Most helpful review
bigger than hip hopBy Rozah from Birmingham, England , 27 Jan 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]When you hear the word 'samurai' you might be fooled into expecting an historical epic. If thats what your looking for, you won't find it here. However, if its a kickass, crisply animated, humorous anime with a hip hop soundtrack and fight scenes that flow beautifully your after, select this DVD right now.
From the makers of Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo is about two very different swordsmen (Jin and Mugen) who get saved from execution by a waitress named Fuu. In return, the boys promise to help her find a 'samurai smelling of sunflowers' and not kill each other in the process.
The animation style is fluid and cleverly edited. Particularly brilliant is the scene changes, which cut in time with a DJ scratch.
No, its not historically accurate but nor does it promise to be. What it is is an original piece of viewing pleasure which i recommend fully, totally and whole-heartedly.

Really goodBy thepresidentofunitedstates (50 reviews) , 13 May 2012Really good and enjoyable. Is the story about the Japanese sunflower painting inspiring van Gogh's sunflower painting true? Nice piece of work
Skip the DubBy Saksun (2 reviews) , 03 Jul 2011Such a cool anime! the characters are brilliant, and the story just twists and turns, with a few light relief episodes along the way. Please do yourself a favour though and watch it with subtitles- the american voices are terrible!
'Samurai Champloo 1'By Chairmosher (36 reviews) from St. Neots , 02 Jun 2009Awesome anime, great action and dark humour, but best of all it's the characters that make this work so well. No surprise this is popular.
what a load of horse p|ssBy a customer from Acton , 21 Mar 2009I've never felt compelled to write a review on here before, but after watching this I felt I had to.
I absolutely love samurai/kung fu films as well as anime and after reading 5star reviews on here about this film I ordered it and waited expectantly. It is THE biggest pile of dog turd I've ever seen.
Credit where credit is due, the animation is pretty slick and the hip hop soundtrack just about tolerable but the dialogue and voiceovers are unbelievably bad. Samurais calling each other 'Dude' and 'MoFo' made me want to puke and it sounds like they got Bill and Ted in to do the voiceovers. I simply couldn't concentrate on the story because of perpetual cringeing.
Shame on you people who decided to write reviews hailing this as some sort of cinematic masterpiece, misleading people like myself into wasting a rental on Samurai TrampPoo.
Do yourself a favour, stick a red hot proker up your jacksy for an hour and a half, it would be far more enjoyable than watching this.

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I would personally rate Samurai Champloo as one of my favourite anime series, along with Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell. As ever the series format allows for greater character development that a standard length film cannot hope to match.
