Guys, it is not to late to quit now.
Are you sure this is what you want? Remember what happened last time they took a beloved kids cartoon and made it dark and edgy for adults?

I don't . When was the last time that ever happened? If ever?

That's not the point though. The point is we need to look before we leap. Take off the nostalgia glasses.

no, but I remember when they took a beloved kids cartoon and made it future tech gun-toting armored samurai riding heavy motorbike with spiked wheels and graphic mech-organs-rending machine gore with qt wife material in the background
S5 literally cannot be bad, the absolute only regret anyone will ever be able to fathom of it will be that Mako wasn't here to voice Aku for it

We know, but considering the previews, interviews, and the fact that Gendy himself has been wanting to do this for years and it's not some quick cash in like John did, there's not a lot of reason to worry.

The only thing I can't think of relevantly close to this argument is the Flintstone comic and it's fucking great.

I'm with these guys, what happened? And if anything, this looks very fateful and an attractive hook. Too bad it ain't getting a full long season.
>>
I don't think the new seasons is going to be drastically different from what the original was like. I think there will be a little bit of blood now, and the story will be a little be darker considering where Jack is in his life right now. I'm willing to bet there probably won't even be curse words.

Who the fuck is even doing the voice of Aku?

Isn't this what Samurai Jack was always meant to be? I mean don't get me wrong, I liked it before, but it didn't it always feel constrained by the fact that it was aimed at kids?

If anything we're not getting a show that can live up to it's full potential. My biggest worry is that it's a limited run and they're going to fit a whole story arc into that time. I'm not sure if I like the idea of loosing out on the episodic nature.

Can't wait for some more great background art though.
>>
>>90577713
"constrained"
yeah, they were real constrained at the beginning of the ultra-robots episode. Shit is brutal, especially if you imagine the robots as humans.

Nah I get what you mean, but still they were able to get the point across with robots (Even as a little kid I knew what they were doing)
>>
>>90577754
>>90577713
Question for you guys. How do feel about kids watching the original episodes NOW? What about the episodes coming this Saturday?
>>
>>90577754
There will still be robot gore in the new season. The only thing I think being added is blood when it makes sense, and Jack probably actually being wounded/possibly even being shot.
>>
>>90577873
By kids we're talking like 8-10 right? I'd be fine with them watching the original run, then again I'm not an actual parent so I'm a bad judge of this stuff.

The new run? Dunno, I'll have to see it first, though I'd generally say any kids 13 and up are probably good to go. Can't imagine it getting that dark.
>>
>>90577933
Also I think there's a difference between who the old show and new show are aimed at age wise. Let's be honest the new show is for grown ups who watched Jack as kids, where as the original was actually aimed at kids.
>>
Samurai Jack was always dark and edgy. Did you even watch the same fucking show we did? The only difference is that there will be actual blood and maybe some organs as opposed to oil and robot circuits.

But I trust Genndy will do it tastefully considering he won't be going all out because he knows that there will be adults who are going to watch it with their kids.

Also, poor bait. Try again.
>>
>>90577967
Genndy said that he was aware that parents watch it with their kids in the Behind The Scenes video, so it's pretty clear he didn't make it too edgy.
>>
>>90577967
>where as the original was actually aimed at kids.
The original Samurai Jack felt like it was aimed towards everybody. I mean, what kid is going to get the Lone Wolf and Cub cameo?
>>
>>90577929
Jack never actually killed a person in the original series. That's something they made clear is going to change in the new one.

I'm not sure a wink and a nod towards adults really makes it aimed at everybody. Let's not forget, for every robot noir episode, there's an episode where Jack got turned into a chicken.
>>
>>90577512
>Implying original Astro Boy wasn't edgy as fuck

Robot Death Camps, Anon. And the crazy evil circus Astro was sold to.By the man who created him, because he wasn't enough like his dead son.

>>90578353
>there's an episode where Jack got turned into a chicken.
And? That's funny as fuck. There are adult shows that do more juvenile stuff than that.
>>
>>90576989
Considering that this is the last seasons and is only 10 episodes to conclude the story, this is exactly what I want yes
>>
>>90578510
It can be funny, but it really wasn't. Okay, let's agree to disagree on that episode, how about Jack and the Farting Dragon?
>>
>>90576989

Well OP because I'm not a complete even if the new series does suck it wont effect my enjoyment of the original series

You're one of those cunts who cries "X raped my childhood!!" aren't you?
>>
>>90578586
Whether we like these things or not is besides the point. The argument is over whether the show is strictly aimed at kids or is aimed at everyone. My point is that saying "such and such juvenile thing" doesn't really disprove it being for everyone because there are many adult shows that have even more juvenile things than are in Samurai Jack. Watching through the show again after all these years, it felt rather mature (despite the occasional tongue in cheek episodes/moments), and slow paced for a show strictly for kids. Really, watch a show/film series like Zatoichi and you'll see there really not that far apart.

>>90576989
I won't lie, I got nervous once I saw they were going in that direction, and I'm surprised nobody seems to be apprehensive about it.

I mean, it's just not what the show was. Seems like fixing something that isn't broken, though I'm cautiously optimistic.
>>
>>90579256
Yes he did.

>people are calling the very possibility of Season 5 being a disappointment bait

Man, you guys are gonna be devastated if this turns out bad or just okay. I'm hyped for the revival, but you always have to be prepared for disappointment with these things.
>>
>>90578353
>there's an episode where Jack got turned into a chicken.
Yeah, and he got thrown into a a cock fighting ring and was forced to fight to the death.

>>90579406
i bet you 100 dollars it won't be
>>
>creator is saying that Jack is becoming a little like Aku.

What does he mean by this?
>>
>>90579441

I'm with you man. Jack was way more mature than other cartoons sat the time. It was the only cartoon my Dad would sit down and watch with me. He's pretty hyped for season 5
>>
>>90579268
>>90576989
There are so many ways they can ruin it. Mainly by making it more heavy on the dialouge. Another way is by losing what little humour there was in the original seasons. Or by rebooting the lore.

or having Jack use guns.
>>
>>90579711

Jack used lots of different weapons, why not guns?

He's not fucking Batman
>>
>>90577933
>>90578074
>>90577713
Really I don't think it was for kids, even kids who watched Cartoon Network back then.
Kids (at least kids under 12) have really low attention spans. They constantly have to have something loud and actiony thrown at them and even for kids OVER 12 there has to be action or at least "mature humour". Most episodes of Samurai Jack were too pastel coloured and too quiet and slow to cut it.
When I was a kid the most boring episode of any cartoon I saw was the one where Jack goes to his homeland and reminisces about his childhood.
8-10 years old still feels too young for this show.
>>
>>90579711
genndy has basically targetted all of those things in interviews

unless he's todd howard which he ain't i don't think it'll go wrong on those fronts
>>
>>90576989

if they are careful with the use of blood it could potentially be shocking and effective
>>
>>90579755
Why would an ancient Samurai use g7ns when he's trained in a slew of martial arts and the use of conventional weopons like bow staffs, swords, and the light itself? I get that at this point he's been in the xxth century for a while and he has to change with the times but It's still a bit jarring to me.
The closest thing to a gun he ever used was a bow and arrows.
>>
Just saw the first 3 episodes. Not bad at all. You just tell they are doing whatever they want to do with it and having fun. Those the birthing scene was a little much.
>>
>>90579869
because he's stopped giving a shit
>>
>>90579875
can you describe the intro, do they use the same music and stuff
>>
just went to the premier guys.
I'm thoroughly impressed.
/aco/ is probably gonna be sad though

>>90579711
genndy said the first episode had about 3 minutes of dialogue.
>>90579869
>Why would an ancient Samurai use g7ns when he's trained in a slew of martial arts and the use of conventional weopons like bow staffs, swords, and the light itself?

when the Portuguese introduced guns to japan they went fucking nuts over them and started mass producing their own guns. they're superior weapons no doubt about it.

but still I get what you mean. I bet he'll ditch his guns towards the end of the series.

He will ditch the guns because the sword is the only thing that can kill Aku, plus all the meaning and Muh Bushido
>>
>>90579898
No intro since they showed all three episode at once. What we saw in the trailer with jack saying stuff was the intro we got. No idea if that is what they will use since it was a seamless transition.

Here have a swanky ice sculpture from the event.

really? I thought it was a fantastic scene that really emphasized the difference between the expectation of aku through the lens of his followers and then what aku was actually like later.
>>
>>90579947
How was Aku's voice?
>>
Some of the scenes with the blood was just gratuitous but not all. It's edgier but not pointless.
>>
>>90576989
Ren & Stimpy Adult Party sucked because John K's humour only works when he's under a "kids network" filter. Literally every thing he's made without the filter more comes across as creepy and weird, than funny.

All I got from Samurai Jack's 5th season trailer, was that the show no longer has to do fake violence. And considering the tone of the series, even during the original run, I don't see this as a bad thing.
>>
>>90580016
I agree with you, now that I've digested it. When Aku showed up, it was almost like coming home.
>>
>>90580025
Noticebly different but still acceptable.
>>
>>90577098
How was Adult Party edgy?
>Inb4 that one Ren episode
That wasn't edgy. In fact, it was hilarious.

It really did feel like aku but I felt that the voice was just a bit too different from mako. I know that noone can ever replace mako but it just kind of saddened me and took me out of it a bit
