The official website for Haoliner Animation League's To Be HERO has been launched, and announced that it will begin its broadcast on on October 5, via Tokyo MX at 6:30 p.m., after the broadcast of the previously announced Cheating Craft. It is an original gag anime that supervised by Shinichi Watanabe. The episodes will have a run-time of nine minutes.

Synopsis
Our main character, Ossan, is a no-good father with messy appearance even though he looks nice, and decorates restrooms. He is a divorced, single-dad and lives with his daughter Min-chan, who is good at both studying and sport. One day, Ossan has been sucked into the toilet that he finished using, and becomes a hero to save the Earth! The price for his power is that he has lost his ikemen appearance and becomes a fat person!! Ossan’s battle to protect the Earth and Min-chan has begun…

Cast
Ossan: Kenjirou Tsuda (K)
Min: Moa Tsukino (From Kamen Joshi)

Ah that premise...

One thing to realize though is that we are getting more and more anime from Haoliner Animation League these days including this season.

I know this will sound stupid from me, but... the cover and the synopsis alone makes me feel like a complete retard with the description and the artstyle.

seems like you havent read this synopsis yet.

"Twintails: the glory of all mankind—or at least that is what first-year high school student Souji Mitsuka believes. At school, Souji spends most of his time daydreaming and rating girls' twintails, even going as far as creating a club dedicated to the hairstyle. His obsession does not go unnoticed, however; when monsters from outer space attack Earth and claim the world's twintails for themselves, a strange woman named Twoearle enlists Souji to fight back using twintails of his own!"

from what I gather the pv only shows madhouse name for parody purposes, they aren't actually doing this (madhouse website doesn't have this on their work profile either) :P I hope they had permission, lest I miss out on this masterpiece on copyright issues :D
Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

Now take a look at Berserk (2016).

YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION TO CRY.

@JetNoir
i think they credited them because from PV, it seriously look like plagiarism... but at least, they go all out...

Yes, Haoliners has made and released the 1st episode about 1 year ago, and I though they had dropped this anime.
