I really like the overall effect of Samurai Flamenco. I believe the writers are eventually going to deliver a message that I will agree with. I think it’s already a profound show – it’s an art movie for otaku. But I suspect it’s going to get even better before it’s done.
I could cite the tropes involved, but that would involve spoilers, and it wouldn’t add much to your enjoyment of the show. So if you’re not watching it already, watch it from episode 1. You’ll thank me later.
