    One thought on “Samurai Champloo: The Complete Series”

    1. Though I gave it enough stars to say I liked it, I barely liked it and hesitate to like it more with reason. This manga is based on a (far superior) anime of the same title, which I had viewed in its entirety long before reading this book. Here's a little fact that would've helped me a lot if I'd known ahead of time: This manga was published while the anime was only halfway through its initial run, which explains why the manga fails to cover much of the anime series and why it veers off in a wei [...]

    2. I'm figuring that the anime was a lot more fun than this. At least with the anime there would be the character and action of it all. The manga version, however, just rather reads like a bad cliche. I'm guessing that this concept of mixing period Japanese history and hip hop culture would mix a lot better in animation rather than print. To that end, I didn't really feel like I was getting a lot out of this one.

    3. A very interesting volume. I was quite intrigued by this complete volume as it gave me a lot of memories of when I use to watch the series when I was in my late teens. This interpretation was really very good. I am very impressed.

    4. A nice companion to the series, though it is just that: a companion that has some interesting but irrelevant stories. The "champloo" style is understandably much better executed in animation than on paper. Still, worth the quick read as it is funny and charming, even if the anime is so much more.

    5. Not my cup of tea. I can see the appeal and humor, but the whole thing seemed a bit aimless and random to me. Didn't finish.

    6. It's been a while since I've watched the anime so it was really good to be reintroduced to the story and characters again. It was as hilarious and exciting as I remember it.
