Storyline

In the distant past, a Japanese samurai embarks on a mission to defeat the evil shape-shifting wizard Aku. Before he can complete his task, though, he is catapulted thousands of years into the future. He finds himself in a world where Aku now enjoys complete power over every living thing. Dubbing himself "Jack," he sets out on a new quest--to right the wrongs that have been done by his enemy and to find a way back to his own time so he can destroy the evil for good. Written by Alan Back <ajback@yahoo.com>

Amazing. Anyone who doesn't love it is blind
19 January 2003 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

I love this show so much. Someone might complain that there isn't much of a plot for this show, but it's meant for people to watch one episode at a time. There's no need to watch the entire series. The art is AMAZING!!!!! (!) Genndy Tartakovsky changes the ratio of the screen for dramatic effects, how they tell the story is amazing. There is no over all plot that carries throughout the series, all the plot you'll ever need is in the episode itself. Even if you don't like the story, the art in itself is beautiful. Full of style and grace.
