Both Protagonists are kinda labeled as the anti-heroes and both have a dark past which both have antagonists that can be compared to with Vicious and Makishima. Set in a futuristic world with a Noir atmosphere, its a must see!
Both anime share a near future setting where technology has an important role in society. Kougami is a character similar to Spike in the way they think and both have an archnemesis which wants to play with their mind and twist it.
Cowboy Bebop has a unique style, while Psycho-Pass tries to put the viewer to reason about society. Psycho-Pass will surely not disappoint Cowboy Bebop fans.
Psycho-Pass has that dark futuristic adult story telling just like Cowboy Bebop minus the Jazz.
Both series are set in the future and center around police work, cowboy bebop specifically bounty hunting. Kougami and Spike are very similar in personality as well as Makishima and Vicious.
How do I put this... Cowboy Bebop is like the tv series Firefly but grittier and cooler. Psycho-Pass has a Cowboy Bebop feel but it's like a mix o Bebop, Bladerunner and the Minority Report with a tad of Equilibrium thrown in there.
Both are Sci-Fi, both have the "cool" factor, and both are filled with great animation, music and characters.
If you love either of these then I really can't imagine not loving the other. Both are amazing action Sci-Fi series!
story is not related..hands down
but i found the main characters similar
spike spiegel = shinya Kougami
both have a dark past
the arch nemesis of both the characters are similar in some ways to the protagonist in either of the series
all in all its a must watch!!
psycho pass has a great story
-Both series take place in the near future
-Both series have a main male protagonist who uses guns and has a badass attitude (Spike being the layed-back, energetic kind while Shinya is the more calm, collected kind)
-Both series have great action scenes
»Cast of very likable characters
»Strong male lead with reckless behavior and great skill
»Strong antagonist role with twisted ties to the male lead
»Plot revolves around the main characters hunting down and chasing criminals
»Great English dub
Both Spike and Kogami remind me of one another
- dark past
- enemy they're bent on getting revenge on for hurting someone they cared for
The supporting characters are also interesting bc like cowboy bebop, each supporting character has their own stories that are told
Also set in the future, with action/crime elements embedded in both
If you liked Psycho-Pass's characters, you will likely like Cowboy Bebop's characters. Spike Spiegel and Shinya Kougami have an almost exact personality match, except Spike is a little more... humorous. Vicious and Shōgo Makishima are also very similar in terms of intelligence and looks. Shōgo is definitely more cunning. Jet Black and Nobuchika Ginoza are also very similar. They have a similar backstory, overall demeanor and even looks. Both Spike and Shinya are main protagonists and both Shogo and Vicious are main antagonists. Spike and Jet's companionship is similar to Shinya and Nobuchika's companionship. There's not really too many similarities beyond that other than the
You get a very similar thrill watching Psycho Pass as you do with Cowboy Bebop. It also has to be said that watching the battle between one of the main protagonists and the antagonist feels like deja vu.
Part of what makes Cowboy Bebop so great is its leading protagonist, Spike. We know about his dark past and throughout the show he's sort of labeled as an anti-hero. The same could be said of Psycho-Pass, who's lead is similarly dark. The setting is fairly similar in that it's futuristic and has a noir feel to it. The entire show revolves around a new kind of policing that determines the state of mind of citizens before they even commit a crime. However, this system seems to have some serious faults.
