Samurai Champloo

I've had trouble watching all of the newest anime series (2004) from Japan, Samurai Champloo (Saturday on the Cartoon Channel at 9:30 pm with a repeat later that night and on Thursday at 11:30 pm), but the ones I've seen are pretty darn good. The drawing is often beautiful; the story quirky, usually funny, and sometimes compelling; and, the characters are nearly complete enough to pass as real. Set during the Meiji restoration, when Japan was finally going modern, it's like nothing you've seen before. Those of you with social lives as barren as mine should check it out.
