One of the best episodes ever to come out from any anime
2 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is arguably the best episode of the entire series that is without a doubt a masterpiece of a show. After four average episodes Ballad of Fallen angels comes as a tornado and takes everyone by surprise. The story involves Spike's past and his inability to escape it. His story in a way that can be described in no other words but Brilliantly. And introduces his arch nemesis who also captures the role of a ruthless villain beautifully. The episode starts of strong and takes viewers on a roller coaster ride. The soundtrack is masterfully done that captures every moment beautifully. Whole episode is full of thrill, tension and emotions. And the whole church shootout is certainly one of the most iconic scenes of the whole series. Overall this episode really proves what Bebop is all about and it is near perfection.
