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.

Sort of a similar jazzy and cool style and atmosphere....... takes a basic formula and gives it a really nice and unique feel.

Melty Lancer had the same sort of smooth bounty hunter air to it. I preferred Melty Lancer because it had lots of sci-fi in it, as opposed to a futuristic world that looks really close to ours, with rickety spaceships.

Both of these series are quite similar with getting jobs in space that affect the plot some how. But if you liked one if you like the other. Cowboy Bebop I did like a lot more and it was more serious, However if you like bumpin through space with a bunch of crazy crew-people, this is the only way to go.
