Champloo

Just rewatched all 25 episodes of Samurai Champloo (translates to Samurai mix)

Directed by Shinichirō Watanabe of cowboy bebop fame, Champloo is a sweet little hip/hop anime about 2 "samurai" whom represent 2 very different ways of going about things,both without a purpose or lord. The 2 are drawn together by a young woman who convinces them to hold off on killing each other(not that either has the skill to defeat the other imo) untill they help her find her estranged father, all she knows of him is that he smells of sunflowers, all we find out is that he's pretty much a christian...which is a big deal in ancient times.

best thing about the show apart from the art direction (watch the intro), for me is the contrast between characters, its not only apparent in their cloths and speech but in their fighting form. Mugen uses wild and confusing attacks which are hard to counter and defend against. Jin has maybe the most perfect form for a living swordsman of the time.
