Afro Samurai: Complete Murder Sessions


Afro? Check.

Badass samurai anime? Check.

Samuel L. Jackson's voice? Hell yeah!

June 22nd will see the release of Afro Samurai on Blu-ray for the first time in a two disc complete collection. This new collection will feature all five episodes of the first season along with a director's cut of the film Afro Samurai: Resurrection that features stuff that you didn't see on Spike TV version.

In a classic tale of justice, revenge and honor Afro Samurai is anything but cliche. A blend of traditional samurai lore, fresh beats and more than it's fair share cool. Uniquely animated and with superb voice acting with the likes or the aforementioned Jackson along with Mark Hamill and Lucy Liu it is going to be hard to find something negative to say about the most badass film samurai this side of Toshiro Mifune.

Sharpen up your funkatana with a slew of extras that were included in the individual initial releases:

  • In the Booth, behind the scenes with the voice talent
  • RZA Music Production Tour, the music of Afro Samurai
  • Afro In-Depth, interview with creator Takeshi Okazaki
  • Afro Samurai: East Meets West, a two part look into all of those involved in the creation of the series
  • The Comic-Con Panel Discussion, and much more!
