"One of the most popular anime series ever has inspired one of the hottest manga in America! Cowboy Bebop blends science fiction, spaghetti western, film noir, and jazz music into a new genre that's all about style.
In the twilight of the 21st century humanity left the ruins of Earth to find opportunity in the farthest reaches of the Solar System. Following the wave of expansion was an outbreak of crime. Syndicates, con men, and crooks thrived when Earthly law and order couldn't keep up. Enter the 'Cowboys,' bounty hunters of the new frontier. With thousands of wanted men on the loose, there are millions of woolongs to be won if you can catch the right prey.
Spike Spiegel and Jet Black are a pair of bounty hunters who could have been the best - if it weren't for their bad luck and their nagging good consciences. With their unwanted partner/rival, Faye Valentine, and the hacker wunderkind, d, this motley crew has been through some of the craziest adventures this side of Ganymede." from tokyopop.com
