Reviews - What do customers think about Cowboy Bebop # 1?

review  Feb 29, 2008
This is a great anime series and this manga is really great! The pictures in it looks almost just like the real characters in the show. That's more then what i can say for a lot of manga's. If you are looking to buy a anime manga and like this show, you will most really enjoy this!
Not very impressive  May 15, 2006
Cowboy Bebop is apparently something of an anime/manga classic. One of the things to understand about manga is that these books lead double- and triple-lives that you're probably not aware of, as video games and/or animated television shows (anime). Lately, some manga has been introduced to the Japanese market simultaneously with the corresponding video game and animated television series, and many more established manga - like Cowboy Bebop - were enormously popular as anime at the same time they were being published as manga. (Although I think this volume came just after the TV series ended.)

Four bounty hunters hop around a futuristic universe on a ship called the Bebop tracking big-ticket criminals. The action is clean and well-drawn, but the stories are often sillier than I'd like. I had also heard rumblings that my favorite TV show, Firefly, was a transparent rip-off of Cowboy Bebop, but beyond the fact that they travel on a space ship and have a cutesy genius mechanic, I don't see it. Then again, I've only read volume one of this series, and there are many, many more books and videos out there.
3,2,1, lets jam!  Dec 3, 2004
Great! while there is a lack of action scenes, and the couple don't last long, it's still a good read. The personality of each character is displayed well, which must be hard with these characters.

Overall it's a must get, wether you've seen the bebop or not you can get right into it and begin. see you space cowboy...
A day in the life of a Bounty Hunter  Aug 13, 2004
I won't write too much, but I thought the Cowboy Bebop books were very nicely drawn and had interesting storylines. Unlike the series, which mainly focuses on Spike's feelings for Julia and Vicious' anger, the books add on to the ordinary but crazy days the bebop crew has trying to track down odd bounties.

I find these books very special - it shows the whole bebop crew together and expands upon their adventures, showing us that they were around together longer than the episodes made it seem. I love the series and I like the whole rivalry between Spike and Vcious as much as the next man, but I thought the series needed more time to show the whole group together like that. The books accomplish this, and I notice that they give you a different feel than most manga books.

I have yet to read the other mangas, but will eventually get them. Because futurisic stuff doesn't interest me as much as fantasy stuff, I gave this book a four, then I thought about it and changed it to a three when I figured "I only have volume one, who am I to give it a good score if I haven't experienced the entire manga collection? Maybe the other books will wow me more?"
Shadow of a Series  Jan 10, 2004
Perhaps it is from the high expectations roused by the fantastic "Cowboy Bebop" television series that leads this Manga to be somewhat of a disappointment.

Drawn in classic Manga style, there really is little to fault about the artwork. Leaving much to be desired, however, are the speech balloons, which rarely explicitly show who's saying what, leaving the reader to guess the speaker from the context of what's being said. Plotwise, these stories have as much potential as a typical episode of the television series, but fall short of achieving their rich fullness due to ambiguous leaps in action from panel to panel. Even after re-reading a section of the graphic novel, there are places that just don't seem to make sense, and that ring of faulty placement and/or translation from the original Japanese.

The trademark dark humour, on the other hand, is markedly present. Even if the four stories contained herein aren't exactly true-to-life or entirely comprehensible, the fun of reading along isn't entirely diminished.
