Manga Review: Tiger & Bunny, Vol. 1 [Paperback]

I've finished "Tiger and Bunny Vol. 1" by Mizuki Sakakibara.

Product Description

The official manga tie-in to the international smash-hit animated series!

Superpowered humans known as NEXT appeared in the world 45 years ago. Some of them fight crime in the city of Stern Bild while promoting their corporate sponsors on the hit show “HERO TV.” The people love their superheroes, even if they don’t completely understand them, and not all of the NEXT use their powers for good.

Veteran hero Wild Tiger has years of experience fighting crime, but his ratings have been slipping. Under orders from his new employer, Wild Tiger finds himself forced to team up with Barnaby Brooks Jr., a rookie with an attitude. Overcoming their differences will be at least as difficult for this mismatched duo as taking down superpowered bad guys!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen audiences.

My Review:

In the futuristic city of Stern Bild superpower humans known as NEXT fight crime on a TV show HERO TV to promote their sponsors.

Kotetsu T. Kaburagi also known as Wild Tiger is a veteran fighter employed by TopMag but he's not doing that well.   He meets Barnaby Brooks Jr. a rookie with an attitude that calls him Old Man while Kotetsu calls Barnaby "Bunny.  Wild Tiger and Bunny are asked to team up as the first duo team.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this manga to review, greatly appreciated!
