Originally aired in 1998, Cowboy Bebop follows a ragtag crew of bounty hunters traveling on a spaceship called the Bebop. It’s the year 2071 and the Inter Solar System Police (ISSP) have a legalized contract system in which bounty hunters can turn in criminals for rewards. This strange group of hunters aim to turn in as many criminals as they can and reap the rewards. However, they tend to get into a lot of mishaps that leave them without money.
