In case you’re unfamiliar, the anime follows Yasuke, the first African samurai. While Yasuke is based on a true figure, the series features mystical elements.
The series’s story is described by Netflix as:
“In a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic, the greatest ronin never known, Yasuke, struggles to maintain a peaceful existence after a past life of violence. But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.”
The series is created by LeSean Thomas while the music is composed by Flying Lotus. The main character Yasuke is voiced by LaKeith Stanfield in the show’s English dub.
Yasuke streams on Netflix tomorrow, April 29, 2021.
