Tentai Senshi Sunred! The story of a superhero, the mighty Sunred defending Kawasaki from the evil organization Florsheim!

Basically a satirical take on the Japanese superhero genre, the show is more of a comedic slice of life than a superhero franchise. Sunred is basically your typical jerk, egoistical, rude and selfish... despite being a hero of justice. He's jobless, lives off the graces of his girlfriend and generally spends most of his time playing pachinko or lazing around at home like a bum. He almost never wears his battle costume.... except for his helmet which is perpetually on. God knows just how he smokes through that. All other heroes seem to have perpetually on helmets as well....

Florsheim however, despite being an EVIL ORGANIZATION whose goal is WORLD DOMINATION, is like a society of perfect upstanding citizens, who abide by the law, are nice to people unconditionally..... they are just super nice. And the only evil thing they ever do is attempt to take out Sunred. And even so they do it in a nice way, they schedule times with him and arrange times for their fights so its convenient. And Sunred promptly takes them out with a punch to the face, gives them a lecture on just how to be villains and how not to cause people trouble and stuff like that. When they aren't being nice, they are doing part time jobs and acting like this big happy family. Theres often all these family drama like moments within the organization. The leader of the Kawasaki division which is most often shown since thats where the show takes place and thats where Sunred lives, GENERAL VAMP is like a typical nice old man. A gentle grandfatherly.... even grandmotherly.... type. He runs a cooking show in the first season, showing quick and easy recipes to make. He's also good friends with Sunred's girlfriend, Kayoko Uchida. Who is a fan of Usacots, the leader of the ANIMAL SOLDIERs of Florsheim... who are basically a troop of stuffed toys that are irresistibly cute.

You get amusing episodes like Vamp getting his men together to help Sunred and Kayoko move into a new house, monsters being late for fights due to part time jobs and all these issues of life they all go through. Even when the show is not being exactly funny or anything.... it just has this really homely feeling to it. Like watching a family sitcom or something. And its pretty funny when Kayoko asks Sunred to be nicer to Florsheim, even though they are after his head. Or when both sides chastise each other, "And you call yourself a hero of justice...." or "And you call yourself an evil organization?!!" and stuff. Maybe Florsheim might achieve World Domination through their general niceness.... the world might even become a better place!

The episodes are fairly short, half the time of a basic anime episode usually. Each episode is usually composed out of various short stories.... some just being short gags with only a few lines. Although theres often one long-ish story that spans the majority of the episode. Season 1 has finished airing with 26 episodes and the 2nd season is currently underway.

Very interesting. Reminds me a bit of Gedô Otome-tai... with the "evil" guys being too nice to achieve any evil goal, and a rather rough team of "good" heroes.
