    First 6 episodes where promising, then...
    I don't really know what happened. Maybe the staff took some weird mushrooms, I don't know. I'm at episode 12 now and I'm not sure if I want to see the remaining episodes. King Torture, Power Rangers,..., seriously? This show could have been so good...

    UPDATE: finished the series now. It doesn't get any better, it gets even worse. What's with that gay ending?

    Its bloody brilliant!
    This anime takes the cake when it comes to plot twists. Nearly every episode from episode 7 will leave you questioning your sanity of what you have just watched. This is really a homage to the super hero genre. It starts off with a Kick Ass style with Masayoshi wanting to be a hero but having no skills at all and at each point it evolves by paying homage to some of the greatest super hero ...

    Excellent! Superhero show
    This show is hard to describe but it is about a young man who wants to be a superhero and he begins by enforcing rules and stuff and eventually becomes a superhero and recognized by everyone. So far I am thoroughly pleased. I mean the "Flamengers"? lol and power ranger looking superheroes. It is a great show with many twists and it may start off slow but it gets better with every episode. I didn't ...

    It started out like kickass but then...
    Episodes seen: 14
    I don't really expect you guys to know what Kickass is but just put it out there as a reference to describe the first 10 episodes. It starts out with the realistic approach of what it would be like if someone ordinary decided to become a superhero, he then meets a more "trained" superhero and hi-jinks ensue.
    Yeah the first 10 episodes were clearly inspired by Kickass (or maybe ...

    Watch It! It is really Awesome!
    Samurai Flamenco is a really good show that has a lot to offer but kinda loses itself but is a worth watching anime! I don't watch superhero anime's often but this one is really good. I love all the characters and the plot is a good one, but I always found myself wondering if it was a action show with in a show...but I will like this show even though right now it has yet to finish airing. I saw ...

    My favorate anime this season!
    I don't "review" but this anime is too great not to in my opinion, I mean I let it sit in my queue for a couple of weeks but after I started watching it I was hooked, I love the characters personalities, and the curveballs in the plot. Definitely worth watching.

    Where it was and where its going...
    This show started off fantastic!

    The first few episodes explore a unique twist on super heroes in modern day settings. Saving the day from the smallest of crimes, and a hero who follows every rule there is.

    Then this show attempted to pull a Gurren Lagan; and it just ruined the building blocks of the initial release. I was/am disappointed with where this has gone (Originally gave the show ...

    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.

    Best New Show of the Season!
    It is a well written show with a fresh concept. I like the fledgling romance-that-isn't-a-romance between Flamenco's agent and the tabloid reporter. This show is funny when it needs to be, touching at times, and yet can lay down the wood when action is demanded. A good all around show that I hope is continued.
