Shinichiro Watanabe's film noir-ish sci-fi adventure Cowboy Bebop set a new standard for cool in anime in 1998, and Samurai Champloo, an edgy mix of Edo-era martial arts and hip-hop irreverence, is a worthy follow-up. A string of coincidences brings together three misfits in a two-bit tea house: Mugen, a rebellious vagabond; Jin, a taciturn ronin; and Fuu, a nutty waitress. The sardonic Mugen lacks the polish that distinguishes a classic martial artist--he uses break dance spins and flips against his foes. Jin moves with a polish that approaches iciness: When he unsheathes his sword, he becomes a lethal work of art in motion. Fuu forces Jin and Mugen to help her find a mysterious samurai "who smells of sun flowers." As the ill-assorted trio wanders towards Nagasaki, Watanabe treats the audiences to a string of outrageous, anachronistic adventures. In Episode 18, Mugen belatedly learns to read at a smackdown elementary school, while Jin tries to settle the rivalry between the heirs to the dojo of his former sensei. The seemingly unrelated storylines collide in a no-holds-barred graffiti contest featuring Tokugawa rap lyrics, ink-brush tagging, Hiroshima homeboys, and a caricature of Andy Warhol. But Watanabe reveals the hidden significance of these nutty interludes when he brings his picaresque adventure-comedy to a close. Like Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo leaves the viewer wanting more. (Rated 16 and older: violence, violence against women, profanity, brief nudity, sexual situations, alcohol and tobacco use)

And you didn't bother to my post in my obviously much better Gantz thread? http://www.cdanddvdbargains.com/forum/Smileys/phpbb_imported/handbags.gif

While not as good as Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo is an excellent anime - I watched it when it was still being fansubbeb. The last 3 episodes made up for everything bad.

That was quick - Back up to £44.89. Looks like it'll be just you and me who ordered it!

Blimey - Somebody picked that up quick. Wonder if they'll bother cancelling? Can't be that many who managed to order this one. It's not made it's way onto any other forums that I can see either. Good luck :thumbsup:

Well, I'd only just got around to posting it on AV-forums and cdanddvdbargains.com when someone posted saying it had expired.

Let's hope my 100 and your 1 make it! :thumbsup:

If I could do that handbag smilie thing back at you I would...:-D

Managed to get an order in before the price went up.

Have SendIt honoured misprices before?

Wish I'd caught this, my friend won't stop raving about its brilliance.

Damn, missed it. Have them on disc from downloads, but would have liked to own the boxset (not at £45 though!). Great bargain if you get it.

SendIt always send my box sets that look like they've been used as footballs. If they do decide to be generous and honour this, don't expect the box to look pretty; they'll send us the most badly damaged stock they have. :-(

The ending of both Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo are what make both serious truly amazing. I would've rated Samurai Champloo as decent before the final 3 episode arc.

My 100 are still all there.

I did hope they'd honour this after HMV seem to have decided to honour the Gantz misprice...fewer ordered this set due to the mispricing being fixed fast.

Are you joking about your order being canceled? Mine is still showing.

It could be that they're working down a list from first to last, mine being near the last due to canceling and re-ordering, but you wouldn't think they'd have too many orders to cancel...unless someone really did order 10-100.
