Cowboy Bebop

I've started watching the full series of Cowboy Bebop. I've watched a few episodes in the past, but not in a regular fashion. I started watching because I wanted something in Japanese so I could do some more listening to spoken Japanese outside the context of trains and bars.

So far it is really good. The animation is great, and the music is fantastic. The stories are pretty good, but so far there hasn't been much of an overall story, although reliable sources have stated that there is one. I'm only up to episode 5 out of 26 so it probably hasn't had time to develop and become clear yet.

Anyway, I'm going to keep going through listening to the Japanese audio. Later on I may try the English audio, as I have noticed a few times when the English words don't exactly match up with the English audio.

I have to say, it is by far my favourite TV series across all the genres. It's a bit Buffyesque in that a lot of the later episodes have a strange variety of themes (I mean, you get teen angsty themes, love themes, action episodes, in that strange mix which seems to be Buffy), but towards the end the strength of the characterisation just absolutely blows me away. Oh, and the music is great. And Faye is so hot :P
