12. Samurai Champloo
Samurai Champloo may not be a very well known anime but it’s one anime that stands out from the rest by giving its audience a wild vivid fusion of multi-cultural pulp fiction sensibility. It has an intense blend of both action and drama depicting Edo- period history and hip hop culture. It also represents the influence of the western culture on the youth of Okinawan youth and their openness towards multiple cultures.
The story revolves around the lives of three major characters- Jin, Mugen, and Fuu who set out on a journey to find a Samurai who smells like sunflowers. The entire series put immense emphasis on the importance of the journey the three characters and how each of them transforms through it. Throwing some light on each character’s past with each episode the series shows how each character has evolved to become who they are. It also features different fighting styles of each character where Mugen has more of a modern unorthodox style based on breakdancing and Jin has a very typical Samurai style of fighting, both masters of their own techniques. The series has beautiful visuals backed up with lo-fi hip-hop music made by Japanese musician Nujabes. Definitely, a must watch for all Danmachi lovers.
