Product Description

The shocking conclusion! Spike is still on the trail of the woman of his dreams, his old girlfriend Julia. When he finds her, what will the future hold? And Spike and Vicious are reunited one last time. How will it all end?

Amazon.com

The past comes back to haunt each of the characters in the sixth installment of the popular noir sci-fi adventure. In "Brain Scratch," Faye is drawn into an eerie cult that promises electronic immortality and an end to worldly cares. Director Shinichiro Watanabe juxtaposes flashy television graphics with gritty, gray reality, as Ed hacks a path to the truth. Next, Faye and Ed confront different yet linked pasts in "Hard Luck Woman." Ed (who turns out to be a girl) finds her long-lost father; Faye learns she can't go back to the world she knew before a devastating accident. The two-part epsiode "Real Folk Blues" returns to the saga of Julia, the woman Spike once loved, who appeared in "Jupiter Jazz" (episodes 12 and 13). The icy Vicious's attempt to take over the Red Dragon mob draws Spike and Julia into a deadly web of revenge.

"Real Folk Blues" marks the end of Cowboy Bebop, arguably the most stylish and sophisticated anime series in recent years. This last adventure will leave viewers with the same sense of loss they experienced when the first Star Wars trilogy ended. Although no further television episodes are planned, a feature is in the works. Fans can look forward to seeing their favorite Space Cowboy in the not-too-distant future.

Not rated: suitable for ages 13 and up for nudity, violence, adult situations, and unflattering ethnic characterizations. --Charles Solomon

Customer Reviews

Great characters, great stories, great music.
Dr. Michael A. Rinella
I won't go into the awesomeness of Cowboy Bebop other than to say that it is the best anime series ever, I'd even call it one of the best television shows ever!
G. P. Simon
I didn't want it to end, but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

Ultimately the finest and most renowned expression of the blues is perhaps Robert Johnson's 'Crossroads' which relates the emotional tedium of choosing a definitive direction in the middle of one's life. The last four episodes of 'Cowboy Bebop' slowly bring forth difficult and melancholy situations detailing the inner workings and underlying turmoil of the Bebop crew's lives. A subtle and unique blend of sci-fi/fantasy/action/intrigue/drama cap this series definitively with the same unpredictability that has been the hallmark of this fantastic animation milestone.
'Brain Scratch' is probably the most disjointed and experimental episode from the entire series. Using a choppy cutting style to survey the television programming of 2071 the director gives us another quick peek into culture surrounding the solar expansion of humanity. Faye has left the Bebop and appears curiously in middle of a brain washing cult led by one of the few remaining bounties. A rather odd combination of self observation and current event parody encompassing video games, internet, Heaven's Gate, Doh Applewhite, television and its elusive control over people. 'Hard Luck Woman' reveals Ed's odd past on Earth, and allows a sort of closure to Faye Valentine's past. You finally see Faye regain her memory and touch on her past life as Ed revisits her old orphanage and finds her father who is Bebop's latest and last bounty. These first two episodes on this DVD slowly begin the set up for the series' somber finale in 'The Real Folk Blues I & II'. I don't wish to detail the final episodes too thoroughly in order to avoid spoilers. Julia emerges as a tangible character for the first time and meets Spike.

Few anime series have touched me as a viewer, and I am glad to say that Cowboy Bebop has developed into such a series. From the fun of the first episode to the revelations of the final DVD in the series Cowboy Bebop portrays an incredible spectrum of the human condition, ironically enough in a future that is just within belief. A lot of viewers see a common Japanese anime in the first few episodes. Little connection between plots, and relatively 2D characters. But in the long run, the driving force of the story as a whole becomes the characters themselves. Their pasts, their pains, and their futures rapidly become the focus of every episode, sometimes in lengthy exposition, but most often in interconnected montages of the past, and its effect on the present. This final DVD relies heavily on the past, drawing on Spike's oft-alluded life on Mars, while revealing the truly emotional aspects of the relationships between all of the characters. Spike has often been portrayed as a callous opportunist throughout the series, with brief glimmers of humanity and compassion, yet this, much like every other aspect of this series, is subject to change. Perhaps one of the most redeeming factors of this anime is the return to a concentration on Spike in the last few episodes, as he is certainly one of the most intriguing and mysterious characters seen in recent anime. Yet, like all good things, this anime must come to an end at the seemingly requisite 26 episodes. And what a ride it has been! One of the most interesting aspects of the series is the underlying feeling of hope, for a variety of things, each depending on the characters.Read more ›

First and foremost, the person who wrote the review is a kid and probably thinks that Dragon Ball Z is the greatest anime show ever created. Which to that I say, "Ha"! With this being the case this "kid" should stop watching anime all together. Especially if he or she cannot appreciate great anime, so maybe you're better off watching Spongebob Squarepants. Even though that's not anime it's probably more the "Kid's" speed. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to bash anyone. But posting this kid's review twice was just stupid.

Now for a real review on the sixth session, this is the ultimate wrap-up of a great series. I don't want to spoil anything for the people who haven't seen this series yet. So I can't go into get detail about this session. But I will say that everything comes to a head: the relationship between Spike, Julia, and Vicious, what Ed is going to do with the rest of her life, the faith of the Red Dragon, and of course you can't forget about Faye and Jet. Session 26 is truly a great ending, one of the best ever seen in an anime series.

I just want to tell everyone when it comes to being an anime fan there are a few animes that are mandatory to view, they are: 1. Cowboy Bebop 2. Trigun 3. Vampire Hunter D 4. GTO 5. Bastard! 6. Pet Shop Of Horrors 7. Kenshin(OVA)

One last thing, you don't have to see "Akira" to be an anime fan. That movie is just a waste of time and it just sucks. See HaloKillah's Review.

Occasionally, one is tempted to treat the Cowboy Bebop series as lightweight fare. The byplay and humor distract us from the darker underlying themes. Thus, we never have to deal directly with the fact that each of the characters has one thing in common with the others. Their pasts are at loose ends, and the lack of a sense of completion can easily become their worst enemy.
'Brain Scratch' - A cyber cult entices its members to lose their egos on the web and commit suicide. The offer of freedom from her own problems proves too enticing for Faye. Spike and Jet move in to rescue their partner and make a run on the bounty for the cult's leader.
'Hard Luck Women' - The Bebop has two - Faye, who cannot remember her past, and Ed, whose past is... obscure. For both, this episode offers a decisive moment and brings out the difficulty of making decisions that feel like two-edged swords. This is the turning point. Cowboy Bebop heads into its last innings having made clear that the conflict between history and the present is the real theme of the series.
'The Real Folk Blues' - Spike's turn now. The deft combination of noir and humor that director Shinichiro Watanabe has used throughout the series to keep the viewer's attention has made sure that, no matter how prepared we thought we were, the concluding two episodes with be a shock. Much like Robert Crais' novels, you are in the soup before you see the spoon coming. Even so, these episodes stand out for acting that is spot on - tragedy with a last, sassy twist.
I'm going to miss this series. A light, frothy comedy that gathers depth as it builds momentum. And wonderful music by Yoko Kanno. There is a film release on the horizon, but I'm not sure I can wait for it. I may have to go back over the series again and maybe again. This is something worth owning.
