Don't read this blog if you haven't watched up to episode 11.
This is sort of a mini-review or something to get off my chest since the Samurai Flamenco Discussion doesn't promote blogs and reviews.
I was not a fan of slice of life shows because I was mostly a Shonen fan. I was attracted to this show because I was a fan of Tiger and Bunny and this series reminded me of it. I thought it was going to involve real folks becoming heroes. After episode 7, the show did a major game changer. Things became unreal. You don't see a lot of anime series that have the guts or balls to do this. The tone of the show was comedic became dark all of the sudden. After episode 10, I thought it was the end of the show. What can Samurai Flamenco do? You have your final climax, and the heroes are pushed over the edge. With episode 11, it introduces a new team of characters while Goto and Mari are not shown at all. I feel there is an inconsistency with the tone of this show. Samurai Flamenco is desensitizing the audience of the brutal violence. The show is becoming more of a satire on Power Rangers with some dark humor. While people were slaughtered, your so called heroes were bickering about who is the leader, who is red. Personally, I enjoy the first half of the series. It could have ended on episode 10.
Samurai Flamenco is one of those underrated shows. It's not for everyone. I wonder about the direction of the show. Who knows? I hoping this series has a well thought out and satisfying ending that tops episode 10.
