XCVII (Samurai Jack) – Overly Animated Podcast #357

By: Justin Cummings


Justin Cummings and Michelle Anderer discuss the April 22nd episode of Samurai Jack, “XCVII”.

I'm currently studying Communication at Lynchburg College with an emphasis in Electronic Media and a double minor in business and gender studies. I've been a huge fan of animation since I was little and thus have very eclectic tastes. Outside of animation I love Survivor, comic books, and a whole treasure trove of other things.



  1. John aka Resender aka Johnny Bravo says:

    Also 1 of the talking dogs looked like Astro

  2. John aka Resender aka Johnny Bravo says:

    Ashi looked sexy in her leaf outfit,also so many memories, the woolies the talking dogs

  3. Chris says:

    Anybody noticed Astro the dog and robot Popeye?

  4. Robby Williamson says:

    I’m fine with whatever direction they decide to take Jack and Ashi, so long as it’s executed well. I don’t see the age difference as a huge deal, considering pairings with comparatively young characters and much older ageless characters who appear young is a fairly common thing in fiction. i.e., Greg Universe and Rose Quartz. Whether or not they could craft a believable romance in a few episodes is a reasonable concern.

  5. Steve Zec says:

    You know the one time I remember that word to be used on a animated show was a season 3 episode of South Park “Cimpokomon”, anyone remember that?
