Review: Afro Samurai


Afro Samurai is a mini-series based on a Takashi Okazaki manga. The series takes place in a unique world that is part ancient Japan and part futuristic science fiction fantasy. Samuel L. Jackson stars as “Afro” the solitary samurai on a quest to avenge the wrongful death of his father. Afro sheds no tears and knows no love.

This is an anime I was looking forward to since it mixes things up a bit, but it was even better then I expected. This anime is a mix of Ninja Scroll and Cowboy Bebop with the bloody fights, good music, great animation, and fantastic plot line. The anime is simple about a man who is avenging his father, and everything in his life has led him to revenge, this is all taking place in the futuristic feudal Japan ere. I just couldn’t get enough of it, and I was happy I had all five episodes on one disc. You have to see all of it, the animation is amazing and the plot is simple enough to follow but with all the intricacies tied in. A must see anime for any anime fan.
