Both Moyoko Anno and Hideaki Anno (co-founder of Gainax now resigned]) are well versed in the manga and anime industry and the anime is a funny parody of their marriage and lots of animes!

That would be Ideon



That lame segment is a great history of anime and TV superheroes


Space Runaway Ideon Wikipedia

Space Runaway Ideon (伝説巨神イデオン Densetsu Kyojin Ideon?, lit. Legendary Giant God Ideon, also The Ideon) is a 1980 anime television series produced by Sunrise, created and directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, produced immediately following his most famous work, Mobile Suit Gundam. It first premiered on TV Tokyo from 1980 to 1981, followed by two feature films in 1982, and was later broadcast in Japan by the satellite TV network Animax from September 2006.

Its mechanical designs were created by Yuichi Higuchi at Studio Submarine. The television series credited only the design studio, while Higuchi received full credit for the subsequent films. The characters were designed by Tomonori Kogawa. The series won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize for the second half of 1980

Influence

The influence of Ideon on Japanese animation, despite its rough beginnings and infamous ending, has been considerable. At one time it was rated #10 among the greatest anime series as compiled by famous anime magazine Animage (counting popularity, influence, and opinion). On the other hand, the series has never been very popular, even among Japanese mecha fans.

Space Runaway Ideon is a predecessor-of-sorts to Hideaki Anno's Neon Genesis Evangelion and deals with many of the same issues. The Neon Genesis Evangelion series also ends in a similar fashion, with two theatrical releases: the first part (Death) being composed largely of clips from the already-released episodes, and the second part (Rebirth/The End of Evangelion) made up of new animation devolving into apocalyptic territory much like that of Be Invoked, right down to overtones of rebirth. However, unlike Ideon, The End of Evangelion, actually had survivors at the end of the movie, unlike Ideon's ending in Be Invoked, where everyone dies and turn into spirits.

In many ways, Ideon was a first of its kind. It has been considered to be the prototype of the modern dark and twisted science fiction anime such as the above-mentioned Neon Genesis Evangelion, Akira and Tomino's own bleak Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Although it is debatable as Mobile Suit Gundam is often considered the first anime to show a truly grittier side of science fiction, Ideon undeniably has a very distinct presentation and plot style which had never been seen before, specifically with the series' emphasis on making the audience feel for the characters and their struggle against a hopeless scenario as opposed to just watching the Ideon do battle or feeling for the overall theme.

Spectreman Wikipedia

Spectreman (スペクトルマン Supekutoruman?) is the name and title superhero of a tokusatsu sci-fi TV series. Produced by P Productions and created by producer Souji Ushio, this series aired on Fuji TV from January 2, 1971 to March 25, 1972 with a total of 63 episodes (divided into three segments), not counting the pre-series pilot episode. This was the first major superhero show of the 1970s.

Golden Bat Wikipedia

Ōgon Bat (黄金 バット Ōgon Batto?, lit. "Golden Bat") is a seminal Japanese superhero created by writer Ichiro Suzuki and illustrator Takeo Nagamatsu in 1930. Ōgon Bat is considered to be the first Japanese superhero.

The character made his debut in Kamishibai, a traveling show in which a sequence of pictures is narrated by a storyteller. He was popular enough to survive the decline of Kamishibai following World War II and was eventually translated into manga and anime form.

A live action movie, Ôgon bat: Matenrô no kaijin, was released in 1950,followed by another in 1966, simply titled Ôgon batto, and starring Sonny Chiba. A 52 episode anime series was produced the following year, followed by another film, Ôgon Batto ga yattekuru in 1972.

I didn't bother watching this, but I did recently finish reading the manga--which I thought was quite funny and very well-done.

I can't really imagine it translating all that well to anime though, since so much of what was funny was the narrative commentary more than anything actually happening--so it was the how it was described that was amusing.
