Samurai Champloo is a Japanese anime series developed by Manglobe. It featured a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, character designer Kazuto Nakazawa and mechanical designer Mahiro Maeda. Samurai Champloo was Watanabe's first directorial effort for an anime television series after the critically acclaimed Cowboy Bebop. It was broadcast in Japan on Fuji TV on May 20, 2004 and ran for twenty-six episodes until its conclusion on March 19, 2005. The story is set during a fictional version of Japan in the Edo period with an anachronistic, predominantly hip-hop, setting. It follows Mugen, an impudent and freedom-loving vagrant swordsman; Jin, a cool-headed and stoical ronin; and Fuu, a brave young girl who asks them to accompany her in her quest across Japan to find the "samurai who smells of sunflowers". Samurai Champloo was critically acclaimed, and the series was dubbed in the English language and licensed by Geneon Entertainment for releases in North America. Funimation Entertainment began licensing the series after Geneon ceased production of its titles. It was also licensed for English releases in the United Kingdom by MVM Films, and in Australia and New Zealand by Madman Entertainment.

An average story told by amazing detail, easily loveable 3 main characters, great soundtracks with combining samurai era and hiphop. You want more after watching and completing it but that feeling makes you love this anime more. It's short. it's lovely and deserves to be seen.

This is an absolutely amazin anime. The characters are well written, the group is fitting well and the adventures and different goals are absolutely amazing. I was close to tears as it ended. For those of you, who haven't seen it yet: Check it out, take your time and enjoy the first time watching... I wish I could do it again!

Mixture of: Cowboy Bebop + Afro Samurai = Samurai Champloo (Awesome Soundtrack, great characters and an amazing storyline!)
