An average story told by amazing detail, easily loveable 3 main characters, great soundtracks with combining samurai era and hiphop. You want more after watching and completing it but that feeling makes you love this anime more. It's short. it's lovely and deserves to be seen.


At first, I thought I was disappointed by this new, lazy, digital animation style. I was expecting something ooh like _Bebop_. But, man… I _really_ was wrong. This… is Watanabe on another level. Plus… it has Nujabes. I think it would be more perfect if it’s squeezed to maybe under 20 episodes? No big deal… _Champloo_ rules! To be (or not to be?) rewatched…


This is an absolutely amazin anime. The characters are well written, the group is fitting well and the adventures and different goals are absolutely amazing. I was close to tears as it ended. For those of you, who haven't seen it yet: Check it out, take your time and enjoy the first time watching... I wish I could do it again! Mixture of: Cowboy Bebop + Afro Samurai = Samurai Champloo (Awesome Soundtrack, great characters and an amazing storyline!)


One of the best animes, great story and characters. The soundtrack's amazing too.


I really enjoyed this story, but was a bit disappointed by the end... [spoiler] I believe I really want complicated stories, with harrowing deaths... But the answer of this show lies in its simplicity ! [/spoiler] The different steps of the journey are still great, and after having watched Cowboy Bebop, I must say I really enjoy his style ! Of course, the production is still amazing, with great soundtracks and design !


Um anime regular, o final é uma lástima, fraco e sem sentido nenhum, eles simplesmente se separam sem se importarem, sendo que episódios antes eles estavam se lamentando pela possibilidade de se separarem quando chegassem a Osaka.


Incredible anime! Nujabes's OST is really giving the tone of this whole show! This is so great to watch!




Real nice anime. Dat music *.*


Extremely stylized and well made. Odd is it may sound, but it blends Samurai-era action with more modern concepts and a touch of hip-hop. Don't knock it - it *works*.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
