Hello everyone, this is Arthifis Speaking and this is the Anime Daily News! 😎 *insert generic news opening*
Netflix is creating a live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop
It’s everywhere, I mean… Every-freaking-where! Netflix dropped the bomb this Wednesday saying that they will launch a 10 episode Cowboy Bebop Series. The original series director Shinichirō Watanabe is on board as a consultant, according to Netflix, but there is still no confirmed air date (read the full article here)
My Opinion: Well, can I be truly honest, I hate when they pick Anime shows and do a live-action of them… It’s just what you get from the animation will never be able to be reproduced in a live series. In fact, that’s why I watch Anime and not actual series. So, I have to say that this one will probably be a pass for me. HOWEVER, it is nice to see that the original director is helping Netflix. Hopefully, they will do a better job this time around because of that (?)

My Opinion: Are you kidding? This is such a smart move and a great marketing campaign! My only problem is that I don’t know how to speak Japanese… For the rest, damn this was creative!!!!
