Type: Mace “Motherfukin'” Windu, Resurrection
Synopsis: After becoming the baddest man on the planet, the Afro Samurai decides to take some down time by wallowing in his own sadness. Then his best friend, robot Teddy Bear man, sucker-punches him and steals his favorite headband. This is all according to the plan of his younger sister, Lucy Liu, who also plans on reviving Afro’s dad just to mess with him. It’s hard out there for an Afro Samurai.
Pros: If you liked Afro Samurai, you’ll love Afro Samurai: Resurrection. The action, animation, and soundtrack remain excellent. If someone were to rank the top anime in the “stylized action” sub-genre, Afro Samurai would be right up there with stuff like Gurren Lagann and Cowboy Bebop. You will never feel bored watching this.
Cons: If you didn’t like Afro Samurai, you’re not ganna love Afro Samurai: Resurrection. Once again, the actual story in the anime is it’s weakest link. You won’t really care about the story or it’s characters, you just want to see Afro fight dudes. The absence of Ninja Ninja also hurt the film, as he was the main source of comic relief.
Watch it?: Did I mention this was the fist anime to ever win an Emmy?
