Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lewis Somoza Manalo
According to Cowboy Bebop, jet-propelled lawlessness rules the future. Without the aid of planet-hopping bounty hunters -- space cowboys, if you will -- there would be no place for justice in the universe. So Jet Black, bounty hunter and pilot of the spaceship Bebop, cruises the galaxy with his cool-as-ice partner, Spike Spiegel, chasing the cash and loving the danger. Add renegade bounty hunter Faye Valentine and hacking whiz Edward to the Bebop's motley crew, and the hunts grow crazier, pursuing space smugglers, interplanetary terrorists, and common terrestrial thugs -- all to a swinging jazz soundtrack! In addition to having some of the best-looking contemporary animation, the series embodies all that can be called "cool" in modern anime: Inspirations range from Star Wars action to Clint Eastwood's sneer to Bruce Lee's kick. And amid the high-flying, hard-hitting action is a great character drama, as the developing story line delves into the shady, often tragic histories of the entire Bebop crew. Directed by Shinichiro Watanabe with an amazing score by Yoko Kanno Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop provides a cerebral "ker-plunk" for the anime fan who wants something headier than Pokémon but as kinetic as a great bebop record. This first DVD "session" includes the series' first five episodes: "Asteroid Blues," "Stray Dog Strut," "Honky Tonk Women," "Gateway Shuffle," and "Ballad of Fallen Angels."

    My favorite anime

    In a distant yet realistic future, two cool-as-ice bounty hunters roam the galaxy, catching criminals, meeting people, and even sometimes swimming into dangerous waters... If you're a fan of kung-fu, sci-fi, or comedy, you'll love Bebop. With a cool soundtrack, crystal clear animation, a great and mysterious plot, and colorful, believable characters, this anime is clearly one of the best in the galaxy.

    Great Anime

    This is one of my favorite series and probably has the best soundtrack I have ever heard on an anime. If you like cool dressed bounty hunters with guns, space ships, and a great stroyline don't miss this anime.

    Jammin' Bebop

    If your in any way an anime fan and haven't seen an episode of Cowboy Bebop you might as well abandon your self on Mars. Story: You will follow Spike and Jet on their interplanitary quest for money, at the expence of bounty hunting. Along their journies they meet friends and lose friends but are always sure have a laugh. Animation: The animation in this 30-some-odd episodes is astounding. The attention to detail will keep you watching it again and again. Fighting scenes are the pinnacles of the animation in this series, beautiful and tastefully realistic, which I think every movie sould strive for! Dubbing: The dubbing of this series is A+. Infact I think that the American voice overs actually fit the characters better than the Japanese!! For any anime fan this series is a must have. After finishing this series I don't think that there would be one fan not thursting for more!!!
