Another announcement came out of Aniplex of America recently, this time concerning the Manglobe (Samurai Champloo) produced Samurai Flamenco. The series is set to stream this October, and the company also plans to release it on home video.
Here’s how Aniplex sums it up:
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!
