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!

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.


Dreadfuly slick presentation

This has to be one of the most stylized flashes I've seen in a while, and on top of that; the violence was 'realistic' while still being pretty discrete, nicely done!

That was tight.

I saw the original back when it was first released here, and I thought it was awesome. Your stuff is still fresh and fun. I really dug the styles and the new effects that you can get out of Flash 8. Such as the blurring effects and whatnot. And I really liked the Depth of Field used throughout the piece. As well as the angles.

In the background, I loved the "Last Vegas" skyline. I could see the Stratosphere Hotel Casino vividly, and I think I could make out a few other buildings as well. - the Stratosphere is one of my favorite places in the world. So that made this an instant favorite.

I look forward to seeing more and more of your stuff here on newgrounds, and let me be the first to congratulate you on a job masterfully done. I'm definitely still impressed. =)

Hey, not bad! I could actually see this on adult swim in the future...just clean it up a little, work a little more, and bam you got it!

Good work

My only critique is the frame rate, it needs to be higher, but very good.

Great flash. Attention to details paid off.

Great flash. The camera angles/shots were well set up, the suttle things like focus changes and camera movements really put it over the top. I look forward to seeing more of your stuff!
