Program Abstract: Hiroya Matsumoto, hoping to become a great employee as his late father, has just been hired at Right Corporation, a top trading company. Little does he know that he's been recruited for a very mysterious department within the company - the Special Duty Combat Unit: SHINESMAN…which must face a terrible alien menace unbeknownst to Earth. Like most corporate employees, Hiroya still has meetings to attend and deadlines to meet, but when the SHINESMAN team rage war against the alien race from Planet Voice, Hiroya and his co-workers don their office-colored combat unit suits: Red, Sepia, Gray, Moss Green, and Salmon Pink. If you thought you'd seen it all in Power Rangers, Masked Rider, or even Dynaman, wait until you take a look at the zany, but corporate world of SHINESMAN!
