Product Description

Tiger & Bunny Set 1 (Blu-ray)



The rambunctious adventure-comedy Tiger & Bunny (2011) takes place in the future, when individuals called "Nexts" use their supernatural abilities to become costumed Heroes, protecting the people of Stern Bild City. Their adventures appear live on Hero TV, and a point system brings one lucky contestant the title of King of Heroes. Kotetsu Kaburagi, a.k.a. "Wild Tiger," has been a Hero for 10 years. He's a bit of a klutz who racks up staggering insurance claims when he inadvertently destroys things. The other Heroes regard Kotetsu with a bemused affection, but ratings-obsessed director Agnes never tires of berating him. To boost ratings, the corporate sponsors pair Kotetsu with handsome, charming, and instantly popular rookie Barnaby Brooks Jr. Not surprisingly, they get on each other's nerves. Barnaby dismisses Kotetsu as over the hill; Kotetsu annoys Barnaby by addressing him as "Bunny." The mismatched pair are finally learning to work as a team when Ourobouros, a mysterious crime syndicate responsible for the murder of Barnaby's parents, attacks Stern Bild City. Tiger & Bunny will appeal to fans of Fullmetal Panic and Generator Gawl. The filmmakers provide plenty of mecha battles and weird villains, but they leaven the action with a generous dollop of slapstick comedy. Barnaby embodies the handsome young hero of adventure anime, but his single-minded quest to avenge his parents gives him more depth. In his outsize cap, outré tie, and two-tone shoes, Kotetsu may remind some otaku of Dee in Fake. But it's a mistake to underestimate him: Kotetsu is fiercely devoted to the ideal that a real Hero rescues anyone in danger, even a criminal. This first set of the broadcast series makes it clear why the engagingly ill-matched Barnaby and Kotetsu went on to star in two theatrical features. (Rated TV 14: violence, violence against women, ethnic and sexual stereotypes, brief nudity, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

In the future, there is an evolved breed of humans called "Next" with special powers. Sternbild City has found a good way to put these powers to use - "Hero TV" a real reality tv show where superheroes are sponsored and ranked, with a "King of Heroes", a title that goes to the hero with the most points each year. Wild Tiger is a hero on the show whose popularity is on the decline, while his destruction bill is on the rise. Given one last chance at heroism, Wild Tiger is forced to partner up with the newest hero to join the show, the young and charismatic Barnaby Brooks Jr.

This show was so much fun. The concept behind Hero TV, while flawed, is brilliant. I've always wondered about who covers the bill when some superhero destroys millions of dollars worth of property. I am probably weird. But it is still a fun concept even if you don't wonder about that sort of thing. The characters were all distinct and the relationships very well developed. It was fun having a main character not in high school. Wild Tiger definitely embraces his inner child, but he can show maturity at times :) Actually, his development is one of the best parts of the show.
The plot moves along at a brisk place, sometimes slowing to flesh out the other heroes. The other heroes surprised me a little - they were interesting characters. I kind of expected them to be background characters, but they are more developed then that.

I watched this series on Viz and have been eagerly waiting for the DVDs to rewatch the series with my sisters and/or friends (or by myself, I'm not picky :). This set contains episodes 1-13, out of 25 total. There are a couple of movies, but I don't know if they will be released stateside or not.

Been waiting for the official release for this in America! Tiger & Bunny is truly one of the best shows ever created. It's highly original for an anime and anyone who's a fan of animation should watch it. The storytelling is fast pace and westernized while still maintaining the feel we all love in anime. Characters are diverse and actually look different from eachother. The art direction is practically flawless, and the japanese voice cast is top notch. Haven't given the english cast a shot but for those of you who are looking for it it's on there too. The blu ray has great updates in the some of the scenes that were lacking in the original release (Which you can see for free on Hulu) and everything is very crisp and bright. Overall a pretty good buy.

Cons? (Not related to Amazon or the series itself)
Well my main complaint is the packaging. While this seems like a total nitpick it's important to consider if North America wants to do a better job of marketing companies really need to take into account how well their advertising is. Honestly the dvd cover looks like something Viz gave to a kid who just discovered photoshop in high school. Or it looks like a bootleg I could pick up in New York from those guys selling dvds on the street. (i.e what is with the type and star background?!) Not the most alluring thing, especially for the price you pay. Yes ideally it is about the content inside which is actually great but for the money paid I would think Viz would've put a little more thought into how the case aws presented and marketed. Also, inside you literally open up the case and the dvds are right there. No pamphlet, no nothing. Just a little paper ad on Viz's neon alley. The package is the first thing a buyer is going to see when picking something up.

this is a great series, i have long awaited its release here in the USA. the series revolves around heros fighting to protect people. these heros are NEXTS(similar concept done by the armored core video games), anyway these nexts have special abilities but only become a "hero" when they have a sponsor, our hero tiger is long in the tooth apparently and down on his luck until a new sponsor takes him and partners him with Barnaby whom he calls "BUNNY" due to the pink points on his suit. they quickly become the only duo team to fight evil and uphold justice and this makes for great ratings (as the heros are watched on a tv show by the populous and win points according to deed, most heros have different abilities but tiger & bunny have the same ability weirdly enough.

this english dub was first vied on viz's new stream "NEON ALLEY" along with others such as blue exorcist, inuyasha, fairy tail, ect

this blue ray set 1 has roughly 12 episodes and is in high quality, while haveing 2 disks, so i predict at least 9 ep on disk 1 and disk 2 is ep 10-12 with special features. this is the common format as done by sentai filmworks and funimation releases.

also please note that like fairy tail this will be released in multiple parts(sets 1-8) and will be available in either dvd or blu ray , i hope we get up to 8 anyway.

look out for this amazing show, it is a fan favorite and if your not sure, watch episode 1 & 2 online to get an idea for the show

In 2011, the anime studio Sunrise, best known for its anime series for "Mobile Suit Gundam", "Cowboy Bebop", "Dirty Pair", "City Hunter" to name a few, went on to work on anime series that would captivate older viewers but also something unique and different for anime fans.

And the 25- episode TV series "Tiger & Bunny" was created.

Directed by Keiichi Satou ("Saint Seiya the Movie", "Karas", "Asura"), a screenplay by Masafumi Nishida, music by Yoshihiro Ike ("Asura", "Cobra: The Animation", "Dead Leaves"), character designs by Kenji Hayama ("Baccano!", "The Big O", "Casshern Sins", "Getter Robo: Armageddon") and Masaki Yamada ("Ergo Proxy", "Appleseed", "Great Dangaioh"), background art by Kinichi Okubo ("Ex-Driver", "Honey and Clover", "Angel Beats!"), mechanical design by Kenji Andou ("Origini ~Spirits of the Past~", "Votoms Finder"), Yoshikazu Kon ("Gurren Lagann", "Shangri-La", "Mobil Suit Gundam 00″).

The series aired in Japan on April 2011 and also was seen in the U.S. via Hulu and the Anime News Network. And most recently on Viz Media's "Neon Alley".

In Japan, a one-shot manga by Masakazu Katsura ("Video Girl Ai", "DNA2″, "Zetman") was published in "Weekly Shonen Jump" and in Sept. 2012, an animated film was released and a second film currently in production and planned for a fall 2013 release. Also, the anime series has led to a PSP video game released in Sept. 2012 and a second game planned for a March 2013 released.

And in the U.S.
