Early Samurai Champloo concept sketches of Mugen, Jin, FUU and random characters buy the incomparable KAZUTO NAKAZAWA ( Character Designer/animation supervisor). Joy.

Moondrive takes it to another level and… Let’s not talk about his Asura’s Wrath animation. If you are reading this LeSean, here's some concept art of SC. Do you he illustrated the first one ?
