Looks like it will be terrible to be honest, I wish the original was subbed.

Bentley Lewis
Bentley Lewis

So far we know "The Rainmaker" Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Yuji Nagata, and "The Unchained Gorilla" Togi Makabe are confirmed. Time will tell if Tetsuya Naito or any of the other members of Los Ingobernables de Japon will show up. But already it's a good start.

Christopher Rodriguez
Christopher Rodriguez

Hope they get Masaaki Yuasa involved.

Robert Cruz

Xavier Garcia

Toei

Wyatt Robinson
Wyatt Robinson

how popular is my man omega compared okada or tanahashi.

from what I hear he's one of top heel with naito

is it possible for him to get a cameo is just a pipedream

Justin Sullivan
Justin Sullivan

So, is this gonna be an actual wrestling anime or something like a hero show? Also seconding this man cause my nigga Kenny Omega is god-tier

Jonathan Rogers
Jonathan Rogers

The original is also Toei.

Leo Adams

Okada and Tanahashi are super popular and the 2 biggest stars.

They do a lot of crossover media too

Omega is almost at his peak in Japan right now.

Cameron Anderson

It's starting.

Oliver Williams

The original isn't from modern Toei, that's the point

Dylan Gomez

Crunchyroll is also on hand for this too. Y'know, if you don't like torrenting things for reasons.

Cameron Torres

Man all the background characters look like shit

In other news water is wet

Connor Wilson
Connor Wilson

I don't know shit about Tiger Mask, Wrestling, or where the two intersect to make this. I haven't even gotten around to reading Kinnukuman yet! But this looks fun as fuck, I'm a huge sucker for old school anime being rebooted. Seems like it'll be fun.

Jonathan Torres
Jonathan Torres

Thanks lads. Looks like subs will be out in around an hour and forty minutes.

Noah Nelson
Noah Nelson

Is this a direct sequel to the 80s show or can I just watch this alone?

Easton Bailey
Easton Bailey

I've never seen the original, but this seems friendly enough for a newcomer, so far.

Wyatt James
Wyatt James

Tiger Mask: post-WW2 Japanese orphan does Hell Training at a Evil Sport Corporation because he was tired of being weak. This includes fighting real life wild animals with bare hands.
To repay them, he has to be the evilest motherfucker on a wrestling mat, which includes causing actual harm to his adversaries. As in, breaking their teeth with a ringbell(just to start)

But he's still a nice guy under all the blood of his adversaries, so he ends up trying to reform because the new kids of his old orphanage.
TRYING is the keyword, because "fighting fairly" has been beaten out of him, literally.

The whole series is basically him trying to learn how to fight without trying to straight up murder his adversaries, while the Evil Organization keeps sending killer wrestlers against him

Jace Rivera
Jace Rivera

FUCK YEAH

L'UOMO TIGRE IS BACK

Charles Nelson

The screencaps, they tell nothing.

Ethan Martin

The american-based Global Wrestling Monopoly is on the way to conquer the Japanese market, that they've yet to break in
All they need is an anime version of McMahon to be any more blatant than that

Jaxson Myers

Very, I've had this in my list of upcoming chinkcartoons a while.

Thomas Gonzalez

I'll give it half a manandtaur out of 10

Matthew Price
Matthew Price

So is this actual wrestling or is it gonna be like that shitty female wrestling one?

Nathan Garcia
Nathan Garcia

It seems like actual wrestling, except everyone is convinced of the fake plots, Stephanie is actually a sexy blonde who speaks perfect japanese, and a whole lot of Nippon Banzai nationalism

Noah Sanders
Noah Sanders

"Actual wrestling, if the plots were actually true and they were really trying to kill each other on the ring"

Colton Thompson
Colton Thompson

My spaghetti

Parker Diaz
Parker Diaz

man the real life tiger mask looks so stupid compared the anime tiger mask. It looks like a fucking party mask, why doesn't it cover the full face.

also jushin liger anime when

Kayden Ward

This is amazing.

Carter Rodriguez

Jonathan Russell

If tiger mask w become a success the chance for a new kinnikiman is possible, so i'll give this series full support and also because wrestling anime/manga is awesome

Jonathan Harris
Jonathan Harris

Tfw my husbando left Japan before getting an animu adaptation

Luis Hughes

Do Japanese even care about Tiger Mask anime anymore? I expect this to bomb like a motherfucker.

Jaxon Brooks
Jaxon Brooks

TAIGA MASKUUU

Dylan Phillips
Dylan Phillips

who care if it bomb it's not like is gonna have some amazing animation or storytelling, toei is not gonna lose any money since they're already rich. In the end this is just some advertisement for nwjp

Im just watching this for my husbando tanahashi

Jacob White
Jacob White

This show is hilariously stupid, The whole plot is hilarious.

I can't wait for more.

Aiden Foster

Why can't Inoki show up? He's the founder of New Japan and still alive.

Austin Richardson

Is the identify of the Yellow Devil Date Naoto?

Charles Wood

match ended in 2 move, definitely a 1 star match. And people say njpw is the best in the world.

Ian Price
Ian Price

Seems to be a plain reboot with no connections.

Isaiah Sullivan
Isaiah Sullivan

Toei doesn't care about BD sales, these anime are about viewers.

I don't know what you mean by bombing but this won't "bomb" in any way.

Hunter Anderson
Hunter Anderson

does the artstyle remind anyone else of gundam G reco and king gainer?

Jordan Martin
Jordan Martin

Why do they look like Toriko??

James Nelson
James Nelson

Naoto's mechanic used the name Yellow Devil when working for Tiger's Den back in the first series.
I suspect his leg is damaged because his fight against Tiger The Great

Also, Naoto trains in the ruins of Tiger Mask II's Tiger Pyramid

Anthony Morales
Anthony Morales

shit, you're still here after all these years? still not grown out of Cred Forums?

Sebastian Thomas
Sebastian Thomas

E l'uomo tigre lotta contro il male,
combatte solo la malvagita',
non ha paura, si batte con furore,
ed ogni incontro vincere lui sa.

Bentley Richardson

But old Toei also sucked, still frames everywhere and reused footage.

Alexander Kelly
Alexander Kelly

Stupid as fuck
Already a QUALITY shitfest

Dropped.

Isaac Nguyen

The original serie had tons of brutality and blood spilling everywhere, I doubt we're going to have that. Nips these days are afraid of too much blood.

Christian Thompson

I want to make Miss X a Mrs X.

Andrew Morris

Her engrish is fucking terrible.

Jackson Martin

yu kobayashi really needs to change her voice sometimes. I can hear her a mile away just like sugita

Jacob Butler

why would you ever not want just sugita though?

Easton Harris
Easton Harris

The only people that say that NJPW is the best in the world are the ones that just know Styles and Nakumura.

Joshua Anderson
Joshua Anderson

This is not NJPW.

So Tiger Mask ran away to save Odin from his Tiger Execution?

Alexander Rodriguez
Alexander Rodriguez

The ED sounds great.

Jaxson Sullivan
Jaxson Sullivan

it was never about winning the match for tiger mask
him running away is more of a publicity stunt than if he just showed up and won

Ethan Perry
Ethan Perry

Reminds me of BORN TO BE WILD also by Shonan no Kaze

youtube.com/watch?v=qAvcHwlxxIo

Lucas Moore
Lucas Moore

Oh shit, right, the ring counter
Oh well, let's keep it cool and keep running away

Aaron Howard
Aaron Howard

I was pretty impressed with the animation quality.

Cooper Williams
Cooper Williams

I was more impressed by the art, the animation was iffy at points, far better than toei usually is though

Nathan Morgan
Nathan Morgan

Thats it.

I was expecting zero budget to this anime.
But it had decent animation and a pretty good arstyle.

Christopher Davis
Christopher Davis

wearing a njpw shirt
not njpw

Julian Russell
Julian Russell

Thats another show.

Okada literally said he wanted nothing with Wrestle Max.

They were wrestling in GWM

Jose Jones

Tiger's Den is located in Vancouver?

Eli Gray

I'm not even mad

Goddamn evil Canadians

It's alright he tried to kill him first.

The tiger mask was on the line here.

who /woo/ here?

Parker Stewart
Parker Stewart

the last fight of the original

youtube.com/watch?v=rqeTXzoBAfQ

this is murd

Jayden Peterson
Jayden Peterson

That's fucking brutal.

Josiah Bennett
Josiah Bennett

real life tiger mask is the 4th and he's old now. Jushin was Go Nagai creation.

Matthew Roberts
Matthew Roberts

It actually STARTS with a reasonable amount of blood.

GWM is in Canada.

Tiger's Den is probably still in the Swiss Alps as usual

he got at that point after over 100 episodes of trying to be a Face kids could take as inspiration.

Yeah, Original Naoto was the best wrestler ever trained by Tiger's Den... that's why Miss X was so intent to have Odin kill New Naoto. Can't have a(nother) Tiger Mask around

Aaron Cooper
Aaron Cooper

this desu
also chaos marks

Ayden Sanchez
Ayden Sanchez

If it weren't for the faces, the artsyle really reminds of the Hanna-Barbera artstyle rather than an old japanese anime

Jayden Collins
Jayden Collins

Geez that's overkill

Ryder Collins
Ryder Collins

I'm not talking about the person, I'm say the real life mask suck since it doesn't cover the full face like jushin's does

Joseph Campbell
Joseph Campbell

CHAOS it's fucking pointless and I highly doubt it has some marks, so let's keep it in okada marks.

Jace Clark
Jace Clark

2 biggest stars

Big match Tana is but Naito draws more than Okada. Okada is just pushed by Gedo to be the top guy. Nakamura was WAY bigger than Okada as well while holding the second belt.

Josiah Cox
Josiah Cox

Well, I know what i'm gonna be watching that's not in this season now.

Jayden Gonzalez
Jayden Gonzalez

mister x or miss x?

youtube.com/watch?v=NYHQCSW-O00

Caleb Cox
Caleb Cox

Naito sells more merchandising but i dunno about actual drawing power.

Not that i really care in the end.

Brayden King
Brayden King

Most full face masks suck. All the best ones are partial.

Alexander Smith
Alexander Smith

NJPW has Shibata, Ishii, Tana, Omega and LOS. Their only downfall is not having based CIMA.

Matthew Campbell
Matthew Campbell

mister x was just a glorius villain

youtube.com/watch?v=CJVKiRHed_8

Christian Powell
Christian Powell

woo

Jeremiah Gomez
Jeremiah Gomez

yes. it being overkill is pretty much the whole point

Sebastian Green
Sebastian Green

How many episodes will this be?
12?

Dylan Thomas
Dylan Thomas

He legit draws bigger gates when he headlines. Ever since suddenly developing a personality he's about a year away from Nakamura levels of drawing and Omega is about one GOAT WK match away to get to AJ's level.

Parker Collins
Parker Collins

Crunchy actually OP and ED translations
Pretty surprised actually

Blake Evans
Blake Evans

The ED is pretty incredible if only for the Yellow Devil in suit.

There is literally no cooler imagery than masked wrestlers in casual clothing

Jack Gray
Jack Gray

As much as I love Kenny, AJ is a step above pretty much every active wrestler today.

Ethan Barnes
Ethan Barnes

Kenny is too geeky to be on the same level as AJ imo.

Dylan Young
Dylan Young

That doesn't look like a 46, it looks more like a 19

Jacob Brown
Jacob Brown

AJ has been the best wrestler in the world since Bryan's retirement. I was speaking more in how Omega is viewed. West interest lessened when AJ left and Omega has been trying to get it to return. That G1 performance made him a made man imo just like it did AJ, all he has to do now is GOAT it up with Okada at WK.

Charles Gomez
Charles Gomez

You need a thick neck in wrestling for bridges
also so you can botch SSPs and not die

Logan Green
Logan Green

Yeah, sure. But my point is that the only people who think NJPW is the best wrestling company in the world are the ones who just know AJ, Nakamura and BC because they saw them in the wwe

Jace Parker
Jace Parker

Italy fused with the East
Visual representation of what's going on here.

Gavin Davis
Gavin Davis

The difference between AJ and Omega is that Omega is too quick to fall on his "nerdy" tendencies when he is not in a BIG match.

AJ just carries himself better on a show-by-show basis

Ian Nelson
Ian Nelson

tbqh there are people like that but during their peak in 14 and 15 NJPW is when NJPW got most of it's hype.

Jack Turner
Jack Turner

Peru, Chile, Argentina and Huehueland
I wanna see those South American fighters.

Lucas Johnson
Lucas Johnson

implying it will be as bloody and violent as the old series
Look at this shit
youtube.com/watch?v=rqeTXzoBAfQ

William Anderson
William Anderson

I see what you mean, yeah. I expect his match with Okada to really put a full stop on what has been a fantastic 12 months for him. Assuming that doesn't somehow change in the upcoming shows, which I really don't expect it to.

Realistically what's actually better though?

Juan Gonzalez
Juan Gonzalez

The way he smiles after the table is broken

Dominic Ortiz
Dominic Ortiz

Welp that's a heel tiger. In this time we have a face tiger.

Jack Price

Gedo says: oi oi cheer mah boi okada.
Fuck Okada's era.

El consejo
EVOLVE
Elite

Jace Garcia
Jace Garcia

EVOLVE

lol user.
I like EVOLVE but Timothy's run as a champion has been underwhelming to say the least.

James Rodriguez
James Rodriguez

I'm pretty sure murder is against the rules in wrestling.

Samuel Edwards
Samuel Edwards

Can't say I'm well versed in Lucha, so I'll take your word for 1 and 3. El Eonsejo is CMLL right? Evolve has a cold as fuck champ right now, though Galloway et. al. are killing it and I dig Riddle, but I still feel NJPW has better top to bottom cards right now.

Thomas Gray
Thomas Gray

Guess again.
youtube.com/watch?v=F2MUUYRPAIM

Samuel Cooper
Samuel Cooper

nope. that's the FACE Tiger.

that never stopped Tiger's Den: they make money out of illegal bet pools, where murder is classified as a win

Luis Brooks
Luis Brooks

I'll say this though, EVOLVE has a really hot angle though it's completely misguided on who are the "face" and the "heel" on it.

Grayson Nelson
Grayson Nelson

Even if his title run is absolute dogshit, Thatcher doesn´t deserve all the shit he's getting. And gulak and riddle are among the best wrestlers in the world.

Isaac Howard
Isaac Howard

Ironic that you'd say that and post a video of Misawa giving a move.

Adrian Mitchell
Adrian Mitchell

I know right. Only posted it because it's the Tiger Driver and the announcer is screaming about murder.

Also it's arguably the GOAT singles wrestling match of all time.

Jose Hall
Jose Hall

I mean Thatcher wrestles almost exclusive for EVOLVE nowadays and for like 6 months most of his matches are just nothing.
And i say that as someone who likes the Thatcher vs Catch Point feud on paper.

Also i can just watch Gulak on Chikara

Jack Lewis
Jack Lewis

Dunno if you will be able to soon, since he's been on RAW.
Would actually be quite a loss for Chikara at this point if Gulak couldn't be there anymore

Also Hallowicked/Gulak is a MOTY candidate and you shouldn't have to spoiler Chikara like it's a bad thing.

Caleb Roberts
Caleb Roberts

Well because Gulak besides being Gulak in Chikara he is another character there that i'm not sure everybody knows

Jack Sanders
Jack Sanders

It's Daijiro Kato, died in 2003 after a crash in Japan GP. Number 74.

Cooper Watson
Cooper Watson

IRC meltzer said that neither gulak or nese are signed

Gabriel White
Gabriel White

BAH GAWD STOP THE DAMN MATCH

Jack Thomas
Jack Thomas

Yeah. to lose him and his masked alias would be quite bad.

I mean I know he's still booked on evolve shows, but that might not mean much. Would be nice to see him around elsewhere still, but the guy deserves to be a star.

Anthony Wright
Anthony Wright

Fucking pussy ran away.

Cooper James
Cooper James

IIRC the referee was already launched outside the mat...

by the way, the fights being TOO bloody was an actual serious plot-point\problem in the original series

Jonathan Stewart
Jonathan Stewart

Gulak and Kendrick are the only ones in the cruiserweight division that don't work a flippy style, add swann and you have the only ones that have some sort of gimmick. He'll be fine.

Nolan Robinson
Nolan Robinson

Draaaaaaaaaven

Logan Garcia
Logan Garcia

Eh it's hard to say the booking in CMLL is good, all the dumb backstage politics is more interesting than what happens in the show. I would say they have the best wrestling in Mexico right now though. Dragon Gate tends to have a better good matches per card ratio than NJPW thought that's not hard to do because of the 8man tag hell NJPW doesn't want to walk away from. The british indie scene is really good too, don't be afraid to pirate some shows. One of them Progress Wrestling tends to have better cards than NJPW with wrestling on the same level.

Robert Thomas
Robert Thomas

What a dickhead

Adam Walker
Adam Walker

I was at chapter 36, so I can kind of agree on Progress. Dragon Gate has the best BIG shows, but I think NJPW trumps them overall.

Jason Ramirez
Jason Ramirez

I prefer DDT when it comes to Puro honestly.

Leo Gutierrez
Leo Gutierrez

People sure bitched a shit ton about the destruction shows they had recently, I honestly skipped like 80% of the show when I watched them too. I honestly only watch the big shows for dragon gate though, but only because they're the easiest to find online.

Hunter Thompson
Hunter Thompson

I prefer Stardom

Jason Collins
Jason Collins

The manly tears are flowing..

Testosterone level Tiger

Definitely voting for Trump

Luke Cox
Luke Cox

I dunno, stardom roster is too thin

Thats also my main problem with Dragon Gate

Jaxson Price
Jaxson Price

Yeah I'm following most western wrestling shows. But I'm completely lost when it comes to japa. But basics are okada is currently the champ, in the biggest promotion in Japan.

Andrew Gray
Andrew Gray

Oh shit. He keeps working himself into a shoot?

Eli Lopez
Eli Lopez

Still not as bad as modern AJPW.

Jose Thompson
Jose Thompson

Do I have to watch anything else to be able to watch this? I'm completely lost at what's going on this thread.

Jaxon Edwards
Jaxon Edwards

It's a reboot so no, the guys are just using the show as an excuse to post off-topic about Pro-Wrestling IRL.

Jack Barnes
Jack Barnes

You just need to know what is wrestling. That's it.

Nathaniel Butler
Nathaniel Butler

Modern AJPW is pretty good nowadays though.

Nolan Watson
Nolan Watson

But basics are okada is currently the champ
Another thing you may want to know is that Tanahashi (he'll show up too) is the former champ, and somewhat former ace of Japan (Okada is the current ace). Being the ace is equivalent to what Cena was during 2006-2012. There's a lot of paralels between Cena and Tanahashi, like the age, but also the memes (Tanawinslol). But overall, Tana always delivers on big matches, so people don't hate him as much as Cena (Cena is just now delivering great matches, and the smarky community has learnt to respect him in the last few years, but booing him is still too much fun).

Josiah Brooks
Josiah Brooks

Yea, it's just funny that they're outdrawing NOAH cards with GHC Heavyweight title defenses, with just 11 people on their roster.

Samuel Nguyen
Samuel Nguyen

AJPW gets some K-Dojo, BJW and DDT guys so its fine.

Henry Fisher
Henry Fisher

Isnt the main charcter like dead? Run over by a car?

Carter Campbell
Carter Campbell

Same name, different guy.

Julian Ramirez
Julian Ramirez

The subs aren't very good.

Joseph Taylor
Joseph Taylor

Okay, I was all for this manly bull shit. But this kind of draws the line for sub par animation.

That fucking crowd is unacceptable.

Brody Mitchell
Brody Mitchell

I didn't noticed that shit.

Cooper Johnson
Cooper Johnson

We've had CG mob characters in a lot of shows going back several seasons. Students walking to school, people on the streets, fans in stadiums, etc. Sadly, that sort of cost-savings is here to stay.

Nolan Miller
Nolan Miller

They
Don't
Even
Fucking
Move

Michael Ward
Michael Ward

If Gedo is smart he should debut Tanaka and Komatsu as Tiger Mask W and Tiger The Dark

Kayden Morales
Kayden Morales

toei

expected shit, but damn that had some solid animation. Love the artstyle.

Landon Robinson
Landon Robinson

I'll be honest with you, i didn't even notice them

It is pretty funny tho

Levi Kelly
Levi Kelly

pretty acurrate for a japanese puroresu crowd

Ian Torres
Ian Torres

How do you guys feel about the Rolling Sobat as a finisher

If this tiger mask becomes an actual wrestler, he should use Scott Lost's Big Fat Kill

Grayson Edwards
Grayson Edwards

if they moved they'd pull you away from the action.

like in real wrestling, the audience is there, but they're not supposed to be seen. you're supposed to forget real life and focus on the performances

Dylan Rodriguez
Dylan Rodriguez

One piece sound effects are dragonball sound effects.

How far back do they go, I wonder?

Jaxon Scott
Jaxon Scott

Is the MC King from Tekken?

Gavin Smith
Gavin Smith

King is based on Tiger Mask

Kayden Evans
Kayden Evans

So is Ramon from KOF by the way

Grayson Watson

Ending song of the season

Is wrestling like this?

Henry Brown
Henry Brown

Absolutely

Xavier Martinez
Xavier Martinez

It really is.

Gavin Robinson
Gavin Robinson

At least Kenny Fucking Omega will appear in this, r-right?

Owen King
Owen King

Sound effects are always reused, Slayers has the same sound effects as GaoGaiGar, which has the same songs as J-Decker, Which has the same sound effects as Gundam, which has the same sound effects as SDF Macross, which has the same sound effects as Harlock. It's so fucking weird hearing the same fucking noise in so many shows.

Anthony Peterson
Anthony Peterson

No

Maybe the entire series will be translated randomly one day, like Ashita no Joe.

Jackson Allen
Jackson Allen

While reading up on tiger mask, I found out eddie guerrero was black tiger II. That's pretty cool I didn't know that. anybody know any good match in his stint as black tiger. I just saw the one with him and benoit as pegasus kid and it was good.

Nathaniel Scott

Swagsuke and Styles left for Meekmahan before they got animated

Evan Cooper

Jonathan Lewis

I hope they have something like Bullet Club/Los Ingobernables later on.
A rogue faction that allied with no one and just bringing chaos whenever they came.

Dominic Turner

That'd be sweet. I've always wanted to watch this one. Hopefully the new show builds interest.

HARUNA WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING

This little girl must have massive balls.

Seriously, Tiger's Den being Tiger's Den, if Miss X wasn't so flabbergasted by Tiger Mask's entrance, you'd think she'd be strangling Haruna with her whip by now.

All you really need to know is this:
- in Tiger Mask, professional wrestling is a serious and very violent bloodsport - yes, I said BLOODsport
- Tiger's Den is a supervillain organization whose wrestlers are heels, legitimately evil, trained to be so through deadly, inhumane routines, and who cheat all the damn time, so expect hidden blades in their boots or gloves; Yellow Devil in this episode was the perfect example of your typical Tiger's Den masked wrestler
- the protagonist and titular character is a humanitarian, selfless hero who has no intention of letting Tiger's Den kill anyone or using their methods against them if he can help it
- the original Tiger Mask was so humanitarian he fought for the sake of an orphanage, and as soon as this anime was announced, a charity race was started by fans of ye olden series, as you can see, the Tiger continues to inspire such altruism

King in Tekken 2 meets the orphans in his ending, King is basically Tiger Mask with a Jaguar motif

Lucas Garcia
Lucas Garcia

and as soon as this anime was announced, a charity race was started by fans of ye olden series, as you can see, the Tiger continues to inspire such altruism

Welcome to Tiger's Den, this is your average workout.

Here's some more:
The manga became a popular topic in the national news in Japan in recent years after an anonymous donation of backpacks at a child guidance center sparked a charity movement. The "Tiger Mask movement" spread to almost every corner of Japan.

In my country they made a 1:30 min movie from Tiger Mask Ni Sei, and you could only find it in video format. God I love this song and this story. Even the animation was great, especially for such an old show. They knew how to draw a wrestler's body and moves too. Shame this new series is horrible.

Maybe its because of the 70's style reboot, or that I haven't noticed any reboots since then, but I'm getting massive Abarenbou Rikishi Matsutaro vibes from this. Though I hope I won't drop it like I did Matsutaro because Wrestling is campy enough to enjoy, while I don't think Matsutaro actually sumo'd until like episode 8, after which I swiftly dropped it.

Nah, not really at least. My father used to say American wrestling was only for entertainment but utterly fake and the real deal was the japanese league. This because he was a "tiger mask" fan (he was in his twenties when they started broadcasting tiger mask in Italy, so basically in the early 80's), so probably he thought the japanese league was violent as fuck back then. American Wrestling become extremely popular in Italy during the 2000

Kayden Taylor

Unfortunately, being deliberately bad generally isn't more interesting than the other kind of bad. Tiger Mask W's cheap look may be intentional, but it's still off-putting - the characters aren't expressive at all, and action scenes rely on the over-the-top drama of their fundamentals (Tiger Mask just threw a bear!) over any power of execution. That's a major flaw, considering Tiger Mask W's storytelling is just as basic as its visual style. If you're going for campy bombast, you can't just rely on nostalgia - modern throwbacks like JoJo may feel archaic in some ways, but they complement that old-fashioned energy with legitimately compelling execution.

Meaning that in the end, nostalgia is really all Tiger Mask W has going for it. It's not an overtly frustrating show or anything, it's just a cheap-looking and clumsily written one.

So Dave, What did you think about the GWM Event?
Uh...It-it was alright...Mostly rookies, some angles but i fear...uh..y'know...the bookers don't really understand how the audience works in japan
I THOUGHT THE SAME THING. I mean they made Big Star Odin look like a huge GEEK
No kidding, no kidding. I'm all for new guys, but i'm not sure they did the right job by jobbing one of your top guys
Well, i suppose Odin wasn't that big of a draw
Even so...uh..y'know...that's precisly why he isn't a-d-a-draw.
Anyway, get us through the show
Like i said previously, nothing that remarkable....biggest things were the debuts of...uh...let me see my notes...two mas-two new tiger wrestlers. Tiger The Dark from Tiger's Den and a new Tiger Mask
Hmm, I don't know if debuting those two so closely is a good idea
No kidding.
Well let's get through the match

Am I the only one that thought the writing was kinda poor? The style and all the aesthetics are growing on me the more I look at them, but the episode had a really rushed pace and assumed that everybody watching just knew why all these things and people were important. Feels like half an episode's worth of exposition and backstory was cut. Perhaps we'll get flashbacks of how Tiger Mask and Tiger the Dark were when they were friends. I'll definitely keep watching for wacky wrestling shonen fun, though.

Yes, Its a colaboration of NJPW and Toie i suppose that they will push Tiger Mask instead.

But much better if they put money the result will be better

His trainer went on Rogan's podcast and basically admitted Nagata only had 2 weeks to train for Fedor. If you want to blame someone, blame Inoki for his booking.

Samuel Wright

Against prime Fedor and prime CroCop when Nagata had no MMA training to speak of.

It's a minor miracle he didn't fucking die. his drawing power sure did though

Is there a more overrated wrestler than Shibata? Puro weebs jack off to him, but I just don't see it.

Be curious if something like Konami buying DDT, AJPW or NOAH.

Liam Fisher

Why would you wish that upon those companies.

Anyway DDT has tons of partnership, including some kancolle-like game about cute girl wrestlers where some of their wrestlers become cute girls

Yellow Devil is a Tiger's Den fighter.
All referees know them have no problem whatsoever to just attack anybody interferring with the fight.

Being disqualified is counted as a "victory" for Tiger's Den.

Bloody hell I really hope somebody translate the original anime(or, at very least, the manga) for the english-speaking crowd.

The Big Boss of Tiger's Den was Tiger The Great(but only in the anime: in the manga he was just a mob, not a wrestler).
Black Tiger was one of the Three Leaders alongside Big Tiger and King Tiger. King Tiger was supposed to be the actual "boss" of them three but they were pretty much on the same standing.

A really nice thing of the original Tiger Mask is Tiger's Den just throwing away their outdated Training From Hell regime for a more modern system. Still hellish, but not USELESSLY hellish(comes out letting people actually sleep and eat on a regular basis does wonders to improve their bodies): they were PROFESSIONAL and keeping update with modern training techniques was an important thing. In fact, with their new regime, their fighters were even stronger than before, if slighlty less resilient to being stabbed in the back by broken benchs.

It was a really progressive show, telling new methods can give result as good if not better than traditional methods.

Here's to hoping this makes someone translate the manga fully. I've always been interested in Tiger Mask but could never get into it.

Realistically what's actually better though?

NJPW is basically WWE with much better ME Booking. The bulk of the card is put-together and fairly brass-tacks.
For consistent weekly products, I like LU, which dances the line of ridiculous TV show and wrestling show, and Smackdown, which my friend told me to get into since WWE had a brand split recently, and I've been pleasantly surprised. It's way better than when I stopped watching in like '12.

Caleb King

Your loss. The Shield and Wyatts plus Bryan's road to WM30 was great, too bad it came to shit after Shield split

Aiden Powell

I actually watched 30, because I always make not of watching WM's, as they're just fun. And Bryan almost enticed me to start re-watching the show.
Then I heard a month or so later he was out of action.
