Samurai Flamenco Review — B

Hero will never give up, never hide, never be defeated, never accept evil!

A very interesting story that went directions I did not expect. A normal person decides to become a superhero, and stops petty vandalism and littering. He befriends a police officer who helps him out.

Many people ragequit this show after a certain event in the earlier episodes which I won’t say more about for fear of spoiling. But I never really understood the objections to this event. It made the story more interesting. Reality is boring. Sure, the show may not have ended up being exactly what people expected. But where’s the fun in seeing what you expect to see?

Be warned, the first episode was pretty boring, from what I remember. I had no intention to keep watching the show after that. Fortunately things picked up quickly.

Why haven’t I rated the show higher? There’s nothing specifically wrong with the show I can think of. Mainly, it just didn’t click with me. I think the issue is that this is a show about superheroes and about super sentai. But I have virtually no familiarity with any of that. So much of the show’s efforts are wasted on someone like me. I still enjoyed the show. But I imagine much of it whooshed straight past me.

  • Storytelling – B – Always destroys my expectations.
  • Voice – A – Odd mix of boring reality and the world of TV.
  • Characters – B – Excellent.
  • Attention Grab – B – Kept interest throughout.
  • Production – B – A few issues, but mostly okay.
  • Overall – B
