What the fuck did I just watch?
If there was one anime I'm glad I watched along with /a/, this was it.
You just got sam'd. But don't worry, you'll be flam'd soon enough.
An absolutely singular experience.
I wonder if there was anyone autistic enough to count all the ball kicks in the show
If SamFlam teamed up with Little Boy, would the world be able to handle that much justice in one place?
The best anime of the last decade
Jesus fucking christ, where would I start.
Look, he ended up fighting everyone with Mazinger, then it got swallowed up by a pudding. Then he got into a fistfight with the snake-scepter guy, and he blew up.
Then he became a dragon. There, I've saved you all that time. Except for that one episode by Gen where the GI Joes crashed the party, that was pretty cool.
I hated how the anime jumped from "superheroes are just a mass product and most people grow past it but it was beautiful in a way" to "hurr over the top shit and superheroes are totally serious bro". Kind of sad because it would have been a neat deeper story
You clearly missed the amping up they had going on in the early episodes. He had gadgets made for him by what, episode 4? I thought they were going to progress it somehow but I didn't expect the show to just continue to get more and more ridiculous. In the end, it was perfect for an anime. If it was going to be a more serious show then they would have had to figure out a better way to progress the story and I didn't see that happening except the idol girl getting arrested for being evil as shit.
Yes I know it was over the top but at episode 4 he still was human, not some kind of justice god. And one of the early episodes the axe man comes over and tells him about the hammer sign being just some stupid symbol they kept of some canned idea. After that it didnt come up but then during one of the later episodes it comes up again. It was with the director and the MC asks him if he remembers one of the old shows he made. Moments like that felt like they wanted to do something with that angle but never went through with it
While it did get really wacky I think the episode with God brings that theme back around. Hazama chooses to return to a mundane life recognizing that the lack of villains doesn't invalidate the concept of justice
I don't see it. They are nothing alike. It is true that both are over the top, but one is just about "cool factor," while the other is a combination between parody and philosophy.
Both are parodies actually. Everything TTGL is from another show considered a classic or influential at some point. There's no real philosophy about TTGL but it's more like a rough retelling of the history of mecha.
It's just really shitty while SamFlam is actually good.
The plot might be ridiculous, and it might not be the most well polished show out there, but it's still a decent show, and if it hooks you then it's definitely worth the ride.
