Tiger & Bunny Set 1
Stern Bild City is a thriving metropolis where superheroes called “NEXTs” protect the streets, sponsors pull the strings, and a hugely popular show called Hero TV captures all of it. Veteran hero Kotetsu Kaburagi (AKA Wild Tiger) and hotheaded new hero Barnaby Brooks, Jr. (nicknamed Bunny by his friends) are forced to team up not only to protect Stern Bild City, but to earn as many points on Hero TV as possible. Joined by a diverse cast of heroes, all with different powers and answering to their own corporate sponsors, Tiger and Bunny must find a way to work together, uncover the secret of the “Ouroboros,” and earn enough points to become this year’s “King of Heroes.”]]>

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. The series ends really well though, so movies aren't necessary to finish the story.
This is the sort of show that can be enjoyed by people of all ages with all tastes. Do you like heroes? Bad guys getting their butts kicked? Comedy? Mystery? Tiger & Bunny has it all and much more! So go ahead and give it a shot :)
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. And yes from and advertising point of view people DO judge a book by its cover (Honestly I don't know why the original Japanese packaging wasn't kept since the title is in english anyway.)
One other con is I wish bonus material was added and I'm not talking about the digital features. If anyone researched the European and Japanese releases there were goodies included in theirs. Just saying.
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
