Samurai Jack
 Phil LaMarr

Tired of incompetent bounty hunters, Aku directly challenges Jack to a one-on-one duel on the condition that Jack is not allowed to use his sword and that Aku is not allowed to use superhuman powers, the aid of evil minions or shape-shifting. Predictably, Aku breaks the rules but Jack arrived prepared.







Jeremy's Review

Lots of great hand-to-hand fighting and some amusing dialogue. Otherwise, it's a predictable episode that's somewhat disappointing since this is the one of the few (as well as the very last) episode in which Aku and Jack fight each other directly. B
