Wild Tiger’s Birthday Events

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!

Official Event

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.

Let’s party WILDLY!

A Bunny By Any Other Name…

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!

10th Anniversary Friend Rice Event

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of TIGER&BUNNY, we again invite you all to cook up some fried rice! To grab some inspiration, you can check out the original event gallery. If you’ve never cooked fried rice before, we have translated Kotetsu’s own fried rice recipe.

How to take part:

  1. Prepare some fried rice. (Practice first if needed, Barnaby practiced too!)
  2. 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.
  3. 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!)

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