I wasn’t going to get this one… but now I really want it, I’m going to be so poor after T&B XD
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.
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.
I mean Official Hero Book 2. Too many different titles are making me confused.
Gosh. Simply wants this. What a beautiful cover.
But I´ll have to rely on you to do the translation. lol
Aki may be interested in translating the interviews, we’ll see. I’m not sure if all the content is new, because Hero TV Fan has reprints from the publishers anime magazines and Roman Album probably will have reprinted interviews from Animedia. (Kadokawa Shoten publishes Newtype magazine.)
Implying I won’t end up translating half of that book anyway
Actually I saw on /a/ that they were talking about translating the 100 questions and 48 hours bits once the books is out. Who knows?
We’ll see, they usually translate small bits of these things. Anyway, if they end up taking their time or not tling everything, I’m on it >w<b
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.
Kotetsu always looks good, even when he’s not even trying. ^^
I agree, and I guess that’s why everybody in the fandom is in love with him! XD
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*
Do you do review on the Roman Album book? I have no idea what it is ToT
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.
I meant to say “What it has”
EEEEEEKKKKK, you are fast >”<. LOL
