Yeah I know it's an upscale but you may as well go for it if you don't have it on DVD:

This is the newer blu-ray set; same video with a slimmer box.

I already own the blu-ray but I just want to say that this show is amazing. I wish they would do another season for it. =(

Wrong, the PQ is improved.

Source? Every review I've looked at said it was the same video with new packaging. I do hope you're right though!

Yeah, the picture quality seems really bad:

Seems the re-release didn't upgrade that either:

Thank you for contacting FUNimation. I apologize for the delay in response to your question. I was checking on your request. Actually, the discs were re-authored and we used new video.

We’re thrilled that you’re a fan of Samurai Champloo, and we hope you’ll be pleased with the new release.

Happened to be in my gold box this morning so I was able to get it at $26.59. Never had it on dvd and never seen it before. It's a blind buy, hopefully it's good.

If you have seen Cowboy Bebop and enjoyed it you will like this cause its from the same folks. This is the only Anime set I own Blu at the moment.

I own this and it looks fine, though I can't vouch for the picture quality versus the original blu release. This is around what I paid from Borders after the 50% off, so great deal. This quick price-slashing is really getting me to buy more anime blus at release instead of waiting for sales.
