Just in time to finish watching 'Tiger and Bunny' television series before Golden Village screened the movie coming 7th October 2012 in Singapore. Another anime recommended by Guy 'A'. TnB in short was rumoured as an anime project that used a small remaining budget after the lion's share was set aside for Gundam project. It was a probably the reason why the anime was aired in Japan during the night (off peak hours).
A refreshing anime concept based on superheroes whereby human with extraordinary ability known as NEXT were introduced as superheroes after they had been sponsored by companies like Pepsi, Bandai, Calbee, etc... Each crime fighting superhero would be given points of his or her arrest and number of person rescued. The points accumulated would determine their ranking.
So why is the anime titled 'Tiger and Bunny'? Cos they are the first tag team heroes in the league of Sternbild City, made up of 'Wild Tiger' and 'Barnaby Brook'. Barnaby also sounded like 'Bunny', besides that his suit with two spikes on the head looks kind of "bunny ears".
The anime started in a spoof approach mainly on the clumsy 'Wild Tiger', destroy properties as he made futile superhero acts. There were series of side missions which eventually lead to a serious plot of major crime syndicate. Kind of like Hong Kong Police television serial style in anime.
Sternbild City is home to people called "Next," who use their special abilities to protect the people as superheroes. These heroes solve cases and save lives so they can wear sponsor logos or acquire "hero points." Their activities are documented on the popular program "Hero TV," which picks the "King of Heroes" in a yearly ranking. The veteran hero Wild Tiger has always preferred to work alone, but now he's been assigned the rookie Barnaby Brooks Jr., who has a different perspective on being a superhero.
