Superman (Brought to you by Coca Cola)

Just when you think commercialism has gotten more ridiculous, Tiger & Bunny takes it a step further by making traditional heroes walking billboards and throwing them into a reality TV setting.  In spite of this premise, the show is one of the better shows in the superhero genre; the characters grow on you with time and the villain does well in driving the later portions of the anime.

No. 6, on the other hand, leaves a bit to be desired.  Although the relationship between protagonists Shion and Nezumi is solid, the plot feels ham-fisted towards the end as half-baked ideas and info dumps rise up to ruin a show that had established a good amount of potential early on.
