Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
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.
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.
Crazy, inspiring, modern and with AMAZING music. This are two of the best anime ever made, if you love one you are alse love the other
In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...
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.
In a post-apocalyptic future, mankind now lives alongside demons, spirits and other supernatural beings. Everyone is interested in coexistence, but every society has rotten apples. The bounty hunter group "Hyper Police" does its part to catch and contain criminals, and with employees such as the half-cat, half-human Natsuki and Batanen the werewolf, law-breakers better watch out.
What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...
Infinite Ryvius is the antithesis of Cowboy Bebop, but at the same time they are both anime about people coming to terms with their past, about the weakness of being human, and the lengths people will go to survive. Both also share the fact that they are excellent.
Two space travel series with strong ensemble casts. Though I wouldn't call it light-hearted by any stretch Cowboy Bebop is probably the less serious of the two, but also has a smaller cast overall and explores in greater depth the relationships between them. Both ask deep and penetrating questions about human nature and the value of living.
