If this thread makes it to when a mod is around, I predict it will be closed and redirected to an existing one.

The movie is just like the show. Nothing spectacular, but more Bebop goodness.

On the series itself, it's one of the first anime series I saw in their entirety (I think I watched Lain first, then Bebop) way back before there was even an adult swim. I think it's been like 7 years ago? I loved the hip jazz cyberpunk cowboy thing they had going on. I liked the contrast of drama and comedy. The major characters were all fleshed out and developed. And of course, the ending is a piece of anime history. It's also one of the few dubs I enjoy (that and Hellsing).

It's nice now that the series isn't as absurdly overrated as it was there for a while (god bless you naruto and bleach for distracting all the loudmouthed fanboy idiots).

Isn't it sad that a first rate anime like Cowboy Bebop is so easily forgotten because of the marketing genuises behind that swill known as Naruto. I haven't seen bleach yet so I'm not going to pass judgement on that particular show, but really...Naruto. Why is everyone so freaking obsessed with it? Frankly, I think it give a bad name to anime...the story is nowhere near as interesting as Bebop.

not to hijack this thread... but it's really all just formula shonen action. that's why us older fans don't give a rat's ass about naruto. we've seen it before. yeah each series has it's own twist and uniqueness, but it's all the same formula. Kenshin was my intro to the genre, most people's was DBZ. i enjoyed it, but i don't care to sit through another huge series loaded with filler with a few moments of glory (at least kenshin had all the cool history stuff going on). i've moved on to more interesting (and less time devouring) anime. in a few years, if you sitck with anime as a hobby, most of you will to.

Heh my gradual descent into anime-goodnes went a little something like: Akira-DBZ-Outlaw Star-Bebop.

To this day Cowboy is still the anime I tell newcomers to the scene to watch, as it is godly, I digged the whole cyber-noir feel it had going to it, along with the offbeat jazz n' blues. Stylistically it reminds me particularly of Blade Runner, of which I am unabashedly a huge fanboy of. Rutger Hauer baby. At the height of his Rutgeriness.

For some reason I hated the Bebop movie however...

I've heard rumors that there might be some type of sequel to bebop. spoiler:


not sure if that's wise with spike being dead. of course the director said weather spike died, or lived is up for the interpretation of the audience.

You know, I don't think anybody on this board understands the concept of spoilers. Next time try writing ""with the way the series ended" instead, that way you don't ruin it for everybody who hasn't seen the series yet (which is quite a few from what I'm gathering on this thread).

Aside from that, people have been speculating on a new Bebop for years. The movie was pretty much the closest thing we'll ever get to a sequal but that's okay with me. I think a sequal would cheapen the series. A prequal series with just Spike and Jet could be cool, or maybe a short OVA series about Spike's syndicate days.

I like the end...
