News (Updated) Tiger and Bunny Simulcast Launches Monday
posted on 2011-04-03 18:11 EDT by Andrew Osmond
From Monday April 4, the Anime on Demand UK service is streaming the opening episode of Tiger and Bunny. The episode is available free of charge, as will be the next three episodes. The rest of the twelve-part series, which features animation by the Sunrise studio, will be put online at the rate of one episode per week, in sync with their broadcast in Japan.
From the ANN 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.

Errata: A previous version of this article stated that the first four episodes of the series would go online on Monday evening. In fact, only the first episode went online at this time. ANN apologizes for this error.
