Samurai Champloo Episode 05 - Artistic anarchy


original title: Samurai Champloo


  • US Adult Swim
  • Uncut
Release: Aug 15, 2008 - Author: Jim - Translator: Jim - external link: IMDB
Samurai Champloo is a typical comedy-action anime, which focuses mostly on funny slapstick scenes and fast paced fights. You follow the young girl Fuu in ancient Japan as she searches a person she doesn't really know, accompanied by the two wranglers Jin and Mugen.
Though it was no big hit like other anime of this genre (Dragonball, Naruto) the anime grew popular enough to be released in the USA.

While the US version is flawless in any point (the dub is very good), parts of the series were edited a bit for the airing on the "Adult Swim" programm of "Cartoon Network". These edits focus mainly on swearing, very often the word "shit" was scratched out. Compared to other words that are still in there (crap, ass or son of a bitch) and were NOT scratched out, this seems a bit "funny" though.

The order for comparisons is:
Left: Japanese version
Right: US Adult Swim Version

About the episode: This episode was about an Ukyo-E artist (old japanese erotic). Some of these pictures were apparently to revealing for TV and had been edited. Plus there was a very minor swearing-edit.

There is no time difference in this episode.
The second picture of the picture-series, where you see a woman being raped, was removed. To bridge the time difference the shot of the picture before was slowed down. The censored version jumps directly to picture 3.
The women's nipples were removed in picture 3 and 4

No time difference

Soundedit: as Mugen stands up it was sratches out thas he says "Ahhh, shit.".
