I think part of the reason it took so long was because it's a Geneon title and they went through a buyout and all of their titles were basically put on hold until that was done. Great show though. Unfortunate that it won't be shown on tv as I think it could really attract people that don't normally watch anime. As far as best anime you've never heard of, that will forever be Kaiba.

This is Cowboy Bebop in Brazil with some Samurai Champloo.

Since it came out in 2008, it was under the radar since there were pretty big titles in anime were coming out at that time. That was basically it as the show itself was pretty good.

@Halberdierv2: in what way do you see it as Cowboy Bebop?Have heard this before in hulus coments but dont see it at all my self.

@Marshal Victory: The only connection I can think of is that both of them aren't like your standard anime and that they're both "cool". It's weird because the story lines aren't similar but them being almost completely unlike other anime does kinda make them similar. If I was going to describe it in terms of other anime, Bebop is the first thing I would think of. Maybe Redline as well but then again, that's only because it's different and cool.

@sickVisionz: Might be what some see. Cause they are difrent than the norm.I dont see it tho. From tone, story , an plot. it feels difrent to me than Cowboy Bebop.Tho one could argue i think both have a road show aspect.Travel as it were or a search along the way.

Halberdierv2on Sept. 21, 2013 at 10:12 a.m.

@Marshal Victory: There's a certain style about it that they share, and I believe some of the people who worked on bebop worked on this, I think.

also, It's awesome. also, there's finally an english version, too!

@Halberdierv2: Seen a add for this set an their is a good reson why people started with the Cowboy bebop comparisons.. its from the directors of Cowboy Bebop an Samurai Champloo ! Which would explain some diriction style wise simularities others are seeing more than me.

I might get the series when both parts are out. Leary any more of buying parts of a season as short as that.

It's not by the Champloo/Bebop dude. He just organized the music production.

Each part is 13 episodes, the length of a typical season of an anime series.

@sickVisionz: Just reporting what i saw the add said just that from the directors of Cowboy Bebop an Samurai Champloo .Vid trailer tho says creators.

At 1:15 mark says creators of Cowboy Bebop an Samurai Champloo . Seen the add i mentioned on crunchyrol so odds are it was a RightStuff one. They have a difrent one now.Still same thing aplies. people who helped created both had hand in this .So that might be why people se style similarities.

id rather buy something when it says complet its actualy you know complete.I understand why they do this .But ill wait till 2 comes out an get 1 an 2 at one time.
