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?

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.

i think the music bot was added very consciously as a balance to all the other elements which were much darker and also as a throwback to the sillier cartoon network era

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.

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.

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

I'm loving the new SJ. The only problem is that the new Aku voice doesn't hold a candle to the old. Such a shame.

Well it was obviously going to sound like someone doing an impression. What else would you have them do, chop up old voice clips like when South Park brought back Chef?

I was expecting much worse. I think the new VA is doing fine.

Yeah, I know. It's just such a shame though, the original Aku voice was just incredible.
