Cowboy Bebop Shooting Star (manga)

Objectionable content: Significant
Plot Summary: This "retelling" of the Cowboy Bebop TV show features completely new stories with some of the original anime's elements. The characters have been redesigned and there are major variations from the series, but some basic things remain the same. Jet Black & Spike Spiegel are bounty hunters on the spaceship Bebop. Though they are supposed to be hunting for criminals on the run, the pair are better at catching crew mates. The duo reluctantly becomes a quintet with the addition of Ed the hacker, Ein the data dog, and the beautiful Faye Valentine. The Bebop crew also make an enemy in Scorpion, a 13 year old commander in the Dragon Head syndicate. He ruthlessly pursues Spike and friends where ever they go.

The original Japanese title was simply Cowboy Bebop. However, the Shooting Star moniker was added to the English release in order to differentiate it from the other manga series.
