I personally am surprised that there are people in the world who haven’t seen this series. Cowboy Bebop is a futuristic action/drama. It opens to a pair of bounty hunters, Spike and Jet, who wander the universe looking for work. Bounty hunting has become not only legal in this future, but encouraged, as it is obviously very easy for people to escape the law when inter-planetary travel is a reality.
The show itself is a work of art. It includes fluent fighting scenes, fast paced gunfights, high intensity space dogfights, and all of this to an amazing soundtrack of funky blues and jazz. The art style allows it to live up to it’s name COWBOY bebop, as it mixes the dirty, gritty atmosphere of the old west with ultra-modern space technology.
This series is often acclaimed as one of the greatest anime ever to grace this earth, and it’s is highly deserving of this title. Its relatable characters and ingenious writing make it like watching a work of god.
Don’t overlook the dub on this one. I personally loved the english voice acting, and most people agree that it’s worth watching the dub.
If you haven’t seen this series before, put it at the top of your “to watch” list.
