Afro Samurai

BASED ON 5 OF 5 EPS WATCHED
16 JUN
2011

One of the best animes for getting new people into anime. It's overly stylized visual aspect tends to capture the attention of people normally pushed away from anime, the Samul l Jackson english dub also gives newbies a familiar voice to grab onto and feel more comfortable, and finally the western influenced music (mostly rap, i think da rizza or however you spell that, did the soundtrack) connects everything while maintaining solid background noise.

The story is fairly weak, but the animation and sound/music are enough to make up for it. Characters aren't horrible and ninja ninja is memorable (great name). Overall, it is not something to pass up.
