Fuu Kasumi is a youthful and clumsy server, spending her days working peacefully in a small teahouse. However, her tranquility is shattered when she accidentally spills a drink on a customer, leading to relentless harassment by a group of samurai. In desperation, Fuu calls upon another samurai, Mugen, whose unconventional fighting style, resembling breakdancing, swiftly dispatches the harassers. The situation takes a turn for the worse when Mugen picks a fight with Jin, an unwilling ronin with a precise and traditional swordfighting style. The clash results in the destruction of the teahouse and the accidental death of the local magistrate's son.

As a consequence, Mugen and Jin are captured and sentenced to execution. Fuu, however, intervenes and saves them, hiring the duo as her bodyguards. With no home to return to, Fuu is determined to find a specific samurai with the scent of sunflowers, and she enlists the help of the exonerated pair. Despite initial reluctance, Mugen and Jin agree to assist Fuu in her quest, leading the trio on an adventurous journey. The goal: to locate the mysterious sunflower-scented warrior, provided Fuu can prevent Mugen and Jin from killing each other.

Set in an alternate Edo Period of Japan, Samurai Champloo narrates the odyssey of these three idiosyncratic individuals in a quest brimming with action, humor, and dynamic sword fighting—all set to the distinctive beats of a hip-hop infused soundtrack.
