First Look At Netflix’s Yasuke! Animated By MAPPA!

After months of anticipation, we finally got our first look at the legendary African samurai, Yasuke in the upcoming Netflix anime by Director, creator & executive producer: LeSean Thomas!

In a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic, the greatest ronin never known, Yasuke, struggles to maintain a peaceful existence after a past life of violence. But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.

I won’t lie, I’m liking the design for Yasuke! I thought he was going to have dreads or something but this is cool too! Director, creator, executive producer by LeSean Thomas Character design by Takeshi Koike. Music & executive producer by Flying Lotus & Animation production by MAPPA.

Let me know what you guys think of this reveal!
