I never finished this series, saw maybe 1.5 seasons. Is there ever any real plot or can I jump in with the adult reboot/relaunch? Is Jack still trying to go back to the past, or does he get there at the end of season 2 and have new plots in seasons 3 and 4?

I always wondered and it wasn't made super clear, if Jack was bouncing around timelines, being at a different time in various episodes...but now that I'm older I realize the world he's in is probably just really diverse. Jungle towns, future towns, etc.

Really? It seemed obvious to me that Aku sent him to the far, far, far, far future where there's all manner of bizarre realms and regions.

Though, the insanely diverse settings for each episode would be better explained if it was explained that some of the episodes took place on different planets, imo.

Like episode 1 with all the dog miners or whatever, that would be dog planet. Then there could be Victorian England planet, old school mobster planet, and so on.

But according to Wiki, all of this takes place on Earth and the strange and colorful settings are just different regions of the planet. Maybe Aku made the world a little bigger?

i have always liked how they made earth diverse instead of taking scenes to different planets with completely homogeneous scenery. it's kind of dumb how shows, movies and games do shit like "this or that planet is a FOORESTT PLANET, it's just FOOREESTS ALL THE WAY AROUND" i'm not saying it's dumb because it's not realistic i'm saying it's dumb because it's boring. just think how fucking diverse real earth is and has always been.

(namek is the WORST offender, i mean it's just water with some rocks coming out of it and a few houses scattered around.)

in samurai jack it's a real neat setting because the antagonist has been present throughout history, through humanity's first contact with aliens and dogs developing intelligence and all the other crazy shit. it really feels like a world instead of just a backdrop for awesome action

Maybe Jack killed Aku which is why he no longer has his sword... And why he is trapped in the future.

As a way to explain why Aku is absent due to his VA dying, of course.

they could use the guy they used to replace Iroh in avatar, but it's really obvious that it isn't him. it's almost jarring every time the new voice actor speaks, even though you can clearly tell he's trying to sound like Iroh/Aku. Kinda funny how they chose his character's niece in avatar to be the new villain in Samura Jack. I wonder if that was intentional, they've exported character personalities before. They use talking dog in samurai jack from ppg, and avatar's Varrick is literally just his actor's previous character Mentok from Birdman minus the powers.

I'm fucking stoked for a number of reasons:

-Art and animation styles kept true to original series, but are much crisper

-Jack's guilt from his complacence is getting the better of his psyche and there's a greater emphasis on what he has to lose if he doesn't get his ass back in gear.

-Jack has an enemy besides Aku that has a backstory and, unlike the vast majority of Jack's past foes, is a living, breathing soul(s) in the Daughters of Aku (maybe the main one becomes a love interest later on?)

-They didn't give Aku away up front and are making the viewer wonder what has changed about him (besides his VA).

-The first assassin Jack fights is creative and fun. Sets a good precedent for things to come. Neat that Jack collects his weapon and will be using it in the next ep

-Jack with guns, blood, and motorcycles.

-Jack having to fight his way back to his sword.

9.5/10 reintro for me. Not gonna miss an ep of this new season.

Bump, Just saw the new episode, I enjoyed it, can't wait for next episode. HOWEVER, When the robot swordsman assassin called up aku, the person on the other line sounded like the director literally didn't even try to get anybody who sounded close to the original actor. If that was aku, he sounded like a withered grandpa, not an ageless evil entity.

I have a feeling that the dark samurai horseman has something to do with how jack lost his sword, the only hints I have to go by are how the horseman has a green aura and during the micro-flashback in which jack loses his sword the place is predominantly green colored so this is just mindless speculation.

or maybe he dropped the sword into a magical energy source that was tainted by aku, and the sword personified into an evil opponent of jack, and since his sword was forged by the gods and is basically unbeatable, he doesnt currently have a strong enough weapon to counter the sword-man. so he always hides from it. nigga needs some magic runes laddie

I had considered this was well, the reason Jack is so afraid of the visage of a mounted samurai (which visually has themes of typical ancient feudal samurai attire) could be what jack fears he himself will become in his pursuit to undo the past, possibly part of a realization that he could choose to ignore the suffering around him and become a ruthless warlord killer in order to finally take down Aku and un-make all of the existing suffering as a result but as a consequence losing himself and his principles.

I really just hope that they end this daughters of aku arc in the second episode. The show originally didn't have any story arcs that spanned multiple episodes, at least that I can remember. and honestly I think the daughters of aku are boring uninspired villians. what I want to see is Samurai jack back to what it originally was with giving the viewer a new experience with new scenery, locations, characters, and obstacles to overcome with every episode. with the exception of a few reoccurring characters like the scotsman.

Doubtful. I bet they're going to give some other excuse as to why Aku doesn't sound exactly the same, like "Oh, Aku spent so much time stretching his powers in order to fight jack over the years that he's become slightly weakened", or some nonsense. from what I heard on the phonecall by robotron, Aku sounded haggard and winded, unlike how an ageless evil should sound.

Fuck, that villain was great. I like the new darker direction, I like the switch up of an actual arc with the daughters but I was worried it would loose it's more over the top cartoon element. This guy made it feel like classic Jack. The fight itself was also great.

I'm all for it. It's the last season of the show, they want to do something bigger with it. This is probably a dated reference but this whole situation sort of reminds me of the show "Reboot". It was a lighthearted show with different situations every episode, then "shit get's real". I'm sure a good amount of anime's are like that too.

Back in the original series it was shown in many episodes that there were MANY ways for jack to get back to the past but every time he got close to one, Aku popped up and thwarted him or some other circumstance prevented Jack fro making it back to the past.

when were you guys expecting an impalement? when he was in the clearing with his spear? or when he had the broken axe? either way even though i knew jack was gonna kill somebody i was quite shocked it happened the way it did. pretty fucking brilliant escape though. as he was realizing what he did i was yelling at the tv "GET YOUR ROBOT TUNING KNIFE DUDE!" little did i know he was way ahead of me

im hoping some wise old wizard friend finds jack and heals the wounds in his body and mind.

also was pretty surprised to see his subconscious telling him he should just kill himself lol. and it is interesting that aku is struggling with their dance psychologically as well.

near the end when he had the axe because the axe had a spike on the end using the multi-pronged spear would have been too grisly all at once for a show like samurai jack. technically though he had the tuning fork knife taken from him. so he didn't have that option until after he killed one of the daughters and then realized that specific daughter was the one holding the knife.

Seppuku/ Harakiri. That's something I always loved about the show. The Samurai character wasn't just an excuse to have a dude with a sword, they actually get into a bunch of samurai themes. Same with this episode, just a darker subject.

Jack sustained massive wounds in this last episode. It was coupled with the white wolf fighting the lions, the wolf is shown in a similar circumstance as Jack., and it got me wondering...have we ever seen Jack get critically wounded before? I mean superficial scrapes and cuts, I know those happened. But have we ever seen Jack get straight up...stabbed? Or slashed deeply? I don't think we have. If I'm wrong, correct me please, thankyou. I think Jack is a deeper metaphor in this series. Now especially. Tartakovsky was supposed to have been making a Jack movie right? It almost feels like THIS is what that movie was supposed to be. Like, this is his dream realized...but not quite...at least that's the sense I'm getting...I feel like he's gone to great lengths to make this particular "season" (I think it was supposed to be the movie) mean something more, possibly on a deeply personal level to Tartakovsky.

In one of the made-for-tv movies produced after the show ended, they reveal that Jack's sword is blessed by the gods and imbued with the spirit of his dad, the first person to make a solid attempt at killing/banishing Aku. At first it was a normal sword, but the gods (Odin, Ra, and Vishnu) blessed his sword before the final battle and Jack's ancestor managed to seal away Aku as the ugly tree seen at the beginning of episode 1.
This is why Jack's sword was always able to slice through anything evil.

So I could be wrong but I think his closest call/ most desperate situation was the three Anubis type monsters he fought. This fight reminded me a lot of that except on crack.

I thought the animation took a downturn. Most of it is very good, but there's a few parts where the CG is apparent, a lot of the motorcycle parts for example. And the wolf walking was clearly CG puppetry and didn't look good. There's a few things like that I've noticed and it's saddening to see this is the norm for american animation now. Even a show like Jack is not immune.

I second this. The animation processes they're using nowadays is a massive time saver and there are significantly fewer (if any) errors. if they had to use traditional animation methods like the OG series, this last season would never have been made.

On another topic I've come to the decision that I think the green mounted samurai is just Jack's interpretation of the grim reaper, and usually appears when Jack thinks of death, regret, dishonor, and suicide.

whereas in the first episode i assumed the dark green knight to be a negative omen, this time he guided jack to the temple, which led to him managing to survive. perhaps the dark figure is a symbol of jack's duty to carry on, no matter how exhausted or burnt out he may be. perhaps blue jack telling him to kill himself is his weaker, human, corruptible side, and his stronger, honor-bound side keeps manifesting as this pissed off warrior, because he knows he must keep searching for a way, even though he's kinda over it by now, just like aku

3 of them fell without being mortally wounded first. and seriously, i highly doubt they gave Ashi like 5 or 6 unique moments: seeing the ray of sunshine, stabbing the bitch and stealing her bow and arrows (and immediately shooting it to help 2 sisters), the ARE YOU WEAK test with the fingers being crushed, i think she was the first one to see the deer and i got the impression she thought it was beautiful, and i think she was the one to climb the tree and see the shooting star, to the final bitchy tantrum screaming at jack...... all just to kill her in such a lame way, nah im sure she survived. she also always stood in the center when they were unmasked. maybe 1 or 2 others will survive with her, but i think she will be the one to survive and maybe even be brought to the light side. someone also mentioned she could possibly be a love interest, but i find that a little far fetched.

So for everyone asking how I didn't know about Jack's name lol.... I just never saw that episode on TV. I just started going back and watching it in order recently. As for the episode, hot damn! Holy shit, the Scottsman having an army of daughters was amazing and hilarious. I was legit shook when they "killed him". It was cool going back to the city. Another reason I don't think going darker feels forced at all, this terrible shit has been happening the whole time it just isn't thrown in our face. For example the criminal aliens coming to the city and getting access to an occupied town. That sort of stuff HAD to have happened in the old series, we just never saw it.

Too dope. I think the second episode had the best action sequence in the entire series but I liked this one the most overall. A lot of call backs and nostalgia. It was good to have a SLAYER episode after everything that's happened. I'm so happy Jack isn't the ultimate buzzkill everyone said he was in the rave episode the kids still get down, just not to Aku's evil beats... Jack ACTUALLY saved the rave.

But I did like seeing the ravers again, as well as the others. This was a great episode that really showed how much of a hero Jack is and how much of a positive impact he had on the world, despite it still being ruled By Aku and Jack's falling into a depression.

I hate to sound like a cheese ball but I thought this episode was adorable. Good action sequence at the end and a more "fun fight" at the start. The most I've probably ever laughed at Samurai Jack episode. So I'm not gonna be happy to see it happen but we all know it's inevitable Ashi dies next week so we get out Cowboy Bebop style big epic finale

Probably took Jack around 70 years to get it done but better late than never.

To be quite honest, if they keep to the whole 13 episodes per season thing, I don't have the highest hopes that the last 3 episodes will be very entertaining, we just wasted the last two episodes further contriving and expanding upon jack and ashi's relationship, and jack just lost his sword AGAIN. How are they going to squeeze another scotsmans ghost scene into this now?.

Jack missing his family and being all depressed fits with the character. Jack turning into an awkward high school boy at the sight of one hot asian does not. They just jammed it in there as filler.

Ahem, nobody gives a flying duck about obviously contrived shipping of characters. What's important is that multiple episodes were wasted on pointless awkward flirting.

You're right, fuck character development. WE WANT MORE 'SPLOSIONS!!!

Does the sight of Jack falling in love and being happy with a woman really trigger you that hard? Are you that lonely?

Clearly you didn't pay much attention to the last episode, because the ending was the culmination of all that shit between Jack and Ashi that you think was "a waste of time"
Maybe it was because you were too busy sperging out because Jack wasnt acting like a soul-less robot with a sword.

They definitely didn't need to spend more than one episode establishing that jack and ashi have fallen in love. What I'm getting at is that this last season has been so over-saturated by the whole daughters of aku ark that we barely get to see the other elements of the scenery and reoccurring characters. and now to hear that this season only gets 10 episodes instead of the traditional 13, that's just a big letdown to me.

>Maybe it was because you were too busy sperging out because Jack wasnt acting like a soul-less robot with a sword.

You seem like you could stand to lower your sodium intake, you seem to be a little too salty over the notion that some people have the opinion that this last season started going downhill 3/4 of the way through (given that the season ends at 10 instead of 13).

Strawmanning? On my /mtv/? It's more likely than you think.

I already said that Jack's depression about being unable to kill Aku and losing his sword were well placed. His flashbacks to his family weren't filler even though they might be able to be construed as such. The difference with the romance subplot is that Jack's never done anything like this before. You probably aren't a true fan of the show and you're just watching cause it's currently trendy, but this is way out of a character for Jack. Get on my level fam.

its not out of character. there are several episodes where jack is made all weak and shaky by women. even the episode Jack Remembers the Past, he had a childhood crush on a girl when he was a little boy. then there was the episode where Aku becomes Ikra and while admittedly the fake story about the father trapped in a ring of fire was used to manipulate jack (whose own father was in a lifelong torture) but i think the gender and fact that Aku chose a sexy woman body was a big influencing factor. then there was the time in Four Seasons of Death when springtime manifested as this beautiful nymph spirit creature and jack was sedated and taken out of the fight for a while due to her femininity overwhelming him somewhat. then there was the time on The Good, The Bad, and the Beautiful where Josephine the assassin uses her feminine wiles to get jack to go up on top of the train so her ex husband can grab him for the bounty.

i think there is a strong precedent for Jack not being good with the ladies, and i think out of all the things they could have given jack, giving him Love, even just a taste of it, is truly gratifying and something he truly deserves after the hardships he has endured.

It's just a lazy plot element IMO. To be quite honest when I first saw the trailers for samurai jack with the beard and armor I was hoping for some kind of tragic gritty final chapter but all the grit wore off after jack killed off the majority of the daughters of aku.

There were so many more imaginative ways that jacks final chapter could have turned out, but no, we get the old tired protagonist falling in love and having their love used against them routine.

Way to think outside the box, Genndy.

It seems like something about romance in general gets your undies in a twist. It's not "a lazy plot device" it's life. A lazy plot device would be having Jack mindlessly cut through hoards of enemies for 30 minutes straight every episode to appease puberty-addled teens who only bother to look up from their phones when there's lots of flashing lights and blood and, of course, 'splosions.

More like this whole season has been about the girl to the point where everything else about the world around jack was cut back to a few flashback scenes in that one episode.

What is it with people having such a hardon for a bland contrived love interest? Why not let jack fall in love AFTER he accomplishes his mission in making it back to the past? You know, with somebody who isn't going to cease to exist after jack undoes all that has become aku? Which is what would happen if jack makes it back to the past and prevents aku from taking over the world? That way we could have seen more interesting scenarios play out for this last season and you mongoloids would have your happy sappy love ending just like how you want.

I seriously doubt Jack or Ashi get killed. This show is all about happy endings. Hell, this season has already had anti-suicide themes. And Jack basically can't be killed unless he lets Aku kill him (because he's too good at fighting).

I thought it wrapped up rather neatly altogether. In particular, Jack's whole quest was a time traveler story, a timeline that ceased to exist can't just have a piece of it 'grandfathered' in outside of Jack's mental faculties. I would've liked Ashi just not arriving with Jack through the time portal personally.. Ashi only existing until she realizes she can't is kinda amusing. The wholesale slaughter of Jack's comrades was pretty funny but also rendered void as JACK GOT BACK WA-WATCH OUT.

The time travel stuff is just poorly thought out and makes zero sense even from its own internal logic. It felt like Genndy was just thinking that Jack had to get back to the past because it was in the intro song. Jack doesn't need to go back to the past, he only needed to stop Aku's evil and grow as a character in some meaningful way. Heck, most viewers of this show growing up I don't think really cared about Jack going back to the past to begin with because the future that Jack traveled to was much more interesting, despite the fact that Aku was the evil emperor. A better ending would have been Jack choosing to stay in the future because he won't deny the people of the future their right to exist as they are and because he's grown accustomed to it and has stopped seeing himself as an alien to it. In that way, Jack grows as a character and the audience is allowed to imagine an exciting world where Jack and his friends continue to fight evil and rebuild following the collapse of Aku's empire.

Shit, that was what the show and comics pretty much said was going to happen, but instead we get 10 episodes of the Adventures of Ashi Sue starring Samurai Jack (aka All your favorite characters are erased from existence).

Yeah, maybe. It would've been a very unexpected twist for Jack to live in the future with Ashi and make a new life, esp since that would mean losing his original motivations(saving his family, world, timeline, etc.)

>Heck, most viewers of this show growing up I don't think really cared about Jack going back to the past to begin with because the future that Jack traveled to was much more interesting, despite the fact that Aku was the evil emperor.

The premise of a time traveling samurai stretched out for a pretty damn good run imo. Yeah, just seeing Jack do cool things in colorful scenes was a definite hook and it did make it easy to just disregard Jack ever actually beating the elite four and catching all the Pokemons/getting the macguffin so long as the series went on.

I think that's why the end might feel bittersweet or anticlimactic. He got the macguffin, and it wasn't able to save the parts of Samurai Jack fans had grown fond of.

I know that when it comes to time travel you're supposed to suspend a certain amount of disbelief, but I mean come on, at least try to be internally consistent.

The thing that really sticks in my craw is that if Ashi is going to disappear because she doesn't exist anymore, which in itself makes no sense, then jack should as well. By the logic of the show, if Ashi isn't going to exist, then neither is that incarnation of Jack. They should both instantly disappear as soon as jack kills Aku in the original timeline and that universe explodes I guess.

It seems like there should be two different outcomes of this time-traveling that should be mutually exclusive, in one there's an infinite loop of jacks going to and coming back from the future. In this scenario both of the timelines are "stable" and Jack and Ashi should be able to exist in the original timeline. In the second scenario, when Jack kills Aku after coming back from the past it should create a paradox that results in time reverting back to either Aku never existing at all or a timeline where Jack never gets sent to future in the first place.

TL;DR:The show is picking and choosing which pieces of time travel logic they want to follow, which leaves me feeling frustrated instead of satisfied.

Time travel is really the worst plot device.

It doesn't have to be. It's just all about being consistent with yourself. Star Trek has always been able to do it. Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross was able to do it. Dragonball was able to do it. Back to the Future did it. Flashpoint Paradox did it. Even that remake of The Time Machine was able to do it by having the Time Traveler realize that he couldn't change the past since if his fiance hadn't died he'd never have the motivation to build the Time Machine in the first place.

The problem was that Genndy was never able to really decide whether he wanted to follow the theory of linear time or the theory of branching timelines.

The ending was indeed weak. The first few episodes were gritty as fuck; just what was needed on the adult swim platform.
Then it got progressively PG as time went on, had pointless filler (which I didn't realize until I found out it was only 10 episodes long)
Ashi was an interesting character; but it would've made far more sense for her to kind of follow in jacks footsteps (right after the inside the big fish episode) and seduce him, both falling in love because they've literally never experienced it in their lives. They should've explored that instead of this lighthearted love shit that was had over several episodes, because it left a huge chunk of story unexplored. The lightheartedness also contrasted too severely with the grittiness at the start.

Then when the final fight came, everything was predictable. She stopped being a puppet because of love. They went back to the past together. They got married. The only thing I didn't expect was her disappearing, back2thefuture style. Why? Because it was fucking stupid, that's why. Now jack is alone, in a past he is no longer associated with, with a future where everything he's strives for now ceased to exist. Unsatisfactory.

A cooler ending would be that he goes back to the past but Ashi ceases to be in the process (obviously upsetting Jack), defeats Aku, but cannot adjust to life in the past, finds a time portal and flings himself back into a future; a different future where Aku does not exist. There he sees a utopia, where everyone he met in the future still exists but nobody recognizes him as it's a different future, not the one he was previously in, he is not celebrated. Here he finds Ashi again, but she is not of Aku's lineage, and does not recognize him. He shyly asks her on a date, she reciprocates. THE END. Bittersweet, but realistic and Jack is happy.

I think jack could've gotten back to the past just as easily if they didn't make aku destroy all the portals earlier on then ashii would have essentially been useless. Or ya know, Jack couldve stayed in the future. Yes aku killed his family and shit and that would weigh on him but he would move on and the world would be thankful for what he had done. Or something else, idk, all i know is ashii didnt HAVE to die and jack didn't HAVE to go back to the past (despite what the intro through the entire series to you)...they could have done something with that.

I feel like they just wanted the series to end and to stop being bothered by people who wanted an ending. Then again, I'm pretty cynical at times.

>I would love to hear what other ending people would have preferred though
For real.

Very good, resonated with me but bad ending.

Time travel (which is impossible since time in the linear sense doesn't exist) implies that an object like a person or 2 can be encapsulated and transported to an earlier time.
This very encapsulation breaks them out of the time line they were in and thus something like her dying (days?) after they travelled is just stupid.
Better options would be to she sends jack back only, or they both go back and live happily ever after.

Personally I might have gone for an ending that leaves it up to the viewer, like they teleport and the show cuts there.
It's gonna be hard to satisfy everyone on such a loved and special series. Let the viewers make their own ending up.
And the happily ever after ending is a bit boring tbh.

The objectively correct ending is: Jack stays in the future and starts a new and happy life with Ashii and is a renowned hero for saving the world from Aku. If you ask anyone with a doctorate in writing, that's what they will tell you. Stories have formulas. If you want to make a satisfying story, you follow the formula.

Fuck, I'm actually scared to watch this final episode lol. For what it's worth, I thought this Season was fantastic. I dunno if season 4 or this one was the best though (so many good episodes in Season 4). Prolly gonna watch it tonight, it's been a fun ride.

true, that is a good ending. Also bumed we didn't get to see the two top assassins, Deathblow and Da-bomb, which were advertised but not shown. Scaramouch was also a great character.

This. Jack is the hero, the hero must put childish things behind (his past), accept his future and his responsibilities in reality, and become a person who is successful and at peace with that success.

Jack going back to the past is just a horrific ending moral, because it tells the viewer they can just drop all their responsibilities and accomplishments and even their romantic love to go back to a past that never was and be a forever-child in a world that shouldn't be, because its time has passed.

I guess Gendy Tartakovsky had a freudian slip. Also Jack was only 8 when the shit went down so how much attachment can he really have after X years fighting Aku in the past (say 12 years to make him 20) then 15 years in the future?

Almost. The objectively correct ending is: Jack returns to the past, kills Aku, then somehow at the last moment returns to the future. His family and homeland are saved, and he can meet "Ashi's" future reincarnation, as well as running into future buddies like the scotsman who do not recognize him or know all he has done for them. If I were the creator and director of the show that's how I'd end it: Jack saves the world, returns to the future, and walks into a bar and somehow gets in the scotsman's way.

Removing Aku from the equation would probably mean all the settings and characters Jack went to and met no longer exist. Especially Ashi.

How is the scotsman alive in the past?

Don't they say in the shows opening theme each episode that it's 50 years that have past since he's been in the future? so at a minimum he's 58 which explains why he actually noticed he wasn't aging. That wouldn't be as obvious with only 15 years.

Fucking Time Travel... There's a lot of wtf questions here, I think the finale should have been an hour. Technically it is the hero ending even if most of us (myself included) weren't in love with it. I don't know exactly what year the past and pressent are supposed to be but Jack saved a whole shit tone of generations from Aku's evil but ya, something about it didn't feel right. We never really got into the complications of time travel until this last episode despite the show being about a time traveling Samurai. Just left asking a lot of questions. The final fight it self was "fun" and a bit intesne towards the end but I was expecting a lot more, especially when this season gave us (IMO) the best action scenes of the series, that second episode had one the best animated fight sequences I've personally seen. I DID like the final scene a lot though, even if I didn't want to end with Jack going back to the past

The reason for me as to why "something didn't feel right" is the episode where we see all the people Jack saved and who they grew up to be Only to have them not exist or eventually exist and lead a totally different life

The Ashi stuff, romance in a show that had non before is fine, I had no problems with her up until the time portal. Her having Aku's power just for combats sake is totally fine but her using the portal seemed like to much Deus Ex B.S. for my taste
