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

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

For any cowboy bebop fan, this is a gem which you do not wanna miss out! :)

It is not a typical special nor is it a recap. This is a somewhat insider episode which let every of the main cast speak for themselves therefore giving us another chance of better understanding these great characters with so much depth!

There is not much to say, only that not watching this if you are a cowboy bebop fan, then you will miss out something quite good ^^

And even for people who have watched the series long time ago will probably still love it because it really highlights their read more

I really wasn't expecting this Special to be so good.

Story: this episode doesn't really have a story but it was really intersting seeing everyone speaking their minds, which every character made me look at life in a different way.

Art: Not much to talk about, it's the same as the original show.

Sound: The sound on this episode was on point, the soundtrack was really catchy and the ending song was really good too, it's called "空を取り戻した日" by SHAKKAZOMBIE.

Character: Not much to say here too, same characters as the oroginal show and same personality/tought process.

Enjoyment: I really enjoyed this episode and I wish we had more like read more
