Hey! Could anyone write down what's being said in the Samurai Jack Japanese intro?
Here's the link to the video, I would like to grasp some vocabulary from it but I am unable to understand what he is saying. Thank you!
I had the silly theme song stuck in my head today. So I decided to do this anyway, since it is only a few lines of fairly slow speech...
↓ Original English version ↓
"Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil!
But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me.
Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law!
Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!"

The Japanese version differs a bit from the original English, such as when Aku says「恐怖の大魔王として甦った」which means something like "was reborn as the great demon king of dread" (whereas in the English version he just says "unleashed an unspeakable evil"). But overall it's fairly similar. ^^
I take it you mean write down the Japanese that's being said, rather than the English translation of it? Because you could just watch the original English version to find out otherwise. :P
