This historically inaccurate hip-hop samurai anime is possibly the greatest show of the decade, though it's not surprising, seeing as its directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the director responsible for Cowboy Bebop.


The action scenes are slickly animated with cool angles and perfectly timed moves. The characters themselves are very different, Mugen is rash and violent, Jin is quiet and cool, while Fuu is a little ditzy, but together, they create one of the most unforgettable trios ever. Even the hip-hop soundtrack is a perfect fit for this show.

If you haven't watched this anime yet,
GO AND WATCH IT
It is truly awesome.
Being serious makes my brain hurt.

EDIT : The previous image didn't work.

And now for a short series of completely random images.

I loved everything about this anime!!!!!!! One of my favorites.
The transition of the scenes were awsome and the style~!! >.< I loved how the samurai
genre was mixed with graffitis and the chikichikis (I don't know what you call them.)

I loved the one with the graffiti brothers and the one on baseball.
It's so funny how bold they are using the historical reference, yet totally bending it.
Mugen and Jin are awsome as well :-) hehe...

No! I didn't get it at all! I remembered it being really creepy but I didn't know until you
mentioned it. I watched it over and you're right! I'm not familiar with Japanese history
but it's refering to the Nagasaki bomb. (and actually very obvious in the end)
Awesome!

I liked the one with the gay man from Holland and the reference to Vincent Gogh's
sunflower painting. (as I faintly recall) It's such a bullshit reference, I just had to
laugh. Samurai Champloo rules.
