The end of Cowboy Bebop - SPOILER ALERT - do not read if you haven't finished watching the show
Jan 22, 2008 5:24 PM
Simple question: would you have preferred a different ending?
A sort of happily ever after, or are you satisfied with how it ended?
This doesn't want to be an evangelion-style "the ending sucked" kind of topic, i'm just curious as to how you reacted. Also, if you could decide the end the show, what would your ending be like?
personally i was in tears at the end (yeah i know, i suck :P) but i don't think i'd change the ending for a "happier" one.

Nah...I mean, of course it's sad when you spend 20-some episodes with the hero and then he goes off and dies, but the ending was too epic to mess with. I can't imagine it ending another way and still being as good.
QFT. It may have been a real tear-jerker, but it was still great.

I agree with everyone else, it was a masterpiece of an ending. You can't just change an ending like that.
@masaba: It took me like 8 times watching the whole ending to see all that. Spike past was just to much to just keep running from, so that was the best way to take care of everything, finding revenge and truth.

basero said:Well the official quote is: "'Ive never officially said that he's died. At this point, I can tell you that I'm not sure if he's alive or dead. I think probably rather than being yelled at for killing Spike, I think ... people are more upset that I might make a continuation." - Shinichiro Watanabe
If Spike died then its the perfect ending.... Yeah i know thats kind of wrong. XD
He is dead!

The ending is perfect in my opinion, don't want further continuation or some sort
Since episode 1 i think he's already "dead", during the whole series he's been dreaming, and when what happened with julia simply put spike at a point of no return
That's why this anime is a masterpiece

I loved the ending... Although a bit sad... And the Bebop is all over... but it was epic... I mean... if He lived, then it would go down as something like the main character cannot ever die.... which is boring... he gets closer and closer to death... until he touches it. and dies... which is so awesome!!!

No way i think the end of bebop is great, okay probably the best anime character dies, but i feel it was for the best, he sacrifices himself to stop vicious.
IT could go both ways...
He could have sacrificed himself to stop vicious... or Vicious sacrificed himself to stop the doom of the world.

i dont think there could have been a better ending it was just perfect. if it carried on people would complain about it never ending and that the spike never dies no matter wat and how he fights.
even though i was sad to see him die and i did cry...but i loved it...

It was hinted that Spike was the son of Yuri from Dirty Pair, not Dirty Pair Flash if anyone remembers that anime. I also read someplace but I know with out a link not many people will believe me but anyways I read someplace that the director of the anime said that Spike did not die but he did not say it like that. He said something to the affect that Spike has been though tougher things in his life do you really think hes dead?

I Love How Faye Starts Opening Up To Him Begging Him Not To Go Back ANd Fight The Syndicate And Vicious...But I HEard Rumors That Wantanabe Might Continue The Story..U Can Check Cowboy Bebop's Wiki....He Said THis In An Interview That He Might Continue It...I Can See The Possibilties Cause Spike Could Have Easily Faked His Death

yeah I was 13 when I saw the end and I cried and ate a whole bag of jelly bellys lol but I think it would have felt unresolved if it had ended with a goofy ending and it would have been terrible if they had been like "oh no more bounty hunting were gonna go get safe jobs" yuck

To me I had tears raining form my eyes at the first half of ep. 25 and at the end I cried like there was no tomorrow. It was a great ending sad that Spike died though the only thing I would like to add to the ending is what happen to Jet, Faye, Edward, and Ein are they ok? And what happen to them? All I want to know is where are they now and what are they doing.

Had this show had a different ending I don't think I would've liked it as much, it just had to follow the spirit of the series, I also got emotional and was deeply moved but that ending made me love Bebop even more!=)))
P.S.: And I agree with what Spike2071 had to say.
