Wrestling? All right. And it's going to run 39 episodes according to Wikipedia? All right for that too.

As for the anime itself, animation looks... bit odd to me. It looks like it's done in 80's-90's style. And Toei Animation updated their logo? I like the older version, though. Why must everything like that modernised... I'm just saying.

And damn it! Must there fanservice too?! As if that was necessary.

The nostalgia is strong with this one. I feel like I'm a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons. It's cheezy as heck but that's why I like it.

I never watched the original but I did read up on the synopsis. So with the last few episodes it's now making a connection with the original while at first I thought it might be a remake.

Hoo boy, episode 6.

Okay so let's get the elephant in the room out of the way first: Nama Ham and Yaki Udon are very obviously boys, crossdressing as girl idols for whatever the HELL reason, and their singing sucks ass. Their personalities are bad too.

Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about the other two things in this episode.

1. Puroresu fangirls. Is this a real thing in Japan? Does pro wrestling really have a female fanbase that's more rabid than soccer? Because that whole fight between the puroresu fangirls and the fake idols was just bizarre.

2. Gorilla Jeet Singh. Just...everything about him. There's playing heel wrestler, and then there's this. Granted, from what we've seen in the series so far, this is a world where pro wrestling is very, very much a real life and death struggle and no punches are pulled, but COME ON! A scimitar-waving psychopath who barely speaks and, well...is mostly made of batshit crazy is stretching things a bit. I mean, ring personas are what they are, but DAMN, yo!

As an aside, I'm a bit dismayed at how DEAD this thread is. Nobody's posted anything since episode 4? Come on, guys, this is one of the premiere anime of the season and it's going to last three seasons! Where's the enthusiasm?!

I wish Crunchyroll would get the original Tiger Mask series. Only 3 episodes have fan subs and those were subbed a while ago. So I doubt they are going to continue it.

I'm going to resurrect this dead thread if I can!

So this eps we learn about the pat of the first Tiger Mask and all the trouble he had to go threw

The new Tiger Den can stand the name and have plans to take him down

..if you want to know what happened to first Tiger mask.

Mister Question was on fire for his age. If he was a little younger he would probably be the best wrestler there.

On the idol singers-In this universe, pro wrestling is real, idol singing is fake. I guess since they were introduced as "heels", they were cast as altos rather than the customary cute soprano voices we expect from anime idol singers.

The finale was interesting. It seems like the Yellow Devil in the locker room wasn't the same as the Yellow Devil in the ring. I wonder if that was Miss X or Yellow Devil's decision. Was the true Yellow Devil just using Billy to lure out Tiger Mask's killer move? Despite that, Billy was strong as hell to push Tiger that far.

So the final match between Tiger mask and Yellow Devil starts and is pretty brutal but Tiger mask wins! but it a hallow victory as it not the Yellow Devil Tiger mask was after...

What happens after this should be interesting.

Guess in a way Tiger the Dark is angry also as that wasn't the Yellow Devil from before. Can't wait.
