Well, I drove eight hours without sleep in order to see this movie, then got to turn around and drive eight hours back in the morning. Such is my devotion to Bunny.
Warning, major spoilers and discussion of plot points. Also, it’s about 90% talking about Barnaby, sorry.
when the movie you’ve never watched is already your favorite movie
Here are the highlights from Hero Radio Broadcast #25. Banikazu-san, your job is in serious jeopardy after you described Ozaki Ouroboros as “thin like a toothpick”. Many thanks, as always, to Iwashi for bringing them to everyone!! <3
Hero Radio #25
Hi, I’m Barnaby, the member of T&B who is going to see T&B The Beginning on the first day. My hair has many cuticles!
Memories of Heroes!
[HN:”I’m interested in how much Kotetsu-san pays for his apartment”]
“I had to get transferred as demanded by my company last year. In the unfamiliar surroundings, I turned on my TV during that restless night then I just happened to watch T&B. On the day when I had difficulty at work, I felt an affinity with Kotetsu who was treated as a useless employee. I was encouraged with his attitude of trying to stay positive and work hard. In today’s world where humanity (humaneness?) tends to be shunned, this was best described in T&B. I think it’s a precious work.”
That’s right. At first, T&B was being made as a message to middle-aged men. The story’s result was “Everyone is a Hero”. So T&B became a song of praise not only for middle-aged men but also for all working people, for all studying people… for all people.
King of Something!
Who is the NEXT who looks like they could go on purpose in front of a cinema playing the ‘TIGER & BUNNY movie - The beginning-’ without their disguise and rejoice on the inside when noticed by a customer?
#3 Barnaby 12,5%
I’m glad… I’m glad I wasn’t #1.
[HR:”Hero is pronounce “ero” in French”]
Oh, Is it really?
“I think it’s Barnaby-san.”
Oh? Do you live in Osaka? (This listener wrote in the Osaka dialect)
“Because Barnaby-san is the only hero who shows everyone his face. Other heroes don’t show their real faces and their names aren’t known. That means it must be Barnaby-san!”
Oh, I see. I’m the only unmasked hero! I always wear glasses. But I’ll wear sunglasses and make my curled hair straight when I go to the cinema.
#2 Ozaki P! 21,9%
[HN:”I can’t accept that I won’t be able to go to Maihama”](T&B The Beginning Warld Premiere will be shown in the Maihama Amphitheater.)
Please watch it on the live viewing…
“I voted for him because I saw Ozaki Ouroboros at The Live. I applauded him too with gratitude at that time. Thank you always for your engineering (producing of the series and all other related projects. I hope you will be active behind the scenes further… I mean it as a compliment!”
It’s perfectly possible! He is thin like a toothpick and wears glasses. And he would wear a hunting cap to attract attention. If you see such a man, please give him a big hand!
#1 Inoue Go! 40,6%
[HN:Misato or Miri]
“It’s Inoue-Go-san! he’s a NEXT who can sweat profusely. He has attended T&B in Namco Nanja Town and The Live. I’m sure he will go to see The Beginning! He will certainly go there sometime a week Sky High-san is included in the weekly hero ranking.”
(The special bonus film shown after the movie will change every week depending on the ranking.)
You made a good guess! I think he will be in Maihama on the first day. Then from the next day, he will go to a cinema once every other week… no! once in every three days….or every day! If you see the man who is sweating and wearing glasses, surely it will be Go-san!
#7 Matthew 3,1%
“I vote Ma-Mi-Mu-Me-Matthew-san! he charmed a lot of women in the Orion Wo Nazoru Sign Language dance video. He may think that he’s in a period of popularity now! So he will go to a cinema.”
“I vote Brian. He’s an exhibitionist.I won’t be surprised if he does such a thing.”
#5 Rock Bison, Origami Cyclone
Next theme is “Who is the NEXT who voted many times for himself/herself for the T&B movie - The beginning- weekly Hero countdown?” Next theme is “Who is the NEXT who has the most grievances against the results of King of Something?” …It’s me!!
Yonetani Yoshitomo( Director of T&B movie - The beginning-) will be the guest on September 23. UNISON SQUARE GARDEN (made “Linear Blue wo Kikinagara” T&B The beginning theme song) will also be guests. Hero Radio wants your messages to them.

Iwashi brings to you the latest highlights from Hero Radio Broadcast #23 with poor Banikazu-san (Masakazu Morita) going solo. Iwashi apologizes for some bits that Morita said in English, and which she did not understand fully. You can listen to the broadcast HERE.
Hero Radio #23
Hi! I am Barnaby, the member of T&B who has never felt pressed to do homework at the end of the summer vacation. (made by HN:Yakumo)
That’s right. It was a custom for me to finish my homework except the diary within ten days from the first day of summer vacation.
Memories of Heroes!
“Good evening, Bunny-chan.”…Bunny-chan?
“In T&B, what impressed me most was the scene that Bunny-chan shouted ‘How dare you bring shame to Wild Tiger’s name?!’ Though his memories about Tiger were rewritten, an unshakable sense of respect for his buddy stayed in his mind. I felt a tightening in my chest. In spite of getting badly punched, Tiger spoke to Bunny-chan desperately, but when he listened to Bunny-chan’s words, he raised his head, then he looked down. My heart bled for him at that time. So I was very glad when Bunny-chan called him ‘Kotetsu-san’.”
My approach to the end of the story was to have an unrestrained emotion. How should I said the lines…Oops, It’s Morita-san! Well…Usually, I speak calmly. But I said the words with emotion without thought at that time.
HN: Fujimaru or Toumaru(?)
“May I ask a serious question? Barnaby-san, do you think that you will stay as a hero when you reach Wild Tiger’s age? “
Ummmm… I would like to be a hero all my life. I’m impressed with his posture that he keeps being a Hero, though he can use his ability only for one minute. Not only him. Fire Emblem-san, Origami-senpai, Blue Rose-san, Pao-Lin, Sky High-san, Rock Bison-san… I knew various heroes. So I think that heroes are necessary for this world. I think that we need hearts that attain justice and love it at all times. It won’t change when I get older. I think that I would like to be a hero as long as possible even if I can use my ability only for 1 minute or 30 seconds. Even if I can not use my ability at all, I want to continue to be a hero.
We make HERO SONG!
Two lyrics are here.I think I can make the two lyrics one song. from HN: MMadoka, HN:Shidoro Modoro.
♪Arrestment, lifesaving, buddy!
When we work together, That’s Two hundred power!
Power, Power, Power! Hero gymnastic, GO NEXT!
“Arrestment, lifesaving, buddy! When we work together, That’s Two hundred power!” is from Madoka, “Power, Power, Power! Hero gymnastic, GO NEXT!” is from Shidoro Modoro. It’s a new method!
Now please listen to one musical track. From TIGER & BUNNY “HERO RADIO” Variety CD Sternbild Station! released on September 26. I♡scream!!! by Otome Club!
Yonetani Yoshitomo(Director of T&B movie - The beginning-) will be a guest on September 23.
Hero Radio wants messages to Yonetani-san and the answers “Who is the NEXT who voted many times for himself/herself for the T&B movie - The beginning- weekly countdown hero?”
I have never done such a thing! Barnaby has never voted for himself! …You got it?
