Satou (Karas director, The Big O character/mechanical designer) is helming the project, and Yoshihiro Ike (Blood: The Last Vampire, Karas, Dead Leaves) is composing the music.
Viz Media is streaming the anime outside Japan as it airs.
