Anime Watch Club (latest episodes: Samurai Flamenco episodes 8-11)

Postby kkslider5552000 » August 30th, 2018, 9:38 pm

A club for all your anime themed watches.

...

I'm kidding, please don't actually buy a watch in 2018.

But seriously, I thought this would be a fun idea. For quite a while Meme, Jecka, Manga and I were regularly watching certain anime series together and it was a fun time. But it became increasingly difficult to get everyone together on the same day so we eventually dropped that (I think Slayers Try took us the better part of a year). So instead, I decided to totally steal from r/anime and make a thread where we could all watch a few episodes of an anime a week and then talk about it. Or something like that.

As chosen by Jecka, our first anime is Samurai Flamenco! What is a samurai flamenco? You'll have to watch to find out!

So the way this is going to work, is that we'll be watching 3-4 episodes a week. Now during that week, any discussion about those episodes will be in spoiler tags until next Thursday (basically until I put up my post about the episodes). And then after that, those episodes can be discussed without spoiler tags, and the next 3-4 episodes have to be spoiler tagged for the next week. Fairly simple I think.

Hope you can join us!

Sounds fun :D

Spoiler: episodes 1,2 and 3
I'm sold. Wasn't sure at first, but this is too funny not to like. I love how rule-abiding the hero is. Also curry dates and umbrella sharing *reads too much into it* And now there a prize for his head lol

Hehe, long ago with friends we decided to rewatch Digimon. I don't even remember on which season we stopped...

Good luck! ;)

I can't believe I almost forgot to put the specific number of episodes at the start! I do need to specify or else this will get needlessly confusing...

Spoiler:
01

-Is it supposed to be easy to mispronounce it as “Samurai Flamingo”?
-Why is a superhero in a dark alley? Is this like the anime equivalent of Hitchcock?
-Huh, they just casually mention Kamen Rider. Not even like a copyright-free similar name
-…I like how we spent two minutes just to prove that nothing interesting happened before what they showed at the very start
-“He was smoking in a non-smoking zone” that fiend!
-Just saying dude, your stance against the evils of minor crimes and obsession with justice isn’t that different from villains in dozens of other anime
-“That just sounded creepy” indeed
-The teenagers are gonna Envy him in the phone booth :V
-Or maybe he’s gonna beat the crap out of them
-Oh, maybe the show will actually be about something after all
-Well, that was…something. I’m not even sure what to get from this series based off that. I think it’s supposed to be a comedy but the comedy attempts are so low-key and nothing that it’s genuinely hard to say.

02

-“My Umbrella’s missing” …oh no?
-LITTERING?! YOU MONSTER
-saying “I am not a suspicious character” does in fact, make you seem like a suspicious character
-“Ishihara-san really doesn’t like hobbies” Hahaha wow, that’s a very broad thing to dislike. ALL HOBBIES ARE BAD! > : (
-You’re going to break his pretty face! D:
-Oh I misread that as “And you’re very lonely”, which would’ve been amazing as a wtf random statement, but no.
-As someone who doesn’t use umbrellas, this is completely unrelateable to me
-“I’m a past offender”
-DRAMATIC UMBRELLA STEALING
-DRAMATIC RED LIGHT
-UMBRELLA!
-Mumen Rider would be proud
-I was kinda hoping he would just run into him, thus committing a much worse crime
-No one deserve to have their umbrella stolen, IT’S A FAKE WORSE THAN DEATH
-I was gonna complain about a show thinking 900,000 views in a week is some rare event worth noting but that actually seems accurate to what would happen.
-Well that episode seemed to work a bit better. Most of the first episode was kinda boring until the end.

03

-Yep, the live sentai event thing was inevitable in this series. I feel like I’ve seen that in literally any anime they could justify having it in (and even some that couldn’t)
-Money Rangers. A tremendous name.
-“Do you have a spare gun?” I’M SORRY, WHAT?!
-Calling something the “Wow Show” just makes me irrationally mad that they don’t actually rhyme
-“Glad you could join us-“ *PUNCH*, awesome.
-I want to see this movie where a guy goes from horse, motorcycle, jeep, back to horse, causing the two machines to explode
-He hugs one of the kids and he suddenly looks like 14 and awkward.
-I just realized that he wants the money
-But he’s donating it to charity. …ok?
-…well, I have to do it now.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=433jTl_rZB8
-This is a weird series
-“This feels really good!”
-This is easily the best episode so far


Now on to episodes 4-7. Episodes 1-3 now no longer need spoiler tags.

It is Jecka, only a week late

I told Slider this so I thought I'd say it here too
It's been 5 (Five) years since I watched this, since I actually watched it weekly as it aired and as I was doing so a couple things resurfaced in my memories.
Obv I can't say what (at least until we get to those episodes).
I will say
Spoiler:
this anime gets weird as hell
Also I'm interested to see people's thoughts
There might be a couple places you might feel like dropping it, but pls keep going.

Spoiler:
04

-I like how he calls himself samurai and doesn’t use a sword
-A woman grabbed her own breasts and it made clown honk noises. This scene lasted 2 seconds, and then they moved on like it didn’t happen. Ok. Sure.
-I see we have our “calling each other’s names all the time” moment. Except they forgot their names.
-“I received an offer from Hollywood” …well that abrupt
-And now they’re going to kill him, great
-Well that’s an entrance!
-Magical girl! :D
-Well these three won’t be having kids at this rate
-“You’re like me” Mentally unstable?
-I joke but it would be pretty easy to make that actually the premise of the story…
-I could not have predicted that kiss.
-Oh god, nipple tasers!
-“but I do think bad guys deserve to die” …what an odd thing to say as you…don’t kill the bad guys? Like I was gonna point out it was a sudden direction to go in, but now it’s a sudden direction to not go in!
-I mean, the main victim I saw her help is you so…




05

-I’m so confused by the time saying 7:49, are we mid-episode?!
-No, obviously it’s an in-universe thing
-Chalkboard Screechy Screech ironically has a lovely singing voice
-Tromboy pfft. Ok that’s great.
-Oh shit, there’s blood and cracks on the walls. They might be dead.
-“This kind of a thing happens all the time” I have my doubts about this
-He just ignored him, and the series itself ignored this fact
-He’s just gonna keep leaving every episode isn’t he?
-Oh no, those lip movements for totally believable singing. That’s…unfortunate.
-Kiss her, you fool
-Hey *ding* Hey *ding* Hey *ding*
-Dude, you’re not magically gonna get the script change
-She has a body pillow of him
-Who are these people? Is this like the world’s lamest villain teamup?
-Dynamic Entry!
-Wow…what a failure
-YES, COLORFUL EXPLOSIONS





06

-“You’ll die soon” …what a bizarre prediction
-The weapons turn out to just be guns :V
-“I don’t mind if she’s only using me :D
-“I’m a naughty girl” uh, slow down girl…
-You’re right, this is very odd
-“I’m not a suspicious character” is a line that should never work ever
-“acting tough, huh? Well I’m some random guy with glasses! So take that!”
-Thanks for explaining the use of a ballpoint pen
-STOP EXPLAINING HOW OFFICE SUPPLIES WORK
-Spiderai Flamingo
-He totally has a girlfriend, she just lives in Canada





07

-“Are nearing the final episode?” I mean, I know for a fact we’re not so…
-Nothing more American than a cow skull…?
-“The world is supposed to revolve around her”
-She’s eating fake flowers now
-Murdered parents, ok now this is a super hero story
-Some of the background music in this anime is profoundly lame
-You’re a good freak is my favorite type of failed compliment
-His superpower is to turn people into mummies
-I’m sorry, what?
-This is a dream…right?
-He has a guillotine for a stomach
-AND THEN IT SELF-DESTRUCTED, WHAT?!
AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!
I um…could not have predicted where this went by the end of the episode. I just assumed they were just gonna stay as a boring normal reality for this whole thing…I guess not?


You can't honestly tell me there's nothing to discuss after that last episode.

Spoiler:
Yup from here on this show becomes very wtf/wth (whichever you prefer, tho they're the same thing :P)
It was, I think, around here I wanted to drop the series, but didn't and I'm glad, it gets pretty good from what I remember.

Spoiler: Episode 7
Tequila Date! Also, MIND BLOWN! There is an actual villain in this show!

Spoiler: Episode 8
Swing Date! Also, CURRY DATE #4! NEW WEAPON! More reasons I should go to Staples during a zombie apocalypse. Finally, I'll buy up all the apples to torture everyone next time.

Spoiler: Episode 9
Coffee Date! Is this the last date?!!?!?!?! King torture makes his moves!

Spoiler: Episode 10
That was a dramatic episode. There's so much to unpack about what it means to be a superhero and supervillain.

I like the OP song.
