So we're doing something along the lines of Afro Samurai? I've never heard of this comic before. So this was created by American comic creators and Trigger is taking an interests? Oh ho, this is gotta to be gold for these guys. Congrats! I may have to check in.

Actually, the whole "created by Americans" thing is part of the backstory. It's actually done by two Japanese guys writing under false American pen names. The two guys in the video wearing the Daft Punk masks are thought to be the actual creators.

The whole meta-ness of the story surrounding the manga's creation adds a lot to the satirical nature of it all, if you ask me. Laughing

Ah, I figured that was what it was. You have to admit it's an interesting concept. But consider the take on this it could be anything goes. Be prepared to see "FANSERVICE"!!! It's going to be a crazy ride.

I was a instant fan ever since finding out about this title.

I'm looking for the names of these Ninja Slayer characters, their names are in the picture in japanese.

Forever grattitude for those who can help me translate their names Smile
