#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Series Online Free – Mankind has colonised the stars, yet humanity remains the same desperate and power-hungry species in 2071. A ragtag duo of spacefaring bounty-hunters, Spike Spiegel and Jet Black, struggle to make ends meet living amongst the stars; and things are about to get a hell of a lot more complicated when they adopt the super-dog Ein, persuade the seductive femme-fatale known as Faye Valentine, and the teenage-hacker Edward. These five figures are about to come across things crazier than the crew of the Bebop itself. Plot: In 2071, roughly fifty years after an accident with a hyperspace gateway made the Earth almost uninhabitable, humanity has colonized most of the rocky planets and moons of the Solar System. Amid a rising crime rate, the Inter Solar System Police (ISSP) set up a legalized contract system, in which registered bounty hunters (also referred to as “Cowboys”) chase criminals and bring them in alive in return for a reward.

A Story Worth Watching
CB is a happy blend of story, action, and characters.
Set in the future, CB takes its name from the spaceship, around which the story loosely revolves. The main characters, Spike and Jet, try to make their living while not getting killed, traveling around looking for bounties.
Technically, the animation is very good, though a friend pointed out that sometimes the frame rate is low, or they use a still in a shot. These didn’t bother me because they were used tastefully, and were balanced by action shots that carried a lot of energy.
The voice acting for the english version is great, and adds to character depth. They seem to understand who the characters are and how they would react.
The story line is interesting. With each episode being around 25 minutes, the time is filled with a balanced blend of action, character development, and plot. The story within an episode develops rapidly, while the whole series moves more slowly, with the exception of the last few episodes (where they were trying to wrap things up).
If you’ve never tried any anime, this would be my first choice. I watched it on DVD, and would definitely watch it again.
A cross cultural/cross genre touchstone that serves as the gold standard
In the future of 2071, mankind has established colonies throughout the solar system and left Earth behind. In this future, bounty hunters known colloquially as “Cowboys” travel the galaxy looking to collect prices on the heads of any number of terrorists and criminals. The show follows the crew of the spaceship Bebop owned by a former cop, Jet Black, whose past has left him a mixture of man and machine with cybernetic limbs and prosthetics, former syndicate enforcer, Spike Spiegel, who is haunted by his past and the woman he left to it, opportunistic con artist, Faye Valentine, a woman who carries a seemingly insurmountable debt but with no memories of her past life before being revived cryogenically, and Ed (aka Radical Edward) a young overly exuberant hacker who’s equal parts technologically brilliant and eccentric as the group work as “Cowboys” to try in vain to keep their heads and ship above water.
Created by Studio Sunrise and spearheaded by director Shinichiro Watanabe of Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory and Macross Plus. Initially planned by Sunrise’s frequent collaborator as a selling point for Spacecraft toys similar to the model kits that shared a symbiotic relationship with the Gundam series, early on Bandai’s toy division pulled support after deciding the series wasn’t going to sell merchandise leaving the series in danger of cancelation before Bandai’s sister company, Bandai Visual stepped in to save the project. The show became majorly successful, and is well known for being the first anime to be shown on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block in 2001 where even in spite of episodes being pulled due to the then recent events of 9/11, the show managed to get a major foothold in the United States to the point Adult Swim to repeatedly broadcast the show for four years afterwards. Cowboy Bebop has gone on to become a pop cultural touchstone for not only anime, but genre defying projects that don’t fit neatly into one box with Cowboy Bebop’s soundtrack choices and mixture of genres that run the gamut of homages everything from Spaghetti Westerns and Hong Kong Heroic Bloodshed to Film Noirs and even at one point Ridley Scott’s Alien. Cowboy Bebop is a show that oozes not only style but the substance to back it up.
The show at its core is a series of standalone adventures that could theoretically be viewed independently of one another(with series director Shinichiro Watanabe saying himself he approached each episode as if it were a mini-movie) but with the linking of the crew of the Bebop serving as our through line for the series with character growth and gradual reveal of hidden depths of our characters that reveals the both the psychological and physical scars these characters carry and what events lead them to this point. The running theme throughout the show is one being haunted by the past with Jet, Spike, and Faye carrying a weight of sadness behind their facades that the situation allows to seep out. The only one not haunted by their past is Ed who’s very much “in the moment” and who despite being a brilliant hacker is prone to exercises in confusing silliness that are endearing and make a good counterpoint to the rest of the Bebop crew’s often apathetic and cynical outlooks. The theme of being haunted by the past is carried through in many of the individual episodes with many characters often dealing with fallout from past actions/wrongs or motivated by some personal trauma or loss and the show will often allow these episodic stories to tie back to the Bebop’s characters. Despite this though, the show never becomes overbearingly dour as the show mixes in elements of comedy both broad and/or dark and allows for a lot of humanity to come through in character exchanges even in the most seemingly minor points. The show also knows how to incorporate a healthy dose of action and excitement into the mix with some beautifully animated fist fights, gun fights, or spaceship based dog fights serving as engaging set pieces throughout the show’s run. The show augments these moments with its eclectic soundtrack provided by series composer Yoko Kanno, and the music in Cowboy Bebop is such an integral part of the show’s identity and why it works that Watanabe himself has said he’d often use Kanno’s score as inspiration for entire scenes and set pieces, and that’s clearly apparent at several points throughout the show.
Cowboy Bebop is not just one of the greatest anime shows of all time, but also one of the best show’s period. With its engaging characters going through well-constructed individual self-contained stories while allowing for growth and character exploration, and beautiful animation that leads to engaging action backed by an immersive and eclectic soundtrack, Cowboy Bebop has become a pop culture touchstone for a very good reason.
