posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Lantis, the music subsidiary of Bandai Visual, posted details about the Tiger & Bunny anime's Best of Hero character song album on Monday.
The 11-track album includes songs with Hiroaki Hirata as Kotetsu T. Kaburagi/Wild Tiger, Masakazu Morita as Barnaby Brooks Jr., Mariya Ise as Pao-Lin Huang/Dragon Kid, Minako Kotobuki as Karina Lyle/Blue Rose, Go Inoue as Keith Goodman/Sky High, and other members of the television anime's main cast. The CD's "You are the HERO!!" song is a duet between the main characters Wild Tiger and Barnaby Brooks Jr.
Best of Hero will ship on February 8 and will cost 3,000 yen (about US$39). Lantis shipped a character song ablum featuring the series' title heroes in August 2011, and a similar CD featuring the idol/hero character Blue Rose (Minako Kotobuki) was released last July. The record company also shipped a character album featuring all three characters last October.
Sunrise's Tiger & Bunny anime aired in Japan from April to September of last year. The story 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) helmed the project, and Yoshihiro Ike (Blood: The Last Vampire, Karas, Dead Leaves) composed the music.
