  • Great episode that reveals Afro's history and motives.

    Afro Samurai is on his quest for the owner of the number 1 headband when he is challenged by a samurai with a raspy voice wearing a teddy bear helmet. Ninja Ninja warns Afro that cute and cuddly things can be deceptive and to walk away. The teddy bear samurai challenges Afro for the number 2 headband. During the fight, Afro is knocked unconscious and has a flashback of how he won the number 2 headband.

    Afro was on a mission to avenge his father’s murder at the hands of the samurai with the number 2 headband when he is attacked by a gang also looking for the number 2. Afro defeats the gang and finds out that the number 2 is close. He is taken in to a dojo with a head sword master to train to become a samurai and a member of the family. Afro learns that his trusted sword master is the holder of the number 2 headband and challenges him. Number 2 tells Afro of the burden of the headband, the violence and killing. A gang sees the two and challenges number 2. He takes off fighting and his family comes out to try to help. When it is over, only Number 2 and Afro remain standing. The head sword master’s son, Jinno, was barely alive. Afro defeats his sword master becoming the owner of the number 2 headband.

    When Afro comes to, he realizes that the samurai in the teddy bear helmet is Jinno. He must fight Jinno and win to get to the owner of the number 1 headband.
