Bitches literally ain't worth it.
This made me giggle and I'm significantly less sad now. I love you guys, /a/ is best board <³
qwhy was spike such a cuck for julia, a dumb broad who sucked off vicious?
Right? Everyone knows Spike/Fae is pure nonsense.
I think you're missing the point of the genre.
In spaghetti westerns the good guy doesn't get to have the happy ending.
Noir is much the same.
You realize how many movies have the good guy saving the day and just riding off into the sunset, dying, or my personal favorite. Just starting a new day as if nothing happened.
Revy from Black Lagoon is the only one that comes in mind.
I don't know what you're even getting at. Both are shows that everyone already knows almost everything about that anons get constantly assblasted about having spoiled for them.
Revy is fine but leans more towards the asshole/immoral side rather than amorality and just not caring.
What "code" does Spike have? He's a decent guy and isn't an asshole unnecessarily but that's pretty much it
>have no mother
>dad a drunk lazy fuck that keeps beating and scolding her all the time
>gets arrested for no reason
>kills her own father
>flees to a random Southeast Asian shithole criminal town full of prostitutes, robbers, smugglers, mafiosi and drug traffickers
>be a prostitute for some time
>completely loose your shit and become a mercenary that has pleasure in killing
Well, what did you expect from her?
I don't know, maybe not being an all out asshole is his code. He loves his woolongs but I seem to recall him not selling out that old chess master. It seemed like he has some moral code at least.
I know. That's why following a single specific one is so stupid. That's why it's "open ended death" because that itself is a huge trope.
The "He's Dead Jim" is as likely to come after as "Not Quite Dead" or "Never Found the Body"
If we're going by alignments Spike is pretty much the best example of the chaotic neutral archetype, he does what he feels like doing all the time without putting much thought into it. "Whatever happens, happens" was a good way to put it, he goes with the flow and does what he wants
And since he's a pretty chill guy in terms of personality, he doesn't do many evil things.
That's how I interpret his character at least
Why is Faye so perfect?
>m-muh pure waifu
Even if she wasn't 'canonically' raped, she was still a sex worker that dove into some pretty kinky shit before going full on mercenary, and admitted to munching rugs left and right in prison. Honestly, she'd be a lot less dirty if she'd only been raped, but as it currently stands she's done all kinds of fucking.
>Spike is pretty much the best example of the chaotic neutral archetype
I agree with you that he is chaotic neutral, but BEST example? nah, not even close. Conan the Barbarian is chaotic neutral INCARNATE.
Consider how obviously Spike and the rest of the crew derives from his cast, Spike is basically Yakuza film Lupin, although given that he's much older, Lupin has ranged from far more extreme, violent and psychopathic than Spike to more benign and friendly.
One of the best, then. What I meant to say is that he fits the archetype perfectly, so much that he could be taken as an example to illustrate it.
Truly CN protagonists are pretty rare too
>being this much of an idiot
All that shit happened in the manga, dumbass. The anime actually cut out the stuff about her being a prostitute/dominatrix, so it kinda sounds to me like you're the animefag here.
>misunderstanding Schrodinger's experiment
>The plot is about two cowboys, Spike (who dies) and Jet, who drive cattle across the stars, while playing their own blend of bebop music. The story is mainly concerned with the events leading up to the death of Spike, the main character, who dies at the end of the show.
Jet does not die in the show, and neither does Faye or Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV, or even Ein their dog, but Spike might have.
The TV series ends when Spike, the main character, is killed. The last scene is of him dying. No one knows what happens to his friends, who are still alive, and who did not die, like he did.
A Cowboy Bebop movie was made, however, Spike does not die here. This is because the movie takes place a few episodes before the final episode. If it took place after the final episode, it wouldn't make much sense, because then Spike would have been dead.
The point of it was to show the absurdity in qm
