Afro Samurai: Resurrection DVD (Director's Cut)
He's a bad dude, with a bad 'fro, and some baaaad fighting skills. He's Afro-Samurai.
The latest in the Afro Samurai series brings back the nappy-headed warrior in Afro Samurai: Resurrection. With the voice talents of Samuel L. Jackson, Lucy Liu, and Mark Hamill (yes everyone, Luke Skywalker), this Anime film is as intense as the afro on the main character’s head. In this film, Afro Samurai is brought out of a life of peace when he is suddenly taunted by Sio, a deadly woman seeking revenge on him. She is passionate about torturing Afro for things he has done in the past. But that won’t be easy since Afro Samurai doesn’t go down easy. Funimation has put together a sweet Director's Cut DVD of this film. It comes with the film, a booklet with an intro written by RZA from Wu-Tang Clan , and lots of extra bonus features. Overall, when it comes to Anime DVD’s, this one’s got the goods.
