This is something that has been on my mind for a while. Cowboy Bebop and One Piece have been refereed to as the best of their genres, yet they are so different. The thing that got me thinking is when you look at both shows they are opposites in every way. Cowboy Bebop is a space western crime drama seinin focusing on a small group of bounty hunters. One Piece is a pirate shonen adventure comedy focusing on a large cast of pirates. They are so different and yet the reactions from anyone whose seen them is calling them the best. The thing that is most interesting is the way they were viewed in different country's. One Piece is essentially a franchise in Japan and frequently tops polls wherever it is. Cowboy Bebop is considered a treasured anime in America and is considered the standard when it comes to good anime. So I decided to open a poll to see what everyone else thinks on which is better. There is also an option on for people who don't really care for either so make your choice and discuss it.

As for my pick I would vote for One Piece because it has a lot of heart and a lot of emotion that makes you feel for the characters and the story.

As you said they are both very different. You might as well be asking, which is better , Beer or Apple Juice?

apple juice is definitely better

i haven't watched either, but since they ARE so different, in order to compare them i would think you would want to look at the consistency and development of the plot and characters. Which one does it better?

One Piece isn't even on the same level as Bebop.

....Very easy choice, Bebop. No offense to One Piece fans, but Cowboy Bebop is a classic and Im praying for the day that another anime comes out to match it. If anyone knows of one please send me a message about it.

If you've seen either, you wouldn't be asking. The answer is definitely Bebop.

I've seen both and while I like Bebop I like One Piece much more.

One thing that people should know about Bebop is that it did not do well in Japan and people there have pretty much forgot about it. I say this not to bash on Bebop but merely to say that the standards in Japan are not the same as the US.

You're trying to compare hot soup to a cake here. D: The shows are so different, how do you even have a fair comparison and contrast?

Cowboy Bebop shouldn't be compared to any other anime
