A rather decent show by Genndy Tartakovsky, which is played on Cartoon Network. It's about a samurai called Jack (called so by a group of ghetto-speaking thugs in the second episode), and how he is ripped into the future where the almighty being Aku (japanese literal meaning for "evil") rules all, including various locations in the heavens.

Yes, it is a type of rip on anime, and there was even a character on an episode that looked like Jigen from Lupin III. But with its cinematic soundtrack & other interesting things, you really could do worse. In fact, the purpose of this show is NOT to rip on anime! It's called APPRECIATION OF CULTURES! Unfortunately, people just don't get it. -_-'
"Aku is funny. I thought the funniest episode of the show was when he was trying to brainwash the children into disliking Jack, by reading them a bunch of fractured fairytales."

An awesome show originally released by Cartoon Network, but later released by the CN late night channel Adult Swim, it is about the young samurai, Jack and his quest of defeating the Evil Aku (the main antagonist) , (Spoilers!!) in the first episode he comes close to defeating Aku, but before he could he make the final blow Aku sent him into the future, where he terrorized the world and built robot armies to carry out his will. unlike most show the main bad guy does not have a one sided personality of straight up evil, as Aku is humorous as well. Samurai jack has been around since 2001, but just had it series finale this year (2017) because from 2005 to 2016 it was canceled by Cartoon Network and was finally picked up by adult swim somewhere between 2014 and 2017 where they made the show more for the adult age group. If you haven't seen Samurai Jack yet, I suggest you do
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.

A complete an utter newbie from Gametalk who always posts the exact same posts. Not a real guy, just a lame cloning attempt at Auron Leon Heart, and even worse than him.
