The theme song for this thread.
Who will Flamenco next?
I think you mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IjnoM5-mnw
What PM was going to say was "Flamenco is Goto's girlfriend".
How many times is SamFlam going to have a genre shift?
As many as it takes till you damn well love it.
Then it could have stopped shifting after the Gorilla.
you clearly didn't love it enough
>Starting off from Kickass to Kamen RIder to Super Sentai to Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
In before Ultraman reference ala...ULTRA FLAMENCO
Fuck this shit were going to space
>next it will shift into super robot, a la TTGL
They kept mentioning a Diet but looking at the PM I can tell that he definitely isn't on one so what was he talking about?
Guillotine Flamenco when?
>Mr Justice is an alien
My god this just keeps getting better and better
Until 100% support, duh.
>reminds me of Kaname
Red Axe confirmed for counter alien.
Well the previous episode was called "Fake Justice"...
I'm kind of tired, but I'm thinking that Beyond Flamenco's talk about
>What's even the point of taking over a country/world? You'd have to know how to govern and manage everything when you do so that it doesn't all fall apart.
might have something to do with the fact that the flamenco aliens have already taken over the heads of government everywhere but Japan. I can't think of for what purpose, though.
Anyone have .gifs of the Flamen Knuckle?
It was just a random talk to stall Flamenco long enough to make it suspicious.
i can't believe it, we were all joking when we said this was going full TTGL by the last episodes, but it's actually going to happen, also that speach of the prime minister reminded me of lordgenome with the aliens being the anti spiral.
I have no idea what's happening but I like it
It was a satiric line about how stupid the villains' plans are in these kinds of stories, don't take it too literally.
Beyond Flamenco and Torture were just pretenders as part of a ploy playing at being villains, like how Masayoshi was playing hero. Beyond Flamenco pointed out how silly and pointless it all is since a bunch of silly looking 'aliens' who look like they jumped out of a tv show wouldn't know how to manage a country
But Alien Flamenco is the real deal, beyond King Torture and From Beyond.
How can one series have so many plot twists after plot twists?
>I wanted 100% to become strongest prime minister in Iron Man suit!
>actually I had to set you guys up because all the other world governments are run by aliens sorry about that but now you fucked up everything
>Captain Justice is actually a alien
>suddenyl giant ufo above city
I dont know can I take this anymore. What sentai genre are we now?
What kind of fool do you take me for? He's Flamenco, HE'S Flamenco, YOU'RE Flamenco, I'M FLAMENCO! Are there any other Flamencos I should know about!?
Oh shit. Oh god, let it be true.
We Super Robot now, I hope.
>But Alien Flamenco is the real deal, beyond King Torture and From Beyond.
Everyone was saying that From Beyond is the real deal when it made it's entré. I'm 100% sure there will still be something beyond dat alien conspiracy.
WE FLAMENCO NOW
flamenco the bird reporting in
Space Sheriff. We Metal Heroes now.
>But Alien Flamenco is the real deal
People said the same thing about the President, and in this episode we got the Support Suit and another absurd twist. I'm sure that the aliens will be absurd and grotesque for the sake of satire as usual.
>flamenco is his soul
>FLAMENCO BIRDO GO
flamenco dance reporting in
can anyone make a gif of the big Flamenco Alien reveal?
My hear couldnt take it if broto was the big bad ;_;
Masayoshi and Goto playing Skid Row songs fucking when
I knew it, I'm surrounded by Flamencos!
There's a bunch of gifs in the almost dead thread.
Is next arc gonna be Flamenco with bird superpowers fighting against aliens?
>Prime Minister fought for true Justice against an alien pretending to be Justice and lost
the hero the world needed but didn't deserve;_;7
We Guyver now
I kind of wish this show got a video game. The boss fights would be amazing.
But you have also a time to attend to your schedule as a model, otherwise Ishihara will be mad.
>Bird Go jump of a bulding
I can fall into an Ishihara route, right?
Tony Stark ain't shit. All he did was make it easier for the Skrulls to invade. Wait who are we talking about?
This episode was pure bliss. Flamenco truly is the best time of the week.
It would be like a GTA/Zelda fusion with romantic routes,.
Streets and Urban elements like GTA, but character interaction, side quests and general fights like Zelda.
All types of Routes, and a clock timer where certain elements happen at a different time.
Also you have to sleep and eat well otherwise your physique will decrease and you won't be that "hot model" or stronger to kick some ass.
It would be a Asura's Wrath clone.
Why no Ishihara this episode? What's with that lame excuse about hiding her somewhere?
>Tengen Toppa Flamen Robo
He has kidnapped her and is tied in her basement.
He's constantly raping her, probably she's already pregnant.
Konno gave her to the aliens
>Mr Justice is an alien
That was really heartbreaking. My whole world is tumbling down.
So is Goto's girlfriend the alien flamenco boss
That fucking face.
>beyond From Beyond
>From Kickass to Kamen Rider, to Super Sentai, to Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
And the series will end with it just being one big sentai show that Hazama always wanted to star in.
All hail your Skrull overlords.
>Approval Ratings, Son!
The ends don't justify the means. He was fighting on the good guys side, but he was not one of the good guys.
He's gonna end up being the final boss who'll get defeated with a single punch.
What the fuck is this show anymore?
>we were all joking when we said this was going full TTGL
I wasn't joking at all. It's been a while since I stopped putting any limits to my expectation of how far they'll go with this.
You know what I mean.
>implying I was joking
That is the least likely thing that might happen but that's why it won't happen. The least likely choice would be just as obvious as the most likely choice as would the middles likely choice. If it were represented as a fraction with 1 being most likely and 0 being least likely this show likes to choose the 43/207 the likely choice.
There aren't any aliens in Metal Gear...yet.
>mfw I was saying we would eventually go into space even before guillotine gorilla showed up
Some people are just simply too stupid to understand even at this point what the show is all about. The latest episodes make it clear.
Masayoshi first established himself as a vigilante hero, but "vigilante" in a show doesn't necessarily include "realism". You all thought it was going to be a realistic take on super heroes, You had your expectations defied, so it was really your own fault to begin with.
Samurai Flamenco isn't about realism. It never was, not even in the beginning. It was always about HEROES. HEROES IN ALL ITS FORMS. People who can't stop fucking complaining about the show being a crazy ride mean they've only been focused on the realism for all this time.
THE SHOW NEVER SHIFTED.
It's simply about Masayoshi living the dream and after the revelations (both King Torture's ideals and the government control), he quickly realized that being a hero isn't as great as he though it would be.
I believe and assume that this latest arc will be about Masayoshi redefining what a hero is all about. Samurai Policeman now means he's probably throwing out of the frivolousness and perhaps too much individuality that went on in the past arcs, because that would probably clash with his new & revised definition of a hero.
You know I'm surprised it took them this long to get aliens and space. I predicted that for several weeks ago.
The themes have always been the same throughout the show.
However, the plot has been a roller coaster so it's easy to forget what the central ideas are.
Masayoshi got into a coma in episode 7.
He's having the weirdest dream journey ever, a dream journey to find himself and the true meaning of the hero shows that inspire him. The satirical lines are his personal critic and doubts about the hero shows.
The last episode will be like the last evangelion episode, and we will see accepting the outcome of this journey, then we get a totally new flamenco real life superhero in the last scene.
This show has more twists than my colon
Great, now I want to play a SF beat 'em up.
That's it. I give up. I will no longer make any attempt to predict which direction this show will go in. I'm done.
Why is the ED so fucking catchy? It leaves me with a smile, every time I hear it.
i never want to get off of masayoshi's crazy ride of justice
Time to start reposting.
>those paper dolls
Why is the ED so fucking creepy?
SF character action game made by Platinum
THEY'RE ON THE FUCKING MOON HOLY SHIT
I'm sure Ancient Aliens are gonna be the last thing.
I didn't realize just how much I missed it.
Has someone already done the standing here version of this ep?
There's a flamenco inside us all.
We've got what, five or six episodes left? At this rate there should be two or three more twists, not including the ending.
Mizuki x Hazama fucking when
For all the quality fluctuations throughout the series so far, Samurai Flamenco never ceased to provide tons of entertainment for me. The ride just keeps getting crazier and I had to laugh throughout the entire latest episode at the stuff they pulled.
The whole series is made of "ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? IS THIS NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE?"
DON'T FUCK WITH THE SENATOR
This reveal made me burst out in laughter. Holy shit this show is so great.
You're preaching to the wrong audience. Your target audience has abandoned the threads a long time ago and they only come to visit every now and then.
Don't you mean Flacthulumenco?
I didn't even think about it like that
I guess we're also getting good aliens who are fighting the bad aliens.
>No Flamenco in the name
There's something there, isn't there?
2nd ed when
We need a gif of the gattai
I almost thought Prime Minister was going to kill Gotou. I actually had to pause the show because I was starting to have a panic attack.
>This reveal made me burst out in laughter
Same. I think I was expecting Kaname, but nope.
Goto has the honor of the Samurai, but not the passion of the flamenco
Obviously Goto doesn't dance.
Nigga, they're kawaii as fuck. And their animation is nice too.
Yeah, I kind of messed up the order to repost them in, so it ended up being the earlier post.
Same here, shit was so fucking ridiculous I had to pause it for a bit.
I absolutely love that they saved the budget for fight scenes.
>On the moon
>Trees and flowers sparsely growing on the ground. Flowers not yet fully bloomed, but still growing against the apparent adversity.
>The Earth will be destroyed and what's left of mankind will migrate the moon and attempt to restart civilization. Gotou and Masayoshi stay on Earth and explode with it, leaving the Flamenco Girls to conduct mankind to safety.
More like an asteroid
Why is it always Platinum?
Then again, somehow they seem very appropriate in this case,
Don't be silly, asteroids clearly don't have trees.
>The last shot of Goto and Masayoshi
>standing side by side as magma begins to erupt everywhere
>Hazema says "Thanks for believing in me Goto-san"
>Goto keeps looking forward as he raises a hand and pats Hazema's head and says "Baka"
Anyone have the audio for then the Prime minister said that samflam had a 0.000001%? Made me smile like a bitch
Only if you're lacking in sheep.
The TWEEEEESTS keep happening!
That was such a great twist.
Has anyone made a stitch looking up Mizu's skirt yet?
Holy fuck this is so fun, it may actually be my anime of the year. It's been a while since I haven't had so much fun watching anime.
Oh no! Thumbtacks, my mortal enemy, we meet again!
God damnit, didn't notice it.
He actually says he's from planet Flamenco.
I laughed so much at this scene.
True Samurai Flamenco reporting in.
Fuck you, Marvel, for writing out Rich
Same here. This is my face ever since episode 7. Be honest. None of us were ready for the turns SF would take after the first few episodes.
>None of us were ready for the turns SF would take after the first few episodes.
Each time I think I'm ready for what they 'll throw next, turns out I wasn't.
This. I was expecting aliens and going into space for a long while, and the way the did it still threw me off.
Reminder that there will never be a third chapter of Densha De D.
You mean >>102023185?
Come on Gotoh, give in and you'll get the other two as a bonus, because that's how Mari does things.
There is only one girl for Gotoh.
So if the Prime Minister needed an enemy to unite people against the the alien threat, why didn't he just use the alien threat? If he just explained the situation he could have allied with the Flamengers and fought with a full power suit.
Yeah, but she's an alien.
I like you.
>tell people about aliens
>aliens notice, take him out
>tell superheroes about aliens even after imprisoning them
>one of them may be an alien spy, aliens know, take him out
Ginga Flamenco when
Look at that Mizuki stare, she likes what she sees and sees what she likes
REI TEN REIREIREIRERERE ICH PAACENTO
>Flamenco Girls REBORN
There seemed to be a lot of QUALITY whenever the Flamenco Girls showed up in this episode. More so than usual.
Gotou NTR's all the potential girls
Well, he was in full swag mode this episode.
Why aren't more /a/nons watching this madness? Do they hate fun?
Goto looks fucking evil in that shot.
They were at a stalemate. The aliens wouldn't move because of the risk that of the PM reaching 100% approval in a time of crisis, and the PM wouldn't reveal the aliens because if he did it and didn't manage to get to 100% approaval it was sure defeat, after all the aliens would have no reason to hold back anymore if they were exposed.
>Flamenco Girls Ribbon!
i wish sugita went joseph joestar and did his prime minister i bet you were gonna say ect ect
We /v/ now, so yes.
That looks like it could be a JoJo pose.
Goto's GF of course
Fun is only a buzzword
But KlK is fun.
this is a fucking rent-a-cop porno in the happening
But KLK has worse animation than this.
They had enough quality last episode. Now they get the QUALITY treatment.
>Not a single fuck given
>Petit cosplay takedown 5:Midnight Call
It's a tough competition, but you're probably right. It generally looks better though.
>To show you the true meaning of Justice
This makes a lot of sense. I assumed it was because he would come off as paranoid schizophrenic if he told the public every other world leader was an alien and he could only win if they supported him. Also, he may not want to reveal the mysterious origins of his power suit (his mentioning he was chosen by a "greater power" leads me to guess there's at least one more twist in store, and that Alien Flamenco are also just pawns to something greater that is intentionally turning the world into a super sentai).
Love always returns, bitches!
Since there's obviously something greater still at work - are there any deities that are associated with flamingos?
>Everyone is actually a universe and they're inside of a universe that's inside of a universe that's inside of a universe...
Remove the comma and we've got a deal.
The last big reveal will be just what the hell is up with "everything is Flamenco" and it will with 120% probability tie into Masayoshi's grandfather, his legacy and Masayoshi's parent's death.
Anyone else thought of independence day when the big ship appeared above the city?
Anyone else guessing Masayoshi's grandfather is an alien?
Masayoshi's parents are probably still alive
Goto's gf killed his parents and granfather
>The Old World flamingos were considered by the Ancient Egyptians to be the living representation of the god Ra
The whole Masayoshi family is aliens. But the people who killed his parents OVERSEAS were also aliens.
Dat battle cry. Why sides are crumbling.
Forgot my image.
Small space ships will come out of the big one and the flamen team will use jets to save the day.
Well fuck, Greater Power confirmed for ancient aliens.
I hope we maintain Samurai Flamenco, and do not return to Flamen Red now that the Flamengers are probably free.
Samurai Flamenco just looks so much better. In all of his incarnations. Including the first one with the ridiculous backwards-hat-under-headphones-and-a-bike-helmet.
This episode was fucking amazing. Ever since episode 15 this show has been so fucking good. That reveal at the end... Was not expecting Prime Minister to be a good guy. I totally expected him to be the pawn of more aliens or something. When does Hazama get a power-suit? Prime Minister got one, we can expect the powerup for our MC shortly I hope to god. Damn, I am so ready for Samurai Flamenco to bring Justice to the Universe.
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWAH!
Hopefully Harazuka is able to scavenge the technology from PM's suit for Flamenco.
I wouldn't mind the Flamengers coming back, so long as Hazama's uniform isn't reverted and Goto still gets screen time.
Also, the Flamenco Girls better get resolved. If Mari doesn't die I'm going to be at least a little bit disappointed with the last episode.
If Flamengers come back, Blue finally gets to be Flamen Red.
>Moe becomes Flamen Blue
>Mari becomes Flamen Yellow
>Souichi becomes Flamen Red
All the Flamenger guys are honestly pretty likeable. Flamen Pink, on the other hand, should just fucking die.
Now that aliens are invading, I guess we'll be seeing Goto with a rifle
>Souichi becomes Flamen Sapphire
Now THAT sounds like fun.
Current image on the samumenco homepage
This show has some really nice art, it's a shame it's so QUALITY
>Also obtained the cooperation of our "Flamenco Girl" was resurrected, Justice settled the fight against Prime Minister. However enemy government was going to defeat really, it was not our hero justice. The name of his enemy flamenco star people. They that have invaded the world in secret as defined in Japan the next target. to request that the casting skeptical gazes at the justice who confused, and go into negotiations alone "Samurai flamenco" flamenco star man.
>>Flamenco star man
After this episode we're getting very close to this image. Shit, when the episode started and Goto was all "Put on this mask, we don't have much time." they already had me at the edge of my seat just waiting for Goto to start shooting Flamencos.
>>>Flamenco star man
Yeah, the series' bizarre atmosphere would have been enhanced by good, consistent art.
That's the hat she wore when she apologized to Goto way back in the first episodes
that explains why he can fire lasers from his chest
I don't think him being an alien is the reason for that.
Unless nearly every other superhero was an alien too.
I wouldn't mind that.
Holy fuck, learn to draw a truck right.
you never know with this show
They can barely draw the characters right on what I'm assuming is a very tight and cramped production schedule, the truck being wrong is not surprising
Trace a fucking picture, damn.
Flanders (Flamenca) region reporting in
Not all trucks have that sleeping portion at the back of the cab
Goto's girlfriend will be the show's only true mystery. She will never be revealed in any way.
moot let me put my flag
I would know that being a driver, but that one obviously does. Or would if it wasn't horribly mangled. See what I mean now?
>Listen to ep 18 preview
What!? So no more captn Murrica?
Captain Justice was a lie.
This just made an inverse bell-curve in terms of enjoyability.
The first six episodes were really great, and the first half of the seventh, until the retarded gorilla scene. It just went downhill from here, just making a small spike at episode 10 or so where King Torture was fought, other than that it was pure shit all the way until the previous episode where it began to become enjoyable again, and this episode went back up in enjoyability to the first six, though in a different way (pretty much purely action-comedy). I can only hope they'll keep up with this, but I suspect that since a new enemy was introduced they'll go full-retard again and it will take another couple episodes to reach glory again.
The enemies so far have taken 3-4 episodes to beat. Wikipedia says it's 22 episodes, meaning we have 5 left. I wonder if they'll take more time for the last one, or fit in some final huge tweak in the last 1-2 episodes.
Either way it's been a rollercoaster. How are sales doing? Did Manglobe save themselves?
>ep 18 preview
>The first six episodes were really great
now i'm reminded of that Simpsons ep. where the presidential candidates are revealed to be aliens
True, also the lack of the KINAI KINAI KINAI punch barrage gif is absolutely innacceptable
>Oh no! Thumbtacks, my mortal enemy, we meet again!
what's worse? that or rakes?
I disagree, and I'm guessing most of the other people in this thread do too. The first six episodes were neither all that funny or surprising, and basically constituted a two dimensional farce that barely improves on Kick Ass. After episode 7, things became wildly unpredictable and the writing, while it showed absolutely no regard for consistency or foreshadowing, still produced pretty good dialogue. Also, because of that disregard, the show became unique and churned out consistently shocking twists. Anyways, this is how I think most people see it:
>absolutely no regard for consistency or foreshadowing
To be fair, most of the recent developments aside from Mister Justice were foreshadowed in one way or another.
KT = Prime Minister > Last half of Flamengers = Beginnings >>>>> First half of Flamengers
KT > Beginning = Prime minister > Flamengers
True enough. Still, SF has definitely disregarded writing propriety to pull off some jaw dropping twists (Guillotine Gorilla being the most notable).
I think the first episode of Flamengers is the funniest of the series, and the last episode (with Beyond Flamenco) is in the top three episodes. Overall, I thought it was actually very good, but more inconsistent than every other arc. Also, Goto vanished and the cast that replaced him was crushingly forgettable.
Alright, someone add aliens guy to the WEG.
I like the arcs in order of how much actual heroism takes place.
Beginning > PM > KT >>> Flamengers
With all but the latter being enjoyable.
Anon, just let it go.
How can one show be Metal Gear Rising and ALIUMS in one episode? How is this possible? Why is manglobe saving anime so hard for nothing it return?
>Durante los años 2013 y 2014
>2013 and 2014
Are you kidding? The last episode of Flamengers (where all the sentai actors teemed up to fight evil) was the clearest homage in the entire series, and also one of the most shamelessly, unironically "heroic" moments. The first arc, while it had some nice scenes (the umbrella thief and Goto's hentai speech) was still ultimately a parody mocking an ineffectual manchild. Anyways, SF amounted to something much bigger and more unique than what it promised initially, and anyone who whines about the "good old days" before guillorilla is probably a very superficial viewer.
Why would Prime Minister act all evil to Samumenco and Goto, and not just explain his fucking plan to deal with the aliens?
>NiseKoi reaction face
Am I surprised?
Looks like people disagree with that ranking, there's many different tastes after all.
At least most people seem to agree that the first half of Flamengers was utter shit though, and the latter half not particularly great either.
I think it might be the case that people forgot about the first half of KT though, it was just as retarded as the first half of Flamengers. Have you forgotten the fat rhino, wooden horse guy, and all that shit? Or did you think it was good because it was fucking ridiculous? Or did you like the Gorilla and it justified the next couple bad episodes?
Because Flamenco, ain't gonna explain shit.
Bunch of surrealistic gags.
Go away Frodo.
Well what if one of the heroes was an alien all along?
Have we discussed the minor changes to the opening yet?
The last episode's opening didn't have the characters' names displayed in the background, right? The moment where Masayoshi and Goto are glancing upwards seemed to have a few more frames of animation, too.
Still doesn't top the first opening, but it was nice to see some improvements being made.
The first half of KT was satirizing the monster of the week formula (remember when everyone got bored with it and it ended up with a ten second segment on the evening news?). I personally thought episode 11 was the funniest in all of Samumenco, but I might be in the minority there.
From original OP
>YFW the greater power is Goto's girlfriend with her fucked up imagination.
Between this and KlK I just feel like I'm not going to be able to take both these wild rides at the same time.
I guess you could say that. I found it stupid and boring anyway.
Oh shit I just remembered the elbow rocket.
That was a good scene, but it was undermined by the fact that they were being manipulated into acting their part. From Beyond being a sham was the final blow to the concept of the TV hero. The only positive that came of the whole thing was Harakiri Sunshine inspiring Goto to trust in Masayoshi and the others. The first arc on the other hand was pretty solidly about that same kind of trust, with Samurai Flamenco inspiring the populace to do good in their everyday lives and making a change in the lives of the people, not just dealing with monsters that exist only as a foil for the purpose of entertainment.
Haven't watched latest episode, but I am so glad they went the direction they did with this show
It is fucking great now
KlK was only really wild for the last 2-3 or so episodes, and it was pretty consistent before.
Samumenco just went full-on rollercoaster after EP7.
>1st of August
>SamFlam first aired in September or October
I think "The hero is in each and everyone of us" is going to be ultimately the message of the show. They touched that point of view a few times already. Damn, just last episode Samurai Flamenco was saved by a hobo who was inspired by seeing him trying to "inspire the populace to do good in their everyday lives" as you said.
KlK is really predictable though. Nothing unexpected about it, just over the top.
Fair. I found the first six episodes pretty boring. This is taste, and I can accuse you of being worse than I am, but we can't have a meaningful discussion on this basis alone.
Good points. I agree that encouraging random acts of kindness is more necessary and practical than encouraging people to fight against monsters for the sake of survival, but the problem is that Masayoshi becomes a joke as soon as he puts on a costume and starts ranting about justice to middle schoolers. Only a couple of scenes in the first arc seemed sincerely heroic, while most were clearly parodies.
At least Moe looks moe even when she's being QUALITY.
Let's not talk about KLK.
How about Mari dies?
KT outfit is so fucking sexy.
Please, someone put a "FLAMEN BRO FIST" in the end.
KLK is totally predictable in its actually events though.
Nothing has been as crazy as SamFlam.
Wise homeless man always makes a great scene.
I think this guy ties with that guy from episode 7 whose name I can't remember (help me), they both made the series take a gorillion deegree turn
I'm expecting we will be Gatchaman in the next week
I already dropped KLK, I'll pick it up later but I just can't handle the crazy of this and KLK at the same time. It feels like an overload.
I wasn't saying one was crazier than the other. I'm just saying both are getting really fucking crazy.
We Justice League soon?
IT REALLY HAPPENED
Anyone else found the PM an interesting character? While he wanted to help people, his suit (which forced him into a popularity contest) made him abandon self-effacement and basically act heroic to whore for attention. Whatever "greater power" gave him the suit more or less forced him to be a villain, exactly because it pressured him to appear as heroic as possible.
I want to marathon this, is it too late? I know it's nearing the ending arc.
>wanting to cause moe suffering
you are the worst
Its never too late to get on the ride, but it doesn't stop once you're on it.
Never. Go for it and don't drop it until at least the end of episode 7.
Keep in mind, it's a hit-and-miss dark horse of a series, but the hits make it worth it.
Do it faggot, you'll have to take a break to bitch about everyone's favorite gorilla anyway
This show is based.
It's pretty much an exaggeration of real-life politics, where the ends justify the means and simple narratives are necessary over complex ones, even if they simple one isn't true.
GET ON HAZAMA MOSAYOSHI'S WILD RIDE RIGHT NOW, ANON
We're getting a second season, right?
A beautiful lie.
With those sales?
The difference between this and actual politics is that the prime minister is ultimately trying to save the word. While every politician is basically farming popularity, real politicians generally do that for family reputation, protected incumbency, and a place in history, not for the greater good of mankind (generally speaking).
It's always been 24 episodes, son. And there's no way S2 would ever happen anyways. Manglobe would crash and burn even harder.
I would buy ten thousand copies of this.
The chances are astronomically low. But that doesn't mean you should give up, hide, run away, or accept the evil known as no S2.
This is implying the series will have an ending that leaves a possibility of S2
Holy shit this episode. Absolutely fucking incredible. 10/10 AOTYAY.
ITT: SamFlams wild ride never ends
seriously they should change masayoshi's name to mr bones at this point.
So, I'm about to pick this show up. what do I expect?
I love Toku a lot.
Yes, with Masayoshi as the new PM.
True. But should an idealistic politician exist in real life, they'd be faced with the same issue; either tell the truth from the get-go and be ineffectual, or lie to gain power that you can then use to enact the changes you want to make.
A fucking rollercoaster ride of insanity and axe chimps.
from umbrella theft to this. never would've imagined this show would be such a wild ride.
I'd actually expect a movie, but another full season? No.
>Next Samurai Flamenco is based on Kamen Rider
This I agree with. Stay based, anon.
Can someone shop Asura's face on to this?
Why would he be PM when he becomes God?
A love letter to toku with twists, lesbians and beautiful lies
So, did they spend all of their budget on the music, sugita, and the final episodes?
This show is the shit.
Leave this fucking thread.
See you in two weeks.
Although I don't know about marathoning, this show is what kept me alive since it started to air. I've never looked forward to the next episode of a show in my life as much as I do with Samumenco.
Nah, I'd assume that they'll be able to round everything up in 5 more episodes.
>watching 1st episode
Why didn't I pick this up sooner? Why did I have doubts?
I'm so fucking happy that I dropped this garbage and that there's only a few fucking retards still watching this garbage.
Because /a/ snubbed it and Japan didn't put enough marketing hype into it.
I feel as cheated as you do, watching through it.
I picked up this show based on the promo art.
I was kinda disappointed with the first couple of episodes, but I still liked.
I giggled like a little girl during episode 7.
My sides, my sides. My fucking sides.
Buckle up, friend.
This is fucking sad as fucking shit. Can't wait until this tripefest gets forgotten a week after it finishes.
Post here once you hit episode 7.
>Can't wait until this tripefest gets forgotten a week after it finishes.
It's tripe, but it's really REALLY fucking good at being tripe.
It's like the ubertripe.
I was so happy he came back.
That twist. ;_;
u seem lik a nice gi, wanna cher skype?
You know, tripe is actually quite delicious. If only more people would give it a chance.
Justice is never forgotten.
>STOP LIKING WHAT I DON'T LIKE
ur tast is shit and ur waifu a shit
Please ignore the shitposter, he's just sad that guillotine gorilla saved Kick Ass.
Please do so.
Imagine if they had a special episode where the Kamen Riders show up.
How would /a/ react?
Harakiri Sunrise > Kamen Riders
/a/ wouldn't care.
/a/ wouldn't give a fuck.
/m/ would explode and start discussing why kamen rider whatever appeared and not kamen rider super whatever.
You mean tokufags. /m/ doesn't give a shit about this garbage
Thank you for stopping your shitposting.
>/m/ doesn't give a shit about this garbage
I frequent /m/ since discovering it in 2010, you're full of shit.
Okay so I started marathoning this yesterday and just finished episode seven, and all I have to say is...what? FUCKING WHAT?!!?
WHERE THE FUCK DID THE GORILLA THING COME FROM? DOES THIS GET EXPLAINED? IS THE SHOW GOING TO GO FULL FUCKING TTGL FROM HERE ON OUT??
I was expecting Kick Ass but for power rangers instead of comic heroes, what the actual shit is going on here.
Your gif said you give up. Why are you still baiting?
Gif of Double Samurai Kick where?
>Goto checks his cellphon one last time
>I'm going to see you now
errm, are you aware that toku belongs in /m/?
In every thread, there must be at least one >>102040119
It's like Gurren Lagann from here, man. An infinite spiral of increasingly implausible happenings.
>he's just sad that guillotine gorilla saved Kick Ass.
>show is a critical and commercial flop
>the only people still holding on to the notion that this is an unappreciated gem are retards in vain of people who believe Donnie Darko is a masterpiece.
If only this show would kill Manglobe already I'll be so happy.
I just realized Mari became Flamenco grl because of FLAMENCO, she had stated in ep 4 she didn't want to copy Masayoshi
>It's all making sense now.jpg
Sure is nice being delusional
Are you actively trying to be stupid?
I thought you said you had given up? Why are you still here? Why don't you go away with your terrible posts?
I'll bite because you accused me of liking Donnie Darco. Samurai Flamenco is some of the most unpretentious stuff I've ever watched. People enjoy it because it is fun and unpredictable, not because they are vapid hipsters. Now fuck off.
I bet you like KlK right? With all your overflowing stupidity it is really easy to notice.
>Only one person hates SamFlam
How deluded are you?
>People enjoy it because it is fun and unpredictable
So they're the same as people who enjoy Adam Sandler movies.
>So they're the same as people who enjoy Adam Sandler movies.
But Adam Sandler isn't fun.
Just because there are people who enjoy the show on one level doesn't mean that's the only way to enjoy it. Throughout all the ridiculous twists there's been some consistent themes that continue to be developed, and I wouldn't call it well-executed, but I'd definitely call it interesting.
>I bet you like KlK right?
There's nothing wrong with that.
>Sure is nice being delusional
Okay, prove me otherwise. there was an entire sticky of whether or not Toku belongs in /m/ and we argued about in a civil manner.
If anything, while it was agreed that it should stay on it, it would have been easier to change "Mecha" into "Mecha & Toku".
Keep antagonizing shit.
Before >>102039338 the thread was clean. After that a three fourths are either shitposts are replies to shitposts. If you aren't samefag then you're a tool who bandwagons onto shitty trolls.
I never said only one person hates SamFlam. I'm saying there's only one person in this thread shitposting about how bad the show is. You're not actually bringing up any valid criticisms or anything. You're just saying "OTHERS SAY IT SUCKS" and that the fanbase must all be 13 year olds that like shitty movies. I just want you to leave and stop shitposting because it is only you in this thread.
Sure do! And you can't mock me for it since SamFlam is terrible. Next time pick a fight with a show that isn't superior in every fucking way to the garbage you're defending like Maken-Kai 2.
Yeah nothing wrong with liking KlK. But KlK is stupid. Even more so than samflam.
I wasn't arguing that toku doesn't belong in /m/ I'm stating that not all people on /m/ endorses toku nor do tokufags make up the majority.
Neither is SamFlam after episode 6
Stop taking the obvious as fuck b8 and devolving into arguments about which show is better. Jesus Christ just stop replying to him and being retarded.
Next time pick a show with actual animation in it and the plot actually progresses before defending a shit show.
>the wild ride
You're not tricking anybody.
>Anything in KLK
>More stupid than Gulotine Gorilla, Beyond the Beyond the Beyond, Justice, nanomachines, etc.
>So they're the same as people who enjoy Adam Sandler movies.
No, they're the same as people who like Metal Gear Solid.
>love Samurai Flamenco
>retards at each other's throats about which is better now
Why can't we have both? You both have terrible, terrible taste.
Okay, and that's fine. I'm not bothering them and we keep to our own generals.
Just like how Gundamfags do with their threads, or Macrossfags.
It's like taking away the "manga" part for an Anime/Manga thread or the "Cartoon" part for "Comics/Cartoons".
It goes hand-in-hand in a way.
It's just one guy trying to shove his opinion of how terrible the show is into everyone's throat.
Honestly, I don't get the idea, if I personally don't like a show, I ignore threads related to it unless they're "what do you think about X/why is X so shitty" threads and there's that.
>citing any show has shit animation
> Nudist beach?
Nice tmblr gif. Now stop shitposting.
None of that is as stupid as the things I listed.
>Only 1 episode
Nice try. At least Samflam have animation not like KlK.
You can't be afraid to break a few eggs
>Double Flamenco Kick
this ride, I never want to get off
Just because you like doesn't mean its not stupid.
who is that guy?
Fuck off Mari.
So we're in agreement that she's best girl, right?
I want to lick Mizuki all over.
Not ringing a bell.
If he wrote arguments for why SamFlam is bad, then it's excusable. The problem is, he's just labeling it shit without giving any reason why. This thread is mostly "wild ride" shitposting, but there are some intelligent posts, and he didn't make any of them.
An alien in disguise.
Flamenco girls look so much better with ribbons.
The hair was moving, the stitcher was shit tier and didn't know how to fix it.
Further cements that blue eyes the GOAT eye colour and mizuki is undisputed best grill of the series
Your face when he took off the jacket and tie.
I was expecting Nanomachines, but I got that awesome Buddha suit.
I seriously, SERIOUSLY thought he was gonna go full Armstrong
K, done trying to think this show through anymore. I'm just going to go ahead and enjoy the ride till the end. Who's with me?
No. Anything but that. I don't want to cry.
>Did you think me just an ordinary prime minister
Good job, crunchyroll.
Please. Just this time. I have no other reactions in this pc.
I like it. It's a small reminder of my own shock.
Thats not incorrect
It's still a correct sentence when followed by another.
Did you think me just an ordinary Prime Minister? For I am ......
Don't care, got biker shorts Mizuki I am not stitcher
BTW what's flamenco?
Kill La Kill is so much better, right?
This thread was going so well. I left for just one hour. How the hell did this happen?
>think me just
I can not think of any context where that is correct.
>Do you think I'm just an ordinary prime minister?
>Do you think of me as just an ordinary prime minister?
would be correct.
You've never heard sentences worded literally exactly like that before? Do you even read?
>How the hell did this happen?
Masayoshi should've took Alien Flamenco's offer.
Now it's too late.
>You've never heard sentences worded literally exactly like that before?
It makes him sound like an ape.
I refuse to believe this is proper English, and if it was, who the fuck would talk like that?
This does it. Thursday is now the best day of the week. Why didn't I get caught up sooner?
A shitposter showed up and- armed with nothing other than calling SamFlam shit and its fans retards- ruined the thread because morons replied to him.
I was expecting him to be an alien. I wasn't expecting Iron Man.
You're thinking of the "me just a producer" as a phrase in itself which makes it sound like comical Native American talk, but the correct way to look at it is reading the "me" as the direct object of think. It's just a matter of knowing how to read/hear it right and it sounds perfectly fine.
>What do you take me for?
>Most of you know me as...
"me" is perfectly fucking acceptable to use as a direct object you pretentious fuck.
You think me a mere ape, anon? I shall show you the might of a true English education and the power of writing! Fear the might of Pretenious Man!
You made a typo Mister Pretentious guardian of correct English.
My disguise has been compromised!
>not knowing the definition of pretenious
I bet you'll even look for it's definition on the surface web. Stay pleb.
Fuck yeah with Sam Flam, KlK and now strange plus and wonder momo Thursday is terrific.
I remember I started watching it 1 or 2 days after ep 7 got out, I wanted to see it because of the promo pic though I knew it was gonna be Don Quijote (before it turned into Kickass). Me just an admireer of trainwrecks got quite a surprise because I had not heard about the simian surprise at the end of the episode, from that day on, I couldn't keep guessing what would happen on the next thursday, weeks have become long.
I'm betting on an evanjellyon 'congratulations' end.
I think that one WEG sums up how everyone is watching it. We're all just enjoying the ride.
ok, what's next? i mean, beyond aliens?
I was watching from the beginning and liking it but it felt like a seasonal show that would not leave a lasting impression. But when that rehsus revelation happened I knew this was a show I would never forget.
Masayoshi unlocks his spiral power that is based on justice.
Until it becomes Akiba rangers.
The final boss will be Masayoshi from the future, who has lost the meaning of justice and turned into a dictator like figure to protect the world from the future he witnessed at the hands of the aliens. It's revealed during the final episode's credits that Goto's gf was pulling the strings of both the Flamenco Aliens and future Masayoshi
>implying it won't be his grandfather who took over literally everything and lost his way.
Flamenco God when?
Holy shit with way this is going this is totally possible.
>This whole episode
inb4 samumenco has to kill his dad
>I'm Flamenco God, you can't fight me
>I'll be as well fight you as a God
yfw Kyuubi offers Masayoshi a contract
This is exactly what i was thinking while watching.
What if Masayoshi is alien Flamenco Superman, put on Earth to protect it?
I could see his parents being aliens.
we superman nao
can someone explain to me why goto called the police in the first place?
He didn't call the police, retard.
he called the scientist, he knew the police were coming.
He called the scientist guy to come pick them up.
The police were already tracking Hazama. Gotou didn't call the police.
HOW THE FUCK GODDAMN DO THEY KEEP DOING THIS TO ME
THERE'S A TWIST
I FINALLY THINK THEY CAN'T GO ANY FURTHER
THERE'S NOTHING THAT CAN SURPRISE ME NOW
They staked out his place silly.
THE RIDE NEVER ENDS
Then the ED kicks in making that confused and shocked feeling even worse because you realize you have to wait another week for closure or more twist.
This. I remember that day, the airing, the hour, how loud i yelled, and the shitstorm in /a/.
Also, a before/after in every SamFlam threads.
Then you come to /a/ and find out the Olympics delays the next episode by another week.
Actually 2 weeks. Flamenco won't air next week.
Have the threads gotten better or worse since then?
Fuck, that sucks
>Japansese secret service
>not one of them has a gun
Masayoshi would be shot dead in 1 second in the USA
>Masayoshi losing his sense of justice
Ain't happening. That's the one pillar that will never tumble.
worse, much much worse.
Threads were good when it had like 40 fans on /a/.
After Gorilla Munch, IRC started shitposting about Rape and Purity.
he didn't want to kill him like that anyway.
He needed his approval rating to up.
Not to mention he was fucking padded.
A-At least we are going to get a completely different fully animated OP, right?
They got worse for a while, but they've pretty much recovered. Save for the occasional disturber of peace the threads have been flowing pretty smoothly recently.
>implying they'll finish the OP before the final episode
Agreed. Now a third of the comments in these threads involve "wild ride" or "train wreck". Small, circle jerk fandoms are the best.
>Small, circle jerk fandoms are the best
>pad can stop bullets
THE MOON IS FLAMENCO
I want to fuck kotone
But they are. Un-Go had the best threads I've ever seen, and I doubt more than 40 people on /a/ were keeping up with it.
You said that last time.
Holy shit man, you think a guy with body restraining ink and a giant fucking paint brush doesn't have bullet proof armor?
That's as far as your suspension of disbelief goes? Over something that ACTUALLY exists?
Hey guys... if everyone really is flamenco... doesn't that make Goto's girlfriend Flamenco too?
This seems exploitable.
Also STANDING HERE/10
You just know the final episode is going to have ten genre shifts. Maybe we'll even see a shift into high school romance, with Ishihara with toast in her mouth as she runs into SamFlam around the corner.
I like how obvious background is cheap cgi with everything else drawn on.
It's already begun, anon.
I defended this show for 16 episodes but this is enough
This show is dog shit
I don't get it.
This episode was better than the last
What changed your mind?
Not enough flamenco girl screentime.
You're right, Flamenco Ruby needs more screentime
This fucking show.
This fucking show.
What's the next Flamenco tweest?
Ruby best Flamenco girl. Diamond and Sapphire should just get a room and leave all the real work to the real best girl besides based manager of course.
Is this true?
The last episode Samurai Flamenco transcends genres, stringing together 2d and 3d clips randomly while the only audio is a baby, whimpering at first, then crying more and more audibly until it releases a blood curdling scream. Suddenly, a quickly changing series of images of birth and death fade to white, and Goto and Masayoshi are shown, fully naked, umbilically connected to one another in a glass womb orbiting the earth against a rising sun. Goto leans forward and whispers in Masayoshi's ear, "Welcome home". A tiny crack on the glass appears, and the series ends.
Time travel arc When?
Shes been off screen for a while now.. Isnt she somewhere safe now? She got captured in a helicopter in the first OP and in the second she is holding that little axe..
I DONT LIKE WHERE THIS IS GOING
their 11's so they probably want it to happen
Just what goes through these writers' heads?
Once they're on the mothership and defeat the head Alien Flamenco.
They go back in time, and Hazama meets his grandpa, who is actually him, because he impregnates a woman who looks a lot like manager. Then he writes about Samurai Flamenco and hides it away for his grandson, himself in the future.
Why does every good show so far make the twist aliens? what the fuck did aliens ever do to anime?
There are people who are still too stupid to pick up on the whole "Learning what it means to be hero" thing even after he talked about learning what being a hero really meant and how it was different than his expectations?
Oh wait, those are just shitposters who don't know anything about a show but complain without watching it anyways. You know, the same kind of shitposters every show has.
Those paper puppets are fucking creepy.
Nice try Mr Alien, you won't fool me. Now fuck off this planet
>whispering "welcome home"
I've never seen anyone dismiss Samurai Flamenco on any basis other than a lack of foreshadowing and genre betrayal. Their points are so blatantly obvious I wonder why they even bother.
fuck you man whats so wrong about trying to assimilate the human race to our cause
It will never be as good as Lamposheydo
I believe the animation is better and the music is up to par with it, but you are entitled to your opinion.
I knew all aliens were hostile creatures
I'l be phoning Mr Justice personally to deal with you
His punch gives me hope they have some budget left to give us an awesome last fight scene.
I want my Erupting Flamen Finger Sekiha Rabu Rabu Tenkyoken with Ishihara.
But isn't Mr Justice Alien Flamenco
That was a fake justice. Notice his cheesy excuse "Tranquilizer only works for 2 seconds on me" and "I can't help directly you because reasons"
I like it.
This man is your friend
He fights for JUSTICE
Is this just a Haruhi where samemenco is god and is changing all this to what he really wants?
>Masayoshi didn't steal the bread
He's too pure to be led astray.
no. it's aliens.
>I want to lick Mizuki all over.
Finally one thing we can agree on.
Best suit so far.
So he got a gold cloth?
This show deserves some kind of award. I'm not exactly sure what that award would be, but it definitely deserves it.
>The 13th Zodiac
It's called "Most original anime of the year" with an honorable mention on the AOTY 2013 chart.
You might be on to something.
My nigga. Un-Go threads are comfy as fuck.
