Reviews

The crew of the Bebop is once again ready to clean up space by bringing bad guys to justice and trying to make some cash while doing it!

Now for the first time ever this Anime classic is available in amazing high-definition Blu-Ray and packaged in a limited edition slipcase and containing bonus content never available outside of Japan before including the "Ein's Summer Holiday" short and a 40 page booklet.

Join the always-cool Spike Spiegal, investigative genius Jet Black, the alluring Faye Valentine, the amazing (but weird) Ed and the super-smart Welsh Corgi named Ein as they try to make a buck in the year 2071. How do they do it? They're bounty hunters!

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.

I was waiting years for the Blu-ray edition of one of my fav. anime series and the waiting is over thanks to the efforts of people from Anime Limited.
I have to say that this edition is done very good. The packaging is solid and with very nice box art. The extra mini artbook with designs from CB is also a nice addition to the set.
If it goes about the picture and soud quality then it's on very high level. For a anime made in 1998 the picture quality is excellent and it pleases my eyes.Audio is also very solid and good made.
Overall if you are a Cowboy Bebop fan or fan of the classic anime hits then I highly recommend this BR edition of the series.

This series is a successful blending of hard sci fi and pulp crime.

The story gradually unfolds, introducing you to the various players before drawing you towards a gripping conclusion.

This first part of the series contains a number of excellent stand alone episodes, as well as some excellent stories furthering the plot and fleshing out the background of our protagonists. Highly recommended.

I brought this thinking that it was going to be the same as the dvd but I was soooo wrong.
The animation is so much smoother and clearer, it looks brand new, when you watch the DVD's it looks its age but with this HD upgrade everything looks so much better. Which is just want I like.
I don't know if its just me but the sound quality is a lot better as well I found.
I don't have anything negative to say about this apart from a little graphic glitch on the second or third episode but its a blink and you'll miss it, its nothing wrong but some people have moaned about it and said its ruined the collection. It doesn't, not even close, your too wrapped up in watching it to notice anyway.

You get a nice little art-book as well as the stylish Blu-ray case, it shows early looking concept work for all the characters, inc. an alternative Ed, glad they stuck with the Ed we all know. But its very worthwhile getting even if you have the DVD's

ive only just started watching anime since the release of attack on titan, so i figured i would start with the classics. and after watching it, i can safely say that it is one of my favourites. the show is about a group of bounty hunters led by ex-cop Jet Black and smooth ladies man Spike Spiegel, accompanied by Faye Valentine, A con-woman with an unknown past and everyone's favourite goof ball, Ed.

the show, while short. is still an action-packed masterpiece. and after viewing i have suggested this too all my friends. even those that don't watch anime, and so i decided to this review hoping to convince you all to pick this up, you will not be disappointed.

Apart from the miss print on the disc's this release is pretty much perfect. Its presented in its original aspect ratio which is always good. The picture quality is fantastic except for the cg parts which I believe they did not have the masters for so its understandable and they dont look too bad anyway. Audio is fantastic and the English dub is great. 5 out of 5.
