Ok, everyone knows that in the Star Wars Universe, Bounty hunters must appear clunky and inept in order to get any screen time. The stupider and clumsier a bounty hunter looks, the more legendary their exploits and abilities. I mean Boba Fett looks like a retarded Teutonic Knight meets the Rocketeer. IG-88's Head and Torso are the Transmission casing from a 78 El Camino. That brown lizard thing Bosk (or whatever) doesn't even appear to have opposable thumbs. None of these sleek, agile anime characters has any chance of actually catching Han Solo. That being said, I'm sure the crew of Cowboy Bebop will come the closest, because there are four characters, a dog, three small personal ships, and the Bebop itself. That translates into a LOT more merchandise for George Lucas to cram down our throats. Plus, I'd gladly listen to "Tank!" over "Yub-Nub" any day.
Jabba's made a big mistake hiring the Dirty Pair. Whereever they go, chaos and collateral damage are almost guaranteed to follow. I mean, those girls have blown up *the entire planet* on several occasions. And Jabba doesn't want Solo dead... yet.
On the other hand, the crew of the Bebop have had good experience escaping from almost certain doom, especially Spike and Jet. I say the boys and girls from the Bebop deliver the message to Han Solo and escape from the mayhem wrought by the Dirty Pair in the nick of time.

1.Yuri's the cutest of the members on both teams.
2.I've only seen Dirty Pair which gives them the advantage.
3.Has Cowboy Beebop ever had a situation where EVERYONE in the spaceport was really an assassin?
4.Yuri's the cutest of the members on both teams.
5.From the two episodes of Bebop I've seen, they don't break the laws of reality as much as Dirty Pair(which is a disadvantage).
6.Has the Beebop crew ever convinced people to negotiate a treaty after accidently wiping out the armies on both sides?
7.Did I mention Yuri?
I think that about sums it up.

Oh, YEAH RIGHT. Like ANYBODY can stand a chance against EDWARD. This is going to be over so-o-o-o quick...

You gotta go with the breasts
I don't believe either team has what it takes to capture Han Solo.
The fight should happen as follows.
Both teams arrive at Solo's location at the same time.
Six blaster shots fly off and kill all but one of the dirty pair.
::Remaining hunters:: Looks like your out of gas.
::Chewbacca Wookie slaps the last hunter after leaping from a tree::
::Solo:: .....Maybe not.

Han Solo was caught by Boba Fett, which shows that neither of the contestants won. But disregarding that, I'd have to say bebop for three reasons
Numbers: There are 4 members of bebop (not counting Ein), whereas the dirty pair are, well, a pair.
Weapons: Swords are useless agaisnt blaster (unless their lightsabers). Han Solo can handle blasters being shot at him. The falcons sheilds will miraculously hold. They deflect light beams. Missles are not light beams. Bebop has missles.
But neither of the above count if Ed simply hacks into the Falcon's computer. Han can't retake control of the Falcon. He can't even SPEAK to the computer. He get threepio to do it for him (the empire strikes back).
Therefore, bebop wins easy.

Cowboy Bebop, if only because of the funky theme song.
The Cowboy Bebop crew has this one down. Sure, they fight and bicker the whole time, but when it comes donwn to the nitty-gritty, the ALWAYS find their man.
Collecting the reward is a whole different matter...

Voters, we must not ignore the Cross-Genre Hentai Factor(tm).
Kei and Yuri have actually spent more screen time as naked models for hentai otaku then they have actually spent in their own episodes of the Dirty Pair series. Therefore, as the fanfiction element takes over, Expect Kei to, ahem, dispose of Leia and start getting it on with Han as soon as possible.
All that the Cowboy Bebop team has to do is wait for the post-coital moment of bliss to occur, and then take out both Han and Kei in one strike.
Expect Han frozen in Carbonite, Yuri wearing a brass bikini and chained to Jabba, and the Cowboy Bebop team to fly off in the Millenium Falcon as they hire on with Prince Xizor and the Black Sun.
I voted for the dirty pair because I see that they have the girls on their team...I invoke THE BABE FACTOR™.
The Joker writes:
No contest,folks!The Bebop guys and girls are good.But there's good...and there's better.I mean,the Dirty Pair is practically invincible.They blow up everything around them,including rivals,and always end victorious.Besides,they have got much more experience in comics and screen than the Bebop crew.
Now,if we want a truly worthy of seeing match,let's pit Kei and Yuri against Lobo,the Last Czarnian...and pray for the galaxy to have insurance.
Dark Queen writes:
My vote goes for the Dirty Pair for two reasons.
1.) Becuase they sound dirty. (All right bad pun, I'm sorry.)
2.) As far as I know, Cowboy Bebop is the only show of the two that airs on TV. Therefore, with that note in mine more people will vote for Bebop because more have seen it. Just thought I would give the "little" people a chace.
And, as always, Snootchie Bootchies!

The Analysis... As seen on TV...
Cowboy BeBop is more diversified. Jet has the law enforcement connections (which in the SW universe would correspond to Imperial ties). Spike has mafia connections which will help immensely. After all they are both syndicate people and Spike specifically was a mob enforcer. I don't believe that has been brought up yet. He'll have a good idea of where Solo could be hiding out. Plus, he has that shaman he visits from time to time. Another point not really elaborated is Faye I see her as quite willing to use her charms to hook Solo. (Which I'm sure can also be used by DP, but IMO Faye is hotter...er better drawn). Faye is a good team player when she deems it beneficial to her. Hmm... I'm trying to think what Ein brings to the table. He may be able to understand Chewie (Jeez this dog talked to a cow). Then there is Ed... when appropriate SHE could locate and neutralize the Falcon.
As a partisan of Faye Valentine I would gladly vote just for her. If I can make a prediction Faye would pretend to desert the Beebop team. Hook up with Solo, betray him -in the morning- somehow and deliver him to Jabba.
When I think about the Dirty Pair their strength seems to be luck and getting themselves out of dangerous situations. I don't see Han as one who would get them into that kind of trouble. A main strength of theirs is the Central Computer which is a boon. However I see that as very susceptible to tampering by Ed (who could theoretically re-assign them to another case).
All things considered, I must say that the Lovely Angels have their wings clipped faster than a Soloian reciting of "Its not our fault!".

Just a quick comparison.
If the Bebop team is working well, they catch the criminal who dies at the last moment.
If the Dirty Pair are working well, they catch the criminal alive... after causing more devestation than major armies.
Bebop will be listed on the "collateral damages" part of the bill.
Yet ANOTHER Anime battle, which hinders me from coming up with a long, witty battle analysis, thus forcing me to post this short and pointless one instead. It probably won't be published on the final Issue, thereby ruining my record. Five accepted Comments and it comes down to this? Damn, I'm bitter.
Anyway, I voted for Cowboy BeBop, basically because:
A) They have the advantage in numbers, and since they only need to find Han Solo before the Dirty Pair does, it's a definitive advantage.
B) They have a cute looking dog and people with cute looking dogs tends to win allot.
C) One of them is a mean looking guy with a badass-beard and what looks like a Borg implant. Now that's just scary.
I would have to say the Dirty er Lovely Angels. It's going to be a tough hunt for both of them considering the man involved, but in cases in which massive planetwide destruction is necessary (or not) to complete a mission, Kei and Yuri are the girls who can't be beat.

I was considering going for Dirty Pair but I then decided to put my vote for Bebop when I learned the target is Solo.
Despite the bad streak that's ben on not getting a good pay, Bebop has proven to be the ones for the job. Spike and Jake are excellent info seekers and talkers and have experts in finding people across space.
Only thing Dirty Pair does is blow things up.Finding Solo takes major percison which Bebop has and the Pair dosen't.
Demonicuss Krinn writes:
To catch Solo, you just can't go in with blasters a-blastin. You need to be cool, think it out, plan. Spike and Co. convince Han to talk to Jabba easily.
Before or after Han takes them both out?
The Crew Of the bebop have this one sinched
i mean who else can survive an alien bacteria or fight vicious in not one but 5 episodes
sadly enough well i wont ruin the ending of the series for all of u but SPike will catch han and if he donnt han dies bc thats how they lose most of their bounties hehehe

Hey, a professional assassin? Come on, he's gonna let the two day-glo doxies do all the leg work, and while his buddies back him up, he's gonna pop them in the back of their melon heads right in front of Solo, sending him a message he won't soon forget when cheap paint splashes all over his boots.....
Draco Starcloud writes:
Excuse me? You think Han Solo's gonna be caught by some down-on-their-luck bounty hunters who get beat by a lobster or some chicks who are lucky to escape each mission clothed are gonna be able to catch the great Han Solo? He and Chewie'll blast right through them in the Millenium Falcon and agree to take a desert hermit, a farm boy, and a couple of droids to Alderaan before these two groups will even come close!
So where's the "Han Solo" button?
We are dealing with anime characters in the Star Wars Universe, which means that teamwork MATTERS here. Proof? Stormtroopers.
Now, think about the target. Han Solo is notorious for smuggling and womanizing. Who is he more likely to allow himself to be causght by? A group of five people who rarely get along, or two hotties that wanna get REAL close to him?
As buxom as these may be, how can you deal with a guy as...well, crazy as Spike, an utterly insane gambler and super hot babe in Faye, a former cop in Jet, a wiz computer hacker in Ed, and the best character in Cowboy Bebop, Ein! Bebop has this match won, with a 5:2 advantage over the lovely ladies over the Dirty Pair. I love both groups, but one must die!
Well, I feel a bit stupid...
In a moment of driveling ignorance, I accidently submitted my comments on this fight over in the fight SUGGESTIONS section, despite the fact that both are clearly labelled. Oh well, here we go again...
I guess I'll give this one to the Dirty Pair. There are three reasons for this.
1)They are hot
2)I am a guy, so I like hot girls
3)I don't like Spike's hair
.... it seems kinda base to just vote for the hotter team.... maybe I should research this a little....
GO HOTTIES GO!!!
The Bopep gang wouldn't stand a chance against Dirty 'trousers'
Hehehe... Spike smokes the Dirty Pair like there's no tomorrow. That's not even counting Jet and the others. He has the HAIR OF DOOM, and the skillz to match.
Yeah, he's had his bad breaks, who hasn't? He is SUCCESSFUL sometimes, and don't forget that he managed to survive against Vicious, which is a feat in and of itself...
This fight is going to be over before you can say, "3, 2, 1, Let's jam."

if it had to be one of them I would say cowboy bebop, but we all of course know that they both cant because boba fett catches han solo..... ;)
Maybe people are starting to forget, but the main aspect of this is that the objective is to find him, not to get him blown up. Although the Bebop team doesn't always get the money, at least they can control the things they blow up, unlike the Dirty Pair, known across the universe for massive amounts of destruction every misison they partake in.
Kei and Yuri collectivly known as the DIRTY PAIR, from Ditry Pair and Dirty Pair flash, have faced many challanges and always overcame them, but they may face their hardest fight yet in the Cowboy Bebop crew. Both of these teams are very very good, but in the end it hast to be the Dirty Pair.
Hm..well, two Japan things I've each heard of approximately once. One a group of people who don't like each other, the other a pair of over-endowed females who have clothes-losing tendencies. This doesn't seem like a hard choice.

EYE On CBUB writes:
There really are quite a few fallacies floating around out there in opinionland. Kei and Yuri are physically battling the BeBop crew. Both teams are trying to kill Solo. Kei and Yuri are only good at blowing things up. The BeBop crew hate each other.
All these fallacies are tragically wrong. I say people should do their homework before open their hole. And this opinion writer says that this battle will show the ultimate skills of both sides. Perhaps a system or two may blow up in the process, but who's quibbling over trifles.
This has been EYE On CBUB.
Dirty Pair means two. As a Tom Clancy fan, I'm tired of people who say "screw reality", and this time those who would win in the real world will win. Four beats two. Only an idiot would carry around a sword when there's guns around. The cowboy group sounds like they can handle themselves when it gets down and dirty. The dirty pair look like a bunch of posers who would cry if their hair-do got messed up. Cowboy beb-bop has an ex-cop, who seems like he can easily take out some stupid upstart punks. In the real world experience beats anime stupidness and guns ALWAYS BEAT SWORDS! (Not to mention the whole strength of numbers thing AND varied skills).

hmm.. I have never heard of these two contestants. BUT!!! based on the name i would choose the dirty pair, what kind of crappy shitty ass name is cowboy beboop?
Frosty Bob writes:
Well I think the Dirty Pair will win this simply due to being better at teamwork.
The Bebop crew might be able to find him first but simply put Faye Valentine is likely going to try to take him by herself now Han is pretty quick on his feet plus he has a certain Wookiee behind him in a fight. She will definitely be outmatched.
After that little encounter The Dirty Pair will come in and overwhelm Han and Chewie give them Jabba's message and make sure Han knows if he doesn't pay up within the amount of time they will be back for the bounty.
In any case me and Jabba go way back I think knowing what will happen in the future I will talk Jabba into hiring up the both these groups as bodyguards knowing that Luke will eventually come he is going to be in for a surprise if things fall according to the Star Wars timeline in this universe. It would then look like the end of the Jedi.

Wow, Bebop got his own show, huh? I thought we wuzz friends, how could he have a show without me? After all we've been through working for Shreader and Krain! If it were Cowboys Bebop and Rocksteady, I sure we'd win.
Never heard of either of them.
Gotta say, the ladies with the big guns have MUCH better freudian imagery. And visible cleavage.
Who draws these things, anyway?
I'm gonna have to put this battle towards the Bebop and its crew. As much as the Dirty Pair are skilled they lack one important ingredient...EIN!!!
You just gotta love that little data dog.
Dirty Pair should win. They look better.
Chicks with weapons are hot.
Chicks with weapons are hot.
Dirty Pair will get Solo in the end, but they'll leave four planets, seven space stations, one Imperial stardestroyer, nineteen smaller Imperial ships, twenty-six Rebel ships (including Millenium Falcon; it really wasn't Kei's fault...) and the brain of George Lucas in smoking ruins...

Face it, this is Dirty Pair all the way. Why, you may ask?
The answer is simple: the Babe Factor (tm).
The Babe Factor (tm) is a simple rule: all else being equal, whichever team sends blood rushing to my crotch the fastest will win.
So, according to the Babe Factor (tm), Cowboy Bebop is gonna get blown up faster than bin Laden in Texas.
