Manga UK confirmed on twitter that it still plans to distribute Tiger & Bunny, which Kaze announced as an acquisition at MCM Expo in May 2011. Manga said it would release the title in partnership with Kaze, but added that there was no confirmed release date: "Will wait to hear from Kaze UK." Earlier in the month, Kaze said that it was planning to release Tiger & Bunny in the third quarter of 2012, "ideally in time for MCM Expo October."
The anime centres 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) directed the project, and Masafumi Nishida (live-action Kaibutsu-kun) wrote and oversaw the scripts. Manga artist Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai, DNA², I''s, Zetman), a well-known fan of Batman and other superhero comics, created the original character designs.
