    SAMURAI CHAMPLOO RAP! (Review!?)
    Rewind to a time mix mastered with the rhyme,
    with a hip hop that jumps like Cowboy Bebop.
    Samurai slicing with a single edged sword,
    The Edo period, a time with feudal lords.


    Mugen, Jin, and Fuu, they're an awkward team.
    Smelling air for sunflowers, don't you see?

    I LOVE this anime, and you should too!
    I hope you enjoy Samurai Champloo!

    The soundtrack alone makes this anime worth the watch
    There's isn't a lot to say. Samurai Champloo is just an amazing show, with colorful and fun characters, plots and twists, and the soundtrack is just outstanding. Every episode is a new story with the main story progressing nicely with it. The dubbed version is very good too!

    The best soundtrack in anime
    This show starts off with a bang right from the beginning and even though it is a simple plot the adventures that the main characters go through every episode are filled with life lessons and morals that can be related to in the real world during that time period. They're all very likeable and Jin and Mugen are in my top 5 anime swordsmen list. The soundtrack for this anime is so damn beautiful i ...

    One of the best; a true classic.
    Fantastic soundtrack, animation, character development, humor, atmosphere, and style--this anime has it all. For me, this show sits as an equal with greats such as Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and many others. I would highly recommend.

  • This anime was a classic.
    Fell in love with the characters right away. Great story, great everything. If only there were more episodes! Character development was really solid, and the plot unfolded very very nicely. Jin, Mugen, and Fuu each have individual traits that strongly contrast yet their bond grows strong. Reminiscent of Cowboy Bebop in that sense.

  • action packed and hilarious
    I put this on my top 10!!
    The characters were interesting and fun. Their back stories were good.
    The plot had a good pace and made sense. Their adventure was fantastic.
    Even though it had a lot of action, it was also fun and entertaining.
    Good ending.

    Did you like Cowboy Bebop?
    This is like that, but with Samurai and hip hop. Really freakin' good. go watch. The characters are endearing and the soundtrack is phenomenal. The action keeps you on the edge of your seat at all times and there is never a dull moment. Fantastic art style.

  • You want blade fighting action? This is it.
    Excellent animation especially during, but not limited to, the fight scenes: Great still camera shots with fluid animations where you get to watch 'the fight' instead of watching the camera 'fighting'.

    Good sound track/effects.

    Reasonable character/plot development that makes a coherent story for a journey instead of making excuses for fighting scenarios.

    Surprisingly good English dubs - ...

  • This is the anime that other shows want to be.
    If you have watched any fighting or samurai anime in the last 12 years it was probably influenced by this. Even Avatar the last air bender creators cite this show as a reference. It has the most amazing fight scenes you will ever watch. I want to say so much but instead I will say this, go experience it for your self. You won't regret it.

  • A 5-star worthy classic
    This one's amazing. The soundtrack, the characters, the focus, the vibe. Everything.

    Samurai Champloo follows Mugen, Jin and Fuu, who quest across a hip-hop fueled Edo-era Japan to find the "samurai who smells of sunflowers".

    Along with Cowboy Bebop, this a one I would suggest to anyone. Just try it. It sticks to you like glue from the start.
