Honestly, I think that most people who are fans of this series have long-since picked this up for their collection. I'm personally behind on that myself, and finally decided to scoop it up before the dvds decided to stop going out of production (it's still being produced, by the by).
However, for anyone new to the anime scene, Cowboy Bebop is easily one of the best series to come out of the past 20 years. It's a fun, action-packed show focusing on a group of bounty hunters oozing with personality, with the flair of sci-fi and westerns mixed together, all accompanied with a soundtrack encompassing the genres of rock, blues, jazz, and more.
I would even suggest this to people who normally wouldn't want to watch an anime series, due to it being one of the more "western" series out there. It's not a very "Japanese" show in that there's no culture shock to watching it, and despite having a flowing narrative throughout the entire series, most episodes can be watched as standalones due to a plot that wraps up before the credits roll. Many people even consider the dubbed version to be superior, just for how well the voice cast is.
Anyway, I can't recommend this series enough. It holds up as well today as it did nearly 20 years ago, and is always a fun watch.
See you, space cowboy.
