happy anniversary to cowboy bebop

20 years ago Cowboy Bebop premiered in Japan, April 3, 1998. I can’t believe this masterpiece is 20 years old, what’s more unbelievable is how well its held up and how appealing it is to new comers. All of the elements in this show were on point and hit the bulls-eye. From the hugely appealing characters, to the wonderful action sequence, coupled with the fantastic music, everything about this show is awesome.
My personal favorite aspect is all the pop culture references (movies, songs, videogames…), which makes rewatching this series a treat.

 

Space Lion is one of my favorite tracks from the series

See you space cowboy
