When I first started watching anime the first show I watched was Dragonball Z. But it was Cowboy Bebop that really had me hooked.
The show is set in 2071 and chronicles bounty hunters on board a spaceship, named Bebop, on their travels for bounties.
Most episodes are about the bounties but slowly shows the back story of all the characters with all of their stories coming to reaching a fulfilling end.
I find the voice acting in the English dub great and well done and that they fit the characters wonderfully.
The writing for the show is great in giving all the characters a sense of depth and having a story line feel rewarding in the end.
Art work is is also great, showing wonderful detailed solar system that feels alive and action scenes are fluid.
And the music for the show is strangely perfect with a mix of jazz, blues, rock, electronic and other genres that fits brilliantly to every situation.
Overall Bebop is a near perfect anime that I can, and have, watch over and over and still enjoy it every time.
