Comment on Cowboy Bebop, Speak Like a Child (Session 18)
An guide to one episode of my favorite animes. From the page:
So what exactly is going on? There’s some kind of link between memory and fortune. Faye, deprived of all her past, has nothing but fortune. That link is created by two things: stories and technology. Stories – like the one Jet tells Ed – work off the premise that if we remember correctly, we will have good fortune. It is no coincidence treasure hunts end up being moral lessons, or actual explorations of one’s past, and are perhaps more deadly than bounty hunting.
