Samurai Flamenco just gave the fuck up on itself. It’s all supposition on my part but I think they realised that they don’t have the budget to keep up on what they envisioned so they decided to go all out and turn absurd in hope that it will catch on and turn viral. Too bad it’s too trite and kinda shitty. That is the only explanation I had with how the quality of the script that gave us awesome clever lines like “mask rider is a illegal biker” and production value high enough to make a silly scene of chasing over an umbrella had so much heart suddenly turned into something cliche and boring.

The first sign of things to come is the sudden shitification of Goto. Goto was your realist cynical man who had lost all passion in life. He was smart, sarcastic and acted totally like a real human being. Then he became a boring person who says cheesy shit. Before episode 3, when asked why he became a police officer, you might expect him to say something like he did it because he had passion in becoming a hero but realise it’s not what it seem and the only reason he kept on with it  is because it is an easy job. But NO!  For some reason, he went through shitification and act like he had some tragic back story to tell instead.

Red Axe was suppose to be that washed out artist that tried to use Samurai Flamenco to regain back his fame but I don’t think they followed that through.

Flamenco girl should be something more interesting that told us the double face of a pop idol but she just kinda became a one note character that stomps people nuts.

Samurai Flamenco should be a story about a silly boy trying to be a vigilante and ended up failing but learned something along the way while rekindling the passion of a jaded guy . It should be light hearted and witty but then it turned all serious and stupid.

I am utterly disappointed with it.
