  • Deconstruction of Japanese superhero mythos
    Samurai Flamenco is eclectic. It's not going to be for everyone and doesn't try to be. In essence it is a homage to, partial deconstruction of, and actual example of popular Japanese superhero mythos... particularly mythos aimed at younger children.

    Masayoshi Hazama has grown up wanting to be a superhero. His career takes him into the world of male modeling, but kick-ass style he starts to take ...

  • Inconsistent and Kind Of Disappointing
    The beginning of this show was good. not great, but good. It gave the characters room to develop and a lot of directions it could go. The main character wanted to emulate the heroes he saw on TV when he was a kid and one of the big draws for the show was the clash between the real world and the fantasy world of TV Heroes. The main character had trouble reconciling the failed expectations he had ...

  • Boring unlikeable characters
    Couldn't make it past first episode, characters were bland and story has slow pacing. If they can't engage me in the first episode, how do they expect me to stay interested the whole season? All I kind of got a hero anime vibe from the episode, but the story definitely does not exhibit any of the attractive traits I expect in one.

  • A full hero's journey
    This show takes you throughout all the stages of a guy's life of being a superhero, without any powers or anything. It is seriously worth a watch. But be warned it can be a bit dark at times in order to highlight the light even more.

    Possible Spoilers:


    It takes you through his journey as he travels through each sub-genre of superhero fiction. It starts off very grounded, then you watch as ...

  • What a Waste of Artistic Talent
    This series had such promise: an actor wants to make the world a better place and decides to don his own hero costume to fight crime in his city. He is joined by a cute cop and the series has the potential to be a first rate BL program. Instead it takes a turn into the just plain dumb.

    I have never watched a show go from 8 out of 10 stars to 1 star so quickly. Really, don't waste your time ...

  • Plot Twist the Anime
    So you'll be watching a few episodes and then when you think you understand, you don't. This show was amazing, a little slow in the beginning but that's what they need to prep you for the rest of the show. All of the characters were great and really helped shape the show.

  • Samurai Flamenco is awesome!
    I absolutely loved and enjoyed this series very much! It had everything in it! The start reminded me of good ole Kamen Rider episodes, then they went onto Sentai Mode, Gattai Robot following and at the end he went all Ultraman! What's not to enjoy and the main message of Love conquers all! Very wonderful series!

  • Great Show! I enjoyed it
    The show starts off on a regular note. No super powers, super villains, and little violence. After a few episodes that all changes. I had liked the regular feel to it but I also like the super power feel to it. A lot of people say that the show was ruined after episode 7 but I disagree, it just takes a different turn. I'm surprised this show doesn't have more fans!
