5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw dropping awesome anime - will blow you away, 15 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Afro Samurai - Bravo Numbered Limited Edition (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
Ill be honest, my idea of good anime tends to be restricted to the classic films and the odd Miyazaki - so when I caught sight of this on late night Bravo I was completely mesmerised. I dont know how to convey to you the sheer quality of this animation, you cant take your eyes off the screen for a second in case you miss something sensational. The storyline is simple and direct, but thats the point - this is a classic samurai revenge story bought fiercely alive by an awesome voice cast (Samual L Jackson is excellent, Ron Perlman ie Hellboy is also perfectly cast), unbelievably superior animation and a cutting edge soundtrack by one of the most talented members of the Wu tang Clan, RZA. The melding of classic samurai, futureshock technology and moderm/eerie music is spot on. My only complaint is that the series is quite short, however having wasted several hours on the internet trying to find out exactly what I had witnessed I can now confirm that this series was big in the US and has spawned toys, games, t-shirts, books and potentially more episodes....

This genuinely is top quality genre busting stuff. Enjoy.
