Poor, short, and unathletic Joey Jones has always been picked on by the rich kids at his school.

If he's going to save the world, however, he's going to need the help of his friends Psy, Lina, and Professor Denton, along with more courage than he ever knew he had.
Both Heroman and Dokkoida?! are about superheroes, aliens, and shounen fighting action. They both feel a lot more like American cartoons, then Japanese anime in style and execution. Dokkoida?! is more of a comedy and Heroman takes itself a little more seriously, but I think if you like one there's a good chance you will enjoy the other.

Dokkoida?! and Ninja Nonsense are both parodies of popular genres. While Ninja Nonsense obviously parodies Ninjas, and Dokkoid?! parodies powered suits, the humor and pacing of both is similar. If you enjoyed one and are looking for more parody action, you should check out the other.
Puni Puni Poemi is a spin-off of Excel Saga, the classic lampoon of all that is anime. It takes the daughter of two Excel Saga characters and puts her through parodies of shoujo, shounen, ecchi, hentai, and everything in-between. This eccentric show is the "Scary Movie" of anime: younger viewers need not apply.
Dokkoida and Puni Puni Poemi are series which lampoon standard anime sterotypes. PPP lampoons the 'magical girl' stereotype, while Dokkoida lampoons the 'normal person which gains power and becomes protector of the earth' sterotype. Both, however, are amusing in their over the top depiction of said stereotypes.
