I'll begin with the positives. The animation manages to match the quick, fluid action scenes of the animé and each character is well-drawn, easily resembling their on-screen incarnations. The stories themselves are very reminiscent of the more light-hearted episodes of the animé and capture each characters' uniqueness effectively. The classic Bebop style of humour is also present and works well in this manga collection.
However, my main complaint is that the manga series doesn't really go very far. All of the stories, as mentioned above, are light-hearted and none capture the darker side of Bebop or develop a compelling storyline like the animé series managed so well. This is the kind of manga you read during your spare time or if you're feeling down after the end of the animé series but not the kind you really get really involved with. All in all, a nicely presented manga collection but don't be surprised if you forget about it straight after.
Like all works of genius, cowboy bebop is difficult to categorise, maybe even as it itself somewhat arrogantly states, genre defining. It follows the somewhat accidental adventures of Spike Spiegel, bounty hunter extrodinaire with a ...shadowy past... Don't be put off by this formulaic sounding dull description though. BeBop is colourful, funny, exciting, sometimes even heartbreaking. And it features what i'd class as the greatest ending of any series ever.
If you haven't seen it, buy it.

One of the cutest stories is about Ed's past, when she meets an old firend under unusual circumstances.. but I won't spoil it for you!! *wink*
For die-hard Bebop fans, this is a must have. If you want an introduction to the series... well, it worked for me, it was just a little confusing at first. I think you'd enjoy it none the less...
It was most affordable of all the Cowboy Bebop Boxed Sets available, and it was also in the best condition. Brand new! Still in the plastic!
I haven't read the whole set yet, but what I have read was entertaining and enjoyable!
