Netflix's 'Cowboy Bebop' - First Look Images And Date Announcement


Recommended Posts

Meet Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) in Cowboy Bebop, premiering November 19th, only on Netflix.

COWBOY BEBOP is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.

Based on the beloved anime series, COWBOY BEBOP is executive produced by André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki and Masayuki Ozaki of Sunrise Inc., Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost. Nemec serves as showrunner. Original anime series director Shinichirō Watanabe is a consultant on the series, and original composer Yoko Kanno returns for the live-action adaptation. The series also stars Alex Hassell and Elena Satine.

As a huge Cowboy Bebop fan I wish I could get excited about this, but the next live action adaptation of an Anime, Manga, Comic or Video Game done by Netflix will be the first. Umbrella Academy started strong but I get the feeling the third season is gonna be a train wreck.

They all look great, way accurate to the show, but isn't Faye dressed a little conservatively? You know . . . for Faye?

There was -0% chance that Faye would be wearing the correct clothes given the oversensitive imbeciles that are in charge of these types of things nowadays. They don't want to offend the peons on Twitter who aren't going to watch this in the first place, so it turned out exactly like I thought it would. I don't hate it actually. I mean with the exception of the pants and not enough of anything showing, she has on yellow and the brown leather jacket. It'll come down to performance. Jet and Spike look pretty much as good as we could hope for, although I'm not sure why Spike doesn't have green hair. Everything else is 100% perfect but they didn't dye his hair? (or did they and I just can't tell on my monitor?) The English dub is perfect with the show, so I already know I'm going to have to get used to the performances unless they just flat out copy the voiceover actors' portrayals. I'm sure they're going to woke the crap out of this thing, but I expect as much so I'm ready to hate it if need be.

Kinda hard to tell. In that shot of Spike on the couch from the rear it kinda looks like there may be some green. If so, its definitely not the obnoxious green of Beast Boy from Titans. If not, it seems odd that they'd dye Faye's and not his.

Im a mega fan of Cowboy Bebop but not so much with anything live action adaptation of anything animated. I cant really think of any that have been good, especially based off anime. I will give it a chance but I have very little hope in this being good. I also find live action adaptations, especially these days, to not be necessary.

I checked with my brother, who is THE Cowboy Beebop fan, and he tended to share your take of it being a sign o' the times, BUT, he also pointed out that the stunt requirements for a CBB show would be pretty elaborate, and some of the stuff required of Faye you just can't do in hot-pants and a painted on halter-top.

He did agree with me that Pineda looks great in the role, and is probably as close as you'll ever get to a 3D anime girl.

As for live action adaptions of anime? I'm honestly more into LA adaptions of American 'toons, Ben 10, Scooby Doo, etc. (don't judge). I have, however, seen and totally dug Full Metal Alchemist, Gatchaman, and Space Battleship Yamato. Every single one I watched made me wish we could do movies like that on this side of the pond.

This looks really cool, I have a crush on Pineda. Have had for a long time. But man, I cańt wait for this to stream!

On another take, I think it’s funny how we’re the over sensitive imbeciles and yet it’s someone else always complaining about how probably something changed because of our whining.

You can’t do athletic stuff or stunts in hot pants? Youtube: wwe women’s match. There’s thousands of them. Hot pants galore. Same with the men. Jumping off top ropes, hurricanranas, backflips, front flips, ladder matches you name it. All wearing very little clothing. Most of the men just wear tiny trunks and the women wear those but something else to cover up top. These excuses are unnecessary, you can just say that feminism has become a parody of itself and we are now back in Puritan times, all in an effort to block the perverted gaze of men.

Hang with Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) as they kick ass and chase bounties...you know, if they don't get themselves killed first.
