Cowboy Bebop is one of the oldschool anime that i like alot. its an art style thats not too pretty boy yet still highly attractive to me. these days most of the anime/manga are of ridiculously pretty boys that looks like girls and the violence/humor in them are not as plentiful. sigh. either that or im running out of my usual genre(animes just arent as violent/dark anymoreeeee) and straying to others(shoujo) hence the pretty boys.
Cowboy Bebop (カウボーイビバップ Kaubōi Bibappu?) is a critically acclaimed and award-winning 1998 Japanese anime series written by Keiko Nobumoto, directed by Shinichirō Watanabe, and produced by Sunrise. Its 26 episodes (“sessions”) comprise a complete storyline: set in 2071, the series follows the adventures, misadventures and tragedies of five bounty hunters, or “cowboys”, travelling on their spaceship, the Bebop. The series explores several concepts involving philosophy, including existentialism, loneliness, and existential ennui.
The series' art direction centers on American music and counterculture, especially the beat and jazz movements of the 1940s–1960s and the early rock era of the 1950s–1970s, which the original soundtrack by Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts recreates.
Cowboy Bebop was a commercial success both in Japan and international markets, notably in the United States. After this reception, Sony Picturesreleased a feature film, Knockin' on Heaven's Door (2001), to theaters worldwide and followed up with an international DVD release. Two manga adaptations were serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's Asuka Fantasy DX.
Yes yes. TL;DR. essentially its 3 paragraphs how you should watch it cause you wont regret it.! ive watched the anime series at least twice and recently i stumbled upon the movie.! the movie feels like an extended episode. nothing too special but if you like a series, the more the merrier.! i dont ever want it to end. the sense of emptiness when it ends. le sigh.
best anime + music combo ever.
the plot goes along the usual bounty hunting of a criminal but there are poignant scenes that make it memorable. the philosophical nature of certain bits and the sad romance of Vincent. -wipes tear away dramatically- also, its one of the few instances that Spike seem human.! hehh. i love Ed too. the way she wiggles and speaks. hee. ﾉ(´・ω・)ﾉ
one of the scenes that kind of sum up my 2011. lets hope 2012 will be more forgiving.
the bgm for the movie is nice as per all bebop sessions. hahaha. the last fight scene between Spike and Vincent had the nicest music i feel. around the 1:43:00 mark. the jazzy feel. yaye to nice bgm.! also, watch the movie in its entirety including the credits. ( ´∀` )
