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.

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.

The two main connecting factors of R.O.D. and Samurai Champloo are style and animation. Style-wise they are alike in being different from most shows - R.O.D. is thick with a sort of western, James Bond-ish style that oozes out of it from the funky opening theme to the memorable cast. Samurai Champloo is all about the style which it has all it's own and is unlike anything out there.

More importantly, these two shows have the most well-animated fight scenes around. Samurai Champloo uses high-energy, over-the-top battles and fluid, stylistic animation for a completely unique experience. R.O.D. has equally great animation and uses the creativity of it's characters' abilities to its full advantage. Either is an eye-popping fun ride.

Both of these anime are of the action/comedy genre. While Trigun has a deeper plot, Samurai Champloo excels with hilarious situations and exciting fights. No matter which you've seen, I'm quite certain you'd like the other as well.

Both of these animes are about a group of three strangers that meet in the most random fashion possible. They then set out to accomplish the quest of one of there group member. As time pass the groups become friends with there own and unic relations.

Both have there very unic style and humor, but both are bassed on the characters within the group.
