Synopsis

Sternbild City is home to people called "Next," who use their special abilities to protect the people as superheroes. These heroes solve cases and save lives so they can wear sponsor logos or acquire "hero points." Their activities are documented on the popular program "Hero TV," which picks the "King of Heroes" in a yearly ranking. The veteran hero Wild Tiger has always preferred to work alone, but now he's been assigned the rookie Barnaby Brooks Jr., who has a different perspective on being a superhero.

I'd like more people to give this show a chance.

At first glance at the title, the first impression was that the show "Tiger & Bunny" will be a cutesy show with talking tigers and bunnies. It is not.
This may be a disappointment for some.

And looking at the promotional art, people assume "Oh it's some mecha anime. Since I don't like mecha, I won't watch it." I assure you, this show is not about mechas at all. Those "mechas" are in actuality the main characters of the show in their power suits. Calling them "mechas" is akin to calling Tony Stark (of Iron Man fame) a read more

Up in the sky, look! It’s a bird! It’s a plane!
No, it’s... Billboard Man! Fighting crime, defending the innocent, an whoring himself out like it’s his first night in Hollywood!

It’s the distant future for us, and a bizarre mutation has started to occur among our population. Human beings with superhuman powers are popping up everywhere, and we’ve taken to calling them Nexts... Presumably because ‘mutants’ was taken. We initially rejected these outcasts, until they decided to don costumes and assume the role of superheroes, defending the very people who judged them on live, national TV!

Before it came out, I saw the title and a poster art, and I figured it would be Playboy-esque. Or about Mafia. Then on a fansub site, I saw it tagged as a shounen mecha with action and comedy. Now I was confused. But whichever it was (about Mafia or mecha) it wasn't gonna be good.

Then I saw that episode 1 was on Hulu. HULU? Was this legitimacy? OK, so I watched it. It was not what I was expecting. It's not about Mafia or mecha. It's about SUPERHEROES! Why couldn't somebody just come read more

Superheroes have long been a staple of popular culture, especially in the West, and over the years characters like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, and even The Hulk have become household names. With their popularity at an all-time high thanks to video game tie-ins and movie adaptations, it's only natural that pretenders to the thrones that Marvel and DC sit upon should crawl out of the woodwork.

The most obvious attempts to capitalise on the success of these comic-book creations have come from television and cinema, but while shows like "Heroes", "Chronicle" and "Misfits" have found a degree of success, the majority of attempts to reinvent, reboot or read more

Recommendations

The heroes in both series are similar in design and "creation to protect the public." 
Very similar super powers and how people use them . 
Both feature super heroes in modern day society. The relationships of the two main characters feel fairly similar, too. While Tiger & Bunny features actual superpowers, Samurai Flamenco focuses on the aspect of good deeds and growing up.

It's not hard to say what those two series have in common:
• surely the first thing you can notice is that the art is very similar, well of course it does. Masakazu Katsura is a great manga-ka and author of Zetman, he in fact also worked as original character designer for Tiger & Bunny. His great art is already something that might catch you to watch both.
• still, both series are about superpowers and the concepts of hero & villain, justice & crime, honesty & corruption.
Overall the stories, those concepts play a dominant part.
• the main characters in both series are  read more 
Both feature main characters who are parents that would do anything for their children and have super-powered alter ego's. Both have to with conspiracy's and the main characters working for major corporations. 
Both of these shows are different in genres, but have quite unique story.. not your typical school comedy. Both of them have main characters (Kotetsu and Mutta) with easygoing personalities who often get in troublesome, funny situations and are kinda unlucky (to not mention they are both voiced by the same voice actor, so no matter how you look at it they give the same feeling), but their partner/brother (Barnaby and Hibito) are successful in what they do.
