Show Summary

Cowboy Bebop is an action-drama anime that centres around four bounty hunters and their dog. It first premiered when Cartoon Network launched a block of cartoons aimed at older audiences called [Adult Swim] on Sunday September 2nd, 2001. Japanese Title: 「カウボーイ・ビバップ」 Characters: Spike Speigel, Age 27: The protagonist of the series in which most of the show revolves around. He once belonged to a syndicate called the Red Dragons, but left for his own reasons. He now spends his time bounty hunting. Unfortunately, he finds his past starting to catch up with him. Jet Black, Age 36: The oldest member of the crew and owner of the star ship Bebop. He once worked for the I.S.S.P (Inter-Solar System Police), but left because of corruption. He is also known as the "Black Dog". Faye Valentine, Age 23: A master con-artist, Faye is a drifter with a mysterious past who just happened to come across the Bebop. There is a very large price on her head due to a massive amount of money that she owes to creditors. Beautiful, smart, and cunning, she is definitely one to keep both eyes on. Edward Wong Hau Pepalu Tivrusky IV, Age 13: The youngest member of the bunch. Ed is the genius, if somewhat bizarre, hacker that rounds out the Bebop. She is pretty silly and not really up there at times, though she is still a valuable member of the team. b>Ein: Ein, a welsh-corgi, was once a lab animal. As a test subject, his brain has been greatly enhanced. Due to this, he is actually smarter then the rest of the Bebop crew. Most of the time you'll see him hanging around with Ed during the series. Japanese Airdates While three episodes of Cowboy Bebop did not air on [Adult Swim] during the series first run on the network (see below under "Episodes"), more than half of Bebop, fourteen episodes in all, did not air during its first run in Japan on TV Tōkyō (Japanese: テレビ東京) in late spring of 1998. Cowboy Bebop was acquired in the summer by WOWOW Network and broadcast in its entirety in late 1998 and early 1999.moreless

      I'm sorry, but I've seen this series multiple times and still can't get into it as much as other people. I find half the show to be average or boring. The other half to be pretty good.

      "And the work that will become a new genre will be called: Cowboy Bebop"



      This is a series that knew exactly what it was and was so well planned that it puts most other Anime to shame! It transcends the genre and becomes something completely unique with it's intricate storyline, developed characters, great animation and one hell of a soundtrack. Spike Spiegel's 26-Episode journey is more tightly woven and masterfully presented than most stories in general. An action-packed series that smartly intergrates the past and present with the episodic plot; the backstories are all simply perfect for each character the show perfectly balances all these aspects to provide a more engaging narrative. It truly is a classic!moreless
    • One of the greatest and most influential TV Series of all time!

      This is the show that revolutionised the Anime genre and created it's own sub-genre by being as unique and fresh as possible. There isn't a single show quite like it, and this brilliant blend of sci-fi, western and film noir style works for it's favour!



      Aside from the magnificent atmosphere created by the show's world-building, animation and music, there's also a perfect underlying plot going on that utilises these well-developed character's maximum potential. The voice acting is absolutely incredible (both Japanese and English) - Spike Spiegel is one of the greatest main protagonists of all time and the show is just amazing in general!moreless
