synopsis

Explore the far reaches of the galaxy in this undeniably hip series that inspired a generation – and redefined anime as an indisputable art form. The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motley lot of intergalactic loners teams up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot Jet is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh Corgi named Ein. On their own, any one of them is likely to get lost in the sprawl of space, but together, they’re they most entertaining gang of bounty hunters in the year 2071.

synopsis

Toma and Index are back in an action-packed season that brings back the characters you love while introducing a host of new spell-wielding allies and enemies. Protecting Index has never been easy, but when several groups begin to fight over sacred magical relics, keeping the nun safe becomes downright impossible in the city where science and the supernatural go hand-in-hand.

Cowboy Bebop Jam Sessions: Marathon Party Ideas

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 2.23.16 PM

 

With Cowboy Bebop finally coming to Blu-ray on December 16, we expect more than a few of you will be gathering with friends to watch the classic sci-fi western in glorious high definition. We thought we would share a few ideas for anyone throwing their own #BebopJam Session at home!

1)     Ein papercraft!

 

Okay, technically these could be any Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but we found a great and free

printable papercraft project to puttogether your own adorable hyper-intelligent pup. Use them

for décor or as an activity for your guests, if they can take their eyes off the screen at all!

 

 

 

 

 

…..Click here to start folding!

2)     Colorful refreshments!

 

summercocktail_fuzzynavel

Beverages are fun to theme after characters. For example, if you wanted something inspired by

Faye’s classic yellow and red attire, you might offer lemonade garnished with raspberries…or, if

your crew is over 21, you might consider more adult options.

Green Peppers and Beef.jpg3)     Snacks!

 

Snacks, of course, are key to any party. And no Cowboy #BebopJam Session would be complete

without Bell Peppers and Beef…with or without beef.

Here’s a particularly creative take on the dish.

Zombie-obsessed Furuya is making a potion to reanimate his dead cat when he meets Rea. She’s about as miserable as a girl can get, thanks to her creepy, domineering father. When the pain becomes too much, she tries to commit suicide with a sip of Furuya’s weird elixir. The potion doesn’t kill her – but it does turn her into a zombie after she falls from a cliff.

Now that Rea’s undead and ready to finally live, she hides out with Furuya, who’s always dreamed of having a zombie girlfriend. Their one-of-a-kind relationship comes with some challenges, like the fact that Rea is decomposing. Even worse, her freak-show dad is dangerously determined to get her back under his control. As Furuya fights to keep his ghoulfriend safe, Rea finds the secret to resurrecting her happiness: Live like you’re dying – even if you’re already dead.
