I haven't been here since early 2014.
Anyone wanna have a samurai flamenco thread for old times sake?
Texas anon here
I liked the show
for the drama content and couldn't have cared less about the superhero theme. Even though some scenes were great.
I would have liked to see more of Goto's afterstory.
You don't hold justice in your heart
The only correct answer.
>this blurry quality
>that aspect ratio
It makes me nostalgic.
So I watched this with no spoilers and was really enjoying the tone of the series.
Then Guillotine Gorilla happened. I finished the series and I seriously don't know what to think anymore. I honestly have no comprehensible opinion about this anime.
The wildest ride I have experienced in media.
>scene is from Masayoshi's POV
I still think the From Beyond arc gets better on rewatch, the Masayoshi break down is nice to watch without having to worry if Goto and the girls are not coming back
Ahhh what an incredible show. I'll never fight you if you say it's 6/10 or below.
But it's a 10 in my heart always. And this nonsense webm got me to watch it.
ACTUAL SPOILERS This scene is sides destroying when you consider he sent that to himself, and came up with his witty remark while driving.
Goto is love, Goto is
a slutty bottom for Masayoshi's Flamenco!
I dunno man. I think it had potential, but most of the time it feels like they never quite took each gimmick quite far enough, like they stopped right before getting the full potential from it and overall the experience felt rather superficial as a result.
Also I still say I'd probably have enjoyed it more if it just stayed a realistic drama like the first few episodes wanted you to believe.
It's been a while since /a/'s last biggest shitstorm, Chomping Chimpanzee was fun stuff.
I miss that feeling you're describing, that uncomfortable state of nirvana of not knowing what to think about anything.
Samurai Flamwenco was truly the wildest ride of any anime ever.
The episode where Masayoshi struggles with keeping the invasion a secret from the public was 10/10 but overall I found the conclusion of that arc to be lackluster, which is wierd considering the climax of the arcs were always GOAT in SamFlam.
I was really close to dropping it until King Torture arc reached its finale, and it was amazing. I knew it was worth finishing. And then to finish it all off the entire last arc of the series was top-tier.
I said it once before, and I shall say it again.
When I went about watching SamFlam I had only ONE expectation. One thing that the show continually promised. And that was a hero. A hero that would never give up, never hide, never be defeated, and never accept evil. And that was the one thing that I got.
Sure, it was a wild ride. Many parts became somewhat bizarre, many parts became somewhat traumatic, some emotionally devastating, so I can understand how many people could lose interest among the many tonal shifts. However, I was not one such person. Because despite the change in tone, there remained a single fundamental principle; a hero. A True Hero.
A Hero that could face off impossible odds, ANY odds, even his inner turmoil, and still come out true to himself and his cause without being tarnished or diminished.
This is truly is an anime about a hero that never gave up, never hid, who's spirit was never defeated, and who NEVER accepted evil. This was a show about True Justice. They presented false justice, men who spoke pretty words about twisted ideals, men who tried to corrupt Samurai Flamenco, tried to kill him, put him in an impossible situation which no normal man could escape with his morals intact. But Justice did prevail. Justice and heroism will always win the day.
I actually found the end of the Flamengers arc to be the hypest moment of SamFlam moments, Red Axe's reappearance and speech were fucking GOAT for me
Beyond Flamenco was the moment I found a bit lackluster when I first watched, but after of his true nature in episode 18 now I love it too
Did Concrete Revolutio finally deliver the justice?
The climax of the Flamengers arc was most hype, but pic related was by far the best.
Your post reminds me of this.
I really do adore episode 7 when Masa was struggling to feel sad about the truth about his parents. It's so grounded and realistic. Society nowadays expect us to feel sympathetic at every little thing and are quick to point fingers when we're not acting in such a way. Only those who are easily swayed by society would actually take the dark hero route and try and avenge their parents who they barely remember anything of.
It's a real shame Manglobe went under. What other studio in our current climate would be so bold as to have the main heroine get mercilessly raped by the midboss villain? Whatever you think about their work, at least they had balls.
Don't worry, Anon
As long as Kurata gets work the rape will live on
I really enjoy this show, although it's weird how two episodes in the middle of the series make it seem a lot slower than it really is. I've seen it twice and the flamengers arc always bugs me.
