Does anyone else notice that Mugen out of Samurai Champloo is just a rehash of Spike from bebop, except no where near as cool and set in the samurai period in Japan. Did Shinchiro Watanabe just get lazy. Also the hip-hop soundtrack is pretty terrible compared to cowboy bebop which had an awesome soundtrack.

When something works as well as spike Spiegel i'd be tempted to do it all over again wouldnt you?

Mugen is spike in the edo period but has more of an attitude i think.

spike and mugen are very alike as far as appearance goes and voice isnt too different either. But mugen has more of an attitude and less style compared to spike who is easy going and flows like water.

Well of course, Watanabe Shinchiro was the writer for Copwboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

I did notice the similarity, yes. But I quite like the Samurai Champloo soundtrack.

Totally similar in look. Attitude however? I see Mugan as a lot more angry agressive, and Spike? mostly laid back unless needing to be a bad ***.

I saw an AMV once showing the similarity.

its completely obvious that spike looks like mugen (or, i suppose its the other way around)
still, for some reason, i think mugen is hotter! ^^ maybe its just the badass samurai vibe

I believe that is the real question as well.. but I will agree on every body.. yes.. they look alike but their attitudes are different.. I will say Mugen and Jin together make the attitude of Spike.. ^_^ that is just me thought...

My man, that should be a poll.

I will say it is pretty tough to decide. Having a sword helps, course Spikes got a gun...
