Samurai Jack - The Complete Fifth Season

After years of waiting Samurai Jack's (Phil LaMarr) journey comes to a close in the fifth, and final, season of Samurai Jack. Even with Mako (Greg Baldwin steps in to voice Aku), this final installment is a gem. Set years after the last time we saw Jack, the season opens with the weary warrior separated from his magical sword and any hope of ever defeating Aku or returning home. The introduction of Ashi (Tara Strong), one of five deadly Daughters of Aku sent to slay the samurai, will help push Jack back on his path and lead to his final confrontation with the shape-shifting master of darkness.

Highlights include Jack's battle with the Daughters of Aku, Ashi's search for the samurai, a quest for the sword, the return of a hero, Aku's victory over Jack, and the series finale.

Available on Blu-ray and DVD, the set includes only a pair of short featurettes about the season while saving the more extensive features for the new 5-Season Blu-ray set.

[WarnerBros, Blu-ray $29.98 / DVD $24.98]
