In the world of Afro Samurai, samurais faight to be the number 1 in which they attain a “God like” status. But only the number 2 samurai can challenge the number 1. So the life of number 2 is a one of constant fights.
The story starts with Afro as a kid seeing his dad, the number 1, die killed by the number 2. After that, he leads a life of revenge and … eventually attains the status of number 1 after a number of fights.
Quite an ordinary anime – the point to note is Afro is accompanied by “Ninja Ninja” completely at the opposite of Afro.
