Antearion : One of the best opening ever. R.I.P Nujabes.

GunsGiftsGalleries : greatest anime ever

Felipe Revuelta : I honestly believe this show was what helped bridge the gap between hip-hop culture and otaku culture. Rock, punk, and EDM have always had great representation in anime. Either through clothing and hair styles, OPs, and rebellious character traits. But SC changed the game and introduced hip-hop culture to otakus and anime to hip-hop fans. This was a cultural revolution that blended urban stylings and creativity on both ends.

Tasty Fetus : Fun fact: The Boondocks intro was inspired by this! Love Samurai Champloo!

Kelsey Johnson : When you realize an anime in 2004 had way better animation than Naruto, OP and DBS today

AlphaDog : I love re-watching this on Adult Swim as part of the Toonami block. Brings tears.

Capn Fox : This screams late night adult swim

LadyJane2876 : Glad to see Samurai Champloo is popping back into popularity, people need to see and know what a good anime is again

Matthew Calmert : I honestly prefer Samurai Champloo to Cowboy Bebop

bebsho : Not only is this my favorite show opening of all time but the song has pretty interesting lyrics: Sharp like an edge of a samurai sword The mental blade cut through flesh and bone Though my mind's at peace, the world out of order Missing the inner heat, life gets colder Oh yes, I have to find my path No less, walk on earth, water, and fire The elements compose a magnum opus My modus operandi is amalgam Steel packed tight in microchip On my armor a sign of all-pro The ultimate reward is honor, not awards At odds with the times in wards with no lords A freelancer A battle cry of a hawk make a dove fly and a tear dry Wonder why a lone wolf don't run with a clan Only trust your instincts and be one with the plan [Hook] Some days, some nights Some live, some die In the way of the samurai Some fight, some bleed Sun up to sun down The sons of a battlecry Some days, some nights Some live, some die In the name of the samurai Some fight, some bleed Sun up to sun down The sons of a battlecry A battlecry

Hollowfox : R.I.P. Nujabes and Manglobe

MyHeroMacadamiaNuts : This is one of the only shows I prefer the dub over.

Pref_915 : Why did Netflix get rid of this.... WHY?!?

MrLeemurman : Does anyone else shit bricks at 1:14?

Munkee D. Luffy : Anyone who has never heard of Nujabes please look him up

Kylan Romas : This intro tells you everything you need to know about each character. Flawless imagery plus Battlecry is catchy af...10/10

Viktor Locke : Whose insane idea was it to make an anime set in Feudal Japan but feels nothing like Feudal Japan?

Fall Matic : One of the best op ever classic 🙌🏻

Justin Charles : I'm the type to skip intros to get right into the show(plus I think most of them suck anyway) but this one is just to good. Matter of fact I rewind it just to hear this again
