Synopsis:

Many years have passed since Afro fought to become the number one samurai and succeeded in avenging his father's murder. Living quietly and without violence, Afro maintains a quiet life until his peace is shattered by an old enemy Jinno and a mysterious woman. Together the two of them take the Number One headband from Afro as well as his father's decayed skull. Promising to torture him, the woman challenges Afro to seek out the Number Two Headband. Only then may he challenge her and grant his father peace once more. Who is this woman who wishes so much suffering on Afro, and how many lives must he take before he may once again put violence behind him?

Samurai Champloo

Samurai Champloo

Samurai Champloo is all about style, from the dj-style scratching scene changes to the hip-hop-inspired soundtrack to the eclectic character design. Mugen's fighting style is a funky meld of capoeira and limb-cutting, and Jin is the dramatic foil; he is all steel and old-school samurai style. What binds them together is the desire to test each other's abilities, and a promise to a girl named Fuu: to find the samurai that smells of sunflowers, who plays a pivotal role in her past. Together they travel through edo-era Japan, finding battle and comedy wherever they stop.

zuko

because both present the story of a different type of samurai that doesn't follow the rules and guides his life according to his own believes. In addition both have really great fight scenes that uphold the legendary status of the samurai.

Theta

Nothing really duplicate Samurai Champloos blend of samurai and hip-hop.  Afro Samurai comes close.

Thrawn

Samurai, hip-hop overtones and tunes, stylish action and badass characters. Both are great fun and have a nice mix of feudal Japan samurai and modern age technology.

Basilisk

Basilisk

Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?

These are both well animated entries in the samurai genre that rate poorly.  Mature storylines and elaborate action scenes are sure to please fans of the genre.

Both series feature Bad-ass swordmen with no shortage of action or blood. If you enjoy furious action and lurid dismemberment, neither series will disapoint.

The main characters in both these shows seem to have nothing better to do with their time then kill things, or be attacked by people. Both these shows are dark, full of action, and includes buckets of gore/blood, but still has a few scenes of comic relief.
