    He's killed living beings before but Genndy has said several times that he's never killed a human before. That's the specific issue with him killing one of the daughters that Genndy said this season would dwell on. Also he didn't kill the Viking, he freed him from the curse and he aged rapidly and died of old age. If anything he mercy killed him which is kinda different, I guess.

    Tooooo be fair it's actually sampling it, not just an "ode" to it, haha.

    He's been in a few ads already, and Genndy said he and the Guardian would show up.

    He's also killed humans before in the comics, though I don't really count those since they are clearly not canon.

    I'm betting this shot will be from a flashback to a tragic last battle together, which could have happened a few years before the first episode. :rip

    That kind of already happened though when the Sammy Davis dude just up and called Aku on his phone.

    Hopefully Jack didn't lose it.

    Although I didn't see it in the promo for the next episode.

    I like how despite the darker, more grim tone, the show still has the levity of Aku being Aku.

    Jack and Aku's "inner monologues" were a fun contrast, honestly. I appreciate that they're still throwing in humor.

    Not to mention the normal Aku theme.

    Yep. Aku being a childish psychopath was always a huge part of his charm. Plus, it's pretty cool to see him crazier now than he already was. Aku, the ultimate evil and ruler of all, is bored to tears, and now just wants Jack dead. I don't think we'll be seeing Aku playing around nearly as much anymore. No more slightly moving a stick to change Jack's path.

    I do hope Aku gets back to bussiness soon though.

    As entertaining as he was, he can't be Aku without his menacing moments, and Aku's had a fair share of those, he's one of the few villains who can pull off being funny and intimidating in the same scene, though I imagine we won't see that because Greg Baldwin is nowhere near as dynamic nor has the same energy as Mako.

    He sounded perfectly fine to me. In fact, had his name not been listed on the credits I would swear they brought Mako back from the dead to voice him. I can't wait to see what he does with the character later. You have to remember, Aku in this bit was not the Aku we are used to because he's given up.

    Anyway, my favorite Aku moment has to be when he challenged Jack to a duel and was like, "If you try to just attack me I will tranform and fly away while saying, 'I will get you next time samurai," and then the whole thing will start all over aga... I'll get you next time samurai... see what I mean?!"

    Jack Versus Aku is my favourite episode, from his hilarious human form, to him ordering a bounty hunter like ordering a pizza, ("I think I'm in the computer...") to his fucking weird minions. (little skeletons with ginger hair, horns, and sneakers with socks on)

    "That pillar did not move by itself, Aku!"

    "Yes it diiiiiiiid!"

    It's one of my absolute favorites, but I think I like the Shadow Ninja episode the best when Jack had to dress in white to fight him. Jack and the Rave is damn awesome too.

    It's hard to pick a favourite when there's so many great episodes.

    True, but I can definitely say two of my least favorite episodes are the ones with the farting dragon and the baby episode.

    I have fond memories of playing the Rave flash game on cartoonnetwork.com when I was younger. That and less fond memories of sucking ass at the Teen Titans Street Fighters game.
