Tiger & Bunny is getting so popular that the characters started making cameos in other series even before the series finished airing. Barnaby seems to pop up most often, though Kotetsu has been moonlighting on the side, too. There are probably more examples, and I am not sure which series some of these pictures are from. Feels kinda like “Spot Origami Cyclone” -game but instead of just T&B you’re playing it with all the current anime and manga.
And for lulz, the photoshopped version of the above.
The fourth reference is a page of the manga series “It’s not my fault that I’m not popular!” It was hilarious to spot it while reading and after that I have keep noticing many of these too (Mayo Chiki, D.Gray-man, Sket Dance). Now this makes me hope my favorite artist would draw cameos in their series…
Thanks! I’ve seen that one around a lot but always missed where it was from.
These are the most adorable things I love!!!! Taibani is everywhere!!!
I know they somehow blatantly mentioned T&B in a recent Gensiken chapter too, but it was in words rather than the characters appearing.
Hey, what is this from?
I dont know how true this is since I don’t play Yu-gi-oh, but allegedly there’s a new side deck that’s Taibani themed
Here’s the link to the deck list
Hi! That was me who made the post :3
Sauce is here if you don’t believe my word: http://www50.atwiki.jp/1548908-tf6/pages/282.html
Too bad the deck is kind of crap, would love to play one
If anyone is interested, here’s the Genshiken T&B reference someone was talking about. I almost forgot it.
I have a sinking feeling I know exactly which terrible, terrible h-doujin they are referring to…
Wow, love all the taibani references 😀 I wonder how long it’ll take for it to show up on Gintama 😛
I’ve been waiting for it to show up in Gintama for a few months now.
Heh, that’s my photo I took from Weekly Jump with Kotetsu masquerading as a random student. If anyone’s curious the series is a gag manga called Chou Nyouryoku-sha Saiki Kusuo no Sainan. It doesn’t seem to be all that well-known though; I think it began as a oneshot and only recently has become a series? (or maybe it was on hiatus for a while)
Thanks, I was wondering what manga it was. I don’t keep up with Jump stuff much and I’ve never even heard of this one before.
I’m not sure if the Penguindrum one is a reference to TB. It’s probably a parady of the Takefuji dance (from a Japanese advert) that I’m fairly sure TB was parodying too. That’s why it says “Borrow responsibly” (because Takefuji is a money-loaning business).
Oh I see, I hadn’t seen that commercial. Just about everyone I know who’s seen both T&B and Penguin Drum has commented on how they were parodying T&B in that Penguin episode, so I included it.
absolutely nothing to do with the above anything, but did any of you see the Nikkei write-up on T&B?
saw this on someone else’s blog. unfortunately can’t access the full Nikkei article (membership blag).
‘It’s Softbankman to anime’s rescue!’ oh, Kotetsu!
I tried to register a free trial to read that thing at Nikkei, but they still wanted my credit card info. Derp.
I found another versions of a certain manga page in the first picture:
Images are not mine. They’re from an awesome tumblr user
Still don’t know what manga it is from, though. Anyone has an idea?
Apparently they’re panels from the manga “Anikoi”, which is currently serialized in Shounen Ace; http://blog.livedoor.jp/qmanews/archives/51916581.html
Thank you for information! ;D
In the first image, the second manga sample is from Suzue Miuchi’s “Glass Mask,” which has been in serialization since the 70’s (I find this pretty amusing because if this isn’t just a result of Miuchi drawing old-school hairdos, then that would mean she is watching T&B).
I have no idea where the third image is from though.
Lol I’d only seen the sket dance one. Also waiting on a Gintama parody
what episode is that in Sket Dance? D8
I may have passed it without knowing it.If only I saw T&B earlier T^T
I’m not sure, it was the one that aired around the date of this post so early October. (I don’t watch Sket Dance.)
