Final Thoughts Before Episode 8 Samurai JackI’ve really been sitting down and thinking about all the thoughts I’ve been wanting to collectively put together as a conclusive ending to this beautiful series. Should things take a turn into a different direction, I just want to be able to look back and see what I have gathered to what I thought and took from the story telling leading up to the series finale.
First and foremost. This is a series of generations / redemption / guidance / rebirth and repentance.
Also, a story of parallels.
The story harps heavily on parental figures and children. (Notably daughters)
Starting with Jack rescuing a mother, daughter and newborn.
Jack’s flashback and torment of failing his whole village, Father and mourning Mother while also taking the lessons that he’s learned from him.
Ashi and her upbringing, lack of understanding, abusive and manipulation and flashbacks.
There are still 3 episodes left with so many unanswered questions, the origin and motive beh
A few more questions before we 'Set Sail'1. Why was Ashi able to see the Samurai Spectors? He was there with Scaramouche and he thought Jack was boockoo koo koo. (Cuz he didn’t see him.)
Ashi and her sister don’t follow the code of the Bushido? Why was she able to see the same Samurai ancestor spirits Jack was able to?
2. “All those children dead because of you.” ...were the blue children the only children he was talking about? Of course there were the ones in Jack’s hallucinations....but are those the ONLY children?
3. The High Priestess...What exactly does she have against Jack? Why does her loyalty to Aku run so deep? Aku doesn’t have ANY idea who these women are. Every one else after Jack are usually an Aku minion or a bounty hunter who’s been promised money in return for the capturing or the killing of Jack. Why does she HATE the Samurai the so much that she follows Aku so blindly? What has he ever done to her?
4. 8th episode
Samurai Jack: Remainder of the SeriesThere's such a divide in the fandom.
1. I'm glad they established that Ashi is not underage (Phil Lamaar tweeted saying "Who said she was 17?")
It's not the age that really bother's people it's the lack of emotional / worldly maturity on her end. Yes, she might be of age, but Jack is a GROWN man who's traveled the earth. This girl is JUST beginning to understand human emotion and has barely scratched the service of a friendship.
2. So many people believe that because the voice actor liked the ship post people tag them in that means they're behind it, when literally the week before they liked a half a dozen Paternal / Father / Daughter tweets as well.
3. I'm also glad that it's established that Jack isn't '70' that he was just a warrior lost in time (Again by Phil LaMaar)
4. The last episode had Ashi looking at the history of Jack and the effect that he had in the world. Personally, that didn't scream 'love interest' but rather ' person looking at the successes of an a
Samurai Jack 5th EpisodeI think the thing that makes me feel so uncomfortable is that people keep saying "the foreshadowing" of a romantic interest while there is actual Father Daughter moments currently unfolding. I feel this season is working a lot in contrast ESPECIALLY now that the Scotsman has daughters and raising / teaching unruly children would be something that Jack / Scotsman would have as a commonality. I think it's still up in the air to be honest. This is more me venting. I think tumblr is just filled with a ship but I feel better going out into the outside social media and seeing RATIONAL explanations OTHER than twilight (ugh) but mostly outside of tumblr people want it to be Father / Daughter. Not to mention Genndy is known to hate pairing up the main character / rely on a romantic plot. Because if it is going Father / Daughter (Which I think it is) It's beautifully done. She reminds me a lot of Jack to be honest and it's really working in contrast. They contrast Jack and her Mother constantly,
J x AThe fact that people are using the twilight theory to justify Jack / Ashi ship is already a big red flag.
It’s not even the age difference that makes it an issue.
This girl as no conceptual understanding of sexuality LET ALONE the world outside of her training.
I get everyone wants Jack to happy, but her whole set up, childish portrayal, flashbacks of her abusive mother ONLY to be countered by Jack’s compassion and understanding points to paternal because honestly this story is way to brilliant to have ALL it’s problems solved with romance.
Not to mention Jack’s own flashbacks of his father’s lessons that he’ll most likely apply to his guidance of Ashi.
Don’t get me wrong. There IS going to be a story of love, but honestly at this point it’s leaning more towards paternal guidance.
This girl doesn’t need a boyfriend / husband (Right now) . She needs guidance/ compassion/ love and nurturing. You see it too many
Samurai Jack 4th EpisodeI feel as though if 50 years had not passed and we didn’t see Jack as a full grown man through out the childhood / pre-pubescence of these girls then I would lean more towards supporting the romance. Ashi seems like a great character but honestly in terms of a romantic interest not a creative one (It’s been done how many times before. Assassin turn love interest?) . BUT in terms of Father Daughter I think it’s incredibly creative how he could mentor her despite his own internal struggle. Plus a slap in the face to Ashi that her character was only used for her sexual appeal and THAT’S all that Jack needed these 50 years.
Plus this girl has no concept of sexual experiences. Jack is not mentally a young man anymore. The experienced and in-experienced sexual dynamic would be a little extreme rather than that of a younger couple.
Everyone is going crazy of episode 8 description.
The term means “Flourishing” The flourishing / d
Samurai Jack 3rd EpisodeI saw the 3rd Episode 2 weeks ago and I gotta say it’s going to have a lot and is going to be the most shocking one you’ve seen thus far.
One of my biggest arguments against the Jashi ship was the pacing of the show and how the romance would be rushed. Not to mention her age, and the just a huge distraction and injustice it would be that out of 4 seasons it would take a romance to help Jack succeed. I’m still a strong believer that Jack will some how be the Father / related to the daughters of Aku considering that Aku has yet to even know of their existence at this point.
It is confirmed that they do team up at one point do to the production art release in a later episode.
There is a small scene that will be show in tomorrow’s episode that may possibly set up for a love interest, but it honestly depends on how you take it.
I really think they’re going pull the idea of “Turns out the abusive Mother was wrong. Fighting for
Samurai Jack theory I always shipped Jack and the field girl back in the day. But at this point I just want the man to be able to take a nap.
Honestly I can’t see past Father / daughter with her Jack/Ashi
I think biological and mentally she’s too young. Plus I’m prettttry sure he’s the father.
Idk why people are so blown away by that concept. This isn’t Cartoon Network anymore. This is a man who is contemplating ending his own life. Sex is not something that is behind the possibility here. Especially for a man who’s as stressed the fuck out as Jack. It doesn’t always mean love or that he wants to be with someone nor does that mean they wants to be with him. It’s literally just so he could release stress and tension before he snaps.
Samurai JackI’ve only seen the first 3 episodes.
I have a feeling that these women are Jack’s daughters biologically.
I know a lot of people are jumping on the ship band wagon of that one girl and Jack but it’s kinda too late and very unnecessary at this point in the series. He’s mentally and physically exhausted. It would rushed and just not believable.
I think that they’ll show how it happens and that it was a brief encounter with the woman / mother. And then fast forward to the present where it’s revealed that since nothing and no one in this time can destroy him, it would literally have to be part of himself. But since his blood is so pure, the good in one of these girls is going to overcome the hatred.
Which will leave Jack to the horrible realization that he’s killed his own children.
Would love some thoughts
A guide about referencingWe are a group of artists that have noticed there's widespread confusion and misconceptions spreading about the limits and ethics of referencing, so we have decided to help the community by clearing up the idea of what referencing is! -- You can also watch a video about it, just click here!
What is referencing?
When we talk about “referencing,” we could also talk about “searching for information.” Imagine that you have to do an essay for school about plants, animals, planets, in other words, a subject you don’t know much about. What’s the first thing you do before you start writing? Search for information about that subject, either on the internet or books, or ask your family and friends.
In the art world, referencing is exactly the same. It’s recognizing your lack of knowledge about a specific thing and seeking knowledge about the subject, so that you know more t

New llama levels and Badge Pages! Fellow llama herders!
You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.
DeviantArt and Angry MobsDue to the nature of DeviantArt it is quite easy to perceive that there's "a lot of people" who are upset with any given thing, enough so that you could even believe that "everyone" believes the same thing.
I felt that perhaps the community would like me to explain how DeviantArt views these types of things.
First of all, DeviantArt, Inc. is extremely deliberate. We don't do anything accidentally. Everything that hits the community is the result of a team collaboration that usually take weeks or months to complete. And so when we make mistakes they are felt by a group here or by our whole team.
Things you should know:
First of all you must believe that our team is 100% motivated to ensure that DA is healthy, and that decisions we make turn out to be better than how things were before. Each decision is likely to affect different pockets of people, and so you will always see the group that's unhappy pool together. The happy group is happy, so they don't tend to band toget
