I'm surprised that there are no reviews here for Cowboy Bebop XX: Mish Mash Blues.

Here's how we start: The story consists of 13 episodes that aired before this episode came out. Because of the violence portrayed in Japan, it was decided that there will be an extra special that never appeared on DVD.

The story will have the members of the Bebop that you've come to know narrate on how Bebop goes. They take turns narrating the episode about themselves and everything. The story is what enthused me, the Bebop talking to you instead of themselves, although there are some breaking the wall moments in the read more

There's not much to say about an episode where the characters just... talk about themselves in the series. I only watched this just to round out all the episodes. If you're expecting some kind of OVA... don't. This is really just a clipshow/review episode for a very specific audience (i.e. The original Japanese fans that didn't get any Cowboy Bebop due to the hiatus) and as such shouldn't really be considered an actual episode. A shame they didn't bother to dub this, it would have been great to hear the english cast in this.

A common misconception of this episode is that it's just a recap of the 13 or so episodes that came before it. However, that is far from the truth, as it is in fact a compilation of the various messages that Cowboy Bebop was trying to convey up to this point in the form of 24 "life lessons".

This was made with the belief that the anime would end at that point, so it does it best to try to make sure the creators left something meaningful behind. The 24 parts/lessons are insightful and interesting, and are well accompanied by the clips from the previous read more

After watching this special I was simply speech-less.

I was like "How did the producers of Cowboy Bebop manage to cool down before the cancellation of the main anime and make such an unique special episode?" I think this was the special that surprised me the most among all specials I have watched. This because, in my opinion, the producers couldn't have handled the (almost) cancellation of the main anime better. They just thought "Is our anime being cancelled? You know what? We'll just make an episode here starting with "Hey guys, Nothing lasts forever. All things must come to an end. This is the so read more
