August 14th sees a bunch of events to celebrate the birthday of Kotetsu T. Kaburagi / Wild Tiger. Below are the ones we currently know of, let us know if we missed any!
There’s a WILD TIGER Special Birthday Party live stream on August 14th, with Hiroaki Hirata (Kotetsu), Masakazu Morita (Barnaby), Kenji Tominaga (Wild Tiger’s suit actor for The Live) and Hikaru Takahashi (Sky High’s suit actor). The stream is paid, 2800 JPY + 100 JPY fee, and the archive will be available until August 28th. Fans can send birthday wishes and submit questions through a webform (in Japanese) to Hirata and Tominaga, and also leave other messages for the series creators, or request specific merchandise to be made.
Japanese Fan Event
The Japanese fans are arranging an event on Twitter, and tweeting birthday messages and fan art to Kotetsu using the hashtag #ワイルドタイガー生誕祭2022.
This is Sternbild Event
And of course there’s our own event, Wild Birthday Party! Please check the link for details, we’ll have both a gallery event (Friend Rice style, if you took part in those in the past you know the drill), and a Twitter hashtag #wildbirthdayparty for the celebrations.
Even though we don’t know when Kotetsu’s birthday officially is, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate, right? The Japanese side of the fandom has decided on a date to celebrate his birthday, with the following reason: Kotetsu is wearing amethysts (associated with February in general), and Tiger’s eye (the color of his eyes) is the birthstone of February 17.
So February 17th it is!
If you’ve taken part in the previous events, you know how this goes. Make some birthday goodies and take photos of them, then send the photos to us. This time you can send in digital fan art, pictures of traditional art or handicrafts, and as always in T&B style, pictures of food. Fried rice is always acceptable, and birthday cakes are a given. Include Kotetsu in the picture in some way to show the presents (or the party if you decide throw one) is for him!
Please send your pictures to mail[at]thisissternbild.com by February 18th.
