Synopsis

Hiroya Matsumoto, hoping to become a great employee as his late father, has just been hired at Raito (Right) Trading Company. Little does he know that he has been recruited for a very mysterious department within the company - the Special Duty Combat Unit, known as SHINESMAN. Their purpose, to fight the terrible (often times hilarious) alien forces that threaten the earth.

Like most corporate employees, Matsumoto still has meetings to attend and deadlines to meet. But when the Shinesman rage war against the alien race from Planet Voice, led by their Prince Sasaki, Matsumoto and his co-workers don their office-coloured comat Pro-suits and become: Shinesman Red, Sepia, Salmon Pink, Grey, and Moss Green.

If you thought you'd seen it all in Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, or even Dynaman, wait until you take a look at the zaney but corporate world of SHINESMAN!

Let me start off by saying that the core of this anime feels like a shota romance.
It's not pornographic, but the main couple of the story is a bishounen and his kid brother. The main guy would do anything for this kid and he is his sole interest, you might say it's pretty romantic.

Other than those two there are way too many characters which hardly have any character to them, most of them get no development or get half a story at best and holds no real weight in the show as a whole.

The only developed characters in the ova are the main guy, his read more
