For those unaware, Samurai Champloo is basically what happened when Shinichiro Watanabe finished Cowboy Bebop, and had some money to try something new. That said, those Cowboy Bebop fans out there will be probably be interested in the show. True, this is clearly not Cowboy Bebop, but it is equally exciting and unusual. The story is set around three travelers: Mugen, Jin, (both Samurai's) and Fuu. Fuu, after coincidentally meeting Mugen and Jin, roped them into helping her find the "Samurai that smells of sunflowers." Little of the story actually centers on that Sunflower Samurai, except to keep them going from one unusual place to another. And the story is a bit different, because the whole story has hip-hop built into the show, from the rapping fighter, to Mugen's break-dancing fighting style. (Similar to the jazz/blues feel of Cowboy Bebop.) More then that though, the three travelers encapsulates a lot about what we'd like our `anti-hero' characters to be, and that fact helps push this show, as it pushes the envelope, (even if only slightly.) So, buy the set, and see whether they ever find that Samurai, or just watch or it for their funny squabbles. Read More
