Sio ( シヲ, Shiwo) is a fictional character from anime Afro Samurai and the main antagonist in Afro Samurai: Resurrection. She is the younger sister of Jinno.



Sio liked Afro as a child, but due to the murder of her adopted family, she has a resentment (bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly) towards him. Sio subsequently blames Afro for the murder of her adopted family even though he was not directly linked to their death.

Afro Samurai: ResurrectionEdit

In Afro Samurai: Resurrection she convinces Kuma/Jinno to attack Afro. Once she and Kuma finished him they took the Number One Headband and the jaw of Rokutaro (Afro's father).

Sio then proceeded to resurrect Rokutaro (prematurely), and then had him fight Afro. He then nearly killed Afro much to the delight of Sio, though Afro survived and defeated the clone of his father in the end. Kuma/Jinno realized that what they had done was wrong made an attempt to kill Rokutaro, but was easily dispatched and subsequently mutilated by Rokutaro. Sio tried to save him but she was killed along with him, due to Kuma/Jinno having been used as a shield by Rokutaro.
