First let's start with the Story.
When you look at the title its a little off putting, but honestly the title is what drove me to try this series. An anime called Tiger and Bunny with a cover picture of Mecha suits. It raises the curiosity. So I tired it. And I was surprised. It was funny and the art was pretty neat (CGI is a little hard to get use to at first but I find that you eventually get use to it). Then the show really started. Episodes that seemed "filler" like, weren't. And it was brilliant. My only real issue with the story is that at times I found it to be predictable which didn't bother me to much, because if I wanted a serious anime I would've watch Code Geass, Deadman Wonderland, or something like Durarara!!. The story is well written and parts where it seems unimportant come back and become well, important.
Like I said earlier the art is hard to get use to with the mix of CGI and anime-style. But eventually you get use to it and then it works. I think if the CGI wasn't in Tiger and Bunny, I wouldn't have kept coming back. The CGI makes it Tiger and Bunny (or rather the art of TnB) It adds to its overall quirkiness.
I love the music for TnB. The second ending I listen to over and over. And when I watch the anime every Saturday I find myself not skipping the openings and endings like I normally do. Once you seem them its good enough. But the soundtrack is just amazing. Even the instrumentals in the backgrounds work so well. When they planned this show they didn't skimp out on small things, or the bkgd music.
TnB's characters are amazingly brilliant. Kotetsu (MC) is your usual hero. Believes completely in justice and human lives and he can be a ditz at times. What makes his character better than every other one is his age. And the fact he is a father. Then you have Burnaby, that character you dislike in the beginning but grow to love by the end. His development through the story is well-written. Even the other characters and the way the interact with each other was well thought out. Each character has their story (except seemingly not Rock Bison (Idek what his NEXT is)) that affects the original storyline.
I love anime and I love following it. And when a new anime comes out I try to follow it weekly but it is difficult with life. This show is the only one I have tried to follow every week (airs on Saturday). And every Saturday I feel so sad because it means that I can't watch it for another week. TnB will hook you. The characters, the art, the sound, the story it all leaves you wanting more Tiger and more Bunny.
Overall, I would love for this anime to be sold in North America so that I can buy it and watch it over and over and show all my friends. I would also love for it to become more popular and for people to try it out. And I would love it if you readers would give it a chance and not dismiss it because its mecha (which honestly it isn't) or that the name is childish.
Tiger and Bunny is my favourite anime and I wish others would come to see why.
Thanks for reading my review and I hope you try the show out!~

I feel this is an original story line. The reason why is that, you have your classical magic school girl story line trying to save the world, however Hime-chan mostly uses her power to transform and help herself or others. No saving the world needed.
This is an older manga, so it isn't well none, but should be because of the originality.
Because it is an older manga, the art isn't top notch, but those who like older art styles or read more older manga, shouldn't be bothered with it. I think the art is adorable and well fitting.
I actually found I liked almost all of the characters. Usually I tend to like some better than others or hate some more, but this one I like every character. All the characters bode well together and they all help each other in different ways.
Overall I really enjoyed this read. There where some times where I was bored stiff but that would be because I watched the anime first then the manga, and they both are very similar and stray to far from the story line. I feel many should enjoy the story and the characters, well everything.
This is something for every Shoujo fan to read, because it is a well written shoujo story. Even if you don't like Shoujo stories you should like this one.
I hope this helps. XDD read more

The show is extremely good however, there are parts when I wanted to stop watching since it got boring or the fillers where plain annoying. That is why overall I gave it a nine.
Basically it is about a teenage boy who receives a demon from his father in order to make friends. Kiyo is pulled into crazy adventures with his friends, trying to save the demon world. There are many challenges and many issues they have to face, however the deal with problems with their friends, Umagon, Tio, and Kanchome. The plot was very intriguing but the fillers would ruin the plot line time to time.
The characters each have their own story that they have to face, and the hardships pull them down. But when they learn about friendship, and courage, it makes you want to jump up and cheer them on. The teach us in different ways the effects of violence, friendship, and loss through their own eyes. They each stick to their portrayed character extremely well, and they were well constructed.
I loved this anime overall even all the bad points, and I couldn't wait for the next episode to follow. I believe that they are many people who would enjoy this type of anime.
