Review

"While focussed on their constant struggle to capture bounties and pay the bills - perhaps the crew of the Bebop should be more concerned by what may catch up with them. Ghosts from the past, psychedelic mushrooms and justice-obsessed cowboys - Spike, Jet, Faye, Ed and even Ein have their work cut out in the final half to the series! --Ign --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Complete collections of Shinichiro Watanabe's masterpiece 'Cowboy Bebop' have always popped up for sale on Amazon intermitently over the years, but more recently all that's been available online has been a clutch of used copies costing an arm and a leg, so it's great news that this series is getting a new release.

Kastuhiro Otomo's anime film Akira is often cited as being one of the most influential works in its genre, but Cowboy Bebop is equally as seminal. The series takes aspects of the Wild West and sets it circa 2071. Underpinning the entire thing is a blues and jazz soundtrack of pure perfection. The opening theme 'Tank!' merits its own appreciation society while the scene played over Yoko Kanno's 'Green Bird' in episode 5 is beautifully hypnotic and enchanting. Those enamoured with the prominence of hiphop music and subculture in 'Samurai Champloo' will find this series every bit as appealing- no surprise when you discover Watanabe is responsible for both anime!

Story-wise, the series is similarly paced to 'Samurai Champloo' as well. It follows the crew of the spaceship Bebop as they meander through space and fail to live up to their bounty hunter profession. The characters' pasts are all explored as the series progresses, but beyond that is just the sheer quality of the ideas behind each story. Some are absolutely inspired! Antagonists, too, in the series such as Mad Pierrot are ingeniously developed.

To some, 'Cowboy Bebop' might seem a little ramshackle with too much kitchen sink, but really the whole thing is held together by its musical underpinnings and the strength of its individual stories. Plus, a handful of the episodes are named after Rolling Stones songs so I mean what could POSSIBLY be better?

Cowboy Bebop is one of my all time favorite anime and it's the show that really made me interested in world of anime, the guys at Anime Ltd did a superb job with their release. the packaging is fantastic, the best packaged DVD I own. the video quality is superb and the menus are great, my only problem with this product is that both English dub and full English subtitles are on by default which i find strange.

This is a fantastic dvd and i would recommend it to anyone interested in anime or sci-fi, full marks from me.

Cowboy Bebop is generally said to be one of the best anime series in the catalog, but this isn't just for anime connoisseurs, this is for anyone who wants an entertaining space western romp filled with meaningful narratives and set to gorgeous music. Think Firefly's cast and atmosphere fused with the soundtrack and laid-back style of The Beiderbecke Affair and you'll be getting a rough idea. To start off, many of the episodes here are not for younger children, the delicate-minded, or people expecting all-action and no plot: the stories frequently deal with violence, drugs, the darker side of crime and punishment, and themes involving the perception of life and a person's sense of self and presence. These are not gratuitous inclusions, but an integral part of the experience: do not skip. Also remember: this is twenty-six episodes across six discs, each roughly half an hour long and as dense as they can come. If you want to appreciate it properly, you should not take in the whole series in a single sitting, but spread it out over a few days. Also note, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is not essential to the enjoyment of the series, but it's a nice edition and provides a great introduction for newcomers nervous about plunging head-first into the series itself.

Without spoiling anything, the stories of each episode are very good, and some are almost hypnotic the way they draw you in. They range from saddening to electrifying to utterly hilarious, and the homages to classic western films are many and enjoyable. The main attraction here is the characters, which are some of the best realized not just in anime but in television in general. Spike may be touted as the main character, but that's a bad mistake to make.

Because Cowboy Bebop was heavily influenced by western sci-fi greats and music, it does away with almost every anime cliche in the book. The end result is the perfect marriage of what makes anime great, and what makes western sci-fi great.

The good -

The story and script is perfect. Shocking moments, amazing and hilarious dialogue, great characters. EVERY corner of the storytelling puts other anime and TV shows to shame. Action in this is masterful - certain fight scenes are done so well that I found myself rewinding the episode just to watch it again.

The art style and direction is jaw-dropping. There are so many memorable scenes where you'll think "this could be a painting!". All the ships, locations and characters look original and just plain cool.

The music is probably my favorite part of the show. It's a mix of neo-noir jazz and 90's indie rock, but with a few other genres thrown in. Every music track is used expertly and fits the scene so damn well. You'll find yourself grinning at how well the music accompanies certain scenes.

The bad -

what?

Conclusion -

There is a reason this is considered the greatest anime that ever lived. It throws away everything you know and hate about anime, but keeps everything you love. It combines everything great about western and eastern TV into a sprawling sci fi epic. Dark action and themes have never been married so well to feelgood comedy and characters. Music, art and atmosphere has never been so perfectly achieved. I literally cant find enough words to describe this masterpiece. Just buy it!

oh, and the english dub is very good.
