    Afro Samurai wins an Emmy

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    It's not often that you hear of a Japanese Anime production winning a significant US media award, but it has just been announced...
    Art director Shigemi Ikeda has received a Primetime Emmy Award for his work on Spike TV and Gonzo's Afro Samurai: Resurrection television film, according to a Monday announcement by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. A jury determines the award recipients in the "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation" category without a nomination process.

    Personally, I thought that 'Afro Samurai' was a series that was so horribly bad that it became a inadvertent comedy series... But putting personal opinions aside, I do admit that the series is 'artistic'...

    Wow that is pretty interesting. I wasn't really expecting that at all! LOL!

    I didn't like Afro Samurai either, myself... But I guess in some ways they deserve the award. ^.^ It looks amazing, for one... The animation is very very well done.

    Afro Samurai is an awesome anime and wouldn't have been given an Emmy if it wasn't. The story was good, the soundtrack was awesome. I mean c'mon who doesn't like the RZA?

    The overall style in Afro Samurai sure is awesome, so I do think that the Emmy award is well deserved.

    Congratulations, Afro!
    You are now breathing manually. :P
