    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    this one is banana-bonkers
    The animation is not perfect, the characters are a little odd, there is a little too much ship-bait but its great.

    Just watch until episode 7, come back and tell me what you thought, as this series goes from an interesting realistic approach to vigilantism to something completely different.

    When watching have a drink every time the show makes you say "WHAT?!"

    Refreshing Wackiness
    Definitely one of the stranger titles that I've seen. Yet it's this unpredictability; this rollercoaster plot that makes this show amazing.
    You never know what's coming next and you seemingly get thrown a curveball at every opportunity. This is great though, the plot never goes stale and boring, which makes me come back week after week for another dose of Samurai Flamenco.
    It's titles like this ...

    Started off so promising
    This anime had a really great premise at first. The hero is just a mostly normal guy who just wanted to be a superhero and he goes out and starts to live his dream. He starts off just getting beat up, but eventually he really does start to become a hero. Then episode 12 or so comes along and it becomes the worst power rangers tribute show I have ever seen. This show literally went from being an ...

    Stick with it and you may be surprised
    In short, the story progression goes like this: Great-Jumped shark-Powerful resolution-Jump shark again- Full circle.

    Trust me when I say it is worth watching from start to finish. When the story calls for it, the writers produce great stuff. While they build up those moments, you get plenty of parody style shenanigans.

    Also there's some pretty good music in my opinion

    Enjoy it for what it is, not what it seems.
    As spoiler-free as possible.

    Mr_E_Fox explains the gist of my opinion, check his spoiler-free review out!
    (though it does contain a spoiler for ep 7 in a spoiler box)

    I'd like to elaborate a little more for those who still haven't checked this show out, and are reading all these disappointed reviews. I've watched up to ep.13 btw.

    I admit, I was unsure at first. The story ...

    Can't wait for more!
    The first episode was great, it really sucked me in, and i believe that it has the potential to keep that pace. This show seems like it can go one of two ways, Masayoshi can either become a well known local hero, or he can keep getting himself into bad situations that Goto has to get him out of. Either way, I'm invested and cannot wait to see where it goes.

  • Actually a phenomenal show
    Phenomenal isn't a word I use to describe shows often, but this show is the embodiment, with only 22 episodes you can watch it in one or two sittings, the pacing goes crazy starting slow, to fast, to bombastic, then slows down towards the end, I would recommend this show to anyone who enjoys superhero animes, the openings are catchy and addictive, the visuals are done incredibly, the characters ...
