This April, Crunchyroll will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cowboy Bebop with a special home video release! The neo-noir space western will receive a limited edition Blu-ray box set on April 4, 2023 just in time for the 25th anniversary of the show, which debuted on April 3, 1998! Each set will exclusively include a special metallic collector’s box, several art cards, and a never-before-seen 25th anniversary retrospective video that will be new to the special features.
Cowboy Bebop – The Complete Series 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set
The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motley lot of intergalactic loners teams up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot Jet is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh Corgi named Ein.
