As Cowboy Bebop has become this evergreen ambassador of anime, we decided to go back and re-watch the show now that is has gotten a beautiful Blu-ray box set. Every week we will share our memories and then re-evaluate these stories with 16 years of experience and distance. Which episodes are just as we remember, which have major flaws, and which have aged like a fine wine. At the same time, we will also look back on the music, cultural references, and holistic connections contained within each episode. Plus, we will judge if there in an appropriate amount of Ein.

Does Cowboy Bebop hold up as a classic or was its reputation all a dream? Let’s rewatch Cowboy Bebop together and find out!

Also if you guys stop hating Ciel and Saber I just might lift the curse on you all and let you all have the Tsukihime remake. But only if you start behaving.

While the plot has passed through the filler portion which turned out mostly to be a pleasant scenic route as opposed to a traumatizing detour there is still a little (but expected) downtime before the final battle with the mysterious 8th card. Hold on to your hats because past this point it is nothing but fighting. The last four episodes should be great. Until then it is time for the crew to eat, drink, and be melancholy!

That is usually “and be merry” but all three of our heroines are in a bit of a funk on the night before the battle.
