Review: Tiger & Bunny

Plot Summary: Sternbild City is home to people called “Next,” who use their special abilities to protect the people as superheroes. These heroes solve cases and save lives so they can wear sponsor logos or acquire “hero points.” Their activities are documented on the popular program “Hero TV,” which picks the “King of Heroes” in a yearly ranking. The veteran hero Wild Tiger has always preferred to work alone, but now he’s been assigned the rookie Barnaby Brooks Jr., who has a different perspective on being a superhero.

I always do enjoy these types of anime, short and sweet, but it keeps getting a little bit more complex and they always leave a bit of mystery which is very good. Humans start developing Powers which they call NEXT and each power is different from the other, and the best of them become Heros protecting the city and each Hero is backed by a Sponsor which is a very capitalistic idea. The action is there right away and you hit the ground running meeting all the characters, and this anime revolves around two of them, Tiger & Barnaby or Bunny as they call him. Then the story starts digging deeper and you get connected with all the characters and how things develop with the story line. The best part is reaching the end but then whats great is that just enough is left for another season and more of the story to dig deeper and darker into what was waiting in the background. Basically an anime worth watching and very entertaining.
