Cowboy Bebop consists of 26 episodes of 20 minutes each. In general, you can enjoy each of their ‘sessions’ on its own, as it has an anthology-like feel to it. However, there are some whose story spans two chapters.
Since its premiere in 1998, Shinichiro Watanabe’s work has been very well received due to the dynamics of the team, the theme of its episodes and its music. In addition, she was very celebrated for achieving a very good mix of different genres in her episodes.
