Shinichiro Watanabe has done it again. Ok, so I've only seen the first volume so far, and anyone who's seen Wolf's Rain can agree not all anime that starts amazingly ends amazingly, but I do have high hopes for this series.
Watanabe, one of the great deities of anime and provider of Cowboy Bebop- quite arguably one of the finest anime of all time- has now flicked back in time to create a new anime/music fusion in the form of Samurai Champloo, a slick, fresh, funny and generally pretty awesome series that plays out rebel samurai-style action to the beat of stylish hip hop.
Jin is mysterious, well-dressed, bespectacled and tends to look quietly p*ssed off about something most of the time. He's our resident bishie, so we can forgive him for that.
Mugen is mouthy, obnoxious, surprisingly skinny and needs a shave. The moment you see him start fighting, you'll be unable to tear your eyes away from the screen.
Fuu is cute, a little ditzy, smart and very determined. It's pretty unusual to come across a female anime character who doesn't fall into one of the cliched archetypes, but Fuu manages it, and I really like her- I think it was when she started blowing things up that she really grew on me, hehe.
The three of these utterly different strangers cross paths in a little restaurant, and the scene is set for a trio and an anime you'll get addicted to by the end of the first episode.
This is possibly the best series out this year, as far as is possible to tell this early in the series, at least; I've already used the word slick, and I'll use it again, because it really describes this show. The character designs are interesting and individual- none of the 'all characters looking the same, just with different hairstyles' stuff a lot of more recent anime has churned out.

Firstly let me explain the 3 stars. It doesn't deserve three stars. In fact it doesn't deserve five. Instead it should be a six, or even seven, star series. But once again we find the distributors selling them piecemeal for too much (considering a box set would only be about a tenner more).

Don't buy this version, save your money and see if you can get the whole series. If you love anime you wont' regret it. And if you don't love anime then see if you can sneak a view of this from someone else's collection, because this could be the show to convert you.

the quality of the animation dropped off sharply in the fourth and final episode on this first disc.
If you doubt me, and have this, watch episode 3 (Hellhounds for Hire Pt 1) and then 4 (Pt 2), back to back.
Many faces are off and in general it just looks sloppy by comparison. What's up with that?
I mean I guess the animation work is farmed out to different studios, but to my mind it really mars the product to have the
quality dip quite so sharply. I'm now in doubt about carrying on with this series.
If there are Champloo aficionados out there who have further sets or the complete collection, can you assure me that
this isn't the case throughout the remainder of the series? thank you in advance for any comeback on this one
