    • I know dat feel, I’m getting all the books…

      I think that from comparing the contents of this and the Roman Album from Tokuma Shoten that this Gossips book might be the best overall guide. The other guide books I have from Kadokawa Shoten are all high quality and very nice. Of course it’ll depend a bit on presentation, but I’m going to review the next set of guide books too once they arrive.

  1. It was a real inner debate happening in my mind yesterday evening as I were deciding whether to get the gossips book or not. Since I’m too lazy to actually start learning Japanese more seriously (and since gossips contain more text than pictures), I’ve minimized my order to Roman Album and TV Hero Fan vol.2 only. But damn. Now I really want this book too.

  2. I’m glad I ordered it, it looks very promising! The cover is gorgeous, Kotetsu looks *so* sexy, and even though Barnaby looks awfully feminine, he is handsome as always! The poster is a nice bonus, my new room is craving some posters on its walls, lol.

  3. HNNNNG do want ;_; . the hundred questions and the two days do entice me XD. But yes, if and when Aki decides to do the tl I’ll have to rely on your tl to enjoy it…
    And the cover is just :Q___ *grabby hands at Kotetsu*

    • I do plan to review it when it’s out but CDJapan actually has a really good description of the contents.

      Special book release from anime series “TIGER & BUNNY” including story guide (all 25 episodes), two pin-ups (Kotetsu and Barnaby), character file, setting guide (art & original drawing), illustrations, cast & staff interview, and more.

      I’m waiting for them to release the cover picture for it and maybe more detailed information that’d warrant a post on its own.
