I'm getting vibes from past super hero movies, it even reminded me of Jingle All the Way in a way.

The episode was fantastic and the setting looks very interesting. Can't wait to watch more.

This was a barrel of fun. I'll definitely be watching the rest.

I mean let's be realistic here, the whole set up is pretty cliched- -obviously the main character is going to miss his daughter's ice skating thing (or whatever it was), the producer will turn out to be evil, eventually the protagonist will convince the rest of the heroes to cast off their corporate shackles and go save the day......

And you know what, I'm fine with that. Sometimes cliches become that way for a reason.

(Also the gay stereotype guy is a bit unfortunate. He seemed really awesome when he came on screen at first, but the second he started talking I was rolling my eyes.)

This sums up my feelings exactly, fun if a little flawed. I'll definitely be watching the next episode.

I think Okama are a stereotype even within Japan and seem increasingly popular in anime of late.

I wasn’t really expecting all that much but I ended up really enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Yes the plot seems a little predictable at places, but it has a good cast of characters and an interesting premise which I liked. It looks like it’s going to be a fun show so I will definitely continue watching Smile
