An updated and revised timeline based on the one that was in the Easter Eggs fanvideo. The series uses an alternate timeline, so their year NC 1978 isn’t the same as our 1978.
I’ve seen more than a few comments about Masafumi Nishida, the screenwriter and co-creator of Tiger & Bunny in the lines of “no one knows who this guy is”. True enough, if you just look at anime sites you won’t find anything on him. Tiger & Bunny is the first anime he’s worked on but he’s far from rookie.
Disclaimer: Translations from Japanese sources are by me. I’m far from a pro, so if you spot any errors please don’t hesitate to comment so I can fix them.
Masafumi NISHIDA (西田征史) born May 22, 1975 in Tokyo is a screenwriter, actor and director. He’s a graduate of Gakushuin University law school. He was part of a Horipro Inc. comedy duo from 1995 to 1999, and after that he has worked on numerous movie, TV drama and stage productions.

And we have to put a recommendation for Go Inoue’s Twitter. The guy is as moe as his character and occasionally has hilarious conversations with Keiichi Satou.
