I never got into Samurai Jack, and now I really don't like Samurai Jack because the marathon is going to delay the AoT dub episode on Funimation since it wont air on CN this week. WTF.

I wish the ending went a bit differently but I am glad we finally got closure. The series was definitely artistic. The purposeful lack of black border lines is what really thru alot of people off from it in the beginning. Its alot like the cell shading and wrong human body types in Legend of Zelda Wind Waker. That game's lack of black border lines separating colors and large heads thru me off from that game initially. Samurai Jack grew on me quick tho. The 300 episode with the Spartans was one of my favorites. And anything with the Scotsman.
Meh, I felt the ending was forced as if they were just trying to live up to our expectations but fell sadly short (I mean I was all happy for Jack until the ending fully played out, plus the whole Daughters of Aku thing jsut didn't fell natural for how the show originally progressed). Honestly I thought they could of done more with the ending, maybe flesh out the season some more of make a sixth season to wrap everything up a lot nicer. Ohwell, overall it wasn't badly done it just left a sour taste in my mouth.
Honestly I never had a problem with the art direction (in fact I actually really like it) then again I'm an artist and I like this artsy shit (though cel shading will never be art, it's just poorly done and looks terrible). I thought it fit the story and setting quite well. Honestly I really need to re-watch the series completely to get a better feel for the ending because I honestly don't remember it all that well beyond Season 2 (I've seen it completely through but I honestly don't remember the middle two seasons)
Me and lady rewatched the entire series just before the final season began airing. It helped alot since so many characters and events were referenced in season 5. I was hoping Jack would have defeated aku twice. Once in the future and again in the past.. just in case that future was already set as an alternate time line regardless of the past being changed at that point. It broke my heart to think that the butterfly effect of Jack defeating aku in the past would negate everything he did in the future and all the ppl who may not even exist now as a result of the time line change. I wish we could have gotten an epilogue with scenes of an aku free future were the Scotsman was still enjoying life with his daughters.
