WOW it does look pretty cool indeed found some info on scifi.com
Samuel L. Jackson told SCI FI Wire that he's completed most of his work on the upcoming animated limited-run television series Afro Samurai, based on the Gonzo comic book of the same name. "I think that it will air later this year [on Spike TV]," Jackson said in an interview while promoting his new film, Freedomland. "We're doing five episodes. If those are popular, then we'll probably do more."

Jackson is providing the voice of Afro, an African-American samurai warrior who, in a futuristic feudal Japan, seeks to avenge the death of his father, who was slain before Afro's eyes when he was a boy. In addition to playing Afro, Jackson is co-producing Afro Samurai with the Japanese animation entity GDH and Takashi "Bob" Okazaki, creator of Afro Samurai. A live-action version of Afro Samurai is also in the works, with Jackson reportedly attached to star. :smashin:

Just watched it.
I've tried for many years to get into the Japanese style of animation but I always lose interest, perhaps a 20 minute dose is more my thing especially with some serious voice talent:)
Interesing mix of old and new technology/culture, a little far fetched but what do you expect, excellent website as well.
