    One thought on “Samurai Champloo, Volume 1”

    1. As an avid manga reader I've read many manga in many different styles but I've never come across one manga that is as entertaining, as hilarious, as wonderful as Samurai Champloo.The first thing that caught my attention was the art-style. They're not the usual big-eyed, bishounen male characters that we find in some manga but rather rough around the edges characters that are somehow attractive in their own way.As for the characters themselves, there is Fuu, the little, dumb waitress that somehow [...]

    2. This is better enjoyed as an anime. I was never fond of reading only one chapter of this story, another way the TokyoPop implosion messed up the way I enjoyed my manga. This lone book has been too lonely on my shelf, to the Culling with you!

    3. *Read the whole seriesYa'll should just do yourself a favor and go watch the anime. The manga, though a great read, could not really match to its anime counterpart. But we have to take into account though that this is one of those rare instances wherein the manga is based on the anime instead of the other way around.Jin, my love, I cant forgive myself for forgetting about you! X)

    4. I read this because I was so engrossed with the anime :-)There are some scenes that are here in manga and not in anime.

    5. I love the fact that this manga only barely touches on issues of depth and is instead just an excuse to rampage through the past, make silly anachronistic jokes, and kill lots of people:D You've got to love a samurai manga where a girl puts up a poster for a bodyguard with a note on it that says, "Must be as cool as (Toshiro) Mifune." Hee!Jin actually did get a bit of depth in the first volume trying to decide what he should fight for, but I was more amused by how much trouble (and help) his pre [...]

    6. This manga, based off the anime of the same name, follows an unlikely trio on an odd quest as well as on the run from the law. There's Fuu, a young waitress; Mugen, an arrogant criminal; and Jin, a refined samurai. Together the three are searching for a samurai that smells like sunflowers, no problem right? Along the way they run into many hardships including, samurais, ninjas, monsters, more samurais, and friendship?I really enjoyed this, especially as a fan of the anime. The two start off simi [...]

    7. This is one of my favorite mangas. The story follows 3 people named Mugen, Jin, and Fu. Mugen is a kind of street thug sword toting samurai who invented his own type of breakdancing-like fighting style. Jin is a traditional samurai who is accused of killing his master. Fu is a young ditsy girl who get these two guys to help her find someone. Throughout the whole story they are looking for a man who is known as 'The Samurai who Smells of Sunflowers'. It was an amazing book, the art was really wel [...]

    8. Having watched the anime first, the manga of Samurai Champloo does not live up to the former. This type of manga needs the vivacity that an anime can produce. The storyline is somewhat lacking in comparison as well. I am aware of differences between the manga and anime of a similar name, but the difference is decidedly lacking in this manga. However, beautiful art.

    9. This has certainly been an interesting mangabut there was too much cussing to get a full five stars from me. I was fine with the violence, i mean hey, it's a samurai manga, but the terrible ammount of cussing brought it down.

    10. Wow, I really disliked its tone, characterization, plotting, and art. It's so smug and satisfied with itself. So now I have yet another case where I far prefer the anime to the manga.

    11. I liked the book But then I got angry because when I finished it the library moved the manga section Now I dont know where it is. NOO!

    12. There was one little unforgettable moment that really touched me. 5/5 even though the story had some shortcomings.
