Brother 2 (二の字, Ninoji) is a fictional character and antagonist from the anime and manga series of Afro Samurai.


Afro Samurai[]

Brother 2 was the eyes of the Clan often seen scoping out Afro from a distance with a pair of high-tech binoculars. Usually Brother 6 was shown assisting him. All of his observations of Afro during his reconnaissance were reported to Brother 1 via cell phone. In combat, he was shown to use an extending Buddhist staff or kunai. When Otsuru turns against the Empty Seven for Afro's sake, it was Brother 2 who stabbed and killed her. Later when he was lying in wait to kill Afro, Afro surprises him from behind by swiftly poking his eyes and shoving his binoculars deep into the wounds. Likely the brutal manner of his execution was out of revenge for Otsuru.

In the manga, Brother Two was the man who lead the assault on Afro's sword school with a group of thugs. He ordered his men to collect the Number two headband and kill anyone who stood in the way. The ruthless attack left most except Afro and Jinno dead. Years later, when Afro reaches the Empty Seven base and starts mowing down their men and even his fellow monks. Brother 2 considers retreating to a safe village but Brother One, who was far more fanatical kills Brother 2 when he doubts the power of the headbands.
