Tiger and Bunny – first impression
April 11, 2011
Speaking of Tiger and Bunny in my Spring 2011 Picks and Predictions, I wrote:
Social criticism masquerading as super sentai mecha-enhanced body suit combat? Future cloudy — ask again.
After two episodes, it is time to shake the oracle again.
So far Tiger & Bunny has succeeded in my estimation. But note well: the show does not contain a sentai feel, because what appeared to be a team in the preview, is instead a group of competing individuals. I also recommend reading Ghostlightning’s post on the difference in the morality of adult heroism versus the heroism of children.
