Just warning you, this spoils the last episode of Cowboy Bebop,






See you, Space Cowboy.


Edit : Thanks to Lorreen that changed the title, just realised i actually spoiled the end by accident. Mistakes are human i guess.

I've renamed the thread since the title was itself a spoiler. Please be more careful in the future.

from the cowboy bebop wiki


Although it is commonly believed that Spike is dead from his wounds, Shinichiro Watanabe, the creator, never actually confirmed the character's death and has purposely made the ending ambiguous to let fans decide Spike's fate for themselves. In a 2006 interview with Watanabe, he stated: "I’ve never officially said that he died. At this point, I can tell you that I’m not sure if he’s alive or dead." An indication for Spike's death might be a fading star at the very end of the camera's upward movement in the credits, though it could have also been Vicious's star. This could be an allusion to Bull's statement during a conversation with a kid in Jupiter Jazz Part 1/2 (Session 12 & 13) in which he states that a fallen star is in fact the tear of a warrior who has finished his battles and "could not find his way to the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all."

Either way, the story of Cowboy Bebop finished with Spike laying still on the floor.

Nobody's for-sure dead in anime unless they cremate the body officially and hold a ceremony :p

Even then, if magic or time travel (or both) are available, don't bet on them staying that way.
