Stylish animation can't mask extreme violence and language.

Annoyance at how anime is generally treated.

I agree that this particular anime is NOT for young children but i have a beef with people who think that anime which isn't watered down bullspit is horrible. My Sis-in-law was shocked when she saw that i had a great collection of japanese media. She said how can i allow Bellatrix and Vash (Yes my fangirlism is that bad. I named My Daughter Bellatrix after the Harry Potter charter and My son after Vash the Stampede) to see such filth. She, like most people, believe that unless its shown on 4kids or on Cartoon Network's morning block it is pornographic and violent. I highly reccomend parents screen such shows before d***ing them.

fans of revenge stories would love this, I guarantee it :-)

this is an awesome mini series and a great kill bill spin off, all the episodes have nonstop action and extreme gore, and the feature film afro samurai: resurrection is 10 times as awesome, and Afro's sidekick ninja ninja always provides the funny parts in both the mini series and the film

Violent but highly entertaining animation!

First thing you should know: This is very violent and bloody with beheadings, guns, and the like. Language is frequent and strong (f-ck, sh-t, motherf-cker) etc, mainly by the hilarious 'ninja ninja'. Funny and entertaining as this show is, it's not one for kids. Okay for teens if they are mature enough. I, being only 11, did like this one though.

Dark and edgy anime series loaded with graphic violence and profanity.

Afro Samurai is truly one of a kind with it's interesting characters with a flamboyant "swag" attitude, including Afro, whom is a professional killer highly proficient with a samurai sword and quite calm/collected throughout. After the unfortunate death of his father right before his eyes as a child, he swore an oath to bring the killer to justice (which the antagonist's name is Justice) with the iron will of revenge. Even though this is an animated series, it's definitely not for children or young teens, due to the pervasive amount of graphic bloody violence (people are explicitly beheaded, dismembered, sliced in half, torn apart, beaten to death). Language is strong and frequent - uses of f**k, motherf**ker, c**ksucker, sh*t, b*tch, and other crude name-calling. There's a couple graphic sex scenes between characters (breasts, buttocks, thrusting) is shown. Multiple characters are seen smoking and drinking in most scenes, even when fight scenes occur. Mature older teens whom are very familiar and used to this sort of violent and crude content should be fine with it.

Violent but good Anime

This is one of the greatest anime TV shows but it is not recommend for anyone under 15. The Violence is Strong there are beheadings, stabbings, shootings and beatings. The Sex is strong in one episode the main character has sex with the female lead her breasts are shown. The language is strong with frequent usings of the "F word" and the 'S word". In every episode the main character smokes majiuana.
