Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 Japanese anime series developed by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno. The twenty-six episodes of the series are set in the year 2071, and follow the adventures of a bounty hunter crew traveling on the Bebop. Cowboy Bebop explores philosophical concepts including existentialism, existential ennui, and loneliness. The series premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo's 18:00 timeslot from April 3 until June 26, 1998, broadcasting only twelve episodes and a special due to its controversial adult-themed content. ... more on Wikipedia
