My Thoughts:

I give Samurai Champloo (Classics) an A+.

If you have not watched this show then I already recommend this highly. If you have watched this show then this is another piece to add to your Blu-Ray collection. Personality just oozes out of this show thanks to the series director Shinichiro Watanabe(Director of Cowboy Bebop).

The action sequences in Samurai Champloo are second to none with each encounter feeling unique and fun to watch. The soundtrack of Samurai Champloo is a KNOCKOUT with one of the most praised and loved soundtracks of any anime. Period.

All of these pieces mix together beautifully to bring one of the most cherished animes of all time all inside one Blu-Ray set.
