It’s finally happening. After more than a decade of false starts the world is getting a live-action Cowboy Bepop from none other than Netflix.
Honestly this is probably for the best. The material won’t be easy to translate but the studio has a track record with live-action anime and clearly knows what they are doing. If it proves successful the 10 episode first could and most likely will spark a much more expansive universe.
Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine, and Radical Ed: a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll even save the world…for the right price.
