Samurai Flamenco – 11
No seriously. I’ve put off writing this episode not only because I’ve been busy, but because I don’t really know what to think about Samurai Flamenco anymore – it changes its identity like I change my nail varnish!
I laughed throughout the run of the episode and since I take scribbled notes as I watch, this is what I ended up with…..which isn’t entirely helpful when trying to write a post a week later….when a touch tipsy…..generally this wasn’t a great idea.
I don’t know what I think of this latest mood swing – I’ve said repeatedly that I don’t really like Super Sentai shows and now Samurai Flamenco has gone full on Power Rangers! I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop, for everything to be some sort of elaborate set up, for things to actually make sense to me again! I can’t really properly enjoy the show at the moment the way I used to because I feel disconnected from the characters – they aren’t the same people I really feel in love with in the first seven episodes.
And now we have all these new characters, which makes me fear that Goto, Stationery Guy and the Flamenco Girls are going to be majorly sidelined – and that makes me sad. I really do hope that Samuari Flamenco has some sort of interesting twist up its sleeve, because if it is just going to be a straight sentai show from now on I don’t think I’ll be interested in continuing.
