TWO Tiger & Bunny Films Announced at Hero Awards 2011

Sunrise and Bandai Visual put together the Hero Awards 2011 to announce the super-secret Tiger & Bunny "Next Project." The event was held twice, once during the day and once at night. The Hero Awards 2011, which went down in Japan on November 13 (today!) brought news of not one, but TWO planned Tiger & Bunny films! The first being scheduled for release in 2012.  Those that attended during the day were asked to not post the big news on social media sites until after the second event.

Word is the event will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in April. It will more than likely only be released in Japan, so one can only hope it will be region-free and come with subtitles for those of us that wish to import it. I have been patiently waiting for an announcement of a U.S. Blu-ray release and it has been confirmed that an english dub is in the pre-production stages. Subtitled versions are available now in a Blu-ray region-free version from Japan but unfortunately run $50.00+ for each disc, with discs containing only 1-2 episodes each!
I cannot wait to see where the story goes next. The series ended with the mystery of who else is involved in and how far reaching Oroburous is, still up in the air. Will these movies answer these questions? Will they be stand alone adventures? Prequels? Start speculating now. 2012 can't get here soon enough for Tiger & Bunny fans.
