Manga Mavericks @ Movies #11: “Samurai Jack”


Let’s travel back, back to a blast from the past – Samurai Jack!

After over a decade the modern masterpiece returned to the airwaves to conclude the samurai’s long journey, and we recorded about it…five months ago. Well, the wait time for this podcast is paltry in comparison to how long we waited for that final season, right? We start off the show discussing the recent theatrical screening of the first three episodes of Samurai Jack and how impressively the show holds up sixteen years later. Then our friend Ethan joins us to discuss season five in-depth, from what we really loved about it to the few things we didn’t care for. That’s right – we’re covering Jack‘s beginning and it’s end in the same podcast! Watch out!
