    I'm looking to get into anime...And not the typical nerdy anime with stupid romance subplots or anything like that. Dark, gritty, violent, Kill Bill style anime.

    Yeah it's ace. Only 5 episodes too, so it might be a nice short start for someone just starting anime. I think they're on iTunes if you wanna watch them.

    Alright then, I'll check it out!

    And I was only kidding about the nerdy anime bit. I just won't ever watch something like DBZ. How that has such a huge fan base of people beyond the age of 13 I will never know.

    Afro Samurai > You

    But really, one of the best anime I've ever seen. Style pours out of it like blood pours out of an enemy of Afro.
    And the music... Especially when Afro's Father fights Justice (Not a spoiler, happens in the first 10 minutes of the first episode).

    Actually, Matt, they have released a second season of Afro Samurai. I saw a copy at my local JB Hi-Fi.

    Afro Samurai: Resurrection, or something.

    Still, much ass is kicked. Plus, music by The RZA, just like Kill Bill.

    I've been meaning to check out the movie for some time. Saw a trailer of it recently, and the music was amazing but that isn't surprising.

    Well, it's not THAT expensive. But good point.

    PS - Blair, that is superb news! I did not know that.

    This thread is so kickass it brought back Blair.

    If you enjoy kickass anime, I also suggest checking out Sword of the Stranger. Its a feature film that has a lot of people getting cut apart.

    sword of the stranger > afro samurai
    should check out ninja scroll too since afro rips off the first scene from ninja scroll. also, it's 100 times better.

    Although, on the subject of Samurai, we should all be aware that the greatest of all is...

    Samurai Jack!

    Sometimes I do Aku impersonations to keep my friends amused, and to scare off strangers.
