Dieser Manga war ziemlich dämlich. Die Geschichte von Afro als Kind und junger Mann war weit besser als der Rest, da es ihn als eine echte Person darstellt und nicht diese flache Mordmaschine die er sonst ist.

I wasn't very impressed with the ending to this duology. I much prefer vol:1. The story line made more sense. 2.5 stars.

Quite the same experience as the first one, though there were some differences.

Where the first volume was way too dark to make any sense of anything, I felt this problem was somewhat fixed here. That alone was a huge plus. The fights also seemed, at least on some points, more clear and more movie like and alive. Especially the "main" fight of the book with the Teddybear depicted in the cover looked great.

But where the fighting got more clear, the story did not. Before this the story had been str

I love the melodramatic saga that is Afro Samurai's life. The movies are better than the books simply for the gorgeously bloody animation. The plot does go a little over-the-top, but Samuel L. Jackson wouldn't be associated with anything less!
