Hello one and all,
So, today I want to talk about one of the most recent anime I have seen, Tiger & Bunny.
Tiger & Bunny is phenomenal. I mean let me go through this with no spoilers for you all. A western styled superhero story in anime form. Surely, this is the best of both worlds. This anime truly is.
Some incredible artwork, with truly amazing characters that aren’t forgettable. The story primarily follows Wild Tiger, an ageing hero who is known for being a bit of a destructive machine. He always means well for everyone, selfless. He is partnered with a younger hero who has the same power as he, super strength for 5 minutes. This younger hero, Barnaby Brooks Jr (aka Bunny), however, is out for glory and revenge for his parents deaths.
As the story progresses, each of the heroes personal stories are touched and you see their rivalry also extends into a strong friendship. With plenty of bad guys and some amazing blend of a serious superhero story and fun comedy, Tiger & Bunny seems to have the blend perfect. This is a pretty tame anime, however it is absolutely wonderful and will bring in fans of western comics as well as anime/manga fans, too.
It’s not particularly long at 25 episodes, which means you could finish it in a few days if you watched it back to back. Ultimately, you can watch the prequel to the series which is a feature length film (a spectacular one, at that) and this gives you a great start into the series. Now, maybe in future I will have to consider cosplaying Origami Cyclone… Maybe.
I give this series 5 out of 5! Top marks for the first review, can’t be bad, no?
