    Not what I thought it would be...I was really impressed by the action scenes like the sky chase and the jeet-kune-do fighting, but overall it was really a letdown. I thought the story was especially weak.

    It's a two-hour long episode. It's not great, but it's a lot better than some anime-based movies. *cough* G-Savoir *cough*

    Consider this too, the movie increases the run time of the entire series by 15%. If you're a Bebop fan, you should consider yourself lucky that there's a movie at all. :)

    i agree. the movie was more serious than most of the regular bebop episodes and the plot is ever james bond like. however, the action was great and its better than most anime movies

    It reminded me a whole lot of the episode with the eco-terrorists, it's like they rehashed that plot for the film.

    i was relatively disappointed with it, it was jsut a long episode

    that being said however the action scenes were great, as always, and it is more Cowboy Bebop so its very :cool: regardless

    Well the creator said he wanted to basicly make a long episode and to flesh out the actions scenes. In that reguard I think the movie is great.

    Well, in an interview he said, If it isn't broken then dont fix it or something to that effect. I don't know, I really enjoyed the movie.

    In this case, it made for an excellent movie.

    well they cant really do much else. Spike pretty much died at the end of it, and if they do something like going back and doing a movie about his mob past, it wouldnt really be Cowboy Bebop.

    I wish they would make another one :hs:

    On the contrary, Spike didn't die. Wantabe is on record in an interview saying that Spike will be on TV again, although the series won't be a true sequel to Bebop.

    All you really see happen is Spike falls over. He's really no more injured at the end of that fight then he is at the end of BoFA. Don't really see any reason to believe he's deceased.

    yeah I know he didnt actually fall over and get confirmed dead or anything, but they pretty much ended the series didnt they? they had Ed and Ein leave, and if I can remeber Faye left (or did she? cant remember too tired :o)


    anyways, if they do make a new CB I hope they keep most of it the same, or atleast the same animators/voices.
