THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh no, Will's a Skrugg now. I totally didn't see that coming at all [/sarcasm]

-How the hell are they going to stop those spheres? Bombing doesn't work, Heroman doesn't work, and they shoot out spikes if you get too close to them. Oh and there's freaking five of them.

-As Macross teaches us, music solves everything....or at least when combined with wave amplification. Speaking of which, I appreciate that Psy is doing something even though he's on crutches and all but I must say, I don't know how he's holding himself up on that board and carrying the guitar at the same time.

-These aliens are probably the most competent I've seen in anime.

Cool episode but I facepalmed when I saw Lina walking into the scene. Come on, really? She's just dieing for some time with Joey and apparently she's also lucky she has Psy for that "double filling" so to speak.

It is good that Heroman doesn't seem that overpowered as before or just that the difficulty amped up to match him. Brings hope for epic struggles later on.

The preview looks especially umai.

I am eating up all of this action despite my feelings for this show.
I'm betting that Will will betray the Skrugg.

And whenever Denton has the spotlight, it's gold.
The guitar amp weapon is rad.

Also, if Joey can replace parts for Heroman like that in a snap..
Can't he just make an uber-cool weapon that turns huge too?

WHAT WILL HEROMAN DO NEXT!?

Nice episode. Love the Psy part with his board and the guitar. Oh and Lina joins the group^^

And I didn't see that coming, Will and Nick turn into a skrugg. This is what happen when you're jealous of someone just because he got the spotlight and you try to be a retard instead of a hero and enter the enemy territory. Gosh stupid people

For Will & Nick ? It's was predicted if you saw the preview of episode 4 in episode 3. ^^

This is the first show in a very long time I'm going to drop. Predictable, boring, uninspired, uninspiring, flat, shallow, unexciting, cliché garbage. Doesn't even deliver cheesy fun.

Blech.

Will is Skrugg, from the moment I first saw his face, well I also expected him to be a Skurgg snack by now too. Atleast he's fighting better, but his mom should just pop up out and wack him on the head with a news paper. "Will you little bug get out of there and help your sister".
"Ol righ mah." done end of story seriously.
When doc wipps out that generator I thought they were doing a pickachu power up on H? Is Joey seriously generating power for all the computers, really impossible. Ah shouldn't hero man be doing that. If doc put amps on H, that would have been smart, and cool to watch. There all going to be Skrugged at this rate.

This is exactly my sentiments. Although, this entire season I've been dropping shows...

Just spiffy!

-They're showing a lot of casualties now, though off-screen.

-Guitar? When did he make it? Anyway, effective but kinda dumb. That professor is still funny. Let's see the killer bass next week.

-Seriously, Lina walking in broad daylight? How stupid can she get? This is going to test my patience.

-I knew that they'll be the assassins but I think it's too early. How will this turn out? I was hoping at least a few more episodes before they show them but meh, they're there.

-Enemy's getting relentless. Heroman is getting pawned. I bet they're going to use some big powerup to beat them all but it seems it's not yet next episode. I like that they're not the strong powerful hero but I hope they don't get pushed around for long.

-A lot of people are dropping this show now...

Wow, this is so bad...

I think I'm going to put this on hold until we know how many episodes there'll be. If it's 13, I'll finish it, if it's 26, I don't know and if it's more, I'll drop it.

If Stan Lee is writing this shit and didn't just come up with the general idea, he needs to retire.

Yeah if it's more than 13 it would become really hard to watch.



But despite the general disappointment i actually found this episode kind of better than the last two.
It at least had some action and showed the Aliens can fight back too. Also it showed that people evacuate and there still is an army around.

Human cockroach wasn't something i ever dreamed of seeing but at least it explains why it acted like Bruce Lee. I don't imagine the other Aliens watch martial art movies.

The problem with this show it's that considering it's concept is cartoonish and kind of childish, it should have embraced that along with fast rhythm, more crazy fighting scenes and some humor. But the rhythm is generally slow, humor is bad or non existing, the fighting scenes not intense and in general it's like it tries to be serious when it's obviously impossible based on the concept is build on, with the resold of becoming boring and slow when it could have been a lot more fun even if it would mean throwing away any concept of sensibility.
I mean it already isn't sensible as it is and is definitely not a mature show, so throw away any pretentious bullshit and let's have some fun people.

You know, I have no idea what it is. Obviously this is a bad show. And while that is technically true... somehow, I still find myself enjoying it.

...Could just be that the whole guitar thing was pretty cool, though.

I have to say I enjoy this episode more than the last few. The guitar as a weapon thing was pretty cool I guess *shrugs* what I do want is one of those boards Psy uses. Will becoming a Skrugg was predictable yes but at least it added something to the anime other than Heroman pounding on endless Skrugg which he actually didn't do to much of in this episode and seriously Lina randomly showing up was a bit out there considering the whole city's been smashed up and shes just wandering around. Well at least having her back now gives it some drama. I actually find myself looking forward to next weeks episode...surprising yes I know.

I think everyone (generalizing here) is basically watching this for the cheesy fun it provides. Obviously the target audience would not be on this website in the first place.
First few episodes were fine because it was fun to poke holes in and it was just that ridiculous, but the novelty of it doesn't last for very long. Now, even more so after reading all the negative comments, don't think i can continue watching this anime much longer.
It actually wasn't that bad because Joey and Psy actually had a plan. By the way, did i mention that they are trying too hard to include a disabled person? I fully support trying to include him but it just doesn't work when your running around. I am sure a lot of people would like one of those scooter things he is riding.

I'm pretty sure the anime was made to be like this. It's supposed to be "crappy". You're not supposed to expect anything from it.

"if a Japanese person did it". Come on now. What's with that logic?

Not as well put as I'd say it but I agree, what is with people saying it's so bad and dropping it because Will became a Skrugg? In all honesty I didn't predict that myself and was pleasantly surprised. I love this show and am enjoying the hell out of it, it's fun, which is what it's supposed to be. It isn't trying to be the smartest or "deepest" anime which is what everyone seems to be judging it as. It reminds me a lot of TTGL which everyone else seems to love. A lot of "anime fans" seem to be such hardasses and can't enjoy themselves and just because one little "prediction" came true the show is automatically bad, no, that just means you thought the same idea as the developers. Turn off your criticism and enjoy something for once people. You might be surprised at how much fun you can have. Plus the anime isn't even close to finished and people are already scoring it lowly, I know plenty of anime that don't get off to amazing starts but finish fantastically.

I don't understand all the hatred this show is getting. If you don't enjoy it, than drop it already.

I started watching it with no high expectations. I just allow myself to sit back and enjoy.

It's a simple but well done show, I'm satisfied so far. I also believe it might get better later, surprising a lot of people.

Not a bad episode, things didn't really pick up until very near the end. Well, Will wanted power & he got it. Cockroach power. That moron. He should've been a Street Fighter... or a Denver Bronco.

yeah . Exactly. . . I couldn't have explained it any better .
I don't rate anime after watchin 4 to 5 episodes . . I rate them after i watch around 15 episodes or so . My favourite show , fullmetal alchemist brotherhood , started miserably , to be honest . . . But now , has developed into a masterpiece . . (for me) . . . I don't think heroman will ever be as good as brotherhood for me , but it is a good show . . . And has every right to be given a few more chances :)

I really hope that this show will pickup a bit since atm it's a bit illogical and all that stuff. I mean I wouldn't mind illogical if it had something else, like better pacing. But anyways I hope this'll get better cause that animation is just too sweet to be wasted.

I think people were expecting this to be a Bones-flavoured Gurren-Lagann -- aka, an over the top thrill ride from the get go -- when it's actually closer to a throw back to the older shows like GaoGaiGar or Tetsujin-28. Heroman's pretty honest in it's nature as an homage to that kind of show, and it's nice to see a show that's not bogged down in an excess of plot threads. It's a kid and his big giant robot kicking the crap out of an unusually competent antagonist. What else does it need?

Giant robot anime hasn't been unpredictable/innovative since '95... and even then that's bit of a stretch.

I mean, It's well made and all, but it gets amazingly boring ^^

I'll give it a couple more eps though.

Wait, why did I not see that coming? I'm usually the first guy to spoil the ending to something without knowing the ending. I kind of thought Will was going to get killed and then shown to Joey or something. This is Japan after all....
