"The Little Jamurai" was the first openly distributed cartoon from Dreadfully Slick Developments and has been on this portal since 2000 if you can believe it.
The original Jamurai cartoon, The Loud Song of Silence, can be found exclusively at
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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


You have some REAL talent on your hands when it comes to the artwork and overall flow of the story line. From the looks of things, it seems like the plots going to take off the standard kungfu theme of revengence. But not to worry - your unique and fresh style sets this series apart from other kung fu hits. Stay up and stay strong.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not as good as the second one.

It just didn't seem as polished. Though the second one was made when you were better, so....


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

like a mix of The Boondocks and Samurai Champloo

it was cool (even though im not a fan of the whole gangsta style)

a more stylized fighting scene would boost my review to a 10 but o well.

PS the faces of the guys when they got cut up were hilarious


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Yeah, but...

This is good but way too short. With a score like 4.27 and a pace like it has, should be twice as long. Like XIN.

You said the same thing about LJ2, word for word, so I'm not taking this as serious review B. Put something constructive together and I'll listen.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

it is good but...

the people who are into the samurai ...i mean live by it...could easily be affended by not saying its bad
it is good...but theres plenty of people who could easily be ofended by this.....itd be like watching a japanese person act just isnt right...anyways it was good

dreadslick responds:

The Japanese have absorbed black culture like a sponge and imitate black people to great financial success at home and here. From Cowboy Bebop's jazz motifs to the one that's repeatedly mentioned in these reviews, acting black is a Japanese cash cow. Several years ago, the Japanese Writer/Artist/Director Monkey Punch saw our first Jamurai cartoon, The Loud Song of Silence, at Comic-Con and said (through an interpretor) "I like it. It reminds me of Kurusawa." So I'm figuring the Japanese will be okay with this.
