Cowboy Bebop, the immensely popular classic anime, has had a series, a movie, and two manga—all of which have come to the West. However, there is one Cowboy Bebop story that you may not be aware of as it has never left Japan: the PlayStation 2 title Cowboy Bebop: The Serenade of Reminiscence.

Cowboy Bebop: The Serenade of Reminiscence was released on August 25, 2005, in Japan. It has never received a Western release.
