This news snippet from Nikkei Marketing Journal posted in a Japanese blog hints very strongly that a second season might come true. It’s still in planning stage but considering the current popularity of the show, I’ll be surprised if they don’t get it greenlit. The blog entry also mentions that there’s an event planned that’ll be tieing in with the airing of the final episode on September 17th.
I was tracking down the article and found that Tiger & Bunny is actually one of today’s Nikkei Marketing Journal’s main news. In short, the headline on the site reads “Bill-board Heroes Break Down the Common Rules of Anime” and the blurb text seems very excited about the new business model Tiger & Bunny has presented.
I find this pretty funny, since one of the reasons they had to get all those sponsors was to even get the project off the ground. It’s innovative, sure, but it’s not like they had much choice. As for second season, I’ll get excited if Satou will still be directing and Nishida writing it. Until then I’m gonna just wait and see.
