Samurai Jack Returns
People are freaking out and it's glorious.

I'm hyped too!

I'm a bit disappointed that this is only a 10 episode cour, and is the "conclusion" of the series. Given the comments from Genndy about Jack over the years there were a number of options the series could have taken before concluding things (although this route is definitely the most promising).

I hope, at least, we can finally get the answer for why Jack had to be tested like this by fate. His father didn't have to face the same level of adversity in defeating Aku the first time.

I'm wondering who all these assassin women are. I wanna know more about them! Also, I'm so glad that Tartakovsky has no limits so now he can make the show as badass as he wants.

I'm just sad that Mako passed and so we can't have properly original-voice Aku :(

If they can find someone who can mimic his voice I'm seriously gonna pee myself.

They found a guy who does a pretty good impression.

...If it isn't obvious, I've been paying attention to the jack s5 teasers they've been dropping for a looong time.

Greg Baldwin is probably the guy. He's a good Mako imitator, and has assumed Mako's roles that he had outstanding (like Iroh in Avatar: The Last Airbender).

I'm so stoked about this! Samurai Jack is probably my favorite animated series of all time, and this new, final season is looking to be amazing. It was interesting to see Jack cowering in a hiding place like that. Those assassins must be something else. Last time he was that freaked out was when he fought the Minions of Set (who are also my favorite villains in the entire show, by far).

And yeah, the person doing Aku is almost certainly Greg Baldwin. His Iroh voice was quite good. I just hope people aren't too disappointed when he can't do a spot-on impression, because you know some people are just salty like that. The truth is that with the drastic and continuing reduction of cigarette smoking rates, the ability to do a voice like that is only going to get rarer and rarer as time goes on. Even if they found a person whose general vocal qualities were identical to Mako's, chances are they won't have the decades worth of vocal cord damage and irritation that gave his voice that extra-evil quality (and ultimately took his life).

So, now that this is underway, what does everyone think? I personally have been incredibly impressed. It feels so familiar and yet somehow more mature and advanced at the same time, but without being unnecessarily grimdark. The cinematography is exceptional; Jack's run through the hallways in the ancient temple (watch it here) had me damn near on the edge of my seat! One neat thing I've noticed: the martial arts and fight choreography seem much more fluid and realistic; no more mindlessly hitting each other's weapons.

I'm interested to see where his relationship with Ashi goes. (Speaking of that, it sure as hell is bringing out the perverts and memekids in droves; the Samurai Jack subreddit has been utterly subsumed with shitposts. Not at all unexpected, but still disappointing.)

spoilers for the most recent ep below.

Spoiler: show
We've had a lot of plot holes filled over the past couple of weeks, from the identity of the horseman (the spiritual embodiment of honourable death) and Ashi's trust in Jack following her discovery of the truth, but today's ep was magnificent.

Between the truth behind Jack losing his sword (Aku corrupted 3 innocent adorable goats after destroying a time portal Jack actually got inside) and Ashi's showdown with the high priestess defending Jack (he was meditating), the series is starting to wind down but has kept me hooked. The one downside of the episode was the loss of that magnificent beard of Jack's following his triumph over the rage that has tainted his mind, and of course the return of the sword and robe Jack we all know.

Next week shows promise too.

Need to catch up on this. What episode are we on /10?

Raves 04-30-2017 11:19 AM

Great news. I love this TV show. This news did not know her, so I'll look and see it as soon as I find it.
