Cowboy Bebop Ballad of Fallen Angels

Postby sweetestkuma » Tue Sep 28, 2004 4:57 am

Wow I was kind of shocked to not see this in here. This has to be one of the best episodes in the whole series. Just the intensity of everything happening. It is the first time in the series they gives a look into spikes past and has awesome fight scene. We also meet Vicious spikes counter part. So if you havent watched Cowboy Bebop. Go do it do it now.

I have to say, this was my favorite episode of the series. It also included my favorite song of the series, Rain. This song was the perfect setup to the shoot out in the church, which has got to be my favorite shoot out in anime history.

I did like this episode, however, most people I talk to agree that they like Waltz for Venus more

Waltz for Venus clearly has the edge sentimentally over Ballad, Jupiter Jazz 1 and 2 were also great in the drama department. But not nearly enough action in them to qualify as my personal favorites, though Jupiter Jazz gets close.

I love the scene when he fall sout the window. the music from this episode is definetley the stuff i listen to most when i listen to the soundtracks. but if you guys want sentimentality go for the final episode thats all im saying. ohh how about favourite funny ones like toys in the attic and mushroom samba.

I loved both of those, my favorite funny episode would have to be Cowboy Funk.

well Ballad of Fallen Angels was definately one of the best in the series. Many websites gave it a 9 out of 10 which is extremely good. And I don't agree with liking Waltz for Venus better but it is good. The best is definately The Real Folk Blues prt. 2[/img]

I will join the masses and admit that this (Ballad of Fallen Angels - a very telling title) is one of my favorite (top 3) eps. This was a real turning point in the series for me. With the introduction of Vicious you get a bit of insight into Spike's motivations and very mysterious past history as well as a wonderful teaser of things to come.
I will also agree that this ep has some of the best music and art of the series to boot!

*I also have to also disagree on Waltz for Venus (a great ep) BUT.. Jupiter Jazz 1 & 2 take it away for me!

Yeah Ballad rocks, awesome fighting..Vicious introduced :D . Would have to say my three fave are Jupiter Jazz 1/2, The very Last Episode, and Ballad. Songs are nice in Ballad and Last one..so they win over Jupiter Jazz.

Yeah I'd have to say that this is one of my favorite eps also its a close second to Real Folk Blues Part 2.

Bobop favorite ep.

Postby Redlock » Fri Nov 26, 2004 1:16 pm

I'm gonna have to go against the pack. Though the others were good, my absolute favorite had to be "Pierrot La Fou". After all there is nothing more cruel than the mind of a child. :twisted:

Lol that episode was pretty damn awesome too, but ballad and real folk blues (both parts) take the cake for my favorite ones. That would have to be second probably.

BoFA is a pretty damn good episode, definitely one of the best in the series. not my favorite though, since i'm a sucker for comedy, so any episode centered on comedy (or ed) is great for me. toys in the attic is one of my favorites out of the whole series, especially the ending.

BOFA Kicks some serius ass 8-) ! Its my faverite ep for one reson, the fall, when spike starts falling out the window and he flashes back then it shows the grenad in a half frame of the screen and the side of vicious face and it goes click, ckick click and vicious looks at it then goes to spikes falling veiw and you see the window explode :shock: . That is why this is my faverite ep :wink: . if any ones got that part of the ep could you please give me a cope of it.
