This movie is crazysauce, that’s all I can say. Crazysauce poured over an amazing sci-fi spectacular with a generous dose of cheese and a side of over-the-top drama, and those with a healthy sense of the ridiculous will eat it up with glee. If you are not a fan of campy fun, it may not be your cuppa.

On the morning of their break-up Kady and Ezra are thrown together on an escape for their lives as their mining planet is torn apart by a company vying for its natural resources. As refugees they are separated onto two different ships and communication is breaking down between the crews. Kady is a skilled hacker and begins sifting through classified information to find some hard truths. There is so much I want to say about this story but can't because half the joy of reading it is in the mysteries revealed and conspiracies discovered.

Originally airing in 1998-1999, Cowboy Bebop is widely regarded as an essential part of anime canon, with very good reason. The story of a group of down-on-their-luck bounty hunters in a gritty version of the future is a mixture of hilarity and tragedy, and worth a watch from almost anyone.
