I'll first start by pointing out that the main character is a african/american which is very rare in anime and to have Samuel L. Jackson is one of the voice actors makes it soooooooooo awesome.
The story runs pretty fast since there is only five episodes, but i still feel as if parts of the story was pointless but none the less i enjoyed it.
The animation had its weird non-typical anime artstyle however this is not a bad thing but made Afro Samurai different.
I loved the characters... well at least the main ones since every else dies by the end of the episode. Afro talked rarely and when he did he was a badass! And he has another guy that followed him and im not sure but im pretty sure he is meant to be a figment of his imagation and is there for comic relief.
As a fellow black man, i highly recommend this anime for all you black loving peps out there ;)
