I just finished watching Cowboy Bebop and now I am sad as I know that the show will never be brought back, this is now my favourite anime series of all time. I want to know what happened to the rest of the crew like Ed, Ein, Faye, Jet and even Spike but since the show ends with 26 episodes and a movie I am up for interpretations and fan theories.
the star going out either means spike is dead or his life as a warrior is over, he is hypothetically next in line for leading the red dragon clan so there is that possibility, he could also just give them the middle finger and return to his honorless life as bounty hunter, not a warrior (for me that implies some honor, maybe that is a strethc)
jet will probably just dick around the universe for the rest of his life
same for faye unless spike survives, at which point a romantic relationship could happen whether spike decides to run a mob or return to bounty hunting
ed and ein are having wacky adventures with her dad for at least a little while, but that is pretty obvious
also my favorite anime btw
Even though beepbop ended with very little chance for a sequel the universe itself still exists in all it's glory so we might see a spin off series some time down the line.
At least i hope so ;_;
Ed went to chase her dad around with Ein (She probably would end up more or less back doing what she was before they found her)
Faye and Jet were the only ones left on the Bebop
Doubtful Faye would hang around with Jet for long before leaving to do her own thing.
Jet is left all alone to drift around in the Bebop possibly continuing bounty hunting on his own.
Are you looking for someone to ease your mind OP?
I think we'll see a sequel to Bebop down the road. Staff members saying it will never happen doesn't mean shit.
(See George Lucas on Episode VII)
I'm not sure I'd want to see it happen. The art style would never recapture what they created in '98 and there would tons of CG on the ships. And what if it really was a sequel that took place after Spike died. Would you really want to watch Bebop 2 starring someone besides Spike? Or with Jet or Faye as the lead?
I think "You're gonna carry that weight" meant you're going to carry the weight of your past. The way Spike did. As he mentioned his real eye or the cybernetic one, I don't remember, one of his eyes saw the past. His search for Julia and showdown with Vicious was his past catching up with him.
I'd watch a show about an older Ed and Ein's more mature adventures but I don't know how they'd make just hacking interesting. They would probably just need to have her meet some new characters who can shoot shit or have her use robots/drones to fight. Anyway since the split of the main cast before Spike's possible death a series about Ed could have his fate remain ambiguous.
I usually disregard Bebop threads but I'm really in the mood for this show right now. I think I'll wait another couple years but I'm getting close to time to watch it again. It's easy to forget because it's so entry level but Bebop will always be one of my favorites.
i'll take the bait
6 eps are literally two parters
almost every other episode has continuity details that build on previous episodes (picking up ein, ed, faye dipping in and out, developments of backstories besides spike's etc.)
Bebop and Adult Swim created an entire generation of anime fans. It taught us that there's more to anime than shounen and shoujo.
I guess I'm pretty lucky in that I never feel the need to see more of my favorite series (be it anime, manga, games or whatever) as long as they had satisfying development and conclusion. I'll always hold Cowboy Bebop dear and rewatch it from time to time, but I don't mind if there will never be new content.
It should stay that way.
Bebop was something special. More isn't always better.
i know this is feeding but this anon raises a good point each episode has its own plot so about 24 plots in total (20 1 episode plots, 3 2 part episode plots, and the overall plot) i mean since plot is so important how can you even stand to watch non-episodic shows anon
Bebop had perfect ending, I wouldn't want it to continue, it would just ruin the overall feeing.
The best thing about the series was the bluesy atmosphere, largely influenced by the god-tier soundtrack.
Too bad there are so few series like that.
