From the directors of Cowboy Bebop, Animatrix and Kill Bill animation.

Mugen's a buck wild warrior--violent, thoughtless and womanizing. Jin is a vagrant ronin--mysterious, traditional, and strong. These two fiercely independent warriors couldn't be more different from one another, yet their paths cross when Fuu, a ditzy female, saves them from being executed. Fuu convinces the two young men to help her find a mysterious samurai.

Product Description

Death, betrayal, and... hip hop! Mugen's a buck wild warrior: violent, thoughtless and womanizing. Jin is a vagrant ronin: mysterious, traditional, well-mannered and very strong. These two fiercely independent warriors couldn't be more different from one another, yet their paths cross when Fuu, a ditzy waitress, saves them from being executed when they are arrested after a violent swordfight. Fuu convinces the two vagrant young men to help her find a mysterious samurai "who smells of sunflowers." And their journey begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars cool hip hop samurai anime 6 April 2011
From the creator of cowboy bebop comes a funky sword swinging samurai tale.
Two samurai have to help a girl find a guy who smells of sunflowers the end lol :) but really thats the main plot.I say this because as plain as that may sound this anime is about the journey more than the destination.

Mugen-a wild/hot headed and unorthodox warrior + Jen-a well mannered and precise Ronni(spot the character clash) accompanied by a girl called fuu who helps these two escape execution in return to help her find this smelly samurai.

The fights are........some of the best I have seen in anime with amazing special combos by mugen.

each episode is something new and flesh and some times I was forgetting what their main goal was but that was because each story I found entertaining and some I found touched on serious subjects although I would say the majority of the time I was laughing at mugens hilarious foul mouthed one liners.

I did not want this series to end as it became so addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky!! 13 Oct 2011
While this is basically yet another re-telling of the age old Samurai tales from Japanese folklore, it is told in such a vibrant, funky, modern style that it seems fresh. Hip hop would never have readily occured to me to be a natural bedfellow for samurai shenanigans but it works so well I could almost believe Jin, Mugen and Fuu would be having MC battles in between arguing with eachother and fighting.

Written by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop) and brilliantly animated by Studio Manglobe this action packed and often hilarious 26 part series should be seen by all anime fans.

A sturdy boxset this contains 7 discs in slimline cases and a cool Samurai Champloo bandana. Extras are minimal unfortunately but the series is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp like the edge of a samurai sword 20 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
This is one of the best animated series ever. Period. The action sequences are slick, the music fits so well and not one episode fails to entertain. Like Cowboy Bebop, even SC's "filler" episodes are excellent. Seriously, I can't find one single thing that doesn't work in this series.
However, this is my third time watching it and the first time watching the dub. Usually I'm not bothered by dubs - most of the time the argument between subs and dubs seems a little like splitting hairs to me - but this one was slightly jarring. I think it's because all of the voices in the japanese version are excellent, and Mugen's fits his character perfectly. The american ones are adequate and certainly get better as the series progresses, but I'd stick with the original if you can. Some of the jokes and dialogue flows much better in japanese, and while the english language voices are very watchable (listenable??), Mugen is just brilliant with his original voice actor.
Both are on this DVD, which is a great buy for it's current price. I'm very jealous if you haven't seen it yet, and I dare you to try to stop watching once you start - I watched it in one sitting!

One of the best series of anime ever. Don't over think anything with this, just sit back and let yourself be carried along by the great visuals, funny story(s) and characters. Not all fun and games and encompassing many aspects of human nature, Samurai Champloo is enthralling - once I started watching I didn't want to stop no matter how late it got I wanted more!

Well I must say that I enjoyed this anime series very much. I first came across it 7 years ago when living in the states and I immediately recognised the artistic style and story setup as that of Cowboy Beebop, which simply put, is my favourite series of all time. Whilst not in the same league as Cowboy Beebop in terms of characters and story, there were several high points full of such majesty and beauty that took my breath away. One episode in particular called Misguided Miscreatans pt.2 has a haunting classical Japanese soundtrack that elevates that episode into something of a master piece. And yes, the entire sound track is truly wonderful. Much of the music was created by The late Japanese producer Nujabes and it is really worth seeking him out. You will not be disappointed. The songs range from sweet hip hop to soulful beats and it really shows that so much love was heaped upon this project.

There's no down side to buying this collection, it's reasonably priced on Amazon, the art work is truly stunning and the characters are entertaining if not as deeply involving as Spike and co. (in Beebop). But it's the music that won me over and for that I will add to the five star reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars thought space cowboys where a good mix? 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
well Shinichirō Watanabe does it again in this beauty yet fresh anime.

samurai champloo follows a story of young teenage girl called Fuu trying to find "the samuria who smells of sunflowers", a journey that will take her and friends across Japan during its Edo period

In company is rude b-boy fighting style Mugen and frosty ronin Jin who make a shaky alliance with Fuu at the start that comes into turmoil during the later parts of the series, due to all three very different yet very interesting personalities and back stories, you don't get a typical sense from other generic animes that they WANT/HAVE to work with each other but rather they are FORCED to work with one and other Mugen and Jin make it clear that they will either abandon Fuu or take out each other when they get the chance

Set in rural Japan during the Edo era this show is give a new flow to it, by adding hip-hop, and it works pretty well just as Watanabe added the wild west taste to space in Cowboy Bebop the hip-hip vibe and urban taste goes well with the settings in this anime, as you can first tell with mugens fight style of having break dancing moves to even the incredible sound track that sounds really amazing, you can tell its not just tacked on but that Watanabe perfectly synced the two opposites together.

You will find great detail in quality as well no episode is short from beautiful, theres only one filler episode and the voice acting is great as well, and throughout 95 percent of the show is humor, literally coming from everyone but still to say with this is still ultra violence and does have a more serious tone near the end just as shown in Watanabes other works

All in all if you like your anime, your afro samurai, your ninja scroll heck if you like hip-hop give this fresh amine a buy its amazing and besides the lack of extra content on the boxset the item is amazing, go buy it now!
