Afro Samurai

Story

The story here is by no means fantastic. Actually if you properly thought about it it is actually pretty bad. It is meerly there to act as a vehicle driving the protaganist into more situations where he can whoop some ass. 

 

Animation

By far and away the best part of this show. It is excellent to look at. The fight scenes keep you entralled enough not to notice how bad everything else is. 

 

Sound

There is a surprising cast in this show, but it does not stop the voices only being O.K., or does it make up for the boring music used.

 

Characters

All very shallow, to the point of being annoying. There is very little development. Growth in the characters is one thing that makes me enjoy some anime a lot. This does not have that. 

 

Overall

Nice to look at, very little substance. I would recommend this as a guilty-pleasure type anime. Watch if you enjoy Jean-Claude Van Damme films, its pretty similar. You brain need not be engaged. 

5/10 story
9/10 animation
6.5/10 sound
4/10 characters
6.1/10 overall
