    Well this was pretty much expected, but it's nice to see Viz is getting the jump on it pretty quickly. Hopefully the physical release will be pretty quick as well.

        That was expected. I certainly want to see it come out on DVD/BD fast. I'm thinking that this film is probably going to be a prequel that goes back to the time when Kotetsu becomes Wild Tiger, or something like that.

          Too bad I don't live anywhere near there, but the effort Viz is putting into this title makes me hopeful for a quick turnaround time for the US Blu-ray. Then again, you'd think the same would be true for the series, but no such luck...

            I would love to see a broader theatrical distribution later on in 2013. As for home video release, I will think about that more when everything for the TV series gets released.

              ANN's article about the showing seems to confirm what I was vaguely remembering: the first T&B movie is just a recap of the early part of the series, and not a prequel. I think that T&B is sharing a path with Madoka Magica, with two recap movies, and then a movie with an original story. T&B has a bit more to recap than Madoka, but there's also a lot more that can be cut without losing the main point.
