Cool movie about soldiers and stuff. It's got some good action, and it makes you think, like Cowboy Bebop did, occasionally.

Samurai X embodies the darker side of Cowboy Bebop, retaining that sense of sheer style, though in an admittedly much different setting. If you like your samurai anime dark, violent, and stylish, this OVA works great.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!

If you like Ed, imagine the golden goodness of 24 episodes of Ed, only she's trying to eat the dog. Bebop's lighter moments are amplfied to an mind puree-ing level in Excel. While Bebop has a discernable plot, Excel has insanity and excessive amounts of blood- and its not even horrifying, its hilarious. Now about the Pucuus....

Last Exile

We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.

If you are looking for a deep and complex story and well-developed, diverse characters, Last EXILE is on par with Cowboy Bebop. Each character has a wonderfully drawn personality. The action scenes in both tend to keep you awake and aware. And, of course, there are all those badass airships.

A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs.

If you liked Cowboy Bebop, you propably liked the attitude and the "realism" of it. I get quite similar vibes when watching Ghost in the Shell.
