Tiger & Bunny 2 Part 2 release date on Netflix worldwide is October 7, 2022.
On September 30, 2022, the staff of Masafumi Nishida’s Tiger & Bunny released a trailer for Tiger & Bunny 2 episodes 14 to 25. The trailer gives us our first look at a new villain, Gregory Sunshine, who decides to join Ouroboros . The trailer also includes the final theme song of the anime “Pilot” by Taichi Mukai.
You can watch the trailer on the official Netflix Anime YouTube channel here:
The trailer begins with Lunatic causing trouble for our heroes once again. Then we get our first look at a new villain, Gregory Sunshine, holding up a smartphone and filming something. Maybe he realized Lunatic’s true identity? Tiger seems pleased with the hero teams’ performance, but apparently there is a “whistleblower” in their midst.
The trailer immediately stars Barnaby’s childhood friend and rival Mattia, so he could be the one behind this new predicament the heroes will find themselves in. What are Mattia’s real intentions? Now that Gregory Sunshine has been injected with the NEXT strength-enhancing drug Mattia has developed, what will happen to him? Gregory Sunshine appears to be joining Ouroboros, but we don’t know why still. Although by the end of the trailer, Gregory seems content with the havoc he wreaks on Constellation City at the end.
Taichi Mukai’s song “Pilot” embodies fighting spirit
Taichi Mukai is a Japanese singer, songwriter and model from Fukuoka. Mukai was previously a member of the funk band Modio. Later in 2017 he sighed with Miya Terrace as a solo artist and released his debut studio album titled “Blue”. Mukai has collaborated with various talented artists such as Sik-K, Joven, M-Flo and Minmi.
His new single “Pilot”, which will be featured in the latest installment in the Tiger & Bunny franchise, seems to fit the hero anime perfectly as it emits a motivating “Let’s do this!” vibrations. Pilot will be distributed on Netflix from October 7, 2022 and will be released on October 5, 2022.
Mukai explained the message in his song as follows: “There may be a destiny that by and large cannot be resisted, but let’s control (steer) our own destiny as a pilot as much as possible.” Mukai loves anime and relates incorporated the common themes of “strong bonds” and “powerful emotions” into his songs. He sings about the power of moving forward amidst sadness and anger.
Mukai is also known for his song “Reset” which is the first ending theme for the TV anime Kaze ga Takumi, the first (second season) ending theme song “Michi” for the anime Kaze ga Takumi, the Opening theme song ” Bravest” for anime Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken.
The opening theme song of the anime Kaleido pride fiesta is performed by UNION SQUARE GARDEN.
The dark legacy of Ouroboros lives on
Ouroboros is a large and mysterious terrorist organization in Constellation City. Years ago, Maverick struck a deal with the organization to bring villains to Hero TV in exchange for Emily Brooks and Barnaby Brooks’ technology. Kriem later implied that Ouroboros is larger than anyone believes and implied that it has infiltrated the ruling government of Constellation. The way to identify an Ouroboros member continues to be the Ouroboros tattoo of a snake eating its own tail, with a spade for an eye and a sword running through its body. Nicolai Brahe had an Ouroboros tattoo on his right hand.
Gregory Sunshine finished off Fugan and Mugan at the end of Tiger & Bunny Season 2 and shot Nicolai Brahe multiple times in the chest. Gregory escaped along with the NEXT booster drug developed by Mattia. Will he run out of drugs and have to ask Mattia for more?
Gregory’s ability is to cause other NEXT’s powers to spiral out of control. How will our favorite hero duo, Tiger and Barnaby, fight this new threat? Gregory must touch his target for his power to work. Hopefully our heroes will quickly realize this as they continue to fight crime on live television while sporting their sponsor logos.
