Samurai Champloo: Stranger Searching (Redheaded Foreigner)   Rewatch 
March 15, 2015 3:23 PM - Season 1, Episode 6 - Subscribe

Jin, Mugen and Fuu enter an eating contest, thinking they can get free food. Unfortunately for them, there is an entry fee that Mugen and Jin paid with their swords, which they would get if they won the competition. It comes down to Fuu and a mysterious, large foreigner, and Fuu loses on a technicality. The stranger offers Mugen and Jin their swords back for a tour of Edo (old name of Tokyo), which is also foreign to the trio, but Jin forges ahead. When they run into trouble, Mugen and Jin defend the stranger, only to learn that stating his name and role would give him free access of the country.

There are plenty of anachronisms and finer points to learn about, if you really want to dig deep into this episode. There is more wordplay in the script than prior episodes, from what I understand.

That's the second time the Netherlandshave come up. I knew about the Company, does it have such a historical influence in Japan?
