Yasuke is the legendary African samurai who served under the Japanese daimyō Oda Nobunaga. In this Netflix series, Yasuke is taken into an alternate feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic. Yasuke tries to turn his back from a violent past, but he is pulled back to protect a mysterious child who is targeted by dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.

LeSean Thomas directs Yasuke, while LaKeith Stanfield is voicing the legendary samurai. Studio MAPPA (Attack on Titan‘s final season, Jujutsu Kaisen) is producing the animation for the series.
