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 too much thought and reflection) don’t want to evacuate everyone and just want to save themselves. There is much angsting over the possibilities and whether they should reveal it to the world. Yes its all a bit silly, but if intended as parody it falls under Poe’s Law of being indistinguishable from just being a pile of crap, badly written story.
That’s the central problem right now. Samurai Flamenco has simply become badly written. It has crap dialogue, a stupid story and one-dimensional characters. If intended as a parody, which it is probably supposed to be, it’s a bad one that just mirrors the worst parts of the genre it’s parodying. Even if I could get into this story they’re telling and get emotionally invested in Masayoshi’s role as the leader, the next episode could pull another Guillotine Gorilla and render the entire previous batch of episodes meaningless all over again. I’ll keep an eye on the next episode, just in case it does pull another Guillotine Gorilla, or in case it finally is revealed this is all Red Axe’s new TV show (which if it was, it stopped being funny 3 episodes ago). But unless otherwise stated, Samurai Flamenco is DROPPED.
