The official website for the Tiger & Bunny anime posted the music video for the opening theme song from the upcoming Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising- film on Saturday. The video highlights the "Nemesis" song that the Japanese band NOVELS is contributing to the film:
The film will revolve around a mystery that happens on the day of the "Justice Day" festival that celebrates Sternbild's legendary goddess. The three mysterious NEXT characters attack Sternbild City:
Mugihito plays the strange old man Johnny Wong
Nana Mizuki plays the mysterious, exotic woman Kasha Graham
Houchu Ohtsuka plays Mark Schneider, the successful and charismatic new owner of Apollon Media
Yūichi Nakamura also joins the cast as Golden Ryan, Barnaby Brooks Jr.'s new partner in the film. Character designer Masakazu Katsura (Zetman, Video Girl Ai, DNA²) will also be making his voice-acting debut in a cameo for the new movie. The film will again star Hiroaki Hirata as Kotetsu T. Kaburagi, Masakazu Morita as Barnaby Brooks Jr., Koji Yusa as Lunatic, Rina Hidaka as Kaede Kaburagi, and other returning cast members.
The television series scriptwriter Masafumi Nishida is again writing the screenplay and serving as story director, while Yoshitomo Yonetani is directing the film. Unison Square Garden performs the single "Harmonized Finale" as the ending theme for the movie.
The film was originally scheduled to open last fall but has been delayed until February 8. Viz will screen the film theatrically in North America within the same month that the film opens in Japan. Novels will release a new album with the songs "Missing Link" (the second opening theme for the original television anime series), "Earth Diver" (the opening theme for Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Beginning), and "Nemesis" on February 12.
