Samurai Champloo is honestly,a great anime,which is..well...great!
What plot? After the first episode,you already know how the plot is going to unfold,and its just the matter of you watching all 26 episodes to see it through. The way you think the relationship between Fuu, Mugen and Jin will progress will either be right, or wrong. Mine was wrong,so it was refreshing to see how their relationship ended up. While the story was pretty straight forward,there some episodes with slight twists that made it interesting.
The animation was simply a treat. From backgrounds,to movements,it was a visual treat. The characters did look sloghtly generic,but hey,it didnt matter. It is a gorgeous anime.
Shit....the music was just fantastic. From the first,to the last second,the musical score was perfect for series,as it was a Hip Hop themed anime. Fantastic. If you love Hip Hop,you simply cannot pass this up. If you're not a fan of the genre,its still great,and you might just appreciate the music anyway.
Apart from the music,the charaters are what really make this anime a treat to watch. Watching the character developement of each individual character was fantastic,as well as watching their relationships with each other. Each character,had their own little thing. Like Mugen could not go even a single episode without saying "Who the hell are you?!" or Jin would occasionally say "Mmm..Umai!" while eating, and Fuu had that little flying squirrel.
Overall,I'd say this is 1 anime that you shouldnt pass up. Its funny,has fantastic characters, and should keep you thoroughly entertained the whole way through. I recommend it to anyone and every one.
overall score: 9/10
