What you haven't heard of Afro Samurai? Well let me introduce you to the coolest black male to carry a blade since... er Blade xD

Here's what wikipedia says about Afro Samurai

Afro Samurai (????????) is a Japanese d?jinshi manga series, created by Takashi Okazaki, originally featured in the NOU NOU HAU [1] d?jin magazine. It was adapted into an 5-episode anime television series, produced by Japanese animation studio GONZO, and aired January 4, 2007 on Spike TV at 11pm EST, but premiered online on December 31, 2006.
The anime series features noted American actor Samuel L. Jackson as the voice of the titular character, as well as one of the co-producers, and also features Ron Perlman and Kelly Hu as character voices. Wu-Tang Clan member RZA produced the original musical score,[2] which is due to be released on compact disc by Koch Records on January 16, 2007 in both explicit and edited versions. The series has been slated for five episodes and is set to air in the United States on Spike TV and Japan on Fuji Television. The series has also been licensed for North American distribution by Funimation, whose first DVD release is planned for early 2007. In August 2005, Japan-based game developers Namco announced they would be releasing Afro Samurai-related video games in both Japan and America.[3]
The cost of each episode is estimated at one million dollars[4], which is a record for GONZO.

Description:


taken from AniDB


The tale of Afro Samurai is one of bloody hardship and pain. Along his solitary path of revenge for his murdered father, he sheds no tears and knows no love. Forever chased by powerful enemies in a lawless technology-speckled dystopia, he evades bullets and blade to reach his final prey: a man who will not die. But Afro will reach his quarry - even if it means painting a road of blood and brains from here to the bitter inevitable end.
