Samurai Flamenco thread.
Where the fuck is this show going to go next even.
Post-Apocalyptic Japan? Space? Super Robot?

All three.

I wouldn't be surprised, it seems to keep trying to outdo itself. I imagine we'll end with people turning into demons and killing other humans, while the MC is being lusted after by a hermaphrodite.

Let's just leave the discussion of whether Samurai Flamenco is a bad show or not aside and just assume it is.

One thing we need to accept is that it is bad in a very unique and exceptional way. Usually, when anime gets awful it's either in a Code Geass-esque trainwreck-y way or just in a plain generic haremshit romcom garbage manner. However, Samumenco is a different beast altogether. When you examine the different parts independently, you see a lot of interesting ideas executed in a competent manner. The tokusatsu parody jokes, the early slice of parts that were relatively realistic, the questions raised about heroes etc. However, the transition between these parts are often extremely awkward.

One second, you're watching goofy action between people wearing deliberately wacky clothes, a second later you're seeing super serious discussions about the destruction of Japan. Within the episode, from episode to episode, from arc to arc, constant genre shifts. But, you know what? It just works. It's an extremely inconsistent mess. But it just works somehow. It transcends the good and bad dichotomy and achieves something entirely different, and I don't mean this in a so-bad-it's-good way. At the end of the day, perhaps consistency and relative realism we so desire in fiction is just a needless distraction. Samumenco achieves what fiction should be, and that is being an entertaining spectacle. It is truly the Madoka of the Aku no Hana genre and a post-Yamakanist dissection of Evangelion.

If this is following Sentai conventions to a T then where is the mysterious x warrior who will job the fuck out of the flamengers singlehandedly, join and then be completely useless?

If it hasn't been spoiled for you already you should probably get the fuck out of the thread until you're caught up.

You should try watching SDF Macross or other shows that aired in the last century. You wouldn't complain about QUALITY.

But your example is ill-chosen. That was actually good enough in addition to being crazy, which is not what "usually" happens at all. There were some pretty interesting ideas there too, even if they're often rushed as well. Which makes your Samurai Flamenco description a bit less unique, since CG was also an entertaining spectacle in its own right that just works.
