The main characters are Naoto Azuma and Takuma Fujii, two young pro wrestlers. They were trainees at a small wrestling organization called Zipangu pro wrestling, but it wound up getting crushed by the wicked pro wrestling organization Tiger's den. In retaliation, Naoto trains at the base of Mt. Fuji and becomes the new tiger mask, and Takuma meanwhile deliberately joins Tiger's den and becomes Tiger the dark. The legacy left behind by the original Tiger mask is inherited by a new wrestler...!
**** My review contains some spoilers from episode 1 ***Tiger Mask W is a remake of Original Tiger Mask series. The story starts with the fight of Japanese wrestling champion (Daisuke FUJII) and an American wrestling champion (Yellow Devil). Yellow Devil easily knocked out Daisuke and after winning the fight, Yellow Devil unnecessarily attacked Daisuke again. Due to that final attack, Daisuke became permanently crippled. In the story, two of the students of Daisuke are trying to avenge their teacher. Both of them are taking different routes to get to the Yellow Devil. The story is action packed with some comedy. Story 7/10:Although the story is interesting, there are many plot holes like the anime doesn't explain why most of the wrestlers are always wearing the mask and hiding their true identity (some wrestlers even wear their masks on their dates). Sound 10/10:Music in the anime is really exciting. In the 30+ episodes that I watched I never skipped the opening song. Character development: 7/10Character development is a bit hasty, tiger mask is OP from his first fight. Final Remarks:So far I'm enjoying this anime a lot. The 5/10 rating of this anime on anime-planet is a bit unjust. I would recommend this anime to anyone who likes sports-related anime (e.g. Hajime no Ippo)
