First of all I did not hate this anime Afro samurai had a lot of potential to be an amazing movie and I really enjoyed the art style and story which was pretty simple...

The Story: Basic and easy to follow in this movie with revenge centering around the plot for our "hero" if you would, for this tale.

Personally, This movie was fantastic as it fulfills the expectations of Action and gore read more
