If we assume that because of the revelation of his parents’ deaths, Samurai Flamenco begins his fall into a complete mental breakdown at this point in the story, the rest of the story can be interpreted in a very different fashion: Samurai Flamenco’s ongoing delusion.
While it could be argued that everything from the drug bust on is simply all in Samurai Flamenco’s head while he rocks back and forth in the corner of a padded room, I think it’s more likely that we are seeing events happening in the real world as Samurai Flamenco sees them in his delusional state. There was no ape monster, just a drug dealer that shot a cop. There are no monsters. Rather, Samurai Flamenco is tracking down related drug dealers one by one, killing them, and leaving his cop sidekick to handle the mess. Then, when the big bad — i.e., the drug kingpin — kidnaps and tortures the people close to Samurai Flamenco, Samurai Flamenco is finally able to track him down and kill him also. This also is the point where Samurai Flamenco reveals his secret identity to the world.
And from that point on — the Power Rangers arc where everything becomes insanely surreal — he may be in a padded cell rocking as he daydreams about running through the streets with a team of like-minded vigilantes, killing off the baddies they come across. Or maybe the vigilante team scenario is really happening, and it is only his delusional spiral downward that sees it from a Power Rangers perspective. I honestly don’t know.
Kotaku has a point and if its real then this is the AOTY must watch for years to come.
Why in the world are going to Kotaku?
Haven't read the article, but I've been wondering the same thing for a while now. Especially with Beyond Flamenco...
This is about what i'd expect from the people who thought SAO was genius.
>And as the series, to this point, has only covered a several month period in Samurai Flamenco’s life, this means that all this was developed and built in this time.
were they just not listening to all the talk about how the flamengers has been planned for years? like, every other episode?
That could be just samflam's mind.
Pastebin or fuck off.
Come on, OP. Don't make this lengthy b8 too obvious.
That said, the whole 'it's all a coma dream' or its many variations is such a fucking dumb and predictable theory. I've seen it around the threads a few times and it's the kind of shit only 7th graders would find legitimately interesting and novel. I don't watch Samumenco and endured the flamengers to be greeted with predictability. I'm crossing my fingers that Manglobe's still got a few more interesting twists before the series ends.
