 Cowboy Bebop is one of those classic underappreciated anime.  The main character, Spike Spiegel, is a bounty hunter (space cowboy) that chases after intergalactic bad guys for mad money.  His partner, Jet Black, a former cop who lost his arm in an accident, chases bounty heads by his side. Along the way, Spike and Jet encounter a stray dog, Ein, that becomes their companion, Radical Edward, a computer hacker (who is a girl, i  may add!), and Faye Valentine, an amnesiac bounty hunter who only has money on the mind. 
 The characters from left to right are jet, spike, faye, edward, and ein. I personally think this series has great characters that you get to know so well, it delves deep into each individual's past, and it feels like you know 'em and can relate to them. 
 I would have to say that Spike is my favorite character, because he's just awesome how he says : "BANG" and has great aim- I just love how he fights with his kung foo thing goin on!!!! He claims that he already died once...."to a woman..."; that woman's name was Julia, I believe-

There are 26 episodes total, and the cool thing about the show is that there is an individual music genre for each episode. For example, one episode is called: Heavy metal Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, Waltz for Venus, Ballad of Angels, Mushroom Samba( episode 17- a hilarious episode!) and my personal favorite episode, Toys in the Attic.

Episode 11, Toys in the Attic, teaches a lesson to us all: DON'T LEAVE THINGS IN THE FRIDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(you'll see why in time :D)

This series overall has great animation quality, was animated by studio bones (the same animation studio that did fullmetal alchemist and soul eater- two AWESOME SERIES I MAY ADD)and a great soundtrack!! This is defiitely a classic, and if you didn;t see this show yet, you don't know what you're missin'! Well, you know what they say, easy come, easy go.
