Average Rating

When he was a young boy, Afro witnessed his father be cut down in a duel at the hands of a man known only as Justice. After taking the life of Afro's father, Justice cast aside his Number Two headband and took the Number One to claim its godly powers as his own. Years later, having obtained the Number Two headband which grants him the right to challenge the Number One, Afro moves forward in his hunt for revenge on the man who murdered his father. There is just one thing that stands in his way—everyone else in the world! Though the Number One can only be challenged by the Number Two, the Number Two can be challenged by anyone. As his enemies gather to try and take the title of Number Two, Afro must fight through a myriad of foes and obstacles if he hopes to reach the Number One and claim vengeance once and for all.

Sam Jackson made an anime and starred in it. That right mothafuka! NOW WATCH HIS MOTHAFUKIN ANIMU, YOU MOTHAFUKIN WEEB!


You know how cool Samuel L. Jackson is
Imagine he starred in an anime
Now stop imagining and watch the style on screen


While I did like Samuel L Jackson’s voice acting, the show overall had its ups and downs


Some cool looking animation and solid voice acting make this a pretty good watch.


5 episodes and a movie that gave Samuel L. Jackson an excuse to talk to himself. Dumb fun, worth a watch, but easy to move on from.


The only English dub you need to concern yourself with. It’s fun as hell and is super short. Worthy watch for any fans of good action.


Samuel L. Jackson, a lot of rap and action. It is the perfect combination to have something with style.
