Overview:

"Afro Samurai 2: the Absurdity Continues". Honestly that would have been a better title than the insanely overused title "Resurrection". However, this is the kind of anime where they probably intentionally used a cliche title to pay homage to early, terrible anime like the infamous "Ninja Resurrection". Afro Samurai is NOT an anime that you are supposed to take seriously! It is basically like Kill Bill the anime...or more accurately Kill Bill the 100% anime since Kill Bill Volume 1 was partly done in anime format.

Story and Characters-

Warning: Spoilers!!!

The story begins where the last movie left off. Afro finally got revenge and claimed the read more

When i first saw Afro Samurai back in 2008 I was amazed, to be honest I didn't think a concept like this would work out in the way it did. I mean here you have a black samurai, in an anime, with hip-hop music, unless we're talking Samurai Champloo this shouldn't work. But I really liked Afro Samurai, I thought it was sick and it only increased my respect for Samuel L. Jackson, so when I found out that there was going to be a sequel to the series I was over the moon... However little did I know that this sequel would end up read more

"Watch your damn mouth... cause I'm coming for my father."

This OVA begins some time after the original series of AfroSamurai where Afro is tired, sick of all the fighting knowing that it is an endless cycle. "Kill or be killed, there is no option". We see Afro in a little hut, accompanied only by a Buddha statue and multiple wooden figurines. Peaceful, but lonely.

So, when Jinno appears on a motorcycle and drags Afro by his hair through the tundra, it is appalling. In the previous installment one takes Jinno to be slayed, but he has returned along with is sister Sio who vouches read more

Well, the movie sequel to Last Year's Number One Best Seller Afro Samurai has just finished airing on Spike and these are some of my initial thoughts. Well for one thing this was much better than the TV Show, we actually have some character development for Afro in the movie, in fact much more then we did in the TV Series. There are some plot holes as other people mentioned like Why does Sio even have a grudge against Afro? Well generally I tend to think that maybe she blames Afro for what happened to her brother, but that's generally what I make of it. read more
