    Wrestling comes back to anime
    It's been a long time since we have seen a really great wrestling anime on the schedule. Tiger Mask W captures the drama and the silliness that wrestling should be all about. It's only the first episode and it has a lot to prove, but I have faith it will. If you are a wrestling fan of any sort, you owe it to yourself to watch this anime. We need to show that the fans want more wrestling in anime ...

    Thank you Crunchyroll!
    Thank you so much for simulcasting Tiger Mask W! The first episode was a great start and the glimpses of New Japan Pro Wrestling and OKADA (!!!) have me excited to see where this partnership will go. Even if you're not a fan of pro wrestling (what's wrong with you?!), give this one a try because I think it will have something for everyone. Loving the "King of the Wild" end song too!

    Old School New Japan
    Tiger Mask W is the continuation of the Tiger Mask legacy. Since it's been over 30 years since the Tiger Mask II anime it's very nice to see the animation and story telling style stay very true to old 80s action/Shonen style.

    The inclusion of current NJPW stars like Makabe, Tanahashi and Okada ( as well as very obvious parodies of WWE wrestlers) this is a Saturday Morning cartoon for wrestling ...

    Old school anime & pure shounen fun
    Honestly, if you are looking for a definition of sport shounen, then Tiger Mask W is a almost perfect example. The animation feels really nice, the story is really simple and plenty incredible fights & antagonist. After a few episodes you will probably ask yourself why you are watching it, then you cannot stop. Amazing. The ending, wow, that's incredible.

    Old school anime done right
    In an era of anime where every show has Mary Sue protagonists and storylines catered to otakus, you get a show that rejects these tropes in favor of more traditional and adult oriented storytelling.

    This show is 100% old school 80s/90s style anime.

  • Fun mix of real and fiction.
    I love the blending of the real wrestling promotion and the fictional ones. As a fan of New Japan Pro Wrestling, it was awesome to see faces like Okada, Tanahashi, Omega, and Naito showing up alongside over the top (in a good way) anime characters. And seeing the exaggerated Rainmakers was a treat.

  • I didn't expect to like this but I got hooked
    I hate pro wrestling now it's all drama but I grew up before it was all talk back when it was crazy people in costumes always doing something nutty instead of talking into a microphone on stage this show is the honest-to-god anime equivalent of the original wrestling WWE Style it's ridiculous over-the-top and pretty entertaining honestly if you like strange plots and weird characters with ...

  • Old School, Character Driven, 100% Pure Fun
    I'm at episode 13 at the time of writing this and I think I have a good enough grasp of the series to write a review: it's really, really good.

    It has that old school vybe of great characters doing manly things, but somehow the backdrop of pro-wrestling makes the old school tropes that much better. The show treats pro-wrestling as 100% real and with super-high stakes causing manly tears to ...

  • Tongue and cheek, but it works
    The plot is predictable. It is about as realistic as wrestling ever does get. If your looking for something that makes you marvel at existence or prone to philosophical discussions, this is not it. The characters are just generic enough to the point to make most of the plot work.

    That said, the writers really need to work on the names. One of the villains is named Miss X. The writers are ...
