A classic, groundbreaking anime series released for the first time in the UK as a complete box-set. The action is centred around the misadventures of a group of bounty-hunters in the year 2071, travelling the solar-system in a rickety, old spaceship called the "Bebop," in pursuit of various wanted criminals.
While futuristic bounty-hunters are certainly nothing new, it is the heady, stylistic excess of the show that really sets it apart.
The series has a loose musical theme running through it with jazz and blues backing tracks and episode titles such as "Asteroid Blues," "Ballad of Fallen Angels" and "Mushroom Samba". This is combined with a bewildering mix of incongruent visual styles, from cyberpunk, beatnik, spaghetti-western, film-noir and various other cues from cult cinema and pulp genre material.

Despite such overt stylism, the series doesn't fall down in terms of storytelling. The cast are a compelling group of waifs and strays, striving to escape from and come to terms with shady pasts tinged with tragedy. While they function as a team and look out for each other to an extent, they also often "go-it-alone," and it is quite telling that they rarely pry into each other's personal histories and maintain a certain respectful distance from each other.

The set contains all 26 episodes, referred to as "sessions" in keeping with the musical motif of the show. The "Remix" in the title refers to both the Japanese and English soundtracks being presented in excellently-produced 5.1 surround mixes. Subtitles are available for the Japanese language option, but the English dub, (unlike with some animes) is actually very good.
Regrettably, the picture quality is not of the same standard.

I'm not an anime fan but i've heard enough general positive buzz about the series to take the plunge and buy this Remix boxset.

I'm glad I did. This is a superbly crafted series, appealing even to people like me who can't stand anime in general. Fantastically animated; characters you care about; a good mix of fun, dark and intrigueing plots; an excellent final ending and, last but not least, wonderful music that combines with everything else to make the series truly mesmerising.

I've watched the whole series twice in less than six weeks and I may do so again in the very near future, it's that good.

The 5.1 sound is amazingly good and the picture quality appears to be flawless. The back of the box claims improved picture quality so I assume this has had a remastering since the previous release.

All in all, this is a rare anime (in my experience) that has tremendous appeal outside the traditional anime fanbase. Highly recommended.

I don't feel the need to review Cowboy Bebop as there are plenty of others who have already done this - other than to say that I also think that its one of best anime series out there. However, if you want to own the series then the Cowboy Bebop Remix Complete is the best way to do it. Also, buy the movie.

My God, this series/collection needs to be re-released! I managed to win this set on eBay through an auction and it wasn't cheap! But the expensive price isn't the main reason this needs a re-release - it's because it's fantastic! More people need to see this as it's a classic!

I won't go into what the series is about as other reviewers have already done that, but what I will say is that it's so entertaining for so many reasons. The DVD picture, audio and subtitle quality is much better in this collection compared to the separate volumes; each episode usually has a different, self contained story - though some have an overarching storyline that centers on/around the character's backgrounds; the main characters themselves are really likable, cool and funny (I especially like Spike and Ed); there's plenty of action, mystery, comedy, a dash of horror (especially the episode 'Toys in the Attic', which reminds me of Alien), a dash of romance, some emotional scenes, some really cool jazz/blues music - especially the intro/outro pieces; a really bittersweet ending, and the series covers quite a number of themes that would probably go over the heads of younger viewers.

...Such an entertaining series and one of my new favorites. Recommended!!
