3.0 out of 5 stars Visually nice, but cliche September 24, 2007
Format:DVD
Good to look at, but cliche.....isn't that what most anime is nowadays? I really don't understand why this stigma has to be attached to EVERY black character in anime.....the hip-hop thumping, blunt-smoking, brooding ladies man. Sure, it sounds nice, but isn't there alot more to our character? Frankly, it's wearing thin, and I see racism growing because of it, People seem to be forgetting all the contributions we have made!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best, but still a must see January 26, 2009
Format:DVD
Afro Samurai is the story of a man who is out to avenge the death of his father. In order to do this he must find Justice(the current number 1) and must also retain possession of the number 2 headband. The story of the headbands is that the number 1 can only be challenged by the number 2, but the number 2 can be challenged by anybody. Afro is accompanied by Ninja Ninja who serves as the comedic relief for the show. Along the way Afro runs into many problems such as a man with a crossbow/grenade launcher, a dream reader who works for the empty seven, a robotic clone of himself using data the dream reader stole from him, an old friend named Kuma , and of course Justice. The villains are pretty bizarre in this show. Kuma is dressed as a giant teddy bear and Justice is a mutated cowboy/samurai trying to become a god. The music in this series is awesome and the animation is just as good. The animation has a lot of dark colors with a big hint of red from all of the blood spilled in the series. This series is good but it also has its weaknesses. Justice is awesome but for being the main villain he is under used. As a matter of fact Justice is in the show about as much as Afro drinking lemonade is. Another weak point is the final battle between Justice and Afro which only gets about ten minutes of screen time. This may not be the best anime ever made but it definitely deserves to be watched.

4.0 out of 5 stars The first of two good anime films March 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unlike most anime where the only White voice you recognize is Patrick Stewart, the voice of Sam Jackson is refreshing. The style in which this film is drawn is different, in a good way.
Like its sequel, Afro Samuri Ressurection, this film is funny, engaging, and filled with great fight scenes.

We don't know yet. It did well in the ratings on Spike TV.

SUBTITLES
The Director's Cut of Afro Samurai has NO subtitles. Audio is English only. (And the funny thing is they randomly throw Japanese phrases in here and there.)
