On Apr. 3, 2020 the long-awaited sequel to “Tiger & Bunny” was announced under the title “Tiger & Bunny 2”. In response to this announcement, “TiBunny Season 2” started trending on Twitter.

“Tiger & Bunny” is an original action hero anime that released as a TV series in 2011, and had two theatrical releases in 2012 and 2014 respectively. The new series will see several people resuming their previous roles, the role of Kaburagi T. Kotetsu will be resumed by Hirata Hiroaki and the role of Barnaby Brooks Jr. by Morita Mazakazu. Nishida Masafumi will once again function as the story editor, and Katsura Masakazu will again be in charge of Character & Hero Designer. In addition to the announcement of the team members who will be returning for Season 2, new members will also be joining the fray, like new director Kase Mitsuko.
It's been 9 years since the series was broadcast on TV… On Apr. 3 when the new season was announced, “TiBunny Season 2” started trending on Twitter.
Fans cried out with joy: “Congratulations on the 2nd season of TiBunny! I'm looking forwards to seeing all the heroes again!”, “Thanks for the second season, and also thank you!”, “I've been waiting for an announcement like this all this time”
Some comments also pointed out some coincidences regarding the two main characters and their “tiger” and “bunny” theming. “The first season aired during the year of the rabbit, and season 2 is airing during the year of the tiger! That's seriously good! Did they aim for that? Have they been aiming for that since season 1?”, “Season 1 = 2011 “rabbit”, Season 2 = 2022 “tiger”, if this the TiBunny cycle, we can expect to see season 3 continue in 2023 = “rabbit”, I will start saving money now”
Finally, some comments were made regarding the new series director Kase:
“Waaaaaaaa-!!! What an incredible surprise!!! Director Kase Mitsuko!!!!”, “She's been involved with anime ranging from 1977 Voltes V anime, to Daimos, Trider G7, Xabungle, Votoms, Layzner, Patlabor, V Gundam, GaoGaiGar, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, and even directed Gundam 0083!! (The promised great victory…)”, “If we are talking about Kase-san, it would be director of the movie 0083 and 08th MS Team for Gundam, and the nostalgic person for the production of Votoms, so I am looking forward to the detailed clash between two guys.”
“Tiger & Bunny 2” will start airing in 2022.
