Citizens of Sternbild, the time to experience Hero TV at your own leisure has arrived, because the Wild Tiger and Barnaby are ready to occupy your shelf space! Under the watchful eye of Viz Media, Tiger and Bunny are taking their battle to DVD and Blu-ray on February 19th -- hey, that's next week.
Viz plans to release Tiger & Bunny's first set as a two disk set that includes the first thirteen episodes with a dual audio that can tap into the Hundred Power! However, the superior Blu-ray set will come with an extra surprise that will make you don your superhero costume. Not only are you getting the typical production art and previews, but you are also receiving a segment that covers the making of Tiger & Bunny -- yup, the Blu-ray wins the most points.
The first Tiger & Bunny set will cost you US $44.82 /CAN $43.24 for the DVD version, and the Blu-ray set will be priced at US $54.97/CAN $66.15, but Viz is also giving you a chance to enter a super contest.
In order to obtain the proper prerequisites to enter, one must watch Viz's special screening of the first dubbed episode of Tiger & Bunny on YouTube. Sure, you could skip to the credits to find out, but that would be considered an act of villainy on your own behalf. As for the prizes, you could win an 16GB iPad Mini, or you could win the first Tiger & Bunny Blu-ray set -- hint: just go for the Blu-ray.
Okay, I will admit that I didn't find Tiger & Bunny to be a great series, since I felt that the second half took a while to smash into the major twists that threw me out of my seat. But I do applause Viz for giving Tiger & Bunny the dynamic entrance that it deserves, since the Mystery Men-like take on its superhero elements has a huge chance of winning over many North American fans.
Before I forget, you have until March 5th to try your luck at both prizes, so make sure that you enter with Good Luck activated.
