Previously, I made the first impression of this anime. Indeed this anime is good but why Japan should make this anime to be ranked first in Japan? This anime is a good start from the side of the story, character, action, and etc. But, I just don’t accept the fact that this anime is ranked first.
“Tiger & Bunny,” tells about a futuristic city in New York called Sternbild City. An incident that afflicts a person becomes a force different from a normal human being. These people are known as “NEXT.” They are known for being superheroes who work under a company that starred in several advertisements. Their action will be aired to the public in the city’s popular channel”Hero TV” that accumulates each hero to collect some points. This point comes from fighting crime, helping civilians, catching criminals and so on. Hero with the highest value will become a “King of Heroes” in a season.
One of the veteran heroes named Kotetsu T. Kaburagi (Hiroaki Hirata) a.k.a. Wild Tiger just got a new partner named Barnaby Brooks Jr. (Masakazu Morita) a.k.a. Bunny. They both originally hated each other because often get into trouble. While doing the activity of the superhero, they tried to find out about the murder of Barnaby’s parents. This hating each person transforms them into friends and partners who trust each other.
Tiger & Bunny is a Japanese TV series produced by Sunrise Studio in 2011. Sunrise Studio is known for its popular anime such as Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, Gintama, and Accel World. The anime was originally adapted into a one-shot manga by Masakazu Katsura. The manga published in Weekly Young Jump on August 4, 2011, and made 2 sequel films.
I just wanted to say this anime is good to watch. But, what the fuck are you thinking, Japanese? I’m just surprised to see this anime could be ranked first. This anime is good but not as good as being ranked first. One thing is certain why this anime is ranked Japan one because many are sponsoring it. This anime clearly sponsored world-renowned companies such as SoftBank, PEPSI, BANDAI, Amazon, and others. This company is what makes this anime why is ranked first. I’m so sorry for offending you but this is my own opinion only.
In addition, seiyuu of this anime also looks cool as for example Hiroaki Hirata who also cast the voice of Sanji characters from One Piece. In addition to Hiroaki, Masakazu Morita who filled the voice of Ichigo Kurosaki character from the anime Bleach also looks cool. So, they both can be spelled out the professional seiyuu in this anime. There’s also Nobuhiko Okamoto known by cast some various famous anime such as My Hero Academia, Blue Exorcist, Maid Sama!, and others.
Overall, this anime can be a complete package because with the element of action, mecha, drama, humor, bromance and some overpower is perfect for you to watch. Merging between 2D and 3D art is an original artwork of this anime.
