I’m nonetheless undecided how I really feel about this upcoming Netflix adaptation of the traditional Cowboy Bebop sequence, however thanks largely to the present’s traditional “Tank!” theme tune, the intro is a banger at the very least.
The live-action intro was revealed throughout Netflix’s fan occasion named TUDUM.
(I suppose that sounds just like the annoying bong noise that performs once you open Netflix. Is that intelligent? I don’t know.)
The difference stars John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, and Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black. First introduced again in 2018, the Cowboy Bebop live-action sequence is an adaption of the unique anime and can air on Netflix this November.
Followers of the sequence have been skeptical about how the present will end up, whilst excellent news was revealed. For instance, Yoko Kanno is closely concerned within the present as its important composer. She even is going to create new tracks for the live-action adaptation. Costumes and units revealed by Netflix over the previous few months have additionally seemed strong, sticking principally to what was seen within the unique 1998 anime created by Shinichiro Watanabe.
This intro is one other bit of fine information for the sequence. Positive, the traditional tune is generally carrying this intro however I do admire how trustworthy it’s to the unique. Although it does teeter between cool and tacky. However that’s not a horrible place to be at, particularly for an intro as trendy and funky as Cowboy Bebop’s iconic opening.
Nonetheless, Netflix’s monitor report with live-action adaptions isn’t nice. And the general historical past of American remakes of anime movies and reveals is affected by bombs, failures, and fully terrible initiatives. Stuff like that live-action Ghost within the Shell or the horrendous live-action Dragonball movie. However even when this present sucks or finally ends up being meh, at the very least each episode will embody this rattling strong intro sequence. That’s good!
