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.

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.

I'm going to write this review assuming that the person reading it has never seen an episode of Cowboy Bebop, but I hope those who have seen it will read it and agree with me. I have revisited this series multiple times since first discovering it as a teen, as most Americans did, during Cartoon Network's late night Adult Swim. The 26 part series means a lot to me so I thought I would throw my two cents in and write a review because I think most of my friends and family would think I am crazy if I showed this much passion for something like this.

But first let me get something out of that way. Cowboy Bebop is classified as an anime, and while it's true that this series is Japanese animation, to merely categorize it as such could not and never will give this series a just explanation of what it truly is - a master piece of cinematography and story telling. So let me attempt to enlighten those who might "judge" the fact that it is an anime; I truly believe that animation is the only medium that could have truly pulled off what this series accomplishes perfectly. I think Shinichiro Watanabe (the director) knew this as he has literally written within the series its self (during the animated transitions) that (and I'm paraphrasing) "the work that will become a genre unto its self shall be called Cowboy Bebop" because there truly is nothing like it when you look at it as a whole. Keanu Reeves also discovered this when he and 20th Century Fox planned on adapting it but discovered that to pull it off it would cost $500 million. So in other words, animation is the only way that this story could have been told.

And wow, what a story.

Amazon exclusive is sold out?
I had no idea limited really meant limited this time if that's the case, I'm hoping it comes back up as I was waiting to buy it. If not I'll have to just get the regular blu release

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.

Available on Amazon.co.uk?
I think in the official Funimation website it says it's region A/1 and in the website 'Bluray' it says Region A (B, C, untested)... I'll update if I find the answer, though.
