Samurai Champloo in a sentence: "Freakishly intense swordfights, bust-three-of-your-gut's humor, and a blend of Feudal-Japan and modern day 'gangsterism'." Best anime ever, in my opinion.
Best Anime Ever
This Anime is outrageously awesome, Mugen is insanely rad, Gene is sharp with his moves, Fuu is a girl on a mission, and together, against many obstacles, they make this Anime totally amazing. I've watched alot of anime, and this is my favorite. Now i just wish iTunes had the soundtrack.
I am so glad Funimation has let this wonderful series on iTunes!
One of the best animes out there, now all we need is Soul Eater and Cowboy Bebop.
