One of the series that generates the most hype (and fear) among which Netflix Currently in production is the live-action series Cowboy Bebop. The original anime ranks among the most beloved works of Japanese animation of all time, taking us across the galaxy at a rate of western neo-noir which made (and still does) the delight of fans, so the possibility that a live-action overshadows the Cowboy Bebop brand, as it happened with movies like Dragon Ball Evolution or Death Note, is very real.
For now, and with a few exceptions, it seems that Netflix is taking some steps in the right direction, especially in what we have seen in Geeked week celebrating the platform, where we had a brief preview preview of Cowboy bebop.
The small video piece features the presence of the three protagonists John cho (Spike Spiegel), Daniella Pineda (Faye Valentine) and Mustafa shakir (Jet Black), but what really stands out is the return of Yoko kanno to take over the live-action soundtrack.
The music from the 1998 Cowboy Bebop anime, which was provided by Yoko Kanno himself, was one of the series’ great attractions, helping us immerse ourselves in this universe where these bounty hunters made us philosophize more than once. That said, it also highlights the scheduled premiere window that the live-action Cowboy Bebop will have, which will be this fall, so we can expect the series between September and December 2021.

While the wait continues, we can only say … “Goodbye, space cowboy …”.
