Cowboy Bebop: Live-action Plot
Cowboy Bebop which ran terrifically during the years 1998 and 1999 revolved around the story of a group named Woolong, a team of bounty hunters who had the task of catching threatening criminals of the huge galaxy to earn money. Quite an interesting job isn’t it? Although a bit risky! But the Woolong had to deal with their own darkness first.
