It is best to have a heart and a head, but if you have to have only one, the heart is better than the head.

I saw the final episode. It was pretty amazing, but they made one flaw in the final episode that won't ever be resolved.

So ashi used her powers, the same as her father aku, to send her and jack back to the past, and kill aku, so preventing akus dark future from occurring. This though meant without aku, ashi was never born, and she vanishes from existence.

Just one problem. If ashi was the one to teleport jack back to the past to kill aku, and thus erasing herself from existence, how then could she have existed in the future to send jack back, if she didn't exist?

This created a paradox, one we're never get an explanation for.
A time portal permits one to travel to the past.  Ashi had that ability through her father Aku.  If you have the ability to go to the past, it must mean you can exist there for "some" time.  Her time was used as the timestream adjusted (coff, coff). 

Beyond that, best to just let it go. We aren't talking real science here.  ;)

I haven't liked much since Ghost In The Shell and Cowboy BeBop.  Some Fullmetal Alchemist.

Yes, Fullmetal Alchemist was interesting.  Did you ever see the extension of the story, where the protagonist crosses universes to Nazi Germany?

Watched the first ep of cowboy bebop.

The art is great. But not quite hooked. Will watch ep 2 and 3 probably. But hope it hooks me by then or I might lose interest. I've heard great things about it though.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

And let me add that it seems to be a Japanese version of US culture out in space as bounty hunters.  They seem to love us as "cowboys"...  Forgive me, any Japanese participants for the opinion, but random American lingo seems to be in high regard there.  I mean the title makes no sense whatever except for the American words.

And as long as I am going out on a thin limb here, how is "Cowboy Bebop" understood elsewhere?  The title doesn't even make sense to ME!

Japanglish.  Japanese people speaking English their won way ... and thinking we will understand them.  Inflation = Infure for example.  They are an island chain unto themselves.  Bebop is the name of the spaceship the bounty hunters (Cowboys) use.
