TIGER&BUNNY 2 Part 2 Commemorative Friend Rice Event

To celebrate the release of TIGER&BUNNY 2 Part 2, we again invite you all to cook up some fried rice or any other food featured in the series! To grab some inspiration, you can check out the original event gallery. If you’ve never cooked fried rice before and don’t know where to start, we have translated Kotetsu’s own fried rice recipe. If rice isn’t your fancy, how about baking some Samantha’s pound cake or cooking some chicken and broccoli in Thomas’s style? Or if you want to order a Happy Meal Happiness Set to serve to the twins, that’s between you and the hamburger restaurant.

How to take part:

  1. Prepare some delicious food featured in TIGER&BUNNY. (Practice first if needed, Barnaby practiced too!)
  2. Take a picture that includes both TIGER&BUNNY and your culinary creation.
    • You may use screencaps from anime, official merchandise, cosplay, and fan art of your own making for your picture.
    • Your submission must be SFW.
  3. Submit your picture either through the form (requires a Google account) or directly by email to mail[at]thisissternbild.com. You may make multiple submissions!

The submissions are open until Thursday October 6th, 2022 at 14:00 GMT.

After the submission form closes, the pictures will be posted as a gallery for everyone to view. (We’ll have the gallery up as soon as possible, but it depends on how much you’ve cooked!)

We can’t wait to see what you cook up this time!

Disclaimer: Submission data will be kept for a week after the gallery is published just in case something needs fixing, after that it will be deleted. No emails or personal data are collected through the form, but signing in is required for submitting a file.

A Brief History of Friend Rice

If you’re a new fan brought in with S2, friend rice may sound weird to you. “Friend rice” is a typo that originated in the T&B threads on 4chan in 2011, and it became a meme in the fandom. The first Friend Rice Event was held during the week between episodes 24 and 25 airing, when everyone was unsure if a certain character would even survive. It was a very spontaneous thing, we posted on Twitter that we would cook fried rice during the week and suddenly, everyone else wanted to join in on it too. It turned into a deluge of pictures of fried rice (on average 50 pictures per day!) and a massive thank you to the creators of the series.

Since then, smaller and more planned Friend Rice Events have taken place, the previous one was in 2021 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series. With these events we hope that people have some fun cooking and showing their love for TIGER&BUNNY and their favorite characters.
