Samurai Jack: XCVII Review
Hey guys, Kris here and man did this episode give me feels right in the kokoro so let’s not waste any time and get on with the episode.
First off apparently Scaramouche is alive and is on his way to tell Aku about Jack losing his sword, luckily for Jack he’s having quite a difficult time getting in contact with Aku.
Skull-fucking taken too literally
For the most part this episode primarily focused on Ashi looking for Jack and running into some old faces from Jack’s past. And by Ashi meeting all these people she was able to finally helping Jack overcome his grief and shame for not defeating Aku for so long.
For Jack his biggest issue was that he believed all hope was lost but thanks to Ashi he remembers all the people he himself has given hope too throughout the years and everything he’s done wasn’t in vain after all.
After weeks of primarily dark and depressing episodes this the episode that we needed, having fans reminisce about our hero’s journey especially with how close were getting to it’s conclusion. I’m just a sucker for these kinds of episodes, I even teared up a bit during the song at the rave, especially with the line.
“We will never forget you till the day way die.”
I couldn’t agree more.
With Ashi looking like she finally leaving behind the her past and Jack having that fire back into his eyes their next step is for Jack to finally recover his sword and hopefully vanquish Aku once and for all. I also believe this is leading to the final battle with Jack and the people he’s saved against Aku and his amy.
So that’s all I gotta say really, short review I know, this was a pretty straightforward but still great episode, loaded with nostalgia and Jack finally defeating his inner demons. That’s all I gotta say, so until next time, PEACE :)
P.S. I declare that this be the official Samurai Jack fan base sign, WHO’S WITH ME!!!
