Review:

I found Samurai Flamenco to be unexpected. The anime was all over the place, yet the story is good. It was unexpectedly deep and had a lot of values in it. The main character is very admirable. I think it would be safe to say that the anime had 3 different arcs. Each arc had its own direction. I think the anime would feel ridiculous to super hero fans. Though I enjoyed it very much. It had a good amount of action and was pretty funny at time. The twist and turns in the story were totally unexpected. Overall it was a good anime.

Overall Rate: 7/10
