'Samurai Champloo' is an anime television series directed by Shinichiro Watanabe that ran for 26 episodes on Fuji television from May 2004 to March 2005.

The story follows Mugen and Jin, two vagrant swordsmen rescued from being executed by Fuu, a ditzy young waitress. She then recruits them to accompany her on a quest across Japan to search out 'The samurai who smells of sunflowers'.

Set in an alternate Edo Period of Japan, 'Samurai Champloo' follows these three eccentric people's journey in an epic quest filled with action, comedy, and dynamic brand fighting, set to the beat of a unique hip-hop-infused background track.

'Samurai Champloo' is considered a great example of the favored Chanbara film and TV genre. Trademarks of this genre include the Edo setting, attention to samurai or alternative scrapper characters, and more thrilling, dramatic fights. Chanbara was employed in the first days of Japanese cinema as a way of expressing veiled social critiques. The word 'Champloo' comes from the Okinawan word 'Chanpurū'. 'Chanpurū' alone means 'to mix' or 'to hash'.
