Widely praised as one of the greatest anime series of all time, Shinichirō Watanabe’s Cowboy Bebop remains a charming, action-packed neo-noir space opera with timeless relevance.

Cowboy Bebop follows the lives of several bounty hunters aboard the spaceship Bebop in the year 2071 as they hunt down criminals in a moody but tight 26-episode series.
