Though completely different genres, I think you'll like Tokyo Majin if you enjoyed Samurai Champloo. The animation style is definitely the same, and you get the awesome fighting + action scenes. The cast of characters give off the same feel as well. Samurai Champloo's Mugen is just as cool as Tokyo Majin's Kyouichi. Tokyo Majin is much more dark and horror-ish, and there are much more supernatural fight scenes. Great music too.

Infinite Ryvius

Infinite Ryvius

In 2137 AD, the sun released a massive flare across the solar system, creating the Geduld, a dense field of plasma and debris. In the midst of a routine descent into the Geduld's upper layers, the training ship Liebe Delta is crippled by a terrorist attack, killing the trainers and command crew - and exposing the vessel’s military secrets, which may hold the survivors’ only hope. With nowhere to hide from their darkest fears, the young trainees must work together to navigate the ravages of a solar system filled with mysterious, powerful foes. Yet, as the ship is forced into greater isolation and its inhabitants become increasingly desperate, they must struggle to survive against not only the forces that pursue them relentlessly... but also each other.

Infinite Ryvius and Samurai Champloo are almost completely different from a narrative standpoint, but both share an unusual hip-hop soundtrack. Love it or hate it, the music in each is bold and distinctive. If you liked the music in one, you should check out the other.

Both series have stories vowen around a team of "space freelancers". While Outlaw Star is biased more towards ship-to-ship space combat and is somehow more lighthearted, Champloo is all about the mood and can be pretty serious sometimes.

Both Dead Leaves and Samurai Champloo are bright, colourful and unique in character design, plot, music and attitude. They are must sees for those after something highly individual and full of bounce.

Samurai Champloo and D.Gray-man aren't very similar, but both are dark; have comedic, emotional, and drama-filled scenes; and are about fighting. D.Gray-man is also about fighting a lot of demons, while in Samurai Champloo the main characters don't really have a special enemy.You'll probably like one if you liked the other.
