This week for Manga Monday I’ve got another Quick Review! It’s Hero Company by Shimamoto Kazuhiko!

Plot Synopsis: “A hero” is a job that in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self sacrifice. Would you like to work as such a hero in our company? You may transform, manipulate a huge robot or fight as a squad. Shall we realize your dream in our “Hero Company”?!

Plot: This first chapter that I reviewed is the introduction to the concept of the Hero Company itself and it’s quite funny. It makes a job that we dreamt about as a kid and totally ruins that image for us. It makes the heroes look like normal businessmen, and businesswomen, who are in it purely for the money just like most people who work for a living rather than doing what they love as a job.

Characters: We don’t get introduced to any specific characters in this first chapter, so I’m going to pass over this section this time around.

Art: The art is awesome and has a truly classic Manga feeling, in fact it reminds me the most of Cyborg 00-9 in terms of Art. So I’m definitely going to keep reading this series if it keeps up the amazing artwork.

Overall: This looks to be a truly amazing series that pokes fun at childhood dreams.

For those who like: Comedy, Crushed Dreams, Action, Mecha, Excellent Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
