Brilliant
1 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It doesn't matter if you love or hate anime you should see Cowboy Bebop, it brings in aspects from many different genres, cultures, and eras then blends them together to make something unique that is ultimately cool.

I am not a fan of anime at all, but after taking a risk and purchasing the series knowing little about it i was stunned... this is not your average freaky, seizure filled, cute and cuddly Japanese import.

The stories are action packed, funny, deep and very mysterious there is literally something for everybody.

What are you waiting for? See it now!
