After seeing Cowboy Bebop and watched the movie, i’d decided to go on a rampage of all Shin'ichirō Watanabe series.
(Too bad Space Dandy is not on Cr )

But after seeing 2 episodes of Samurai Champloo i’m like ehhhhh, there’s something i don’t like about it that i don’t know what is it at all. Good thing is that the main character voice is the same as Hijikata from Gintama.

To all of you that watched the show. Should i continue it ??

If you didn't like it, don't feel obligated to watch it.

If you can't get into it, you can't get into it. There's no helping that. Samurai Champloo is a lot different from Cowboy Bebop, in that there is a plot, but it isn't all that deep. The overarching story isn't really realized until nearly the end, and it's often overwhelmed by the action and satire. And that could be what bothers you about it: the satire and pseudo-setting; it blends feudal Japan with modern elements and takes a lot of jabs at Samurai. But, unlike series like Gintama, Samurai Champloo is not wholly charging into the ridiculous, but usually has a serious tone with humor cutting in.

I really enjoyed the art and the fight scenes regardless of the plot. What I really enjoyed was hidden messages about destiny found in it. If you need me to specify, I can.

It's one of those "if you don't like it, wait a minute. It'll change." shows.

Spill out what you don't like about it.

As PandAndy said in his post that the main part of the story is actually towards the end. This title is episodic,there are different directors for each story and the stories are different depending on where they go in their journey, to find who they were looking for but in the end it will connect.

I liked it becuase it was different, catchy and silly most of the time, music and animation was awesome and the english ADR was amazing.

Hulu has space dandy and you can watch the free version here https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/space-dandy they are partnered with both Hulu and CR. but if you don't like it, you don't have to watch it. all of his works I have found to be spot on physics wise and an outstanding piece of work. anime planet has more of this things and if possible you should watch his latest works here on CR, a tribute to Blade Runner. it's a short work, but you can seriously tell he's behind it. best of luck and have some fun.
