14 Oct – Good news for "Cowboy Bebop" fans everywhere: Netlix has now acquired the right to stream all episodes of the western space action-adventure anime!
The animated series, considered one of the greatest anime of all time, is created by Shinichirō Watanabe with screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, and revolves around the adventure of three bounty hunters as they travel cowboy-style around the solar system catching criminals.
Bebop is the name of these bounty hunters' spaceship - very much like the Millennium Falcon. The series follows Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine and Jet Black; voiced by Kôichi Yamadera, Megumi Hayashibara and Unshô Ishizuka respectively. There is even a resident pet Corgi named Ein, and a girl named Edward will be joining the trio later as she proves to be useful with her hacking skills.
The anime will be premiering on the streaming site on 21 October in time for the live-action series, which has John Cho, Mustafa Shakir, and Daniella Pineda playing the three bounty hunters Spike, Jet Black and Faye Valentine, respectively.
The live-action, directed by Alex Garcia Lopez and Michael Katleman, is set to premiere on 19 November.
