Samurai Flamenco Begins on All the Anime Site (Updated)

posted on by Andrew Osmond
Part 1 of new series due to go up at 9 p.m.

The new anime series Samurai Flamenco is now streaming on the All the Anime website. According to All the Anime's facebook page, the slight lag in streaming part 1 was caused by a delayed delivery of subtitles, which has now been rectified. Samurai Flamenco will join the series Kill la Kill, available free to viewers in the UK, the ROI and the Isle of Man.

Both series are being streamed by All the Anime in advance of the new online broadcaster, Wakanim.co.uk (a British version of the French Wakanim.tv service), which is due to be launched in mid-October.

All the Anime later tweeted to apologise for problems with simulcasts on the site, but added, "Wakanim's beta site should be running next week so it'll be a smoother experience."

Samurai Flamenco's story follows Masayoshi Hazama (Toshiki Masuda), a man who becomes a superhero "by himself" without superpowers or technology, and Hidenori Goto (Tomokazu Sugita), a cop who finds out Hazama's true identity and thus constantly gets in trouble thanks to "the superhero." The anime's tagline reads, "To those 'adults' who don't want to become adults..." and "Hero will never give up, never hide, never be defeated, never accept evil." The show also stars Chie Nakamura as Sumi Ishihara, Juurouta Kosugi as Joji Kaname, Satoshi Mikami as Akira Konno, and Toru Ohkawa as Jun Harazuka. The series will air for half a year.

Takahiro Ōmori (Natsume's Book of Friends, Baccano!, Princess Jellyfish) directs, while Chinatsu Kurahana (Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000%, Aquarion Evol original character designs) is designing the characters.
