Gino = Darth Vader. I loved this episode. I can't decide between the last episode and this one which is my favorite so far. Still one more left!

It seems to me that Gino was over-reacting.

Eh. Good episode actually.


The master's(previous number 2) voice actor is voiced by the same guy who plays Kratos in the God of War series. That made me laugh.

Amazing how this series is able to setup a decent plot in the space of 1 episode :O

So the unraveling of the "lost everything because the past caught up" samurai, but still nicely delivered. Anyone else starting to think Ninja Ninja is some kind of mental projection?

The guy didn't stop crying ever since, Talk about dehydration. Lol
I'm starting to think that Ninja Ninja is his imaginary friend.

Isn't it obvious that he's Afro's consciousness.....?

LOL, now, all of you who were babbling something about cliches (about revenge), I bet feel really stupid! Now you see it's better to be quiet and not to show whole world just how ignorant you are! Great episode, now all makes sense, even plot can't be criticized! I will say no more, except that I'm giving it a 10 and that I cant wait to see final episode!

I remember this being my favorite episode/fight in Afro Samurai. Especially like the track that plays when Gino and Afro's duel starts. Man, some of this gore is seriously too over the top for me now. When I first watched this, it was like "DAMN AWESOME!" but now it's just more sickening than anything. But I guess that goes to show how brutal the path of the headband owners is. I might drop my rewatch here, I can't really remember the final battle being anything better than this.

Cool backstory.
I'm amazed Gino managed to survive even for that long, I guess his "revenge" made that possible.

Not sure why you had to spoiler tag that as that was clearly shown in the episode.
But yeah Gino is being way to dramatic.

I like how they transition to flashback then back tot he present. Sometimes it's too much but some other time, it's seamless.

The backstory itself was better than expected. Afro's hatred is really affecting him though. Even when he's a teenager, he already looked like a middle-aged man.
Seems like the nigga black ninja is nothing but Afro's imaginary friend...
OwO

It seems that Ninja Ninja is his imaginary friend. The backstory was brutal. I think that it was much better than the second episode. Let's see what happens in the next episode.
Life has no meaning.
