Critic Reviews for Waltz for Venus

While not a standout of the series, Waltz For Venus is a damn solid entry in the Cowboy Bebop saga.

Rocco Bonnaro is a nice little tragic figure for Spike to interact with and one who's more amiable and goofy energy is a nice offset.

A bouncy but uneven episode.
