The anime as a whole is more or less true to the game it was based off, most people regard it as an anime/children's cartoon and this is true in some regards, I liked the anime out of sentimental reasons and because the morals were just out there having to deal with life and being a hero, you get to the point where you root for Joe and get a laugh or two but also realize that he's just a dude trying to rescue his girl with his own twist.

Anime: One Piece
Luffy and Joe are similar in a few ways. They're really strong, have a lot a cool tricks up there sleeves, protect their friends, and are really funny. With both Luffy and Joe, when I first started watching they both came off as annoying but i grew to love 'em both.

Other than that VJ and OP both have great action scenes and a decent plot.

Anime: Tiger & Bunny
The main protagonists of both Viewtiful Joe / Tiger & Bunny are both lazy & not very bright characters, similar to Michaelangelo from TMNT.

Both shows involve a world filled with heroes and have some comedy mixed in between the different parts of the story. Both shows are great, you'll be immersed in the story and art!
