    Happy 20th birthday, Toonami! The block's 20th birthday kicks off with a return to one of their most famous logos, a new microseries from Production I.G., and the second episode of the new season of Samurai Jack!

    Previously...
    Samurai Jack has been traversing Aku's world for 50 years, and time hasn't been kind to him. He's haunted by memories of his past and he has grown jaded after losing his sword and decades of making no progress toward his goal. He faces off against the samurai piper Scaramouche, and finishes him off rather quickly.

    Now...
    Jack has to face the Daughters of Aku, who have been training since birth to kill the Samurai. Jack is convinced they're just more of Aku's robotic minions, but when he confronts them in battle, he has to learn a hard truth.​

    Enjoy the world premiere tonight at 11PM! Happy birthday, Toonami!

    Last time, things got dark fast thanks to a cultist mother and her abused daughters, guilt-induced hallucinations, and a narcissistic piper. The last of those is thankfully no longer an issue.

    On another subject, I think Samurai Jack would be wanting to end on CI, or 101. Hence the numbering of the episodes. I wouldn't be surprised if the remaining episodes would make use of this to have us increasingly ask "Aku....Aku.....why....won't.....you.............DIIIIIEEEEE?!?!?!?"

    50 years later, believe it or not things have gotten worse.

    Aku shows putting on eyebrows, much more simple.

    I always just thought his eyebrows were on fire.

    "You mean the samurai who possesses the one sword that could utterly destroy me? ...ehh, whatever."

    Now that they can say "die" on the show, they're certainly getting a lot of mileage out of it.

    Aku's really losing it. Look at him, he's talking to himself

    Two roads diverged in a golden wood.

    Which one is the one less traveled?

    I'm sensing a metaphor here.

    Another day, another beetle bot.

    I sense complacency on both sides.
