  • What a strange show; Let's Flamenco!
    I--

    Well--

    I don't think I can really sum up this show with any sort of ease. It does its own thing, and winds up being a massive pastiche and tribute to tokusatsu shows. It goes from serious to totally goofy to really heartfelt, and has a fully bizarre conclusion.

    I think it's worth a watch, though.

  • So good... then, not so good...
    I will agree with everyone else who has written a review that the first 6 episodes are AWESOME. Then it goes on some weird Power Rangers trip that I originally thought was some drug-induced dream the protagonist was having, until it kept going and going and going... It got so annoying and pointless that I had to research if it was actually worth my time to continue watching... The answer that I ...

  • guess they ran out of ideas
    Refreshing and interesting until it goes from fighting realistic crimes to corny supervillain army that shows up out of nowhere. I actually thought it was going to continue in the more realistic vein until the end, but apparently they didn't have enough imagination.

    This is much deeper than I thought,
    than what you'd expect from a normal straight-forward anime, even it sets out with that tone in the first few episodes.

    Quite a lot of people were complaining about what comes beyond Episode 6, but I beg to differ. 7-22 were totally logical, necessary, and well-paced in terms of what the anime wants to bring to the table.

    This is a sophisticated piece of art that strikes a glamorous balance ...

    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?"

    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.
