Samurai Champloo (サムライチャンプルー Samurai Chanpurū?) is a Japanese animated television series consisting of twenty-six episodes. It was broadcast in Japan from May 20, 2004, through March 19, 2005, on the television network, Fuji TV. Samurai Champloo was created and directed by Shinichirō Watanabe, whose previous work, Cowboy Bebop, earned him renown in the anime and Japanese television communities. The show was produced by studio Manglobe.

List of Characters



Plot Summary: Mugen is a fierce animal-like warrior with a unique Bboying (break-dance) inspired fighting style. Jin has a more traditional style but don’t think of this as a weakness because his skills are amazing. The two contrasting samurai warriors are far from friends, yet their separate paths seem to cross anyways. Mugen is wandering aimlessly through the city when he stumbles upon a teahouse where he meets Jin and Fuu (A ditzy waitress, but don‘t think she doesn‘t have anything hidden up her sleeves). Fuu convinces them both to come with her in search of a mysterious samurai that smells like sunflowers and their journey begins. This modernized hip-hop tale breaks the barriers of the common, historical, samurai anime.

Genres: action, adventure, comedy, drama
Themes: historical, samurai
Episodes: 36
Age Rating: Mature

I just saw the first episode tonight on Adult Swim. It was really different with all the modern music in an old time show. I really liked all the action but I hope that all the episodes are not mostly fighting like this one. The show seems good and I can't wait till the story gets going.

This show was awesome!!!!!

Watanabe-sensei did it again!!!

The fighting was awesome, characters had a lot of personality, and the story seems interesting so far.

Oh, and zarpia, the first episode comes on again this Thursday at 12:30.

The dubs aren't all that bad. I personally liked Jin's VA the best. Mugen just reminded me of Spike too much, so it was hard for me not to think of Spike every time he said something. Fuu was just as irritating in english as she was in Japanese,(in my opinion) so no real change there. I think they did a good job with it, and I can tell it will get better with time.

I really like it, it'll probably rack up to one of my fav animes! *not surpassing FMA, naturally tongue.gif ) But anyway, it's chalk full of humor and awesomeness. Can't wait to see more!

I really liked it! It doesn't hold a candle to FMA but it'll at least keep me going during finals week. It's got a really intersting style of animation and is kinda a nice change. I liked all the modern rap influences like the break dancing and such but the little annoying record scratch thing that they did when they changed scenes got old really fast. Other than that I thought it was an awesome show! Not to mention that Jin wears glasses and still kicks major ass lol! Yeah for us four eyes!

Eh, it was alright. I've seen better, but I've seen worse too. They changed scenes a lot. But I agree with Martel- Jin is awesome.

I have seen the first 5 eps (original, not dub) and it is pretty good so far. I will continue watching it after I am finished the FMA series. I like Mugen's voice in japanese... I am not sure I would want to hear the same VA for Spike to do Mugen. I don't even want to hear the main girl's dubbed voice >__<;

I'm not sure how to rate it. The animation and fight scenes were excellent, like the style, but the transitions between different scenes got annoying fast. Guess I'll have to wait and see how the story shapes up. Jin does seem to be shaping up to be quite the bad ass, and Mugen does look like Spike, heheh. I still like his character design, though, it's a cool hair style.

I thought the dub was pretty good, actually. Mugen does have a very unique voice, and then, Fuu has an uber cute hyper voice, so of course it's difficult to recreate. But I must say, Pioneer/Geneon is getting much better.
