They are concerned about the present lack of any bounty heads to chase, meaning no money and no food. Alternate Versions. On the Bebop, something is crawling around the ship, unbeknownst to the crew. Cowboy Bebop is different from many other anime series in that it is mostly episodic featuring many stand-alone episodes without long story arcs.
I magine a dystopian far-future where a faceless megacorp harvests and replicates everything in its path, until every frazzled citizen drowns in content. This week, the streaming behemoth announced plans for a live-action remake of Cowboy Bebop , the eccentric sci-fi anime series about sarcastic bounty hunters scratching a living on the fringes of society. The remake reveal is presumably intended as a 20th anniversary present to long-standing acolytes around the globe, but is it a gift they really want? Cowboy Bebop might seem like an absurd title, but it is pretty accurate: the show is a jazzy, freeform tale of life on the cosmic frontier. It is set in the cluttered, but recognisable future of where humanity has fled from a shattered Earth and dispersed across the local solar system. There are sci-fi staples — stargates and cyborg arms — this is no Star Trek post-scarcity society where a replicator will fulfil your every desire. This is still a universe of cup noodles, battered packs of cigarettes and scuzzy petrol stations where you fill up your spaceship, a sci-fi milieu of relatable shabbiness beautifully rendered in the kinetic, exaggerated style of Japanese animation.
