I don't want any romance in this show either
I think the people who made this show were aiming to make it like american superheroes to appeal to american audiences, that's why it lacks creativity lol (no offense to americans) but they were at least making fun of it at the same time, and i'm always up for satire. As for whether or not the second half /later episodes are more intelligent; i dunno. so far there hasn't been anymore bad guys except for the main bad guy of this show, and they haven't taken him down yet. Kotetsu is the best part of the show, I agree. It's nice to have an kind-hearted dad as a hero for a change instead of some young punk with teen angst or some chick with big boobs and an impossible waste line.
After the Jake episodes Burnaby did change his attitude, but I think he always liked Kotetsu but was too jaded to show it. Revenge and all that. Poor Bunny was just an angry and lonely boy. After he didn't have to worry about revenge anymore, he opened up and showed his feelings more. So, I didn't really think it was too weird for him to change like that. Also there was a several month time skip, so it wasn't like he changed over night.
The bit with the advertisents and the pepsi commercial and stuff was done for 2 reasons: 1) In case you didn't notice, they don't have a a segment thanking the sponsers of a show like most animes do (usually after the opening song) and I didn't see them in the credits either, so they paid tribute buy putting the sponsers' name on the hero's suits. Which also play into number 2. 2) It's part of the show, as mentioned before. The whole show is about "Hero TV" live broadcasting and stuff. It's an anime about a TV network, not just about the heroes. I think one of the reasons why some people find this show lame or boring, is because they forget the show is actually about a show
and they just think it's another superhero anime.
and perhaps they won't make a second season. they have enough rope to make one but the first season can stand alone well enough, so who knows.
I like Burnaby . He's reminds me of a cute little boy And i'm glad this anime only has one fan-service girl. that's enough imo.

I like Kotetsu -- especially 'cause it's interesting to see a shounen anime with a protagonist who has a kid and is/was married and all that. There are way too many "ordinary high-schoolboy introduced to a totally new power by his girlfriend-to-be" kind of plots out there.
But...am I the only one who likes Barnaby (pre-timeskip more than later on, but he's tolerable later as well)? I mean, I saw this forum where everyone's like; "If Barnaby didn't exist, we'd like this show better"
I personally think they're just sore because the pretty buxom scantily-clad high-schoolgirl (ie: Blue Rose) isn't getting much screen-time. Or maybe it's just the typical "glasses guys are lame and emo" attitude. Not that Barnaby isn't emo (not by a long shot ^^), but his angsting isn't insufferable, at least for me.
I guess I'm alone in liking both MCs equally?
