I mostly enjoyed this movie as much as I enjoyed Afro Samurai (2007). I think the only thing I didn't like about it was the ending, mainly because I didn't understand it.

Afro Samurai starts off with a little reminder that possessing the #1 headband is a deal of torment. After the narrated introduction, we see Afro defeat a band of people. Apparently, however, Afro is meditating on his past.

I think Sio was able to take the #1 headband, because Afro was not wearing it.
Hehe. No deaths this time.

After the credits roll, we see what looks to be #2 arriving to fight a #1, Afro. The situation mirrors the past.
