On August 14, 2022, Tiger and Bunny staff released a key image cheering the upcoming second cour and season 2 finale.
The picture shows Kotetsu (Ferocious Tiger) and Barnaby back to back in their hero suits with their faces bared.
You can see the new key visual here:
Japanese singer, songwriter and model Taichi Mukai will perform the new closing theme song “Pilot” for Part 2 of the series. He has released a teaser trailer for his upcoming song on the Taichi Mukai official YouTube channel! You can watch it here:
I was delighted to be chosen to sing the final theme song for the second cour of Tiger and Bunny 2! I hope my song expresses the deep connection between the characters. My song is also about the will to move on in the midst of grief and resentment, so never giving up. I hope fans of the anime can relate to the song and that it expresses the feelings found in part two of Tiger and Bunny 2.

What is “Tiger and Hare 2” about?
The story takes place in a world where super-powered beings known as NEXT exist and this reality has created heroes and villains. Some of the heroes are hired and sport sponsor logos as they fight crime on live television. In Season 1, Wild Tiger and Barnaby Brooks reluctantly team up to work together as superheroes to fight for peace and their sponsors.
Season 2 added three new heroes: He Is Thomas, Mr. Black and Magical Cat. Mr. Black and He Is Thomas resemble Kotestu and Barnaby in the way they acted in Season 1 with their conflicting personalities and reluctance to band together as heroes. The main threat in Season 2 were the two villains on the road to Constellation – Fugan and Mugan. In the first few episodes, a flashforward showed a cornered Barnaby. On their way to Constellation, Fugan and Mugan are shown defeating heroes around the world.
However, after defeating Fugan and Mugan, what will be the new threat in Part 2? Fans speculate that He Is Thomas could end up becoming a villain due to certain clues dropped during the show. It’s possible that the other heroes will be forced to fight him at some point in the future.
Thomas acted more like an anti-hero operating in a gray area in season 2 than a indeed Hero. Even after the couple betrayed Thomas, he vehemently decided he would never Trust others again – it seems like there was a reason to set this up. It will be exciting to see what they have planned for Thomas in Part 2. Will Thomas remain a hero? Or does he turn into a villain?
