This show is a beautiful lie...
I don't think there was a show recently that sported it's insanity like a badge of honor. The easiest way to describe the story initially would be that it's Kick-Ass for Toku shows (those live action rubber suit shows like Power Rangers).
Masayoshi (our main) grew up loving these kind of shows but keeps his passion under wraps in favor of his modeling carrier. At one point he decides to follow his dream and becomes a "hero" himself. His ideals of justice include the tiniest things like littering or moving the trash out in the middle of the night. It's all rather trivial with the public adjusting to their new found hero, an idol group forming a squad of side-kick heroines and the general mystery of Samurai Flamenco's identity for everyone. Then after a couple episodes, Flamenco cooperates with the police and something known as the "Guillotine Gorilla-incident" happened and with it the arrival of his first nemesis. From here on out the show was never the same again. It's like the safety barriers on a roller coaster closed down and the breaks cut loose and you go down the ride full speed. What first appears to be a drug-infused hallucination turns out to be reality and nothing is off limits. There are aliens (From Beyond), a secret base below Japan for Flamenco, a full on Flamengers squad with the usual colors and transforming robots, heroes becoming real, plenty of twist reveals, a battle in space and a talk with god of the universe.
I can understand that the direction for the show wasn't all that fun for everyone and there is a reckless disregard for logic (and drops in animation quality) but it's great to have something this unpredictable to sit through. The only way to top the whole thing would have been a live-action finale at the end.
whatever you may think this show is about during the first few episodes, your wrong. what you think after 6 episodes, your wrong. just basically youll be wrong any time you try to label this show in your mind. a few times i was saying to myself, "oh, this is where they drop the insanity and turn average". that feeling would usually last about 10 mins and then it was "oh right, this show is awesome".
but i guess your either down with the bizarre or not. really fun.
I like this anime. It's amazing and very fun.
