THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This turned out to be more interesting than I thought it would be. They basically turned a hero's work into a type of contest or sport. Kotetsu is a pretty entertaining main character too and the other heroes don't seem that bad either.

Well I think I'll check out a few other shows before deciding whether to follow this or not. I mainly only watched the first episode because I didn't want to do my homework anyway >.>

It's product placement, the anime :3

With that being said, it's not that terrible in actuality. Apart from the dodgy cell shaded CGI, it's well animated. It's actually quite funny, a semi mix of The Incredibles and Death Race of all things.

Surprisingly good.

There's going to be bromance and older guys victimized by capitalism? I'm in. As long as the 'bunny' dude doesn't hog the glory.

For a first episode it was pretty good, but the first half was very very first episode-ish.. because of aaaalll of those intros. I think the next episode will really establish the feel of the rest of the anime, because right now it can go any way.

That was a pretty kickass first episode. The part with Kotetsu buying 10 of his own card sealed the deal for me.

I thought the sponsorship thing would have been more annoying than it actually ended up being. As it was, it works with the themes the show is going for.

Pretty good first episode, yeah. Hopefully I'll have time to cram this into my anime schedule, lot of shows to keep track of this season.

Pretty good! Kotetsu seems like an interesting main character. Barnaby is... Well, his hair at least is a little too disco era for me.

Really wasn't expecting it to be so good. Definitely had a Incredibles feel to it. I love the ED song, very catchy....Look forward to this series

Based on the trailer, I wasn't expecting to get any kind of serious story here, so it was pleasant surprise. It's a fun concept and it was executed well. I'll be following this one.

Truthfully, the only reason I'm watching this show is because Minako Kotobuki is in it, lol. But I'm hoping it's going to turn out good.

I decided to watch the hulu stream, since I don't think this show is worth downloading. dem ads. Being legal hurts.

I don't mind the product placement in the show, it's kind of funny. And the super heroes of this city must really suck if they need that many to get 3 robbers.

Hnnngh dat Minako Kotobuki voice for Blue Rose. Seems like this will be a fun role for her. The character also gets an insert song...wonder when the single for that will be released.

Tiger is cool, but I already hate that partner guy. Hope he doesn't hog too much of the show.

Great start! Its quite unexpected to have a guy guy pair. I personally prefer a guy gurl pair but it looks promissing =)

Really nice start.
Found the whole "heroes being sponsored by big corporations" to be quite funny.

Can't say much that hasn't already been said. Kotetsu is a really intriguing character, and the concept is really novel. The CGI was a bit disappointing, I'll admit, but not anywhere close to making me dislike the show. I really hope that they explore the dichotomy of corporate sponsorship with heroic duty.

Actually, I'm having flashbacks to Captain Amazing from Mystery Men. I wonder...

I like the somewhat old-school drawing style.

Well, I'm definitely going to need to watch more episodes of this before I decide whether I like it or not It could really go either way at this point.
