The year 2071 A.D. That future is now. Driven out of their terrestrial eden, humanity chose the stars as the final frontier. With the section-by-section collapse of the former nations a mixed jumble of races and peoples came. They spread to the stars, taking with them the now confused concepts of freedom, violence, illegality,and love, where new rules and a new generation of outlaws came into being. People referred to them as Bebops. Meet Spike and Jet, a drifter with a dark past and a retired cyborg cop who have started a bounty hunting operation. In the converted ship The Bebop, Spike and Jet search the galaxy for criminals with bounties on their heads. Along their adventures, they meet a lot of unusual characters including the unusually intelligent dog Ein, the voluptuous and vexing woman Faye Valentine, and the genius kid hacker Edward.

Favorite Episodes: all episodes

This series is one of my favorite series because of the story. Everyone in this anime is connected to each other because they all have troubling pasts that always seem to come back to them. Cowboy Bebop goes into all the main characters’ pasts (back stories) which is not easy to do. So though Spike is the main character, the other main characters are given just as much importance as Spike. I also like Cowboy Bebop because the anime is from the 1990’s when most of the anime was hand-drawn. A majority of the today’s anime is never hand-drawn because of the insane amount of time that is taken to draw and animate a series. And I also like the music used for this series, which is Bebop Jazz. Shinichiro Watanabe (Director) mixes anime series that he created with specific genres of music in order to emotionally sync the music to the anime and make the anime feel very natural when played with the music.
