So I just started watching Samurai Flamenco, halfway through Episode 4 at the moment. I must say I'm quite enjoying it so far, especially the realistic grit of it all. It's a really nice break from Kill La Kill's over-the-top rosary of action and plot twists. I love an anime that can ground itself to one theme or concept and explore it well without having to resort to asspulls a la Gurren Lagann. Japan's answer to Kick-Ass sure is shaping up well!

It just keeps getting better and better. Look forward to episode 11.

Well if you like realism then you're going to be in for a fun ride OP!
>>
>>102190311
I don't know if OP is serious or joking. But it's a very good anime nonetheless.

Hope you won't drop it like a big crying loser. The show manage to make the most strange thing a normality for everyone in one or two episode time so.
>>
Yeah OP I totally believe you haven't already watched all episodes!

Why do you even bother, SamFlamfags?

I dropped this after he defeated the big bad because it jumped the shark too hard and fast and felt it was a good cut off point.
Anyone know what episode that was, might pick it back up.

That's ep 11. You're in for the worst arc of the series after that.

You're a fucking idiot. It IS a bad thing. You don't even know where the phrase came from, do you?
>>
>>102191682
>regurgitating "anime critic" tier vocab
>b-but all anime should conform to the rules of storytelling.
"Jumping the shark" is a comfort phrase used by plebeians who can't possibly parse the larger picture SamFlam is trying to paint. I can't possibly blame you for your lack of foresight, considering you're probably underage (as demonstrated by your ad hominem - does saying "fucking idiot" make you feel all grown up?) and not very intelligent either. I'm not trying to say Samurai Flamenco is a particularly deep show, but you seem to lack the intellectual faculties required even to grasp doggerel like Sekirei. Please kill yourself, or fuck off back to Reddit.

Cheers

Not him, but "jumping the shark" is a bad thing.

However, I don't think SF did that, but I can see why people who thought this was going to be a KickAss type of show did.
>>
>>102191875
Yes
>>
>>102191982
The problem is simply the sudden shift that came literally out of nowhere. When you look back at the bigger picture of SF it's not that bad and you see what the show is trying to do, but it's fucking jarring during the first twist.

It's like after Fonzie decided to jump the shark that he wanted to make a career out of risky marine life acrobatics, and let's say it's great and it goes on for 100 episodes. Sure at the end of it you might think that that was a really cool show but it doesn't stop people from being rightly turned off and wishing that the fun slice of life moments would have continued.

He was real. Hazama simply destroyed that reality and made a new one because of the dead kid.

>>102190311
Episode 4?
can't wait for your reaction 3 episode later
>>
>>102192220
No, I think it was pretty obvious there was going to come actual villains into the show. Not that anyone could predict GG, but still, if you're familiar with Sentai and that type of shows, it shouldn't have come completely out of the blue. If you don't like that type of shows and wanted it to be more Kick-Ass like I guess it's not surprising you won't like this.

I myself am loving the shit out of this show, and think it's had a nice development. I'm sure it could have been handled better, but I feel for example the animation quality is a much bigger issue than anything else.
>>
>Actual fucking aliens now

I don't know whether or not to take this show seriously.
>>
>>102193108
>ever taking this show seriously
Holy shit you're missing the entire fucking point of this show.

>>102190558

Samurai Flamenco was good for its realism, and then it keeps being good for its ridiculousness that makes no sense. 10/10 would publish under Marvel's name.
>>
>>102193296
It just shifts tone too often. I'm never sure how I should react I mean we just went from a Sentai force fighting aliens to government conspiracy, to an exosuit powered by public support and even more aliens.

I suppose I should just enjoy the ride but god damn.

It's ironic because I think OP was about, 60% likely of being serious, more likely than not likely. I marathoned this series in between cours and this was my opinion until episode 11 (not even monkey madness fazed me).

OP here. I just finished episode 7. It's... all a dream, right? He's gonna wake up eventually, isn't he?

Eh?
