Artist Creates An Alternate Ending For Samurai Jack
Samurai Jack’s Alternate Ending By Nalem
As I’m aware, some of you might already know this, but Genndy Tartakovsky cult classic series featuring a samurai that goes by the name of Jack recently returned to the small screen with its fifth and final season. To recap the series for some of you who may not be familiar with it, Samurai Jack, having been flung far into the distant future by the evil shape-shifting master, Aku, is now on a quest to go back to the past from which he came from in order to undo the future that Aku has created.
The series originally ran from August 2001 until its cancellation in September 2004. The show would return in March of 2017 and much to the delight of fans everywhere the show did not disappoint. With the release of Samurai Jack’s fifth season, the show would finally give us fans the conclusion to the series we had all been looking forward to all these years. Even though Samurai Jack’s return came with a 50 year time jump and was much more mature in tone and nature compared to its Cartoon Network days it still maintained its charm and much beloved and unique art style that ensured the series would feel like a natural conclusion to all the fans who grew up watching the series. Even though it has been off the air for more than a decade.
This past Saturday Samurai Jack would go onto air its final episode titled “CI” and with came the conclusion to Jack and Aku’s story. So, how did series creator Genndy decide to close end Samurai Jack? Why, not with anything flashy but with a very bittersweet ending that left fans truly feeling for Jack. The tears were a flowin’ all over social media following the release of Samurai Jack’s last episode. That is until Nalem from nalemart.com stepped in.
For a little bit more context watch this video of how Samurai Jack came to an end. However, there will obviously be spoilers so be warned.
Damn, talk about heartache. I’ll be damned however if I didn’t mention just, how much I admire this ending. However, not everyone shares my viewpoints which is where Nalem comes in. She took it upon herself to envision an ending where, given all that Jack has been through, he manages to find some sort of happiness with help of everyone’s favorite drunk granddad, Rick Sanchez from Rick & Morty. So read on to see how a lot of fans would say, that this is how Samurai Jack should have ended.
