This is best suited for people who don't watch anime much, I've gotten quite a few friends into this who normally stay away from anime. Its really easy to jump in anywhere and enjoy. I would call this afro samurai before afro samurai. The stroy isn't that important (until the end) most episodes are stand alone. Some are wacky, which is important to take all the pressure off of the action, which brings me to my next point.
The best action I have EVER seen in an anime! Smooth, well thought out, fast, and very visually appealing. The music is very important to the flow of the anime and shows where it gets a lot of its influence from.
Personal favorite, please watch (best watched in friends!) 9.5/10
