Champloo note

Just a short memo about the action in Samurai Champloo. Though I haven't read anything to confirm this, I've suspected since the beginning that the Suzuki brothers (鈴木竜也, 鈴木卓也 / Suzuki Tatsuya and Suzuki Takuya) credited in almost every episode in the series are responsible for the action in each episode, which would explain the sense of unity. Interesting is that their genga credit is listed on a separate page with 1st genga and 2nd genga credits in the most recent episode. That's something I've never heard of, having 1st and 2nd genga (genga=key animation) for just the animation by two key animators.

I think watching episode 10 I was most struck by how different an episode can feel depending on the person writing it. Compare the tameness of this episode with all the eps written by Dai Sato.

It looks like the Susuki brothers are back on Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto, the new samurai show from Sunrise :)

If it’s any better, Tatsuya is storyboarding and AD’ing episode 4, from what it seems.
