The Twitter account for Tiger & Bunny revealed three characters and cast members who will join the show in season 2. The show will come back on Netflix from April 8, 2022, with the cast returning to reprise their roles. It is unknown if these three are the only new additions, or if more will show up more closer to the debut date.
The three new Tiger & Bunny characters (from left to right) are:
- Thomas Taurus (“He Is Thomas”): Nobunaga Shimazaki
- Subaru Sengoku (“Mr. Black”): Shoya Chiba
- Lara Tchaikoskaya (“Magical Cat”): Tomori Kusunoki
All three appear as their civilian identities. Shimazaki is known for his roles as Kazuha from Genshin Impact. He also plays Dantes, Ritsuka (Male), and Arjuna in Fate/Grand Order. Chiba’s roles include Kou Minamoto from Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun and Kazuki Aoyama from Tribe Nine. Lastly, Kusunoki previously appeared as Romin Kirishima in Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens and Neiru Aonuma in Wonder Egg Priority.
Tiger & Bunny came out just a little over a decade ago in 2011. Sunrise produced season 2 partially to commemorate this anniversary. Tiger & Bunny follows professional heroes in the city of Sternbild, though they are more like reality TV stars than anything considering they are often competing for points and sponsors. It also follows the heroes’ daily lives and struggles in their civilian identities.
Tiger & Bunny season 2 will air worldwide on Netflix in April 2022. The first season is on Hulu and Funimation, but it will appear on YouTube as well.
