Based on what i've seen so far, this is basically Boyz n the Hood (and i say basically because it's not a coming of age story) but set in feudal japan. It's only a minor theme that sort of makes sense because samurai where more or less gangsters who where basically nomads who dispite having a strong moral code abused power and did a bunch of retarded stuff including fighting amongst themselves, not paying for food or getting drunk. Mugen dresses in hip-hop clothing and acts like one of those rappers who act like a bad guy or whatever and apparantly there's going to be a basket ball
episode from what >>760
is saying, so i guess i'm feeling strong hip-hop vibes.
I'm curious for the background history of the characters and i feel like there isn't enought discussion between them, i guess it makes sense because they are only teamed up because fuu want's to find the sunflower scented person and they really don't like eachother but it just makes the episodes so far feel like filler. Maybe it's just me though, and more info was revealed about the person they are looking for, like the skull necklace.
