Who the fuck approved this? Why are they trying to ruin this even more with each new episode?
Why is the OST so good?
The fact that things are accelerating makes me a tiny bit hopeful that the plot will come back around soon. It's too abrupt to not be intentional.
Is Samurai Flamenco a trainwreck?
It'll probably end up being the greatest trainwreck of our generation.
A trainwreck with the potential of becoming a roller coaster ride.
It was a pleasant ride until the conductor derailed the train halfway across a bridge spanning a vast chasm. Now, either the train will crash into the ground below, killing everyone onboard, or it will land onto a second set of tracks without a hitch and be considered one of the most daring feats of train engineering ever achieved.
I'm expecting it to turn into a evangelion.
Run out of funding for the last episode use nothing but stock. and end with a movie.
This show is so bad that I'm not sure why I'm still watching. But now it's too late to stop. I want to get off this wild ride.
>stupid plot that tries to be a tokusatsu but it's not a good one
>Sugita cop isn't really that relevant anymore
>retarded plot twists
Why do I still watch this?
Jesus, imagine what would happen if flamenco got an eva ending.
I still have no idea whether it's completely brilliant or completely terrible.
I swear the people who aren't watching this show have a more solid understanding of it than the people watching it.
When will the circle close and he realizes the strongest weapon is none but himself and have a fistfight against the anti-spirals?
Evangelion was fairly successful when it was airing.
For the Flamenger theme song.
It's a nice trip.
Raise your hand if you are watching this to see how bad it can get.
It can't be a trainwreck if it's intentional.
>Flamenger theme song
Seriously this is the one bit that lives up to toku battle music, that it will haunt your nightmares, you will hum and think of it at all times of day.
Can't wait for OST
i need a new reaction gif for this
I'm watching to see if it can pull out of this tailspin
But it goaded us into thinking it was a generic mecha.
Yes it can.
Actually it's even worse when it's intentional but doesn't work as intended.
I'm watching it for the next Guillotine Gorilla
Sadly that can't be repeated, you can only pull such an unexpected turn once
I have no clue where this show is going, but I'm in too deep to stop now. I actually like the MC so that's one of the main reasons I'm still here. Seeing him go from a zero to hero has been kinda fun.
I think I dropped this series, what the fuck is going on?
You don't understand. The train is no longer on the tracks, but it hasn't derailed. It's flying.
This song suits him.
>Starts off with interesting plot
>Turns into kickass around episode 5
>FUCKING GUILLOTINE GORILLA
>Cue quality drop
>KING EVIL "THIS IS NOT OUR TRUE POWER"
>Final fight was fucking nothing
>He was being controlled
>They're still shit
>I'm watching super sentai with blood
>Sugita cop isn't really that relevant anymore
All the old characters are being ignored in favor of his new team.
I miss when he was just fighting petty thugs.
im watching it in hopes of it somehow going back to how it used to be in the first 6 episodes
At the final episode, obviously.
Theme song is good if nothing else. At this point I'm just watching to see what the show manages to pull out their ass next.
Is this show Akibaranger the anime?
Z-cune Aoi anime never.
>missing the references
Flamenco girls are in the OP, so obviously they're going to become relevant again. Samumenco is out for a yellow ranger, and who else in the whole show wears yellow? Mari. Expect her to get back into shape within the next 2 episodes.
I hope it's the latter.
And she's less likely than the blue guy to accept Hazama as the leader.
>And she's less likely than the blue guy to accept Hazama as the leader.
What if romance happens?
She's seen the error of her ways after King Torture. It's time for her to realize that she must fight for Justice instead of her petty amusement.
Tea time with from beyond?
So every studio should just make shit anime from now on, then you can't call it shit because it was intentional, and the anime industry thrives.
What happens if its actually good or decent?
I'm so sick of people defending bad shows by saying they're doing it intentionally. It happens like 5 times every season.
>hurr it's a trainwreck because they wanted it to be
>hurr they're not taking themselves seriously
Sure, maybe it's true for Samurai Flamenco but that doesn't automatically make its shit any less shit.
I'm going to miss JUST ONE LIFE
We're half way there
Why do you guys get so mad about the show being over the top and ridiculous?
You shouldn't expect amazing plot and complete logic in super sentai though.
Because it's only trying to be over the top and ridiculous.
Don't worry about it okay? It will all become clear when the aliens reveal themselves.
Just wait until the next arc-changer
Pupa's not a trainwreck, it's just shit. Trainwreck usually means it's entertaining somehow.
pretty much. the beginning was so good that i'm hoping something good can come out of it
>Implying is not going to sound on the final battle
Beginning was amazing, It's shit now.
Usually I can ignore and laugh at trainwrecks, but this one just makes me both mad and sad. I was really invested in the characters and so excited every week to see what shenanigans they'd get into.
Then we got Gilloutine Gorilla. And it just got worse from there.
There was a logical plot, and then they turned it into super sentai garbage.
I still hope it's all a dream. Please let it be a dream.
>Masayoshi is in a vegetative state and this show is his unfulfilled fantasy
>not thinking that Masayoshi isn't changing reality to fit his delusions
>a flamenco girl or goto will die if they piss off Masayoshi
Everyone in this thread got trolled.
This isn't a "trainwreck", it's entirely deliberate.
You know I always thought that this show was going to top out with manager or mari being kidnapped by the yakuza
Because an intentional trainwreck is better than an accidental one right?
I don't know what is going on anymore and I don't know if this is a good or bad thing.
They are going to fight videogames consoles
At this point it's probably supposed to be funny, but I really just want the sentai arc to be over already.
Is the new opening real or is this a psycho-pass like situation?
The "logical plot" was MC trying to become the superhero of his favorite super sentai. He did it.
>average /a/non too stupid to realize that episode was directly referencing and mocking Goseiger having like 4 different baddie organizations follow each other in a row
Why is Reto Axo so trustworthy?
>The 64 War Gods were just kittens compared to the 1203 Intergalactic Tigers, nyaa~
>too stupid to get the references to shitty toku shows
>thinking that makes the episode not dumb as fuck anyway
Parodies and references are not good unless they're done well.
This isn't the case.
They may as well make a serious toku anime and be done with it.
so glad i dropped this shit long time ago
>references to shitty toku shows
You are a retard. SamFlam is a gigantic love letter to tokusatsu fans.
>how dare they reference and parody stuff from tokusatsu in an anime about tokusatsu references
>This isn't the case.
Right, because you're not Japanese and not familiar with the tropes they're making fun of.
>this show is making fun of itself
>it's still shit because I say so
Holy crap, get your heads out of your asses already.
Red Ax is going to betray the flamengers. It might end up being a double lie (as in he was lying about betraying them; he wanted to prepare them for the final fight), but he will end up betraying them nonetheless. This lie will be used. Calling it now.
GET THIS REFERENCE GUYS WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE doesn't make for a good show.
The first couple episodes had character development, a really interesting concept, and they were even setting up rivalries and questionable morality with Mari. It was seriously going somewhere great with really likable characters.
Then they decided to ruin everything.
everything I loved about this show was a lie...but it was a beautiful lie so I'll still watch
I mean, what can they possibly do after Flamengers?
That doesn't sound anything like a Sentai show's plot twist.
Try referencing a sentai show perhaps?
Masayoshi going crazy and killing off his friends with reality altering powers arc
You're doing the exact same thing you gigantic retard.
That's not even what he's talking about.
Why is "the show is being intentionally absurd" a poor defense if it's actually true?
I don't care if you're not enjoying the show and would prefer it remained grounded, but don't call it shit just because of that.
Because if I write something that's shit on purpose, it doesn't make it not shit. If I go write a shit fanfiction right now about Sonic crossing over with Berserk, it doesn't make it not shit because I went into it trying to make it bad.
But it will be a beautiful lie.
But he looks so trustworthy and honest.
Because it's not a defense at all.
Making something absurd on purpose is not automatically a good thing.
I liked everything until the end of the King Torture arc. After that, it's like the writers just said "fuck it" and stopping trying to be even remotely original. Maybe this will turn around soon, but the last 2 episodes have just been generic trash.
"the show is being intentionally absurd" doesn't automatically mean it's either good or bad
It's shit because it's shit. Because I watch it and it's not interesting or funny or exciting or entertaining. It's shit.
Absurd =! bad
>I don't like it so it's shit!
I liked how it was realistic in the beginning but now it's all so stupid. I thought this was going to be Japanese Kick-ass or Super but instead i got GUIRROTINE GORILLA.
"I like it so it's good"
I miss how far they took the self-awareness.
With the Flamengers it's all, "Hey, that's what a guy who wears the blue suit would say if this was a TV show!" It's not that I mind that they recruited several adults with attitude instead of using the established cast but they're thrust onto us with barely any time to really appreciate them.
Guerilla Gorilla was fun because it was such an insane swerve after we had been lulled into a false sense of security. SamFlam grew from being unable to take on drunks to being considerably competent in his own right while the Flamenco Girls were off being vigilante sociopaths. I feel like things are escalating too quickly for their own good, but on the other hand, they're not really doing much beyond fighting monster of the week with some half-handed tongue-in-cheekness.
Kick-Ass and Super both went in shitty directions with the modern day superhero thing.
Something like the last arc of Strongest Man Kurosawa is what we need for this premise.
This is exactly my issue with the show. In the first 8-9 episodes, Samumenco developed slowly and realistically as a hero, from the upgraded equipment, to his videos going viral, to his physical training and development as a person. To go from that to we've seen in the last few episodes was way too big of a leap, and it threw out one of the key themes of the show early on, which was that as absurd as all this stuff was, it was at least plausible.
>they're thrust onto us with barely any time to really appreciate them.
That's because we're not meant to, they'll be killed off in 2 or 3 episodes.
>dem visuals in the new OP
Holy fuck the sales fucked this show up
It's a temporary OP, real one next week
Here's my rough take on the show.
I hope this curve remains monotonic until it somehow suddenly dips back to full realism in the last episode
Guillotine gorilla didn't kill off this show, it was the fucking flamengers and the original cast getting ignored in favour of these new faggots. Hazama-kun needs to be the star ALWAYS
Though I love their theme song
yes, now stop being a mad faggot, and go back to 9fag
This, it's just a bunch of underaged kiddos getting trolled by a fucking anime, it's ridiculous how full of 12 years olds this board has become
Pink is a qt3.14 though and I find her calling Red Axe, "Darling" all the time quite endearing.
Because you're another faggot waifufag
Kill yourself fag
Both ED's are fantastic
release of the new one when?
KONO HOSHI WOOOOOOO
Do people die when they are killed?
Yes. Most of the people that tend to get killed in Sentai stay dead as well for normal people.
Poor little girl.
Toku bullshit ruined this show. Why couldn't we just have a realistic superhero show with moral conflicts about what being a true hero is and what true justice means?
Because fuck you that's why.
>show about a MC who wanted to be like Not-Kamen Rider and Not-Hikaider
Are you really that stupid
Would you get the HG or MG version?
Apparently, you are.
You're clueless man.
shit b8 m8
Did you miss the promo image that screamed "Toku in anime form"? It should be no surprise to anyone that was paying attention that it's going in this direction.
HG? MG? Both I guess.
This was an incredible episode. OP is a retarded shitpost faggot.
Daily reminder that /a/ loves this show, and the people who hate it are mod supported shitposters.
Janitors/Mods, you need to fuck off and let REAL /a/ handle these shits. Let us go wild, we'll make sure this kind of shitposting never returns to /a/.
Support a free /a/, it's the only way to combat organized shitposting
The sooner the Flamenger shit ends, The better.
At this point I legitimately believe Manglobe hates the kind of shows they are parodying, and are going out of their way to shit on them in a passive-aggressive manner.
More like the sooner your shitposting fucking ends, the better.
Told you guys this shit jumped the shark with that guillotine gorilla bullshit.
Nice shitpost fucking retard
Fuck off faggot.
I miss Moe and Mizuki, don't care at all for Mari, especially with her true nature revealed by King Torture in episode 10.
Same time like some others, I am kind of upset and frustrated that Ishihara and Goto are reduced to barely cameo hopping minor characters at this point. And Newspaper kun as well.
That said I also like the Flamengers as well. Tough to juggle with all these characters around, so safe bet shit is going to go down again for real, soon.
You jumped the shark when your dad fucked you in the ass. It's okay, you can stop shitposting now, we hope you get well soon, after all, not everyone gets buttfucked by their father. Still no excuse to shitpost.
Hanging on in hopes that show redeems itself as nothing but a dream.
Hanging on in the hopes that /a/ redeems itself by becoming a mostly unmoderated board like /b/ or /pol/ so we can deal with the organized shitpost influx/invasion from fucktards like you
It's not that often we can hope an anime ends up being just a dream.
Just remember, fucker. The only reason you're allowed to shitpost constantly is that the mods and janitors have basically approved of your fucking retardation - which shows you how fucktarded they are as well, concise proof that /a/ needs to be moved to /b/ and /pol/ standards, then we can get the fucking IRC off our board
Moe really needs to come back.
It's not often that IRC shitposting is supported and endorsed by the mods and janitors of a board. But IT'S HAPPENING.
We're too far down the rabbit hole for that now. That's something they should have done after Guillotine Gorilla. There's no going back now.
Holy shit, so much fucking mad.
>especially with her true nature revealed by King Torture in episode 10.
But she was always a bitch.
I agree. At most they should've that it was all a show after King Torture. But nooo, we get this.
I would have said the same thing before the GG episode, but anything could happen now.
>Not understanding that rage is justified
>Not wanting to murder your enemies entire family
>Not telling your enemies that they are already dead
Do you even Hokuto no Ken?
Please don't feed the autist.
How is your day going anon?
You are the autist, you fucking shitposter. It's okay, I forgive you, getting buttraped by your dad must really fucking suck, but that's no reason to trash SamFlam, you fucking buttrape incest victim.
It's getting better, as long as the fucking mods stay away, we can even save an IRC infested roach thread like this for glorious SamFlam, which was objectively the best anime of 2013
when is this show going to turn into perfect blue?
Everyone out of shitpost thread, if you like Sam Flam come to pro-Sam Flam non-shitpost thread
