Spike Spiegel, a bounty Hunter with a dark past, lives on bounty to bounty, barely making it each time, or not making it at all. His partners Jet Black, Faye Valentine, Ed and Ein the dog all help him in his adventures from planet to planet.
Its 26 episodes ("sessions") comprise a complete storyline: set in 2071, the series follows the misadventures and tragedies of a group of bounty hunters, or "cowboys”, traveling on their spaceship, the Bebop. Cowboy Bebop centers around American music and counterculture, especially the beat and jazz movements of the 1940s-60s and the early rock era of the 1950s-70s, which the original soundtrack by Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts recreates.

One of the hands down best anime series ever created. Follows the story of two bounty hunters (Jet and Spike), a woman (Faye Valentine), a young orphaned female hacker (Ed), and a partially robotic dog (Ein). The art and music are flawless, the characters are realistic and interesting, and the plots and numerous sub-plots are unique, original, and all around amazing. If oyu haven't seen this show watch Adult Swim at 1:30 am, then buy all the dvd's of it you can find. Also buy the soundtrack/s, the musical score is amazing.
ive seen the whole series 3 times and it gets better each time

Best anime show on this earth. Has the best music ever, with the most perfect charachters ever. Who gives half a flying fuck whether or not it's cencored on cartoon network? I love it anyway!
Faye Valentine is my idol from Cowboy Bebop (so I am naturally very hot).

The only decent animé on Australian TV, and perhaps American (I wouldn't know). Each episode's plot is generally different to each other episode. Action, entertainment and a small hint of comedy. Cowboy Bebop has it all.
Ein is German for 1. See, Cowboy Bebop is as educational as it is entertaining.

One of the greatest anime ever invented. The blend of action, style, music, and plot is completely amazing. The show flows smooth as water right through the end.
Oh man, I just watched the ENTIRE CB series in one day! and i'm gonna do it again tomorrow!

Film noir at its best. Perfect cinematography, drawings, amazing character development, and the music is flawless. The truth is i hated anime until i watched this. Its like watching a Kubrick or Zhang Yimou movie. Btw trigun sucks and DBZ i dont even have to mention. If u hate anime watch this and tell me again.
Bebop man u kno the deal.
