Sum it up in a Sentence

Cowboy Bebop in Japan where instead of jazz, it's hip-hop.

Main Description

The three main characters during Edo period Japan meet up in the first episode on a quest to find a samurai who smells of sunflowers. The girl, Fuu, is the one who wants to find said samurai and drags along two swordsmen who "promised" to go along with her. Mugen is the wild, anything-goes freeloader while Jin is the disciplined ronin who wears glasses. Their journey is crossed with accurate periodical references interspersed with modern hip-hop culture as they trek through the country and encounter everything from the mild to the unbelievable.

If you haven't seen this shit, seriously, what the hell? Samurai Champloo is awesome and you should watch it. It appeals to every audience.


If you're itching for more Cowboy Bebop but don't care about it being in space, Samurai Champloo will satisfy. Has the same amount of episodic shenanigans and stand-alone adventures with the loose premise of a main storyline that concludes in the end. It's artsy and will satiate the (non-moé) Japanophile in you, and the battle scenes are realistic, gritty, and stay true to how violent they really are. --Willsun 09:47, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


I hated it. It's Cowboy Bebop, except there are two Spikes, and the Faye is completely worthless. They go off on a pointless quest. The first episode was kinda cool, but as it turns out, that was also the best episode. It'sll all a downhill ride from there.


Like Cowboy Bebop in feudal Japan and also worse. It's still a good watch though, though the episodes range in quality quite steeply. There are some real duds. The characters are less engaging and interesting than Cowboy Bebop as well.
