Samurai Jack (2017)  || Ep. 2: Nuts and Bolts 
“Aku doesn't know, and he hasn't shown himself in years. He keeps thinking one of these machines can defeat me. It always seems bad at first. But then I find a way. They’re just nuts and bolts…. Just nuts, and bolts.”

@blairtrabbit: they would find some amazon civilization
blairtrabbit: johnny would almost get them killed
Me: like
Me: immediately
blairtrabbit: like jack would see the giant women step out of the bushes his eyes would get really big

blairtrabbit: and he would side eye johnny and shake his head slowly

blairtrabbit: but it would be to late
Me: hahahaa oh my god
blairtrabbit: johnny would have his mouth open taking a deep breath

blairtrabbit: then the very next shot
blairtrabbit: them in a cage over a fire

Me: “I do not know why you continue to behave this way toward women when I suck your dick every night, Johnny,” Jack says

Me: but in a more PG way

blairtrabbit: johnny just has his head in his hands

The Most Broken Current Cartoon Character

I always thought the new and original characters were the most broken characters like  

Steven Quartz Unvierse has to live the fact that his mom, Rose Quartz, have commited some dark acts in the past

But probably the current most broken cartoon character out of all of them is Samurai Jack

What makes this man such a broken figure is he used to have a strong will that keep him moving, always had hope that he’ll find his way home, and always fight for justice. Even though it seem bad at first, but he finds another way, like he always had.

But now, after 50 years without aging alone, he lost himself in this forsaken time. He lost his honor as a samurai, lost his way to what to fight for and lost his faith to find his way back to the past

Really horrible PTSD

Samurai Jack Post Part 1:

In February of 2016, I had the honor of helping out on season 5 of Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Samurai Jack”. My assignment was to use Genndy’s awesome thumbnail sketches and translate them into production boards which included adding more animation keys and breakdowns. His drawings were super fun to work from since they already conveyed a lot of energy and perfect compositions.  I unfortunately only had enough time and energy to freelance for one episode in my off hours, but I’m just grateful I was even able to do just a little bit work on this incredible project. Genndy is amazing to work under and I learned a lot from my short time on “Jack”. I can’t wait to see the rest of the series. It has already been simply ground breaking in all the ways.

The way Samurai Jack uses unique lighting techniques in dark scenes is fantastic.

The whole scene lighted solely by the movement of a firefly? AMAZING.

An entire fight scene illuminated only by the sparks of clashing weapons? GENIUS.

These are only two examples out of many in the show but they’re enough to see that Samurai Jack goes above-and-beyond for its animation and I just can’t get enough of it.
