One of my favorite things about rewatching Cowboy Bebop is seeing all these one-line characters that you instantly know everything about from how they decorate their tiny box in space.
Cowboy Bebop Episode 19 “Wild Horses” (1998)
Macross Plus (1994)
Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (2003)
This bit always did reminds me a lot of similar “character seeing what the city holds” scenes in Kurosawa’s urban crime films like STRAY DOG and HIGH AND LOW, which, considering BEBOP’s Watanabe’s “throw in a little bit from everything I love” show, could be completely intentional.
