    Abstract

    Masculinity issues are rarely discussed in Indonesia since the society considers masculinity is absolute and cannot be changed. Although in fact, both femininity and masculinity are constructed by the communitys identity. This study will address the issue of masculinity represented by the characters in Tiger and Bunny anime and the myths behind the show. The method used is based on the qualitative interpretative models of Roland Barthes semiotic as a form of a sign systems which are divided into denotation and connotation that make up the myth that produces meaning. Data were collected by observing scenes in Tiger and Bunny that are considered to be capable of representing the masculine figure. The elements of anime digested by researchers as interpretan based on the experience gained from social interaction as a member of specified society/culture. From the research, it can be concluded that in Tiger and Bunny, male figure represents the image of a man who is totally different with traditional masculinity. It is assumed that a character in Tiger and Bunny shows a new construction of a masculinity, or even a new kind of gender.
