In 2006 The Greatest Anime Ever will arrive

While reading AOD's forums.....

Source: MOON PHASE

Details are scant and I'm too lazy and without more resources. Here it is:

TV Animation AFROSAMURAI is slated for an [All] United States Premiere in 2006. The Japanese broadcast of this show is planned to be around the same time as the U.S. Premiere.

The main character will be voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. The animation will be produced by GONZO.

I can't help but ask if this was inspired by the afro-hero Nabeshin (producer/character of the Excel Saga anime), or vice-versa?

but its samuel. Correct me if I'm wrong, but he's a great actor and all, but I always remember him having a boring voice.

It just depends on how he uses it. Like in Pulp Fiction, he sounds pretty menacing when he quotes scripture before blasting people away.

Yeah but didn't the scene where his character quoted scripture before emptying a clip into a baddie in the incredibles get cut?

The Incredibles is slightly different that anime. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm from a place where all the losers watch anime, but PIXAR type stuff is accepted. I don't know how many celebs would like to be thrown into the category of movies that losers watch. god forbid if they "lost" some prestige in the eyes of their fans.
