The highly anticipated anime done by MAPPA and LeSean Thomas, Yasuke, will finally premiere on Netflix on April 29, 2021. Yasuke was announced 3 years ago and we didn’t hear too much about the show. However, on March 10, 2021, Netflix released some screenshots alongside the key visual. The anime will tell the legendary tale of the first African samurai.

Also, in case you don’t know what Yasuke is about, you can read the synopsis below:
In a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic, the greatest ronin never known, Yasuke, struggles to maintain a peaceful existence after a past life of violence. But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.
We truly cannot wait for the Yasuke premiere on Netflix, and we hope that MAPPA will deliver once again!
