Samuel Jackson IS Afro Samurai!
The five episode series is the tale of a black samurai in futuristic, yet feudal Japan who is on a mission to avenge the wrongful death of his father. "Afro" is a warrior who travels a solitary path encountering a myriad of enemies, friends and challenges beyond imagination.
The series, produced in Japanese animation, blends samurai style with hip-hop, creating a kind of action that American audiences have never seen before.
Afro Samurai is a creative collaboration between Jackson, Takashi Okazaki and Japanese animation company Gonzo.
It's supposed to show up in NA on Spike TV. Has anyone seen anything about it yet? I'll keep my eye out for it.
