Cowboy Bebop Reviews & Ratings

30 minutes

In the year 2071, the crew of the spaceship Bebop travel the solar system trying to apprehend bounties. In the slang of the era, "Cowboys" are bounty hunters. Most episodes revolve around a specific bounty, but the show often shares its focus with the pasts of one of each of the four main characters and of more general past events, which are revealed and brought together as the series progresses.

A great introduction to anyone interested in anime. Cowboy Bebop stands as one of the best anime ever created. Everything from the soundtrack, to the characters is just brilliant.

I normally don't write reviews, but I had to for this show after reading the travesty that was the only review for Cowboy Bebop on this site. "Nothing special"? I guess that's why this show was overwhelmingly rated 5 stars on this site. The characters are great, the stories are entertaining, and the soundtrack is literally the best soundtrack I've ever heard for any TV show or movie. I have the entire, several-album soundtrack and still listen to it regularly, years after the show was finished.

As the description says, this shows' about a motley group of bounty hunters who roam the solar system looking for that next payout so they can afford to eat. Throughout the series, pieces of each crew member's past come back to haunt them, leading to one of the most emotional endings seen on TV. If you like anime, sci-fi, or even just action and adventure, definitely give this a shot. It's one of the all-time greatest animes ever made.

From the makers of Gundam, this show is another well done outerspace universe but lacks the central driving plotline of Gundam. Amusing weekly epsiodes but nothing special.

At the most basic level it's a Space Western. But Bebop is not content to be merely that, so there are added dashes of film noir, gothic horror, creature-feature, black comedy, screwball comedy, spy action, crime, romance, tragedy, action, philosophy, scifi, spirituality, fatalism, optimism, buddy-buddy stories, slapstick humour, parody-- just about every type of tale under the sun appears in some shape or form during Bebop's run.

The animation is top notch, the music is AMAZING, watch this show!

if you have not watch this anime at all then your not into anime. the series is from the second golden age of anime in america which are from 97 to 04 it brought back the idea that content could have sex and violence without teenagers involved. it was a adult themed anime from the start and never falter from it original goal. it a detective story set in space. with great writing and incredible storytelling must watch and never the next person the ending

Best creation of its creator. Loved the twists and how not everything ends up perfect in the end.
