Tiger & Bunny Set 2 (BD)
Hailed as the heroes who saved Stern Bild, Kotetsu and Barnaby face a volley of media attention that includes their learning how to dance! Then, Kotetsu deals with his conflicted feelings about continuing as Wild Tiger and visits his hometown to spend time with his family.

As the rambunctious sci-fi adventure-comedy Tiger & Bunny (2011) continues, crime-fighting heroes Kotetsu "Wild Tiger" Kaburagi and Barnaby "Bunny" Brooks Jr. have settled into a comfortable and effective partnership. They've become so popular with fans, they appear on talk shows, dub voices for anime characters, and pose for a swimsuit calendar. But Kotetsu faces a daunting series of interlocking crises. The "Next" powers that enable him to function as a superhero seem to be fading with age; his daughter Kaede, who has begun to manifest powers of her own, resents her father's prolonged absence at a job he keeps hidden. His mother, who looks after Kaede, and his older brother, who runs the family liquor store, lose patience with him. The murder of his parents continues to haunt Barnaby, and the solution to that crime--which brought the first half of the series to a close--unravels, leaving major questions unresolved. Director Keiichi Satou and his crew pump up the visuals as the story takes a more dramatic turn, skillfully introducing rapid cutting, brilliant colors, and snazzy CG effects: many big-budget Hollywood features can't match these high-energy fights and chases. Like all good heroes, Kotetsu and Barnaby come through in the nick of time, but Satou keeps the audience wondering whether they'll make it or not. Although Tiger & Bunny only ran for one season, the characters proved so popular, they returned in the feature The Beginning (2012), and a sequel, The Rising, is slated for release in fall 2013. That's good news. (Rated TV 14: violence, violence against women, ethnic and sexual stereotypes, brief nudity, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

The second half of Tiger & Bunny is where I really came to love this show. The first half is fun, but the second half is great. The storyline is much more exciting and smoother (no side stories to break it up). Anyone who was annoyed by Tiger in the first season will appreciate his character growth in the second half.
The story wraps up nicely, though leaving a little wiggle room for a sequel (which I hope for, but haven't heard anything about). There are two Tiger & Bunny movies. The first one is a retelling of the series (probably the first half), and the second one comes out Fall 2013. The first movie will be available streaming on Neon Ally and will probably get a DVD release eventually.
the mysterious Lunatic rears his head again, we learn more of his past and what made him the way he is. tiger has developments with his life and powers, Barnaby has run into new leads with regards to his parents, their work and deaths. blue rose begins to have confliction within her heart.
in this set of the hit anime "tiger & bunny" we will see new nexts, and many plot twists that we thought solved in the set 1. In my opinion its just has good as the set 1, and i hope for set 3 soon. the overall happenings of this set are a series of plot twists revolving around our heros, that seem to slap the view in the face, who thought they had figured out and solved the plot. all i can say is pay attention to detail, many of the people save in set 1 appear in the background and dont show up in the plot(just thought you should know), be watchful and aware and dont disappear, stay tuned for the next in the series set 3

As for the series, I highly recommend it! I think of it as Japan's take on Western superhero tropes; it maintains a fairly idealistic tone but that doesn't take away from the drama or tension in the show. The cast is very likeable and even if it plays all the typical superhero tropes straight, it doesn't feel like it's unoriginal or boring. If you're looking for a new show to try out, go out and get Tiger & Bunny!
