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

What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...

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 Blood+ aren't very similar, but they both are a bit dark (more so in Blood+), have sword fighting and have emotional and drama-filled situations. I got the same feeling from watching both.
