Yasuke – The Pilot’s Club 4

This month we take a look at the pilot episode of an anime called Yasuke. Loosely based on a real person of the same name, Yasuke follows an African warrior who served under the Japanese Daimyo in the Sengoku period. Now, 20 years later, the retired swordsman finds himself helping a woman and her sick child, who has magical powers, to go see a special doctor. The task of protecting this sick child however, is pulling Yasuke back into his old ways.

The Whatnauts Pilot’s Club is a podcast all about the first episodes of television shows and the many reasons why they may or may not be worth a watch. Every month we pick a different pilot episode to watch and then discuss it here on our show. We release these episodes first and foremost to our Patreon supporters on our $3 tier and above. Then, two years later we release these episodes to a wider audience on a public feed. So if you wanna catch up on two years worth of episodes, our Patreon is the place to do that.
