We've had a real bountry of wonderful hero anime over the last few years. In honor of Hero Week, today on Why It Works we'll be highlighting just a few of the genre's recent highlights!
One of the more superficial surprises about Samurai Flamenco is that the the anime has some arts and crafts-y people on staff. After previously tweeting a Mari yarn doll, they shared a perler bead New Year's greeting. Get a look after the jump.
Get ready for big doings in Samurai Flamenco episode 11, "From Beyond!" including the appearance of a mysterious fortress in Tokyo Bay, and, far more unusual for anime, the introduction of four 20-something characters!

As Samurai Flamenco prepares for its second cour, the new opening and end themes have been announced. Flow will perform opening "Ai ai ai ni uta rete bye bye bye," the single for which will be released February 26th. In-anime idol trio Mineral Miracle Muse return by second ending "Flight at 11:00pm."

Noitamina Apparel has a history of semi-functional or unusual items based on its anime. It's now introducing Samurai Flamenco as its 10th collection. Though it boasts trying to balance sophistication with impact, the first item is a surprisingly conventional print shirt. Get a look after the jump.
The Samurai Flamenco Twitter feed has matched voices to the new cast member of the tokusatsu hero anime. KENN (Beyond the Boundary's Akihito Kanbara) voices Anji Kuroki, Yukari Tamura (Naruto's TenTen) is Sakura Mamoi, Showtaro Morikubo (Naruto's Shikamaru) is Soichi Aoishima, and Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Durarara's Mikado Ryūgamine) voices Hekiru Midorikawa.
