Afro Samurai's violent tale of revenge fuses hip-hop and contemporary culture with exaggerated Feudal-period action.

Afro Samurai started out as a manga series written by Takashi Okazaki and was published in Nou Nou Hau due to its popularity it was soon adapted into an Anime miniseries Directed by Fuminori KiZaki and was produced by Japanese Animation Studio. The series ran for 5 episodes. From there it grew a cult following and found its way onto the net and then on to Spike TV in January of 2007 and from there went to be shown in the UK and all around the world. Perhaps most notable was some of the voice actors that where attached to this project including Samuel Jackson who play two characters and also Kelly Hu. Also sporting a very strong hip hop sound track. Throughout 2007 we saw numerous DVDs for the title. Latest’s new is that Namco will be starting work on a Afro Samurai game.


The Anime has a very funky future feel to it and follows the story of a samurai called Afro, Who is seeking vengeance  for his father’s death, Killed by a Gunman who goes by the name of Justice. The world seems to have a very strange system, Believing that the ruler of the world is the person who is number one and to become number one you must beat the current number two to gain the right to challenge.

Now an adult and the current number two Afro is plagued by members of the mysterious empty seven clan who wish to take his number two title as he travels to face his father’s killer. The anime shows Afro’s life as he went from a boy to the warrior he is now
