Loved Holly's scenes in episode 16
I'm probably very late on this, but I just noticed the skull on her shirt changes according to her mood.

Hopefully, we won't have to see Minami ever again, he was such a lame villain... but well, it's not like the Skruggs were any better.

I'm looking forward to the soundtrack release as well, and I hope Holly's insert song will be included.

And yeah, as I said after watching the PV, the Badass Longcoat is obviously Will.

Now this episode was gdlk. Perfect music execution and high quality animation...but the most important thing was Stan Lee getting his coffee.

Episode 16 was a pretty good wrap up to this arc. That was a some pretty good fighting there.

on slightly related note, if Heroman does well, I wonder if Ultimo will get made into an anime.

Good villains is really what this series lacks most. The Skrugg arc really started to drag towards the end. This time around the plot progression felt more dynamic, at least. I enjoyed the date episode the most from this arc, though.

But the outcome of the EMP attack on Heroman was pretty much clear before it happened.

Oh Holly.

This show really needs to get some great villains though. The BGM so far has been outstanding and it's starting to reach Eureka 7 levels for me.

That's really what the show is lacking big time. The cast has been such a treat to watch and interact with one another, though there's just been no interest with the villains, which is a shame because some of the best villains you can find out there are created by Stan Lee.

I hope the last few arcs can deliver with this.

I'm not sure, I really liked Minami's character, he was the typical evil scientist who wanted more power than he could have.

I'm hoping for a king pin style Yakuza character though.

I'm sure Center City has their own share of Italian Mafia (or maybe Chinese Mafia, seeing as they are on the west coast), but do you really think they can top an alien invasion with that? Maybe if his girlfriend gets captured and Heroman malfunctions at the same time...

Well, I was just thinking of Villains and the mafia always play a big part in Stan Lee's cartoons/comics so I wouldn't mind seeing what happens.

I mean the King Pin finds a squad of the Incedious Six? In spiderman of the top 6 or so people to take down Spiderman, I'm pretty sure they could fine something like that for Heroman if they really wanted.

Well we are at crossroads now. Will the plot be taking the monster of the week path? Or will we reach a corruptive moral horizon.

Heh, that's funny. I think Minami is a disgrace to the mad scientist name, all he wanted was glory. Waltzing into Capitol Hill with the intent to show off his newest piece, failing at that, for some unexplainable reason he helped out with re-construction efforts, but when given the chance to go up against "the Ghost" all he's hell bent on is destroying Heroman, later on on national television to boot. That's why he suspended his self from the Osprey so that everyone can see his face. Why? All because Heroman took his glory [of wanting to destroy the Skrugg].

If he wanted power, he should have done what most mad scientists do and that is capture Heroman as quickly as possible to use his power source for other [ulterior] means.

Bring on the next villain, I always say [4-5 eps ago]

Well it's obvious the character in the long coat who appeared at the end of last weeks episode will be Nick, so that will be the next focus. Pretty silly going to monster of the week at this point, especially when the series shows no signs of doing so.

It was the Skrugg arc which wasn't all that interesting, so i really can't blame a lot of people for dropping it there and then. But yeah it's a shame because it's really improved a lot since that arc ended.

The skrugg arc almost put me off. Then Heroman starts punching again, and I got through it. Then Hughes and Holly made their entrances, and Stan Lee made it into the opening animation, and I've decided to stay
