Synopsis

Joey is an orphan living with his grandmother in Center City on the West Coast of the United States of America. Joey, like any other boy his age, is interested in robots and gadgets and dreams about owning a particular toy robot called a Heybo. Heybos have very advanced mechanisms and controls but with great mechanisms comes great price; the robot is too expensive for Joey, whose only source of income is a part-time job at a restaurant and he needs that money to help support himself and his grandmother.

One day, when Joey is on his way home from school, he happens upon a couple of bullies who are playing around with a Heybo. Long story short, the bullies manage to get the robot run over by a car and Joey retrieves the wreckage from a trash can. Once home, Joey fixes the robot and names it Heroman. Later that night, a thunderstorm results in Heroman getting wet and, improbably, struck by lightning. The result is amazing, Heroman grows massive in size, gets emblazoned with the colors of the American flag and responds to Joey's commands!

At the same time in space, an alien race called the Skrugg is preparing an invasion of Earth. Now it's up to Joey and Heroman to save Earth!

Over the years there have been several attempts at merging Eastern manga and anime with Western comics and cartoons. Batman had two manga outings (Child of Dreams and Death Mask), while the X-Men saw their manga counterparts run straight into a wall. Spiderman and The Hulk made appearances as early as 1970, and many people already know about the promised anime adaptations of several well known titles (Wolverine, X-Men, Iron Man, etc).

The problem is that all of the attempts thus far have not been as successful as one might hope or expect. One of the reasons for this is because the titles that have been read more

Okay guys, let's talk about HEROMAN, the current front runner for anime of the goddamned decade.

So one day Stan Lee got up and said "I bet I can put those crazy Japanese to work!"
And so he did.

The result is HEROMAN, a throwback to old comic books, Saturday morning cartoons, teenage superhero shows and the 90's in general with glorious HD Bones animation. This shit is so nostalgic that when the overly elaborate commercial bumpers showed up I literally heard "Heroman will be right back after these messages!". This series is also most likely the most American(superior) anime ever produced. Taking place in CENTER CITY, CALIFORNIA, read more

This is a Stan Lee production in full. But it is severely lacking in many areas. The main protagonist, Joey, is a whiny kid who wears his pants to tight and relies heavily on his "cool" friend, Psy.

The robot, the titular Heroman, is disappointing. It looks like a direct tip-off of the Michelin man and whatever motion capture they used for the running of the thing is strange looking. Most of the time is spent listening to Joey's angst between shouting really uninspired attack names at the robot, which has to ask permission from the kid to to attacks read more

Heroman is a weird one. I'm not talking about the actual content since I always write these opening paragraphs before watching the series or film. No, I'm referring to the fact that it was written by Smiling Stan Lee. Yes, the same one who was President and CEO of the United States' Marvel Comics back before they lost their damn minds and made a lot of insanely stupid decisions like Jubilee becoming a vampire, Nightcrawler becoming half demon, Polaris being retconned as Magneto's daughter, Speedball becoming Penance and if I keep listing these we'll be here for tens of thousands of words. Anyway, Stan Lee read more
