Cowboy Bebop Wallpaper

Cowboy Bebop is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, later translated to a motion picture and manga series. It follows the adventures of a group of bounty hunters travelling on a spaceship, the Bebop, tryin to apprehend bounties

Most episodes revolve around a bounty; however the overall focus of the show concerns the dark past of each character which unravel and connect as the series progresses.

The primary storyline focuses on Spike Spiegel, a former member of the Red Dragon crime syndicate who is haunted by a past love triangle between his former syndicate partner, Vicious, and a mysterious woman named Julia.

A secondary storyline revolves around Faye Valentine, an amnesiac indebted gambler awakened from cryogenic slumber, whose past is a mystery even to herself.

The series is strongly influenced by American culture, especially the jazz movements of the 1940s, '50s and '60s. Nearly all of its action sequences, from space battles to hand-to-hand martial arts combat, are set and timed to music. Music is a driving force within the series. Episodes are called Sessions (in reference to musicians playing a "jam session"), and titles are either borrowed from an album's or a song's name, or make use of a genre name, that will influence the whole episode's action and musical theme.
