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.
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...
