Afro Samurai is clearly quite unique, but not only will it be immensely graphic, it should embrace another trait common to anime films: scantily clad girls. Or, as is the case here, not really "clad" at all. However, it's not really what you expect; these topless ladies aren't in this scene to please...they're here to attack and ultimately, die a terrible death at the hand of the "hero." This is absolutely out of control, as the player will clearly slash the hell out of half-dressed women, and that alone is guaranteed to spark controversy. Of course, it appears as if the ladies start the fight in this preview, but the anti-game activists will only see naked ladies dying. The developers are taking a definite risk!
