I finally got time to watch all of Samurai Jack season 5 today. I knew what was coming but the ending was still bittersweet. Thank you, Genndy Tartakovsky, for bringing one of the best shows of my childhood to completion and ending it beautifully.
I couldn't help but do a quick doodle of Aku and Ashi. I want to do one with Ashi and Jack, but I didn't have the patience to draw Jack lol
I couldn't help but notice quite a few similarities between Ashi and Aku's very brief daddy-daughter relationship and Klari and Josiah's. He uses her, completely disregards her own soul, wants, and will, and forces her to act under his command in order to get what he wants. Ashi's defiance throughout the season (as well as her innocence/ignorance/lack of exposure to the opposite sex and the outside world) made me smile.
I wish there was more, but even though Samurai Jack was left open-ended, I'm satisfied with how this wonderful story came to conclusion.
