Show Recommendation: Cowboy Bebop

Characters from Cowboy Bebop with all their faces squeezed into the frameI know I’m WAY behind the curve on this one, but with the Cowboy Bebop live action show in the works, I’m trying to get through the entirety of the anime series (and movie) in advance!

It’s alternate parts ridiculous and weird, and I’m a little surprised that no one has been able to make me sit down and watch it before now. Radical Edward has been my favorite character since long before I actually watched the show, just from hearing descriptions and the name. Now that I’ve finally seen it, I am even more in love with Ed. After watching a recent episode in which Ed said, “Baka! Baka! Baka!”, I’ve been repeating that in the exact same intonation, and it makes me giggle.

So yeah, sometimes you just need a popcorn show, and for me, Cowboy Bebop is exactly that. I’m certain there’s a deep storyline in there too, which I’m completely missing. But I’m watching it for the sheer joy of Ed, Ein, and Yoko Kanno’s amazing music.
