    Cowboy Bebop



    Yoko Kanno’s absolutely incredible, unique, and iconic soundtrack is probably the first thing that Cowboy Bebop should be recognized for. No other show has quite achieved the unique jazz and blues vibe as the original Cowboy Bebop, and no show probably ever will.

James Gunn’s brilliant color schemes, amazing blend of makeup and CGI, and the quirky, wonderful humor all influenced future MCU installments—opening up the path for future delights like Thor Ragnarok. Most importantly, Peter’s “Awesome Mix” ingeniously blurs the line between a diegetic and nondiegetic soundtrack and perfectly chosen classic pop…
