Tiger and Bunny

The series takes place in a fictional city called Sternbild City, where 45 years before, individuals with superpowers called "Next" started appearing and some of them became superheroes. Each of city's most famous superheroes work for a sponsor company and their uniforms also contain advertising, most of them for real-life companies. Their heroic activity is broadcasted on the popular television show "Hero TV", where they accumulate points by each feat accomplished and the best ranked hero of the season is crowned "King of Heroes". The story mainly focuses on veteran hero Kotetsu T. Kaburagi aka Wild Tiger who is assigned with a new partner, a young man named Barnaby Brooks Jr. While Kotetsu prefers to work alone, Barnaby shows him a different perspective on being a hero.

Reviews

Michael Eh?

Mystery Men meets Reality TV meets reality? No matter how cliche this show is, it's an definitely fresh look at the superhero genre. These heros are more likely to run from a real fight than finish it. They are as unpolished as they can be. It is actually refreshing. A better watch than X-Men and by far, the best animation I've seen in years.

Not bad.

I think the concept of sponsoring super heroes is a very bad idea. However, the series is good for laughs though.

corporate sponsorship is the only thing that would keep these guys in long undies. liability suits eat 'em alive otherwise. anyways, its 'super'.
