>>113924167>Aku just made his presence be known across the galaxy, they would still exist even without him.
The second episode of the show has Aku telling an alien race "lol, yeah I drained the oceans from your planet, I'll give you new lands to settle though if you build countless statues in my honor. Also, I'm a torture your prince for a bit." That's a little bit more than making your presence known. Terraforming and resettling entire species while forcing them into slave labor is gonna change some things.>Also you just said yourself, Aku has maybe killed entire planets for not bowing down to him and Jack prevented that
This is true and if Jack actually weighed the suffering of all the people Aku hurt against all the lives of his friends and others throughout the galaxy that would actually be a real interesting debate to watch play out. It would have been really interesting to see Aku make Jack hesitate in front of a time portal by bringing that up.
But that's not what happened.
Instead, Jack's constant choice to spare the people of the future, relatively small numbers of people at that, gets shat on by the surprise death of everyone who existed as a result of Aku's influence, which would probably be 90% of the population in Aku occupied territory. And that's frankly being generous.
