Cowboy Bebop was good! The best episodes were side stories and the finale was pretty meh but the show has some great aesthetics and the dub was v nice. I think it's aged pretty well.

@Aleums bebop was a masterpiece tbh

it literally transcends genres and, at the time, was mindblowingly groundbreaking in a variety of ways (which is why they weren't allowed to air the whole thing)

@killeveryhetero ooh, I wasn't aware of that. I should do some research on it


@Aleums when it originally aired in Japan, they would only air 12 episodes (and highly censored them)

the team hated this but went along with it, placing a message in the typical bebop ending credits font at the end of the last episode which iirc read "ONE DAY, YOU WILL SEE THE FULL WORK"

sure enough,

@Aleums in NA, adult swim also censored the show pretty hard, and several episodes didn't air until years late due to similarities to 9/11 and other various catastrophic events at the time of airing

@Aleums ah, found it. the actual quote was "THIS IS NOT THE END. YOU WILL SEE THE REAL WORK SOMEDAY."

this was placed at the end of an extra montage clipshow they were allowed to air as a pseudo-ending to the show after the heavily redacted 12-episode run concluded.

@killeveryhetero @Aleums the clip show is absolutely worth it just for the soundtrack alone
