Synopsis

For Uncle, a lecherous but handsome toilet designer, it is just an ordinary day of neglecting his duties as a single parent to hit on women and talk about his "superpower": his ability to tell a lady's hip size at a glance. But when he is sucked down into a toilet, the Space Peace Republic Alliance Hero Committee gives him real superpowers, and he becomes the hero of Earth. There is only one problem—he has become an ugly, unrecognizable fatty who is unable to reveal his real identity.

Uncle's beloved daughter Min-chan does not believe that such a vulgar fatty could be her father, and casts him out of his own home. Distraught and homeless, he joins up with his perverted neighbor Yamada-san, a small man with a fondness for streaking, and sets out to convince Min-chan that he is her father.

Full of sexual innuendo and slapstick humor, To Be Hero follows Uncle as he befriends bizarre allies and combats even more bizarre foes, fighting for the future of earth against aliens and—more importantly—his future with his daughter.

*** General Points ***
At 11 minutes an episode for 12 episodes, this show ends up being roughly the length of a movie.

From the audacious (and perverse) characters and sometimes immature humor it isn't a show for everyone, but if by episode 4 you haven't been repulsed, then you will most likely continue to enjoy the show.

By far, the greatest part about this show is the ending theme song, which is infinitely catchy. I would recommend spending the 1 minute of life on youtubing it. Even if you have no intention of watching the show it would be a pity to pass up that ...

To Be Hero is a very interesting anime. A lot of people will be turned off from this show because of the flavor of the humor, the extremely weird/out there plot/premise, and the unattractiveness of many of the character designs. I truly believe there's something special here though.

Even though this show is a comedy, and I would agree comedy is the best genre to put it in, the comedy is not the reason I think so highly of this show and the comedy is not the reason I would recommend this show. You will know pretty quickly if the humor in this show is for ...

This is my first time writing a review and to be honest i enjoyed this anime it was really funny and the characters were really funny even if they had like 1 minute of screen time.However the ending to this anime was quite confusing (spoiler incoming) like when they said it was actually a other universe or something i was really confused but overall i really enjoyed this anime and looked forward to every next episode with full hype. I also think they should have added a little more episodes like 3 or 2 more but it did end with a fantastic but confusing ...
