Announcer: Rock Bison hasn't been at his best this season.

Robber: Move it.
Agnes: He ran into the monorail station, didn't he.
Cain: Camera A can follow him on the station's prem...
Announcer: This has become a serious situation!
Announcer: I have just received some information.
Announcer: The robber has hijacked a monorail!
Cain: What should we do? If we handle this poorly...
Agnes: Do you want to spoil my show?!
Mary: Over there.
Announcer: Uh oh, will they be alright?!
Announcer: Against such a dangerous setting,
Announcer: The Crusher of Justice, Wild Tiger, has made his entrance.
Crowd: He said Tiger, didn't he?
Crowd: He's been around for a while.
Crowd: Hasn't he been on the decline?
Agnes: Now then,
Agnes: Go to commercial!
Agnes: Tiger, can you hear me?
Agnes: After we return from a 30-second commercial break, it's go time.
Tiger: Haah? Commercial break?!
Agnes: That's right.
Tiger: At a time like this, I can't just wait for something like a commercial!
Agnes: Wait a second!! Listen to what I'm saying!!
Agnes: This way will rouse up the crowd, you know!
Tiger: Like I care about that.
Tiger: We heroes
Tiger: Are fine as long as we can protect the peace!!
Tiger: Wild roar!!
Agnes: Keep going!!
Announcer: Wild Tiger has activated his Hundred Power!!
Announcer: With this, his usual physical abilities are
Announcer: Multiplied 100fold!!
Announcer: Wild Tiger enters through the driver's car!
Tiger: GAH! When did you-
Announcer: However, the robber has moved to an airship!!
Barnaby: What is he doing...
Saito: BARNABY!! HOW'S YOUR SUIT?!!
Barnaby (thoughts): You're too loud.
Barnaby: There aren't any problems.
Saito: OKAY!! GO WHEN YOU GET THE SIGNAL!!
Announcer: The one arriving now is
Announcer: the wind wizard, Sky High!!
Announcer: This season, he's taken an overwhelmingly active role. Mr. Hero finally makes his appearance!!
(left of girl) Sky High!
Tiger: That bastard.
Tiger: Showing up at the best part!
Announcer: Sky High is approaching the culprit, who has entered the airship's control room!!
Announcer: Hmm?! What?
Announcer: Something has exploded from the control room!
Announcer: Aah, what's that!
Announcer: It looked like the culprit fired a rocket launcher!
Announcer: The explosion has sent the airship on a downward incline!!
Announcer: And Sky High puts saving lives as his top priority!!
Announcer: Just what you'd expect from our King of Heroes.
Announcer: The airship is crashing into a building?!
Announcer: The culprit is still riding on the airship.
Robber: Save me, Sky High!
Tiger: I'm Wild Tiger!
Tiger: I've come to sa...
Robber: Er... I'll wait for Sky High...
Tiger: SHUT UP!
Tiger: YOU'LL BE FINE WITH ME!!
Announcer: At this rate, it will crash into a passenger ship.
Rose: What are you doing, fooling around like that.
Announcer: All of you fans, it's what you've been waiting for!
Crowd: There she is!
Agnes: Have Camera B circle around from a low angle!
Rose: My ice may be a little cold,
Rose: But your crime has been put

Crowd: Rooose <3
Crowd: So cute!
Tiger: It's just running away, ain't it.
Tiger: Uooh, watch it.
Announcer: Tiger has made an impressive jump.
Announcer: Time's up!!
Announcer: Wild Tiger can only use his powers for 5 minutes!!
Saito: NOW, BARNABY!!!
Barnaby: What a pain.
--(TL note: He says yare yare, which generally doesn't translate well. I debated leaving it as-is, but I'm not sure how common a phrase it is for readers/viewers. Oh well.)
Barnaby: Is rescuing old people my new job?
--(TL note: I had to use a little leeway here. He says ロートル救助. From what I could find, ロートル means "old", but tends to be used in reference to objects.)
(right of Tiger) UWAAAAAAA
[p035 (2-page spread)]
Tiger: Who the?
Barnaby: You shouldn't overdo it.
Announcer: Who is that?
Announcer: Aaand the mystery man has captured the criminal!
Announcer: Could this be the birth of a new star?!
Announcer: With a mysterious hero, this season comes to a close!
Tiger: There's still the awards ceremony, huh...
Tiger: Oi, you.
Tiger: What company to you belong to?
Tiger: You're a free agent and you stuck your neck out like that? What're you thinking?
Barnaby: It's fine, isn't it? Since I was able to make the arrest.
Tiger: Anyway, don't you know?
Tiger: A hero isn't supposed to remove their mask in front of people!
Tiger: A hero doesn't reveal their identity no matter what...
Barnaby: How old fashioned.
Barnaby: You are behind the times,
Barnaby: Old man.
Mario: Everyone, thank you for waiting!
Mario: It's Hero TV!
Mario: Time for this season's results announcement!
Bison: You're late.
Mario: Now, the announcement of our MVP!
Mario: With a total of 12,730 points is
Mario: The King of Heroes, Sky High!
Sky: Thank you,
Sky: And again, thank you!
Mario: Continuing on,
Mario: We have a congratulatory speech from Albert Maverick,
Mario: Apollon Media's CEO and president of OBC!
Maverick: Before that,
Maverick: There is someone I would like to introduce to you all.
Maverick: Please, come out.
Maverick: Will be protecting the peace of Sternbild,
Maverick: As a new hero.
Maverick: Having just recently received the formal approval of the Department of Justice,
Maverick: This is Barnaby Brooks Jr.
(audience) Kyaaaaa! <3
Maverick: he activates his power,
Maverick: his usual physical abilities are increased 100fold.
Maverick: His time limit of 5 minutes makes it exactly the same power as another hero, but
Maverick: all the same, he is still young!
Maverick: I hope he won't ever become the sort of hero who is carried princess-style.
(left of Barnaby) Heh.
(left of Tiger) Tch.
(beneath both) Wahahahahaha!
Maverick: Well, those with special abilities, called "NEXT", appeared 45 years ago due to a mutation.
Maverick: As yet, there is still no explanation for how they came about.
Tiger: I'm heading home.
Bison: Wait a-
Maverick: Thanks to the work of these NEXT heroes, the peace of this city...
Rose: President! That catchphrase is embarassing!
Man: It's perfectly fine.
Origami: Next time as well, I shall secure a place of visibility to increase the popularity of the company's name.
Man: Good job, I'm counting on you.
Sky: My thanks,
Sky: and again, my thanks!
Maverick: I was right to make you producer of the show.
Agnes: I, Agnes Joubert, will make things even more extreme, and raise the ratings even higher.
Bison: Ko... Tiger!!
Bison: Are you really not coming to the celebration!
Tiger: I don't like those sorts of things.
Bison: Shouldn't you properly greet the higher ups...
Tiger: You can handle my share of that, too.
Fire: Your butt feels nice, like always. <3
Bison: Idi- let go!
Fire: Ufu~ <3
Woman: Your efforts today were truly wonderful, Barnaby-san.
Barnaby: Thank you very much.
Barnaby: It just so happened that when I helped out my troubled hero senpai,
Barnaby: the culprit was there as well.
Man: Tiger's pretty troublesome too, isn't he.
Man: Well, we'll have you here from now on.
Woman: Barnaby-san, can I get a picture?
Lloyds: Your first time in the field was impressive, Barnaby-kun.
Lloyds: You performed perfectly.
Barnaby: Thank you very much.
Lloyds: We of the hero division are proud as well.
Lloyds: From now on, we will expect great things from you.
Lloyds: Now then,
Lloyds: We will be putting you in a partnership.
Lloyds: It is our company's new strategy.
Lloyds: In other words, you will be marketed as part of the hero world's new combo.
Barnaby: Something like that...
Barnaby: I want no part in.
Lloyds: You are already a hero exclusive to Apollon Media.
Lloyds: This plan is a selling point for sponsors. You have to accept it.
Lloyds: Besides, this came as an official notice directly from director Maverick.
Lloyds: You're here by the director's good graces, unless you have a different method to use as a selling point.
Lloyds: It's for your sake.
Barnaby: ......I understand.
Barnaby: Then, who is it? The one who will form a team with me...
Lloyds: Someone who owes you a favor would make a suitable partner.
(bottom right) Next issue, the strongest? combo of Tiger and Bunny is formed!!
