Cowboy Bebop is a special show to me; it's the type of show that never gets old, no matter what episode, arc, or moment, which is really a remarkable concept. Cowboy Bebop has been an Adult Swim mainstay for almost a decade now, and I've been watching it for about half of that, which is no small feat for a 26 episode series. Anyways, after extensive soul searching, I think I've isolated what makes Cowboy Bebop so magical in my brain, along with the brains of others, as we've clearly been watching it for a decade now.
It was snowing, and Faye was in the bar, at least I was close....
I don't know why I thought of this.
Now for the real answer, Cowboy Bebop keeps me coming back because of a little bit of all these things; there are episodes of Bebop I'm frantic to watch at times, because I love the plot so much, and these stand-outs blur my memories of other episodes, making those fun to watch too! Also the soundtrack paces the show perfectly, making so many memorable moments that I just want to see again, and the show's stylistic decisions suited a younger, more western oriented me perfectly. Perhaps that's the real reason why I adore Bebop, as the show really got an older me hooked on serious anime. Before I saw Bebop, I read what I've seen in Jump, and watched what I've seen on Adult Swim and Toonami, and that was it. Until I saw Cowboy Bebop, and then I wanted to know what others thought, then I saw recommendations, and now I'm a glorified otaku. Thanks Spike.
And until next time.....
