Cowboy Bebop is a successful and influential anime, following the adventures of a group of bounty hunters in space. There are 26 episodes.

Cowboy Bebop revolves around a crew of bounty hunters living in the spaceship named Bebop. They are a team of bounty hunters who travel the Solar System trying to apprehend fugitives for bounties. Jet Black, the ship's captain and owner, partnered with Spike Spiegel for his diverse combat skills. During their travels, the Bebop gains new crew members: Faye Valentine, a woman with a mysterious past; Edward, an eccentric girl who also happens to be a cyber hacking genius; and Ein, a genetically altered dog with human level intelligence.

Throughout the series, Bebop crew members' pasts catch up with them, and the show regularly uses flashbacks to illustrate the history of the main characters. Spike's past as a syndicate enforcer is a major element of the series, while other episodes deal with Jet's previous occupation as an ISSP officer on Ganymede, and Faye's mysterious origins and significant debt problems. The day-to-day life of the crew is also explored throughout the series.[1]
