Afro Samurai trailer

I've been hearing about this anime called Afro Samurai for years. It originally started out as a manga, and then somehow Gonzo and Samuel L. Jackson got interested in turning it into an anime and live action movie.

The anime is finally coming to frutation this fall on Spike TV. Here's the trailer. The character designs look kind of cool. It seems almost like a more violent version of Samurai Champloo.

Yeah I've been hearing about it too. I can't wait for it to finally air this fall on Spike. For over $1 million dollars an episode you know it's going to be good. I've posted this on my blog too. Cool blog by the way.

1 million? It's a heck of a lot of money any way you look at it. But yeah, I definitely think the show will be a success for Spike. I'm sure a host of new viewers from Adult Swim/Toonami will make their way over there at the very least. I know I will. ;)

And the movie ought to be a riot! I can't wait to see Samuel L. sporting that mondo-huge afro on the big screen. :D

Thanks for the comment and compliment. And nice blog. Doesn't Youtube rock?
