Average Rating

In the year 2071, humanity has colonized several of the planets and moons of the solar system leaving the now uninhabitable surface of planet Earth behind. The Inter Solar System Police attempts to keep peace in the galaxy, aided in part by outlaw bounty hunters, referred to as "Cowboys." The ragtag team aboard the spaceship Bebop are two such individuals. Mellow and carefree Spike Spiegel is balanced by his boisterous, pragmatic partner Jet Black as the pair makes a living chasing bounties and collecting rewards. Thrown off course by the addition of new members that they meet in their travels—Ein, a genetically engineered, highly intelligent Welsh Corgi; femme fatale Faye Valentine, an enigmatic trickster with memory loss; and the strange computer whiz kid Edward Wong—the crew embarks on thrilling adventures that unravel each member's dark and mysterious past little by little. Well-balanced with high density action and light-hearted comedy, Cowboy Bebop is a space Western classic and an homage to the smooth and improvised music it is named after.

An unmistakable masterpiece. Blending many styles and genres while staying true to its own rich story and characters.


A space western filled with jazz, action, and the cutest corgi this side of Jupiter. All I got to say to that is….Let’s Jam!


Bebop is a show I will never tire of. The episodic nature gives us the chance to see the cast in various situations and works in its favor.


An undeniable stone cold classic thanks to its memorable vignettes, existentialist themes, rule of cool, and Yoko Kanno’s iconic soundtrack


Cowboy Bebop is one of the most beloved and culturally diverse anime of all time. And I highly encourage you to see it…in English


Great opening, great story, good characters and the series’s ending basically leaves it up to the viewer to decide what happens.


A little overrated.

    I am a member of the Zoldyck family, who are a family of legendary DMCAers. Since birth, I trained endlessly in the art of encoding. I eventually ran away from my family and profession out of boredom and joined the Anime Kaizoku website to pass the time.


    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
