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.
In this anime Heroes are Commodities, and companies owns them for the sake of earning profit. This really contradicts with the old Superhero archetype. But this is what makes this show interesting. Despite being stuffed with Product Placement advertising by “Real” Companies, but that only shows how Superheroes “work” in this anime.
It’s now on it’s 2nd episode ,reliving the old Saturday Morning Cartoon feel with a twists. Sunrise really has made a potential gem with this anime. and I can’t wait to see all the “Heroes” work things out together . They’re actually starting to make good Non-mecha animes.
Don’t be fooled by the title. XD
