This are the saviors of anime.

Kill la kill being the White Knight that its saving the anime, while Samurai Flamenco is the Dark Knight (and all its implications that the title has).

Discuss.
>>
Except that Samurai Flamenco is forever stained with bad.

Almost nothing can atone for the From Beyond arc. At least King Torture was kinda good.

Being Dark Knight means to be hated for many, and loved for the ones who actually gets you.

what is so good about samurai flamenco?
Serious question

Your face when watching both episodes.

Gentlemen, this is a fine thread.

I don't see how anybody could possibly have watched this week's episode and care about anything that came before it. It's like they made the show suck for a little bit on purpose.
>>
>>102045582
its insane, and its a great series that actually gets better once you get around the crap that is the beyond arc.
everything else is gold.
>>
>>102045260
In that case KlK is also stained with those 10 or so episodes where they introduce like 2 characters and nothing really happens.
>>
I just marathoned SamFlam for the entire day. I like how every twist is pure shit-storm inducing.

>what is so good about samurai flamenco?
It is pants on head crazy. Just try to get through the From Beyond Arc. That's the bad part.

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN TRIGGER SAVED ANIME

not even the whole From Beyond is bad. Only 11-13 and then it gets good again.

THIS
.
Kill la Kill is the most popular, and besides its flaws and resentments that people can have against the majority of its fanbase, its pretty solid, and is very fucking good and entertaining.

Samurai Flamenco in the other hand, don't have even the half popularity than KLK has, and the budget is low, making QUALITY issues weekly.
But the themes, execution, creativity has delivered almost weekly in a fucking glorious ways.

I disliked the MM35 episode, but that's it.

>>102046374
SF is pretty underrated, but that's because no one knows what it's about.

It's gonna be a sleeper show like Kaiba.

>>102045662
Sadly, nobody will discuss anything here.
I completly agree with OP's statement.

Samurai Flamenco is a money losing flop that swings between being a good time and being painful to watch. It's a parody of toku shows aimed at a general audience who isn't watching.

KLK is fanservice random over the top humour show like FLCL and Panty & Stocking. It's doing better than SamFlam, but worse than projected.

Honestly I dropped KLK five episodes in so I can't speak past that, but they both seem like pretty shitty shows. Samurai Flamenco can't keep it together long enough to animate one whole episode properly, can't keep a tone, and can't seem to construct a coherent storyline. It does have a couple interesting characters and a catchy OP, but not really anything else going for it. Also, good god this bitch is intolerable. KLK on the other hand seems focused on being over-the-top just for the sake of it rather than building up anything. It seems like the anime equivalent of things like Jackass where the entertainment is built solely around 'wow it's so x-treem!' Extremely skimpy outfits, exaggerated character designs, highly stylised animations. That'd be cool if it went hand in hand with an interesting story and cast like TTGL but absolutely nothing happened as far as I got. I'd love to be wrong about that, but I don't think either is saving anything and are crap examples of potential future growth in the industry.

>Dropping either of the animes being discussed
Your opinion is invalid right there.

I just realised both Armstrong esque figures in SF and KlK got their arses kicked today.

>can't keep a tone, and can't seem to construct a coherent storyline.

Are you fucking serious? Everything has been leading into another on Sam Flam. Just because the events are still a mystery doesn't mean the story is coherent.

We know aliens are fucking with shit, and there are multiple Flamencos, next episode we're gonna find out why.

I honestly think SF is one of those stories you can't critique until it's over, wait and see if the plot wraps up.

That said, the animation is shit, and the From Beyond Arc drags TREMENDOUSLY, but it's still an enjoyable show.

I'm going to assume spellcheck ate your 'incoherent' and not that you have the strangest way of vigorously agreeing with me.

I didn't say I don't love it, but it's not saving jack shit and it's not a very good show. I know the story is building towards something and that the audience is intentionally being kept in the dark before some big reveals. But they way they are going about it is incredibly sloppy, it stutters and then lunges ahead, the pacing is exceptionally awkward. I don't think any kind of spectacular finale will rectify the troubles the shows has gone through.

>>102047780
Which is why I stated straight out I've only seen five episodes.

>>102047643
Which anime of this season is better in everything that the ones posted in OP.
