  • No mention of his african origins. Only mention of him is that he is "black" which leades to the exclusion of africans and the innclusion of black americans. Smh

  • Does anyone have the name of the theme or music at the end of the last episode of yasuke? At the moment when "maru" appears on the screen, (27:50 on netflix). Thank you !

  • The anime was honestly mid Yasuke was overly nice for no reason and the girl was absolute cringe every time she got angry or sucked him off with her nice nature. They should’ve not made him help them by choice and have a more interesting character if he’s gonna be edgy from battle.

  • Whilst Yasuke is better drawn than alot of previous black guys (looking at you Naruto)I still have one issue with his design. The palms of his hands are brown. That's wierd as I as a black guy have white palms as does every other black guy I now. Alot of anime does this.

    andre robinsonandre robinsonPřed 11 dny
  • Will Yasuke get to Samurai Champloo and Afro Samurai status? I will say, though, being 3 episodes in, the music is more forgettable than in the other two I mentioned. Yet I have faith in Flying Lotus' skills as a producer.

  • "I would love for people to just see Yasuke as another Samurai." ....... Finn Jones cast as Iron Fist...."...."That's wah-scist, that role could have gone to an Asian, do better...wah wah." I guess it is only cultural appropriation when Europeans do it. That double standards role on.

  • A child wrote a story about robots and samurais and someone told the child they would animate it because the samurai is black. Nevermind the plot is non existent, there was a black man with a sword fighting robots in Japan and they can claim its paying homage to a black man who went to Japan one time. Also, toss in lots of blue all over the screen and we will call it magic. Now we explained the robots away! Magic!

  • Flying lotus always such an incredible creative force. The more of his work I see the more it leaves an imprint on me; uniquely, he has the effect of showing how to best do your own thing, instead of just being someone to imitate. He’s a bit sonically in his own territory so to emulate him that way would be in bad taste because of that but still the imprint is there in he has a way of doing his thing, that helps me do “my” thing better. Not sure exactly how that works, but I’m aware it’s there lol Great addition to the new global and American canons of creative genius! This project all the more exciting to hear his contributions!

  • Its fairly well animated, but its all over the road story wise. UGH. Also the 3D mixed with 2D looks like shit. Youre supposed to use that shit sparingly. You took a real life factoid and added all kinds of shit that doesnt fit in that time period or setting. Its so contrived i can practically hear the executive producers in their pitch meeting, checking off their boxes.

  • They done fked it up. This was a pile of garbage with all the robots and demons, and magic and BS! Why couldnt they just tell the story as much as is known and add some fictional aspects? Why did it have to be so fantastical and stupid? An insult to those of us that know of this historical figure and a a disservice to those that dont. We want these hidden historical gems to be told but not...grossly distorted. Was really looking forward to this and after the first episode I'm done.

  • OK the only issue I had with this show was the voice acting of the Keith Stanfield, I think it could’ve been better or they could’ve use someone else. I loved the music and the art except for His hands. they could’ve done a better job with the artwork of his hands. every time I sawHis hands I thought of Mr. Poe Poe from dragon ball Z. Other than that it was a good show.
