I’ve loved Cowboy Bebop for years. Watched the series when Adult Swim began running it on Cartoon Network, and I eagerly caught the movie in the theater when it was released. If you’ve never seen the movie or the series, or just don’t like anime, you should take the time to check out Bebop. It’s a just awesome space opera with wild west American sensibilities filtered through a Japanese perspective and projected onto a late twenty-first century world of space travel and commerce within the solar system.
I caught Cowboy Bebop – The Movie again last night on DVD and remembered all over again just how great that entire world is. As a bonus, given the nanotech-centricity of this blog a lot of the time, biological nanotechnology plays a major part in the plot of the movie. Do check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
And don’t forget about the series — here’s a link to a box set of Cowboy Bebop Remix Complete Collection at Amazon for $35.49 (at the time of this post) that includes all 26 episodes on six discs, an absolute steal.
