Parody action manga inspired 2 TV anime series in 2008-2010

This year's 24th issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine revealed on Friday that Makoto Kubota's Tentai Senshi Sunred manga will end in the magazine's first 2015 issue on December 19.

The story revolves around the hero Sunred's battles against General Vamp and his shadowy group of minions in a spoof of classic Japanese anime and live-action special-effects shows. Kubota launched the manga in 2005, and Square Enix shipped the 19th compiled volume in July. The manga was nominated for the 15th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2011.

Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation, Danganronpa The Animation, Assassination Classroom) and AIC A.S.T.A. adapted the manga into two television anime series in 2008 and 2009-2010, respectively. The Nico Nico Douga video-sharing website streamed the first series as it aired.
