Tiger & Bunny:

Decent, though it feels unpleasantly like a GONZO series
Nothing exists but you. And you are but a thought
Reposting from my thread, since this one was made first.

My first reaction to the pilot episode is a "meh", but there were a few things that stood out to me:
  1. Its level of product placement is far, far greater than Code Geass.
  2. The CGI...
  3. Props for having a middle-aged-ish guy be a main character, though he has to share the spotlight with a more average bishonen type.
  4. Also props for featuring more black guys than many anime ever do. Except for Fire Emblem being really Camp Gay, which is just...eh.
  5. Agnes Whats-her-face reminds me a lot of Inari. It's the lipstick and hair.
  6. This whole thing kind of reminds me of a weirder, superhero version of pro wrestling. I wonder when they're going to engineer a Face-Heel Turn for one of their heroes?
Always Right
Reminds me of all the elemental/destiny/evil heroes in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX...

Nice animations though. I...might follow it for a few more episodes to see how it goes.

What's wrong with Fire Emblem? I think he's supposed to be comic relief.

YAY MURDER! :3
Looks like the overuse of product placement might become a major plot point later...

And why do I feel like this may turn out like Watchmen?
Always Right
Also...

Capturing criminals give more points than saving civilians...wanna bet that will become relevant to the story later on?

^ What happens in Watch Men...besides blue penis? And a giant squid.
One thing odd though...what's with the hulu commercials?

I'll be okay with it, I guess, if it remains pretty comedic, but I got some Depraved Homosexual overtones from his one line, "Your ass feels nice as always!".

Meh, it's not so much that I can't enjoy the rest of the show.

[up][up]I mean that I'm afraid that this may become another Deconstruction of the Superhero genre like Watchmen.
I think it was a rip from here. Apparently Viz is simulcasting it.
Well, Watchmen did touch on this idea, with a superhero working for a bank... Though it's probably too distanced from the original concept to do an actual deconstruction

So far...it's a bit too happy cheery to be a Watch Men clone. Plus a sexy female hero.

And it looks like these characters have actual powers, whereas Watchmen just had the blue guy.

[up]Well yeah, it all depends on where they go with this "sponsored superheros" plot.
Always Right
My original impression was they were sponsors for companies that markets super powers...that woulda been so cool.

But then that would be copying BioShock.

So can we call this Mystery Men the Anime yet?

Well at least the Product Placement actually makes complete sense.
Too Good For You
Yeah, all the CG makes this show feel really cheap, but it's so absolutely crazy I think I'll keep watching it.

Also Bunny's red suit weirded me the hell out for some reason. Double breasted, but off center? Wth?
Please be gentle with me.

I'm probably gonna follow it, particularly since it's brand of superhero deconstruction a) hasn't been done to death like the Watchmen and DKR clones and b) rings a hell of a lot more true for me than the Watchmen and DKR clone deconstructions ever did (because, let's face it, if superheroes did turn up, Viacom and Time Warner would find a way to milk the phenomenon for every red cent in under two minutes).

The CGI and the so far one-note "Har har, I'm gay! Laugh at how gay I am!" character do bug me (dammit, TV, we are not your trained monkies/fashion consultants!), but not enough to keep me from watching.

Thank you for your interest. We're sorry, but our videos can only be viewed from within the United States.

...guess I'll wait for better anime stream sites...

rrrrrrrrr
I see someone beat me to it :(

But yes, this is a great show, from what I've seen of it. I wish to know more.

^ Hulu?

Sakamoto demands an explanation for this shit.
Despite the CGI, I have to say that the animation is really quite nice.

But wow, Ho Yay. I guess it's not unexpected. There's already a good amount of art on Pixiv for the two of them...

In any case, it was a nice episode, and it will be interesting to see when Kaede's going to figure out what her father actually does for a living. I wonder if the kid is going to show up again.

Propane accessories
So far I'm quite enjoying it. I really like the aesthetic (it feels kind of like F-ZERO for some reason) and the plot is pretty entertaining. It's kind of like a Buddy Cop Show in a sponsored superhero setting.

Hmm... 2nd episode is not as smooth as the first. Parts of it are a little contrived, but it does show us some important background on Tiger.

If it's going where I think it is, then I think it'll be a fun show to watch.
 
Always Right
The subtitles...missed quite a lot of lines, and other times only stood there for half a second...

Or maybe it's jsut the site that's streaming the show that's screwing up.

That's the YOUSMELL subs. They had such terrible timing that I gave up three minutes in and went for Commie's version instead.
Liveblogging of EP 8 of Umineko no Naku Koro ni to start... sometime.
