Tentai Senshi Sun Red (天体戦士サンレッド Tentai Senshi Sanreddo ?, Astro Fighter Sun Red) is a Japanese manga created by Makoto Kubota. It started serialization on Square Enix's seinen manga magazine Young Gangan on August 25, 2005. An anime adaptation produced by AIC A.S.T.A. aired from October 3, 2008 to March 27, 2009 in Japan. The second season of the anime started airing on October 3, 2009. Each manga chapter and anime episode is referred to as a FIGHT.

Contents

Plot

The story revolves around the Tama River area, based mostly in Kawasaki City Kanagawa where battles are fought between the evil organisation Florsheim and the ally of justice Sun Red. The twist is that Sun Red (referred to most characters familiar with him as simply 'Red') is a rough-talking, violent and rude hero while the villains of Florsheim (led by General Vampu) are for the most part polite, conscientious and easy-going.

Despite this, both sides still stay true to their roles, with Florsheim dedicated to destroying Sun Red and taking over the world while Sun Red battles against them. Other evil organisations and heroes are also mentioned from time to time.

Each episode is divided into various shorts of varying length. Most of the humour comes from the interactions of the characters, especially the main trio of Sun Red, his girlfriend Kayoko and General Vampu. Kayoko and Vampu, for example, get along very well and she occasionally consults him about housework or cooking. In contrast, she and Sun Red often argue like a long married couple.

Characters

Human

Sun Red (サンレッド San Reddo ?)
Voiced by: Shun Takagi
Sun Red is the protagonist of the Tentai Senshi Sun Red, referred by most as 'Red-san' which is a reversal of his name in romāji. Despite being an ally of justice, Red does not come off as being heroic much of the time and comes off rude and violent, as well as impatient and impulsive. In addition, he wears regular clothing even when fighting Florsheim's monsters (generally a t-shirt and shorts). The only signs that show he is a hero is his superhuman strength and the fact he inexplicably wears his helmet all the time. He is somehow able to smoke through the helmet, despite the fact that it covers his entire head.
Kayoko Uchida (内田 かよ子 Uchida Kayoko ?)
Voiced by: Makiko Nabei
Kayoko is Sun Red's girlfriend, your usual working woman who has a job at an insurance firm and apparently supports Red financially, though annoyed at him asking her for money. Like Red, she is unafraid to speak her mind and knows that deep down he cares for her deeply. Kayoko gets along very well with General Vampu, and the two often talk. On occasion, she even asks him for advice on housework.
