Samurai Champloo Doujinshi: image reviews and recommendations
===29 titles reviewed as of July 2009.==

(Now featuring translations from my invaluable friends in the champloo-doujin fandom; credit given as due.)



Doujinshi by Saimin and Tsubaci-sou (Koume Kitamura) now have their own sections in the listing.


"Canaria"

40 pages, black and white with full color cover.
R- to X-rated. Boysex; explicit detail in 1 of 2 stories.

==Thanks to aruarian_dancer for translation.



I really like this one =). The art team (from Akatsuki and Cathexis circles) has a delicate, emotionally sensitive style that makes for very expressive faces and eyes, and allows fine, subtle storytelling even with quite explicit storylines. In the first story, Jin pretends to be asleep while Mugen jacks off, but gives himself away by dropping one of his swords; there's an argument about eavesdropping and the degree of Jin's interest, in which Jin defends himself but remains quietly curious. Jin recalls a brief sexual encounter with an anonymous blond samurai (as it turns out, he killed the man); he's wistful and dissatisfied; alone afterward, clearly thinking about the earlier incident with Mugen, he takes matters into his own hands and is found by Mugen, who gets what's going on, and joins him for a nice resolution (Jin's only mildly resistant) and the sweetest J/M kiss yet seen in doujinshi.

The whole tone of this one is admirable, even sweet, totally without the elements of rape and violence seen in so many yaoi DJ.
The second story is a little odder and more intense; it's one long J/M sex scene, triggered when Mugen licks blood from Jin's cut finger. There are also several very explicit panels, which doesn't occur in the first story, but it's still way above the tone of much yaoi.
--As I said, I'm very fond of this one, and hope the creative team/s will do more Champloo stories.

Clarification from aruarian_dancer: "This doujinshi is by two artists from two different circles. First story is by Tokisawa Ichiichi of "Cathexis" circle, while the second one is by Akiba of "Akatsuki" circle. Front cover art by Akiba and back cover art by Tokisawa."

"Gonegejoudo" (or "Gongojoudo")
('Seeking Rebirth in the Pure Land'/'Hoping to Reach Heaven')

16 pages, black and white with elegant, textured, gold-and-violet covers. X-rated.

==Most profound thanks to aruarian_dancer for translation.



OK, this has full-frontal explicit sex, but don't let that deter you; it's one of the strangest and sweetest things on the page. Yukimaru's ghost is following Jin, appearing first in the steam of a hot spring. Mugen is half-sure he sees it [v. cool, as the series establishes M's close ties to the Unseen World], and watches narrowly and suspiciously, wondering why Spooky Yuki looks at him so angrily. The guys sit down to some sake', of which one cup as usual sends Jin to sleep. Mugen passes out, and (cool!) is then able to talk to S-Y directly, asking him why he challenged Jin when he knew he'd lose, and why he's still following him "after being turned into a demon"--you were in love? he asks. G-Y denies it but M thinks it's obvious. =) When Mugen tries to wake him, mostly-drunk Jin (maybe it's just the sake'...) sees Mugen as Shino. He embraces and kisses the startled-but-pleased Mugen, who presses his advantage and is soon inside Jin (so much for Shino). Ghost-Yuki is stunned and furious (Mugen mercilessly gloats: "You undead dumbass, so much in love you can't even move on to the next world. Stand there and watch and sulk in eternal loneliness."), then sees his chance: he dematerializes into vapor near Mugen and Mugen inhales him (I'm 99% sure I have that right), allowing him to take possession of Mugen's body and make love to Jin himself. "Like my blood, my soul will dwell in your sword; I'll forever be yours," he tells J. [At least until Mugen's sword breaks his in half, kid.] Jin is understandably stunned when Mugen actually takes on the appearance of his dead beloved, but this reaction soon turns into a simply priceless moment of tearful, joyful and erotic reunion (this one panel of them kissing in tears is almost more than I can type about). The moment over, the smiling ghost gives Jin a hug, draped around his neck as he probably did so many times; we see them as they looked when they were together-- and then Jin is asleep alone. And we see Mugen lying outside, staring into the sky, angry at being used and pondering the strangeness of it all. [Oh, and this one also asserts that Mugen is hung like a horse. As many have assumed.=)]
[Footnote from keelieinblack: "For those of you wondering about that triangle-thing on Yukimaru's forehead, the white kimono and triangular headband are the traditional attire of a yurei, a type of Japanese ghost-- specifically, the 'unfinished business' type."]

By NUMBERS (creators of the non-yaoi "Honno", see review on All Ages Doujinshi page), 2005-05-29. A must-have.



"Bojou Romantica"

> 12 pages, black and white with extra-cool gloss full-color covers.
X-rated (oral sex, noncon)


Moving this listing here from the "All Ages" section as it's been made clear to me that my review there is based on a severely edited advance copy. The version I have is only 12 pages long and is "all ages" safe, but the complete version contains explicit material (nudity, oral sex, use of force).

My honest apologies to anyone who was as misled by my ignorance as I was.

"When the night ends, a parting"

22 pages, black and white with B/W cardstock cover.
PG-13 to R-rated, I'd say: yaoi sex but no explicit details.

==Many thanks to ryu_kk009 for translation.



It's very interesting to me that many fan artists/writers want to see Jin and Mugen together, but no one thinks they'd have an easy time getting there; there's definite recognition that their past lives are full of secrets and unknowns. This little A5 size zine shows Mugen winning a drinking contest: loser will be paying the trio's tab, to Fuu's happiness, but it leaves Mugen pretty zoned. Drunk Mugen --after having to be half-carried to and from the toilet--comes on a bit roughly to Jin, reminding him uneasily of an ugly-looking incident in his past. (Shown in a few quick panels: an apprehensive, younger-looking Jin, half-stripped and doubled over; a streak of blood on the wall; Jin standing with bloodied sword.) Pages of anguished expressions, bare skin (mostly Jin's) and sweat follow while they work through Jin's trauma to the expected conclusion. It's tense without being overtly violent-- the most threatening thing Mugen does is kick Jin's swords out of reach when he starts to panic. Jin seems both attracted and conflicted, and apparently wants to deny the whole thing on the last page, to Mugen's offense and Fuu's horror.

The art is simple, angular linework that gets the job done without fuss. It's sometimes working so hard to be discreet that it's not quite clear whose hands are where (and some poses are drawn a bit awkwardly) but one can get the idea. There's lots of kissing too, if that's something you like to look at. =)

An interesting little doujin for those who like some psychodrama with their yaoi. Two stars.

ryu_kk009 extrapolates: "Umm...well, when Jin's trying to recall how it happened that he's under Mugen at the moment, he has these tiny flashbacks, most particularly on 4th, 11th, and 12th pages. It's implied that Jin's Master trained him to pleasure him, and to enjoy while at it. So when it starts to feel good with Mugen, Jin sort of freezes for a moment. But then again, it's Mugen; it's totally different, so the moment smoothes out. Jin, however, is not ready to admit it just yet. To keep his self-image (which I suspect he had to rebuild after being broken, although killing the Master himself obviously [should/would] have helped, according to Moriko-san) intact, Jin pretends to have no memory of the night before."]

"Sono me wo mite ikena" (Do Not Look Into Those Eyes)

20 pages, black and white with B/W cardstock cover.
PG-13 to R-rated, I'd say: yaoi sex but no explicit details.

==I thank aruarian_dancer for the translation.



More emotionally-conflicted, sexual rough-and-tumble from Aquarium. They've had a battle with some rough-looking guys, and now Mugen can't sleep, and goes to sit outside; Jin follows him. Jin says that when he leaves at night, he can smell a woman's scent on him when he returns; Mugen asks with a grin if he's jealous, and says he'd stay here if Jin would do it with him. [Priceless exchange: J: "Th...This kind of thing is done only after people get to know each other better." M: "Are you from a two-dimensional universe or something? You get to know me better right away if we do it." =)] There's a kiss, a scuffle, quick sex, confused feelings all around, (Mugen makes the keen observation that "His eyes right now are the same as when he kills.") , and some concerned gentleness in the ending that finishes it off on a quiet note.

Not as tense as their first one above, artwork just as fine-line and spare, overall effective.

"Sono Hosoude"
[Full title: Sono Hosoude de Tsukamu wa Yakeru Senkou ("What your slender arm grabs are the flashes of red heat")]

46 pages, black and white with gloss full-color cover.
R to X rated.

==Many, many thanks to champloo4u and aruarian_dancer for translations.



Brief summary by c4u:"I guess my biggest gripe has been the very dark psychological aspect of the story itself. (Poor Mugen was *very* traumatized by his awful past...) In a nutshell, if he's fighting (or f*cking) his blood is boiling...but if he is touched affectionately, he starts freezing. This, in turn, rather confounds and confuses Jin- who doesn't quite know what to make of it all. Jin's quite fond of him, [but] whenever he attempts to be anything other than rough and dominating...well... the fecal matter hits the rotational cooling device. And of course, Fuu is completely clueless about everything..."] Begins with Mugen recollecting his past--the island, Kohza, his meeting with Fuu and Jin; then the trio are walking, there's a quarrel, Fuu breaks the two up as usual; and then there's an extended sequence of Jin/Mugen sex, in which Jin uses physical restraint in an attempt to break down that tactile/carnal barrier. Mugen is uncomfortable at first ("It just creeps the hell out of me when he touches me afterwards. It cools off my blood to be touched like that."), but as they travel on the next day, finds that even Jin's briefly taking his hand raises his temperature... and Jin is thinking that it would be a waste to kill him just yet.--Lovely character dynamics, with Jin affectionate and tolerant of Mugen's mood swings and childish temper, and Fuu laughing that they both act like kids.

"Ankyo" (The Scarborough Fair)

56 pages, black and white with gloss full-color cover.
R to X rated.

==Many, many thanks to ryu_kk099 for the translations.



Continuation of [S]es' previous SC work. I can't say much for the art, but there's something about it that'll stay with you--it has some very tender moments, and a haunting quality of stillness and silence. As the trio travels, Jin suddenly collapses; Mugen produces some hidden cash, they get an inn room, and it's discovered that a recent wound has become infected, leaving Jin feverish and ill. Mugen, saying it's his fault (he gave Jin the wound, perhaps?) takes it on himself to perform the most primal kind of medicine, sucking old blood and pus from the wound and cleaning it with sake'.

Mugen confesses his longing to heal Jin and even his love for him in a remarkable inner monologue:

"Can't tell
Won't heal
Can't say
Want to embrace to touch to kiss
If only I could die (on top of you) as we lie with each other
[the word used is "fukujoshi", an antiquated expression about a man dying on top of a woman during sex]
What more to ask for
If only I could die with you in my embrace
[M instantly rejects such an uncharacteristic daydream of his]: No way! (Who am I kiddin'?)
[M's resistance and acceptance/resignation condensed in the last sequence]:
I'm. . . I'm afraid.
love you."

. . and there's an extended J/M sex vignette, with simple, stylized art and an odd, quiet intensity: Jin in turn considers how they became lovers, how it's become possible for him to accept Mugen inside him even though his body "was not made to take him in", and how Mugen's physical roughness and emotional tenderness (he heard that little "love you" at the end of M's monologue) combine to give him pleasure even though he feels as if his body and heart are breaking into pieces.

In the final sequence (this is a long one, yes), ryu_kk099 comments, "Basically, this story is the typical dojinshi melodrama where one character (here it's Jin, but I've seen it with Rukawa, Wakashimazu, Riki, etc.--I guess original BL stories often do this, too) who's quite accommodating with the physical aspect of (non)relationship, can't quite accept the emotional attachment that gradually grows between [him and] his partner. So here, Jin is okay with sleeping with Mugen, but when Mugen expresses his deeper feelings for Jin (the 'love you' part that's been repeatedly mentioned), Jin can't, won't listen to him. Not to mention, J cannot admit that he himself might return some of that feeling. (The writer's interpretation of J is that he never knew love, never has been loved, and thus, cannot grasp what love is even when it bites him in the behind--which is quite likely to be literal with M, I assume.)"]

"mugen champloo"

16 pages, black and white with two-color cardstock cover.
XX-rated hardcore: not for anyone under 18 or anyone at all who's disturbed by sexual violence.

Translation by "game over or continue" scanlation group, info from mayaserana.



This one deeply troubles me, and if I'd known more about it I might not have bought it. An object lesson in the very wide range covered by the word "yaoi".

The plot is straightforward. Jin and Fuu are eating in a restaurant; through the door they see Mugen race by, without his sword, gripping a fish in his teeth, and pursued by a gang of yelling, armed men (they're yelling that he cut-and-ran without paying for his meal). Fuu sends Jin off in search of him. We see Mugen captured, surrounded, sitting on the floor with tied hands (he thinks angrily that he was only caught because hunger has made him too weak to fight). One of the thugs draws a knife and cuts open Mugen's shirt ("Our guest's stomach is empty, let's fill him up"), and for the next four pages he's subjected to the most horrifyingly detailed and graphic gang rape/sexual assault I've ever seen in fan art. (I don't shock all that easily, but this did it.) -- Jin arrives, piles up thug corpses in two fast bloody panels, gives stunned and battered Mugen back his jacket and kisses him. Mugen is furious, apparently asking if he hopes to buy Mugen's favors this way, but all Jin does is appropriate the jar of erection stimulant one of the thugs was using--causing Mugen to take a poke at the real reasons for his seeming indifference to women. They agree to forget the whole thing, and Jin carries him back to the restaurant--where Fuu and Momo have passed the time eating and both are comically bloated to Marshmallow Man size.

To be fair, I must say the art is very handsome, good character renderings (even Momo-san!), finely shaded, detailed and expressive. (There's more very fine art on the website, though no more SC stuff that I could find.)
I would love to see this artist draw something I could bear to look at.

One star, for the high-quality artwork.

"Sokotsumono ten Matsuki: Mugen to Jin no Buraritabi"
(A Detailed Record of a Careless Person: Mugen and Jin's Casual Time)

36 pages, black and white with full-color cardstock cover.
Hard R to X rated, some explicit detail; several flavors of yaoi sex.



Summary by gat_x303: "A storm is coming, so the two get ready to stay shut in for the night. Of course, Mugen's idea of proper preparation is sake, sake, and more sake. Which is still not enough as he ends up having to lick the remaining drops off the barrel anyway. Then he tries to take Jin's share, and in the struggle spills sake all over Jin. Determined not to waste good sake, Mugen proceeds to lick it off Jin. And what a good lick it was, that Jin moans in response. Mugen laughs at Jin for losing control, and Jin retaliates with a rough kiss. Guess what, now Mugen's [called] weak for getting a hard on. But wait, he's not the only one! So then begins yet another one of their competitions, only this time the winner will be determined by whoever has more stamina to finish last."

More J&M lemon & lime here. (--for those of you new to the fan terminology, "lemon" is explicit sex with all the details shown, and "lime" is sex strongly implied but no details.) I'm very fond of this one, even though the art is a little overly stylized: heads and hands are often in odd proportions to the rest of the figures, and the guys both look too old and too sophisticated and jaded--this is Jin & Mugen if they'd gone off and lived together in Ura-Edo for five years. But it's top-notch lemon all the same, a full-length sexual adventure with a playful vibe even thugh it's a stubborn contest between them. Nonviolent, overall mischievous and positive in tone, which is way too rare in these things. ==(Comment: The more doujinshi I see, the sadder I find it that doujin-ka hardly ever have Mugen and Jin sleep together out of love, or even honest and mutual desire. Sokotsumono, along with Canary and Gongojoudo, is a lovely rarity in this world of force and trauma, and I appreciate it more all the time.)== --Note for those who are interested: this is one of the few in which Mugen gets to play uke to Jin's seme. Yeah...there's a reason why just about every auction listing for this one features that panel of Mugen's tattooed ankles locked around Jin's back...so if you like that image, well, you know what to look for. =)

By Duo Brand (Akatsuki Haruka + Watanabe Nobuyoshi) & Senkentoshi, who I believe have more Champloo doujinshi available as well.

There's some nice Champloo art at their web page.


"Stand Break"

24 pages, black and white with full-color cover.
PG-13 to R-rated; yaoi sex but much more implied than shown (like, 2 panels of sexual detail).


Another M&J yaoi, but this one has an odd subtle vibe which is hard to share in words. A moonlit night; Mugen enters the barn where Jin is sleeping; makes a suggestion ("just wondering if you'd want to have sex") which he refuses at sword-edge. They talk, come to some sort of conclusion, and proceed...and Mugen falls asleep on him afterward =)

The art is extremely fine-line and delicate, and the overall effect is oddly haunting. Worth finding.

"Utsuro"
28 pages, black and white with gloss full-color covers.
X-rated.


More from the prolific Akatsuki and Akiba circles. I like this one in spite of myself; there's a brooding, longing quality to it that offsets the rather abrupt and sudden sex. (and I do realize it might not be so abrupt and sudden if I could read it...) Jin and Mugen meet in the woods; Jin's hand is bleeding; Mugen seems accusatory; when they meet again Jin's arm is bandaged and he's clearly in pain, but seems to be evading something Mugen has guessed about the injury. When Mugen finds him sitting slumped under a tree there's what looks like a quarrel, followed by the aforementioned sudden sex (standing, against a tree, explicit detail). The art is handsome, a little angular and stylized, very clean, and I love the way the characters' eyes are drawn, especially Jin's--crystal clear and with a wary, hunted quality that's hard to forget.


Website: Akiba "Akatsuki".




"Koushaku"

28 pages, black and white with full-color covers.
PG to R-rated, I guess; only one explicit panel.


More Akiba circle; more strange, tense cat-and-mouse between Jin and Mugen that ends with Mugen between Jin's knees. (...even though Jin is a year older and an inch taller than Mugen, so far it seems no one will let him be the seme except Saimin and Duo Brand. One wonders...)







"Yumeutsutsu" ("reflecting dream"?)

28 pages, black and white with textured full-color covers.
PG-rated, actually.


More Akiba circle; and, yes, more still, stark, tense sex and silence between Jin and Mugen. Something went on between them that Jin won't talk about, but he's thinking about it.. Summary by kakure-yaoi: "One morning, when Mugen woke up, he was holding Jin in his arms. They were so drunk the night before and Mugen dimly remembers they did IT, but Jin says Mugen was just dreaming...."
...I'm not sure why I keep buying these. Must be the covers.







"Jokufukusousyoku (Samurai Champuloo)"

24 pages, black and white with textured B/W cover.
PG to R-rated lime.


OK, there's no explicit visual detail in this one, but the main story contains some of the hottest moments on this page. Goes to show you what an artist can do with subtlety, good direction, and high-quality storytelling skills. Potch does more with Mugen just untying Jin's hair than most of the others I've reviewed can accomplish with full-frontal exposure. Rough, passionate, high-intensity J&M lemon that you will keep going back to. Also in this one: a funny, short tale in which Fuu and Mugen realize they've both been daydreaming about Jin, and argue about it; a one-page "pin-up" of Jin, Mugen, and Mugen's sumo beetle =), and a sweet one-page vignette of Mugen dozing off against Jin's back while Jin is polishing his sword, and Jin not minding very much. A wide range of material in this one simple-looking little doujin. Well worth looking for.

(Wish I knew what its real title is; its credits are "presented by Potch at Show Saikawa, 2004.9". and inside "2004.9.26".)



"dogbite desire"

12 pages, black and white with B/W on buff cover.
PG-rated.



[title approximate via BabelFish]

Odd, funny little number with two stories: one a J/M sexual vignette with Jin playing seme to Mugen's uke (hooray! another one!), and using the hilt of Mugen's sword in, um, ahem, the manner for which its shape would suggest it's best suited (and that sounds a lot nastier and cruder than it is; it's very funny). In the other, J&M are both kitsune who find something unusual in the woods... There's also a one-page Mugen vignette which marks the only appearance, as far as I know, of the cast & crew of One Piece-- Sanji, Zoro and Luffy-- in any Champloo doujinshi; but relax, they aren't doing anything smutty (I suspect it's a pirate joke =).

By Toughgrip.



"Nishimuku Samurai"/"Easy Come Easy Go"

44 pages, black and white with gloss full-color covers.
PG to R-rated lime.


More from our friend Anoyoroshi (Rei Itidou), who also brought us the charming Jyuu. This one is a little heavier and darker, but still has Mugen in hot pursuit of Jin. There's some oral sex, some kissing, and a subtly hot sequence brought on by Jin and Mugen eating dumplings off the same skewer (little does Jin realize Mugen has poisoned three of them...). (Also a Jin/Yuki vignette; I'm glad to see this pairing starting to catch on with doujinshi artists.)
I love Anoyoroshi's big-eyed manga-art style and very glamorous version of Jin. =)





"Ameyoru no Tsuki (Rainy Night of Moon)"

78 pages, black and white with gloss full-color covers.
hard R to X-rated (several very explicit panels)



The longest Anoyoroshi production to date; explicit J/M sex but with a still, dreamlike vibe. One full moon night Jin and Mugen are together, and though the mood seems affectionate (hugging, holding hands, etc.) something's wrong; Jin needs to leave, Mugen objects, there's a rough moment and Jin departs. Fuu and Mugen discuss, clouds blow in and it starts to rain, and Mugen finally goes to look for him. Jin has come upon an abandoned dojo--I'm not sure it's actually intended to be the Mujuu, but it gives him a dark, bloody flashback, and we see a younger Jin, without his glasses, face calm and empty, holding a dripping sword. Present-day Jin wanders around the place, lies on the floor, gazes into nothing. When Mugen finds him he's standing in the pouring rain, heedless of it, possibly in tears or possibly just drenched; for a moment doesn't seem to recognize Mugen, who charges right in yelling at him, probably about the trouble he's caused and the rotten weather. Jin explains, his distress plain in his face; Mugen is taken aback, then steps close and embraces him, and they stand close, talking quietly for a few pages, finally getting Jin to smile. Several pages of limber and athletic J/M sex follow, during which one page is swiped exactly from Saimin's "enjoy the moon" and great visual attention is paid to Jin's nipples (though Mugen doesn't even seem to have any..) Finally morning comes, the rain ends and the guys return to Fuu, Mugen apparently cheerfully explaining all, to no one's distress. --Lots of sex here, but with such genuine affection that it never seems raunchy, despite Jin's pained expressions (maybe it's just supposed to indicate intensity..). And after Mugen has pursued Jin through so many of Rei-san's works it's kinda sweet to see his wish finally come true. =)--

By Anoyoroshi (Rei Itidou), 2005-03-21.







"Pushiganga"

24 pages, black and white with one-color cover.
PG-rated.



Quiet, dark little vignette. Jin has been roughly used by a cluster of faceless samurai (literally drawn with only shadows for faces, though their hairstyles show a wide age range), he's seen on the floor with a gag in his mouth, being handled by a number at once, and taken from behind. Now he seems quiet and withdrawn; Mugen approaches him familiarly, kisses him, looks surprised by his distance, then is openly startled at the sight of his bruises. Jin has an "it's nothing" look; Mugen grabs him, apparently demanding an answer; Jin brushes off his hand, seems to be in none-of-your-business mode. But Mugen takes his shoulders and leans his head on Jin's chest, seeming more distressed and baffled than anything else.--what makes this one different is Jin's icy self-possession and dismissal of Mugen's rather touching concern, a departure from so many of these in which Jin is an anguished but passive object of abuse; his attitude here unnervingly suggests intentional masochism instead.
Clean, simple art underlines the starkness of the storyline; an interesting piece.

By Murakumo; see also "B*Blue" below.



"B*Blue"
16 pages, black and white with gloss full-color covers.
X-rated, with several explicit panels.


This one's unusual for being set in the present and in modern dress. J&M are apparently roommates but not lovers, and Mugen would like to change that, despite getting a very solid rebuff (a hardcover book to the head!). Mugen lets Jin catch him jacking off, Jin tries to leave, Mugen grabs his arm, and things go as they usually go in these things. Nothing exceptional here, but the art is quite nice, and the modern setting gets it points for originality.

"Sakuragicho Blues"
96 pages! --black and white with gloss two-color covers.
X-rated, with several explicit panels.


This huge doujin (it even beats Saimin's anthology "S-Log/Remix" for size) is the work of a collective dubbed "Team Sakuragicho Blues" for the occasion, including Marimari, Murakumo, Garasuya Honpo and "Shibayama Champloos"; we already have a good deal of their individual work on these two pages. . There are (I think) nine stories and a number of very nice one-page pinups, including Yatsuha (yum!) and one of M&J dressed up in full Lolita regalia that you just have to see to believe (no points for guessing which of them carries that look off best!). The stories range from completely innocent (Jin carries Fuu across a river on his back while she quietly blisses out =) to low-key hurt-comfort, to a wide range of intimate combinations, including Mugen and Shouryuu (who forces Mugen to kiss him at knifepoint) and Moronobu paying Mugen and Jin to pose for some hot ukiyo-e smut (Mugen delightedly shows Fuu the handful of gold ryu they were paid, while Jin looks as if he'd like to hide under a rock for the next week).

The wildest thing here, though, has Jin back working at the kabayaki (eel) stand, with Mugen as his only customer. The carving knife is missing, so he does what Shino told him not to do, and slices an eel with his sword. Mugen points out, as Shino did, that that's bad luck; a vindictive eel (with an annoyed cartoon face) spits water at Jin, and suddenly we're in a totally bizarre erotic nightmare involving Jin, a writhing nest of eels ripping off his clothes, and not only the weirdest sexual assault but the first example of tentacle-rape porn in Champloo doujinshi to my knowledge (not counting Tsukiru's website). It really is a nightmare, in fact, from which he wakes in an aghast (well, mostly...) sweat, and you can't blame him.--Hands down, the damnedest thing in the stack to date.
