    What is this show? I don't know anymore
    Ever see an anime that leaves you going "what the s*** did I just see?". That's Samurai Flamenco. It is essentially a love letter to the transforming superheroes that make up Japanese lore, but it goes about it in the strangest way possible. First you think it's going to be a sad joke at the expense of the fans... then it becomes a real world take on it... then it starts taking the genre dead ...

    Loved it far more in the beginning
    I was actually at an anime club when I first saw Samurai Flamenco. The name turned me off to the show, but after watching the first episode I was hooked. The first six episodes were very relatable as the main character finds his path as a hero in the "regular" world. However from episode seven on, the show takes a supernatural turn with monsters, aliens, and probably more as the show goes on. ...

    Samurai Flamenco has a Promising start
    The animation quality is top-notch, the character designs are flawless and the dialogues are natural flowing.
    Episode 1 was very enjoyable for me, this anime has a promising start; the first episode set an overall tone; "If you want to accomplish something, you have to get out there and do it" sort of message and tackled some social issues such as the issue of high school delinquents.

    Please don't make a second season
    The first 6 episodes were great, they were more realistic yes but I really just liked the whole average guy becomes the underdog theme. After episode 7, the show jumped around way too much in both theme and plot. Also, Masayoshi is way too selfish for a protagonist. Speaking of characters, there's a few unresolved things, like Masayoshi's relationship with his assistant or ...

    Only the first Six episodes.
    The first six episodes make for an awesome anime. Then comes seven and turns the whole anime on it's head for the worst. It just genre flips as if the writers went out for coffee or something and some /b/tards just ransacked the script and settings. If they cut the other 17 episodes or so; It'd be 10/10.

    Throw Away your Expectations
    I'll start out by saying Samurai Flamenco is amazing. It got me watching Anime again. I keep trying new, strange anime just hoping another will be anything like this but none of them are because this anime is truly unique.
    If I had to say one thing to describe this anime, I would say that it defies your expectations. Every time you think you have a handle on it it throws you a curve ball. I'm not ...

    What can I say other than it was awesome!
    Okay, okay, SF has some dull moments and also moments that make you go, "what the heck?". In the beginning it was a little slow paced, but around episode 3 it picked up. It continues on until Flamenco gains support and becomes big across the nation. There was a stretch (now thinking about it, kinda worked great with the story) where it was like, "this is a joke right?"

    Samurai Punch to the......
    Man O Man what a roller coaster ride of a series. Action action and more action mixed with a side of humor. Like a bacon wrapped jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese. The first 6 episodes played out pretty darn good. Then it got weird for a bit. Like when you find out the girl you been crushing on is actually your 3rd cousin on your mom's side of the family. But since you never met your mom how were ...

  • Could have been better
    Not bad but not that good either - there were really hilarious moments but I found most of the battle scenes are pretty boring - esp with the flamengers forming the robot - it's like I was watching a rehash of Voltes V.

    I loved how naive he was and at the same time very pure and honest about his feelings and a wonderful contrast was the M3 leader who was insanely sadistic!

    I also loved the ...
