Samurai Champloo, Episodes 5 - 11

Two European episodes, both using the stranger in a strange land plot device. The only esoteric episode, every other episode could have been found in a bibliography. But then who has proved that there is no such thing as chi. There was a private eye episode. Also one where everybody accidentally gets high on Marijuana. One had a very sad ending too.

There certainly are a lot of mature themes throughout the series. So now we've seen the personalities of the main characters in several situations and have started to find out what their back story is.
