Just started watching this Hitman Reborn. I've been told I have a lot of shit to shovel through before it actually gets good... but it does get good... apparently.
On ep. 24 on Bebop, and uhh... I can't echo everyone's sentiments on this. Only actually liked 2 episodes throughout the whole thing. Flame shields since everyone loves CB but ehh, why? Seriously now. Unless the last two episodes are fan-fucking-tastic, I call overhyped, or I just missed the train and should've watched it years ago.
Eh... No. If you don't like it now, then you wouldn't have liked it back then either.
Cowboy Bebop was a hit or miss per episode thing for me, just allot more great hits and allot less "why even make this episode?!" misses. Like everything else, Bebop is a fan favorite for various reason on a fan to fan basis. Me personally, the series did things on a more fluent level than most anime I seen. The chase scenes, the fights, even the jetship battles didn't feel like they were constantly cheaply cut from point to point like other anime such as Naruto would do, you could actually see the kick go from point A to point B.
The only episode I couldn't REALLY get into, was the Red Dragon Syndicate related episodes, not that they weren't good, but after seeing them once, I didn't really need to see them again.
But episodes like Cowboy Funk, Pierrot le Fou, and Brain Scratch keeps dragging me back into the series.
You pretty much summarized 65% of my post in this anime thread with that one quotation fix...
