For prior conversation in anticipation of the show see http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-942371/tiger-mask-anime-project#54333789



Plot:
Two young wrestlers face each other in a recently revived underground wrestling organization, the Tiger's Lair, which destroyed the wrestling dojo they grew up in. One took over the training facilities of Naoto Date at the foot of Mount Fuji, as well as the mask he left behind. The other dared to enter the Tiger's Lair and won a fierce competition, receiving a jet-black tiger mask. One tiger walks the path of light, while the other walks the path of shadows. Neither one knows the other's face. On the ring, they are natural enemies, but they have the same purpose—destroy the Tiger's Lair!

As a wrestling fan, I'm pretty satisfied at what they did with this. Feels like a mix of NJPW, Lucha Underground, and raw wrestling drama with intense moves.

I want to know more about the characters too outside the ring.

Wasn't expecting to really enjoy it, and it lived up to my expectations. Might be good for those who are into it but I won't be back for Ep 2.

Yeah. That's about how I'm feeling too.

I was hoping I'd like this, I like watching fighting; I enjoy a good revenge story. But this has just got too much cheesy machismo for me. Yawn.

Ok, I know this is based on a series, so I just gotta ask, do I need to go back and watch anything before I watch this? I seemed to understand what was going on in here for the first episode. It could use a little more on the character development side, but I think we will get that with more episodes to come. I'm just asking to know if I should go back and watch to understand this specific story.

This is so incredibly retro, and I freaking love it! It feels like 80s shounen anime, has a Showa-era tokusatsu throwback theme song, and I just love everything about this!
