I mean seriously, it is! I mean, Samurai Champloo isn't copying it at all, but the concept is very similar. Cowboy Bebop has a futuristic setting with a vibe that makes it feel like it's from the past, with all the jazz and blues, while Samurai Champloo is set in the past with a vibe that makes it feel like it's from the future because of all the hip-hop, rap, and beats playing. It's the same idea, both with a different feel however, but that concept is what makes them so good. Personally I like Cowboy Bebop better, but Samurai Champloo is my second favorite anime. Also, Steven Blum does the voice of the main character for both animes: Spike Spiegal for Cowboy Bebop, and Mugen for Samurai Champloo.

Anyone else notice any similarities?

Well that really doesn't surpise me, Shinichro Watanabe directed Cowboy Bebop, writer was Keiko Nobumoto, and Watanabe also wrote & directed Samurai Champloo. He also wrote the manga.

Yeah they're both made by the same people...they're deliberately done in the same style.

after reading the other comments i see what your point is. but they're completely different at the same time. a big start is that samurai champloo grips you in and you get really involved with the characters, where as cowboy bebop was kinda dull... but hey, that's just my opinion.
