The official website for Spike TV’s Afro Samurai, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, has launched with the new trailer, which was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con.
The five episode series is the tale of a black samurai in futuristic, yet feudal Japan who is on a mission to avenge the wrongful death of his father. “Afro” is a warrior who travels a solitary path encountering a myriad of enemies, friends and challenges beyond imagination.
The series, produced in Japanese animation, blends samurai style with hip-hop, creating a kind of action that American audiences have never seen before.
Afro Samurai is a creative collaboration between Jackson, Takashi Okazaki and Japanese animation company Gonzo, a division of GDH, who is also acting as series producer. The concept of Afro Samurai was created by graphic designer, illustrator and artist Takashi “Bob” Okazaki (Spider-Man, Blade: Trinity).
