Samurai Jack T-Shirt – Aku: The Greatest Evil

Aku T-Shirt

Long ago in a distant land…

There’s something about this Samurai Jack T-Shirt that speaks to me, and I’d put money on that being the maniacal face of the warrior’s arch enemy, Aku.

Samurai Jack was a great cartoon. A lone Samurai warrior possessing the only sword that can defeat the scourge of the planet is thrown through time to face a futuristic Earth, still ruled by the immortal evil that is Aku. Aku himself is a shape-shifting daemon, with flaming eyebrows and fanged teeth who is terrified of Jack and determined to kill him. If that basic storyline and character description doesn’t make for a great carton, then I don’t know what does. Throw in the unique animation and sounds, and it’s just fantastic. For any fan of the cartoon, this face is synonymous with evil and yet some sort of warmth. This is most probably down to the wonderful voice provided by the legendary Mako Iwamatsu, who sadly passed away in 2006, just as talk of a Samurai Jack film was on the cards. Without his voice though, the film was shelved and Jack still wanders the future, looking for a way back. This t-shirt then is both a celebration of a great Cartoon, and a fitting tribute to a wonderful voice.

Fellow Samurai Jack fans can pick this Aku T-shirt up from where it costs £22.99. There are only a few left in stock at the time of writing this review and it comes in black, sizes S-XXL. Long live Aku…
