Buy it! The whole season!
This is one of the best animes I've seen in quite a while. IMHO, it ranks up there with Ninja Scroll and Ghost in the Shell as far as interesting concept, well-executed artwork and great action sequences. You won't be disappointed!
Very impressive. High points range from excellent hip-hop soundtrack that fits the mood of the show, which was composed by the RZA, wonderfully fluid animation from GONZO, and fantastic voice acting. Sam Jackson does a stellar job. I'm just bummed that it's only 5 episodes. That just means you'll have to savor everyone of them. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.
One of a kind
