Cowboy Bebop, Coyote Ragtime Show Recommendations
Both series are influenced to a certain extent by music, specifically types of jazz. Bebop in Cowboy Bebop and Ragtime in Coyote Ragtime Show; so they share the same kind of musical vibe. Both series have a very sci-fi western feel and both are set in an alternate reality where space travel is both possible and used by the every day man. The characters in both series are also fairly similar; the main gang in Cowboy Bebop are bounty hunters and the main gang in Coyote Ragtime Show are treasure hunters (quite like pirates). Both series have episodes set in space and other episodes set
Both are series about a group traveling through space and give sort of a western undertone.
Asides that it is a space opera, it delivers what Coyote Ragtime Show failed to deliver. That is, a one heck of an adventure in space.
Both anime are about a likable group of characters traveling in space and their pursuit for cold, hard cash. Both anime have a memorable soundtrack (especially in Bebop) and both anime have a robot element in their plot. Both anime have a wizened veteran and an energetic young girl in their group. Both anime have a villain whose past is connected in some way with that of the protagonist's. Finally, both anime have a classic last episode.
