The year is 2071 and humanity has colonized many of the planets and moons in the solar system leaving the now uninhabited surface of Earth behind. Outlaw bounty hunters also known as ‘Cowboy’s’ help keep the peace in the galaxy. Spike Spiegel and Jet Black are two such bounty hunters who travel the solar system looking for bounties that can earn them some money on their spaceship, the Bebop. They meet several other characters during their travels, some which they add to their crew.
This is a classic anime and by watching it the reason it has stayed so popular for so long is that this is truly a great anime. I won’t go into much detail, but this series is made up of several episodes with self contained plots where Spike and Jet go after bounties. There is some stuff about Spike’s past, as well as the pasts of the rest of the crew, but those plot points are often sidelined by seemingly less important plot points. The only thing I didn’t really like about this series was how it ended so abruptly. If only it had lasted a few more episodes.
I recommend Cowboy Bebop to anyone who likes anime. This is a classic and helped increase the popularity of anime for adults. If you want to watch it you can find it on CrunchyRoll.
Final Rating – 49.9/50
