If you don't already know, I am a fan of anime'. I'm not sure what the appeal of it is for me. Maybe it's because the storylines can consist of dynamic characters set in out of this world scenarios. Either way, I've heard of the above pictured character, Afro Samurai. (Am I the only one who thinks this ish is cool? Just wondering.) Here's the storyline behind it:
Afro Samurai (Academy Award ® nominee Samuel L. Jackson) avenged his father and found a life of peace. But the legendary master is forced back into the game by a beautiful and deadly woman from his past. The sparks of violence dropped along Afro’s bloody path now burn out of control – and nowhere are the flames of hatred more intense than in the eyes of Sio (Lucy Liu: Kill Bill). She won’t quit until Afro is schooled in the brutal lessons he dealt those who stood in his way.
There’s no such thing as final vengeance. The cycle of bloodshed spinning around the Number One Headband must roll on. Featuring the voice of Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and fresh production from The RZA (Wu-Tang Clan), the saga that began in the best-selling anime DVD of 2007 continues in AFRO SAMURAI: RESURRECTION.
Tried to embed the trailer but either it was not available or hidden so well that this non-programmer person would not know where to find it. Anyhoo, if you're interested, the movie (Which I believe is the 2nd one. If not, please correct me.) comes out on DVD next month. Ooh, my b'day month. I'll have to look into that!
