    .....not particularly because I want to (since i've heard it's horrible) but because the cable box in my room broke and watching Netflix is the best I can do until comcast sends me a replacement

    edit: I have a hard time believing it's horrible though considering all the warnings I've heard about it are that it's weird and Campy....and so was the original Sailor moon.........which I loved......also it's a noitamina anime and their animes are generally a beacon of light in an ocean of crap

    It starts out good....until Episode 7

    This is where the show goes from being about a vigilante fighting street crime to a guy taking drugs to become a giant robot gorilla with a guillotine in his chest that chops off a cop's head, all the while pledging allegiance to a cyborg criminal named King Torture.

    Muscle, muscle! Hustle, hustle!

    Two words: SIT DOWN.

    The only thing worse than maggots who want HxH removed based on personal preference are maggots who betray a show they love just because its ratings aren't to their liking. Also Ayumu.

    makes as much sense as fighting a stripper with a sneaker for a body

    But at the very least, Sailor Moon was always set up as magical girls fighting eccentric villains.

    With Samurai Flamenco, the initial set-up was like a less violent version of Kickass where the hero is just a guy on the street who throws office equipment at people because his concept of justice places him more on the level of a vigilante than a cop. He had to deal with scenarios from the ground up like having to make friends with a police officer to hunt down criminals, get a steady shipment of office supply weapons from an admirer, inspire a pop idol to fight criminals as well. It was all somewhat grounded in reality. And then it turns into a super sentai show with robots, cyborgs, flying ships, and other bullshit.

    There's suspending some disbelief for an overall eccentric show, and then there's pulling a bait-and-switch on the viewers from fighting ordinary criminals to evil robot overlords & Power Ranger syndicates. Would Shindler's List have won awards if 1/3rd into the movie, the nazis were actually cyborg vampires and Shindler had a utility belt that shot nazi-killing laser beams with pelvic thrusts, resulting in the rest of the movie being about Shindler going into space to fight the remaining nazi's who colonized Mars and disguised themselves as his friends?

    To reiterate, SIT DOWN.

    It changes genres and does a complete 180. To me, it ruined the show, but I'd imagine the show has its defenders. People will say anything that shits the bed was actually a parody the whole time and the audience was just not deep enough to understand the complexities behind a show's shark jump.

    i guess it depends on the presentation

    you can only make something like that work if its already a subtle part of the show. if it just changes for no reason thats betraying the viewers

    if ur reading this ur hot

    After ep 7, you're better off finding a good anime like Kuromukuro.
    Rewatching anime and other shows is better than watching Samurai Flamenco.

    Wait until you reach the end of ep 7. Then you'll find out why it's bad.

    And then you will sit down and marathon the rest.
