Samurai Champloo: Anime Classics Complete Series

 (TV) (2004-2005)

Samurai Champloo: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Mugen is a fierce animal-like warrior with a unique Bboying (break-dance) inspired fighting style. Jin has a more traditional style but donĺt think of this as a weakness because his skills are amazing. The two contrasting samurai warriors are far from friends, yet their separate paths seem to cross anyways. Mugen is wandering aimlessly through the city when he stumbles upon a teahouse where he meets Jin and Fuu (A ditzy waitress, but donĹt think she doesnĹt have anything hidden up her sleeves). Fuu convinces them both to come with her in search of a mysterious samurai that smells like sunflowers and their journey begins. This modernized hip-hop tale breaks the barriers of the common, historical, samurai anime.

Samurai Champloo: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fans of Samurai Champloo were more than a bit nonplussed that the original BD release of this was upscaled from an SD master, but of course given the genesis and era of the show's creation, there was no other alternative. This new BD release appears to be the same AVC/1080p upconvert port, but don't let the term "upconvert" scare you away unnecessarily. Despite the doomsday prophecies, Samurai Champloo actually looks pretty darned spry on this Blu-ray set. Line detail is excellent and color is especially robust and well saturated. This is one of the most inventively visual animes in recent (maybe not so recent) memory, and while it's not at the absolute peak of hi-def wonderment, it looks sufficiently sharp and well detailed here to rate a well above average score. Sometimes people just like to complain.


Samurai Champloo: Anime Classics Complete Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Samurai Champloo is granted two excellent lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mixes, one in the original Japanese and an English dub. Both of these tracks are excellent, but the English dialogue to my ears seems clearly mixed louder. Voice work on both tracks is superb, bringing the characters fully to life, but the most remarkable thing about both of these soundtracks is the bass-heavy music, which thumps with impressive power throughout every episode. Fidelity is excellent, though surround activity is somewhat limited, tending to be most noticeable in the underscore as well as some of the battle sequences which manage to get to a fair level of immersion.
