Champloo fever!

Scenes from two of my favourite episodes - #6 - 'Stranger Searching' and #11 - 'Gamblers & Gallantry'

"Some days, some nights,
Some live, some die,
In the name of the samurai"

A while back, I mentioned Samurai Champloo and how I wanted to get my hands on it. One of my friends has downloaded the fansubs and passed me a copy. So I have spent the last two weeks gleefully devouring eps 1-17. Can I just say how much I am enjoying this series? Everything about it is fabbo, from the well-thought out character design, super-detailed animation (I am so in awe of the amount of work that has gone into the realistic character movements and background scenery), choice of colours, cool hip-hop soundtrack and of course entertaining stories. My only gripe is that the main plotline, the search for the samurai who smells of sunflowers, is advancing...very...slowly. Episode 6 was only when you got any sort of clues. But I suppose many times, it is about the journey and not the destination. In any case, I'm itching to get my hands on the remaining episodes! I hear ep 21 is out already...hehe.

In the meantime to fuel my Champloo fever, I have been busy surfing for all things Champloo, from desktop wallpaper, icons (in case you were wondering, my profile icon features Fuu, one of the characters from Champloo), interesting fansites and even merchandise to covet! Observe - mobile phone dangly. *Cue squeals*
