OMG!! It's just so unfair... I really liked soundtrack from Samurai Champloo, especially opening and endings. Now when I think he isn't here anymore... He died so young!

You were great, man. I'll miss you. RIP

I just heard about this from one of my friends. Absolutely devastating.

His music in Champloo was just the tip of the iceberg. R.I.P.

I'm in shock, I've been following him since Samurai Champloo. I haven't felt this way about a famous person's death in the longest time. I just don't know what else to say. RIP Jun Seba.

His music captured the atmosphere of Samurai Champloo perfectly.
Another gifted person to die at such an young age..

I guess I should edit this, as it's ironic that Nujabes was renowned for NOT being in the limelight.

I just read Shing02's comment and this is just gonna depress me for a while, hard to believe there wont be any more new Nujabes. Well, apparently there's still unreleased material waiting to be heard, so there's that at least. And the fact that he practically created a genre that is still going strong today thanks to the likes of Nomak, etc.

Incidentally, the Wiki page says the car crash happened the same day of an earthquake.

One of the features that made Samurai Champloo popular (especially with english speaking viewers) was the great music, Battlecry still remains as one of my favorite anime openings.

NOOO!!!! I just finished Champloo and it had the best music of any anime series. Man, I'm even more sad now. I'm going to listen to battlecry right now in honor of his memory.

R.I.P Nujabes; the true son of a battlecry
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

Actually wait, shouldn't the thread title be changed? I don't think Nujabes ever sang anything.

By the way, if you've only heard his Champloo stuff, stop what you're doing and check out his non-anime stuff, it will blow you away.
