Editorial Reviews

Explore the far reaches of the galaxy in this undeniably hip series that inspired a generation – and redefined anime as an indisputable art form.

The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motely lot of intergalactic loners teams up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot Jet is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh Corgi named Ein. On their own, any one of them is likely to get lost in the sprawl of space, but together, they’re they most entertaining gang of bounty hunters in the year 2071.

Yes, yes, yes, Cowboy Bebop is one of the greatest Anime of all time (in my top 3). However, I'm posting to inform you of the following 4 versions of this re-release of the Cowboy Bebop series:

- DVD standard edition
- Blu-ray standard edition
- FUNimation.com Exclusive BD/DVD Premium Edition
- Amazon Exclusive BD/DVD Premium Edition

What I've found so far is the following (thanks to Nicholas Gold for commenting on my original review)

FUNimation Exclusive Premium Edition

* Complete TV series on Blu-ray and DVD (combo pack)
* Exclusive Limited Edition tri-fold packaging in the style of a vintage record cover
* Display easel for packaging
* Four exclusive art cards
* One additional exclusive art card with foil-stamp autograph from series director Shinichiro Watanabe
* As of 9/12/14 Market Price is $89.98 and pre-order price is $64.98 directly from FUNimation

Amazon Exclusive Premium Edition

* Complete TV series on Blu-ray and DVD (combo pack)
* Exclusive Limited Edition clamshell art box
* 140 page black and white art book featuring concept sketches and designs that highlight Cowboy Bebop's origins
* 48 page vibrant, full-color art book
* As of 9/12/14 the Market Price is $99.98 and you can see the current Amazon Price above

So, as far as I can find so far, the actual content is the same. In my opinion, the difference is that the Amazon exclusive has more interesting physical extras. However, at a $25 premium. So, if you're a collector and don't mind shelling out another $25, then get the Amazon version. If all you care about is watching the videos, then the FUNimation version may be for you or the Blu-Ray standard edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back, space cowboys! August 20, 2014
By JLR
I remember the first time I watched "Cowboy Bebop" like it was yesterday. It was a cold Saturday night in September 2002 and I was eager to watch something fresh. This was during a time when Cartoon Network still hadn't reached a creative decline and didn't have ridiculous live-action shows cluttering the network like infested roaches. As I browse through the TV menu to see what I could watch on the channel, I accidentally highlighted "Cowboy Bebop" for Saturday night. I never heard of "Bebop" before, but what struck me about this show was that it was rated TV-14. Now back in those days, the highest rating of a show on Cartoon Network was TV-PG, so imagine my surprise when I found out that a Cartoon Network show that was for older audiences. Imagine my bigger surprise when this was an anime, which I never cared for at the time. But the biggest surprise was just how damn good this show was. Hell, it wasn't good. It was fantastic. Even though it was the final episode of "Bebop", I was immediately drawn into the show: it had interesting characters, marvelous art direction, exciting action scenes and...an ending that moved me to tears?!! No wonder this was TV-14; this show was created for the audiences' best interest, an interest that doesn't involve bulky robots, talking mice or space warriors spending three hours talking and three seconds fighting.

Much like how words cannot describe my love for "Cowboy Bebop", no review, no matter how long and deep, can entirely express the timelessness of that show. But I'll do the best I can. There may be greater Japanese cartoons. Cartoons of greater vision, emotional complexity and political importance. Cartoons that have significantly altered the course of an industry (ex: "Evangelion"). And even cartoons that we would put above it on our lists.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best anime series of all time, hands down August 19, 2014
If you're even a casual fan of anime I believe you will love Cowboy Bebop. Unlike many animated movies / series of its time, Cowboy Bebop isn't heavy handed nor super violent. Instead it concentrates on a fantastic group of misfit characters thrown together like a science fiction A-Team. The story telling, action and animation is superb. I also love how the series has a great sense of humor (as well as a cool soundtrack), something severely lacking in many animes. By the time the series wraps up you will really care about these characters.
A few years ago I had to hunt down the original DVDs that make up the series. I'm more than happy to buy this again on blu-ray!

Cowboy Bebop has been, since it's release in 1998, the bar by which every new anime series is judged by. It's just that good. Many have described it as 1970's cop show-meets western-meets high-quality drama-meets film-noir, and I am gonna have to agree with them.
Cowboy Bebop revolves around futuristic bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black, and the series is really just their exploits through the universe. Along the way, they meet female bounty hunter Faye Valentine, computer hacker Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky 4th (simply Ed for short), data dog Ein, and various bounties and figures from their past.
The beauty of Cowboy Bebop is that although the show does have a recurring story based around Spike's past, this is more or less tossed aside for "filler" episodes, or one episode storylines. Through filler episodes, we make a very strong bond and attachment to these characters, and it makes the ending to it all the more heartfelt.
When I watch Cowboy Bebop, I really do feel what happens to the characters. You feel sympathy and plight, happiness and joy, sadness and sorrow. You care about the characters, and I commend the staff who worked on the series for doing this. Very few anime series have characters for whom you can actually relate to, build bonds to emotionally, and frankly, give a damn about. Cowboy Bebop pulls it off with elegance and grace, as if it were nothing.
All in all, Cowboy Bebop is one of the best anime ever created, hands down. it has excellent characters, wonderful story lines, beautiful animation, and mesmerizing locales. It remains to be one of my favorites of all time.

I am so excited for this Blu-Ray release and can't wait to see what Funimation has whipped up this time in the release of this amazing nostalgic series for me.

Funimation releasing their own "exclusive edition."
Not as good in my opinion so sticking with Amazon's. No OST for those who wanted it either.

Nice! Perfect timing because "Winter is coming" and we all need as much entertainment as possible during those difficult times.

Does this include the movie?
Highly doubtful - Sony owns the rights to the movie, if I recall correctly.

Price increase?
Chillax, it might go back down. I (for some reason) held off on pre-ordering right away, and by the time I did, it went up by $20, so I was pretty pissed. I'm praying that it'll go back down (possibly even lower, since pre-orders get the lowest price listed at any time before release).
