  • Good soundtrack 6/5.
    The characters are all unique in their own ways and the soothing background music produced by Fat Jon and Nujabes makes it even better(RIP). The show is more of an artwork and everything about it is synergized so well. Bluntworthy anime and nothing is more cool than seeing samurais fight during the feudal Japan era.

  • There's something beautiful about rap + anime
    We love samurai champloo! Honestly, rap / hip-hop culture really goes hand-in-hand with samurai culture in a weird but wonderful way. Both grungy and realistic, this series is like a Japanese-style old western. This one is set in the edo era, and is fairly historically accurate as far as I know.

    I debated on giving this 4 stars, because there isn't a ton going on for side characters and ...

  • Definition of a Must Watch
    I found this anime from a co-worker of my father and what can I say. The dynamics, voice acting, Characters, and character development are amazing. The music is also on a level of its own, with music from Nujabes and Fat John you feel like you are an essential part of the unique world that is Samurai Champloo. Best anime I've watched and I feel that it should be seen by more. 20/10 Must Watch....

  • Ideal, Masterful Storytelling
    Don't usually write reviews... had to for this one.
    The dialogue, characters, storytelling, art, music- everything is extremely artistic and creates a nostalgic atmosphere after only a few episodes. Every episode has enough substance to stand alone. Deeper themes and life lessons lie underneath the whole "we're on a journey" thing, which makes it MUCH more enjoyable and re-watchable. 11/10 my 1st ...

  • Picked Up A Mint Condition Boxed Set Of This One Summer Back In High school, One of the Best Decisions I've Ever Made
    As the title may suggest, yes I indeed did stumble upon a box set of this show on one fateful encounter at a thrift store about seven years ago. I was new to anime at the time, but I'd heard this was one of the greats and bought it for a whooping five bucks. Honestly, it's one of the best decision I've ever made.

    Everything about this show bursts with color and personality. I mean what would ...

  • Best OST, Art & Concept
    First of all, Nujabes (Rest in Beats) did a really good job with the OST, along with other great artists, such as MINMI, Ikue Asazaki, Shing02, Fat Jon & the others. Next, the concept was amazing. Modern urban hip-hop scene mixed with Edo Samurai & comedy. This is the best anime that I've ever seen. It made me laugh, it made me cry & feel like as if I was part of this amazing world. Also, the art ...

  • What an amazing show
    Its been a long journey through the 26 eps... and I've loved every single one. Since the first one, I have been pulled in by the plot and spit out with the story in my head. This show definitely will stay in the top 5 animes I've watched forever.

    Bad/neutral:

    Like 1 or 2 boring episodes that amount to a lot of character development and perseverance... so neutral/bad.

    Some racism ...

  • Mugen is my anime boyfriend, you can't have him.
    Just because it's older doesn't take any of its awesomeness away. Wonderful animation. Great action. Downright hilarious at times. I've yet to come across a series this entertaining before or after. There's no risk you'll be wasting your time with Champloo. Of all the anime characters I've loved, I love Mugen the most.
