  • 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 ...

  • It is good, i love it
    samflam is a work of art, it changed my life, it was slept on by the uncultured masses, and it deserves praise and to be held up in the highest regard. the characters are all unique and interesting, with understandable and relatable struggles, particularly our protagonist, Masayoshi. the show presents morality in a fascinating light, neither black nor white. different characters have differing ...

    A truely unique show. Definitely watch without any prior knowledge.
    Watch it.

    This is a must watch. DO NOT RESEARCH THIS SHOW. You will enjoy some aspect of it, guarantee. This show is far more enjoyable going in blind.

    Can't really think of anything else to write, but I will re-iterate, you should watch this show. At least the first 10 episodes.

  • A brilliant idea done badly.
    This show is a brilliant idea done bad. Just stop watching at the halfway mark.

    The first half is unexpected, and brilliant while the last half is cliche and tiresome.

    100% worth a watch, but 100% not worth finishing. Which is a real shame given how unique it is.

  • Wild Ride Through and Through
    I almost always read the reviews before I watch a show, so I thought that I was prepared for the crazy ride that was about to happen. Still, i was surprised again and again with plot twist after plot twist. Everything was just ridiculous and hilarious, though this type of humor may not be for everyone.

    It is true that half-way through the 22 episodes, I got rather tired of the same format for ...

  • Samurai Flameco: Buck-Wild the anime
    Before you watch this show, it's good to know what you are getting in for, because it starts out like the comic "Kick-Ass", then drastically changes later on that completely alter what the story is about. Also this is quite a show you will either love or hate, and I think it helps to know there is a huge twist at ep 7 ( won't say what it is, check the spoiler section.)
    Over all, I would give ...

    There's no way to know what you're getting into, but...
    you'll love every second of it.

    I genuinely don't know what I was expecting, but Samurai Flamenco delivered all of it and way more. I finished all of it in 4 days (I would have finished much faster, but work got in the way haha)... I wish I had the proper words to describe how special this show and its characters became to me seriously in an instant.

    My sister put this on for us to check ...

  • LOVED THIS [email protected]$$ ANIME!
    This anime was so much fun from start to finish. Definitely not one to be taken too seriously, but it's highly entertaining for anyone who's willing to just sit back and enjoy the ride of a show that gets progressively more and more outrageous as it sends up as many classic anime and superhero shows (Voltron/GoLion, Sailor Moon, Power Rangers) as it can squeeze into 23 episodes. And it's not all ...

  • Bizzarre decisions that court absurdity while never letting the audience truly in
    Samurai Flamenco is a bizarre show. The first 7 episodes are ostensibly a Japanese take on the idea of an everyday hero, similar to the American comic book/movie series Kick Ass and for those first 7 episodes you have a really good buildup and development of that story idea. That idea is promptly shoved out the airlock as the series begins to warp and bend in upon itself, making absurdist ...
