Hello people it’s meowth900 here coming at you with a new recap of Samurai Jack season 5.
We start with season 1 through 4 Samurai Jack on a mountain in HD. He encounters a baby ram, who he thinks was abandoned. But as Jack walks, the ram starts following, and other baby rams begin following as well. It was so cute I almost died from cuteness overload. Jack why are you so good with fluffy animals?
Suddenly, a big shiny wormhole appears, and Jack tries to jump into it. Aku appears out of nowhere and stops him by destroying the wormhole. Aku tells Jack that it was the last one in existence (implying that he won’t be able to return to the past). This is the first time we see Aku and Jack encounter each other during this season. I like the HD art style here too. Aku conjures angry bulls to fight Jack (real ones not robots by the way) and disappears. The scene is bloody as Jack kills them all. Somehow, however, in the process, Jack appears to have killed one of the baby rams, and be he becomes nervous and guilt stricken. He also imagines he killed all the baby goat rams in the process. In his guilt stricken state, Jack loses his sword inside the cracks of the cliff.
We return to the present time. It appears Jack is telling Ashi the story of his sword. He explains that “I realize now that I did not lose the sort – the sword left me.” Jack you big old ham. You’re gonna get your sword back this week aren’t you?
A big bird takes Jack and Ashi to the mountains where Jack sits to meditate. He imagines himself on a quest, floating across the sea on a raft. He comes to the horizon peddles himself right into the sun. He continues to work his way through darkness until he reaches a house, where an old man resembling Buddha is hanging at. He asks Jack whether he is lost in Jack replies that he is. Jack enters and makes a cup of tea, carefully placing all of the utensils and pots appropriately. He spoons some water along with spices and herbs, and he offers it to the man. The man says that the tea is terrible – even though he use the right ingredients, he says the tea “lacks most important one — balance.” Jack asks the man to show him the way to his sword, but the man refuses, saying he must find his own way. Jack argues with his inner demon who tries to send them in the wrong direction. He understands that the demon has kept him from achieving his goal of defeating Aku and going back home. He vanquishes the demon. The old man announces that Jack is now free and worthy. Jack is presented with a sword and is returned to consciousness. Hooray Jack got his master sword back!
Meanwhile, Ashi hears a troop of warriors coming over the horizon. The troop is made up of what appears to be thousands of warriors, yet she confronts them and says she will stop them. The warriors laugh because she’s female or something, but she does not step down. She takes on each of the warriors crushing them and throwing them off the mountain she then jumps over a sea of warriors fighting each one individually, instantly killing them all. Ashi is all covered in blood but she has defeated almost all of the warriors. However, she notices something wrong, One warriors still is still alive, and is preparing to kill samurai Jack with an arrow.
Ashi manages to make it up to the top of the mountain and blocks the arrow, and several others. Out from the shadows steps her trainer mother from back when she was evil. The mother says that she knew Ashi would fail because she lacked discipline.The two of them enter into hand-to-hand combat. The mother runs to attack Samurai Jack, but Ashi manages to throw an arrow, killing her instantly. When Jack wakes up in his old form from season 1-4 he sees Ashi on the ground, after she beat up all the warriors. She asks “what’s next?” He says: “Aku”
