  • Summary: Long ago, in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape shfiting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil.

But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forward 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!

    This cartoon from Dexter's Labratory creator Genndy Tartakovsky tells the story of a great warrior displaced to the distant future by the evil shape-shifting wizard Aku. The world has become a bleak place under the rule of Aku, segregated into fantastic tribes and ruled by Aku's evil robot warlords. Jack travels this foreign landscape in search of a time portal that can return him to his home time so he can "undo the future that is Aku!".

    Samurai Jack is currently shown around the world on the following networks:

    Cartoon Network in US, Australia, Hong Kong, Latin America (dubbed into Spanish) and Japan (dubbed into Japanese).
    YTV in Canada
    Toonami in UK

    Tartakovsky had described Season 5 as 10 parts of a five-hour movie, and it’s felt instantly.

    Ahora viene mi opinión hacia lo que fue la ultima temporada de Samurai Jack sin spoilers:

    Primero que todo, no es necesario ver las anteriores temporadas para entender esta nueva, al menos que quieran conocer unos episodios importantes.

    Todos sabemos que comenzó con unos primeros episodios brutales, haciendo que tendríamos una serie animada de calidad para adultos sin necesidad de ser comedia o una parodia, tal como estamos acostumbrados, sino que nos dan una serie de supervivencia y acción que haría influenciar a otras series que aprendan a utilizar el genero de entretenimiento de forma memorable, y también motivando a otras series a regresar de la tumba, para que puedan tener el final que tanto querían sus autores y seguidores, tal como lo están haciendo Invasor Zim, La Liga de la Justicia Joven y Hey Arnold (espero que Tartakovsky traiga de nuevo a Titan Simbionico después de como acabo esto).

    Pero, llegamos al episodio 6 hasta el 10, y vemos que la serie esta muy apurada de cerrar con todas sus historias (consecuencia de poco presupuesto que les dio Adult Swin para hacer esta nueva temporada), contando una historia que si bien, pudieron ahorrárselo los productores, que fue el romance de Jack y Ashi. Por que en serio, sin eso, nos hubiese contado más de como se haría el plan del capitulo final, y hasta no me caía tan mal la relación de compañeros de ellos dos. Pero si, entiendo, entiendo que quisieron mostrar otra faceta a Jack, que era el amor, tema que Tartakovsky nunca toco con el Samurai, y así experimentar con esa formula.

    La serie se queda con un broche de oro, catalogándose como muy buena, memorable, un ejemplo a seguir, y una serie recomendable de ver, pero para esta, uno necesita tener paciencia y entender que pudieron cerrarlo de mejor manera, a pesar que fue el final que la serie se merecía y necesitaba tener para acabar con una etapa de nuestras vidas. Incluyendo ese final a lo Gurren Lagann ( serie que es mi favorita de paso).

    Nosotros nunca te olvidaremos, Samurai.

    Three episodes in and this Adaptation has made a bold name for itself now that CN has said the go ahead for [AS] to kick it up a notch GenndyThree episodes in and this Adaptation has made a bold name for itself now that CN has said the go ahead for [AS] to kick it up a notch Genndy Tartakovsky has taken this opportunity along with an extended budget to make this show aesthetically beautiful with clear roots of Asian art style and culture this shows grabs you every time you try to look away and keeps you there until another Toonami commercial.The action is naturally brutal and often tragic even for the opposition while this animation is 65% silent it makes you feel and think.This already is unforgettable and will probably go down as the best adaptation from CN and Furthermore all the stops have been pulled out for every sequence and details of this show. Truly art and a masterpiece 10.9/10 Expand
