J!NX, the premiere name in geek and gaming lifestyle clothing has partnered with FUNimation Entertainment and created four new slick, gritty designs that evoke as much attitude as the legendary Number One Headband!
SAN DIEGO, CA, JULY 1, 2009. As thousands of Anime fans descend on Los Angeles for Anime Expo 2009, San Diego based Jinx, Inc. cools down the summer months with a dynamic new licensing partnership. Afro Samurai and Afro Samurai: Resurrection blew up the ratings when they debuted on Spike TV, and continue to garner a loyal viewership across Youtube, Hulu, and Xbox Live. The hack-and-slash-to-a-hip-hop-beat is perfectly in line with the passionate attitudes already present in all that J!NX has to offer, so the pairing was a natural fit. The initial wave will be available for purchase at www.JINX.com/afrosamurai in early September, but you can head there now to get a glimpse of the shirts, all crafted by the talented J!NX design team.
"We have long been huge fans of Afro Samurai," declares Sean "Jinx" Gailey, Creative Overlord of the J!NX design team. "The amazing art style, the music, the story, everything about it resonates with the J!NX crew and we couldn't wait to put our spin on some Afro Samurai clothing."
