>>; Kamen Rider Stronger definitely isn't Sentai. And robot is misleading, though not as false. "Cyborg" would be much more like it.

Was 17 the episode where San and Akeno have the sword duel in school, and Rei and Asuka are standing in the group of students watching at the end, or was that episode 16?

I think that might've been Episode 15.

[EDIT] Nevermind, it's 16.

I guess I have to re-watch that one...

I guess I am surprised then that Hayate makes it onto the airwaves regularly with all the Gundam stuff in it...

They are talking about a Rebroadcast.

And 17 is where you meet Akeno's 'gang' I bet the gang members look too much like other anime.

Isn't the whole series just one big story with a bunch of mixed in parodies?All the jokes seem to have been ok before. Doesn't Japan have something along the lines of the freedom of expression like when MadTV and Saturday Night Live make fun of a nunch of TV series and celebrities?

Woops I was thinking of Hayate the Combat Butler, but wouldn't this case still fall under the parody category?

TMOHS is hardly the first series to do it... plenty of series have done it before take, say, Excel Saga for example.

I'm not supprised in regards to the show having refrences to other chracters and shows (Nagasumi has perviously been "Bulked up" To look like he's been drawn by Buronson) but I'm amazed someone called nonsence on them.

Especaily as Hayate the Combat Butler, which is a badly edited pille of crap of an adaptaion, got away with more blantant stuff.
