A Must See

by Umbrae on 9/14/2008

It's one of the best anime I've watched. I was introduced to this anime in my Japanese History course. Teacher wanted to show us the otaku and the mixture of East (samurai) and West (hip-hop/Jazz) cultures. Almost everyone in that class went and bought this series... in DVD! But since I got me a PS3, I bought the Blu-Ray version. The quality is top-notch and the extras are pretty good. Some behind the scenes and the-making-of. Afro Samurai season 2 is coming, by the way. Looking forward to that as well. Buy this series. You won't regret. Read More

Afro Samurai

on 9/20/2014

The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world (don't they all?) and follows Afro's pursuit of the "#1 Headband" which is said to grant god-like power to the one who possesses it. Just so happens that the guy who currently possesses it killed our main man's father right in front of him at an early age, hence Afro's quest for vengeance. The trick is that nobody can challenge the owner of the "#1 Headband" unless he possesses the "#2 Headband". Needless to say, the owner of #2 is beset on all sides by every bloodthirsty yahoo who lusts for the power of the #1. That's where the endless carnage comes in. Limbs and heads fly to and fro with whimsical abandon, blood splatters everywhere, death is at pretty much every stop on the Afro-train. Along the way he encounters seductive kunoichi, cyborgs, a dual-bladed opponent in a teddy bear mask, a rocket-launching psychopath, a cybernetic double, and much, much more. Read More

Editors Note
Note PULP FICTION's Samuel L. Jackson brings his trademark cool to this hip animated series. Afro Samurai (Jackson) is on the hunt for vengeance as he follows the inappropriately named Justice (Ron Perlman, HELLBOY), who is his father's murderer. This mash-up of samurai life and hip-hop features the musical talents of Wu Tang Clan's The RZA. AFRO SAMURAI is available in regular and uncut versions.
Reviews
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's downbeat but stylish, lobbing in leftfield ideas and serious slice 'n' dice..." 11/01/2007 p.143
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a monochrome anime style as a backdrop for immeasurable geysers of violent bloodletting....AFRO SAMURAI certainly earns its cool credentials." 10/01/2007 p.131
