When Hiroya Matsumoto joined the Right Trading Company, he never thought he'd be anything more than a regular employee. But as it goes, he became the fifth member of a superhero team called the Shinesman. The Shinesman's mission is to defend the Earth against enemies from the Planet Voice. But amidst all this, Hiroya also has to look after his little brother, make a living, and do his superhero jobs clad in lame suits and equipped with equally lame weapons such as business cards! Can the Shinesman succeed in the face of utter comedy... I mean... terror?!

Low budget, low level script for some quick watch that bets (and imho fails miserably) everything on superpowered action with some comic relief.
Whenever Keiichi is away, it's time for Belldandy, Skuld, and Urd to play. Follow the Adventures of the Goddesses as they shrink down and have fun with their Rat sidekick, Gan-chan. Be it battling Gan-zilla or kitchen appliance romance, the Mini-Goddesses are there to have a good time.
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Hiroshi Ozora has always wanted to be a superhero, so he decided to do the only logical thing: create a transforming power suit called Moldiver!

Now, Hiroshi and Mirai must share the suit, alternating between manliness and beauty, to put a stop to Professor Machinegal!
Both OAVs tend to take quite lightly, not to say parodically, the peculiarly japanese themes of the masked superheroes.
While their comedy side is not always fully intelligibile (and laughable) by westners, both show are likable enough to deserve a watch.
Hazama Masayoshi is a successful model who's been enamored with righteous masked heroes since he was a child - so much that as an adult, he’s decided to become Samurai Flamenco: the masked hero of justice!

Swearing to keep his secret, Hidenori quickly becomes Hazama’s friend and partner on the job, but soon the pair find themselves in a sticky situation. Not only is the media determined to discover Samurai Flamenco’s true identity, his actions also trigger copycats, flooding the city with other masked heroes!
The Parody of Super sentai series is exactly what these two titles do.
In one it is a young well off man, who wants to be a fighter against injustice. In Shinesman, it is a buisiness man, who just wants to be the best worker, and gets roped into being on a team of solid colored team mates as they battle unworldly forces.
I tend to be thinking the joke works a bit better in a short form OAV of Shinesman, but if you saw one you might enjoy the other.
