Allow us to reintroduce you to Eric N’Jadaka Killmonger.
He likes anime.
He is also a highly trained killer…hence the whole Killmonger name. He is also the cousin of King T’Challa of Wakanda. T’Challa’s father, King T’Chaka, killed Eric’s father (N’Jobu), also T’Chaka’s brother.
Are we allowed to show that?
After witnessing the murder of his father, Eric desired revenge. He spent his life playing a long game to get that revenge.
You sure are. <3
Revenge is a common theme in anime, and knowing Killmonger is a lover of anime, you know he has a playlist of anime songs to keep him motivated. After all, music makes hard work more fun; indeed, it works the same for revenge. Right?
After much discussion with my illustrious council( Victor Dandridge Jr, Joseph Davis, and Matt Portter), we carefully curated Killmonger’s Anime OST Playlist for Successful Revenge! These songs are from anime; we are confident this warrior enjoys. And, if anime can help Eric, it can help you. Whether it is revenge, a good workout, during work, these tunes will keep lasered focus. Or distract you. Results may vary.

Just Communication will get your blood pumping and make you feel confident.
Cowboy Bebop – The Real Folk Blues Ending Theme – For When You Have to Sacrifice Your Girlfriend
Sometimes plans do not go as intended. You forget your map, get the guard schedule incorrect, or your girlfriend/minion gets taken as a hostage. What is a man to do? There are many options, but this one is for you if you select to shoot your girlfriend and her captor. Yes, the pain of losing someone you love is a deep one. Let the sweet healing sounds of Real Folk Blues bring you closer to acceptance. For it is better to have love and have lost than not to have loved at all. You will be missed, nameless woman.
MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM WING Original Motion Picture Soundtrack – Kurayami Karano Tsukai · Kow Otani – For When You are Newly Single

Today is going to be a good day. After Dark is the celebration song for a plan going smoothly on the track. Tony suspects nothing; after all, you saved his life! Everything is coming up Killmonger!

You have used the skills of a samurai to get you to this very moment. Now top it all off with a one-liner that will send chills down their bones.
