With history witnessing the great valor of the Black Samurai he is no sudden epiphany to some, but to some, it’s high time to stop sleeping on him and get to know about the very legend.
Yasuke was an attendant of the Jesuit missionary Alessandro Valignano during his visit to
Japan in 1579. He was 24-25 years with a stature of over 6’2″ and with much eccentric black skin he stood out amongst the Japanese.
Later his soaring popularity evoked the curiosity of the Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga. Awestruck by his unbothered appearance and mighty emulating multiples, Oda Nobunaga was convinced to have him as his personal bodyguard.
As Yasuke seemed to grow on Nobunaga, he adorned him with the highest privileges. But soon as Oda Nobunaga’s sovereignty was over Yasuke was further assigned to a missionary located in Kyoto by the rivals. It led to Yasukes’s glorious days fading into an enigma.
MAPPA, the famous Japanese animation studio that brought us the likes of Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen is the official animator of the series. Undoubtedly, the animation quality and the action scenes will be some of the best.
