Afro Samurai 2: The Revenge of Kuma – Volume One

Of all the things to take from anime, the part of Akira where Tetsuo and Kaneda shout each other's names over and over is an odd choice. Yet that's what Afro Samurai 2 is reminiscent of, with protagonist Kuma shouting his dead sister's name repeatedly as he follows her ghost through his own memories while reliving his melodramatic past. There's a cool idea in that but it's presented here as a linear walk broken up by some climbing and jumping, the occasional quick-time-event, and swordfights. It's all in service of a revenge story no one could possibly care about, all talky monologues where people say things like, "This your past! But it is also … your future." This first volume of Afro Samurai 2 bombed so hard in 2015 that it was withdrawn from sale and future volumes were canceled.
