Kazuto Nakazawa Unveils New Visual to Commemorate 20th Anniversary!

Watch the Original Series for a Limited Time on the FlyingDog YouTube Channel!

 

 

Tokyo – July 2, 2024 – Samurai Champloo, which aired in 2004, stands as a groundbreaking anime directed by Shinichirō Watanabe. Seamlessly blending historical drama and hip-hop elements, it crafted a unique visual and musical experience that captivated anime enthusiasts and hip-hop fans alike, earning acclaim domestically and internationally.

 

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the original broadcast of Samurai Champloo, and to commemorate this milestone, we are inviting fans to create new content with the global contest Samurai Champloo Video Clash”!

 

For this contest, participants must create new Samurai Champloo videos by combining edited anime footage with designated music tracks. There are two categories: the Shorts Category, to be submitted via YouTube Shorts, and the Music Video Category, for full music videos on YouTube. Winners of the Shorts Category will receive a US$300 gift card, and winners of the Music Video Category will receive a cash prize of US$1,000. The winning videos will also be released on the FlyingDog YouTube channel as official music videos. The contest is open to anyone aged 18 and over, whether professional or amateur.

This is your chance to leave your mark on the legendary anime Samurai Champloo! We look forward to seeing your creativity.

 

Additionally, in celebration of the 20th anniversary, a new main visual by character designer Kazuto Nakazawa has been unveiled, featuring Mugen and Jin in a dynamic pose.
