The movie begins with a flashback of young Afro watching his father slayed for his No. 1 headband. He who dons the No. 1 headband is the ultimate warrior and can only be challenged by the owner of the No. 2 headband. Anyone and everyone will challenge No. 2 for his coveted headband. The movie follows Afro in a futuristic feudal Japan as he defends his No. 2 headband against many able foes, including his childhood friend who is also hell-bent on revenge.

It took me many, many tries to actually sit and watch this movie because of the art style. The chiseled faces and read more

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.
The Art: Dark and Bloody would be strong ways to describe the movie with animation quality being second to none.
The Sound: Nailed in every facet down to the slashing of body parts or the lines delivered by the cast in the english dubbing. No corners were cut when it came to this area as it offers some of the best sounding and acted works in a long time.

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

The Afro Samurai Movie is one of those films that you watch not for the plot, but rather for the interesting and unique characters that surround the story.

However, one minor yet distinguishing detail that does set this film apart is its depiction of hierarchy among samurai through characters' struggle to obtain headbands. This form of ladder ranking not only drives forward the plot but also adds a sort of distinctiveness to what would have been a very read more

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...
so you might be wondering why the low score well as I mentioned before I did not ha†e this anime but I didn't like it either one of the main problems with this is that Afro our main protagonist really doesn't face any real treat or any good enemies so there is never any tension to build on or to get exited for, there is this one scene where there is read more

If you took Quentin Tarantino, feudal Japan, disco music, testosterone, sex, and Samuel Jackson's voice, put all of that in a blender, then you would create the anime Afro Samurai. Go to a doctor if you can't enjoy seeing the coolest samurai ever, chop through a dozen guys like butter.
