‘Tiger & Bunny’ had a very interesting article in PASH DeeeP! this month, featuring comments on the series written by two of the series writers, Tomohiro Suzuki and Yuuya Takahashi. Thankyou’s go to Translanon! As per usual. You can read a whole lot more at Sternbild, where the article is beeing updated!
- Kotetsu tends to lower the other people’s opinion of himself so they wouldn’t bother with him (though it seems he’s doing that unconsciously)
- Barnaby is so used to being alone that he’s even incapable of actually feeling lonely anymore; the first deep human relationship that he’s ever bothered to build is the one with Kotetsu
- Barnaby is normally eloquent and quick-thinking, but when it comes to talking about the more personal issues he’s not as self-assured
- Barnaby’s memory has been edited quite extensively; even the memories of his family are affected, though the sense of warmth there is real.
- Even if he regains his real memories someday, nothing can return the lost time and destroyed bonds. Just who can fill this sense of loss for him? (next to a cap of Kotetsu cradling Bunny, jsyk)
- Dragon Kid will probably forever remain a kid at heart; the nuanced, unfair and complex adult world just doesn’t fit her very well
- Nathan is sensitive and understanding, but people like that are also rather easy to wound
- Karina is easily impressionable and can change her opinions rather quickly
- Keith is almost incapable of hurting people, in both speech and conduct
- The scenes with Heroes after they got manipulated by Maverick show how brittle their friendship and trust is; especially telling in Antonio’s case, whom Kotetsu knows since high-school
- the scene about the 2 dollars between Kotetsu and Muramasa was meant to illustrate the difficulties even his own brother has when communicating with him. Since Kotetsu is so dishonest, asking him straight away tends have little effect, so some pointless distractions become necessary to loosen him up.
- Lunatic’s character illustrates how justice is neither absolute, nor necessarily right.
- the scene in ep2 where Kotetsu irritates Barnaby by imitating him is important because it illustrates Kotetsu’s ability to draw the sense of humanity out of him, even though they are practically strangers at that point
- the scene in the restaurant in ep3 (“building-like buildings”) illustrates how avoidant and closed they are when it comes to their real thoughts and feelings. Nevertheless, lock them up together and the truth starts coming out.
- ep9 was very heartwarming and the writing team liked the content very much. The writers came up with enough material for three episodes, but alas.
