Due to the violence portrayed in the Cowboy Bebop world and violence in Japanese schools, the series was briefly cancelled and an extra session was created as a final episode to the first thirteen episodes aired. Called "Session XX: Mish-Mash Blues," a compilation of clips from previous episodes, it aired on June 26, 1998 on TV Tokyo. The episode was never released on DVD. In it, the characters provide a philosophical commentary and end with the words: This Is Not The End. You Will See The Real "Cowboy Bebop" Someday!

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.

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
