Spike Spiegel is a bounty hunter in the far future with an easy going attitude and some deadly skill at martial arts. Together with his partners, Jet Black, and later Faye Valentine as well, they go from job to job across the galaxy looking for the high priced fugitives to bag.Written by

In Session #5: Ballad of Fallen Angels, two children try to steal pornography from Annie's shop. The character design for the black child was originally going to be used for Ed, until the director chose the white female one instead. See more »
Spike's hair changes from green to black repeatedly throughout the show. See more »
You told me once to forget the past, cause it doesn't matter, but you're the one still tied to the past, Spike.

The first episode begins with a montage of images from Spike's past, followed by the opening title sequence. All the other episodes (except the final one) begin with the opening title sequence. See more »
The "Best Sessions" collection cuts the long panning shot of the hypergates over the atmosphere of Mars at the start of Ballad of Fallen Angels. Also, in all episodes on "Best Sessions", the panning shots are sped up a bit for some reason, and the "Next Session" previews are absent. See more »
Cowboy Bebop is the best anime ever. I'm 21, don't tend to be fanboyish, and have seen plenty of others. And it's the best anime ever.
What other anime features a mix of the best choreographed/energetic/ kick-ass fighting scenes - hand-to-hand, hong-kong gun fights and air-space battle?
An unbelievable mix of comic, tragic, violent and fairy tale style episodes...
An incredible sound track - Yoko Kanno is a genius that can do memorable and emotional jazz, blues, classical, fantasy-style, j-pop and even heavy metal. I wouldn't even consider buying the soundtrack to any other anime.
It quite literally oozes "cool" - characters (Spike is probably the coolest - not awsomest, but stylishly coolest) music, action and narrative.
Hell, it's the only show that has both a "cute animal" character and a "cute annoying kid" character that I don't wish a horrible death upon. And if that doesn't convince you, then nothing will.
