With only a few days left before the April 29th debut of Yasuke, Netflix has dropped the final trailer and a new piece of key art for this new anime series created, produced, and directed by LeSean Thomas.
Inspired by the true story of Japan’s first African samurai, who served under the legendary warlord Oda Nobunaga, Yasuke will also feature animation from studio MAPPA, home of the later seasons of Attack on Titan.
And here's Netflix's synopsis for Yasuke, along with the latest key art.
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. The story of Yasuke, the first African samurai who actually served the legendary Oda Nobunaga, will be released to the world.
