    Thanks Jeff,
    I just ordered mine. I love the show but didn`t want to buy the box set just for the bonus disc. This will surely look cool next to the Lain Lunchbox and the Akira Tin [​IMG]

    What's going to be in the box set that wasn't on the 6 discs? I love the show, but don't really want to rebuy it just for a smattering of extras.

    I looked for this information this morning as well. All I could find that was extra was a soundtrack CD, which is also available seperatly.

    Ric, you're buying JUST THE BOX, not the box set. The limited box set inclued the first soundtrack CD, which is available seperately anyway

    I'm glad to hear that the soundtrack is available separately, since I've already collected most of the individual Bandai Bebop sessions. Yoko Kanno is a goddess.
    I do not collect music from shows or anime as a general rule... but her stuff is so eclectic and cheese-free (mostly) that it's hard not to appreciate it.

    Thanks, Jeff!
    I had forgotten all about this, actually. I have bought a couple of the Cowboy Beebop disks and will continue to fill the box, when it arrives.
    Glad someone is on top of this kind of stuff. [​IMG]

    How's the quality on these discs? I've caught a few of the eps on the Cartoon Network and liked what I've seen, but the box set isn't exactly cheap.

    Could someone point me to a good place to buy the CD? What I am finding isn't making any sense, i.e., two imported soundtrack recordings for around $85!
    Thanks,
    Deborah

    I collect Anime OST's, but none of the ones which are mostly j-pop. If you're looking for good ones, look into Spriggan, Jin Roh, Berserk, Noir, Mononoke Hime, and movies/series of that calibre. They're more likely to have a somber score than a j-pop medley.

    Thanks, Eric -- those prices are much better! Which of the three soundtracks listed on this site is the one included with the boxed set? Or, if you are familiar with all three albums, which would you recommend? This is to be a gift for someone who has raved to me about the music in the series. While I own several of the DVDs, I have held off watching them because a friend wants to watch them with me and we have not yet found a time to do this.
    Thanks again,
    Deborah

    Do be careful. Anime Castle sells bootlegged Taiwan produced anime CDs (from Son May or Ever Anime). Those are not original prices and if you pay those prices they've listed you've been jipped (you can definitely get bootlegged CDs at much lower prices).
    However, imported Japanese CDs (non-boots) are roughly $30-35 per album (for one disc). Please buy original CDs and support the music industry in Japan.

    Oh, for those inquiring, the CD OST #1 for Cowboy Bebop that comes with the limited edition boxset *is not produced* in America, but in Japan, hence its retail value is pretty damn high.

    Jeff,
    Thanks for that info! I knew next to nothing about her career. I have a soft spot for portions of the Macross Plus soundtrack, reminds me of beautiful spring days in Greenville, SC.
    But I digress..
    Too bad to hear the soundtrack is such a rarity as a separate item. I have already collected Sessions 1-4. The truth is, I just couldn't wait any longer!
    Cheers,
    Joseph

    Kong,
    Thanks for the information. I certainly would rather support the original artitists but $30-35 for one CD is just a tad out of my price range, I'm afraid. I guess I am going to have to pass the information about this on instead of buying the CD as a gift.
    BTW, I am still not clear on which of the CDs floating around out there is the one included with the Cowboy Bebop boxed set. Does anyone know?
    Deborah
