Cowboy Bebop is decent, but like most other anime is very derivative and features convoluted storylines

There is much more to Cowboy Bebop than the story. That's what makes it so good. In one review I read it said Shinichiro Watanabe wanted to try something completely different: "jazz with an anime soundtrack" (paraphrased). In other words, the overall look and feel is just as if not more important than the story. Watanabe did the same thing with Samurai Champloo.
