I must warn you that I will take this opportunity to be hatin'. I – I can't be unbiased about it, I just can't. I restricted the bitching to parentheses, but there's a fair bit of it – I forgot just how stupid parts of this game are, sheesh. I am so, so glad Sands of Time eventually outsold it, and I am going to find the guy who put his own tattoo on the Prince and punch his lights out, because the music is his fault. Ugh. Spoilers behind the cut.

Right. So. Warrior Within. )

All right, with that out of my system, let's talk about Samurai Champloo!

It's set in feudal Japan with several deliberate anachronisms, and it can be weird and hilarious, touchingly poignant and creepily intense over the space of a few episodes. I love how beautiful it can be, too – the intro sequence is really cool in a way that few are. And I love love love the way the characters interact.

And then I babbled. )

Avatar and Samurai Champloo are attempting to cross themselves over in my mind. This shouldn't be happening. Their tones – not to mention ratings! – are completely different. Partly it is because it would be awesome to see The Clash of the Fluffy-Headed Rebels, i.e. Mugen and Jet, and also Sokka's Haiku Rapping does not help.

I don't have the time, Brain, sheesh. How the heck would it work, anyway?
