Tiger and Bunny, Spring Season Recommendation

Tiger and Bunny is a show about modern superheroes!

Imagine a world where superheroes get points for taking down criminals and all points go to publicity and acclaim for sponsors like Pepsi and Softbank? That's the world of Tiger and Bunny. 

Kotetsu Kaburagi
The main character Kotetsu Kaburagi is a middle aged superhero who recently gets down on his luck and can't get points. On the verge of being replaced and fired, he's rehired to work as a foil or comedic effect for his younger partner Barnaby. Kotetsu is a good guy though and he takes being a hero seriously as he does it to save people. So there's the can't keep a good man down effect always going down in Bunny and Tiger and I like it.

Younger, good looking Barnaby

Superheroes get their powers from mutations and they are called NEXT. Right now the anime hasn't fully explained NEXT. But people with powers are discriminated against and it seems like the only good thing that can come of it is that they have the potential to be a Hero for a large business company.

I recommend this anime for everyone who loves an underdog story. You'll love Kotetsu's blind faith in people and if you don't, you'll like the awesome superhero action! Or you'll like his more popular partner Barnaby. 

Stay tuned for more Spring Season recs, this season is better than the last!

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
