AniDB wrote:The city of Shutenbilt is home to many people of different races, backgrounds, and those who are called Next. Next are people who possess special powers. They are the superheroes who protect peace within the city.

These heroes all have a corporate sponsor whose logo is displayed upon their backs. As they overcome disasters and save people, they improve the image of their sponsors. In addition, they earn Hero Points which determines their ranking on the popular Hero TV programme. The Hero with the most points gains the title of King of Heroes.

One of these Heroes is Wild Tiger (Kaburagi T. Kotetsu), a hotheaded veteran with a strong sense of justice. One day, he is suddenly partnered-off with newbie Barnaby Brooks Jr..


Sci-fi mecha shounen with fabulous guys. Kinda like Gundam 00, only more fabulous, I suppose.

Liking this show so far, has a very American vibe to it [I guess using Super Heroes will do that to a show]. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

Also, I'll be amused when this is licensed and all the product placement is scrubbed clean, lol.

This.
And its sad 'cause I remember watching the short preview they made for the show before it officially aired where they pretty much showed nothing but the CGI Barnaby and Wild Tiger, and thinking 'Wow Sunrise, look at the crap you've pulled now by putting in CGI.'
So I left it for such a long time, but am now watching it and love it. ;; Got to episode 6 yesterday. I'm trying to decide who I like better: Sky High or Origami Cyclone.

I've been following this from the beginning. While I considered dropping it around the sixth episode or so, I am glad I did not. This just keeps getting better. And right now, the plot thickens!

I really liked this show at first, but...

[Spoiers for the most recent ep]
Spoiler :
They way they treat Tiger is irritating he's the most likeable character on the show, and yet everybody thinks hes a screwup, his daughter hates him, he's losing his powers and now he's been framed? It's like the directors go out of their way to screw with him. Meanwhile, Barnaby, while he has tragic circumstances, is so irritating about it. Having constant random trust issues with Kotetsu, basically asking if his Auntie killed his parents...and yet everyone in-universe loves him. it's not that it's a bad show, it's just so frustrating how they handle the mains.

That said, I loved when Kotetsu slapped Barnaby :awesome:


I'm not sure how I feel about this potential sequel.

I actually liked Bunny from the beginning. I liked Kotetsu after at least 5 episodes.

Spoiler :
I wonder what will Lunatic do with his sence of justice with this framing situation and all. We'll he go after Tiger or will he somehow find a true and go after Maverick

I reached episode 12 tonight (any more episodes tonight and I'll have narcolepsy) and
Spoiler :
I WANT TO BURN THOSE 'MAD BEARS' SO BAD RIGHT NOW. THEY STARTED THIS WHOLE THING, HOW DARE THEY START SOMETHING THAT PUTS ROCK BISON AND SKY HIGH NAILED TO BUILDINGS, AND TIGER INTO THE HOSPITAL. ;;


I pretty much loved Tiger since the beginning, and I'm still warming up to Bunny a little.

I enjoyed the latest quite a lot more than I have for a while. It was quite nice and the animation jumped back up too :3
