  • Blessed with Suck: All the NEXT students Tiger mentors in Episode 8 have varied powers such as hair manipulation, neck stretching, leg stretching, and sweating a lot.

This sounds more like What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway? to me, but I've watched very little of the show. Could someone who has seen the episode decide whether to move the example?

Well, if you think it needs updating, you can try it yourself.

This might sounds like a stupid question, but where exactly does this show take place, the US or Japan?

Hello... I'm a terribly inept troper, but I wrote a story that's listed on the Fanfic Rec page, and I just decided to de-anon and post it to Could someone help switch around the links on the rec page, please? Thank you very much.

This is the new link, so you don't have to go find it.

Tiger and Bunny is set in the year 1978, with a 20 Minutes into the Future feel. How do we approach this in troping? Cross-posting to the Lost and Found in case there's a trope that covers it I don't know about, or this is the wrong venue.

Er, where does it say 1978? Never noticed that in the anime proper?

It's not stated in dialogue, but it's established in various bits of text that appear on-screen. The first episode takes place at the end of the 1977 HeroTV season, which is why Sky High's King of Heroes splash-screen has "1977" on it; likewise, the pins Kotetsu buys for himself and Barnaby later in the series commemorate Christmas 1978 and have "1978" printed on them.

It takes place in NC 1977~1979 (counting the final timeskip). It's simply intended to be an Alternate Universe of our timeline.

Thanks, Starry.

Kind of figured it was an alternate world, what with what we've been able to gather of the political structure and architecture. Though being set in the late 70's would certainly explain Barnaby's hair and Muramasa's minibus.

I guess a quick edit of the Twenty Minutes Into The Future entry would clear this up on the mainpage.

Edited it in! Feel free to make corrections as you see fit.

What happened to the crowner sections? The button links are still on multiple pages of other works and the pages haven't been deleted yet.

Can someone move the Funny, Awesome and Heartwarming pages. They didn't get moved with the main page and I don't know how to do it. could just be the buttons aren't showing on the main page.

Hello brain twin, I guess we'll give it a few days for them to show up, and if not I'll try to flag somebody else down to help.

EDIT: Whelp there you go, they're showing up for me now.

How well does it match the trope?
