The story revolves around the Tama River area, based mostly in Kawasaki City Kanagawa where battles are fought between the evil organisation Florsheim and the ally of justice Sunred. The twist is that Sunred (referred to most characters familiar with him as Red-san) is a rough-talking, violent and rude hero while the villains of Florsheim (led by General Vamp) are for the most part polite, conscientious and easy-going.

Despite this, both sides still stay true to their roles, with Florsheim dedicated to destroying Sunred and taking over the world while Sun Red battles against them. Other evil organisations and heroes are also mentioned from time to time.

Each episode is divided into various shorts of varying length. Most of the humour comes from the interactions of the characters, especially the main trio of Sunred, his girlfriend Kayoko and General Vamp. Kayoko and Vamp, for example, get along very well and she occasionally consults him about housework or cooking. In contrast, she and Sunred often argue like a long married couple.

Do you want to watch a series that features heroic heroes, villainous villains and mind boggling fight scenes where every punch, kick or special move is lovingly crafted and animated? Are you looking for a show that has a gripping storyline where every twist and turn of the plot will leave you on the edge of your seat? Do you crave excitement, adventure, and a hero who can kick more arse than the combined might of Kenshiro, Goku, Ichigo, Naruto, and whoever else you'd care to name? If so, then Tentai Senshi Sunred is NOT the show for you.

On the other hand, if you want read more

"Tentai Senshi Sunred. This is the magnificent story of the conflict between good and evil that takes place in the city of Kawasaki."

Have you ever seen an anime where the villain comes over to the good guy's house for dinner? Where the villain asks the good guy to build a killer robot for him? Where the villain actually likes cooking more than world domination? No? Well, this is one.

Story 8/10:
This anime focusses on the villains as much as the hero(es). Monsters from the evil organisation Florsheim lead everyday lives with jobs at grocery stores or restaurants while The Hero, Red, is just slacking read more

This is definitely a great super hero anime parody!!! Astro Fighter Sunred is supposedly the magnificent story of the conflict between good & evil that takes place in the city of Kawasaki, however the true story is more about slice of life with super heroes & villains.

Being a parody of super sentai (power rangers) much of the show focuses a role reversal specifically the main hero & villain Sunred & General Vamp. Sunred whose is suppose to be the hero of this show is a jerk who doesn't take his job that seriously as he isn't in full costume, spends his time playing pachinko & read more

Tentai Senshi Sunred. Superhero of the ages. This is the story of the battle between good and evil that takes place within Kawasaki.

Let me just explain to you where I'm coming from before I start. I hate Japanese humor. I don't think it is funny, at all. But what surprised me is that I liked Sunred. The episodes are filled with good, clever writing, and humorous ideas, that while it rarely made me laugh out loud, gave me a nice smirk and a chuckle now and then. And that really surpassed all my expectations for the series.

This is more a slice of life about a read more

Both are crazy ass comedies
reportRecommended by Jazma - Add to favorites
Both shows take a familiar concept and turn it on its head, and both feature some very clever and subversive humour. The chances are that if you like one, then you'll like the other.

That said, Tentai Senshi Sunred may actually be easier to get in to because of the length of each episode and the length of the series.
Both are very crazy and with very comic moments.
Also the characters are different from the usual, with a combination of hero and villain, although Sunred's case is a casual hero style (as Hancock) while that Excel and Myatt are villains protagonists with heroic touches.
Both have many random.
Both have badass comedy and tokusatsu parody
Both have superhero's vs villains
Both Have comedy
Both share the same awesomeness
Tiger and bunny is more serious while sunred is hilarious
Both are good anime's that deserve more credit
Similar story about an unconventional hero, similar humor and a little social commentary in both but mainly off the wall anti hero antics.
