cool hip hop samurai anime,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samurai Champloo Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
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.
