Afro Samurai has assumed the mantle of Number 2, seeking vengeance against Number1, a gunman who killed his father years ago. But assassins lurk at every corner, seeking to rob Afro Samurai of the title of Number 2. Can Afro survive long enough to exact his revenge? (Source: Amazon)

Afro Samurai follows the lone protagonist Afro in his journey to avenge his father and claim the title of the strongest warrior. Along the way, we discover the sacrifices he has made and how far his revenge will take him. The setup and delivery is very basic, with Afro cutting down any and all who stand in his way, in the goriest and most graphic way possible. In terms of story and characters, there isn't anything particularly special, however, the delivery makes up for this, presenting amazing scenes which keep you hooked.Whilst many people have seen the anime, very few have read this manga adaption, read more

Very action-packed, violent manga series that involve apathetic protagonists. Revenge is a theme in both of these, with a ton of sword fights and badassery to go around.
