About this Anime:

Jin is a wandering ronin out for justice and food. Mugen is like a wild dog, picking fights with whoever looks strong. The both of them decide to have a sword fight in young Fuu's place of employment, and proceed to burn it down.

As her income source goes up in flames, Fuu tricks the two swordsmen into travelling all over Japan in search of a "samurai who smells of sunflowers." (Mugen isn't much help — he doesn't even know what a sunflower is.)

Along the way, they encounter funny grass, beat box and graffiti artists, con artists, baseball!, ...wasabi-eating zombies? And they learn what it's like to have a family, just in time to get hunted down by the Shogun.
