The Review!
Spike, Faye Valentine, Ed, and the gang are all traveling about, meeting under strange circumstances, while hunting bounties just to keep from dying of hunger. On their travels, they meet many colorful characters, dangerous situations, and eat ANYTHING and I MEAN ANYTHING FROM SPACE GARBAGE TO SLUDGE! Funny, serious, cool, memorable, touching, and it even has the Syndicate (a mob).

Cowboy Bebop's packaging was one of the best and most functional that I have seen so far. It is as good as a poster and has a coffee table appeal to it. It comes with O.S.1 CD, and all six DVD's of the series.

The DVD's are done well and the quality of music and video doesn't show anything that would mean that they are flawed. The menu's are not sparse, yet not junk mail to the brim with extras. This is a good one to get, though you could probable get the same deal, minus nice box:( With the regular box set.

A must get.
