King of Catchphrases poll or “It’s so hard to choose!”

There’s a “King of Catchphrases” poll on Sunrise’s website about which lines from each Hero (and Lunatic) in Tiger & Bunny are people’s favourites. Results will be given at the Hero Awards on November 13th. The voting is open until 23:59 JST on October 26th, and you can vote once a day.

Even though there are seven days for voting and seven lines for each character – so you could technically vote each once – it’s still so hard to choose. Especially with Sky High because I’d like to vote all of his lines every day. And while Sky High has the best selection of lines, I feel kinda sorry for Rock Bison, his lines aren’t that memorable and two of them are just screaming. (If I remember correctly, his seiyuu said something about “gyuu” and “moo” not even being proper catchphrases in the show that was on Bandai Namco Live channel earlier today.)

You can also add your own lines, and because Barnaby’s line about fried rice is there by default already, I’m so very tempted to add Kotetsu’s line about eyelashes… Hehe.

Translated catchphrases from the poll under the cut, most of them referenced from the official subs. (Tho I gotta admit some of the wordings in English sound kinda derpy now that I see them out of context.)

Oh and updated Hero Awards live viewing event shenanigans are here.

  1. I have no clue how to type it in Japanese, but my personal favorite from Rock Bison was when he went to the concert in episode 14 and said something like, “I came to see you dance, damn!”
