Poor show, is funny, but not good enough to ppl be racing over to post its information thread, so I made it anyways. : P

its scatological premise is pretty much a Japanese children common gag. lol

The ED is super-cute though. (Not so much the song as the animated sequence. I don't much like "toilet humor" but the use of plunger as arrow appealed to me, and the whole scrolling game look was delightful.)

I'm not sure I'll stick with it, but the idea presented of "would you rather be a good-looking sleaze or an ugly do-gooder" isn't without merit.

Wow, I thought tons of people would have been on this, I really liked that first episode! Obviously it is pretty dumb, and that is kinda what its supposed to be. I guess I like dumb humor The animation and coloring is solid and the humor is quick enough that you never really get bored. The fact that it is only 10 minutes long actually kinda sucks, I definitely want more of this, but I also think if they were the full 20 minute long episodes, the jokes might be a bit stale.

Aw well, I am excited for the next episode! With his trusty sandal at hand, what kinds of villains will he strike down next?

Old Man's transformation reminds me of Serinuma this season, except in reverse. Will be intriguing to see why he's a Hero in that particular form, and if he can go back to normal when not doing Hero work. I'm liking the spirited daughter.

To Be Hero EP 1“First Day as a Superhero”

That was insane but liked . A parody of One Punch Man / Kill La Kill / Panty and Stocking meets Excel Saga.

That ED song ? "Ai ni Koiyo" by BRATS and segment was cool !

Tried this one on a whim, and ... it's crazy. I love it. The animation is all over the place, but it's colorful, it's constantly moving, and the sight gags just don't stop.

This show continues to push the limits of absurdity, having already gone literal with the toilet humor. Pleasantly warm, all together.

Eh, think this is gonna go in the bucket. Dunno why. I usually like dumb funny (I'm probably one of the few actually watching Heybot), but this just isn't clicking for me.

To Be Hero EP 3“Third Day as a Superhero"A Leader Really Must"”

That was great very funny / insane short !

How many homages can you do in 11 mins Assassination Classroom / Transformers / Ritchie Rich ( was a popular comic book ) This like Space Patrol Luluco / One Punch / Excel Saga / Panty and Stocking all put together!
