Samuel Jackson: Badass Samurai


Recommended Posts

I was amazed at the concept, until I read "voice actor", after all, Sammy is over 50, AND he has had a *ahem* colourful life with plenty of interesting diversions. Not too convincing if he had to start prancing around like a ninja ...

Brad Pitt...The Mexican

 

Tom Cruise...The Last Samurai

 

Samuel L. Jackson...Afro Samurai...

 

 

 

I'm confused...

I had thought that some of nature's journeymen had made men and not made them well, for they imitated humanity so abominably. - Book of Counted Sorrows

 

'Cause I won't know the man that kills me

and I don't know these men I kill

but we all wind up on the same side

'cause ain't none of us doin' god's will.

I like how we americans screw with everything... we have a white guy as a mexican, another white guy as a Japanese only tradition, and a black guy as a freaking Samurai! it couldn't get any better unless I learned that Voltron was actually the Power Ranger's Megazord in disguise!

In this case it's a Japanese dude behind the idea. So I guess it's Japanese encouraging Americans to screw them.

I would stay away from games based on mangas or anime ...

Why?

Im going to guess Chapelle's Show, because it sounds like something Dave Chapelle would say, but I have no idea.

 

 

Also, according to that article, Gonzo is in charge of the anime. This is bad news. Gonzo inherently f***s any projects with which it is related. Take, for example, what it did with Speed Grapher.

 

Maybe Fuji will be able to rein them in, but we'll see.

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

Its based on a manga, of course mangas are just wacky.

Generally the games suck but there are some gold Nuggets in there, DBZ Bukdokai did some stuff that's fairly new. That's the only one I can come up with, but several Japanese games have anime styled cutscenes in them (LUNAR!). I wanna see a Battle Angel Alita anime.

I agree, I think Samuel L. playing a Samurai sounds cool. Who care if it isn

Life is like a clam. Years of filtering crap then some bastard cracks you open and scrapes you into its damned mouth, end of story.

Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer, go!

 

Speed Grapher is entirely different from Speed Racer.

There are two OVA's: Rusted Angel and Tears of an Angel. I'm waiting for them to publish the next part of Lost Order.

James Cameron is also doing a cinematic adaptation. I think BAA can be considered an inspiration for his Dark Angel series, to a degree.

 

Last Order is also not in the same ballpark as the original BAA, imo.

Regardless of how much you like/dislike Japanese-styled comics, BAA/Gunnm is a masterpiece of cyberpunk storytelling, and should not be missed if you're at all interested in a good story.
