The Little Jamurai: A Day in the Park.
***A note to the viewer: We know that dreadlocks were not big in feudal Japan, we know that there were no radios at the time either and yes we are hipped to the fact that the Las Vegas Stratosphere is a recent addition to the planet...This series is a mash up of Akira Kurosawa, Shaw Brothers and hip hop. It's entertainment.
In this follow up to 2000's "The Little Jamurai", our young warrior comes face to face with the ramifications of his prior actions. If you haven't seen the first Little Jamurai toon, check it out so this will make more sense. Enjoy!
After a long hiatus, Dreadfully Slick Developments is back in business of comics and cartoons. Thanks to all the fans in New Grounds who've suppported us this whole time. Visit Jamurai.com for more cartoons and higher quality sound than you can get here, because we're talking hip hop folks, so the music matters!
MySpace users go to myspace.com/thejamurai and join our community.
A note to those quick to jump to conclusions out there: The Jamurai, originally created for mixtapes in the mid-90's, predate Samurai Champloo, Samurai Jack and Ghost Dog which they are often compared to. We don't mind the comparison, but we were here first.

Very nice

I appreciate that the flash is high quality. It was enjoyable and I rated it as such... except for the interactivity - you can always use a scene skip.

Something about it bugged me though but I can't quite put my finger on it. It may have been that there were too many closeups. Or that the fights were too short after all of that setup (I read your comment on sword fight length and I understand, but still...). Maybe though it was that the enemies were too dumb (except perhaps the guy that ran). I know that this isn't about intellectual challenges but perhaps the next bad guy can be a bit more clever somehow. I guess after the first one it was all pretty much the same thing: stupid bad guys, a simple fight, the end. I'd love to see you mix it up a bit more.

You know, for a guy named "crapware" you have very constructive criticism. Thanks! Sometimes you can't put a finger on the issue that makes something not wholly fit. Going forward, we'll be incorporating more of the storyline of the comics into the cartoons to flesh them out a bit.

Great

I found it to be really different. I love the style of the art, it had a comic book feel and was pretty well animated. Fuuny, actiony, worth a few minutes. Nice job man =)

I'll be honest.

It has been 6 years since the original Jamurai, and I've got to say...I don't see much improvement since the first. =/
