After being teased with the first images and then the opening credits, we are all pumped up for the live-action Cowboy Bebop. But before the live-action series lands on Netflix, there is a “party warmer” coming your way: the original anime series.
The original anime/manga ended in 1999 and so, it is good to catch up and recap this cult anime series before you dive into the live-action series coming to Netflix on November 19.
The original Cowboy Bebop anime series will start streaming on Netflix Worldwide on October 21 which should leave you more than enough time to catch up with the anime that started it all.
Cowboy Bebop is a sci-fi neo-noir anime that follows a team of space bounty hunters who travel around the solar system to catch criminals in return for a reward.
These space bounty hunters are referred to as “Cowboys” and the protagonists’ spaceship is named “Bebop”.
Anyways, as expected from such stories, each member of the team does have his or her own troubled past which eventually caught with them.
As far as we know, the live-action series’ first season will focus on the three original crew members: Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, and Jet Black.
Here are the official words announcing the original anime series coming onto Netflix:
