Once and Future Samurai Jack

Gotta get back, back to the past, Samurai Jack
(Jack Jack Jack)

Samurai Jack is back! (Well almost.)

“Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!”

I can’t recommend more highly this American-created animation for lovers of animation, Japanese film, mythology or fantasy.

    Oh, how good to read that Samurai Jack is coming back with 10 new episodes! Even if it is “darker and way more epic” (to quote James Whitbrook over on io9).

    Of course, I find it impossible not to ‘hear’ the opening monologue in the voice of Mako Iwamatsu, who died in 2006. So, getting a new Aku voice actor is going to be key to the reboot’s success, I think.
