Milkiyo's Samurai Champloo Tv Review

Rated: 8

Samurai Champloo has serious and exciting martial arts but overall it can be quite comical as well.

There are 26 episodes altogether along with multiple flashbacks. The flashbacks may be a little bit confusing at first but as the story evolve, it becomes more meaningful. This gives off a good effect of suspense and also makes you feel that you are part of the story as well.

It was also directed by Shinichiro Watanabe of Cowboy Bebop so there may be a bit of resemblance in both the shows. However, the concept of this anime is very much enjoyable that sometimes it will leave you craving for more. Pretty addictive.

Samurai Champloo passes off as an enjoyable anime overall though it lacks in certain moral aspects that it must fulfill if it ever wanted to be a family video.

Samurai Champloo is off da hook anime! This series is definite must see. This has plenty of comedy and drama that appealed to me in many ways. I thought the animation designs were awesome in every way and the characters were over the top! I would really recommend this (for those who haven't seen it yet)!

Pretty good show, yet didn't last long on Toonami, where I originally saw the show for the first time. I finished it later and I like it for the most part, but I had to be in the mood too watch becuase it really didn't grab my attention.


A bit slow in certain areas, but It's music and animation are top notch, and manage to provide a cool Hip-Hop atmosphere throughout the show, making it refreshing and different considering it's about samurais.

A comedic martial arts story, which has elements of drama here and there. Fuu's quest for sunflowers keeps things moving forward and the side stories along the way help to develop each of the characters.

I've seen this show twice, it is awesome. I loved the fights of both Mugen and Jin, I liked Mugen's wild way of fighting. But I also loved the fact that Jin was very calm and precise most of the time when he fought as well. This show is incredibly funny.


I loved this too <3 Funny and everything...I cried so much watching this...It got me very emotional in many ways...
I don't know what to think about the ending, but it's ok. I won't kill anybody because of it...

It's a great short anime and it ended great too. I wish it was longer because I wanted to see more battles. The characters are standard but likable. The animation is smooth, the lighting is amazing and, the musics are awesome, especially the background music, it suits the show perfectly. The opening and ending themes are nice too. My favorite thing about this show is how the three main characters hated each other at the beginning and they tried to run away from each other, but situations always brought them back together. This anime is a show for everyone. If you enjoy anime, this is one you can't miss.

I have, finally, finished this anime just a few days ago. I had beforehand watched most of its episodes but then got lost watching other things to finish this series completely. For a warning to younger audiences: this series means what it says when it says it is read 17+. Violence wise, I doubt it'd trouble too many audiences today past the age of 14/15 (seeing as they're watching more mature stuff sooner than later) but it has its points. However my main warning is not with violence, but rather language and sexual content. Most sexual content is done with off-screen, but it at times flashes artwork depicting sexual acts you would rather avoid (even for all its joking manner regarding it) and despite most of the "sex" being off-screen-Mugen and others talk about it enough that it doesn't really matter. Also it has many mature elements (regarding mainly sexual things in nature) that should be avoided by young audiences, even if the audience of 14/15 think they can handle it-I'd say avoid it. However, content wise: this story is fantastic, and has beautifully done action scenes not over the top, and not boring in the least. Even the "filler" episode has its charm with Jin and Mugen, and while it confuses me to no end how some characters almost foretell coming "back" into the series only to not show up, or how some "major" characters are not all that major, this anime has great character, charm, and while the sexual content did put me off to some degree: it's a gem worth keeping in your treasure chest.

A definite must-watch. Thrilling, suspenseful, and hilarious, it kept my eyes glued to the screen, episode after episode. It's too bad that there are only 26 episodes. I also kind of wish that at the end, they didn't just go off on their own ways. (I was hoping that they'd stay together) +RECOMMEND

Combining modern hip-hop with historic Japan reference seems like a combination that would fail in any other case, but this series pulls it off beautifully! Each character is very unique and different from each other creating some great scenes and the battles are very well made and exciting to watch. The show has a great balance of comedy and drama and each episode is interesting and fun to watch.

I could not leave indifferent mix of historical Japan and modern musical themes (Champloo there is in the title is not in vain). In general, all three main characters could easily be present in our time. At the same time in nature, they differ considerably as Jin - a serious, sober, restrained in emotion; Mugen - just an explosive mix of emotions. But each of them is good in their own way (no surprise that Fuu undecided)
Although the picture fairly simplistic, but the fighting scenes are delivered with incredible accuracy (as if the animators were counted movements of heroes by schemes and formulas).
It's pity that just when the characters became real friends they parted ways
P.S. My favorite series about a blind girl with a samisen

The intro to this anime was really interesting and it's what makes me want to watch this series further.
I think, overall, the story was awesome, it's really gives off different aura from other Samurai anime. The relationship between Fuu, Mugen and Jin looks natural and it's developing since the first day they met. The humor in this anime are priceless, and it's one of the thing that kept me watching this anime. The plot getting more serious in the later episode and I didn't expect that when I watch it for the first time, I never expected who Fuu's father is and I never expect how serious her little search was.
I'm all neutral about the ending, (what happened to the trio) I don't know if I should be happy or disappointed(these feeling are not directed to how the anime ending, but to the trio's ending...or something like that).
But it's still an awesome anime and I believe no one will be disappointed with it.

I will own this show one day. I just need to wait until I get some money. Anyway, this is the show that inspired me to watch Cowboy Bebop. This show was really amazing. ^^ Some of the action scenes were just amazing. I think episode 1 had the best action scenes though. Anyway, the characters were really awesome. You couldn't help but love Mugen even if he is an idiot. XD There's also a lot of sex in this show since every time Mugen and Jin got some money they were immediately at a red light district. :P Like Cowboy Bebop this show has a good balance of humor and drama. I feel like it leans heavily to the drama side, but the humorous episodes are great! Check out this show if you love action scenes, humor, and drama. ^^

This anime is crazy funny and awesomely action oriented. It's rap style approach to things makes it unique and memorable. Whether it be just walking down the street rapping an intro for your boss, or the DJ disc scratching sounds when they bleep things out or switch between scenes.


Very predictable and full of stuff that never went into the story. I was very disappointing considering I had a friend of mine recommended the series. I found it very close to others out there, and the plots to be laughable at best. There were a few laughs, but it is more about seeing it very stupid that funny.

Usually my buddy was right about a series - he was not this time.
