Anyone watching Afro Samurai?
I freakin love it!!
For those that don't know about it, in terms of style it's like Samurai Champloo but the artwork is slightly better, and the voices are in English. The animation brought tears of joy to my eyes, finally a fighting anime, with fast paced action scenes without sacrificing artwork and animation quality, to rival that of Champloo and more recently, Black Lagoon. Your average storyline about revenge, but with seriously kickass action scenes. A break from all the romantic and emotional stuff anime viewers have been exposed to over the last 3 years such as Tsubasa Chronicles and Gundam Seed; this Anime is all out fighting.
I seriously recommend this to anyone in the same boots as me that is sick of all the wubby dubby washed out slapstick romantic comedies like Full Metal Panic.

Yup, Samuel L. Plays "Afro Samurai". Nope, apart from the the voice overs, the animation is all japanese drawn, by Gonzo studios.

Watched the first episode,

Have to say I loved the animation, and the style ain't bad at all, but... something is just not right, this side kick of afro is very annoying... and the story is not really great either =/

I gues this is really a anime to enjoy only for the animation and the gore.

The animation is just sweet, but the voices really irritate me. This anime would be 75% better if it had japanese voices.

finally got down to watch the first 4 episodes
man that guy is one hell of a cold bastard!
the style is kind of unusual to me but it fits the theme perfectly. The only thing thats really annoying to me is their ghetto slang **** talk... they might have overdone it with that a little
Though I'm gonna keep watching it :)
