Man, I'm pumped about this new series AFRO SAMURI. Rza, Sam L. Jackson, Anime?! What more could you want?!

I thought the show was awesome. Reports state the Sam jackson is the voice of the main character, but (since typically, Samuri's rarely talk in Anime) he's mostly the voice of his loud mouthed side kick; Ninja Ninja. Ninja Ninja is his right hand dude who just follows him around and serves to (make the show funny and) voice Afro's inner thoughts. What a cool show.

I'm a fan.

Yo, did you notice how they had another episode of it on right after the first one?! I was all pumped because I thought it was gonna be the next episode, but it was a repeat of the first one.

I can already tell that they are going to end every episode with a scene that'll leave you begging for more. Case and point, the last one ended up with some freakish cult leader shooting tons of ammo at Afro, while he plunges down the side of a cliff, fresh after being poisoned by some dart and his "number two" anciet head wrap in danger of being destroyed, which is the whole reason the cult was attacking the ninja to begin with.....so...yeah....pretty much the epitome of a cliff hanger.

Awesome...

You guys can watch it there.
I really liked the show reminds me a lot of Samurai Champloo. The only problem I have with the show is the voice acting, it can get pretty bad at times.

I thought the cheesey voice acting was intentional, no? I mean, come'on it's anime. I don't think I've ever seen a genuine anime that didn't have painfuly corny quotables in it.

Do you watch anime only in English? It's not cheesy if you watch it in Japanese, America messes Animes up most of the time.

America messes a lot of shit up most of the time. Yeah, I've never watched Amine in it's native tongue. I've seen Ninja Scroll in Japanese, but I was reading the sub titles.

Speaking of which, Ninja Scroll (the first one, not the fake sequel) was the shit.
