Probably my favorite series, I rewatch it every few years.

Still waiting for Ed & Ein spinoff tho
>>
>>134901318
I think it is one of the best TV anime ever made, and I saw it well after I got into watching anime. I was blown away. An amazing confluence of talent had to happen from directing to animation to music, I'm amazed the show got made with such a large budget.

I can't see a spin off getting made today, and if it did I don't think it would do justice to the original and movie

Pretty sure this will still be the most popular choice on this board for the best anime ever. Not that it matters because it basically had zero impact on the industry. There's not much to talk about the show either.

No, I've watched since then and most of it is crap. To be fair, most of what came out in 1998 was crap as well. The difference being that there was still some good stuff being made before the Japanese recession really started to crunch on anime.

Nothing, if you don't like anime. If you like anime then you can find enjoyment in almost all shows even if they are objectively trash.

A reboot? How could they possibly make it better? Not saying CB is the greatest already, but what could be improved? Literally no good advancements have been made in anime since it first aired. If it were rebooted it would have ugly digital colors, CGI spaceships, and more corporate meddling.

No. Tired plot, lame villain. CB was best in its filler-ish episodes where they got the chance to play around with the characters and break narrative conventions. As soon as it returned to the main plot, with the Spike/Julia/Vicious love triangle, it became standard action fare again.

Best episodes: Toys in the Attick, Mushroom Samba and Pierrot le Fou. The movie is forgettable.

Rewatched the movie a couple of days ago, that art style and soundtrack are just so good and this scene:

>>134903914

I've been watching anime for twenty years and Bebop's still right up there at the top. Plenty of other shit is worth watching, but we're no longer in an environment that allows for stuff like Bebop. Stuff good in different ways, sure, but I think the industry's been headed down a certain road for a long time. Since someone else got accused of being from /co/, I'll put it in /co/ terms: before Marvel became the juggernaut it is today, it made Blade. Blade is fucking great and there hasn't been a superhero movie quite like it since (no, not even the sequels). There are still great superhero movies, but we're no longer in an environment where someone would make something like Blade. Similarly, we still get good anime every year or every other year, but we don't get anything as unique as Bebop anymore.

in conclusion, Mushroom Samba provides delights years after I watch it
>>
Its a good anime with a more western setting. Combined with a decent dub, its not a surprise that its a really popular entry-level anime.
Solid 9/10 show.
>>
>>134901318
Well of course I do.

Even the "bad" episodes are good by normal standards, and the good episodes, are superlative.

They are fucking poetry.
>>
>>134909786
You're an idiot, then.
>>
>>134901318
It's easily my favorite anime (or close to it) but I wouldn't say that it's the best anime ever
>>
>>134914360
That entire analogy is lost on me because I have no idea what Blade is, but the idea that we can't have "unique" anime anymore seems stupid. We had Yuri Kuma earlier this year, which is pretty unique. We've had several Watanabe shows in the last few years, and while the writing has been spotty, his direction and tone hasn't fallen apart or anything. No, we aren't likely to get much space noir, because the non-mecha space genre has largely died, but claiming Bebop was unique in some way that nothing today can be is a big claim.
>>
>>134915251

Fair enough. I'll grant it could be Bebop just made that big of an impact on me when I watched it--I'd been watching stuff since channel 58 showed Japanimation at midnight on Fridays, but I'd never seen anything like Bebop, and it was right as I started buying my own anime and following more and more anime/manga.

But stuff...blurs together to me now. Moe seems to be everywhere, everything's based on a light novel or VN, etc...it could just be me being a nostalgiafag, thinking we can't make stuff like Bebop anymore.

>Yuri Kuma

...that is the weirdest series premise I've seen in a long time. Is it any good?

I would think an actual sequel could be done. Either which includes both Faye and Jet having more bounty adventures, or focusing on completely new characters.
I can imagine a guy/girl who wants to be a bounty hunter just like the legendary Spike Spiegel. They get a ship and he/she trys to recruit people for a bounty hunter team. Maybe that person finds a grown up Ed and manages to get her to come with them. Though Jet and Faye would be too old at this point to tag along.

I'll settle for aged-up Ed with normal bazoombas. We don't need Mega Milk. Just a grinning tomboy wearing clothes so small they belong on her younger self.
