Lost in Translation
The Tiger & Bunny anime series premiered in Japan on April 2, 2011. The series has since inspired two films, Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Beginning and Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Rising. The Rising opened in theaters in North America last month. Viz Media describes the story:
Kotetsu T. Kaburagi, a.k.a. Wild Tiger, and Barnaby Brooks Jr.'s partnership comes to a sudden end when Apollon Media's new owner Mark Schneider fires Kotetsu and moves Barnaby back into the First League, pairing him up with Golden Ryan, a new hero with awesome powers and a huge ego to match. When the heroes are sent to investigate a string of strange incidents tied closely to the city's Goddess Legend, they discover three superpowered NEXTs plotting to bring terror and destruction to Stern Bild.
