On August 14, 2022, the staff for Tiger and Bunny released a key visual hyping the upcoming second cour and finale of its second season.

The visual depicts Kotetsu (Wild Tiger) and Barnaby back-to-back in their hero suits with their faces exposed.

I was very happy to be chosen to perform the ending theme song for the second cour of Tiger and Bunny 2! I hope my song will express the deep bonds between the characters. My song is also about the will to move forward while in the midst of sorrow and resentment, in other words to never give up. I hope fans of the anime will be able to relate to the song and that it will express the feelings found in part two of Tiger and Bunny 2.

What is Tiger and Bunny 2 about?

The story is set in a world where super-powered beings known as NEXT exist and this reality has spawned heroes and villains. Some of the heroes are for hire and wear sponsor logos while fighting 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 parallel Kotestu and Barnaby in the way they acted in Season 1 with their conflicting personalities and reluctance to team up together as heroes. The main threat in Season 2 was the two villains en route to Sternbild – Fugan and Mugan. In the first episodes, a flashforward showed a cornered Barnaby. On their way to Sternbild, Fugan and Mugan are shown defeating heroes across the globe.

With Fugan and Mugan’s defeat, however, what will the new threat in Part 2 be? Fans are speculating that He Is Thomas may end up becoming a villain due to certain hints that have been dropped throughout the show. It’s possible the other heroes will be forced to fight him at some point in the future.

Thomas acted more like an anti-hero throughout Season 2, operating in a gray area, rather than as an actual hero. Also, after the couple betrayed Thomas and he decided vehemently that he would never trust others again – it seems like there must have been a reason to set this up. It will be intriguing to see what they have planned for Thomas in Part 2. Will Thomas remain a hero? Or will he turn into a villain?
