Old news is old, but since I like Champloo, and I didn't get to say RIP here, now I will take my chance and say "Rest in Peace, Seba Jun"

RIP- Nujabes
Luv Sic pt. 2 is one of my favorite songs ever. mystline, and arurian dance are also some of my favorites

I know for most anime shows, after the first couple of eps I tend to skip the opening. I just could not bring myself to do that with Champloo. Battlecry was too good.
