Cowboy Bebop Vol. #1
September 19, 2008
Release Date: April 04, 2000
Enter a world in the distant future, where Bounty Hunters rule the galaxies. Spike and Jet, bounty hunting partners, set out on journeys in an ever struggling effort to win bounty rewards (money) to survive. While travelling, they meet up with other very interesting people. Could Faye, the beautiful and ridiculously poor gambler, Edward, the computer genius, and Ein, the engineered dog be a good addition to the group? Gun fights, martial arts and the episodic nature is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Cowboy Bebop practically redefined anime in the late 90s and in watching the first few episodes it is evident on why it is referred to in this way. This first volume contains the first 5 episodes of the series: Asteroid Blues, Stray Dog Strut, Honky Tonk Women, Gateway Shuffle, and Ballad of Fallen Angels. Each episodes pretty much stands alone even though the series does have a plot that is kept in certain episodes. Each episode is a ride in and of itself. We go from a literal "dog" chase to a graphic gun fight in a church. The show contains well written scripts, great action sequences, and a jazzy soundtrack that is sure to blow you away. This is one of the best anime series ever and with its great cast, writing, action, and music it is a sure hit to check out. Highly recommended.
Cowboy Bebop Vol.1 is a must have in anime fans collection. Its a hit! Click here to read the staff review by Mania.
