17. Samurai Champloo
The narrative of this glorious anime is all about Jin, a conventional and very proficient samurai; Mugen, an advanced and equally proficient samurai; and Fuu, a woman who works in a teahouse. After Jin and Mugen get captured and are going to be killed, Fuu saves their lives and consequently makes them claim to help her locate the Samurai Who Smells Like Sunflowers. I understand you probably believe the plot of the anime sounds simple and childish, but trust us when we say it is well worth giving it a go.
