  1. Final Tiger and Bunny manga is out, and the series is complete.

Manga behemoth Viz Media has released the final volume of the adorable seinen manga Tiger and Bunny. It’s known for its great sense of humor and its great use of flashback moments in the story.

Volume nine, the final volume, does a great job of wrapping things up. We won’t get into the story that much but it does involve romance and it turns television shows into something of commentary on modern day life.

Now is the perfect time to read the entire series!
