  • 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?"

  • Rollercoaster ride!!
    At times funny, entertaining, and even moving at its core this show is a hectic, chaotic mess. ricocheting around like a bouncy ball on steroids this show will leave you so whip lashed you wont know which direction is up. worth watching just to say that you made it all the way though.

    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 ...

    Whatever happens beyond episode 7; wait until the end and you will understand why it all happens.
    Most people seem to be upset at how pseudo-realistic the show is up until episode 7. If you watch until the very end of the series, everything is explained. I had a big, "Ooooh" moment when it was explained why all this phenomena was happening and then it all made sense.

    There is a heap ton of character development in this series. It never really had a dull moment for me. I'd rate this show a ...

    Happy to obnoxiously pissed off in 7 episodes
    Had all the workings; good characters and their backgrounds, interesting plot, etc. Six episodes in and I was thinking, "hey, this is pretty darn good." Well after those six episodes, I wanted to find the creator and break my keyboard over their head. Went from normal to wtf in seconds. Extremely disappointing anime.

    One of My New Faves of All Time
    Starting this series, I was absolutely doubtful about whether or not I could grow to like this. The animation wasn't particularly note-worthy... and the main character just seemed so idiotic.

    As I watched more and more... well... let's just say that this is one of the strangest, moronic and WTF-ing show I have ever watched. And I effing loved it.

    This show had so many plot twists ...

    An anime with a funny but also sad story
    Masayoshi really made me think. "Holy crap! What is he DOING!?" but then he becomes this REAL hero. FILLED WITH PLOTTWIST.
    Goto-san is this policeman who is the first to meet Masayoshi as his real self. They show this friendly love for each other. Not gay but just really care for each other!
    Then these irritating girls inter the series. Making Yuri and so on. :P
    Even so I give the series 5 ...
