There are people right now who aren't watching Samurai Flamenco.
This fucking show, man.
They set it up perfectly for Goto to become a hero.
It has gone beyond a mere trainwreck. The train has now gone off the rails so much it is soaring into space on a magical adventure through unknown lands.
I don't even know what to think anymore. Godspeed you ridiculous mess.
It is bad when you cross the line once.
When you cross the line ten times you become revolutionary.
This is how I feel about the show. I almost dropped it back then, and the Power Rangers arc was boring as fuck, but these latest episodes are just so crazy that I can't stop watching it.
It bored me out of my mind. 2/10, would not keep going after 3 episodes.
That's the whole fucking point. All the mecha shows like valverave and whatever shit is on this season were terrible and I dropped it.
I'm loving SamFlam because they are the Madoka of sentai, pushing the boundary.
Don't fuck with this, Prime Minister.
I don't know if I want to watch it anymore.
Anybody else pop an artery here?
HAHA. If the first episodes bored you REALLY SHOULD GIVE IT A TRY.
That was adorable.
If I could count all the times Mari has made Moe cry this far i'd probably go on a massacre with no end in sight untill I get delusional enough to fully believe one of my victims was and will forever be her.
I can't. I dropped it after it went full power rangers/super sentai with a whole squad of cliches. It was better when he was fighting thieves and petty criminals.
Just finished the episode, probably by far my favourite, so far.
I don't want to get off Samumenco's wild ride.
It's pathetic. Mari hasn't done anything but whine. The only real sign of change in her from last season is that she looked a little guilty when she saw Moe.
I reluctantly dropped it after episode 13 because I had too much shit on my plate. Were the last two episodes good enough to pick it back up?
Also that new OP is fucking shit.
Why does Moe have to suffer?
The new episode made the entire ride worth it. Only problem in it was not enough 'murica jokes.
Man if Mr. Justice actually sung the star spanged banner in horrible engrish I would have came so hard.
They did it. Those glorious motherfuckers managed to bring shit back around full circle.
AMERICA, FUCK YEAH
>expect Samumenco to go back to Samurai Flamenco instead of Flamengers
>this shit happens
>expect everything to be a dream/show
>it is kinda something like that
>but the prime minister is a fucking alien from outer space or something holy shit
Manglobe, I don't even know anymore.
I'm laughing so hard. Still no clue what's going on but I'm fucking enjoying the ride. And hopefully Goto becomes relevant again. Do we get the real OP sequence next week?
>Akira Ishida in charge of not being a colossal homo and dying
I think so. They bullshitted about the opening "not being finished", but in truth they didn't want to produce an opening for an arc that would last only a couple more episodes.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

We call them "people with taste".
Requesting gif of Green adjusting his helmet like he would adjust his glasses.
Think of this as an opportunity to draw criticism from a medium.
I think this is allegorical, but gee, I can't quite put my finger on it.
Yeah dude watch so epic KlK instead
>Man if Mr. Justice actually sung the star spanged banner in horrible engrish I would have came so hard.
Yeah, I have no idea why the pussed out on that.
I sort of stopped watching at the end of S1 and completely forgot about it.
People told me there was QUALITY all over the place and I didn't bother with it.
Still worth finishing?
There's only one season.
You can't handle the FREEDOM
Is this really Watchmen now? I dropped it just before Power rangers, but I may pick it up if this is true.
I meant the first cour, after King Torture died.
>I sort of stopped watching at the end of S1
>Calling cours a season
You sicken me
You know how Superman, Goku or John Carter are actually strong just because the condition on their planets make them stronger than the inhabitants of the world they go to? That's what Mister Justice is.
They better be saving all the money for the last episodes.
>cyborg masayoshi vs the Jap PM
It's whatever the fuck Manglobe thinks of next now.
I may not be able to, but I think this truck can
Well right now it's kind of Marvel Civil War. It's heading into watchmen territory.
You're doing God's work, son
What's the secret behind the Flamenco?
I'm not watching it but have been thinking about picking it up. I've been archiving the episodes for later enjoyment.
Which Flamenco and which secret?
After all of these episodes, I STILL don't think we've matched the ridiculousness level of Battle Fever J.
But I'm still hopeful.
You'll find out soon enough.
Will sumurai flamenco learn flamenco for real? Will he even become a swordman?
>thinks of next
This was all planned from the start, check the promo art.
What's the premise of this show? Why should I watch it? Why should I care that people don't?
Oh trust me, I would be Daiz would get off his ass and translate the new episode. Bad enough that I have to wait on his shitty release as it is.
>What's the premise of this show?
Check the OP picture
>Why should I watch it?
If you don't like the premise then you shouldn't
>Why should I care that people don't?
>trying to make people watch this garbage
It would be muge- Wait, that's actually the coolest idea ever.
>There are dumb losers who aren't
I don't see people being coerced into watching.
I never picked this up, is this pretty much Valvrave but with superheroes?
Valvrave's got nothing on this.
Valvrave is a trainwreck, SamFlam is a roller coaster.
It's like Valvrave, only good
Samurai Flamenco is a train that has gone off the trails but it keeps going on.
This show is getting JoJo level bizarre.
Except the characters here are actually likeable (except Mari)
SamFlam is a train that got derailed but landed on another set of rails and the conductor planned it
Without a seasonal moeblob to tide me over I will check this out. I can never get over the half the shows I watch and manga I read is purely for ironic purposes so I can circlejerk over how stupid and hilarious the plot is online with strangers.
What can there be after american superheroes?
The QUALITY is there, no way to miss it.
But if you´re a sucker for /m/ clichés and twists, you won´t want to stop watching
I agree, but rather it is like the conductor also saw an opportunity to try this while changing tracks.
We need more tracks!
Try some thing along 4 lines and the conductor playing some bass with them.
Mari is best character though.
>What can there be after american superheroes?
Slow down; there's a whole stable full of 'em to go through.
What a twist!
No, we need better train.
When are they going to fuck
RUNNING IN THE 40's
Remember when we thought all the monster stuff was just a movie shoot and the show would actually be good again after it finished?
>implying it's not good
COME ON' INVADE POLAND WITH ME
It was pretty much a movie shoot and the show is off the walls good.
Is Samurai Flamenco AOTY 2013, AOTY 2014 or both? It's a shame that the last two AOTY aired through two years so they're usually not taken into account into polls of neither year.
You should always do polls in the year that it finished but wen you think about it later on you rank it in the year that it started?
I think we all know who's behind this.
No one thinks about AOTY of the previous year in April.
The only time Superheroes were actively used as propaganda was in WWII. They didn't do much for Vietnam or Iraq, no matter how much Iran bitches about 300.
Well then I'm not sure. It makes no sense to judge it before it finishes but it's categorized in the year that it started.
What if we got a Miss America character
and it's Goto's girlfriend
but it's actually Kaname
that last part
Kaname in Drag?
You lost me there, anon.
>but it's actually Kaname
Only during jumping shots.
so who in this anime ISNT kaname
New MMM album when?
>thinking /a/ is a hivemind.
It was my AOTY 2013. 2014 has barely started yet but it's already looking good
I hope it's Red Axesu
Is there an old album?!
Kaname's suits aren't fancy enough.
It's 2 songs and the corresponding instrumental versions.
Blue is okay, right? ;_;
Yes, he's locked up with the other flamengers.
One can hope.
100 bucks say he's gonna get brainwashed
Really? Didn't see that myself.
I hope not.
JUST WHEN I THOUGH THIS SHOW COULDN'T GET ANY BETTER
MOTHERFUCKING CAPTAIN AMERICA SHOWS UP
Because it wasn't shown yet.
I'm not denying that possibility, I actually think it's pretty likely to happen.
Oh. So he could be dead.
I know there's some literary term for this. What's it called when a story's end is somewhat like its beginning?
Also is Beyond Flamenco MC from the future?
The only thing this show is missing is time travel shenanigans.
You're thinking of an enigmatic narrative, I think.
IN REALITY, ALL YOUR HEROES ARE PAWNS TO THE GOVERNMENT
Actually, I think a government capable of conjuring up giant alien volcano-destroying spacecraft in total secrecy probably IS capable of controlling 6 billion people. Without the need for this ridiculous pretense.
God I love this show.
they do this almost every episode
America wouldn't stand for Japan controlling the world though, unless the final boss is AMERICA.
How much longer until the Urobuchian plot twist?
And space travel. We need a battle on the moon or mars.
8 episodes ago
is it just me or arcs are getting shorter? we had nippon kick ass for like 8 eps, kamen rider for like 4, and power rangers for 3. by this rate we are going full ttgl by the end, we have 7 episodes left.
By episode 17 we'll get 3 arcs an episode.
>3 arc an episode.
Like Mister Justice said, Japan was doing what others countries had done before. So it's likely that governments from several countries are in this together.
Sorry, can't into English.
>Masayoshi turns into a cyborg
>Then gets telekinetic powers
>Then goes to space
>In the same scene
I wanna a Mizuki x Hazama end. If that happen i'd get SamFlam's logo tattoo'ed in my ripped as fuck chest.
>mfw The government was behind From Beyond
Is this the best show of 2013 or the worst?
Hazama only has eyes for Justice. Mister Justice.
>Is this the best show of 2013 or the worst?
Can't it be both?
Both. 2013's Psycho-Pass.
2014 will be Psycho-Pass Season 2.
Can I skip the power rangers arc? Where should I start watching again?
No you can't.
Where you left off.
Worst question 2014
If you want to pick SamFlam back up you might as well watch the whole thing.
GOTO'S GONNA BECOME A HERO AND HE'S GONNA GET HIS UNIFORM. WE'RE GETTING MASAYOSHI'S POWER ARMOR. WE'RE GETTING PROFESSOR SAN BACK. I'M HYPED AS FUCK.
Now we just need more rich-indian-san
I hope you're right about all of that, but I have no idea what to expect anymore.
I knew this was coming and yet I watched the episode after your spoiler
As he got shot I remember your post and couldn´t stop laughing.
So what's this new arc? Are we doing early Heisei Rider or are we doing Watchmen?
Probably a combination of the two with some extra shit thrown in the mix.
He is browsing 4chan.
We are going to get a fight on the moon right?
Yeah and it should have New World Symphony 4th movement playing
NO, NOT DELINQUENT MOON!
I want her to ride me.
I literally started clapping.
RIP Mr. Justice. ;_;7
I claped evry tiem
This show is too much, I don't know if I can last 7 more episodes.
YOU WERE JUST LIKE ME
Hazama Is Useless Arc: 3 episodes
Kick-Ass Arc: 3.5 episodes
King Torture Arc: 3.5 episodes
Flamengers Arc: 4.5 episodes
TRYING TO MAKE HISTORY
Why does everyone compare it to Kickass and not Super?
They need to make this last arc last for the rest of the series and finish it with a fight on the moon against Big Leader. It ends with big leader blowing up the moon with 120% power or whatever and samflam and gotou deorbiting from the explosion and reentering earth's atmosphere just to parachute down to the secret base where professor-san was making their gear.
Super never stops being critical of the concept of superheroes and superheroism. Kick-Ass (the movie, at least) eventually drops the satire and allows its characters to be unambiguous forces for good.
It's filtered through a Japanese mindset and superhero tradition, but it's much closer to Kick-Ass than Super. Though now maybe we're getting into Watchmen territory.
Will this end with it all being a delusion/dream/tv-series?
No, ManGlobe want to mark their bankruptcy in the most fun way possible.
No, the government controlling everything makes sense.
Remember when Goto asked about Guillotine Gorilla's investigation and the captain or whoever just shrugged it off?
holy shit, and they set up that chief-for-a-day thing with Hazama all to kickstart their approval
I know, right?
Spin-off manga when.
Who could it be?
>that broken rib was totally worth it
Big Leader is the Prime Minister himself, right?
The prime minister is obviously the final boss. With his nanomachines, son.
Konno works for the government. That's why he knows everything that is going on.
Konno is the biggestfucking wildcard in the series right now.
It's hard to see the rails from space.
This still doesn't explain how the government got crazy alien technology.
There's some kind of ridiculous double-bluff coming up, Prime Minister is aliens.
Getting knocked off the rails and riding the train into space is arguably a lot more fun
>Prime Minister is aliens
Exactly. Fight on the moon.
It's one crazy thing after another, what the hell man? I bet the creators are having a giggle making this shit.
>This still doesn't explain how the government got crazy alien technology.
I don't think that's necessary anymore. I'm sure the world government is reptoids or something.
>yfw America has the technology all along
I don't know why but I was reminded of the last MGR boss when he said that.
I hope https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAqVIjxwyzc plays while Hazama fights the Prime Minister on the moon
What will you do if the big bad guy does actually end up being Shekelbergstein?
>not RAMPU SHEIDO
The second OP has just as much passion, so it could actually work as a final boss song. If either OP1 or OP2 play during the final fight, this will be AOTY
>Prime Minister "gets a call" from Big Leader
>It's the same exact fucking thing that happened in Murder of Roger Ackroyd
Well I' mdownloading the episodes that I missed, this better be woth it.
>Final Boss is Gotou's girlfriend, and Mari fights her on the moon for his ai ai ai
This would be great
>This better be worth it
It's fun. You'll enjoy it.
I'M GOING OFF THE RAILS ON A CRAZY TRAIN.
It's a great crazy train though. I'm glad to be here with you Flamenco Buddies.
>not fly me to the moon
It's a piece of shit, but an enjoyable one.
You've already been spoiled, though.
Did you stand with solemn respect to the national anthem of the greatest country on Earth, anons?
Can somebody make an edit of Back to the Future with SamFlam captioned as "Rails? Where we're going, we don't need rails."
I'm not sure if it's better to watch it weekly or marathon it.
He didn't sing it so it didn't count.
This is a hotblooded sentai, not religious symbolism and orange juice
Greatest Jojo villain.
I think SamFlam counts as 2013 and 2014 as well.
>not hearing the words in your head
>not feeling the patriotism within your beating heart
>AOTY twice in a row
This series gives me that same sense of excitement I had as a kid watching Power Rangers, it definitely deserves it

God save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
I don't want this show to end. It's so amazing.
The sales are good enough that we'll get a second season and that the manga definitely won't get cancelled.
>yfw this song plays in the last episode
>The sales are good enough
Is he a Broncos fan? Who am I kidding, of course he's a Pats fan.
Rogue Cop Goto is coming
He will be the greatest character of the decade
And then when Goto couldn't get any better his girlfriend shows up and preorders triple
Goto's Girlfriend will comprise the entire last arc
Yeah, fuck the rest that hates this show.
I'm loving the shit out of it and i'll probably cry manly tears at the end of such a great ride and knowing that not a single anime will surprise me again like this and this threads won't happen again.
That's a good description of the show.
>The sales are good enough that we'll get a second season and that the manga definitely won't get cancelled.
I know he's trolling on sales but...Did I miss something?
I'm want Flamenco Ruby to come back. Mizuki is very cute.
You're really, really good at detecting sarcasm.
The manga was announced before the show even aired and the first chapter is out. Its awful.
I want them to go to America. I want an America Arc.
He's Definitely a Cowboy's fan, America's Team.
It's one of my favourite anime of all time. Easily. Gone are the days where I could guess the plot.
You what? I didn't even know it had a manga. Fuck. I'd buy that.
Don't invest your precious backlog time. The manga is the embodiment of fujoshi pandering shit
Buy the BDs instead.
How was MISTAH JUSTICE so fluent in Japanese?
Space belongs to America.
I know this is /a/,but the Cowboys haven't been America's Team for many, many years now.
JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU FINALLY HAVE A GRIP ON WHAT'S HAPPENING, YOU GET FLOWN RIGHT OFF! GOD DAMN, I mean seriously, I just...I just...I don't even KNOW anymore man...
Really? To be honest I could go for anything that will carry the SamFlam name on a little while.
Why not both? Will the BD's have subs? I've never actually bought animu. Only merch,
So what I'm hearing from this thread is that I should watch SamFlam
>Flamen Robo's fist punches the real From Beyond's space ship and they invade Japan as pay back
The leader of the real From Beyond isn't Beyond Flamenco
It's Beyond Torture
Who is actually Goto's Girlfriend
God no, that's a terrible idea. Unless you really like trainwrecks.
>not having watched SamFlam already
Yes. Marathon it now.
I always have the most fun watching Manglobe shows. They keep stuff interesting.
Also, people keep saying that this show would have had better sales if it were still going kickass style but to be honest it probably wouldn't have.
I'm really behind on everything this season because school was tough. School is no longer tough, so I am free to catch on.
>Not liking trainwrecks
They've always been America's Team. It's a nickname coined for them, not an actual title that's given to a team for whatever reason...
I think they'd be lousy either way.
I will miss the fact that we will never see what could have been. But this is one of my favourite anime of all time anyway.
Hopefully you haven't been spoiled already, but even if you have I'm sure you'll enjoy the ride.
You should stick with at least 2 trainwrecks a season. At least.
It's not a trainwreck, it's a calculated train explosion/fireworks show
He's a black American who shoots beams of justice from his chest, can use a bat to knock policemen hundreds of feet in the air into a helicopter without injuring said officer and smuggled a freedom semi into Japan after fighting off constructed aliens, monsters that were the tools of the U.S. govermnent.
He used Rosetta stone and took a class at his local community college of course.
This is off topic but is there anything else worth watching from last season?
In the back of my mind, I always kept thinking "Yknow, what IF From Beyond is just some government scheme? Seriously, why would the government fund a fucking Sentai squad to address alien invaders?". Then again I'd say to myself "Nah, I doubt they'd go that far. We've had so much shit happen already, no way they'd pile on some more..."
THEN IT FUCKING HAPPENS!
I know that, and the majority of Americans don't want them to be called it anymore, and here's a poll with a very small sample that says so.
Are there any Samumenco figures out or planned? I want one.
Steelers are Nice Justice.
There were a couple standout shows, it was a lot better than winter at least.
But Steeling is wrong Anon.
puns are the lowest form of humor
Still a nickname, doesn't matter what a small group of people think. Most football fans are casual idiots anyways.
But every good show from last season is still airing except Miss Monochrome, and this season added a few good ones too.
Somebody should make a Samura Flameco AMV with Ozzy's Crazy Train.
>listening to Reddit-tier dadrock
>watching or mentioning AMVs, even ironically
The article actually got it wrong, it was 23% thought they deserved it, 60% did not, 17% unsure. There's a link to the actual poll results at the end, and to your last statement, I could say the same about anime fans and be just as correct.
>Hello! I am a Newfag! I just parrot everything that someone else on /a/ has said before, and don't have any of my own opinions!
Pretty sure a lot of people on /a/ watch them occasionally and just don't admit to it.
No I'm parroting /mu/, retard.
AMVs should go without saying.
The fact that you think that it's impossible for any AMV to ever be good ever shows that you're just parroting opinions from /a/.
Most AMVs are shit, I won't deny. But there are some honestly superb ones. Link related.
Is AOTY 2013 and probably AOTY 2014. Watch it.
But AOTY 2013 was Aku no Potato.
AOTY 2013 - Samumenco
AOTY 2014 - Nagi no Asakura
Greatest Train Wreck - Code Geass 2, but Samumenco is one twist away to pass that
that shit was eerie when flamenco is calling his friends and no one is picking up, and all you hear is captain america humming
I don't know anon, this is pretty bad so far. I'd rather watch a good OP than a fanfic along to an iTunes library in 128kbps.
So, is there any resolution with Mari, Ruby & Moe?
Will they reassemble as Flamenco Girls?
>nagi no asakura
what? i dropped after episode 1, did it get good?
Why the fuck would you comment on a short YouTube video before you watched the entire thing? You stupid fuck.
Did you actually watch it, or did your ignorant generalized hatred of AMVs that you picked up because you think it helps you fit in make you automatically hate it because it's an AMV?
Code Geass R2 was a legitimate train wreck because they were trying to keep it serious but it was just plain ridiculous. When a show is intentionally off the rails it's called a roller coaster.
The final arc will probably bring them back, along with Goto's girlfriend and Hazama's parents.
It improved greatly.
Holy shit, the freedom this episode was from beyond what I would have expected.
USA USA USA USA
I fucking love Natsume but that was pretty boring.
2nd cour is great.
fair enough, what about valvwreck?
Oh God it doesn't end up a huge trainwreck like Galilei Donna
> I could say the same about anime fans and be just as correct.
Well yeah, that's my point. America's Team is a nickname, it isn't a title that is just give to any team, and there are idiots out there who don't know that. For anime, there are still people over the age of 10 who like Naruto. Doesn't mean Naruto is good.
What happened in Galilei Donna?
Because god forbid that I make a judgment on something that's supposedly visually/sonically "superb", yet it in a max of 360p stream of a really generic guitar riff and extremely boring visuals.
Why are you getting so frustrated? Calling me a "stupid fuck" because I don't like your poor-quality streams of off-topic garbage?
u guys died to fagiri
I actually watched it you defensive tool, stop advertising your shitty AMVs on /a/.
Absolutely nothing happened.
Only 20% of the questions the anime posed were resolved
It wasn't supposed to be exciting. Did you see the second half of the video, with the pages being filled in by line-art and color? That wasn't originally fucking in Natsume. The guy who made that did that himself. Think about that for a moment.
I'm just upset that so many people on /a/ have an ignorant generalized hatred of lots of things just because someone else on /a/ told them that they should hate it if they want to fit in on /a/. It's a completely rotten form of "board culture" or whatever the fuck.
Don't just automatically deride every AMV in existence like you've seen every single one ever made.
Valvrave definitely was a trainwreck but what kind of trainwreck is more spectacular? One where the train has a great track record for a long time and then suddenly falls of a bridge over the deepest gorge on the continent or one where the train starts off with half the wheels missing and topples over after 5 minutes?
>Special move: JUSTICE TACKLE
>Follow it up with TACKLE
How terrifying. Did that one guy ever bring out the 21-inch barreled revolver again?
The most ridiculous courtroom scene I've ever seen
I guess we agree to agree then?
Justice home run is OP. You know they're going to have to nerf it.
Your understanding of how opinions work is completely warped. Everyone else isn't somehow brainwashed just because you disagree with them.
I don't even remember nksolvi water
Even Phoenix Wright as more realistic than that pile.
The guy who automatically rejected the concept of any AMV ever being good is brainwashed though, and that's what started this all.
>This guy literally edited a video HIMSELF. Think about it!
Wow anon, you're so persuasive. I'm just saying most AMVs are poor audio/visual quality, have poor music choices, and are mostly a mish-mash or slight edit or pre-existing footage.
What about that is so exhilarating to you is beyond me and apparently Beyond Flamenco.
A lot of things happened in Galilei Donna.
And a lot of nothing happened in Galilei Donna.
>Code Geass R2 was a legitimate train wreck because they were trying to keep it serious but it was just plain ridiculous. When a show is intentionally off the rails it's called a roller coaster.
Actually, you'd be wrong about both of those. The staff knew a lot of things in R2 were ridiculous and funny, but that's why they put them in the show. That goes for stuff like Orange, Ninja Maid and Rocketmoto, among others, so don't pretend it was meant to be serious all the time. Lelouch himself had a serious personality, yes, but you're completely looking at this backwards if you extend that to the creators.
Those aren't slight edits. That shit took a lot of work. I happen to like Coldplay so I'm fine with the music choice. But seriously, you can't tell me that that editing wasn't superb.
I didn't say it was bad, maybe my expectations were too high because of what you said and because I saw it was Natsume. Calm the fuck down anon, stop getting so defensive because people don't share your opinion about an AMV.
>Don't just automatically deride every AMV in existence like you've seen every single one ever made.
That doesn't mean much. I tend not to like normalfag reality TV shows about people being terrible for money. I haven't watched every single one ever made, but the ones I have watched have been terrible.
Sure, there's a possibility that one out there is not terrible. But it's a slim possibility. The same is true for AMVs.
This show.., it just keeps happening... There is literally no break between these arcs...
That's a good way to describe it.
If I could redo this show, I would wait until it's over and then marathon the whole thing. I think I would like it much more that way.
I might actually start doing that from now on.
At least stop being a cynical pessimistic jackass about everything all the time, then. Don't say something's impossible when you even admit that there's the possibility.
But then you don't get to experience these threads...
If you watched it all at once you wouldn't have the same reaction when you get a new twist every week.
Can someone post the pic of the writer where it shows the 3 angles of his mask? I just tried finding it on Google and I had no luck.
You'd end up spoiled on the twists.
Sure, but it's the same sort of "possible" as the planet Venus suddenly freezing over. It's "possible" but, realistically, it's not going to happen.
I don't know. There are very few shows which I'm very happy I manage to watch as they're airing, and this is one of them. The thrill of being surprised and speculating every week really adds to the fun.
What evidence do you have for such quantitative statements? Do you have any real proof of such a statement besides your anecdotes? You're just generalizing off of your own experiences, which is amazingly ignorant.
This is a great AMV.
Because he is the hero that /a/ deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. Samurai Flamenco.
I dunno, though.
Baccano! is one of my favourite shows, and part of that was because I could just keep watching when the plot was progressing, which was always. The whole show felt pretty exciting.
I'll probably just end up continuing with this show as I have for the past 15 or 16 weeks.
That sucked. This is better.
The writer wears a mask?
It has to be Goto's girlfriend.
Will he ever reveal his true identity? I bet it's some famous guy who doesn't want free publicity for his name. That seems like something an "artist" would do.
What is he's just cosplaying as King Torture?
Fair enough, I marathoned Baccano a couple years ago so I know what you're talking about.
I wish I could do that with Zvezda right now.
I'll never regret that I picked up SamFlam when it first aired. This show is the most fun.
I'd say Valvrave was a failed rollercoaster that ended up looking like a trainwreck. SamFlam is supposed to be a rollercoaster too but sort of works better so far, except it could become either since it's right along the border and reactions are extremely divisive.
He's Beyond Torture.
They just need to give us a good ending. VVV's ending was stupid.
Samurai Flamenco is one of those cases where a parody becomes indistinguishable from what it's making fun of.
Does anyone know if the BD has subs?
Yes. We all did.
We watchmen now.
This is extremely true. I don't really mind either. The same thing happened to Neptunia.
BUT WHO'S TO JUDGE
If that's the case, someone must be regretting this stunt at this point. With those sales and all.
I just want to get off this ride. This is 2crazy4me
It's Hatte Saburo
The whole S2 was stupid, and seemed improvised. For example. Marie's amnesia was never foreshadowed in S1. This kind of thing is what made it a trainwreck.
PRO TIP: This show really is the Madoka of shonen. [spoiler[Boring as shit for the entire first cour.[/spoiler:lit]
I'd question that. Lack of foreshadowing applies to SamFlam too and in and of itself isn't trainwrecky. Plus I liked Marie's episode, so fuck you.
You're gonna ride it to the end and you're gonna like it.
This fucking episode, I was literally clapping at 'NICE JUSTICE' and 'BAD JUSTICE', as well as 'JUSTICE TACKLE', then out comes the fucking 'murrica-truck and humming the american anthem, and then he fucking bats a nigga into a fucking helicopter, 10/10 episode. Can't wait till Vigilante Goto comes, and to find out why Beyond Flamenco was called 'Flamenco', as well as the Senator Prime Minister fight thats sure to happen. Nanomachines, son.
What lack? If you mean changes in its vibe I'd say that is on purpose. If you mean lack of foreshadowing of plot elements I would say that is outright wrong, and everything was foreshadowed except the gorilla.
Something is telling me this is a post from MAL.
If anything would support that Gen worked on SamuFlamu would be the fact that he's working on Gaim right now.
This anime feels like a Mathroyska doll.
We are marching in the forties, is a new way to set 'em free
Yeah, from the inside out.
>implying last boss isn't Goto's girlfriend
>implying Goto's girlfriend isn't the PM
It'd make sense for it to be Urobuchi, remember they originally wanted to keep secret that he was writing Madoka.
However if it really IS him then maybe the Madoka team really dodged a bullet by accidentally leaking his name. Because, those sales...
Who was MISTAH JUSTICE's seiyuu?
I want Goto's girlfriend to be voiced by Norio Wakamoto
The hat team is my favourite.
If you marathon shit you miss the threads.
My god, these threads.
Urobuchi has nothing to do with samurai flamenco. The main writer for the show is hideyuki kurata who wrote now and then here and there. Takahiro has also written 4 episodes of the show (episode 6,7,10 and 15)
Speaking of Goto's girlfriend, I noticed the very first scene of the first episode is Goto looking at his cellphone and going "uh?" before hearing a cat in the alley and finding Masayoshi. I wonder if that's significant.
>AH KNEW IT ALL ALONG
Sure you did.
Looking back at the first thread is great
Screenplay is not the script. And Omori has only did the screenplay of 3 episodes.
I love how there is no hint of derision despite being a ridiculous parody of everything superhero.
Nobody said you had to believe me.
I dropped too. Not picking it back up. Fucking NTR shit.
No, the real writer is a secret.
>Looking back at the first thread is great
Such simple expectations. So innocent dreams.
>Goto's girlfriend organized everything
Everything is explained then.
It was a simpler time.
I can already see that the next twist is that Hazama was in coma since the events of king torture arc and that all those new episodes were a dream to the rite of passage to the next world
She also typed and sent this amount of text in like 3 seconds. At first I thought it was just anime being anime, but now I'm not so sure anymore.
So are we entering the bear robots arc or the motorhead arc?
also who do we suspect nekomimi moon will be?
No, that's just Japanese women being Japanese. 3 seconds is honestly slow for this.
What if Goto's girlfriend is completely irrelevant to the plot?
This is going to go into V for Vendetta territory, I can feel it. Goto is going to be arrested for being friends with Hazama, be tortured, and we'll find out Hazama faked the whole thing so that he could turn Goto into a revolutionary.
I would not put it past Manglobe. They've gotta know the internet speculation mill would be spinning like crazy about her, about that random kid, about Mari x Goto, etc. It would be just perfect for them to do nothing with all of those things.
So what I'm gathering is this like if the Karate Robo Zaborgar reboot and Devil May Cry 3 had a love child who had a socially awkward childhood but lived up to his parents dreams once he hit college.
You can't fool me, From Beyond. I'm on to you.
>I miss you! I miss you so much!
There's no way she's not dead.
SamFlam sold 281 BDs this past week. Ouch.
>V for Vendetta
Dear god, I still have one of those dumbass masks. I swear I'm on a list somewhere for buying one.
So at what point will Gainax take over production?
Still better than the second best rollercoaster of 2013
Hey guys. What if:
Goto's girlfriend is actually a rookie TV show writer/director and everything that has happened is part of her convoluted script?
It'll pick up once the series finishes.
Why didn't you buy it?
That would be the biggest twist ever.
>implying Manglobe isn't mid-90s Gainax reincarnated.
The akame ga kill and majikoi one.
>tfw it won't be KT but PM to kidnap Manager-chan to force SF to strike before the other people he is with are ready and he goes alone
Because what is a toku show without romance? Shit.
captcha: constitute sorybarf
I want to believe. I wanna get congratulated.
I'm not talking about omori. Hideyuki is listed as series compisition so he is the one writing the story.
So nostalgic, and none of us had a clue we were in for such a wild ride.
I bought the BDs
Does that mean he wrote the original treatment though? Because the day-to-day screenwriting only really works to fill the time the series takes to map between the major plot points in the overall series treatment.
Then you are the hero we need.
I remember your scans, doing God's work anon. I'm going to buy Vol.1 when I get paid in a little under 2 weeks too bad that won't be enough to save Manglobe from bankruptcy.
Source? I don't think this is true and that you're just bullshitting me.
seriously? He's everywhere recently..
I'm not exactly sure how it works usually to be honest. I'm guessing the person tasked with series composition writes all the key points in the story,how they play out,characters personalities and other important details. Then script writers fill in the details along the way. Takahiro has been the one doing all of the crazy episodes so he may have a hand in it too. It may be a joint effort between him,omori and hideyuki but noone will know for sure until proven otherwise.
So I guess the "the Prime Minister is King Torture!" theories weren't too far off after all.
I think you mean 9. This shit is great.
Goto will save hazama's as
but does he?
after 1 drama filled episode we see a cybernetic being shooting everyone who wants to get their hand on hazama
Its Goto, and now he's a cyborg that is equipped with stationaries and office supplies
feast your eys on GOTOCOP! He is the law!
at least it isn't moe cancer, like every other show
That Moe is the chemo curing the cancer.
>Parodies everything perfectly
>Still makes the main characters interesting and keeps you in suspense
>Cheesy and ridiculous
>Fucking Mister Justice
>Monster Prime Minister
Why is this show great. This is how you do a parody and a love letter to a genre you love, not that garbage Imaishi shits out.
9/11 confirmed for inside job
I shed a tear while I ate my burger and watched this video
God Bless America
I finally get home from work and watch the episode, and people didn't like it.
What the fuck? The twist was actually good.
Official Thread Theme.
I do not regret riding on this railroad.
The last episode will be a giant space battle that literally travels through dimensions and time. Masayoshi literally gets demi-god like powers and is ripping the true final badguy apart who is Goto's gf who is also the president of America who killed his parents who is actually his grandfather but is also actually his manager. Then they kiss and go off to live in space together.
Also, they saved up the whole budget for it and it's 24 minutes of the best animation you've ever seen.
Manglobe please make this happen.
>Also, they saved up the whole budget for it and it's 24 minutes of the best animation you've ever seen.
Or it's live action.
>and people didn't like it
What? As far as I can tell, everyone who was already enjoying SF loved it.
>and people didn't like it
Nigga, what are you on about?
>superhuman politician orchestrates attacks on his own country to gain popularity with the people
Waiiiiiiiiiit a minute...
He probably means MAL, AS, or pretty much any other anime site that isn't /a/.
>Or it's live action.
Starring Shiraishi Minoru.
It's true. If I can find the source then I'll post it in a future samurai flamenco thread. Friend I got it from is asleep now.
kickass -> kamen -> rangers -> watchman
what next? wanted? resistance aganst Musolini PR?
>Starring Shiraishi Minoru
I'm fucking sold.
That's his combo chain
I think it'll either go Deus Ex or Gundam at the very end.
>deus ex or gundam
They're gonna be introducing anti-spirals in 2 episodes.
V for Vendetta
Most of the early posts in the thread were critical.
I guess I should've expected that since every new episode begins with kneejerk reactions before people warm up to it.
Justice League? With an underground rebel kinda feel?
I'm still bracing for Ultraman in the end
I remember talking about how long until Goto princess carries Masayoshi. Then I remeber talking about how badass the stapler was. Then I remember the KlKfags coming in to shitpost after furious George. Then I remember the Toku insanity and "is it a dream?" Then there was the rape shitposting. Then power rangers. Now America.
Aside from the rape shitposting, these threads have matched the show in fun and insanity. I can't remember the last time threads were this fun.
Does anyone in Japan even remember ultra man? If they do then that seems pretty likely.
What was the nip's reaction to this episode?
Code Geass S1
Half is live action, half is drawn in with amazing animation.
It was never the "klkfags", IRC.
Check the archives, they were literally saying "Oh man KlK was boring this week but this was hilarious. I watched the whole show so I could shitpost!"
Fucking kill yourself. KlKfags are literally cancer.
It's been so long since real fun.
It was never the "klkfags", IRC.
This show subverts my expectations in the weirdest way. I should know by now they will go full retard, but being a rational human being I can't accept that. I fucking love it. Depending on how it ends easily going in my top 5 anime.
I actually did drop it back then, I guess I'll marathon the rest this weekend.
THE RIGHT FROM WRONG
There you go again, bringing that up because all KlKfags know how to do is cry about IRC when in reality they don't even know what IRC is.
>It was never IRC
The threads beg to differ, faggot.
Different anon. I like KlK too, but it totally was. And KlK threads are hideous. Except for the occasional late night thread gone right, they are so obviously filled with underage little faggots, /v/turds and normalfags it's not even funny. Try looking at one Takarada thread and you'll see exactly what I mean. When those people get bored of their threads, they just shitpost somewhere else. This week, for example, it was Zvezda threads. Back then, Guillotine Gorilla was the hot topic and shitpost magnet.
The rape shitposting, on the other hand, was actually only sustained for so long because of a handful of very dedicated trolls, so it would make more sense if you wanted to call them IRC.
The level of whisky needs to get progressively lower.
As expected of a masterpiece.
Pretty sure this was originally about NGE.
Episode 15 should have a giant bottle of whiskey instead of a small one and the guy having an American shirt on.
I though it was Texhnolyze
It's a new bottle everytime.
you haven't even gotten to the monkey business yet
The Nips never really picked it up in the first place.
When they learn Urobuchi was the person who wrote the story they will.
That fucking twist
God I love the country that uses superheroes as news to take away from the evil things my government does.
I'm flattered that they think so highly of us.
It's watchmen time.
I was waiting for the show to stop being boring, and it finally did. The pacing in this is insane, it could go from shit to great in a week.
Is he talking about 9/11?
I marathoned all of Code Geass in a week, and didn't think it went that much off the rails, just a little bit.
I liked Outbreak Company which was one cour, but yeah I agree.
.png is fine, but there was no reason for it to be over 2MB.
Why are the Flamenco Girls puppets in the ED? Also, is Red Axe most probably going to be the ultimate enemy? He seems suspicious as fuck but I don't go to the threads.
I used mplayer2. How do I make the screenshots work better?
Konno is the scarf guy?
New suit for Hazama when?
Next episode is likely.
I'd say episode 17. 16 will be about Goto busting Hazama and co out of prison and Hazama meeting up with the professor again.
Well he looks like a hipster faggot somehow.
Mari returns next episode. Screencap this post.
Oh hey, it's a clueless /g/ parrot!
Will Blue be alright?
I want a Hazama x Manager ending.
Better safe than sorry.
Generally, one becomes a little tech savvy first, before deciding to refuse proprietary "invading" software.
Why? I think you have that opposite. Software freedom isn't just for tech wizzes.
I like the way you think,anon
I can honestly say that there has never been a twist that has blindsided me more than that.
Well. At least now it's the twist has been explained with the most recent twist.
Also, this thread is probably gonna 404 soon, so we should probably start heading over to >>101217012
