I've heard of this show recently. Someone told me that they even make fun of
the characters having a public relations firm butting in. How is it doing

So "Tokusatsu" is the term they use for live action stuff? I keep on using
Sentai - but that implies a team concept like Bioman or Juu Ranger. I've
always wondered what to call Janperson and Shaider.
