Crest of the Stars

Crest of the Stars

In the distant future, mankind has mastered space and spread empires across the galaxy. While many choose to colonize distant planets, others choose to remain amidst the stars, ultimately giving rise to a new brand of humanity known as the Abh. Both genetically and culturally different from their Earth-dwelling peers, the Abh soon find themselves engaged in a bloody war that rages across hundreds of planets and set out to restore peace by means of conquest. Enter Jinto, a nobleman and ambassador of the recently acquired Hyde system whose duty is to represent his peoples' interests and rule on the Abh's behalf. In order to be officially coronated to this position, a cold-but-beautiful Abh princess named Lafiel arrives at Hyde to escort him back to the empire's capital. When they are suddenly attacked by an anti-Abh liberation front, however, the festivities are cut short, and the two must flee for their lives against all odds.

Both series are set in well-developed space. While Crest of Stars is more epic in scope (like Star Wars) BeBop focuses more on the characters. You should like them if you like realistic space flight (to some degree) and appreciate a good storyline.

KittyEmperor

Both series is set in space and follow around a small group of people.  In Crest of the Stars it's mainly about a boy and a girl and in Cowboy Bebop it's about a small crew of 2 men and 2 girls.  Both series have some pretty good space battles but the main point of each is story that revolves around the main characters.  While Cowboy Bebop is more of a bounty hunter type of thing it does weave in a backstory for the characters that makes the characters interesting and then in Crest of the Stars it's politics of things one of the major driving forces of the the story but the characters backgrounds adds to the depth of the characters.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

You really feel for all character's involved that are starving, and will eat anything. Even if that includes canned dog food.

Both animes involve characters who have joined their party with their own agenda. They take up long journeys that test all of their limits.

Cowboy Bebop and Ergo Proxy both share an absorbing plot. The artwork, characters and thier interactions are well designed. If you liked the development of Bebop's crew you'll likely be into Ergo Proxy too.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Each series contains gunplay, comradery, and nonstop action. Regardless of what kind of music is your style, both Cowboy Bebop and FLCL have an excellent soundtrack.

These two shows may not seem like they would possibly ever be recomended for each other.... but the fact that these shows share a heavy Jaz influence will make any Jaz fan a fan of these shows as well.
Wickerman

Being a majior Anime OST fan Ishii Yasushi gives exalent soundtracks, he has worked with Yoko Kanna on Darker Then Black.  Bouth are comedies in a scensible way when they choose to be but mostly down right serious.  Hellsing can be a bit to gory for my liking and deals in black magic unlike Cowboy Bebop in anny way but you obtain that relaxed feeling that you do from Ciwboy Bebop, unfortunetly Hellsing only has 13 episodes so not alot of time to deal in daily lifes of the charecters but for that time you do get enjoying the charecters it is well worth it.

Cowboy Bebop really reminds me of Hyper Police though I think Cowboy Bebop is abit more serious and grown up than Hyper police. we got the same bonty hunter theme but it's a cat girl as the main char ;p

If you like shows about bounty hunters, this is the king! Watch this and be impressed.
