Samurai Flamenco: A roller coaster ride and not in a good way

Watching Samurai Flamenco is a lot like being on a ride at an amusement park. Unfortunately, it’s type of ride that was assembled in a hurry, wasn’t thought out properly, did have a few moments of entertainment while you were on it, but then when it’s done you realize you didn’t have that much fun and can’t bring yourself to buy the commemorative photograph they try to sell you in the gift shop.

I really did enjoy this show while watching it but then I take the time and look it over again and it just doesn’t hold up. It has huge plot holes that you can drive Mr. Justice’s stars and striped truck through. Just so you don’t have to watch the anime to get that reference, Mr. Justice is an American hero with the American Flag on the trailer of his truck. It humorous but right after that Samurai Flamenco fights the Ultimate Prime Minister who is powered by his approval rating. Remember this started as a show about a guy who got beat up because he was telling a bunch of kids that they were causing a ruckus and need to be more respectful for others. How did it come to this?

In the end this show fails as a comedy, fails as an introspective in the hero genre, and just fails overall. Its lucky I had any fun at all while watching it and gave as high a score as I did. Go watch Tiger and Bunny, the more superior anime with heroes in it. Trust me, it’s so much better.

Rating: 2/5

  • I find it interesting that you say the series doesn't stand up in time when it only finished airing last year. It really can't be that great, then! – Jordan 8 years ago
  • I.. don't even know what to say about that last picture hahahaha. – Tatijana 8 years ago
  • I will admit that Samurai Flamenco is most definitely a wild sort of ride to the point in which a lot of things don't make sense in it, but I will give credit where credit is due and say that there were some amazing sense in the series. I have even been to a panel that called Samurai Flamenco "One of the Greatest Anime You Probably Dropped." One thing that I like is that if you stay on the roller coast long enough it explains more about the randomness that occurs being the work of basically a god that helped make the world in Samurai Flamenco's image and what he desired. – Kmo 8 years ago
