HE WILL SAVE US!! ASTRO FIGHTER SUNRED!!!

Since Link did it, I may as well put in my word for this show, too.

ASTRO FIGHTER SUNRED (Tentai Senshi Sunred for the Wapanese, 天体戦士サンレッド for the Japanese) is an epic of tale of good against evil set against the backdrop of modern Japan. The mighty hero Sunred has been charged with the brutal task of taking on the relentless Florsheim army as they attempt to rule the world. It is a gripping tale of love, honour and sacrifice. WILL SUNRED SURVIVE?? Only God knows…

But that’s total bullshit. Sunred is comedy very much in the vein of Gag Manga Biyori, Cromartie Highschool, Ippatsu Kiki Musume or Colorful. The main joke here is “super heroes and super villains doing very mundane things.” I’ve only seen three episodes, but I’m pretty sure not much will change. That’s fine though. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the same joke for 26 episodes, and I haven’t grown tired of that yet! So long as Sunred’s execution says solid, I’ll keep watching.

The animation is fast and cheap, which is expected from a production such as this one. Honestly, if the animation was good it’d be less funny. Shows like these are kind of like the Japan equivalent of, I don’t know, Aqua Teen Hunger Force? Some other bad William’s Street show? But yeah, it’s like that but good.

Anyways, WATCH IT. You’ll be glad you did!

    Yeah, I could see Sunred and Detroit Metal City airing on Adult Swim or one of those other anime blocks easily, though they’d probably turn the former into random US pop culture references like Crayon Shin-chan.

  2. 3x as random says:

    Damn, no sign of ep7 in Chinese subs yet >.>

    WATCH IT. Even my friends was craving for it after I showed some of it in Chinese subs, although they didn’t understand any Chinese. That’s how good it is XD
