[Review] Tiger & Bunny 2, Part 1

It’s nothing short of amazing to me that I’ll be posting back-to-back reviews about anime sequels a decade past their original series, first Thermae Romae, and now Tiger & Bunny. Having first aired in 2011, the franchise gifted us a film in 2014, and now we’re treated to the sequel in 2022. Like the original, we’ll have a 2-cours, 25-episode second season, the first thirteen episodes of which are fully out on Netflix.

This sequel launches us right back into the action where we last left our heroes, only this time around the veterans have a fresh cast of young heroes eager to prove their worth. Opposing them are a mysterious duo of antiheroes seemingly with little purpose other than proving themselves stronger than any other NEXT, as well as a shadow organization Ouroboros.

2011 AniBloggers’ Choice Anime Awards

In participation with Kiddtic’s 2011 ACAA, here are my picks for the past year.  I probably had the most difficulty narrowing down my choices for the current fall season since there are quite a few that vied for my second and third choices.  I’m also going to include an additional Licensor Award since I think it’s a great idea for supporting our local licensing of a medium we all love and hopefully want to share with others.

Summer 2011 Final Thoughts (a.k.a. How the heck did I manage to watch all of these?)

So I’m late crossing the finish line, but at least I finished, right? There were a ton of series to make it through this season, and I wasn’t sure if I’d make it through writing this entry.  But, here we are, and I’m now wading through a rush of newly airing fall anime.

Final thoughts include: Bunny Drop, Tiger & Bunny, NO.6, Sacred Seven, Ikoku Meiro no Croisee, Kamisama no Memochou, Hanasaku Iroha, Natsume Yuujinchou San, Blood-C, Dantalian no Shoka, Ao no Exorcist, Kamisama Dolls, Nekogami Yaoyorozu, Uta no Prince-sama, Baka to Test 2, and Nichijou.  These thoughts are fairly brief, given the large number of anime covered in this season review, and are usually about two paragraphs long.  If I like the show enough, I’ll most likely return to it sometime for a re-watch and write a more detailed review!

Initial Thoughts on Tiger & Bunny, A Channel, Maria†Holic Alive, and Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox

Featuring hero "Fire Emblem," a.k.a. the red Batman with a fondness for men. FIRE!

Tiger & Bunny (Ep. 1)
Well, I wasn’t sure what I would think about this show based off of the very sparse description on pretty much every anime chart I looked out, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable I found this first episode.  Sunrise pairs two interesting ideas: advertisement and superheroes.  Advertisement-wise, they are making use of their sponsors by putting their logos into the anime on specific heroes.  The advertisement idea goes even further in plot and characters, as superheroes are also sponsored by major businesses in the anime and perform all their heroic feats live on television in the very popular show “Hero TV.”
