From 1968-1971 with 14 volumes of manga
And 1969-1971 with 105 complete episodes
Quote:
In the manga and anime, Tiger Mask (whose real name was Naoto Date) was a feared heel wrestler in America who was extremely vicious in the ring. However, he became a face after returning to Japan when a young boy said that he wanted to be a villain like Tiger Mask when he grew up. The boy resided in an orphanage, the same one that Tiger Mask grew up in during his childhood. Feeling that he did not want the boy to idolize a villain, Tiger was inspired to be a heroic wrestler.

The main antagonist in the manga and anime was Tiger's Cave, a mysterious organization that trained young people to be villainous heel wrestlers on the condition that they gave half of their earnings to the organization. Tiger Mask was once a member of Tiger's Cave under the name "Yellow Devil", but no longer wanted anything to do with them, instead donating his money to the orphanage. This infuriated the leader of the organization and he sent numerous assassins, including other professional wrestlers, to punish him.

From 1981-1982 in the anime series with 33 episodes
and 1981 and ongoing or so it says on the site I am seeing it from.
Quote:
Naoto the previous main character of Tiger Mask died while saving a child. The story begins with a new opponent called "Outer Space Mask" who bullies his way into the ring without representing any wrestling federation. Tatsuo Aku, once an orphan child from the "house of the children", was a fan of Naoto. He would put on his old hero's mask to become the new Tiger Mask.





And the reason why I put this topic here is cause maybe one of us wrestling fans have seen or heard of this anime? Did anyone even know this existed? And btw it kind of sucks cause it only had a arabic dubbing DVD release so no one probably has seen this.

But isn't interesting that the whole Tiger Mask gimmick began with an anime and its Tiger Mask has become such a well known wrestler in Japan. There have been 4 or 5 and I say 5 cause there is a wrestler that did the Tiger Mask character but only in Korea.

Yeah But I think this is different there were different Tiger Mask's cause the previous one either died or retired or something. Suicide in TNA is just a character to give another wrestler that can't fit into the storyline right now or something idk all I know is there have been at least 2 or 3 different wrestlers who were Suicide.

I know I said 2 or 3 guys and I knew Daniels was one of them I just couldn't remember the other person. But to me the Tiger Mask character is different then the Suicide character cause to me Kaz and Daniels were only Suicide so they could wrestle for TNA cause I bet at the times they were in the costume they had no room for them in the storyline.

Well IDK if he does or doesnt but Suicide hasn't been on TNA since Homicide stole his costume and claiming to know who Suicide was.
