Or as the version in my language goes, “a beloved person has many names”. And Barnaby’s seiyuu Masakazu Morita certainly lives up to this saying, judging by Tiger’s seiyuu Hiroaki Hirata’s ever growing list of nicknames for him. Twitter user @i14015 has been keeping track of these nicknames for years, and I thought it’d be fun to romanize it for everyone’s enjoyment and so we could appreciate Hirata’s ability to come up with a new one so often.
Here’s the romanized list (TL note: usagi means rabbit):
Morita-san: Morita-kun Banikazu Banii Usa-chan Usausa Morita-kun (with different spelling for the suffix) Banibani Banira-chan & Banisuke Fushigi no kuni no arisu no shirousagi (White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland) Baniyan Bani. Baniraian (Bunnyryan) Banin Banipon Baniiita Banipyon Banita Masakazu-san & Morita Banikazu-san Banicchi Baniratte (Bunnylatte) Banikko Baniko Usagi-chan Usada Usakazu-kun Banichin Morita Usakazu-san Banita Usakazu-san Buddy Baninko Baanishu
We’ll update the list when another nickname pops up, doesn’t look like Hirata’s done coming up with new ones yet!
Prepare some fried rice. (Practice first if needed, Barnaby practiced too!)
Take a picture that includes both TIGER&BUNNY and your delicious fried rice.
You may use screencaps from anime, official merchandise, cosplay, and fan art of your own making for your picture.
SUBMISSIONS NOW CLOSED. Thanks, and thanks again everyone!
The submission period will run from March 27th to April 3rd at 20:00 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 rice you cooked!)
