Samurai Flamenco episode 13 – Who cares anymore [dropped]

You probably saw this coming. The latest episode of Samurai Flamenco featured the super sentai team treating their situation very seriously. The monsters are coming in to destroy Japan and everyone needs to evacuate, but the corrupt politicians (for there is never anything other than corrupt politicians in anime because any other depiction would require […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 12 – Power Rangers

After the 3 week break, I get the feeling a whole lot of people will have jumped back into Samurai Flamenco and realised “holy crap I do not care about a single thing that is going on anymore”. Funnily enough that is what happens when you set fire to your original script a quarter of […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 11 – A lesson in storytelling

Let’s talk about storytelling. The absolute basics right here. Things like flow and character development, the kinds of things that are so taken for granted that you don’t even normally discuss them. Samurai Flamenco gives me a good opportunity to talk about these most basic of mechanics because of how it very deliberately ignores these […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 10 – It’s OK because it’s meta

All right guys, it was fun while it lasted. The Guillotine Gorilla moment was genius in its complete unpredictability and I felt thoroughly entertained for a brief while. But I think I’m happy now to call it a Jump the Shark moment. A true, almost definitive shark jumping moment, to the point that I can’t […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 8 – Still waiting for the drop

I knew it. Of course the infamous Gorilla incident didn’t happen. As soon as the episode began we had the director shout out “aaaaand cut” as the camera pulled back slightly to reveal the set. A man in a gorilla costume with a guillotine in the middle took off the head and complained about how […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 7 – If you’re viewing this post in the future, yes this is THAT episode

Shinmaru and Inushinde wanted their opinions of this episode shared with the Cart Driver audience. On this very special episode. Very, very special episode.  I recommend you maybe catch up before reading. Barely an hour after the episode aired my twitter feed was already starting to fill up with strings of whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats about this episode. Considering […]

Samurai Flamenco episode 6 – Fear office suplies

The thugs yelling “come on guys, there’s no reason to fear office supplies” may be my favourite line in anime for this year. Up there with “the squirrel turned into a butterfly” and “if she hugs me it will help me temporarily forget how lonely I am”. In a single line it convinced me that […]
