“Some search for meaning in life. Climbing is the only way I feel alive.”
Creating a live-action film of anything, whether it be a beloved Disney cartoon or an anime with a cult following, can be risky. Fans get very attached to characters and styles and are not always open to changes that may need to be made in order to make the project happen. Or maybe that’s just me. I have to admit that I scrunched my nose when I heard that Netflix was turning the anime Cowboy Bebop into a live-action film. All I could think of was the mess that was Ghost in the Shell. Shudder. But, Netflix has surprised me and has actually made me smile with their release of the “Lost Session” teaser.
