A lot of announcement came out of Tiger & Bunny's event, Tiger & Bunny the Movie -The Rising- Super Prelude that happened on Saturday, 12th in Japan. As a part of the announcement, the new list of corporate sponsors of the heroes was revealed and it shocked some fans. Many may remember that Rock Bison was mostly referred to as "Gyukaku-san" because of his first corporate sponsor, Japanese Yakiniku restaurant chain, Gyukaku, but it will be different as he gained new sponsor! The Rising is due at the theaters on February 8th, 2014 in Japan.

Rock Bison and Gyukaku restaurant had one of the most productiove relationship out of the series as the restaurant did a collaboration event with a special menu, completed with Rock Bison ice cream dessert.
To fans surprise, Rock Bison now has a new sponsor, still beef related, but it's Sukiya, a Japanese beef bowl chain. Are we calling him "Gyudon-san" now? The movie official site updated the new image of the hero with the new sponsor, Sukiya and instant noodle, Futomen Doudou.
