2 Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director ShinichirĊ Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

Cowboy Bebop is so good! Even though it's the only anime I've ever watched, I can see why it's so popular. I think I might become one of those otaku's now because of it!
