Storyline

In a strange world of swords, guns and kimonos, cell phones and cybernetic body parts - a black samurai, Afro Samurai, seeks revenge from a man named Justice who killed his father and also happens to be the #1 fighter in the world. After Afro earns the rank of #2 fighter needed to challenge the #1, he starts his lonely walk to revenge. He faces bounty hunters, bar thugs and fanatical monks - all of whom seem to have clues to the whereabouts of Justice and all of whom covet the position of #2 for themselves. Also along the way we are introduced to Afro's chatty companion - the light hearted Ninja Ninja. Written by Nick Miles

Awesome Show/
11 January 2007 | by TonyApexSee all my reviews

I first heard about this a little after the e3 convention 2006. And was amazed by the sound of the title "Afro Samurai" Right then in there i had a vision of this character looking like Jim Kelly from enter the dragon.

Needless to say he reminds me of him in some way's. Anyhow i had awaited the premiere of this show.

And It's awesome in all aspects of the word. It has great voice overs, Scene's, and blood.

If you are into arse kicking samurai's and Samuel L. Jackson. Afro Samurai is the show for you! I highly recommend watching it.

Im not sure when the DVD comes out.

But i will be on the look out.

Enjoy IMDb'rs.
