  4. Hey guys, I just want to point out that the TV-MA rating is just a rumor.We have no confirmation from Toonami on what the rating might be.Sorry about that.

    The only thing that we know for sure is that the series will take place 50 years after season 4 and will have 10 episods.

  5. 50 years and while Jack has gotten older, there isn't any grey hair on him.... I think we found what style is the descendant of Kenshin Himura's supersonic sword.

  12. So did anyone catch the season premiere last night?
  13. I did. I liked the darker tone of the episode. It was also interesting to see Jack actually using futuristic weapons more. I wonder how Jack will get his sword back? He needs it to defeat Aku. Plus in a previous episode, we see a vision of an older looking Jack wearing a red cape returning to the past through a time portal and he has the sword. In the meantime, it's interesting to see him fight without it. I wonder how long it will be before Aku learns of it. Jack stopped the assassin from calling him about it, but Aku should learn of it eventually.

    I also loved the look into Jack's psyche. I wonder if the vision of the samurai on the horse is supposed to be an even darker, maybe even evil version of Jack himself? Perhaps another manifestation of his guilt for those left behind in the past?

    The part with the daughters of Aku was interesting. Seems they were raised to believe Aku is a Creator god and that Jack is terrorizing people and destroying things. I suspect that it's being set-up for an eventual heel-face turn when the truth of the situation is revealed.
