Afro Samurai: ResurrectionEdit
Much like Afro's swordmaster, Shichigoro believes that by hiding the headband he would stop all the killings, but once he meets Afro, he accepts his challenge because he desires to personally kill him for all that Afro did in the past. Shichigoro is eventually killed by Afro, who takes the Number Two headband from him after his death. It is worth noting that Afro didn't really want to kill Shichigoro due to the latter having a background similar to Afro and his father at the beginning of the series. This is manifested through Afro at first confronting him in a formal manner, displaying respect he rarely shows enemies. Shichigoro battles Afro to a standstill, proving to be his equal at the very least. Motivated by his sole purpose to save his father, Afro resorts to deception by pushing the DJ that had appeared earlier towards Shichigoro as he came around a corner and subsequently stabbing through the DJ and into Shichigoro's heart.
He is voiced by Liam O'Brien.
- Kotaro and Shichigoro seems to be based on Lone Wolf and Cub.
