Tiger & Bunny is a captivating anime series that focuses on the lives of superheroes in a fictionalized future city called Sternbild City. The anime brings together a unique blend of humor, action, and drama that captures the audience's attention from start to finish. Produced in 2011 by Sunrise, Tiger & Bunny is a popular anime among fans of the superhero genre.

The series revolves around the character of Kotetsu T. Kaburagi (also known as Wild Tiger), a middle-aged superhero who has been fighting crime for over ten years. Kotetsu's powers involve superhuman strength, agility, and speed. However, after years of crime-fighting, he is starting to feel the effects of his age and struggles to keep up with the younger, more agile superheroes.

The story takes a turn when the company that sponsors the superheroes, Hero TV, teams Kotetsu up with a young and enthusiastic hero named Barnaby Brooks Jr. (also known as Bunny). Together, they form the first-ever superhero duo, Tiger & Bunny, and work to save Sternbild City from various threats, from bank robbers to terrorists.

What sets Tiger & Bunny apart from other superhero shows is its focus on the commercialization of superheroes. The superheroes in Sternbild City are sponsored by various companies and are televised live, making it a popular form of entertainment. As a result, Tiger & Bunny explores the concept of fame and how it affects the city's superheroes. The show also explores the idea of heroism and what it takes to be a hero. It explores the human side of superheroes, from their personal struggles to their relationships with their loved ones.

The anime features a diverse cast of characters, each with their unique personalities and backstories. Kotetsu T. Kaburagi/Wild Tiger is the main protagonist, and he is joined by his partner Barnaby Brooks Jr./Bunny. Barnaby is a young and skilled hero who has a vendetta against the person who killed his parents. Other notable heroes include Dragon Kid, a gadget-wielding martial artist, Blue Rose, a pop-star superheroine, and Fire Emblem, a flamboyant and charming superhero.

The villains in Tiger & Bunny are no less exciting than the heroes. The series features various villains like Lunatic, a vigilante who believes that the city's heroes are not doing enough to protect the people. There is also Jake Martinez, a ruthless criminal who has the power to control electricity, and Maverick, a corrupt executive who is secretly working against the heroes.

The animation style of Tiger & Bunny is stunning, and each character is well-constructed, right down to their costumes. The anime uses a combination of traditional animation and CG animation, which makes the action scenes smooth and highly detailed.

The anime's soundtrack is also notable, featuring a mix of techno-pop and jazz music that suits the show's futuristic setting. The opening theme, "Orion wo Nazoru" by Takumi Fujiwara, is an upbeat and catchy tune that perfectly captures the show's energy.

Overall, Tiger & Bunny is an exciting anime that appeals to both fans of the superhero genre and those looking for an action-packed series. With a unique premise, well-crafted characters, and stunning animation, it is no wonder that the show is highly regarded within the fandom. The series also has a sequel movie, Tiger & Bunny: The Rising, which is just as thrilling as the original series.

Tiger & Bunny is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (38 episodes). The series first aired on April 2, 2011.
