    After a 13-year hiatus, one of Cartoon Network's most popular original series, Samurai Jack, triumphantly returns to Adult Swim with a new original 5th season to finally conclude the series!

    Previously...
    Jack saves a baby from cannibalistic ogres. Um... The end?​

    Let's pretend that "ending" didn't happen, shall we?

    Now...
    It's 50 years later. Jack continues to travel the world and he still hasn't defeated Aku. Jack, haunted by memories of his past, faces off against Scaramouche, a robotic piper samurai who recently slaughtered a village. Meanwhile, a group of cultist mercenaries, the Daughters of Aku, train in preparation to kill Jack.​

    Enjoy the world premiere tonight at 11PM! Only Toonami.

    Additional Note: As for why this episode is titled "XCII" instead of "LIII," it's to indicate the passage of time.

    I actually had a feeling it was something like that.

    This post is dedicated to the memory of MAKO IWAMATSU,
    the original voice of the Master of Masters, the Deliverer of Darkness, the Shogun of Sorrow.

    "Long ago, in a distant land,

    I, AKU, the Shape-shifting Master of Darkness,

    unleashed an unspeakable Evil.

    But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword

    stepped forth to oppose me.

    Before the final blow was struck,

    I tore open a portal in Time

    and flung him into the Future, where my Evil is Law.

    Now the fool seeks to return to the Past

    and undo the Future that is AKU."

    The show from the past about a warrior from the future wanting to get back to the past has returned to the present, where it is now further in the future for the warrior from the past who is still in the present to...oh, never mind, show's starting.

    I trust there won't be just robot enemies this go round?

    Must be cool having a neon sign on your head.

    And Jack does what he does best: Save the innocent in spectacular fashion.

    Jack-san. You're looking well.

    Fifty years? Feels like thirteen to us.

    Jack's motorcycle slices and dices with spikes on the wheels. Built or stolen?

    This is impossibly cool.

    Jack's helm comes off, we have the mighty "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" stab....and gushing oil! Yep, this is Samurai Jack.

    How weird. Last season ended with a baby. Now we're starting off with more babies.
