A new Netflix show It’s over describes the life of an African Samurai living with the Nobunaga family. The film begins years after Lord Nobunaga’s death. Yasuke (Lakeith Stanfield) live in the same village and work as a boat. At the center of the story, Yasuke is a man who feels he has not been reconciled with his past life — a life he took pride in serving Lord Nobunaga. The soldier had a high position and was respected by his peers even though he was a foreigner.
Author Nick Jones Jr.. laid a good foundation Yasuke’s story, but after watching the show, there is a problem that confuses me. The established story was well done, Yasuke as a human being is also lifeless, inhuman. His face does not change often, and his voice is not pleasant. I know that many will not agree with me, and it hurts me to say, but – it is boring when they are surrounded by people who love it so much. It often sounds like construction was ahead of the adult.
Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. Flying Lotus and Krishna Bissessar’s recordings as well as songs beginning with Thundercat are excellent, and the artistic and visual effects of the production are well-structured.
Hopefully, by the second season (if any), fans will know more about Yasuke outside of his ordeal. Obviously, I’m interested in the show, but I can also agree that this is a great way to try to continue the legacy of a forgotten old man.
