Animation collective Three Legged Legs' (previously) newest piece, Samurai (embedded quicktime here, High Def direct download here) is a really beautiful looking short cartoon in Japanese. Warning to those fearing advertising, the piece was sponsored by GE, although it shows no branding or GE messaging of any kind.) Via.

I read the post six times, and each time I read it as "Animal Collective." I'm an idiot.

"Contrary to what you may have heard, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It is Three Legged Legs riding on top of a shark sitting on top of a dinosaur, throwing snakes that shoot lasers from their eyes."

Downloading the HD version now. Can't wait!

meh. Don't really like the Samurai Jack style.

1:43 sign is:

-ous Monster(s)

2:37 Mr Kaimu whips out his jinrikisha license

'kaimu' in the Japanese is the compound 皆無.

which is the characters for 'minna' (everyone) and 'mu' (not).

Very cute movie. Loved the tiny ninjas.

See, I love Samurai Jack's style - and this seems a fairly blatant (and sub-standard) rip-off of Samurai Jack in both style and content.

You'd be better served just (re-)watching Ninjai.
