Finally after 13 year break Samurai Jack has come to a end leaving fans both thankful and disappointed. Jack may have emerged triumphant, but fans complained that the finale felt incredibly rushed and didn’t match the overall tone the season had set for itself over the previous nine episodes.

“They really should have extended this to an hour episode, everything was just so anticlimactic and rushed, like Ashi just disappeared in a second, the final battle was over in a second everything just felt done too quickly,” one fan wrote in response to the ending “Overall a disappointing ending in my opinion.”

Many fans suggested that to make the finale better it should atleast be turned into an hour long episode instead of the usual 30 minutes. Which is a pretty standard tradition for shows to follow, allowing makers the chance to allow all of the supporting characters to say their goodbyes and wrap up the story without things feeling rushed.

“It felt rushed, poorly paced, and entirely too predictable. This really would have benefited from a longer finale or a longer season to flesh out the characters,” another fan wrote. “Like, why have that minute long joke with the Scotsman’s daughters if you know you’ll be rushed for the ending? The entire world and characters we came to love over the years really didn’t get much of a send-off at all.”

Something important to remember is that this was the ending that creator Genndy Tartakovsky wanted for Samurai Jack’s finale. Before the show even premiered, Tartakovsky told Entertainment Weekly that this was what he envisioned and, although he hadn’t seen the episode, he knew what was about to come and was more than pleased with the result.

“This is it. This is the definitive end, and it’s a great end,” Tartakovsky said. “I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve story-boarded it, and I think it’s super satisfying, and it should close the door for me for Samurai Jack.”

While many were let down by the finale — an episode they were waiting more than 15 years for — a number of fans felt pleased and emotional about Jack’s journey coming to an end.

However you may feel, Samurai Jack has finally come to an end after 16 years.
