Cowboy Bebop (anime)

The anime itself is about a group of bounty hunters, the twist being that its set in space, however it retains that western feel to the animation with its story lines, morals and drawing style.

However what i find really inspiring about this anime is the title sequence. It uses like a comic book storyboard effect and it works really well. The images on the screen are broken up into multiscreen boxes like strips in a comic. The use of lines and borders help to really bring out the vast amount of images that pass on the screen.

To me the sequence is showing how the manga is coming to life, jumping of the page and becoming animated.
