Fans wants 2nd season.

Sunrise: Here's 2 movies, a musical, and last but not least, a live-action movie.

lol Anyway, I look forward to see how good this ends up being.

One of the few shows perfect for live-action. Got some good producing it,so it will be something to keep an eye on.

I'm still a bit apprehensive given previous anime live-action efforts, but this is the ideal series to try it with. Plus the original staff seems to be somewhat involved, which is reassuring.

Still wish we'd get a second season though. The only really new content we're getting right now is Ueda Hiroshi's manga, which covers what happened during the anime's one-year timeskip.

I can see this working for two reasons.

1. America has a raging hard-on for superhero movies.
2. Since the cast is ethnically diverse, we don't have to worry about white-washing.

$10 says either the name of 'Bunny' gets changed, or 'Bunny' becomes a woman.

You know, because manly men don't have superhero names like 'Bunny'.

Kinda hoping it bombs though. Leave my OTP alone, Hollywood Evil or Very Mad

Since it takes place in a Western setting (heck, I heard on YT video of anime con in Aug. '11 that the producer said it was supposed to be like a NYC-type setting) and it has diversity (including a gay guy), this is why I think this is a more ideal live-action adaptation,

Could be interesting, but until I hear about a director, and more importantly, a script, I'm chalking it up as Hollywood vaporware. It does make me wonder though, if folks are so willing to put (a LOT of) cash into this property, why can't we just have a 2nd season already?

I totally see this getting made. And by 'totally' I mean 'not likely.'

Well seeing a video with Ron Howard talking about Tiger and Bunny, was just surreal.

This is good out of all the Anime series they could make a live action adaptation of this has got to be one of the best ones on account of the whole super hero thing. Also I hope that they keep all of the original sponsors intact. Smile

Tiger and Bunny is as American as you get by anime standards. It's set in America and the characters are American, so it can't really be Americanized. However, there are some "Japanese" details that are in the show, which shouldn't be glossed over. Kotetsu is of Japanese descent and I would like to see a Japanese (read Japanese, not "Asian") American to play Kotetsu. It would be nice. Not a deal breaker, but nice.

Having said that, the show isn't a popular as it should be over here. Yes, the dub is considered to be one of the best (if not the best next to Fate/Zero) of the 2010s, but the dub even had more play in JAPAN of all places. The critically acclaimed English dub of T&B is more popular in a non-English speaking country (admittedly, it is the country of origin) than the country where the dub comes from.

If I bet, I'd bet my wage that it won't be made at all. And if it's done, it will be after several changes in the staff and becoming a "Dragonball Evolution 2.0".

I am that optimistic.

FFS, can we stop bringing up DBE? We might as well bring up "Batman & Robin" every time they announce a new superhero movie.

I can see them making a trilogy out of it. The first movie can cover the first episode up to the fight with Lunatic, the second covering the Jake Martinez arc, and the third covering the last part of the series.
