It’s been a few months since Netflix introduced more and more animation on its platform. This time, it’s a anime about the first black samurai in history: Yasuki.

In collaboration with MAPPA Studio, Netflix presents anime about the first African samurai. In fact, Yasuki arrived in Japan as slaves at the end of the 16th century, before becoming a samurai. If the anime to be presented by Netflix had the same name, the story wouldn’t be exactly the same.

In fact, parts of Yasuki’s life will be real, but the character will develop in a fictional world. In the anime, Yasuki is a Ronin who must protect a young girl from the dark forces that pursue her.
