Also refreshing that the MC isn't a teenage kid.
Solid 1st ep, which made me interested enough to see some more eps.

Agreed! The MC being an adult with a child is a breathe of fresh air, IMO. Very solid first episode. Not many anime these days can say that. I will definitely keep watching this show. :D

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.

I wonder, how much did Pepsi Cola, paid the author to have it's name in the anime.

As others have said, this was not on my list of anime to watch this season. However, I watched it as I've already watched all the ones that I was planning to watch, and have already aired. Honestly, for the first 10 minutes, I was thinking how it looks nice, yet doesn't feel very appealing, but as more of Kotetsu's background/characteristics/etc were revealed, I really started to enjoy the show.
Also, this has the best ED song of all the ones aired this season, imho.

From the looks of it this is going to be a like it or hate it anime. I liked it. the main character kinda reminds me of Holland from Eureka seven. The animation gets kinda weird though.

Interesting start. Glad the product placement wasn't as bad as I thought. The pepsi commercial was pretty lol though. Totally got Karas vibes from this with the character designs.

For an advertising anime, it's not bad.

Yeah a lot better than expected for me too. It seems many share the same opinion. The main guy is sympathetic also.

The fact that this anime uses advertising in such way, while the story seems to show the bad side of capitalism, is interestingly contradictory and ironic.

This could be the sleeper hit of the season - even the year (if they don't stuff it up).

This reminds me of The Incredibles a little bit.

I love Kotetsu. I love how he is passively rebellious but as a middle aged man with no other career options, he doesn't push his luck too far.

I felt that this show is making fun of the western hero cartoon....

well anyway who cares, this Anime is fun to watch and that is what all important. So much unnecessary epic movement for such a normal criminal ......

"thankyou very much and also thankyou very much"

I sense the dark side of Agnes joubet ,I am expecting her to be the last boss of the show(since this anime is bout "advertising" anyway)

Kotetsu's new boss has best attitude in the anime and Kotetsu's English made my day

I feel like I shouldn't like this show on principle...but damn, that was good! The commercialized superhero premise is actually really interesting, and I love the character designs! Although I guess it's not that surprising since they probably had a higher than average budget with all that advertising...

Great episode. I hadn't expected much, but the concept and story of it was kind of interesting.
And, Heroes with sponsor's logo are really funny. Especially, Rock Bison's "Gyuukaku", that means... well, I love it!
I came to feel like going and eating some there!

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I've never really tried anything mecha before, and it almost turned me off when I read the description, but I'm certainly happy I decided to try it out. I'm already drawn to the main character and the others seem pretty interesting too. I'll be following this for now.

Far better than I thought it would be. First half was the usual action and introduction of characters. Once it settles down it really becomes so much more interesting.

The product placement makes so much sense for the sports-like hero contest. This is already a better hero show than all the Marvel/Madhouse shows... this is entertaining, has a good gimmick, and has interesting characters. All things the Marvel shows really lacked.

I really hope the show holds up this level of entertainment. I will certainly watch it as long as it does.

I expected it to be bad in a fun way, but it was actually pretty genuinely good.

I had to pause the video when they announced the new guy's power. "He's just like the other guy, but young". It was just so perfect. I was laughing for like ten minutes. I'd go to restart, and then it would strike me again how hilarious the situation was. Golden moment right there.

It's a product placement show about superheroism having been ruined by capitalism to the point that it's little more than a product placement show. I can't decide what I think of that. Its' central message contradicts its' central purpose. Is that ironic, or is it just hypocritical? Either way, I'm a fan of the dichotomy.

As someone who is also a fan of comic books & western animation in addition to anime & manga, I had a blast watching this. Like everyone else has been saying, it reminds me a lot of The Incredibles in that it's a well-made deconstruction of superheroes that manages to stay kid-friendly.

I gave it a 3 out of 5 because even though it was good it was too completely over the top by my standards. This could turn out good though who knows.

Didn't really know what to expect but thought it was a great episode. All the characters seem really interesting so far, plus a new take on the hero thing. It's actually a show where you compete for points? Cool. Seems like the new guy will be the "bunny" to Kotetsu's "tiger" ... huh. Felt kinda bad for him with that little kid and his daughter :3
I thought both the OP and ED were pretty good as well. The music really reminds me of a TV show lol XD

This was pretty interesting, I must say. I wasn’t expecting it to be as entertaining as it was. I like it quite a lot.

Kotetsu is such an endearing man. I think I felt something inside me break when the kid gave him his Wild Tiger card with a smile… only to say he was a Sky-High fan and he didn’t need it; I almost heard the sound of hopes being crushed.

I also enjoyed the big irony about being a Hero in this capitalist market.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

It was funny, spunky, lovely animation and color plus artwork, loving the superheroes, and I honestly didn't start watching this because 'Whhhhhhhat? The product placement is going to ruin it all!'. But, like other people said, it wasn't overly annoying or in-your-face. And, Blue Rose's insert song sounds nice already - I'll need to find it. Anyways, definitely going to continue this c':
