The Director, LeSean Thomas, explains why he made a deliberate choice to focus on these other areas, and I can't fault him for that.
Mercedez Clewis sat down with director LeSean Thomas to discuss the mystery of Yasuke, creating a new hero, and why Thomas doesn't create anime for otaku.www.animenewsnetwork.com

Plus, in the first interview above, he states that there's really not a lot of knowledge about the actual historic figure available.
The fact that there isn't alot known about the real person gives a lot of leeway when doing something without the need for magic and mechs. It didn't stand out to me at all. I still hope it does well, and I hope the director gets to work on more projects. This obviously wasn't for me, and that's ok. I'm hardly the target audience for a lot of anime these days it seems.
