Anyone remember watching Samurai Jack on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim? After a long time waiting for the show’s grand finale, Adult Swim and Warner Bros finally released a complete Blu-Ray collection of Samurai Jack. In case you didn’t want to collect the individual DVDs, you can get all five seasons in Blu-Ray. I bought my copy this month from Walmart for about $50. In this post, I want to talk about what I got from this Blu-Ray collection.
First, the collection is not what it seems in pictures online. It is in a box set, but the DVD cases are in a slipcase in which you easily remove. In this picture above, it looks like a typical box set, but if you see it first hand, the entire box is just a slipcase. In front of the box, we have the show’s antagonist Aku and on the side, we have Samurai Jack with a shiny metallic material on the eyes. It’s actually pretty creative as his eyes shine and his entire body is dark in contrast. The back of the box has the collection’s features and the list of seasons. Seasons 1-4 has 13 episodes and season 5 has 10 episodes.
When you open the case, you have five the cases and a metal art print. The art print has the iconic battle between Jack and Aku in the first appearance. The cases on seasons 1-5 is also really cool as it highlights iconic moments and themes in show. We have moments like Jack facing Aku, or Jack fighting the shadow ninja robot. Despite Jack not wielding his sword with his beard appearance in this season 5 cover, the picture you see shows that season 5 got darker and violent and it highlights the content difference than the past seasons.
It’s also funny how the fourth season has a misspelling. Instead of saying fourth season, it says fourtt season.
That’s the end of the unboxing. If you have the money to spend for this action packed, cartoon, you should get it. If not, look for the individual DVDs to save money.
Welcome gamers! I bring you good news if you are a fan of cartoons and video games. If you enjoyed SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, I hope you are ready to play as Cartoon Network’s samurai. Revealed at the IGN Twitter, the upcoming game Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is expected to be released on August 21st, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (Steam and Epic Games). This game is being developed by Soleil Ltd. who also worked on the anime game Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker.
Hello gamers, I got some news that might surprise you. This news came out unexpectedly, but I hope you are hyped because it involves our favorite cartoon samurai warrior. The Cartoon Network/Adult Swim cartoon Samurai Jack is back and this time it will be a video game. This new video game is called Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time and it is made by Adult Swim Games and developer Soleil Games. According to IGN, the game will take place before the final battle with Aku and Jack must travel through different timelines and defeat him. The game script is being done by the series writer Darrick Bachman and 3D art style will emulate the show creator’s style. Soleil Games is a small Japanese Developer company made by former employees who worked on Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden. The gameplay will be a 3D hack and slash and allow players to use many melee and ranged weapons. The game will be released in summer for PS4, XB1, Switch and PC.
According to IGN, series creator Genndy Tartakovsky and series head writer Darrick Bachman will reveal more details at PAX East for Adult Swim Games’ panel on February 28th.
Remember the fifth season of Samurai Jack where the cartoon got dark with elements like blood violence and suicide? Well, get ready to see some violence and action because Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky is back and this time, he is making a cartoon Adult Swim fans. The cartoon is called Primal. It’s unknown if it’s going to be a movie special or TV series, but you can bet that Tartakovsky will be working on this project. If you don’t mind the violence, this may be for you. Primal will be on Adult Swim in the fall 2019.
Genndy Tartakovsky is an animator, director and producer in animation. He worked on cartoons like Samurai Jack, Dexter’s Laboratory and 2003 Star Wars: Clone Wars. He also directed the family movie trilogy Hotel Transylvania. He was this close to directing a Popeye movie, but Sony scrapped it and we ended up getting The Emoji Movie.

There are moments in our lives where we lose our sense of self-worth and value and as a result, we find ourselves deep in darkness or drowning in the ocean. However, every person in this world is a treasure—we treasure ourselves or we are treasured by others—and at times, we may need to be reminded of that. For this month’s topic, we will be exploring pop culture characters who have suffered from mental illnesses, depression, and/or suicide. We will be discussing how these individuals cope with these issues, the reasons for their emotions, and how they handled the situations they are in.
***Mental illness, suicide, and depression are pretty serious topics and we hope that our OWLS post will give you some solace.

Google Play Synopsis:
It’s been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack and time has not been kind to him. Aku has destroyed every time portal and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel. It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity. His past haunts him as well as a cult of assassins dedicated to killing him for Aku’s glory. Samurai Jack is created, executive produced and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.
(Might contain spoilers if you have not seen the previous seasons but I keep them from minimum to none)
Thank God it’s Friday! Hello everyone, this is Matthew of Matt-in-the-Hat and I welcome to my kingdom. Before I begin, let me make a personal announcement. I finally beat Final Fantasy XV! I don’t know when will I do a review but I will say this is the best game I have ever played. This was huge game to play but the adventure and story and characters were worth it. With this said here are some other news! If you are an aniblogger (a blogger who posts anime or manga related content) and you haven’t submitted a post to Arria’s 9th Fujinsei Blog Carnival, go do so before Sunday! Like I said in the past, in this blog carnival, anibloggers can submit and share one post about anime/manga to other bloggers and make friends.
