Here are the highlights from Hero Radio Broadcast #19 with Masakazu “Banikazu” Morita and Hiroaki “Ippun Ojisan” Hirata (celebrating his birthday. Both seem to be in character today) c/o Iwashi. >XD
Hero Radio #19
Banikazu-san : Hi! I am Barnaby, the member of T&B who puts bincho charcoal in his boots as soon as I get home.
Ippun Ojisan : Hello! I am Hirata, the member of T&B who can’t differentiate Bunny-chan from Morita-kun recently.
Banikazu-san : Huh? You can’t?
Ippun Ojisan : I was able to do it until last week.
Banikazu-san : We look completely different.
Ippun Ojisan : When you wear glasses, you look just like Bunny!
Banikazu-san : August 7 is Hirata-san’s birthday. Please open the box!
Ippun Ojisan : Wow! Birthday cake!
Banikazu-san : Happy Birthday!
Ippun Ojisan : Thank you very much! …though the script that’s written on it…
Banikazu-san : What are you saying? This is a wonderful surprise!
Ippun Ojisan : Are you testing my acting skills?
Banikazu-san : A staff member was embarrassed to order a cake for “Ippun Ojisan”. So the chocolate plate says “Happy Birthday Hirata-san”.
Ippun Ojisan : Even the staff thinks so… Of course, I’m embarrassed, too!
Banikazu-san : What does Ippun Ojisan want to do from now on?
Ippun Ojisan : I’m already 49 years old. I should be a grownup…I want to stay in good health. The rehearsal (T＆B The Live) reached the most interesting part. I have to learn my part…
Banikazu-san : Haven’t you learned it yet?!
Memories of HERO/Wild Tiger
Banikazu-san : …From HN I want Kotetsu to say “Take it easy”
Ippun Ojisan : Take it easy!
“I like the scenes in which Kotetsu drinks with someone. (Antonio, Nathan, Muramasa…)
Burnaby and Kotetsu got drunk in the episode which they looked after the mayor’s baby.”
Ippun Ojisan : We were totally wasted in that episode.
Banikazu-san : It was the first time in my life that my hair was a fright…
Ippun Ojisan : What do you drink usually? Bunny-chan?
Banikazu-san : Me? …Red wine, champagne…(in Baninglish)
Ippun Ojisan : Wine? Champagne! (he imitated Baninglish with a laugh)
Banikazu-san : I heared Morita-san said he liked awamori (Japanese distilled spirit) rocks.
Ippun Ojisan : I feel like a drink!
HN Iuki(?) mentioned the episode that Kotetsu returned to Oriental Town.
“Kotetsu was trying to help Kaede though he wasn’t able to use his power. He was so cool!”
Ippun Ojisan : At that time, I was not Ippun Ojisan(One minute old man) but Gofun Ojisan (five minutes Old man)!
Banikazu-san : The story of Oriental Town was very good!
Ippun Ojisan : Kotetsu likes Kaki-no-tane (small spicy rice crackers)?
Banikazu-san : Is that so?
Ippun Ojisan : My bro should have given better snacks to me. Though I returned to the hometown after a long interval…
Banikazu-san : Moreover, he made Kotetsu pay.
Ippun Ojisan : My bro was stingy!
Banikazu-san : T＆B fans seem to like that episode so much. Morita-san said that he almost cried when he heard the rehearsal of the scene. So he went out of the recording room before the recording started.
King of Something
Who is the NEXT Kotetsu never wants Kaede to marry?
Banikazu-san : Hirata-san, who do you think is it?
Ippun Ojisan : I don’t want to give her to anyone!
#3 Maverick 11,3%
Banikazu-san : I agree with it.
Ippun Ojisan : He’s older than Kotetsu, isn’t he? I wonder how I feel that I’m called “father” by an older man…
#2 Rock Bison 15,1%
Ippun Ojisan : He’s a nice guy. He says whatever is on his mind. I think he’s kind too women. BUT I”LL NEVER GIVE HER TO HIM!
#1 Barnaby Brooks Jr. 51,0%!
Banikazu-san : Why me!?
Ippun Ojisan : Because of jealousy?
Banikazu-san : I’m shocked!!…well, we’ll hear the opinion from a citizen of Sternbild.
Ippun Ojisan : Don’t cry!
“I think he doesn’t want to be called father by his buddy.”
Banikazu-san : I have said, “Let’s go, old man” How is “Let’s go, father”? I call him father not “Kotetsu-san”?
#4 Every NEXTs 5,7%,
#5 Origami Cyclone
Banikazu-san : Origami-senpai is a nice person.
HN Mary: “I vote Raionel hork.”
Ippun Ojisan : He should have fixed his scooter. I won’t give her to such a man.
Banikazu-san : Is that the problem?
Hero Radio still wants answers. “Who is the NEXT when he/she smiles at a baby, the baby starts crying?”
Ippun Ojisan : I expect it will be Ozaki P.
Banikazu-san : Is he a NEXT?!
Ippun Ojisan : Not a baby, but we will be close to tears because of him…
New theme “Who is the NEXT who can’t cook at all?”
Banikazu-san : I think it’s Origami-senpai.
Ippun Ojisan : Blue Rose and Dragon Kid is young, so they may be interested in other things. I suppose that “火吐き娘 fire-breathing girl” can cook anything.
Banikazu-san : “fire-breathing girl”! Fire-san (Fire Emblem)? The problem is after you eat the dishes he made…
Tiger & Bunny Special Edition Side Bunny and Side Tiger will be released.
Side Bunny : December 21, 2012, Side Tiger January 29, 2013
Ise Mariya(Dragon Kid) will be a guest on August 12 and 19.
Banikazu-san : I still can’t get over it… I hate the number “51”.
Ippun Ojisan : When I send an e-mail to Morita-kun, I’ll add “51” to it.
Banikazu-san : We will prepare a birthday cake and wait for you next year.
Ippun Ojisan : On the hot summer day? Sure!
Pash! Magazine did an interview with Hirata Hiroaki (Kotetsu) and Morita Masakazu (Barnaby) discussing their impressions of the movie production. Translations from 2chan anon:
>Please tell us your impressions now that the recording process is over.
>M: The movie tells the tale of the…
Kotetsu and Barnaby with their sexy, silky voices giving instructions and promising to protect you in case of a typhoon. It’s real, looped for a minute, so you don’t have to.
DAT SEE YA~
