Was looking for the "best" version of Cowboy Bebop and came across this. Uploading here for posterity. Original post below. --------- This is the complete original North American English dub DVD release from 2001, including all 26 sessions that spanned across 6 volumes. This has not been edited in any way. There are no watermarks, the picture is not stretched or cropped and is displayed in the full screen resolution of 720x540. It is presented exactly as originally intended. **Included:** English & Japanese Audio English Subtitles (Optional) **What do I mean by "original, unedited, and uncut?"** In 2005, the series was re-released in the same 6 volume DVD format, however, this time claiming to be "remastered" and brandishing the "Remix" tag, however, amongst their "remastering," there were a lot of completely ridiculous and unnecessary modifications. Unfortunately, this "Remix" release was also used to create the 2008 "Anime Legends" set as well as the Blu-ray edition released in 2014. Differences between original release and the "Remix" set include but are not limited to: * Removal of entire scenes, albeit mostly scenery. (Prime example: The beginning of Session 5 has 30 seconds of footage completely cut.) * The entire series has went through a brightening filter, washing out colors. * Sound effects have been completely changed in various places, not enhanced. (Example: The gunshot at the end of Session 1 doesn't even sound like a gunshot anymore, and it seems like the sound effect gets cut off before it even finishes. Ambience has also been completely removed from space scenes.) * Songs have been replaced in certain places. (Example: The next episode preview at the end of Episode 25 now has upbeat music that was used in Jupiter Jazz Part I's eyecatch on repeat rather than the depressing "Farewell Blues" that actually fits the dialogue and mood.) * Some songs start/stop at different times, while complete portions of some songs have been removed from scenes (most notably "Blue" from the final episode, as the choir ends and the doves fly by). These are only what I've observed from skimming Sessions 1, 5, 25, and 26. I can't imagine how many changes there truly are amongst the entire series. However, what's more disappointing is that the original series seems to be very difficult to find on the internet in any respectable form. Thus, I've taken the initiative to rip my personal DVDs and provide the definitive Cowboy Bebop release for fans old and new alike. I apologize for the large file sizes. It was the only way I could, personally, provide the series without degrading the quality. If someone is proficient enough in the art of video optimization and can cut down the file size without sacrificing the quality, feel free to compress and upload a smaller torrent. I'd appreciate some credit, though! I hope you enjoy the series in its original form! Be sure to pass it along, as with all torrents, the more people sharing, the faster the download.

0 seeds.. pls plant seeds for our planet
Yup, kinda pointless if you're not gonna seed. Piratebay link can be found in the Reddit post anon shared, if anyone is curious.
Piratebay and this one have same hash, perhaps adding additional trackers from there would start your download
there are seeds everywhere planted by that old guy don't you remember
love it when 18 y/o shows come online again :3


Video is Mpeg2 29.97 fps, so it could be theoretically deinterlaced to 23.976 fps.
and not shows that are 30 years old?
I'm amazed there aren't any BD uploads. :/
For those wondering: it's a remux of R1 DVDs, which makes it crappy by definition. Not only there's strong rainbowing (chroma has heavy artifacts around the edges), but also traces of some kind of ghosting (didn't inspect it enough, but it seems like it isn't caused by field-blending, more like frame-blending) and unnatural colors like on any other composite transfer/video with strong rainbowing. Original uploader stated that re-master has washed out colors, but it's hard to agree with this, esp. considering that colors look much more natural on BD (OZC). In fact, I just found **field** #36478 in first episode that has chroma from different frame and is **combed** (I suppose dumb field-matching won't help), which makes this an extremely poor source. TL;DR: this is for hard core fans that like to have every version ever released.
I just want this because I am a purist who doesn't want a George Lucas'd version for my first viewing.
Awesome, thanks so much!!!!
Is the Funimation Home Video/Streaming versions uncut?
thank you very much!
why is there a green screen flashing everytime?
All the currently-available releases are edited. This one is not. This one is as close to the original Japanese broadcasts as possible. This isn't for people who want to watch Cowboy Bebop in HD. This is for those who want the original unaltered versions. This was made for the people who would rather watch a non-anamorphic 1993 LaserDisc master of Star Wars than an edited version with Greedo shooting first, but in HD.
is there a DVDISO version of this original release?
Thank you for this!
