I agree with some of the above comments about it losing some of its charm. I feel that they're doing it on purpose because King Torture said that he wanted to do it by the books, but that's still no excuse to deliberately lose your viewer's attention. I'm just hoping they can pull it back as soon as possible or it won't be half of the anime it was before.

I honestly can't get a grip on this story swerve. I think it's pretty clear at this point that it isn't a dream, unless it's an incredibly long one. But, with episode 9, I figure "Hey, this isn't really serious", as the fish guy waits for him to take a phone call and literally no one cares about what's going on, and I'm thinking it's just parodying The Power Rangers.

And then, wham, King Torture nearly tortures two characters to death.

I just don't know what they're doing since the last couple of episodes. I don't really like it, but I'm willing to give it a shot and see where it goes, if for no other reason, just to understand the sudden randomness. If this doesn't turn out well, this will probably be the biggest dud of the season for me, considering how good it was up until the Guillotine Gorilla.

Wait, did he just reveal himself his identity as Samurai Flamenco to the public like that?! I'm really unsure what direction this show will head towards to now.

Anyways, there will be new characters coming so I won't be dropping this yet. Oh another note, that song this episode from Maya was laughable.

Yes, yes he did that.

I'm soooo confused!

But was never considering dropping, though I'm really not sure whether or not I'll end up having liked the show as a whole once it ends.

So we have another hero who looks to be saw blade themed.

I was cringing when King Torture started torturing Moe.

So now Samurai Flamenco's identity is known and Konno wasn't killed.

It was pretty hard listening to Mari struggle through that song at the end.

Just out of curiosity, are the four new characters replacing the original heroes, in like a completely new arc or will they be working with Samurai Flamenco? I'm still trying to understand where this anime is going.

Amazing credits scene, when King Torture started torturing Moe I knew Mari was going to end up broken by the end of this episode, but I had no idea how much. I have hated Mari ever since she donned the Flamenco Girl costume but this episode was extremely brutal to her, so I forgive her for much of what she has done.I think they're probably going the whole what happens when a secret identity is no longer secret route for the next few episodes and the new heroes are gonna factor into that pretty heavily.

After that I've kinda given up on figuring out where the story is going after this lol. I mean now that is confirmed real it just makes everything feel inconsistent on so many levels. Not to mention that final battle was, well I don't really want to use cliche but yeah to sort of is.



Well the finale for this was pretty exciting with a few heart stringing moments but it just feels like this arc conclusion would fit so much better in another series.

I do wonder what the rest of the show is going to work with... though my interest is sort of dwindled.

I'm going to assume they will be rivals or something, not replacements though.

I'm so conflicted with this show lol.
I love the values that are stated and it stays true to the hero aspect, but it's sorta anticlimactic and the King Torture arc had great buildup then it just finished.... I honestly don't know the proper way to word the feeling i have with this show, i do like it though. No idea where it is going to head now.
Mari singing was sad and funny at the same time... haha

Ep 10

I have to say the development with Mari-san was the most interesting part of the episode, it leaves a lot to build off on later in the show.



A part of me still believes that all that is happening since King Torture showed up is a dream or something.

So yeah.... Can I just say how much I love this show? That episode was FLAMENTASTIC!!!!

That left me as speechless as I was when Gorillatine showed up! There was Moe, and Mari... And Goto.... and Masayoshi, and King Torture!!!! Dang.... that felt good... That felt really good!

This show hasn't really lost any of it's charm for me, it's different, but still great! And it still manages to have it's lighter, normal moments.


Also, I'm guessing King Torture will be back somehow, or his blue crystal/Arc Reactor thing will be important. (I wonder why it was left behind.)
