    The concept of Tiger and Bunny is so good, yet the execution got so bad. Once the series changed focus halfway through the first season I started losing interest until it was gone.

    I would probably watch a spinoff series with Lunatic though.

    This was the most of Tiger & Bunny that I have heard, and I still don't plan to watch it. Doesn't peak my interest.

    Metropolis was a strange movie.

    Still haven't seen Redline but I will at some point.

    I was hoping for more than a picture of Stan. Was bummed out about that.

    Good to see some consistent video content though Tom.

    Sam, that is one of the coolest t-shirts I've ever seen, I want one.

    As for Tiger & Bunny, I'm mildly interested, so I may check it out sometime. I have a great love for western superhero cartoons, especially all the "DC Animated Universe" cartoons I watched as I grew up. More recently I've really enjoyed Young Justice, which is like a cross between the DCAU cartoons and Teen Titans -- a lot of the (relative) seriousness of the DCAU cartoons, with some of the whimsy and teen-angst of Teen Titans.

    I think a dub of Tiger & Bunny would do pretty well on television, it would probably suit Toonami pretty well, or maybe even channels like Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon, depending on how kid-friendly the show is. I don't think it's the "Next Big Thing" though, but who knows.

    The use of CGI in anime doesn't bother me much, I think it worked fairly well in both Highschool of the Dead and Infinite Stratos, but when there's 2D and 3D working in tandem there will always be a visual difference between the two so, to an extent, the transition from one style to the other is always a little jarring. What I'd actually like to see is more shows rendered entirely in CGI, when it's done well it's gorgeous, but I understand how that can be pretty costly to do.

    @sotyfan16: Hopefully we'll get more Stan Lee in person in the show for you :) Though that man is everywhere now even HE needs a reason to come on an anime show...HEROMAN perhaps?

    @Daniel_Newton: It was available here for a period of time but since has sold out, there's still cool S to be had though: http://meatbun.us

    @samweller999:

    Heroman was alright. But as you can see, it hasn't been licensed. I'd more like for you guys to talk to him about Ultimo and if there could be a possible anime adaptation. A fun manga I suggest you guys check out.

    Tiger and Bunny didn't have enough dark and taking serious the implications of super heros mixing with capitalism and the problems that would create for me. It also had to much of the western superhero influence which was somewhat what I went to anime to get away from.

    Redline though...may have to check that one out.

    I could see Tiger and Bunny being popular but I don't think it will be a huge hit like Cowboy Bebop. It lacks a lot of the cool factor factor that Bebop had. It's entertaining for sure, but I didn't see anything stand out about it.
