So what the fuck is Flamenco anyway?
Everyone, and everything
A beautiful lie.
>Everyone, and everything is Flamenco
I haven't picked up Samumenco since the From Beyond/evil twin brother shit, so Samurai Flamenco is an anonymous we r leejun now?
He's saying it in a "what the fuck, why is everything Flamenco" kind of way.
It's "everything is Titans" actually put into practice.
A way of life.
...I still don't get it.
Ep. 16 and 17 were fucking awesome. Keep watching it I didn't like 15 and the things before that that much either.
Everything is aliens.
All the the bad things that happen?
MC is saying it. And he is rather asking than giving an answer or something, see >>102154603
We've gone through a lot of Toku cliches and finally hit aliens but there are still a few to go.
Spirits/Underworld for one.
Oh, I get it now.
Think about it.
In Episode 1, MC is nervous to be on stage with MMM. So he sings Axe Guy's theme song to calm himself.
In Episode 7, he finds out his parents didn't die in an accident. They were murdered by an American. Immidietly after that scene, he goes with the Police on a Public Relations Mission to raid a drug ring. In that moment, a giant cyborg gorilla appears.
Every 3 - 4 episodes, we are introduced to a Kamen Rider arc, a Power Ranger Arc, a Super Hero Arc and the next arc will be aliens.
Every thing that's happened is a way for MC to calm himself from the realization that his parents were murdered. It's not a dream. It's the MC having a breakdown.
DON'T FUCK WITH THIS PRIME MINISTER!
Well... maybe you should pick it back up. I mean it's impossible not to enjoy the show unless you had stupid expectations.
That aside, how to explain it... everything turns out to be Flamenco. But apparently Flamenco is not a dance and we don't know what it actually is yet.
Notice how Goto didn't say that he's Flamenco in a world where even mouses are Flamenco.
Goto confirmed for final boss.
Flamenco is the subconscious, which has seeped into reality, replacing the regular world with a world of Flamenco. The show started in the real world, but the will of Flamenco changed it into a world of superheroes and cliches.
Alternatively, if we were to assume every thing that's happened in SF is real, then it's likely MC's grandfather took an aspect of this "flamenco" and turned it into a superhero.
Flemenco seems to be known by other characters such as Axe Guy who claims he's Flemenco #1. And then the Flemenco Girl, and then th
What's going on? Respo
It might be that grandpa set up all of these villains for Masayoshi to fight.
After all, what is a hero without a villain?
Kick Ass - Kamen Rider - Sentai - Metal Gear Rising Revengeance - ?
We'll have Ultraman next
I think it's his grandfather story. The tale of Flamenco!
So it's all a big scheme he made to make his dream hero come true.
ALL OF MY MONEY AND ALL OF MY BONERS.
Some people think it's just a dream (as hinted by the show's first opening).
Some people think it's MC having a breakdown because of the way the gorilla scene happens right after he finds out his parents were killed.
Some people think his grandfather and a bunch of other characters in the show is aware of what "Flemenco" is and used it for their own identity (Beyond Flemenco, Flemenco Rangers, Flemenco Girl... etc).
Some people think it doesn't matter the show is a roller coaster enjoy the ride bitches.
MY BODY IS READY.
>Flamenco (Spanish pronunciation: [flaˈmeŋko]) is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps). First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre grew out of Andalusian and Romani music and dance styles. Flamenco is often associated with the Romani people of Spain (Gitanos) and a number of famous flamenco artists are of this ethnicity. Flamenco was first recorded in the late 18th century but the genre underwent a dramatic development in the late 19th century.
>In recent years flamenco has become popular all over the world and is taught in many countries: in Japan there are more academies than there are in Spain. On November 16, 2010 UNESCO declared flamenco one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
Yes this line will probably become really relevent in the next episodes.
The fabricated tale of the greatest hero of all time! For everyone entertainment!
So expect an universe wide conspiracy.
fuck you tacos
despite the many shit episodes and promising genre deconstruction premise suddenly going full retard the last episode almost made up for it. it was fucking excellent.
ORE WA ULTIMENCO!
Why are you blaming the Mexicans? Blame the Spaniards.
Yea I think it's a conspiracy made by his grandpa too.
well i would call the introduction of guillotine gorilla and the whole king torture thing pretty sudden and jarring after where the series seemed to be going
the Samurai are a completely different matter all together. Soon we'll see Samurai girls, Samurai Justice, and Samurai Axe who will fight off the invading Flamencos.
My point is that it didn't SUDDENLY get this way 'last episode', it went off the deep end an entire cour ago.
>Gekijouban Samurai Flamenco: SAMURAI VS FLAMENCO VS SAMURAI FLAMENCO
>despite the many shit episodes and promising genre deconstruction premise suddenly going full retard, the last episode almost made up for it
looking back i should have added a comma to make what i was saying more apparent
I thought last episode was a great mix of old and new flamenco.
A best girl gets her love interest NTR'd by worst girl every time you forget punctuation and capitalization, Anon.
prove me wrong.
>prove me wrong
They come from different countries. That was easy.
Flamencos are a race of aliens seeking to expand their galactic empire. Masayoshi somehow tapped into the power of the Flamencos, and harnessed it to defend Earth from the various attempts by the Flamencos to break down human society.
The reappearance of the old weapons guy was everything I needed. Why can't I remember his name, why does he have so little screen time?
>the real face behind the Flamencos
>ultimate nation defence
USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA
So considering that was the secret code, OP 1 suit next episode right?
True American hero.
Your true American hero is an alien.
Make of that what you will.
What a beautiful lie
Shame he was an alien. And an evil alien, not Superman.
Also, where the fuck will they go next? Maybe >>102154811 is right and we will see Samumenco punch God/Devil/Hades before this is done.
Flamenco is codeword for jew
but the jews fear the samurai
and that would make the MC a self-fearing Jew
>obama turned out to be a space lizard all along
/pol/ WAS RIGHT
self-hating jew is a time honored archetype
When will we find out?
The line in the OP is beautiful life, not lie
Alien Flamenco wasn't the real Mishta Justisu
BAD JUSTICE, anon
But Goto's girlfriend is Haruhi Suzumiya.
>Masayoshi has a mancrush on Goto
>From Beyond is a manifestation of Goto's unseen girlfriend in Masayoshi's mind
>no fanart of awesome Prime Minister yet
That's not right.
This bloody show.
Maybe it was just me but I enjoyed the animation for the prime minister battle, I wouldn't have expected this for this show. The whole fight was awesome.
All the budget went to that episode.
>PM used the people's faith to become stronger
>Deus used the people's faith to become stronger
Gohma Flamenco confirmed for next boss.
What is Flamenco? It's really obvious, but I guess I'll tell you anyway. Flamenco is
Just a sec, there's another thread I need to post in, I'll be right back.
Flamenco is your soul, your power, your dreams!
FLAMENCO IS EVERYTHING ANON EVERY FUCKING THING!
We all there's one more twist like Chakravatrin.
I can't wait for the Flamenco Reactor and Masayoshi the Destructor.
Well they're are going to be in space next.
A piece of shit.
>no hentai of Samurai Flemanco Girls
There's a lack of fan art for this show. Is it not popular in Japan?
>>no hentai of Samurai Flemanco Girls
Do you mean ecchi? 'Cause there's hentai:
>Samurai Flemanco Girls
It's just Flamenco Girls, get your names straight. And actually it's Flamenco Girls Reborn now.
The theory that Samurai Flamenco went into a coma due to a bomb during the Drug bust is getting more and more plausible...
End of alien flamenco arc
Masayoshi is in the graveyard by a memorial to his parents saying how much his learned, how grateful he is for his friends and how he will always fight for justice as long as he lives
In comes out a older looking man with an eye patch
Flamenco movie is announced then manglobe announces weeks later that they are disbanding
I still can't shake that unsettling feeling from waaaay back in episode one.
Then Akira Ishida Flamenco pointing out the flaws in the world and talking about everyone being crazy didn't help either.
The FUCK, Goto?
So we know he's on the side of justice, and not a crazy alien villain conspiracy like nearly everything else with Flamenco attached to their name.
What is your favorite attack in the anime so far?
everything is Flamenco, except Goto
You've just posted it
Anyone have the most recent weg for this show?
>This entire fucking episode
Not even episodes 7 and 10 combined could top it. AOTY easily.
A spanish kind of music, made by gypsies, why?
>no one dances
so what other plot twists can we see in the upcoming episodes? we could still have
time travel flamenco
flamenco in space
tengen toppa gurren flamenco
project of human instrumenco(it all returns to flamenco)
it was all a dream flamenco
though "it was all a dream" is hands down, the worst type of twist that any sort of self-respecting writer can turn to, so i doubt they're going to go that direction.
>it was all a dream
>the reality is even crazier
Agreed, the "it was all a dream" endings all feel anticlimactic or deus ex machina-y.
>tengen toppa guramenco
Mark my words. This JUSTICE will open a hole in the universe! And that hole will be a path for those behind us! The dreams of those who have fallen... The hopes of those who will follow! Those two sets of dreams weave together into a dance, stepping a path towards tomorrow! And that's Samurai. That's Flamenco! My JUSTICE is the JUSTICE... THAT CREATES THE HEAVENS!!!
Personally, I have to say that somebody like samurai flamenco's grandpa is the one who did everything, from giving flamenco his love of superheroes to making a giant group of robots. (That is all the monsters are right?)
Oh for fuck's sake.
Grandpa Flamenco will be Final Boss.
Mark my words.
>Masayoshi's dad is actually still alive
>he returns as Flamenco Vader
with all the plot twists, this his has to be one of them
Why not both at the same time?
This shit has turned off to be so fucking crazy that it's possible.
>not Flamenco God
At this point i'm willing to believe the writers will pull everything out of their arse to sweep us off our feet.
>Red Axe staged all of this to give Masayoshi the full superhero experience
He will become the disembodied concept of Justice itself and fight the concept of Evil on a higher plane of existance. It will be 24 minutes of the highest quality animation you've ever seen, and Goto will give a speech that moves you to tears. At the end of it all, Goto's gf is revealed to be the one true Goddess to rule above all, and she is proud of her children for choosing the correct path. Masayoshi marries the Ishihara and they grow older and ship their half Justice demi God babies with Gotos half God babies while teaching them about sentai and toku. It will be glorious.
>because Masayoshi has terminal cancer and only Red Axe, Ishihara and Goto know about it
so make a wish the anime?
>TTGL throwing galaxies again
I don't think I'm prepared for the finale, also why Goto's GF has not been introduced yet?
She's probably the final boss and Goto will have to kill her in order to save humanity and the universe
>implying the battle wont destroy the 4th, 5th, and 6th dimensions
gf is might be someone we already know, just to knock us off are feet again
>in the middle of the final battle it alternates to 3D animation, then 2D, then Live action, then 8-bits and it switches between them for all the battle until the universe is restored again
Thinking in all the possibilites makes me excited as fuck, I can't fucking tell how this will end but I'm fucking sure it'll be awesome.
>gf is might be someone we already know
>final battle will be played out in live action by the seiyuus
>Final battle becomes actual toku
I literally can't think of a better ending for this show
how was any of the series like MGR:R?
>metal gear rising was the first to ever have a prime minister/president/whatever as the bad guy
it's still nothing alike, at all
Please, god, no. I just watched Cabin in the Woods. Don't insinuate something similar.
MC gets beaten to a pulp but keeps fighting for what he believes in and succeeds, defeating a seemingly indestructible foe.
What if Flamencos are like Tomatoes
so like every anime ever?
god damnit you people, put on your tinfoil hats
>if i ignore every point they make, i can strawman the entire argument!
how the fuck would anyone pay the bill, it would be in the hundreds of billions, possibly more
lets not derail the thread.
THIS IS ABOUT ALIENS, also best reveal ever
turns out his beams weren't made of justice but alien technology
How is it that I've missed this anime until now? Holy shit, what a great show. its utterly amazing, unpredictable and ridiculously entertaining. the characters are fantastic, even mari who is a shit, and it keeps you wondering what will happen next/what the fuck is flamenco
Why is everybody watching KLK this season instead of Samurai Flamenco?
Because people foolishly still thinks Trigger will save anime.
lets not bring klk fags into this or else they will come in and shitpost. they are used to being in 10 threads all at the same time.
i hope the alien designs are as great as the from beyond ones
is that marcoh from fma?
I'm going to miss the Prime Minister Ori arc.
the real justice was locked up in jail while the fake justice went around rusing the others
Greatest thing about the SamFlam is how all the sidecharacters still act like normal people put in these ridiculous situations because of their ties to hazama
That only applies to Goto, Mizuki and Manager though.
and those 3 are the best.
the way goto jumps out of the car here is fucking hilarious, looks like a ragdoll
we will all miss the buddha ironman suit that ran on public approval ratings
mmm maybe i should pick this up
>Score: 6.90 (scored by 7187 users)
so it's a too bad too good kinds of show
>Caring about MAL scores
Fuck off back there, will ya?

it really is a roller coaster, you have some really bad moments but just when you are going to drop it, it redeems itself.
Possibly the great thing i've seen in a superhero show/anime.
>buddha ironman suit that ran on public approval ratings
There needs to be an action figure/model of this. ASAP.
>American hero bullshit
>has 米 on his forehead
And you actually thought you can trust this guy.
>kiddies pick it up because it reminds them of their fav epic movie kickass
>WOOOOOOW WHAT THE FUCK ARE THESE MONSTERS
The reason I like it so much is because it's basically a tokusatsu without the constraints of sub-par effects or a lack of technology. It doesn't have to resort to stop motion orr rubber costumes to show its monsters, so the possibilities are endless.
>it's basically a tokusatsu without the constraints of sub-par effects or a lack of technology. It doesn't have to resort to stop motion orr rubber costumes to show its monsters, so the possibilities are endless.
It's actually a subtle parody/love letter to tokusatsu. And sentai, and kick-ass/realistic superhero-types, etc. etc.
If you actually read most of those reviews, it's mostly idiot kids whining about how much they dislike things that are different.
Because the Tomato holds you.
why would you ever want to look at those reviews, ever?
If the score is low like Samumenco, it's interesting to find out who's the faggot behind it and laugh.
>it was so epic for the win until something happened
Garbage doesnt lose its title merely because a few hipsters on /a/ latch to it. It is one of those universally shunned shows with a minuscule circlejerk around here.
I literally lol'd for 2 minutes when i saw this. Best kaijin ever.
Oh shit, Justice is Red A...liens?!
I watch and love both. Stop trying incite conflict.
If I'd count on shit like that from MAL, I might have accidentally missed stuff like Symphogear (hypothetically, since I've been following since the 1st episode), and I would have been PLATINUM MAD for not watching that show which is pure gold.
SF is just too deep for them, which really isn't a compliment to SF so much as an insult to MAL.
Watching both. Stop being so underage.
I really want to shut my brain off and just try and enjoy this show for the crazy as fuck ride that it is. But then comes along episodes like 16 that are genuinely realistic, emotional and well paced, and it really throws me out of the groove I need to be in for what will undoubtedly follow. Thank god there's only a few episodes left, the swerves and tonal whiplash experienced have left what was once my neck as nothing but a fine powder.
Your face when his face.
Samurai Cop uniform fucking sucked.
Samurai = Good
Flamenco = Bad
Which is why all of the Flamencos are evil or at least, seemed evil.
>giving a fuck about MAL reviews
How is Flamenco Ruby evil?
Where do the Flamengers fit in?
I thought was on to something there but apparently not.
Maybe you are onto something.
Masayoshi will defeat the Alien Flamencos or whatever they'll pull the same shit as the president and it turns out they were the only thing preventing the Alien Samurais from invading.
Flamenco = Gundam
Everyone is Gundam
>Flamenco Girl Reborn (Ribbon)
>One of them isn't Samurai Flamenlady
Epic, simply epic
If ever there was, it would probably Ruby.
I mean, Mari hates Masayoshi and Moe is pure heart but not justice-oriented.
I cannot wait for a big fat "You're on candid camera!"
Anyone got a gif of the scene when prime minister activates his special armour and all the prime minister photos have their eyes light up? Couldn't stop laughing when that happened.
Bumping for this
That scene was fucking hilarious, I couldn't breathe from laughing.
So the next arc is aliens? Will SamFlam leave the earth?
