Tiger & Bunny
is an anime series produced by Sunrise that began airing in 2011. The series
takes place sometime in the future, in the fictional city of Sternbild City, which is modeled after
New York City. People with super powers, called NEXT, train to become Heroes, corporate-sponsored
costumed crusaders that fight crime while appearing and competing on the reality TV series Hero
. The anime series takes much of its inspiration from American comic book tropes.
The two main characters are Kaburagi T. Kotetsu, an older, idealistic hero who truly believes in using
his powers to help people, and Barnaby Brooks Jr., a younger, new hero who possesses the same abilities
as Kotetsu. While working as a Hero, Kotetsu uses the call name "Wild Tiger." Barnaby is the first Hero
to not hide his identity and to instead use his real name. After Kotetsu's contract is taken over by a
new corporation, Kotetsu is unwillingly partnered up with Barnaby in the first Hero partnership. The
two characters do not initially get along, and Kotetsu gives Barnaby the nickname "Bunny," but they
gradually start to trust one another.
The series is a lot of fun with a great blend of action, humor, and drama. It has quickly gained a large
following in Japan and across the world, much to the surprise of Sunrise, who did not anticipate the series'
popularity. (Sunrise failed to print sufficient copies of the limited edition version of the first Japanese
Blu-ray, which retailed for about 2500 yen on Amazon.co.jp, and then ended up selling for 150,000-250,000
yen on Yahoo.co.jp after Japanese stores sold out.) New episodes air in Japan and are simulcast with English
subtitles on Anime News
in Australia, the United Kingdom, and North America several hours after (as well as on
for American viewers).
