    Has there been any talk of one? It seems like a pretty good fit and the Cowboy Bebob Movie turned out to be a big success. Anyone have any idea?

    Samurai Champloo's creator is Shinichiro Watanabe which is also the creator of Cowboy Bebop. Both series have a total of 26 episodes, so that sorta shows that Shinichiro Watanabe likes to keep a pattern in his anime series. After Cowboy Bebop ended Shinichiro Watanabe decided to create a movie for Cowboy Bebop, so i'm wondering if he follows a certain pattern in his animes maybe he will create a Samurai Champloo movie soon. I really hope so, I love Samurai Champloo and it is my favorite anime/t.v series so it would be awesome if they had one more journey.

    Ya i knew he was the creator of both, i didn't know the part about both having 26 episodes though. Did you know that it's the same voice actor for Spike and Mugen?

    I agree I think that they should do another "journey/adventure" I know I would watch it! I just think it would suit the series for them to all "happen" upon each other in a minor conflit that of course either Mugen or Fuu created hehehe... There's always hope! But I would love to see a Movie also! ^.^

    It would be nice but then again it would be hard to imagine a reunion of those three.Some stories are better without a specific ending.

    I dunno if anyone's actually watched Bebop and the movie, but just so you guys know, the movie's set in the middle of the series, between two episodes. People who die in the series later show up in the movie.

    So a Champloo movie wouldn't have to be a reunion, and honestly, I wouldn't expect a reunion. It could easily be another, longer story about something that happened on their original journey.

    Really? I think it would be better to have it after the series ended, that would make it much easier. With Cowboy Bebop they didn't really have a choice...

    Plus, there doesn't have to be a reunion. It could just show what's happening to them simultaneously. Or they could all get caught by the Shogun and then meet that way.

    The possibilities are endless for a show like this.

    I would love for them to mke a Samurai Champloo movie... to be honest, I'm one of those people who likes having some kind of an ending to the story, and after episode 26 I kinda went crazy wondering what ended up happening to them for a while. At least with Blood+ they kind of had an epilogue, but no such luck for SC. And, I would imagine that it would be easiest for the movie (if it happens) to occur after the ending of the show. That way, you don't really have to bother with explaining when the movie takes place, and after all, they did say that they would like to meet again. It would be a perfect and easy transistion into a movie. (XD along with the Saw detective doing random voice overs that explain Edo period Japan giving us audince members useless facts.)

    If they did have a movie, maybe that Okuru (from Lullabies Of The Lost) guy would appear again..
