"Brain Scratch" is the only episode that does not end with an intertitle. See more »
On Session 12: Jupiter Jazz, Part One (and in the recap scenes on Part 2): The infamous shower scene where Faye finds out that Gren has the breasts of a woman, yet he's still a man was edited to conceal Gren's breasts and any hint of it (i.e., his cleavage) using cropping and shots of Gren's face. Also: a second-long shot of Gren's butt crack during the pan up his back was cut. See more »
"One ship, one crew, one destiny" indeed. If you had to sum anime up into two words, it would undoubtably be "Cowboy Bebop." It's a 26 episode series that redefines what animation is and what it can do. The character developement is beyond comparison and the voice acting is unforgettable. If you see only one anime in your life, make it this one. I can't sum it up and give it the credit it deserves, but what I can say, is that it is the most compelling story to be turned into an anime that will have you laughing, and the more sensitive may even cry, but you will get goosebumps. All I can say is, don't forget to watch this before you die, it is worth it and then some.
