posted on by Egan Loo
The anime studio Sunrise and the television network MBS revealed via newspaper advertising and a website on Wednesday morning that they will launch a new television series called Tiger & Bunny. The series will premiere next April, and the Tokyo MX station will run the program at 11:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. It will also run on Osaka's MBS station late at night, on the BS11 Digital satellite channel on Saturdays at 24:30 (Sundays at 12:30 a.m.), and on the streaming website Ustream.
Keiichi Satou (Karas director, The Big O character/mechanical designer) is helming the project, and Masafumi Nishida (live-action Kaibutsu-kun) is writing and overseeing the scripts. Yoshihiro Ike (Blood: The Last Vampire, Karas, Dead Leaves) is composing the music. Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai, DNA², I''s, Zetman), a well-known fan of Batman and other superhero comics, is creating the original character designs.
The newspaper advertising for Tiger & Bunny offers to place company logos within the series on the characters, who are called both "heroes" and seishain (company employees).
