Many years have passed since Afro fought to become the number one samurai and succeeded in avenging his father's murder. Living quietly and without violence, Afro maintains a quiet life until his peace is shattered by an old enemy Jinno and a mysterious woman. Together the two of them take the Number One headband from Afro as well as his father's decayed skull. Promising to torture him, the woman challenges Afro to seek out the Number Two Headband. Only then may he challenge her and grant his father peace once more. Who is this woman who wishes so much suffering on Afro, and how many lives must he take before he may once again put violence behind him?

Samurai 7

Samurai 7

In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?

Badass samurai being badasses, cutting up fools and taking on forces larger than them. Both feature badass fights and some real good action and tunes to go along with it. Afro Samurai Resurrection is still a tale of revenge of sorts, threading a path of death and destruction; Samurai 7 is more so good vs evil, more morals and a more wholesome reason to fight in worlds of samurai and modern technology.

In the 6th year of the Kan'ei era, people enjoy a time of peace; skilled swordsmen are revered and respected, and their lives are their own. Amidst the tranquility, Lord Tokugawa Tadanaka decides, for his own amusement, to hold a fighting tournament in which real swords are used - though laws forbid their use. In a match to the death two highly-skilled swordsmen face off: the one-armed Fujiki Gennosuke, and the blind Iraki Seigen. As they take their respective stances, flashbacks paint a picture of the duo’s past and battle wounds; and thus, the real story begins...

These are both well animated entries in the samurai genre that rate poorly.  Mature storylines and elaborate action scenes are sure to please fans of the genre.
