Synopsis

Masayoshi Hazama: a man who has become a superhero "by himself" with no superhuman powers or any sort of high-tech conversions, NONE!!

Hidenori Goto: a cop who found out the true identity of "the superhero" by a strange twist of fate and thus constantly gets in trouble thanks to Hazama, the superhero.

This is the story of the birth of a true hero featuring these two young men with a touch of comedy and serious drama, while they come face to face with hardships as they search for the true meaning of becoming a hero of justice in this world!

Let me sum up about 90% of people who saw Samurai Flamenco and dropped it.
"AHHHH! A REAL GORILLA?!"

By now, this initial twist should be pretty well known to everyone. Samurai Flamenco is a very....different anime. It's certainly one of the most original I have seen in a long while. But is that really a good thing?

STORY: 8/10
Samumenco goes through a multitude of story arcs, each varying in quality, genre, themes, etc.

First there's the "Kick-Ass" arc where everything is as normal as it gets. A young model named Hazama Masayoshi, obsessed with super sentai superheroes, decides to become one but realizes being a read more

Samurai Flamenco is a strange animal. Despite its conventional appearance, it is full of twists and turns.

Recommendations

Both feature super heroes in modern day society. The relationships of the two main characters feel fairly similar, too. While Tiger & Bunny features actual superpowers, Samurai Flamenco focuses on the aspect of good deeds and growing up.

I recommended "Chu-2" for "SF" since both have characters who are poco locos and also have characters who are just going with the fore mentioned's flow. characters........also, since there is no "Kickass" anime, "Chu-2" for "SF" will have to suffice.
