Why do Americans love this style over substance series? Almost every episode outside of the Vicious storyline offered no interesting information to be processed. It felt like a Saturday morning cartoon for noir fags.
Not to mention Faye Valentine is one of the ugliest female designs of all time.
Opinions, opinions. "Style over substance" is an unsupported claim, I sure as hell wouldn't agree. The show was largely episodic, so it makes sense that outside of certain storylines the episodes would be self-contained. I thought every episode was interesting, too. Also, Faye is smokin'
As always, OP is a faggot.
OP i tell you how to use this site for pepole like you if you see the x on the right corner click on it and wait
It was entertaining but I agree that children with no experience of anything love it so much when its not all that
The only episode that really got to was Faye's episode where she finds the time capsule. All my close friends from childhood and family are dead so the 'left behind' storylines in fiction really get to me
OP the first thing i learned here dont post too negativ post on the animes/manga that is on /a/-s recommendation list
Style over substance is always massively popular. Just look at shit like Boku Dake, Keyshit, or TTGL.
I think Cowboy Bebop has plenty of substance though.
Whether style in itself can be substance is a better question.

>Not to mention Haruhi Suzumiya is one of the ugliest female designs of all time.
I think style can equal substance if there's consistency and/or thematic relevance to the chosen style. Shows like Bebop and Evangelion nail this.
If you just throw a bunch of unconnected shit in because it looks cool, then you're going to wind up with an incoherent mess.
>"Evangelion is my favorite"
Fuck off, Bebop is pretty based
The only shit episodes (which actually had no significance) were Jupiter Jazz Part 2 and Boogie Woogie Feng Shui
Though I agree it is pretty episodic and definitely not something to be binge watched
I don't understand what the fuss over it is either. Felt boring, plots had no depth to them, character development was non-existant, basically it was just flashy.
There's flashier and better looking shows out there if that's what you're after.
I'm talking about Part 2, Part 1 was pretty chill
Literally nothing happens in Part 2
We have Gren's homolust towards Vicious and Vicious outsmarting the fag anyway
Then cue shitty death related forced drama
The dogfight that takes place before is fucking sloppy as hell
Heck, the ending scene is the same as Jupiter Jazz Part 1 opening scene
The only good thing about this ep was that they used one of the best OSTs in the credits
>That episode with the sea rats or whatever the hell they were called was worst.
You mean Gateway Shuffle?
Nah, it was good cause there's a shootout in the beginning and one of the series best dogfights takes place in the later half of this episode
Plus the ending was nice (The eco-terrorists dying an ironic "death" by the very virus they created; in actual they turned into monkeys)
>And the one with the Chinese chick.
Yeah, that's Boogie Woogie Feng Shui
>Felt boring, plots had no depth to them
Episodic series are mostly like that. Since plots are self contained per episodes, they may feel shallow
>character development was non-existant
nigger did you even watch the show?
>There's flashier and better looking shows out there if that's what you're after.
First of all
As good as Batman: TAS was, please keep your suggestions /a/ related. Futhermore, it also had its decent share of crap episodes
Secondly, Pierrot Le Fou was pretty much a tribute to shows like that
Cowboy Bebop is pretty much in the same vein
Americans audiences cannot tolerate anything that deviates from their shit culture.
I can't think of an anime with strong indivdual episodes though so that's why I used Batman as an example
BTAS was far more consistent anyways and reached far bigger heights than Bebop
The Two-Face 2 parter alone is better than anything from Cowboy Bebop
Pretty much. If CB aired today current retarded anime crowd of newfags would probably hate it due to "not enough plot". Really shame that due to CR IQ and attention span of anime watchers plummeted.
Everybody told me that cowboy bebop was the greatest anime ever. So I gave it a try. After 6 episodes, I dropped it, because there was
Nothing great about it. Like the op
Said, it's a Saturday morning cartoon, that the muricans overhyped.
Cowboy Bebop is an old school episodic sci-fi adventure show like Captain Harlock or Galaxy Express 999, there is a main plot that the show reminds you of every so often but the episodic little adventures are the Meat and Potatos of the show.
