Japan doesn't always know how to make superheroes, but in a few of their tries, they come out with great results.

Although the recent Marvel anime has been kinda crap, stuff like Heroman and Tiger & Bunny are of fantastic quality.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCOeG45YyPc Here's Heroman, an original concept by crazy old Stan Lee, our favorite comics grandpa.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsyBBWc5jEA And here's Tiger & Bunny, a concept of japanese superheroes using a reality TV show and branding to stay popular amongst the crowd, while maintaining their sense of morality.


Although there isn't alot of success in understanding superheroes as a whole, we can see that Japan is learning, and learning really well. I'm loving these attempts at western superhero mythology in Japan, and I can't wait for any others.

Any superhero anime you guys would reccomend?

Hmmm. I really never see any superhero anime. Then again, I'm too lazy to look for them since I was raised with the thought that a Japanese anime hero was like PIERCE THE HEAVENS MAN.

Nah, Kamina-like heroes are more heroes of the people and popular avengers than actual "superheroes", with the superhero mindset.

Stuff like Gatchaman, Astro Boy and Kamen Rider also fall within that category, I think.

Last Marvel Anime I watched completely was Wolverine, it really sucked. Dropped Iron Man and X-Men after first episodes, didn't had any interest in Blade.

Tiger & Bunny so far is awesome, after having plot twists during the 2nd half. xD

The Marvel animes were seriously bad.

After just finished watching Tiger & Bunny's latest episode, it's currently my favorite anime of the season. It's just really good. Starts out slow, gets awesome. I love the way the friendship has evolved.

They seriously feel like Dick and Damian in Morrison's run of Batman and Robin. XD
