Samurai Champloo is one of the few anime I know to have mixed hip hop with old-school Samurai culture. There’s nothing like it for this unique reason.

And the contrast between each characters personality, attitude and “lifestyle” is what makes the quotes so differentiated and interesting to hear. Even if it’s a little explicit (in Mugen’s case).

If you’ve watched the anime, here are some of the best Samurai Champloo quotes to jog your memory!

 

22 Samurai Champloo Quotes:

 

1. Monk Zuiko Quotes

 

“Freedom cannot be forced into existence, nor can it be won through painful struggle. Freedom cannot be bought or sold. It has nothing to do with one’s social status; one’s profession is of no consequence. In order for you to accept yourself as you are and live with your soul at peace, you must simply teach yourself to let it be, only then will you discover freedom.” – Monk Zuiko

 

“Freedom, isn’t something earned through suffering or pushing yourself. You must accept yourself just as you are and live according to the flow of things; that is true freedom.” – Monk Zuiko
