If you are not familiar with Cowboy Bebop, then you should definitely become acquainted. The story was popularized in the late 1990s after Sunrise turned its original manga into a 26-episode anime. The sci-fi series follows a ex-con named Spike Spiegel who works as an intergalactic bounty hunter. The hero, who captains the spacecraft Bebop, works with his own vagabond crew as they undertake various mission across the galaxy. However, their free-wheeling business comes under fire when Spike’s past comes back to haunt him. The character’s former crime syndicate is tracking Spike down, and both parties are out for blood.
