About Afro Samurai

Afro Samurai also written AFRO SAMURAI, is a Japanese seinen d__jinshi manga series written and illustrated by manga artist Takashi Okazaki. It was originally serialized irregularly in the avant-garde d__jinshi manga magazine Nou Nou Hau from September 1999 to May 2000. Inspired by Takashi Okazaki's love of soul and hip hop music and American media, Afro Samurai follows the life of Afro Samurai who witnessed his father (owner of the No. 1 headband) being killed by the hands of a gunslinger named Justice (owner of the No. 2 headband) while he was a child. As an adult, Afro sets off to avenge his father's death and kill Justice. The Afro Samurai d__jinshi was adapted into a 5-episode anime TV series by studio Gonzo in 2007.
