    A English dubbed script was posted Wednesday on the official Viz T&B Facebook page.

    "Tiger & Bunny...is coming up next, on Toonami."

    Just think, T&B sandwiched between Bleach and DBZ? Oh snap.

    Smells like an L.A. dub.

    I certainly hope they got a studio who'll actually push their actors.

    The only news here is the script. They said six months ago at comic con that they were in the pre-planninf stages of a dub. Apparently everyone got anmnesia after that.

    Sarcasm aside I'm glad to see there's progress. Hope they'll be able to announce some of the cast at Comic Con since it seems they've started the actual dubbing.

    Nice! This is something I've wanted to watch back when it was broadcast in subs but since I am a dub kind of guy I sat back and waited to see if this would get a dubbing and a U.S release, now it looks as if it will. :D

    Who's got the license for this in the U.S again?

    Glad to see Viz pick this up and it getting a US release and dub.

    I fully support this show getting a spot on a new, reinvigorated Toonami block on Cartoon Network. I think a show like Tiger and Bunny would be perfect for a new Toonami block. Plus you got all the toy potential. Bandai Japan already is putting out some awesome Figuarts toys for the show (which is funny since SH Figuarts is one of the sponsors that gets product placement in the series). Plus with the show being set in New York I think the show has a lot of potential to get broad crossover appeal. Get it done CN or my days with you will really be numbered.

    Well I hope they are already dubbing it. I don't want to have to wait another year for a 26 episode show. It should not take 2 years for a 26 episode show to hit US shelves or even US television in this day and age.

    Does anyone know how far along the home video release is in Japan? I don't keep up with those things and I know it's a factor in getting a home video release here.

    I was really hoping for a Fall premiere on Adult Swim (maybe a new Toonami block by then) as late as November. But Spring 2013 seems like a reasonable expectation if Viz gets InuYasha: The Final Act on Adult Swim this year and follows it with T&B when it concludes.

    Well if there is already a dub script I imagine they are casting and/or recording right now. Or about to.

    I really don't like all of this Toonami speculation/fantasy scheduling that's been going on since April 1... but I have to admit that Tiger and Bunny on Toonami would be pretty amazing.

    The japanese producer of the series recently confirmed their almost done with casting for the dub. While I still think people are exaggerating how "long" it's taking for the dub to come out(it's only been a year since the show aired in japan people) the fact that Sunrise seems to be heavily involved in the dub is probably why casting is taking so long. Probably more specific standards.

    I'm really excited to see this show and I'm kind of bummed that it seems to be taking forever to cast for the dub, it'll probably take even longer for them to get the voice actors into the studio to record and then to package and release.....

    I don't know, maybe I'm impatient due to all the praise I've seen for Tiger & Bunny, but darn it all I wan't to own this as soon as humanly possible, lol.

    Now that they are doing a movie, hopefully that will get licensed here later as well. I imagine we will get some more release details at AX in a few months. The Figuarts are coming over here now as well so I recommend people check them out.

    Thanks to the official Tiger & Bunny Facebook page, we have most of our English cast!

    Pretty awesome cast. Looking forward to seeing how the dub fares next year.

    Well, Tiger & Bunny has started airing in Hong Kong for about 5 weeks now. I've only seen the first episode both dubbed (in Cantonese) and subbed. The Cantonese dub turned out pretty good so far. Kinda reminds me of "The Tick" meets (insert random reality show). Looking forward for more episodes.

    I had a good laugh looking at all those sponsor names. Especially on Dragon Kid with the Calbee mention. I snack on Calbee's pizza flavored chips when I can. They're actually pretty tasty!

    Hope this show can get a Toonami pick up some point, I think it has huge breakout potential with the themes and setting.
