Cowboy Bebop, a mythical anime
In 26 episodes, the anime Cowboy Bebop has made a serious reputation. The series offers an enthralling adventure where science fiction and film noir mix. Set in 2071, we follow a group of bounty hunters who travel in the spaceship, the Bebop. The main protagonists are the stylish Spike, his teammate Jet Black and the crook Faye Valentine who joins the team after a few episodes. Cowboy Bebop made an impression with the richness of its universe and its stories. But also, for its jazzy atmosphere. And this, from the absolutely brilliant credits, taken by the piece Tank! composed by Yoko Kanno and performed by the group The Seatbelt.
New images in the credits
Netflix, which has decided to offer soon a live version of Cowboy Bebop, is well aware that this generic is iconic. The streaming service has unveiled its version (in an article), with the same song, and which visually comes as close as possible to the original. A mixture of drawings, writings and scenes from the series. The opportunity to see a little more. For now, Netflix has only released images of the main roles.
