It was an amazingly strange show. I think the creator had some issues to work through.
This is symbolic.
Cars also show up all over the place in the TV series. In that version, they represent a number of important themes, such as cocks.
By the way, the above should be proof that Utena is one of the best things Japan ever did.
That is one of the other best things Japan did.
MY NAME'S KID. I'M HERE TO AVENGE THE DEATH OF YOUR CAT!
I saw this. In a theatre. I hadn't seen the series so I assumed that this made some sort of sense in context. But no, after talking to other people who knew the show, the lesbian luge and every other fucking thing in this movie made no sense to anyone.
At the post-movie Q&A they asked the producer/director (they had someone from the movie there, can't remember who) and he said that he really liked cars. That or the answer was lost in translation.
The "anime that doesn't suck" tag is the worst tag. Nobody actually uses it for anime that doesn't suck (Cowboy Bebop and Studio Ghibli). Still, 3 stars for crappy animation about something that is, admittedly, pretty crazy.
There are more good animes besides Bebop and Ghibli, you snobish nerds just need to get off your horses once in a while.
'Cowboy BeBop' is an overhyped, boring animation with bland characters and a standard (if well-executed) anime story. Nothing there is challenging or tackles any interesting themes, and I am not endeared to the characters an iota. This is somewhat mollified by an admittedly kickin' soundtrack. It's basically 'Lupin III' in space with a little 'Trigun' and 'Hellsing' for seasoning, despite the fact that 'Lupin III' was good enough on its own without adding any crap to it.
If 'Cowboy BeBop' were a band, it would be the Doors.
car wash fetish always a winner with the anime crowd
