Shame, it was an excellent show. The art in a lot of episodes is superb and Aku might be one of the best cartoon villains ever! Episode XIII where he tells children fairy stories about how evil Jack is is probably the funniest thing I've ever seen in a cartoon!

Aku : The beast was struck, and was transformed, into... BEEEEEEF JERRRRRRRKY.

I haven't watched it in awhile but from what I saw it looks like a cool little show. Yeah that scotish bounty hunter owned all. I like how there is no black outlines used around the characters. I think doing away with the lack outlines is something more animaters should do.

I watched a lot of Samurai Jack, but how is Aku such a great villain? I'm seriously asking this because he never seemed to do that much or have very much dialogue. Enlighten me.

I think it's a lot of things. He's the lord of the world and has a presence in every episode, even if he doesn't appear. He's got a good balance between being sinister and humourous, without looking incompetent or retaining the same morons who always fail to dispose of the hero. Coupled with the fact he's powerful and knows how to exploit Jack's good nature, Aku ranks right up there in terms of cartoon villains.
