Cowboy Bebop and Failure

Cowboy Bebop is rightfully considered one of the greatest animé series of all time, and much of that is due to its flawed characters. ​“Bebops success goes beyond tossing some scrappy folks in a ship and watching them struggle. The show depicts them as broken people who don’t know how to function together; sometimes that ineptitude is played for laughs but the undercurrent of failure at the core of the show also results in more revealing moments.”
