    OK, aside from mistaken GotoxMasayoshi impression that Mari has, I’m looking forward to how they’re going to defeat that tabloid editor. In a way, it reminds me of Gatchaman Crowds and Tiger&Bunny, where the question is whether we needed heroes in the first place, or whether the people that Samumenco is protecting is worth it, considering all the bad eggs. It’s just annoying to see everyone whip out their phone and chase him around for the bounty.

    In terms of the police’s relationship with Samurai Flamenco/Flamenco Girls – perhaps there’s a partnership deal in the making? I’m still waiting on Goto in that uniform that’s show in the promo image. XD I’m a little iffy in the girls joining up with Mari so quick, but it looks like they’ll be a fun bunch.

      Hopefully Goto’s proposal for the police has some clause which prevents people trying to unmask Samurai Flamenco. Otherwise, I don’t know how they’re going to get around the tabloids.

      I… never got in to Tiger and Bunny so I can’t comment on any parallels or similarities, but I think the similarities between Samumenco and Gatchaman are worth looking at. I think there’s definitely potential to explore the idea you mentioned of, “Is everyone worth saving?”, but it’ll probably be dependant on our ultimate villain, if there is one. But both series have chosen to explore what it means for ordinary people to take up the mantle of a superhero. A more direct and thorough comparison once Samumenco is over would make for an interesting read!!

      YEAH, I’M WAITING FOR THE PROMO UNIFORM TOO. Goto rocks it. Although, I wonder what sort of strain it’ll put on Goto and Masayoshi’s relationship. Goto is frustrated by him enough as it is; imagine if he had to accompany Samurai Flamenco everywhere!!
