Japanese anime series following Mugen (voice of Kazuya Nakai), a disreputable, wild samurai warrior, and Jin (Ginpei Sato), a mysterious, dignified ronin. When the two warriors cross paths and become involved in a violent swordfight, they find themselves as mismatched comrades on a quest to help young waitress Fuu (Ayako Kawasumi) track down an elusive samurai.

From beginning to end i loved this series, its one of my favourites and for good reason. It combines all out action, an epic storyline, a fantastic cast, enveloping characters and a good sense of humour.

Episodes varied in style and whilst some were genuinely heart-breaking others were poignant and optimistic. The comedy in this anime is also a highlight, its a fitting touch and is done just right.

I would defy anyone not to enjoy this series and would reccomend anyone with the slightest interest in anime to buy Samurai Champloo and prove me wrong. Its an adventure through like no other and one i will always watch, again and again.

Samurai Champloo - one of the best anime series out there for a more mature audience. It has one caveat - it needs a little time to properly get into, as its arguably too slow initially.

Whilst the character development is a decidedly slow burn affair, by the end of the series climax, you are thoroughly invested in the characters, and ride their highs and lows with them.

The fight scenes are excellent - they have all the zing, vibrance and fluidity of Cowboy Bebop fights (Spike's fights in particular) - and the contrasting styles of the two fighting protagonists is nicely done.

The wacky sound track did little for me - it felt like an attempt to keep the whole Cowboy Bebop design ethos rolling, and whilst it works spectacularly well with Cowboy Bebop, here it falls flat. After watching the bulk of the series, it had nevertheless grown on me a little, but it still feels tacked on just to be wacky, hip and cool ( and earn plaudits like CB ).

All in all definitely worthy of watching and keeping in your library. Cowboy Bebop is better, but then, I doubt if that will ever be bettered.

Personally I watched the first couple of episodes, before, disappointed it wasn't a match for Bebop, went off for six months watching other things. Giving it another go and sticking with it, I found the series was a real gem - one I nearly overlooked - which just gets better and better as it goes on. By the end of it you don't want it to finish !

A fantastic series with wonderful imagination and sublime artwork.

I bought this when i found out it was created by the same team behind the epic "Cowboy Bebop" series and it does not disappoint. A great character development along with an overall running theme of revenge make this one of my top anime's of all time. Although at first it does start off slow and i struggled to get into the emotions of the characters it slowly but surely comes into its own. This been a good thing as you appreciate it so much more and have a good replay cycle.

The drawing style of it all is also very stark and bright and is directed very well. Certain scenes either set in the rain or moonlight also work so well in setting the tone of the piece.

I would explain the storyline but other reviewers have done it justice and i would just be repeating them.

So again, a wonderful series with many small subplots and one final epic last three episodes. Would fully recommend buying does not dissapoint.

First, just thought I'd better comment on the first review: I hated Ninja Scroll, too much random porn for my liking. Samurai Champloo is, in my opinion, better for action AND isn't so graphic you'll feel embarrassed watching it.

Ninja Scroll comparisons aside, Samurai Champloo is undeniably awesome. Jin, Mugen and Fuu are well thought-out characters, not your one-dimensional heroes at all. The drawing and animation are beautiful without being showy (no CGI here), and the soundtrack is in an amazingly anachronistic hip-hop based style. The storyline is great, and the side-stories which make up most of the series are by turns funny, thought-provoking, gripping and thoroughly enjoyable. To cap it off, the fight scenes are incredible, with Mugen and Jin's contrasting styles creating something slightly different from most samurai anime.

So, great soundtrack, drawing, animation, characters, storyline (and sub-plots), swordplay, humour, and the occasional thought-provoking scene. I couldn't recommend this more!

I've been a fan of Shinichiro Wantanbe's animes for some time, but for me, this is the very best of his work. The depth of the characters, the exciting plot, the gritty, realistic (by anime standards) fight scenes and brooding visual style are all his trademarks, but what makes Champloo stand out from other animes, is the clever use of modern hip-hop fused with traditonal japanese folk music. It perfectly complements the plot and concept of the series, and helps to tell the story as much as the dialogue.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this series truely stands the test of time, you wont regret your purchase!
