I didn't have high hopes for this show based on the title, boy was I proven wrong, a very enjoyable show indeed.

An amazing show. I don't have a very strong comic book background- so its interesting how some of the - such as the intensity of the characters- or the pacing- especially towards the end - differ in almost a mirror way for me.

I'm the same in that I started with American superhero comics as a kid and as my tastes have evolved, I have become more interested in anime and manga as they have a tendency to be a bit more "adult". Dubbing versus subtitles to me as always been a very tricky proposition. In the beginning, all I watched were dubbed stuff but there are a number of series which the dubbing has fallen flat and I tend to prefer seeing the stuff in subtitles these days. I found Tiger & Bunny to be a pretty good show with an interesting take on superheroes. If superheroes were real; I have expect that they would have reality TV shows based on them too and walk around in total advertising slogans like the NASCAR racers. The creators weren't afraid to tell a story with a definite beginning, middle, and ending without dragging stuff out. One thing I hate for some of these anime series is the "filler" seasons or episodes as they take the series in some very weird directions sometimes like in Naruto or Bleach.

Wild Tiger was about the most interesting guy on the show and the most heroic. He doesn't care about points or popularity or if he gets yelled at for causing property damage as long as the innocents were protected. I liked how over the season, the other heroes began to idolize and admire him as well. Yet, he was also the most human; agonizing over his relationship with his daughter and his problems with his powers and his partnership with Barnaby.

About the only real criticism that I have is that was over all too soon. I'm hopeful that if they do come with a sequel series that they come up with a decent storyline as well without ruining it.

The show was a pleasant surprise. Sure it wasn't the best show ever but it was very good. I am looking forward to a second season.

Btw Wild Tiger ftw XD

I really enjoyed the show alot - it was great throughout. I personally didn't enjoy the ending but the show was strong leading up to that point. And some fan-tastic voice work by Hiroaki Hirata as Tiger :)

Wild Tiger was the Captain America of the show. All I could say about the show is that I really enjoyed the show and Wild Tiger is the effing man! :)
