Wait a minute - - her name’s Moe? One of the Flamenco Girls is actually named after MOE? Well, hats off for someone finally goofing on that stuff so directly.
Normally, I skip over intros after I’ve already seen them once (saves a lot of time during all this chunk viewing). On this occasion, however, I just idly left it running and, if the goal of all this is to just ‘figure out’ the show, then I’m glad I did, because the intro pretty clearly confirms my big theory. We’re now in the ‘dream portion’ of this plot. Either Samumenco had some major psychotic break last episode, or he’s literally just sleeping and dreaming, now… just like he does at the end of the intro.
Hell, the running gag about the Monsters all exploding themselves at the end of every fight would support that even further. Not only is it just a patently nonsensical visual - - the kind you’d see in a dream - - but Samumenco’s even commenting on its absurdity like he would if he were entering the lucid state. The recurring cutaways to the government meetings even have this sort-of dreamy quality; as if they’re the half-formed, substantiating details that Samumenco’s filling his fantasy out with (without actually thinking them through).
Of course, if I do end up being right about this, it’s an oddly early point to twist this series (if it’s actually going to run a full 22-26 episodes. If it’s 10-13, then it’s at a more sensible position). Carrying along with the speculation, I’ll wager Samunenco’s probably going to wake out of this dream once we get to the 2/3’rd marks - - twisting this all into direction I can’t even picture, right now.
